This is for my girls…I love you both with all my heart and all that I am!
You will always get what you ask for…
So choose your words (even the ones in your head) wisely because the parts of you that control your brain, your muscles and all of your thoughts, are listening. And they don’t care why you say what you do, they just listen and do everything in they’re power (which is great) to make your words come true.
You will attract whatever you give your energy to.
So say Yes to all the scary awesome stuff, bust your butt and figure that crap out later. If an opportunity presents itself, know that you have brought it on my placing your energy there. You may not fully understand or feel prepared but trust the process, you have been doing the work “before” the work all along. You’ve got this!!
Be intentional, even when it seems chaotic. Recognize how your thoughts and actions align with your vision. Variety and multi-dimensional thinking is not a loss of focus, it can lead to direct focus.
More points of light shining on one spot will make it brighter,
clearer and more easily found.
Your authentic self is who you are when you get out of your own way. Don’t fall into the trap of calling procrastination “research”, remember to unplug. Dream BIG! Do and want more. Recognize that although the present is BIG, dreaming BIGGER means that you know being happy does not mean stopping. The act of dreaming shows that you recognize the natural evolution of all things, including self.
We are not necessarily looking for some thing when we dream and plan new endeavors,
…we are looking for a feeling, one that we know exists and we want more of.
Once we decide or determine which activities bring us the most positive feelings, we seek out opportunities to repeat those activities. The key for me was to tap into only healthy activities that bring about sustained positive feelings. It is always worthwhile to look at your aspirations, your vision board, your goal book wherever you allow your inner selves to settle in the outside world and try to identify what feelings you are looking to feel. Let those feelings guide your decisions.
Your soul, your heart, your unconscious mind will always have your back and only wants the best for you!
Allow your self to be true to your feelings and seek out, and squeeze out, every ounce life has to offer. I believe that the desire for these feelings are the reasons for why I do what I do:
- Stillness, the calm needed to recharge and reflect.
- Roll on the Floor Laughter, for all of the medicine it provides.
- Love, Deep, Everlasting, fill you to the top Love!
- Energy to do EVERY thing you have ever dreamed of.
- Control and the knowledge of when you need to let it go.
- Empowered to do or not do, you decide.
- Helpful kind and thoughtful – knowing when and when not to “do” anything.
- Relaxed and at peace especially when you are very busy.
- Confident and quiet while exuding your strength and power.
- Happiness that is so infectious you are known for it.
- Awe of all beauty in all things.
I hope that you create your own lists of amazing and positive feelings and that you make them as loooonngg as possible. I want you to know that you both have brought out the best in me and that every day, because of you, I am graced with these feelings. The reality is that I am not perfect and inside this shell is a living human who cares deeply about bringing love, laughter and learning to the world and I want each and every day of your lives to be overflowing from within. I strive to be the mom that you deserve, a mom who models and does not tell. Lets be:
- Physically active
- Problem solvers
The take away here is that I know you are excellent mimics, not interpreters, so if I want anything to be true for you, it must be TRUE for me. The life I live, the feelings I feel, the preconceived ideas that I have, the way I express myself, how I interpret the world is what you will see and who you will become. The most amazing thing I can do for both of you is to be and live my most authentic, joy laden, courageous life, in hopes that you will then create positive self images as well. The foundation which you build yourselves upon must be wide and deep as you scaffold your lives with your experiences. My hope is that what we have built together will sustain your stumbles, falls, small cracks and missed steps. I love you both and I believe that the most influential and positive way to express that to you is to deeply love and respect myself.
