The True Path Of Life — May 23, 2020

The True Path Of Life

following- your -true- path

The path of life is clear, but not until it’s been traveled. In the immortality of youth, we are blinded by the light of our dreams, cocksure of ourselves, driven by unquestioning hope. Only when the light fades, when our youth has deserted and our hope has gone, do we turn and look back. Only then do we truly see our way.

Growing In Character, Gratitude, And Abundance! — May 22, 2020

Growing In Character, Gratitude, And Abundance!

This past week I finished up the Chopra Center, 21 Day Meditation for Gratitude, Growth and Abundance challenge. There were so many lessons along the journey, some were some emotional as day 19 reminded us that no matter what we’re going through in life, it’s only momentarily because “this too shall pass.” I am so grateful to my friend Trix for inviting me to join her group, which allowed me to create my own group on Facebook which I hope will be just as beneficial to those who have joined as it was to me.

Another was about building strength and gratitude. A reminder that we grow in challenging times as our boundaries are tested and it’s these times that we grow not only character but also in gratitude as learn to celebrate all the abundance in our lives. It was great being a part of the group because even though it may seem like you are alone in your struggle, life has a way of showing you that you are not the only one who is going through challenges.  You can find validation and strength from knowing that there are others out there who have weathered the same storms you have.

The Secret To Being Mentally Strong — May 16, 2020

The Secret To Being Mentally Strong

Everyone has the ability to build mental strength, but most people don’t know how. We spend a lot of time talking about physical strength and physical health, but much less time on mental strength and mental health.

We can choose to perform exercises that will help us learn to regulate our thoughts, manage our emotions, and behave productively despite our circumstances – the 3 basic factors of mental strength. No matter what your goals are, building mental strength is the key to reaching your greatest potential. ~ Amy Morin

 

There Is No Lack Or Limitations — May 10, 2020

There Is No Lack Or Limitations

There-is-more-than-enough

There is a lie that acts like a virus within the mind of humanity. And that lie is, ‘There’s not enough good to go around. There’s lack and there’s limitation and there’s just not enough.’

The truth is that there’s more than enough good to go around. There is more than enough creative ideas. There is more than enough power. There is more than enough love. There’s more than enough joy. All of this begins to come through a mind that is aware of its own infinite nature.

There is enough for everyone. If you believe it, if you can see it, if you act from it, it will show up for you. That’s the truth.”

The Greatest Blessings of Mankind — May 3, 2020

The Greatest Blessings of Mankind

Greatest-Blessings-Of-Mankind

“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”
~ Seneca

Inspiring Your Soul — May 2, 2020

Inspiring Your Soul

inspiring-the-soul

When overtaken with calamity or, tribulation, come forth undaunted and undismayed. Inspire the soul to reach for the high realms of victory and joy, and hold fast to that lofty position even though the whole world seems to disappear beneath your feet. With such a victory for your strong inspiration, your own soul will prove more than sufficient for all that life may demand of you. Then remember that mankind stands ready to welcome and exalt every soul whose strength is greater than any circumstance, whose joy is greater than any tribulation, and whose faith is greater than all doubts and failures in the world.

Why Your Problems Are Designed Specifically For You! — April 11, 2020

“It’s easy to complain about your life – how tough it is, how unfair it is, how stressful it is, how everyone else has it much better. But if you step into the life of someone you envy for just a day, you’ll discover that everyone has their own problems, and they’re usually worse than yours. Because your problems are designed specifically for you, with the specific purpose of helping you grow.”

Some Very Important Reminders! — April 4, 2020

Some Very Important Reminders!

flower-2944602__480

I remind myself if happiness is fleeting, then so is sadness.
I remind myself depression is the weather, and I’m a weather-worn tree.
I remind myself even the worst storms pass.
I remind myself I’ve survived them all.
