What a year!! I know it's not even Halloween yet, but when I stop for a moment & look back on the last 10 months, I am simply awestruck by what is possible. And it fills me with immense gratitude for all of what my life has brought me & continues to bring me.
Among the things I am grateful for: being part of a year-long Business & Coaching Certification Program for Women; presenting my original program, "Live Deliberately" at Kripalu; traveling to Arizona & California & Paris; 3 trips to Kripalu to facilitate & teach yoga for the Inner Quest Intensive; a professional photo shoot; completing my first book; launching this blog, my newsletter & revamping my website; AND up next: a trip to Florida for graduation...
It's truly remarkable.
It is nothing short of miraculous what we can do when we let go of self-doubt, shame, guilt and fear and just leap, trusting the net will follow.
I'm not sharing all this to brag. It is to serve as a reminder for you that all of what you desire is available for you too. It is an invitation to celebrate how good life can really get when you let it.
If you are rolling your eyes at all this 'happy talk' right now, I understand. You might even be coming up with 101 reasons to justify, argue, defend or explain why you & your issues are different, unique and special.
I can tell you this for certain. No matter what your issues are, what you think becomes your reality. And then when you think about what your "reality is" you get more of it. It can be a vicious & painful cycle if you do not learn how to navigate it. And the sooner the better.
Here's how it works. Like attracts like. So, whatever thoughts you think will bring you more thoughts like them. If those thoughts are negative, you will attract more negative thoughts. Before you know it, you’ve created a vortex of negative energy that has you feeling as if life is just a sh*t-storm of suck. Your reality becomes a vibrational match to what you have been thinking, saying & putting your attention on. And it directly effects your health, your wealth, your love life, everything.
Life is not happening to you. You are a co-creator of your reality.
I know, I know. You don't want to hear that. Especially if life is suckin'- it big time right now for you. I get it. It is so much easier to just blame your circumstances on other people, on time, on money, on your job, on your partner. We've all done it at some point. But blaming doesn't solve the problem. It gives away your power.
You must decide to no longer complain or make excuses. You must choose to do whatever it takes to get yourself out of your funk and commit to your happiness & health, no-matter-what. When you make THAT DECISION to thrive instead of just survive, miracles happen and your reality begins to shift.
Change your thoughts -Change your perception - Change your energy - Change your experiences.
Choose to take right action. Make your thoughts, words and actions match the desires in your heart. Be unapologetic about taking a stand for you and your desires and be tenacious. Advocate relentlessly for your health & happiness. Then celebrate as you begin to see your extraordinary life unfolding.
One last note: Perfection is non-existent. So if you are waiting for it to come...let's just say, death will come sooner. Imperfect action in the right direction is better than no action at all.
