Grow your Soul

I’ve just realized something important to my personal growth, and I thought I would share it with you…

Relationships are always in the back of my mind.  Relationships come into our lives to help us grow as individuals…we must be open to that.  We must understand that sometimes our growth is painful and not perfect…and we must be open to that as well.  We need to understand that the relationship that we need, to help us grow, will be the one that comes into our lives…and we have to try to understand that it may not be a happily ever after.  But the bottom line is that we were not meant to go through this life totally alone.  The only way that we can truly grow and express ourselves, is to share who we are with others.

Now money is also an issue that I think about.  I realize that money is just energy and power…another resource just like time, health, knowledge, talent/skills, love, etc…  I realize that we must respect it as such and we have to be ok with how it flows through our lives.  We need to realize that it all flows better when we are centered in who we are and who we want to be.  In fact, Love, health, money, career… It will all flow in a positive direction in our lives when we fully understand the concept that our soul/god given energy is the magnet that attracts it.  So we must work on loving ourselves, respecting our instincts, and honoring our own unique life path.

With that said, it is important to understand that we are all in charge of creating our own happiness, health, and success.  Your feelings are your responsibility.  Your body is your responsibility.  Your future is your responsibility.  So do the work to honor yourself…listen to to your soul and to what God is trying to tell you.  Your feelings are communications from your soul, so honor them by accepting them and figuring out what message they are trying to send you.  Choose to follow your own dreams, you feel a passion for things because they are meant to be in your life and on your life’s path.  Also, learn to accept help, opportunities, and resources when they come into your life.  Be grateful for the help, and then do your best to grow as a shining light for the next person.  We can only grow and prosper when we share ourselves openly and honestly with zero expectations…You can’t expect anyone else to fulfill your responsibilities when it comes to the growth of your own loving soul.

So go out into the world and share your love and light…and grow your God-given soul.

Happiness is a state of mind

I realize that my state of mind, my mood, my happiness…is all up to me.  I need to make a conscious decision to breathe through the frustrations and find something to be happy about.  Happiness should be our goal in everything that we do.  I understand that sometimes it’s awfully difficult to find that place of peace…and it those moment, I want to invite you to just reach for a little bit of contentment…just the next step up the emotional ladder.  When we realize that life is getting us down, We should all be able to stop and breathe and find that next step higher.

With this in mind…I invite you all to start a daily happiness journal.  At the end of each day, write down at least one thing that made you smile, or created some happiness, or just brought you some contentment…something that you thought was the brightest part of your day.  It can be as simple as getting to work on time, having your dog greet you at the door, or seeing a baby smile.

My theory is that if we start to focus on something good in each day, then the next day will bring us even more things to smile at.  And I’m hoping that before we know it, good feelings will be the norm in the everyday existence of our lives.  Let’s take back our control of our own feelings…

I’m starting 2/12/2016…I hope that you join me.
