Howdy, So much has been happening in my life, so much amazingness that sometimes it is hard to breathe. Everywhere I look there are opportunities for my dreams to come true. In some cases so much goodness and yumminess is available that I feel like it is a feast of abundance. Yet, this is also my life. My experiences, my universe and my joy. I realize everyday, more and more, how lucky I am. I have friends that adore me, family that I love (some of them, definitely not all, just sayin), work that fills me up and allows me to grow and expand daily. I look at my life and realize that I have made it. I am where I want to be.
Now, don't get me wrong, there are days I am not pleased, moments I am not ecstatic and people who I end up ejecting from my world. It is just that I don't spend time imagining these days, moments or people into existence. I put my focus and energy on the things I love, that I am grateful for and let everything else go… What you focus on gets bigger, so I focus on love, laughter, joy, happiness, cool people, beautiful animals and myself. I focus, mainly, on myself. This is what most people don't understand. The work that is most important to complete or at least to engage in, is the work of learning and loving ourselves.
When you are able to spend time focused on what you love and loving who you are, even when that part of you isn't going to stick around, you have an easier time overall. When you allow and accept yourself to exist without harsh criticism and judgments life becomes less of a struggle. When you see yourself as doing your best, you do your best. When you approve of yourself it is easier to approve of others. When you let go of there being a right or wrong way for you to be and embrace doing what makes sense for your soul, for your higher purpose, you begin to find compassion for others in a way that others can feel. You begin to radiate energy that brings love to you, safety to others and peace all around.
Are you loving your life right now? It isn't going to change without movement. You will need to figure out if you want the change to be brought about by love or pain. Either you will make things happen because something is hurting you or something is loving you. Love is a way more fun motivator than pain…though we sometimes choose to ignore this fact and wait until shit hits the fan before we do anything differently. You have all you need to make your world whatever you would like it to be… your call, your choice, your life. What's it going to be?
