How do you handle criticism?
When the sun shines, it doesn’t ask, “How did I do today?” or “Do you appreciate me yet?” No. It simply shines. Doing what it was created to do. Bringing light out of the darkness. Like the sun, when we are doing what we are created to do, then we are living an authentic life that will bring light into the world. As always, live life FUTURE FOCUSED!
What does your authentic life look like? Future Focused
How would you live your life if you knew you were worthy of any and all good things? What in your life would have to change to make you believe you are worthy of being loved and adored, accepted and celebrated, or beautiful and extraordinary?
Today gives us an important opportunity to live fearlessly. Your destiny is anxiously calling your spirit for immediate action. Can you hear the call? Or more importantly, will you answer your calling?
Do you feel worthy of unlimited positivity?
Our words are powerful beyond measure. They have the ability to bring an abundance of love and health. Wake up each morning and speak encouraging words as if anyone at any given moment could see and hear your thoughts. Remind yourself daily why you are the precious light of Divine Love.
What are the kind words you speak into your spirit?
Take a moment to reflect on your deepest and most private thoughts. Are you thinking words of love and encouragement, or hopelessness and frustration? Be mindful of the thoughts that dominate your spirit. Those thoughts will surely become behaviors. Behaviors will become habits. Habits will shape your character. And your character will lead you to your destiny. We have the power to create our realities through thoughts, so make it a great one!
What thoughts are you speaking into your spirit?
We have all heard, “It takes a village to raise a child.” There is a lot of truth in that saying. I was thinking, “what about those of us that grow up to be adults?” Sometimes, everyday life attempts to pull us in many directions. I feel like I need my village just to make it through the day. Even though we bravely try to face them all, sometimes even the most courageous of us grow weary. As a result, I have come to learn the power of friendships. Not only does spending time with them give us the opportunity to have fun and laugh. But it also gives us the ability to restore and heal.
Don’t allow life to disconnect you from your power sources. Our faith, family/friends, and hobbies are important elements that allow us to live life to the fullest. So call up your village and have a block party.
STOP EXISTING. START LIVING!
When is the last time you called your village?
An old man, a boy, and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked beside him. As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding. The man and the boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
Later, they passed some people who remarked, “What a shame! He makes that little boy walk.” They then decided they would both walk. Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So they both rode the donkey.
Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy and man said they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal, and he fell into the river and drowned.
