Well the first step is a choice. A choice is put in front of you and depending on your decision you either move forward or stay stuck.
That choice can also make or break you. This can be a choice to break the tradition, beliefs or routine. It is going to shake your whole life up. A safe choice is not a choice as this will keep you stuck but you will feel a sense of security. As some would say to themselves. But, making a bold choice can be daughting and end up being the best decision of your life.
This can change the whole game for you. It can switch a few things in life and sometimes, we are not ready for some of it. Unfortunatly, life does not wait on us and if you have not notice time does not as well. Every day we get older and hopefully wiser based on our choices.
We learn and grow from a choice and at times it is that bold choice. That helps us mold the way forward. Decisions are never a cup of tea for me and I never envy anyone who has to make them. But I do know when someone is torn between two choices they really have to think deeply on what lies ahead. Holding back from the choice they know can help them can be unhealthy as progress may never happen within their life.
From my experience especially recently I have found the better choice is always the bolder choice but the feelings of making the choice can be tough. There can be consequences that I may have to face and of course we know the famous disappointment we have to embrace.
But in the end a choice is still left to make and most of the times. It is better to go with the choice that scares you because that is the one that will help grow, expand and embrace the fullness of life. After all isnt that what we are on earth for …… to live.
So, why are so many of us not doing this including myself,holding back.
Recently, I have become a little obsessed with decluttering. I have began decluttering a lot and for some reason I have not really stopped. What I have realized this is going to be a ongoing journey , I plan to take 20 to 30 minutes a day decluttering a lot. So far it has been great a challenge by getting stuff out. The emotional attachment to things is unhealthy. I never realize how attached I am to simple things like a old pair of jeans, or sun glasses I have not wore in a year.
Which has helped me reach this phase, simplifying. I really want to simplify a lot in my life. It is so tiring dealing with a lot of things and just having less is a lot less of a headache. Do not get me wrong I love and appreciate everything I have but what I realize is the more I have the more stuff I get cluttered and the more responsibility.
More clothes leads to more things not being used or having to consider getting more space for more clothes. More make up means more time applying make up and more items on the whole leads to more and more. What I have started doing is not following trends on clothes, or just having one of a item not two mascaras, three different sets of make up sets or two or three eye liners.
This has helped me in tremendous ways, I have been feeling a lot lighter and old weight is shedding off. My decluttering journey has now began and I have seen tremendous changes already. I can think clearer and be able to have a little more space.
It is a task I plan to challenge myself with every day to see how much I can actually set aside and evaluate my usage of items.
Will keep you posted on this adventure, so look out for more.
I recently found this video and was totally amazed. The wisdom and charisma is one I would say that is quite enlightening.
From this video I have learned a few points I would like to share that can be used as daily motivation. These wise words from many and used by a motivational speaker to enlighten so many can be reflected upon daily.
1 – In the end, we only regret the chances we did not take. This is so powerful and yet very true. If we live in our comfort zone all the time we may never know what this world has to offer.
2 – Take Risks – If you win, you will be happy. If you lose, you will be wise.
3 – Don’t die wondering. – This follows in line with number two. If we do not take calculated risks we may go through our whole lives wondering what if.
4 – It is not important how long you live, it is important how you live.
5 – A pessimistic sees the difficulty in every situation. While the optimistic sees the opportunity in every difficulty. – This is a beautiful way of thinking, as the way we see things affects us.
6 – Wheather you think you can or think you can’t you are right. – Henry Ford – Whatever is the outcome of your thoughts you are right as your thought controls your reality in life.
7 – As you think, so you become. – This is the truth as your thought controls your reality and your mind holds the power that brings forth your truth after some time. You manifest what you think in your subconscious and conscious mind. You are what you think quoted by Buddha.
8 – If you don’t control your mind someone else will – John Allston. I have been told a few times, which I have seen come true, to control your emotions and mind before it controls you. This is a true yet strong statement. Everything starts with one thought.
9 – Poor thinking habits, keeps most people poor. If we think poorly of ourselves we would stay stuck in financial strain. If we judge ourselves harshly we will never grow. If we allow other people opinions hold a spot in our mind we would stay with social expectations. Poor mindsets leave us with a poor life.
