Monday’s Perspective

Today, you may wake up and feel uninspired to make today count.
However, what if you changed-up your perspective a little? Rather than dreading your day to come, what if you accepted the feeling which is causing you to suffer?
Imagine yourself opening the door to this feeling.
Sit with it for a second, without trying to ‘fix’ it. 
Now, after welcoming this feeling, try to envision it flowing out of you. 
At this time, choose to focus your attention on the things that bring you happiness, in this moment.
It could be as little as a morning kiss from your dog.
Make a pact with yourself, that today, you will try your best to focus on all that is good in your life.
It can be tricky, but once we begin to practice this way of life, we allow other things, which also bring us happiness, into our lives.
As Martha Beck says,
“Where your attention goes, your life goes.” 
And to be honest, when you stop and look around, this life is PRETTY AMAZING. 


What Would PEACE Do?

What would PEACE do?

I have been asking myself this question for the past week. I ask it when I feel my ego trying to push me out of the way and take over the spotlight.

A few days ago, while on the phone with my sister, a certain topic came up, which my ego assumes it knows EVERYTHING about. I felt my ego (the control freak in me), craving so desperately to interrupt her and hand out my two sense, only to be “RIGHT”. When I felt this urge, I took a few deep breathes, brought myself back to the present moment, and asked myself, “What would PEACE do?” I found that when I anchored myself back to the present moment, by taking a few deep breathes and then asking myself this question, my ego disappeared. And the answer which came to me was this: LISTEN. Be PRESENT.


By fully listening to my sister, without allowing my ego to judge every word coming from her mouth, I was able to connect with her in a much more fulfilling and peaceful manner. Once we realize that we DO NOT have to participate in our ego’s self-destructive games, we no longer feel inhibited by our ego. We stop taking ourselves and our lives so seriously. It doesn’t have to be as hard as we make it out to be. By asking ourselves this question before our ego takes flight, we enable our true-selves to shine through. In the end we create more meaningful and heart-felt relationships, with ourselves and with others. The first step, is noticing when it is our egos in play or our authentic selves. Simply, be aware.

Note: This takes continuous practice. There are many times when my ego moves in ever so subtly and takes control. However, by practicing over and over again, the ego slowly loses its grip. If we want to create happier and healthier relationships with others and with ourselves, we must be willing to change.

Happy Valentine’s Day from THELOVE4HAPPINESS


This is one of my favorite love quotes!

With where I am at in my life, it almost speaks directly to my heart.  

I love the relationship that I have with myself.

To be honest, I have most fun when I am doing the things that I love with myself.

Not to say that adding another person into the equation takes the fun out of it, because it doesn’t.
What I am saying, is that because I am happy (not everyday all day, but overall) with the relationship between myself and I, I am very picky with who I choose to allow in my love circle.  

With that being said, if I happen to come upon another person who loves the ME I love, I would have trouble letting that person out of my love circle.


I think the most important relationship is with ourselves.

How can we create a healthy and happy relationship with someone else if we haven’t taken the time to create one with ourselves?

The relationship with ourselves is more or less the ground work for how the relationships with others will play out in our lives.

Treat yourself to something special today.  Celebrate the love that connects each and every one of us together.

Spread love and cheer wherever you go today.  You may be surprised by what you receive back!

ENJOY, everyone.
