Food for Thought: On Being Busy

Saying I am “Busy,” can signal the need to avoid something unpleasant.

Many people use “busy” as their catch all buzz word to hide their preference to not respond or discuss something that might make them feel uncomfortable. I know I have used it myself on more than one occasion. It is the perfect excuse to get out of anything we don’t want to do.

But using that “busy” excuse gives rise to beg these questions: Continue reading

Food for Thought: A Narrow Path

maudslay footbridge

We are all walking a fine line sometimes on a narrow path, with bridges to cross and hills to climb. Our struggle is to meet that path with anticipation that it will lead us in the right direction.

But, wait… What if that path leads us astray?

What if we read the signs wrong and we traveled down the road, and found ourselves lost?

There are no sureties in life. There is only moving forward on the narrow path and trusting it will lead us in the right direction.

Daily Affirmations: I Am Awesome

Today, I will practice the “I Am Awesome” principle. Each time I am asked how I am, I will reply, “I Am Awesome!” With each reply, I will feel the contagion of being Awesome grow with in my heart and mind for intent makes manifest. With each opportunity I have to respond to the question, “How are you,” I have the opportunity to share the “I Am Awesome” principle, so that others may feel the contagion as well. Awesome is a state of mind, it is a choice, like happiness.

When I choose to be Awesome, I choose to be more than happy, I choose to be empowered by my own will. When I choose to be awesome, I choose to see things through wonder, amazement and I choose to make self-confidence a guiding essence of my life, because I understand the power of intent. The question begs the answer, “Why would I choose to be anything less than Awesome, each and every day?” That I choose to be Awesome, makes it so. And so it is… Intent makes manifest.

Daily Affirmations: I Am Strong and Centered

Today, I re-mind myself that I am strong and centered, and I am confident in who I am in the world. I affirm to myself this and every day, that nothing can shake my confidence unless I give it the space in my heart and mind to do so. I reinforce within myself that I will not take what others say personally, for hurtful words directed towards me, are not about me. I use my intent this and every day, to hold myself in the light, staying strong and centered like the trees in the forest, despite the world around me. And so it is…

Food For Thought: Life is a Series of Roads

Today, I am re-minded that Life is a series of roads. Just when you feel that you have traveled a road far enough, a new and more interesting road appears on the horizon. In this ever changing series of roads that we travel upon in life there are no road maps, it is up to each of us to make choices as to which direction we will head in. The road to least participation takes us no where. If we don’t show up in our own lives living fully and responsibly, we stay stuck destined to take the same road over and over again until we learn it simply is okay to ask for directions when we are unsure of way ahead. The easy way out is far to often the most complicated of all directions in which to head. Pay attention to the signs, and listen to the clues. You know the way is in your heart. To be empowered… Listen.