Every day we are all trying to survive and make another day. Each day we are trying to push ourselves above and beyond to get to where we want in this life.
Many of us are just trying to survive and we forget that we are here to thrive. Our lives are here to be lived to our fullest might and there are times we would struggle with a little fright. But I believe with every moment that passes by we have a choice to either survive or make a step to thrive.
Every bird that we see is living on the same planet as we do today. Why can’t we learn to be a little free like the birds in the tree? I know for many it is because we have so many life demands and stopping to admire a plant can cause much harm to our plans. Funnily we make so many plans and forget to take in the beauty that surrounds our lives and only realize this when we can’t make any more plans.
Remember while we have a choice each day to shine or survive take a moment to stop and admire something that catches your eye. This will be used as a beautiful moment when we have to surrender to everything.
Don’t always hassle to work and blow away the driver that gave you that bad drive. That could be the moment to embrace and appreciate that you have life today because while you are swearing to yourself that you are late again or annoyed with all the traffic there is someone begging for that one single moment again.
We must survive to have another day but at times we tend to forget that we are never certain about that next day.
What you think, you can manifest towards your life. Thoughts and words go hand in hand and can bring forth your reality. They say what you say and believe is what brings forth in your day to day life. That is why you have to be so careful what you say inwardly and outwardly.
Young children thinking can be affected from a very young age. Which can have an effect on their lives with the way they see things from a young age.
There is so much violence happening around the globe and children and teenagers are involved, and many are asking themselves why. Well, the answer lies in what we let our little ones view and take in from young. What is being put in their subconscious mind from an early age?
I can tell you a lot of cartoons and movies have a lot of violence and graphical images, that are being put in a young one mind from the age of 3. Many are giving there kids video games and having them unsupervised with their internet and tv time. Some children are even more tech-savvy than their own parents which are even scarier.
Whatever they are being shown on their devices they are putting into their subconscious minds. That, unfortunately, leaves an effect on them for a lifetime.
When positive alignment is placed around someone, to view or put in their minds. They will transform their thinking to positive thoughts only and bring forth positive thinking, words, and actions. Our subconscious mind is where our deepest thoughts lie and some thoughts go way back. This leads to our conscious mind and it eventually brings forth in our day to day lives.
There is a quote from Jesus Christ which states ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.
Our thoughts go the same way with our actions, when we think of our lives and envision our future we must think positive. This is because we are asking the Universe for assistance, seek with all your mind and heart. When you are seeking for an outcome you are searching for results and when you bring positive alignment to it, you already envision a healthy outcome.
Knock and the door will be opened, always keep your thoughts on the positive side of a request or situation. This is because you have asked the Universe for assistance and it will help you, once you believe with all your heart and mind.
Your mind is a powerful tool and you need to find ways to keep it on a positive aspect. Every day find 5 positive affirmations and say it daily, this can help when negativity creeps in and it always does. You will see the difference in situations when it doesn’t go your way.
Always choose different thoughts and your actions will fall in line.
There is another saying that I have heard once or twice before by many motivational speakers. Fake it until you make it. This switches your brain to have you thinking, you have already reached your goal. The Universe will fall in align and help you align your thoughts to your belief with time.
Expect a positive outcome and it will come. Expect luck and it will come. What we determine, is what comes forth in our lives.
Take 5 minutes a day to visualize your success, breath deeply when you are doing this meditation. Close your eyes and focus on the goal being acquired. This will help when you become stressed or when negativity begins to creep inside.
Try to remember positive moments when you acquired your goal. This will help with getting the feel, taste and smell you had at the time. Use this feeling when envisioning your future goals and see how it affects your thoughts when under high pressure.
When you envision the success, it will be brought forth in your day to day life. Tell the Universe exactly what you want and leave it all in the higher force hands to deal with, you have already started your process or done your part. When you let go and not continually dwelling on it, you are putting out that you are expecting this to come forth in your favor.
