Decision Making

Monday, April 28th, 2014

How do you make decisions?  Quickly?  Slowly?  Considering all options?  Based purely on intuition?  Based on nothing at all?

All day long we are asked to make decisions, from what we wear, to what we eat, to what route we take to wherever we’re going, the mood we choose to be in, what we choose to speak and what we choose to withhold, what we choose to put our time into and how we engage in that time.

Deeper decisions we make are regarding relationships we are in, how we spend our money and our free time,  how we love ourselves and others, what we choose to believe, how we experience faith and fear.

It all starts with awareness…I invite you to become empowered and notice the decisions you are making.  Ask yourself if these decisions are reflecting your truest self.  Are they coming from your head or your heart?  Choose to change any that aren’t giving you the results you desire.  Remembering making no decision IS a decision in itself.

This is your life…DECIDE how you want to live it.

 

In Love

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Being in love is one of the greatest feelings of all time…
It energizes life with expanded breaths, vivid colors, boundless joys, high hopes and unlimited possibilities.

Whether you are in love with a mate, a child, a pet, or a personal passion, to sustain this amazing feeling requires energy and focus.
It requires attention and effort.
It also necessitates acceptance and recognition of the natural ebbs and flows, ups and downs, that are inherent in the cycle of life.

With respect, appreciation, and communication, if you maintain your nurturing and cultivation of this special love, you can keep it growing indefinitely.

Nature vs Nurture

What do you listen to more: your head or your heart?

Over time it often becomes easier to listen to your head rather than your heart, after all, your head is constantly speaking to you and often quite loudly.
The voice of the heart sounds more like whispers and can best be heard when your mind has been quieted through mediation or mindfulness.

Love comes from the heart.
Fear comes from the mind.

A life lived in love is much more pleasurable than a life lived in fear.

I invite you to start tuning out the fear based thoughts of your mind and start tuning into the whispers of loving thoughts from your heart.

Persistence

Monday, April 7th, 2014

If what we resist persists, will what we persist lose its resistance?
I choose to believe YES!

Life’s journey is so much about how we approach it.  If we are the victim, it’s often a struggle to survive.  If we are empowered and courageous, we have the internal strength to see past the illusion of failure and recognize tomorrow is our next opportunity to persist again and go after what we desire.

Hope is a little light of internal strength within each of us that we can fan with our own life’s breath or blow out with our own mind’s thoughts.

What is life, if not the journey of exploration, until our days are done?
Keep going after what you want…Every day spent this way, brings you one step closer…However, it’s not the getting there that matters as much as the experiences along the way.

To win at the game of life, is to persistently play every day for what your heart desires.
