Would You Rather Be Happy Or Would You Rather Be Right?

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche
 
I have addressed this subject before, but it seemed appropriate to take it out again in response to general reactions to our election. Many of us are creating dissent and disharmony, wanting others to agree that our opinions are the right ones and fuming when they don’t agree.
 
Is anyone served when we use our beliefs as weapons and bludgeon each other over the head with them? In 1000 years will it really matter who was president? Let’s agree to turn our energy and attention away from the dissent and think thoughts of hope for our unity and our peaceful future as a nation and as a world.

Do You Believe That What You Were Is What You Will Be?

“Remember then: there is only one time that is important.  Now!  It is the most important time, because it is the only time when we have any power .” Leo Tolstoy
 
 
Sometimes we fall into the habit of thinking that our past defines us.  We believe that the mistakes, failures and successes of our past determine what lies ahead.  It isn’t true.
 
You are a creator. You cannot help but to create a day today, no matter what you do, but you can choose how you will create this day and who you will be within this day and all of your days to come.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is the best day of your life!

Have You Planned Ahead To Be Positive?

“That’s how you glorify something. You put a lot of energy on it. The vision that you glorify in your mind; the ideal that you enthrone in your heart, this you will build in your life. This you will become.”Mary Morrissey
 
When we are in the habit of something, say, complaining, whining, being negative, it takes effort and planning to create a new habit.  Create some signals for yourself that will remind you to pay attention to what you’re paying attention to.  Mary Morrissey has handles.  I have pets.  
 
Every time I see or touch a pet I remember to tune in and see what I’m doing; where I’m putting my energy. If I catch myself being negative or giving energy to something I don’t want, I make a change. I choose something positive to focus on and a more pleasant way to be. What is a trigger you could use to remind yourself to “pay attention to what you’re paying attention to”?

Do You Have A Sacred Time and Space?

“Self-care is not selfish.  You cannot serve from an empty vessel” —Eleanor Brownn
 
Modern people, especially women, are so busy with the hurry and worry of everyday life that we never take a moment to care for ourselves; to replenish and rejuvenate.  
 
This way lies madness and a short life. Make a time and a space that is all your own. Hold this space and time sacred and insist that others do the same.
 
Indulge yourself in whatever ways make you feel good and give yourself the chance to be quiet, to connect with your highest self.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is the best day of your life!

What Do You Love?

“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” — Luke 11:9
 
Most of us plan our lives by asking the question “what CAN I have, do, be and give?” The better question is “What Would I Love?” You can be, do, have, give and create anything you want.  What would you love?
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is the best day of your life!

What is One Small Step You Can Take Today?

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” — Lao Tzu
 
 
The number one way we can signal the universe what we are wanting and intending is to take a step in the direction of that dream.  What is one small step you can take today?
 
If you believed your dream were possible, what actions would you be taking? Dreaming of a new home? Go look at houses! Dreaming of finding your soul mate? Write your love story; tell the universe what your love looks like.
 
Clean out part of your closet to make room for your lover’s things.  One of the mantras taught to us by Mary Morrissey as Life Mastery Consultants is “do what you can, with what you have, right now.” Today, take one small step in the direction of your dream!
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is...

Do You Have At least One Outspoken Cheerleader?

“Real friends support you no matter what.  If you want to be a tunafish, it is my job to encourage you to be the best damn tunafish you can be!” — Unknown – Rebel Circus?
 
 
We all must have at least one person in our lives who will refuse to agree when we are criticizing ourselves.  When we say, “I don’t think I can”, they say “I KNOW you can!”  These are the people who believe in us, no matter what, and stand for us while we rally our own confidence and self esteem.
 
It could be your coach, your lover, your best friend or even your mom, but seek out people who will be your cheerleaders. My Meditation Teacher, davidji, calls this your “front row”.
 
Look around in your life today and make sure there is at least one person in your front row, cheering you on at the top of their lungs.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your...

Are You Being Serene?

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.” — Reinhold Niebuhr
 
 
This very old prayer, adopted and made famous by Alcoholics Anonymous, is truly a great blueprint for life; simplify things up a lot!  It means to wake up your observer self, be your best self, allow the joy and peace and abundance that are your birthright to flow into your life.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is the best day of your life!

Do Your Beliefs Serve You?

“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” —Henry Ford
 
 
Every time I am around people, I hear them voice beliefs that not only don’t serve them, they’re just not true!  Like “oh that always happens to people in their 50’s.”  “Everyone starts to get aches and pains at a certain age,”  “Rich people took advantage of others to get rich…” just to name a few of the most common beliefs that are making us sick and old before our time and keeping us poor. 
 
The truth is that we were born abundant and meant to live in bliss for our short time in this human body.  If you have to make an agreement with something, make it something that serves you!  Believe your body and mind are strong and growing, that you get better looking every year. Adopt beliefs that serve you, not ones that hold you back and tear you down. Believe that...

Are You Fully Present?

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly” — Buddha
 
 
Oftentimes we humans are so busy being angry at past wrongs, or worrying about what might happen tomorrow, that we completely miss out on the sacred here and now; this very moment where all of our power lies. A well lived life is made up of a whole bunch of well-lived moments.  
 
You can start right now, in this very moment to be present, to be aware, to be grateful, to be in joy. But you must decide; no one can do this for you.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is the best day of your life!