Happiness is a state of mind, so always be happy. Happiness is no means to an end of problems. It is something that you mindfully let happen to you.
Winners are always happy even when their world can be tumbling down. Nothing in life is permanent and we can always change circumstances but it always begins with your thoughts, towards everything.
Never let outside influences affect you, and how you see yourself. You can control circumstances and make them into opportunities and the Universe will bless you.
Failure is never a failure, it’s another chance and a new beginning of another book or chapter.
Most importantly, always practice living in the present. You can envision the future, but you must always make happiness a habit.
Planning is an unnatural process; it is much more fun to do something. The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. –John Harvey-Jones
Surprise, surprise, surprise. This is what life is saying to me now. The feeling of things getting out of control and out of reach is overwhelming. Positive mind, positive mind, I keep saying this to myself to center my mind so it can stop thinking even for just a while.
Bong then Bang, one after the next, life keeps throwing all these curve balls at me and quite out of control with them. How am I suppose to manager all this load by myself?
Here take this, maybe you can do with a little excitement. I don’t think you have enough stress to keep you occupied. This is how I feel when life just won’t give me a break with everything because for a second everything was actually fine.
It’s winter time in most lands, where you are is too sunny let me help you with that one. Life decides to have my heart feeling ice cold as I honestly don’t know which way to turn. Here let me help you maybe you can bleed a bit by ensuring you can feel everyone pain and put yourself aside for a bit. Yes my caring nature is so wonderfully adored by all.
Take some more pain and lets top it all with a little retrogates. Yes, let me remember a time I had one of the hardest moments, by abruptly bringing up something. That seems all so familiar right.
Don’t worry I am not done yet because I know you are strong so just wait I have a lot more in store just for you.
Doesn’t it all sound so familiar, well to me it is. Life can be a roller coaster and it can seriously feel like its not on your side at times. At the end of the day,life happens and it suppose to, it only shows we are alive.
The Universe spins off from life, so when surprise, surprise events happens, let us stop and think for a while. Let us take a step back and ask ourselves what can we do now to fix this problem. If its not fixable move on.
The hardest lesson in life to learn is to keep a positive mind in all situation. It is not impossible, but it is possible to keep a calm steady mind threw it all.
When it all feels like it is tumbling down. Let us stop, breath, reflect and take a step back to center ourselves, then tackle our problems.
Vulnerable moments that swipe around, like a thief in the night can be quite undone. That leaves scares deep but yet very unnoticeable to many. How can moments like these be missed by so many? Well, I for one can say, these moments are when everyone is busy with their lives and when things happen expects a fighter to be by there side. Many never realize that at times the warrior may not be able to be by there side all the time.
That’s the moment that defines a lot with time. When the kind soul is expected to give so much of themselves that moment they stop to reflect and when they do not reach out at a time. Tables tend to turn and leave many broken after so much time. Love hurts, and to love many can hurt even more, especially with a kind heart. This world can tear apart anyone but it is always the strong ones who make it look so easy when they are dying inside that feels the brunt.
Not every day a strong one is going to feel ready to face a Monday, or ready to be there for everyone. There may even be some days where a kind heart may feel they need to really step away and really leave some traits behind. In those moments kind, hearts should not feel guilty for taking some time. It only means you are human as well for some time. How can someone give all there love to everyone and not take a moment to love or acknowledge themselves even once? This has to be the biggest sacrifice I may never conquer in my life, and I for one do not want to fully understand.
Being a fighter is all nice but let us be honest with ourselves sometimes. We are humans and have vunerable moments those are the times that can really make us or break us apart. Set boundaries with your kind nature and do not let anyone take your little heart for granted all the time.
Love is lovely and much love without boundaries. Fight the good fight but know when you have to step aside because the Universe can be sending a strong sign. Many are running around life not taking time to really appreciate life and that’s the moment we lose the meaning of life.
It is ok not to be selfless in your acts because you feel totally defeated today by life. It is ok to say no sometimes because you know your heart needs a little recharge for life. It is ok to call in sick one day in life because honestly you just need to recharge.
