Have you noticed that sweeping things under the rug doesn’t work? That dust always comes back and it is relentless.
Aversion is usually the first reaction when something not-so-warm-and-fuzzy appears in our life. When we’re faced with situations beyond our control, why is it our natural tendency to look the other way?
You Become What You Think. Your Thoughts Create Your World.
Sometimes it can be hard to realize the truth in this powerful statement, especially if life feels crappy and things seem to be spinning out of control, but we do have a CHOICE in every moment. We can’t control what’s “out there,” but we can control our minds. When we really “get it,” that’s when we can go within and seek wisdom. This is true refuge and protection. When we are able to process our circumstances in this way, we are better able to view our world through a different lens. (more…)
I know, you have a billion things on your To Do list, but you don’t know where to start. You’ve heard the “first things first” mantra, and Brian Tracy reminds us to Eat That Frog! but what the heck is first when everything is a priority?
Not too long ago, I conducted and took part in a daily mindfulness challenge. Each day, I encouraged you (and myself) to reflect on topics such as: patience, finding contentment even during turbulent times, being OK when things don’t go your way, learning to let go and more. Now you have the ability to easily continue using these reflections each day, or jump in for the first time. Each meditation is listed below along with reflection cards that you can easily print or view from any digital device. You can start from Day 1, or choose the reflection that resonates with you on a particular day.
Own your dreams. There is no better way to make them happen.
I recently stumbled upon a thought-provoking post from best-selling author and entrepreneur, Seth Godin.

Once we set the wheels in motion, our chances go up for accomplishing them, but so does the possibility of being let down.
