Possibility

Encouraging Word of the Day

Possibility- a thing that may happen or be the case.

PossibilityWhen you wake up in the morning, the power of possibility surrounds you.  There is no telling what the day may hold. There is an unlimited potential that exists in every day which you can use or squander, depending on your focus, thoughts, and beliefs about life.  This may be the day that all of your wishes come true. This may be the day that accomplishments are achieved, battles long fought are ended, or dreams are realized. If we all focused on what possibilities today holds, no one would ever sleep in.  Put the concept of possibility securely in your consciousness today in all of your thoughts, words, and actions.

Who Are You?

who are youThere can be no more daunting question to answer than to ask yourself who am I ? Then to answer it honestly.  Many people automatically list their job and their family situation, but those are outside influences on who you really are, not who you are.  Just in case you need to know who you are, I think you can start by recognizing who you are not. What are the factors that make you a totally unique individual living on this Earth?

Our Limiting Beliefs

Using-Positive-Affirmations-p2Beliefs are the ideas which we have chosen to provide a particular attachment to. These are thoughts that we have been told during the course of our lives that have been backed up by experience and our emotional reaction to them.

Don’t be afraid to stand out

One of the most difficult things to be in life is different.  But it is in our differences that our true strength lies.  We live in a society that bombards us with messages of conformity. In what we wear, what we eat, what we buy in all things, the message we get is to fit in, be a part of the system, don’t stand out! Although there is a safety in following along, there is a joy that being different brings. Never be afraid to be different from everyone else, that is where your gold is hidden. Be conscious today of your unique thoughts, and actions in thought, word, and action.  Look at the messages you are inundated with telling you to conform to the group.

We were all like that at one point, and to return to that kind of mentality could only be a positive for more experienced people.

Imperfect

 

look beyondI heard this phrase today, “the courage to be imperfect” and for some reason, it stuck with me.

How much time in life do we spend worrying about being perfect in all we do?  How often do we succeed and what would it mean if we were perfect?  All of these thoughts had me feeling like my head was spinning off. So I thought I had better write about it quick!

How much time in life do we spend worrying about being perfect in all we do?

Flow

Word of the Day

Flow~ move along or out steadily and continuously in a current or stream.

Life is full of little words like flow. It is something that when you have it, life goes along easily and when you lack it, things can be a struggle.  It is a factor that most people don’t spend time consciously thinking about. We benefit when we are in the flow of life and struggle when we are moving against it. The great thing is that whether we are in the flow or not is all a matter of choice in what we decide to place our focus and energy.  Getting into the flow is ia simple as paying attention to the moment at hand and experiencing that part of life.  Being conscious of the flow in your life will give your guidance along the path of life.

Just as any other living creature, our purpose in life is to contribute and to continually move toward becoming our best selves. Just as plants are born and start to grow throughout their lives.

As you look at your life and each activity that you are participating in asking yourself if there is a chance for growth in doing this.  We are all consciously, physically and mentally going one of two ways. 1. We are getting better or becoming more or growing  2. We are getting worse, becoming less or shrinking.

I have as well clung to these traits to separate myself from the crowd, to show my unique value. Yet I look at society today and see that I am participating in a world that is manipulating all of us into a prison of individuality.  This is a prison that keeps us separate from learning about ourselves and  our own thoughts. It makes me wonder what I am missing. We are all connected, all we have to do is look for it.
