Every Person, All the Events in Your Life…

…are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you.

This is a marvelous quote from one of my favorite books, Illusions by Richard Bach.  If you’ve never read it, I recommend it. In his brilliant and inspirational way, Richard teaches us to look at life from another perspective.

Another one of my favorite books (non-fiction) is A Course In Miracles.  Lesson 33 states “There is another way of looking at the world.” Lesson 34 reminds us “I could see peace instead of this.”

What we see, what we experience, and what we think are results of the choices we make. We are only a victim of our own thoughts.

So choose to be the superhero of your life. Choose happiness. Choose love. Get up on the opposite side of the bed, walk in a different direction.

Get a new perspective.

Live for the Beauty of Your Own Reality

Don’t live your life according to someone else’s reality. Their goals, expectations, and judgments are not the same as yours. Don’t make decisions based on misinformed perceptions.

What did you want to be when you grew up? I’m not talking about career, I’m talking about life in general. What did you think your future would look like?

What do you see happening for yourself five or ten years from now? Is this the path you chose for yourself? Or one someone else chose for you?

Their reality is not the same as yours. Remember that. Define YOUR reality, and live in the beauty and truth of that. Then, and only then, will you find true happiness, joy, and success.

It’s never too late to have a Happily Ever After.

 

Beauty Begins the Moment You Decide to be Yourself

Beauty doesn’t come from physical attributes. It doesn’t depend on your figure, your hair, your face, or any of those things.

I know it’s cliche to say “beauty is within”, but it really is. So stop for just a moment and think about that. If beauty is within, what does that mean? And how can you project what’s inside of you, so that people can see your true beauty?

The answer is LOVE. Love of self. Unconditional love. The love that we were created with, shining through in a brilliant light and force of energy.

Love.

Love is beauty. Shine today!

All Is Well

A lot of times I think about things I want to do, and I place a condition on them. I’ll do X when Y happens. And then I realize, Y may or may not happen, and I can do X now. Whatever X is.

Don’t set limitations on your life. If you are given inspiration to do something, then just do it.

So many people say, “the time isn’t right. I have to wait until my bills are paid off, or I have a better job, or the kids are in school, or out of school.” But the truth is, you can do whatever it is right now. The only one putting conditions on your actions is you.

Every time I do that, then stop and realize I don’t need to wait for one thing to happen before I can do another, I set out to do what my initial idea was. And you know what? When you do it, everything else falls into place.

We don’t have to have all our ducks in a row to accomplish a goal, or to take the next step in a relationship, to start a family, to apply for a new job, or move to a new home. There are no conditions in life. We have Free Will. And we need to remember that.

So whatever it is you’ve been thinking about doing, but were putting off ‘for the right time‘, just go do it!

You’ll be amazed at how wonderful life is when you live it.

Make a Mark and Start Your Story

Every story begins somewhere. I have a sign in my home office that says, “Home is where your story begins”.

But stories don’t necessarily start at home. Some start the minute you walk out the door, or board a plane, or put the car in gear. Some stories start when you open a door or answer the phone, or say “hi” to a stranger.

And not only that, but our lives are not just one story, but many, many stories. There’s the story of my childhood, the story of life and Grandma Johnson’s house. There’s stories of school and friends. I have stories from an old apartment house that isn’t even there anymore. But the story is still there. That’s the great thing about stories-they live forever.

Apartment 6 kitchen and dining room

What story are you in right now? Or what story will you start tomorrow? Is your story about success, career, love, loss, or hope? I’ll bet you have a story that touches on each of these. We all do.

Life is just a compilation of our stories.

Anything Is Possible

Anything is possible.

It’s a fun statement full of hope and magic. Although some people would rather live by what’s probable than what’s possible. Part of this comes from fear of change. Reaching for the ‘possible’ can mean reaching outside of your comfort zone. It can mean taking a risk, testing your faith, capabilities, or knowledge. It is often much easier to live in a world of what we know and are comfortable with.

That darn comfort zone! It’s our worst enemy.

Is there something you want but felt it was out of your reach? Maybe you don’t feel qualified for a particular job or task? Or like some unfortunate souls, feel you’re not worthy? Who establishes your worth? Who establishes your qualifications? Who says you do or don’t need that enough to warrant your having it?

You do!

Your life isn’t up to anyone else, it’s up to you. If you’ve given the control of your life away to someone else, then it is fully in your power and right to take that control back. It’s your life, not theirs. What is possible in your mind, that you haven’t tackled, tried, or reached for yet?

It’s time. Take the first step today to do the possible.
