I love this! This is so true. There is true freedom in being able to be who you are and in full!
Last night I did a Zoom video training online for some entrepreneurs from all over North America and I really hit home on this!
Be as much ˜”°•.˜”°• YOU •°”˜.•°”˜ as you can be! The more we are being ourselves expressing our beautiful divinity and individual sacredness, the better.
I was saying that I actually made a point of being me on that call last night. I wore no makeup, I had a little hole that I discovered in my yoga top that I was wearing .. and I did not change it. I just went with it 🙂 And you know what? It felt great! GREAT I tell you.
I am learning that the more ME I can BE the easier this thing called Life gets.
So why not let yourself loose today and go all in just being YOU? You who has your own unique smile, way of chewing, nose, wit, passions, desires, JOYS, insecurities, cuteness, nastiness, ups, downs, and all-arounds. 🙂
May your unique dance of life be yours and only yours.
It has come to me lately, that there are 3 kinds of exhaustion we experience. One is physical, one is mental, and the third is emotional, which to me is the most draining of the three. Emotions can also be defined as energy-in-motion.
Sometimes we have all three of these types of exhaustion happening at once and that can be tough. But one of the most powerful ways to help any of these types of fatigue is by receiving emotional support.
I did a training for my fellow Infinite Possibilities Trainers the other day and it was about expanding your reach by building networks and using Facebook to do just that. During the training I shared with the students that building any kind of network is powerful. For example it takes a network to raise a child. We get support in doing this if we are lucky, from fellow family members, organizational leaders, teachers, counselors and more! It is not just us that raises our child. In fact, I came up with a new saying “It takes a family to raise a family”. 🙂
Can you see the power of a network of any kind? In particular when we get emotional support from others regardless of what we are going through in life, it is a HUGE deal and helps a lot. We are energetic beings who have energetic emotional batteries. These batteries can run low and need to be recharged regularly. The fastest way to recharging or quick charging is by getting emotional support.
There are other great ways to recharge like spending time in nature, using creativity to express your emotions and to release them into a manifested state, practicing self-care, eating well, exercising to release energetic burdens and to replenish positive energy stores, but the most powerful of all is when we feel emotionally supported.
And let’s not forget those pets! Pets are the best emotional supporters of all. 🙂
Sometimes in life, we are the supported ones and sometimes we are the supporters. Life is beautiful in this way that we can tag team support for each other on this journey here on earth.
And we must remember that it is always okay and it is in fact a very good thing to reach out and to let others know when you need some emotional support. Sometimes at these times, it is the hardest to do, but that is when we need it the most.
Anyone reading these words, please know that they are infused with both Love and Emotional Support for YOU! 🙂
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time: for that’s the stuff life is made of.
2020 a brand new decade! A brand new play ground for YOU!
I hope 2020 encourages you to get crystal clear on what makes you happy and what you enJOY doing and to do more of that!
Each day includes 24 hours and so much of that is used for sleeping and working and hopefully loving what you do. But what about the rest of the time? Are you filling those moments with the things that really matter to you?
The moments in between the structure are truly golden moments and we must seize the golden opportunities! The beauty in these moments that please us might even be the simple ones to plan like just stopping to enJOY a cup of tea, or taking a 5 to 10 minute delicious nap, or reading to a child, reading a book, trying a new recipe… the list is endless but the point is that we MAKE these precious moments a priority in our lives….. that we recognize that we matter and the moments that matter to us most matter! 🙂
We hear the word self-care used a lot and for good reason. It is a real priority and should be always. The happier and more fulfilled we feel in life, the more we enJOY it the journey, and the more everyone around us benefits. Self-love is an energy that spreads to others and makes them feel better too! It is a beautiful thing. So the more you can do the things that bring you the greatest pleasure or that give you peace of mind, the more you have a cosmic affect on the whole. What you do for yourself you also do for others. With this in mind it might encourage you even more to honor and love yourself. In fact why not love yourself all up? 🙂
So here is an idea: Take a piece of paper out right now or grab your phone and start making a list of the more’s, or the enhancements that you are going to add into your life to increase your JOY factor.
. reading more good books
. listening to more music that makes you happy
. trying new recipes
. more walks
. more laughter
. more quite time
. more organization
. more simplicity
….. etc. etc. As always the list is endless. Get creative, honor yourself and most of all have fun with this!
To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.
