Sometimes all we need is some #USTIME with our journals, a pencil, and a cozy place to settle into.
That is what I did this morning, and boy did it #FEEL good!
Todays #topic? Allowing LIFE to FLOW through us.
Simply by tuning into our bodies, we will know what feels good to us and what doesn’t. Usually when we allow life to flow as it should, without resisting it or forcing it, we #FEEL good. The feelings in our bodies are great indicators for how we are living. Happily or stressful?
Whatever feels #good to your body, do that!
Side #note: Give yourself the time to express what is on your heart. You will thank yourself for this small, yet precious #gift!
Realizing that we are separate from our thoughts, gives us the freedom in choosing which thoughts to believe, if any at all.
It is in the stillness, where our thoughts seem to fade, that we see the beauty and magnificence of life.
Our thoughts are but a distraction, a veil, if you will, shadowing us from our own light.
As Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor says, peace is just a thought away.
Or is it a thought?
Maybe it is a feeling.
Peace is just a feeling away, hidden behind a wall of thought.
Let us ponder that today.
Sending you LOTS of LOVE,
Sarah & THELOVE4HAPPINESS
There are no short cuts in life.
The path we walk down is full of ups and downs, sharp turns, and signs that we may or may not pay attention to. But this is our life.
Every bump in the road has enabled us to go deeper, deeper within ourselves.
We may have to travel down the same path more than once, if only to leave with a new set of eyes.
Through it all, we must remain true to ourselves.
The truth will always set us free.
Be true, stay you.
Today is a NEW day, so let’s act like it!
I know it is tempting to dwell on past experiences that made us feel crummy. I also know that once we begin a thought pattern of a particular experience that caused us to suffer, the mental downward spiral begins and when it begins, it feels like there is no end in sight. I know this because I have done this to myself, not intentionally of course, but countless and countless times. But there is a different way to live. I know because I have started to live this way. I have come to realize that I have a choice. I get to choose what I focus on. I know at times it seems like we are constantly losing the battle between our egos and our hearts. The ego seems to be louder and more bossy, where our hearts seem to be soft and subtle, making it more challenging for us to listen to it. However, I am here to tell you that there is a way to make our hearts appear louder and our egos softer. A way which will help us become happier people.
For every new day, picture a great big BLANK canvas and you as the painter decide what goes on that canvas and what doesn’t. There may be past experiences and feelings that creep into your mind and crave to be the center of attention, but ultimately you have the final say for what remains on the canvas. Do you want to experience the same old “shit” from yesterday, two weeks ago, or 6 months ago? Or do you want to start fresh and begin again? Well, great news, YOU have the freedom to decide. Some of the old baggage will mangle its way through and reappear on your canvas, but don’t worry, that is OKAY. Our focus should not be on the old baggage, but on the NEW, EXCITING, and SMALL events that appear on our canvas. Once we begin to pay more attention to the events and experiences that bring us joy, we create room for further joy-filled experiences. By shifting our attention, from negative to the positive, we slowly, but surely, make life-long changes that will pave the way for a happier existence.
Where is your FOCUS?
