images… you’re in the RIGHT place.

But we never like uncertainty. We feel as if we need to know the answers to everything in advance. When you’re faced with many questions and uncertainties, it means that you are in a phase of personal growth where you are learning about yourself and the world around you is subsequently changing to fit your needs.  In other words, you are in a period of transformation. Transformation never comes about with great ease, it comes about through questioning and trial and error.

If you are not questioning the world around you, then you are not growing and evolving. Questioning your world pushes you to open up to new directions and new opportunities that you might not have otherwise discovered. Contentedness breeds mediocrity. Uncertainty breeds discovery.  

It’s time to ask more questions and discover more of the world around you. We all seek to find a world where we can feel comfortable and make a difference. If you do not question your role daily, how can you grow to expand yourself and find where you need to be? Life is a process and asking questions is the ignition key to success. Stop thinking you have all the answers. No one has all the answers. If we did, there would be no reason to be here. Start questioning your life, it can only bring you to a much better place.

Releasing Your Grip

images-3… allows things to BREATHE.

Trying to hyper-control situations strangle-holds them.

We hold so tightly to what it is we think is right for us. In fact, we continually push our agendas forward even in the face of adversity. But to what end? Where do we stop and realize that resistance is a form of protection. If you are finding it hard to continue on in a given direction, it might be because you are not meant to. Resistance is a universal sign to back-off.  There is something there that you might not be seeing.

We are conditioned to think that if we work hard enough and push hard enough that we can alter any situation to our advantage, but that is using force to drive your life. A better way of living your life is to STOP pushing when you hit a wall and step back. Give yourself some space and time to breathe and allow what is meant to make its way to you, to get to you. Your future might need a bit of course-correction.

Your life is divine. There is an order to it. There is fate and destiny already in place. You can always use your free will to alter any and all of it, but note that you will absolutely encounter resistance if you are pushing towards the wrong conclusion. Take that as a sign to stop exhausting yourself. Take that step back so you can see more clearly. That step back will free up the energy to allow what is really meant for you to catch up with you. Time and space is the ultimate neutralizer.

You want to learn to breathe your way through your life. Controlling doesn’t secure your future, allowing does. When you are ready to release your grip on what you thought you wanted/needed, you will be able to make room for something even more beautiful. Clarity comes from releasing your grip, letting go of control and learning to trust in the process of your life to bring you to exactly where you need to be. Where else would you want to go?

Drawing the Line

images… makes sure it never gets crossed.

Relationships are about boundaries. When relating to others it is critical that you are extremely clear about your boundaries and what behavior you will accept and what behavior you will NOT accept.

Often times we get upset with others’ behavior. We feel slighted by their words or their actions. Unfortunately it is too easy to turn a blind eye and hope the other person is having an off-day. Either that or we react the opposite way and we unconsciously explode into a fit of victimizing anger. Neither action yields the desired result.

Communication upfront is the only way to ensure that your needs will be met. Don’t expect others to know what “good and fair” behavior is for you. Don’t give them the opportunity to decide that. It is your work to decide what you will and will not accept from others.

Once you are clear with your boundaries, you will be met with much BETTER outcomes. When people are clear with their boundaries, other people respect them more. They respect them for respecting themselves. In other words, you get much better behavior when you establish the expectation upfront.

There will always be people who push your boundaries and try to cross the line.  If you haven’t set up the line beforehand, it will always make it harder to distinguish later. Also if you haven’t designated the line at all, how can others know when they have crossed it? Be clear with your boundaries. Learn to speak up for yourself. Learn to defend your integrity and let no one cross that line.

You get what you accept. If you do not want to accept it, do not allow it. You cannot control other’s behavior, but you can control what you will and will not accept from them. Avoidance does not solve the issue nor does arguing. Communicating yourself upfront - kindly, constructively and compassionately will go so far to supporting the type of interactions you will receive in your life. Love yourself. Respect yourself and draw the line. If the line is there, others will most certainly think twice about crossing it.

long and winding road2… is a much more enriching journey.

We never want to take it though. Why is that? If given the chance, we will more often than not choose the motorway and bypass all the beautiful exits along the way to our destination. For some reason we are obsessed with where we need to go in life and we forget that it’s not actually about the destination at all, but about the journey to get there. 

The pressure we put on ourselves to achieve our goals and “be someone specific” or “be somewhere specific within a certain timeframe” doesn’t allow us to enjoy the process of life that is happening in this very moment. There is no reason to jump the motorway and completely miss your life. Your life is happening right now amidst all the twists and hairpin turns. It’s that long and winding road with all its bumps and unforseen curves that helps mold us into the beings we are today. If we bypassed that road and took the motorway, we would miss out on all the beautiful scenery and experiences we might have had. We would just be another cookie-cutter person living a boring existence because we preferred to skip ahead and “save time” to get to our destination.