I am so trying to be more compassionate with myself. What about you? Are you able to enJOY the version of you right now? Or do you struggle with longing for a former version of yourself or a future version of you?
What if we just stopped this madness and got ok with us right now? I was chatting with my hair dresser the other day and was mentioning that I had gained weight and she had mentioned she had lost some. I shared with her how I was deciding to be okay with the fact that I had gained weight because I know that at the end of my life I will absolutely think that I wish I hadn’t wasted so much of my life worrying or beating myself up. I am sure I would wish I had used those precious moments of life to be happy rather than having negative feelings about myself. She agreed. 🙂
And we all go through these things. We gain, we lose, we change habits, we fall off of our tracks, we get back on, etc. etc. This applies to anything in our life. Healthy habits, positive thinking, working out, being kind to ourselves or not….. the cycle just continues…. We all go up and down in these cycles but really we are always just doing the best we can at the time we are doing it.
What if we just STOPPED? Stopped the madness of judging ourselves and others and turned to JOY and acceptance? What is we turned to Compassion and Kindness for self and others?
WOW, I think it would make a huge difference. Don’t you? 🙂
I wish whoever is reading this, personal peace, self-love, kindness and most of all lots of LOVE!
How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.
Wow. I love this quote! In a nutshell, we just need to be us … being us. I love it!
I discovered this a few years back. Who was I? A life coach? What type? A business coach? A speaker? A writer? A healer? And the list went on. NO I realized and shouted to myself “I am ME being ME“… ME inspiring others through coaching, writing, healing, words, speaking, blogging, etc….. It was a beautiful moment when it clicked. 🙂 I got that it wasn’t about ‘what’ I was being, but about ‘who’ I was being.
Maybe take some time today to reflect on ‘who’ you are and encourage yourself to let you be the full and biggest and best version of you being YOU!
Just like the wind changes direction so can we. We can also learn to take direction…. from our SOUL! The soul knows. 🙂
If the lost traveler really needs only to slow down, pull out a map and take a moment to figure out where he is…. can those of us who’ve lost our direction in life do the same?”
The answer is Yes!
In our lives we all have mountains to climb, rivers to cross, and heavy weights to bear. And sometimes we fall back or slide backwards from where we want to be. And you know what? It’s okay. It’s normal in fact. It’s all good. So take a breath. Like the quote says “the lost traveler really needs only to slow down”….
And “pull out the map”….. Just get out your soul’s map and ask some questions of your higher self. But first relax and let yourself know that it is perfectly OK to be EXACTLY where you are. You are always loved because you are Love and you will return to Love.
As for the questions to help to get us back on our track? Here are a few examples to use after knowing it’s okay and it is just time to ask our soul for directions, just like we would if we were lost in a city. We would ask. Ask. Ask. Ask.
Is where I currently am JOYful to me or painful?
What baby steps can I take to change course?
What is one thing I can do to bring me a bit of JOY and move me away from this pain just for now, in this moment, in this day?
What baby steps can I take tomorrow to move me forward in a new direction?
What is one thing I can add into my life that would bring me closer to where I want to be? Is it a new friend? Is it more income? Is it a new pet? Is it a relationship I need to end? Is it an addiction I need help with? Is it a place I would like to travel to? Ask your Soul. It knows.
There are no limits to the questions you can ask your Soul. Start to learn to trust the answers. It’s simple really. Does the idea of the answer make you feel Good or Bad?Be sure to follow what feels good.
And don’t worry about the How’s of how it would come about, this exercise is about defining what you want and changing your course…..
Hey… why not even have fun with this? Why not? Life is way too serious. 🙂
We are not disturbed by things, but by the view which we take of them”.
When you look in the mirror, what do you say to yourself? Do you say “Hey Hi Me!” or do you, like most of us, criticize what you see? I don’t know why I struggle with this so much. I am all about love and loving oneself and yet I always get caught off guard when I look in a mirror.
Is it a brain thing? Does our brain have a critical eye that looks for changes and variances or maybe it expects to see a certain thing and then does get caught off guard. Just like I do when I remember I am 53 years old. How can that be??? I’m still a little kid! I seriously feel that way in my soul. I admit I am very childlike in my excitement for life and I tend to see the world through childlike eyes …. which I think is awesome btw 🙂
Whatever the reason I just want to get to the place where I look in the mirror and say “Hi Beautiful, how’s it going today? EnJOYing life? Great!”
