• Acknowledge the reality.
I learned several years ago we cannot change or heal what we do not acknowledge. If there is something in our present situation that is uncomfortable or painful, it must be acknowledged before the changing process can begin. The pink elephant in the room will continue to sit there; occupying valuable real estate until the day it is recognized and then asked to leave.
• An unfulfilling marriage, frustrating career or undesirable state of health will continue to fester and ooze disappointment until the pain becomes too great to bear. The day we acknowledge our marriage lacks the passion we crave, or our job is not aligned with our life’s passion or we don’t recognize ourselves in the mirror because of the additional pounds, is the day we will begin to change our reality.
• Believe in the truth, ignore the lie.
The lie tells us we are not enough and we are not entitled to have God’s love. The truth, on the other hand, is we do have God’s love and mercy without any conditions or terms tied to it. We are free to receive His grace because it’s a gift he created especially for us.
• Somewhere in the grey.
With every difficulty or set back that is impeding on our happiness, the real issue doesn’t exist merely in the black; nor does the only answer appear in the white. Rather, our lives are meant to be lived somewhere in between; somewhere in the grey – and in the grey is where we can find many of the answers to our problems as well as some of the keys to our happiness.
• Respect life, our guest.
There are some days when mothers don’t return home and fathers leave without giving us the chance to say good-bye. And there are some days when doctors deliver horrible news to an anxious family. And every day the sun sets on a soul who witnessed its rise only hours earlier.
o Life, our guest, needs to be treated with respect and honor. Life, our guest, comes and goes as it pleases. We can make all the preparation we want, but Life follows its own schedule.
• Take one step more.
It’s usually the extra push at the end that makes all the difference in getting what we what or settling for what we think we deserve. It is doing the one extra thing that no else is doing, or is unwilling to do, that creates the separation necessary to get to where we want to go.
o At the end of the day, a sense of peace, happiness and worthiness fills our spirit and nourishes our souls with warmth that covers us from head to toe when we have taken the one step more.
o “I have done it,” we think. “And no matter what happens next, no one can take this feeling from me right now. I took one step more; one step more after feeling discouraged; one step more after hope seemed lost and I did it. I did it.”
• Measure in love.
Paychecks, weight scales, and the accessories on our cars or on ourselves can be measurements used to determine value. The more important unit of measure, however, is love.
o Measure the number of times you asked for love and it was given. Measure the incredible feeling of having your partner sleep beside you every night. Measure the worth of the unconditional love our parents can provide, and even though they may gone, their love still remains.
o Measure day and months with a calendar, but measure your life in love.
• Begin today, right now.
There is no better time to live your heart’s passion than right now. When the nudge you feel is beginning to pull you in the direction of your life’s purpose and your inner wisdom is telling you to go; then go.
o Resist the temptation to feel regret for not beginning earlier. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. So, live in the present; in the here and now and begin today, right now.
• Ask for what you want.
When you make the decision to ask for what you want and then focus on this request, you are telling the world how much you want to achieve it in your life. Thoughts do become things.
o When we push down our dreams they can get lost with the other things that seldom see the light of day. Bring your dreams back to the surface, say the words, and believe in your worth to receive whatever you request.
o Soon, you will begin to see changes, perhaps small at first, but changes that will lead to you getting more of what you ask for and more of what you want; and more of what you deserve.
