Things that are important to you in your life will always take work. As Doug and the Slug say
“Making it work-Takes a little Longer”
“Making it work-Takes a little Time!”
They are correct, and this applies as much to work as it does to relationships! If you want something to “Work” in your life, you have got to be willing to put in the effort. As one of my coaches, Devlyn Steele (www.toolstolife.com) says, things always take longer, and are harder, than you originally anticipate. Stay focused on your goal, make it work no matter what, and do not get discouraged when it doesn’t go the way you planned. The path to your success may not always “look” the way you originally thought…keep on keeping on and you’ll get there no matter what! Have faith, work hard, stay positive, and SING your way through life. “Makin’ it work…” is in your control. Namaste.
There will be times in your life when you are desperate for answers, or desperate for something to change, or happen. First, you need to write down what it is you need or want. Then, ask the Universe out loud for what you need. Lastly, take action to get what you need and want, but try not to force it. Everything will come, but it will take time.
The Beatles sum up this important point in one of their songs…
“There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be”
If you have asked for it, and put things into place to get it, just let it be. Take a breath, relax and feel good that it is all on its way. Let the feelings of frustration and impatience go, and embrace a confident, calm, secure feeling. Trust the Universe. It’s got you covered. Namaste.
This morning, our three daughters were up early and Ryan and I were desperate for a half hour more of sleep. So, I asked my oldest daughter to help us by getting breakfast for herself and her younger sisters. A blissful half an hour later, we walked into the kitchen to find cereal all over the floor, and our kids dining on a crazy oatmeal concoction laced with chocolate chips, honey and marshmallows out of soggy paper muffin cups. The kids were happy, and high on sugar. The kitchen was a disaster. Ryan and I eventually felt like it was a fair payment for the extra sleep.
Remember that nothing is FREE in this life, and in order to get, you must be willing to give. This is the great exchange. Realizing the inevitability of this exchange can change your perspective on everything that happens in your life. So, what are you willing to do, or give up, to get what you want? It is always your choice, and in your control. Have a fantastic week!
Use your positive thinking power! A band that I grew up singing with, the Beach Boys, inspired me this morning. “I’m picking up good vibrations…good, good, good, good vibrations!”
You are receptive everyday to the stimuli all around you. Remember that you have full control over which stimuli you allow into your space. You have got to tune out the negative, and only allow in the positive. Filter out the bad, and let in only good. You have the power to do this. Namaste.
Positivity can be found in every situation that you encounter. Take a moment everyday to assess your experiences, and realize that enjoying your life comes down to how you perceive your experiences. When life gets hard, focus on the positive things that you are getting out of each experience. And whistling or singing a song once in a while can really turn your day around.
Today, I’m singing a little ditty by Monty Python…
Some things in life are bad, they can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse
When you’re chewing on life’s gristle, don’t grumble give a whistle
This will help things turn out for the best
Always look on the bright side of life
Always look on the right side of life
Enjoy your day! Namaste.
Some songs just seem to give you what you need when you need it.
Electric Light Orchestra was singing right to me the other day…
Hold on tight to your dream
When you see your ship go sailing
When you feel your heart is breaking
Hold tight to your dream
And now I cannot get it out of my head. It is important to create a dream in your head. Visualize that dream and then never, ever let go of it. Things may not always go the way that you thought they would, but you will still end up with the results you want…if you can “hold on tight to your dream!”
See where you want to go and then have a little faith in the process. It matters not how you get there, only that you end up getting there. So enjoy the adventure, and the unknowns, that life gives you. The unknown will only be an unknown for a little longer. Clever advice from my mom, Janet Legere.
Dream big and then never let that dream fade or be taken from you. You are in control, even when you tell yourself you’re not.
It’s TGIWWW (Wicked Women’s Wednesday) tomorrow…and I am looking forward to my standing Wednesday lunch with my mom and my sister. We are coming into our fourth year of choosing to spend Wednesday afternoons together! And even after all these years, the time always goes too quickly on Wednesdays.
Thanks for choosing to read my inspirations. You ROCK!
On Sunday, our oldest 2 daughters had music recitals for piano and violin. In the morning, when I reminded Kayley (who is almost 6) about her piano recital, she said “Yeah! I’ve been waiting for this day my whole life!”
Ah, perspective. No matter how old you are, you need to set goals. And you need to get excited about achieving those goals. Always strive to reach your goals, no matter what those goals are. Remember, your goals are personal. Stay excited about your life, and your dreams. And when you reach your goals, reward yourself and then set bigger ones. Conquer the world one small goal at a time. Namaste.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
Make your body a priority by feeding it healthy food and lots of water. Give yourself 7-9 hours of sleep a day. Add some activity to your life. Having a healthy body that is strong and rested will ensure that you feel calm, relaxed and happy. Boost your confidence by maintaining a healthy body. Namaste.
“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
I believe in you. Namaste.
“Everyone needs a certain amount of money. Beyond that, we pursue money because we know how to obtain it. We don’t necessarily know how to obtain happiness.”