Life is meant to be lived and we are meant to live to our fullest aim. Live, love and learn with each passing moment but do not feel bad when you the fighter just need to say not today.
We all ask this question at some point in our lives. We may even question it more than we should at times.
Who am I in this world? Who am I on a whole? It may be puzzling for some but we all learn who we are with time.
We cannot explain it to everyone and we cannot sum it up to a lot around us but we should be learning about ourselves each and every day. Every new experience helps us grow and learn more about who we are becoming in this life.
There are always challenges and everyone experience is always different and there are always a few experiences in life that can shake many of us to our core. But if there is one thing for sure we all have a deep root within us that we always remember. It is a part of us that grows, learn and develop with time.
We get older every day and things transform in our lives but with time we see reasons why things happen and many of us understand the logic behinds things. It may take time and as life unfolds situations can happen that we just cannot explain to everyone even those who may have known us all our lives. But we get stronger, wiser and smarter because of life experiences. Our emotions have experienced it all and we know what it can do with us in our lifetime.
Always appreciate where you are at in life, and embrace life. Never forget where you come from but do not stay in the comfort zone. Look back at times and always remind yourself how far you have come.
So when you ask yourself. Who am I you would know you are everything that life has to offer. You are love, peace, joy, success, and happiness. You have learned from every experience and grown to become the person you are now. You are you and you are still growing and evolving to become your higher self and you want to see others reach their highest conscious self as well. When we are all aware of this we would realize we are all basically the same in this life. Trying to figure out what this life has to offer us next.
This can be one of the most horrific feelings anyone can face. The agony,the shame,the disgrace and the pain. It can all come rushing down and hit you bang in the face.
Many of us suffer with this day by day and have no idea how to face any of this by the day. It can be eating away at our skin and our pain can be so deep it cuts like a knife. Many would say I live with so many expectations, that at times I forgot how it feels to actually fail. So, when this hits you in the front page your heart can’t take it anymore.
My eyes, oh my eyes, the pain I feel from crying out my eyes. I know so many feel this pain because we live in a world in so much pain. That we forgot when we actually end up in pain we can’t even manage to lift up our heads to see the vail.
Time and time again, we would fail but we have to find a way to mold it away. I wish I had a pill that says, it will pass away but I know it will be a lie after some time. Living with pain is a hell of a thing, that when it actually goes away we forget, that actually one day we have to deal with all of this again.
So I would say when it comes to facing failures and pain we have to find a way to deal with all of it. When we do figure it out, remember to lift your head and move on. All the sweet words of time heals everything , and everything happens for a reason is all nicely said to all. But we all know when something tragic happens, it is hard to fall asleep at night.
All the prayers and quotes can give us a push to move forward but in the end it is up to us to really want to move forward. Many talk about all the success many got but they always seem to forget to mention the amount of failures they had to endure to get where they are to this day. So don’t get too tied up with most success stories and always remember to ask how they got to that point.
Take back up your life and wipe away those tears because no one actually cares what you are doing with your time. Most just want something to talk about and many want one just one to take that jump.
Do what you want and if you fail many times. Just know that at least you tried. This life is full of many disguises and one of them is making everyone feel like they have to wear a disguise for all.
This is your life to live and failure and pain is all of part of it but know when you have made it. You have really made it and most of the times it is because of failure and pain and you understand the true meaning of life.
Never give up on your dreams. We all have dreams we want to achieve and we must make time everyday to work on those dreams. Excuses won’t get you to where you want to be with all the resources we have and the beauty of technology.
We are all truly blessed to be living in this era. This is the time where we can network with each other and be living million miles away. We shouldn’t have excuses to not push to get when we want in this lifetime.
When you make a decision to change your life for the better stick to it. Do not let the pressure of life or opinions of others force yourself to second guess yourself. Each of us knows our worth and we all know what we have to do to reach those goals.
It won’t be an easy road, it never is an easy road. If anyone ever said it will be a bed of roses they lied. But one thing is for sure, it is worth the fight. Just think of the win and you will know why you are doing all of this life.
Do not give up or give in. Your time to shine is just round the block.