Your life is rich with your experiences and those long and winding roads make you who you are today. Every bend and straightaway colors you and gives you your unique character. Long and winding roads are meant to be savored, not rushed through. You want to enjoy the journey of your life because it is in essence a journey into learning about the self.

Any time you are ready to learn about yourself, take that detour and allow life’s experiences to open the RIGHT doors for you.  There are no quick answers in life, just because you know how to get ahead faster on the motorway doesn’t guarantee that you are going in the right direction. Take time to enjoy your life, take the long and winding road and experience the journey into yourself. You might find that there is no need to get all the way to the end. You might choose to stay somewhere along the way. If you slow down, you will have the opportunity to feel what is right for you and not have it artificially decided for you. Life is always about the journey NEVER the destination, so let your journey unfold.

your-life-gets-better-by-change3… it gets better by change.

Life changes. Nothing stays the same. Nothing is ever MEANT to stay the same. As humans, we are meant to grow and evolve and that doesn’t happen by staying still. Movement initiates change. But sometimes the idea of change seems overwhelming, so we don’t allow it. We would rather accept the dysfunction that is familiar to us then to offer ourselves up for the unfamiliar. Hence we get in the way of ourselves and our growth.

Do you want your life to change? Learn to get out of the way of yourself. Stop trying to control the outcome. Life is meant to change naturally. If it is not changing for you, you might be holding onto something/someone/some thought that is keeping you back from moving forward.

Do you want freedom? Do you want change? Do you want to feel as if you are living the best life you can? Get out of the way of yourself. Allow life to change for you. Don’t hold onto things and people that you think are the answers. They may not be.

As soon as you learn to let go and let life be, you will take more chances, undertake more risks, and initiate newer courses of action that are unfamiliar to you. This movement is what brings about change. Change never comes about through complacency and waiting. No more waiting for your life to change, invite change in, step up to the plate and let go of old habits and thought patterns that are clearly not serving you. If things have not changed in awhile, it is time to do something new and it is that movement that will usher in change. Time to change, what are you waiting for?

Life Has No Remote

life_has_no_remote_tn-541948… you have to change the channel yourself.

Nothing good ever comes easily in life. Nothing. If you want greatness, you have to work at it. In our society we have become lazy at navigating our lives.

We prefer to sit back and press FAST FORWARD through the uncomfortable bits to get to our goals.

We prefer to hit REWIND and sit stuck in past relationships and situations that have long outlived their purpose in our lives.

But what we do not do enough of is to hit PLAY and live in the moment and realize that as we are trying to fast forward our lives, we are missing the spaces in between that could change us. And when we are looking back at the REWIND, we are not allowing ourselves to grow and evolve forward in the moment.

Living life in PLAY mode makes people uncomfortable because they cannot control the outcome. Life’s outcomes are NEVER meant to be controlled. They are meant to be lived through and experienced deeply. You can only live your best life in PLAY mode.

Life has no remote. If you allow it to play out, you will be brought to the most optimal conclusion for your highest good. If you try and use the remote, you may just allow your free will to take you on a ride.

Time to throw out the remote. Be in the moment and allow your best life to play out. Your transformation will happen while life is playing out before your very eyes. Are you ready to play?

change-the-world-1… start by changing yourself.

It all starts with YOU. As  Ghandi said, “BE the change you want to see in the world.”

We never realize our power. We never realize just how much influence we personally have in the world. We never think we can make a difference by ourselves. We are very wrong.

Every act of kindness – every smile – every compliment we give changes our molecular structure. It shifts our energy and helps us to create more light in the world. Not only do you feel better, but the planet responds in kind.

When we focus on spreading love and kindness, our planet heals. When we focus on spewing venom towards each other, competing with each other and building our personal wealth to the detriment of being kind to the person hurting next to us, we’ve lost the lesson. Selfishness breeds pain and misery on a personal & global level.  

Natural disasters are Mother Earth’s response to hate, anger, mis-used power, greed, materialism and waste. Do you want to change the world? Start by changing yourself. Put more positive energy out into the universe in small ways everyday. Smile at a stranger – compliment your colleague – offer to help someone in need – small random acts of kindness will go a long way to helping you live the best life you can.

Circumstances do not change outside of you until you undergo a change on the inside. Embrace positive energy and share it with others. You might just find that the things you are looking for in life find their way miraculously to your door.

Be the change you want to see in the world. And the world will change around you. What are you waiting for?
