Hoping you will have a bright, mindful, and self-boosting weekend! Every step, every day, is a meaningful part of this process...the good, the bad, and the ugly. Embrace it all, because I truly believe every part has great value in our success! The planets will align again for you in your everyday life and your everyday goals, personally and professionally!
I am leaving for La Crosse later today for parent's weekend, with Meghan in tow! Should be fun, but a very quick visit!
I found some very reflective quotes from my good buddy, Dr. Wayne Dyer, that have helped me many times in my life. Thought I'd share...
"Each experience in your life was absolutely necessary in order to have gotten you to the next place, and the next, up until this very moment. "
"I appreciate all that I am and all that I have. Stop focusing on what you do not have, and shift your consciousness to an appreciation for all that you ARE, and all that you DO have."
"Treasure your physical being as a vehicle that houses your soul. Once you have the inner way, the outer way will follow"
"You are not an human being having a spiritual experience, you are a spiritual being having a human experience"
"When you are at peace with yourself and love yourself, it is virtually impossible to be self-destructive"
"Don't equate your self-worth with how well you do things in life. You aren't what you DO. If you are what you do, then when you don't...you aren't."
These quotes, among many other tools, are a critical component of my progress in finding that balance. Now, I still have a long way to go, but I am definitely evolving into accepting and embracing the person I really am...being honest, being true to myself, and trying to create a more balanced external life that matches that inner self. Creating a more balanced external life, for me, means giving up my EGO with what I want to accomplish. I have proven that I can do it all, but do I really want to? THAT was one of my critical questions...WHO am I doing it for? I want to just BE...everything else will unfold. Letting my real callings from within, become my everyday life!
Not trying to lecture you here, but honestly, I have used these quotes to help me in the most challenging times in my life, and I really believe I have grown from them and learned a few things about myself. Read the quotes several times over, digest them....and they will shed light on many of your inner most mechanics, and bring you unbelievable realizations. Success, in ALL areas of our lives, really is an INSIDE job. It all begins and ends with how we CHOOSE to handle all that comes our way, how we ACCEPT the things that happen TO us, without letting those things damage our inner self. Peace from within brings peace throughout.
Have a fabulous weekend!
I believe it has taken me YEARS to finally reach this point, and it is a PROCESS which does not, and can not occur overnight...Patience, really opening your heart, mind, and soul, is the ONLY way to find that balance. Finding inner peace, ultimately creating harmony between what is inside you, with the outside world...
