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."

Take It Back!

2008 may have been a great year... or a not so great year. It may, at this point, seem like a year of many losses... or a year of many gains. Whatever kind of year it's been for you, ask yourself one question: What do I deserve? Too many people sit back and let life happen to them. What they don't realize is that, in every circumstance, in every experience, you have the power to choose. Your obstacles can always become your opportunities. In fact, that's what they truly are but if you spend all your time in worry, doubt or fear, you're taking your mental energy and using it to keep yourself stuck where you are when you could be focusing on the amazing power you have to get up, to step out, and to get exactly what you want.

Why do people stay stuck? There are so many reasons but the one I want to talk about today is this one: Some people are not willing to do what it takes, to stay in the game for the long haul, to persevere no matter what. Who said your path would be easy? Who said your path would only have roses and happy people in it? No one. So when the first obstacle comes and knocks you off your feet or you hear the first no in your business or you lose the relationship you thought would be there forever, you feel taken for a loop. You fee trapped in a situation that you never thought would be you. You feel lost and, sometimes, you feel helpless. Who's choosing to feel that way?

The bottom line is this: anything you've lost in 2008, anything that's happened that's thrown you for a loop in 2008, you can get back... AND THEN SOME! It's about what you think, what you believe, and what you do. Remember: you'll know how someone thinks, not by what they say but by what they do. You don't have to take people's word for it. You don't have to take your own word for it. Your affirmations are great but what you REALLY believe will come through by what you choose to DO. Make the choice today that 2009 is going to be the year that, whatever you lost, whatever you left, whatever you feel is missing in your life, YOU TAKE IT BACK! YOU CAN DO IT!
