… who are you vibing with?

Everything is energy. Like attracts like. Nothing and no one ever shows up outside of us that doesn’t match where we are within ourselves.

The energy you are putting out into the world is constantly attracting people and situations who match that vibration. So if you’re feeling happy and positive, you’ll notice that the world outside you seems hopeful and exciting and if you’re feeling sad and negative, the world outside you tends to feel a bit more challenging and bleak.

You are creating that. It’s NOT happening TO YOU. 

You’re never a victim of your life. You’re always in control of it. Your experiences are just a reflection of your inner state of being. Do you want your life to look better? Start cultivating better feeling thoughts about it. You can’t get to a better life by focusing on what’s wrong with this one. But we do it everyday. We complain and whine about the injustices around us and wonder why they only get worse.

Your vibe attracts your tribe. It attracts the people and situations that make up your life. If you’re unhappy with your life, your life will never make you happy. Find a reason to be happy with your life, and it’ll give you every reason to be happy.

… you walk into walls.

It’s common sense.

When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be.

Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we completely miss the significance of our lives. We miss the small moments that are on our path to teach us.

Believe it or not, you are only here to learn, NOT to amass large amounts of material goods, real estate, money or collegiate accreditation. Your focus should always be on your relationships and your challenges — these are your mirrors that force your growth. They make you better, wiser and stronger. They change you. They bring you to a better place. In other words, your struggles are your guidepost to greatness; don’t ignore them.

Pay attention to your life, it’s trying to tell you something. If you don’t keep your head up, you’ll undoubtedly end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Life’s too short to keep your head down; there’s a world in front of you — keep your eye on it, it might just change you.

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made.

Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices.

Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. It never matters what choice you’ve made. All that matters is that you make the choice, accept the ramifications of the choice and most importantly, elect to choose again if the choice you made was unsatisfactory. You can’t change the past, but you’re constantly influencing your future with every choice you make.

Woulda, shoulda, coulda, but you didn’t, so move on. It’s never about making the right choice, it’s only ever about accepting the choice you’ve made and then recognizing that you are always free to choose again. You’re not meant to suffer and die by your choices, you’re meant to continually thrive and live through new ones.

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future. 

If it doesn’t, it keeps you back.

Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it.

If you want to uncover the root of the problem, go to the source, but don’t stay there very long. You may forget why you went there. It’s very easy to get sucked into the pain of the past and by doing so, lose your footing along the path of your future.

Don’t look back, you’re not going that way, but if you need to get closure, look back for only as long as you can get the valuable learning from the experience. Get the lesson and get out — a better future is always waiting for you to apply the wisdom of the past.

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction.

A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it.

Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never in a crisis, you’re only ever at a crossroads. You’re always being given a chance to PIVOT yourself away from what is not working and towards something that will.

Don’t fall into the drama of the crisis. Recognize that it reflects a crossroads for you. You get to evaluate your position and choose your next step. You are never stuck and you are never a victim of your circumstances. If you are unhappy where you are, make a move. Recognize that you’re always in control of your life; your life is NEVER in control of you.

You’re not having a midlife crisis, you just need to make a midcourse correction. Crossroads are always there to give you the opportunity to trade up. Are you ready for something new? The universe is waiting to give it to you.

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you.

And when you are not, nothing works.

When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult.

How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how it feels? If it’s hard, you’re pushing your boat upstream. If it’s easy, you’re flowing with the stream.

Your life path should be obvious and it will flow together easily when you are in the right place at the right time. If something in your life isn’t working, stop pushing, there is a reason why it is not coming together. Resistance is your friend, never your foe.

When you’re where you’re supposed to be in your life, things come together easily. If they aren’t coming together easily, they aren’t meant to, clearly there’s something better waiting to come together.

Don’t try to force something outside your flow. If it’s too hard, it’s not yours. Step away from it. Find your flow first and let it naturally carry you to what is right for you. It can be no other way.

… it makes you BETTER.

When you make a mistake, you learn better who you are and what you need to do differently in order to become more whole.

The mistake isn’t a statement of imperfection, it calls attention to the areas within you that are in a state of growth and expansion.

Mistakes are constructive  — they are the stepping stones along our path of personal growth. They take us higher into an understanding of ourselves and what we need to live our best life.

Mistakes don’t make you broken, they make you better. They change you. They highlight areas of improvement for you. They evolve you. They teach you what you will NEVER do again. They make you wiser and put you on a much better life trajectory.

Don’t feel as if you are broken because you made a mistake. Recognize that the mistake is bringing you to a much better place within yourself.

Don’t get caught up in the mistake — Let go of it — take the learning from it, transform yourself and make your life better because of it. You’ll be glad you did.
