Today I want to share with you my annual State of the Heart Address.
Last year, I made a vow to myself that no matter what happened, I would make a choice to wrap myself up in a Love Bubble. My Love Bubble has been a tremendous eye opener. It has opened my eyes to blessings that I wasn’t able to see before. My Love Bubble has literally changed my life, world, and spirit.
So this Valentine’s Day is unlike any other. I have a greater appreciation for myself and everything in my life. During the darker moments of my life last year, the only thing that changed was my thinking. Through my thoughts, I thought myself a beautiful existence. Through my thoughts, I thought myself bigger than any circumstance. Through my thoughts, I thought myself as love and the desire to be a blessing to others. Lastly, through my thoughts, I thought myself blessed beyond measure! And today, I am all of these things, through my thoughts!
What is your State of the Heart report?
The very moment we take control of our lives and destiny, we set into motion waves of positive energy that have interesting ripple effects. In our genuine quest to become better, the universe will most assuredly give us necessary opportunities to challenge our thinking. And if your’re like me, even though I have learned to welcome those challenges, I don’t always like the way they make me feel.
Years ago, a wonderfully wise and beautiful friend taught me the “Power of Cool.” The Power of Cool is a phrase I coined to mean remaining cool and calm in negative or uncertain circumstances. I recently have employed The Power of Cool method and realized two wonderful effects it produced.
First, my unhealthy circumstances forced me to remember why taking control of my life, in this moment, is necessary. It taught me that my dreams, hopes, and desires are worth any challenge. Each day has given me new respect for myself, increased my self-worth, and given me a stronger desire to accomplish my goals.
Second, the people around me are given beautiful opportunities for change. When I do not react they way others expect, then at that moment they must adapt. When I remain cool and unemotional, my positive energy sends a powerful message that I am in control and have a wonderful and well deserved advantage.
No matter what circumstance you find yourself in, remember “The Power of Cool” and why it is important to your destiny.
“Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain cool and unruffled under all circumstances.” Thomas Jefferson
How do you control your circumstances?
This year will be the year that my dreams come true. I know this for a fact because I am taking the necessary actions to make it happen. I have come to a place in my life where I no longer want to just think about a better life. Now, I have given myself the love and freedom to DO IT!
My comfort zones have been abandoned, my head is filled with positive thoughts, and my heart is protected with faith. So now as I rise on the good foot, I stand knowing that success is mine and I can’t wait to share it.
How will you make your dreams come true?
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t,
either way you are right.” Henry Ford
