What's On My Mind...

Saturday, March 21, 2010
The last few weeks have been intriguing. I've realized, in myself, patterns I thought were long broken. I see things now that have been fear-based that, for a time, I thought were logic grounded... and I'm ready and willing to change. I opened up Marianne Williamson's "Enchanted Love" to a random page and a prayer popped up. I'm going to hold onto this prayer for the next week or so. It fits in perfectly with the next CHOOSE YOU course I'll be teaching:

"Dear God, I don't wish to be a child anymore. I don't wish to be held back anymore. I don't wish to waste my life. Deliver me to new realms, repair me where I am broken, and ready my heart for everything. Thank you, God. Amen."

Turn It Around

Are you waiting for a lucky "break"? The economy to get better? People to change? What are you waiting for? One of the greatest gifts of life comes in the fact that each of us has the power to change our own lives, each of us can live a joyous existence even if nothing in our current condition changes? "How is that possible?" you ask. The answer is one word: choose.

You choose how you wake up, how you go to work, how you see the world. Everyday, you wake up and make a choice as to whether you live in a friendly world where people, places and things line up to help you or a hostile world where people, places and things are always working against you. You choose.

Now most of us create unconsciously. We walk around pissed off, mad at the world, mad at our spouses, resentful, regretful, remorseful and then we wonder why life is "hard." It's hard because we see it as hard. It's tough because we create situations and circumstances that give us reason to be right. Aren't you tired of being right? Wouldn't you rather be happy?

It's time for you to stop waiting and to start being the best of who you are RIGHT NOW in this moment. You don't have any other moment to do it. Money won't fix this. Counseling won't change this. Other people acting different won't make it any better. You are the lock, the key, the door and the doorknob. You are it already and it's when you decide that this is a friendly, cooperative world where you prosper and feel joy, it's at that exact moment that your life will change and, yes, you will be able to CHOOSE YOU!

Do it now...
