I Am Enough

Repeat this to yourself everyday, and especially when you really need to. Marisa Peer made this exercise and I am grateful to have it and wanted to share it with you.

Say: “I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough. I am enough.

Say it, believe it.

You are enough.

You are enough. YOU are enough.

You are enough. You ARE enough.

You are enough. You are ENOUGH.

YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.

What I’m Learning

Life is a journey in which nothing is meant to be held onto, except Love and Light. Good and Evil have their respective parts in each of our journeys, but what really matters is what we do, how we handle things, and our perspective.

The way to go is to let life flow. Enjoy what you can while you have it when you have it, and do your best to learn and grow through darker times. Everything is a process, and struggle is a part of the story. The key is to just go with it. 

Do not let yourself get attached to anything and revere everything as the wonderous gift that it is. Fear will come and go, doubt, pain, anger, sadness, hurt will all make their regular appearances. But do not dwell in any of them.

The past is a treacherous place to dwell. Do not hold on to it. Let it go. Learn what you can then move on and be better. Nothing good comes from staying stagnant in one place. 

And an imperative lesson, always be on the learning curve. Always aim to grow from and through everything. It is better and far more helpful to choose Love and Light. It can only ever work out for your good.

Hope, do not despair.

Think for yourself, be creative, use your imagination.

Grow through what you go through. (VERY IMPORTANT)

Take the world as it is and work toward how you want it to be. 

                                       ACT.

Actions matter most in this life. What you choose to do means everything. And there are consequences to everything. Be mindful of what you do and how you do it. 

And especially, learn to master forgiveness. Forgiveness is freedom. Freedom from the past and unnecessary suffering. It excuses nothing but allows you to not be bound by he past and the darkness. But in some cases, darkness is meant to take hold for us to learn and grow. It’s all about perception and discernment. Use them wisely and remember to not get stuck on the dark places. 

The Essentials

“I focus on what is truly essential”, an affirmation I have written within a list on my vision board. At the beginning, middle, and end of every unpromised day that you see, what truly matters? 

Actions and Effort. 

It all comes down to what you did and did you do your best, for yourself and others. That is the main and base focus of life. You’re here to visit for a while and experience life. So next time you start stressing, and better yet, before that even happens, always keep in mind the true essentials of life. Do what you love, pursue your passions, be grateful and thankful, do your best, and never give up, ever. You gotta keep on keepin’ on. This life can be tough and things can get rough but it’s all in how you handle it. Always be on the learning curve and continually grow. 

This Moment

“Do not be concerned about the future; keep your attention on today, and stay in the present moment. Just live one day at a time.-”

                          – Don Miguel Ruiz
This is so important to remember. Now is all that exists, now is all that matters. Stay in this moment, be here. When you mess up, own it, get up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward. When things are good, enjoy it, savor it, appreciate it. Learn, grow, build, experience, enjoy, love, do. This moment is all we have, take hold of it. No matter your situation or circumstances you can live and be as you wish. You simply have to take the reins of your own life and put in the work to be yourself, love yourself, and take care of yourself. You’ve got this. Believe in you.

Words of Wisdom

Learn as you go, build as you grow.

This phrase hit me one day as I was looking through a visionboard of mine (I have 3). It is what I’ve seen, and see, so many people live out. You must be adaptable and always on the learning curve. Life is ever-changing, as we ourselves are, and we must keep up in order to succeed and thrive. It’s also critical that you build, continuously, on the lessons that come your way; and even smarter from those of the people around you. Put yourself in the right position to learn and grow through willingness and determination and make your way to the life you wish to live and the person you wish to be. 

 

Our Fate Is In Our Hands

Want change? Take action.

Get involved. Get in the know with your local government and participate, join in community activities, rally for causes that matter and are special to you. We gave our control away a long, long, long time ago, it’s time to take our control back. And it is imperative that we move now. We have to start working and never stop. The future is dependent upon our actions this very moment.  Be responsible in what and how you consume, in what you do, in how you approach life as a whole. You are a part of this world, so everything you do honestly does matter. Let’s come together and do better.

Changing the Narrative of Communication 

When it comes to communication in the past and in the present, we have fallen and continue to fall utterly short. There are things we do not do or see because we are solely focused on ourselves and stifle ourselves and others through selfishness. So how do we make things better, for everyone? Communication. Communication with ourselves firstly and then those around us. How do we communicate, genuinely and effectively?Acknowledgement. Acceptance. Action.

 Whether the topic of discussion or conversation is uncomfortable to you or not, it is necessary and fair to talk about issues that directly and indirectly affect others; whether we, ourselves, deal with the same issues or not. Our sight must go beyond ourselves, because what affects one surely affects another. We were put on this planet together and therefore are responsible for taking care of each other. We must take care of ourselves and look out for our fellow beings. 

 Help where you can, do what you can, be where you can, be what you can to those who need help. We are all works in progress, constantly learning and re-learning, and continuously growing. We all need the open, safe space to do so and the kindness, compassion, empathy, goodness, will, grit, and confidence to do so and be there for others as they do too. Work with others as you work with yourself. Give others the same treatment you give yourself when you are processing things (lessons and such). 

 Love. It is simple. Be patient, be kind, be understanding. Love all. Love is easy, people not so much. But when you apply love to yourself and then to the others around you, what a symphony of light and greatness it creates. It’s wonderous. Be ever-loving in each and every moment to the best of your ability. Love will never lead you astray. Love is the base, the foundation, the center, the reason, the whole of all of this; the truth of life itself. Let it lead you, let it guide you, let it fill you. Love is the key to communication.

 Acknowledge yourself and others, accept yourself and others as is, and love. Love, love, love. Live and love as thoroughly and as best you can. That’s all. Just do your best at all times and stay focused on love. Always come back to it.
