I’m too far from the ledge and unable to see the bottom. Strangely enough, I’m enjoying the scenery around me. Already, I’m seeing precious clues that explain what led me to the ledge. This gives me much-needed encouragement. Some days I feel hopeful. Other days, I question my sanity. But letting go and embracing the new isn’t always easy. This past week, I was tempted with an easy way out of my situation. Goodness, I wanted so badly to just accept the offer. However, I made a promise to myself that I would keep the promises that I make to myself. I am excellent at keeping promises to other people. But lately, I have been struggling keeping promises to myself. We’ve all been there. It starts out with small things that eventually leads to bigger unkept agreements. It’s a delicate dance trying to balance this thing called life. I work hard to make all my dreams come true, but I need to slow down enough to enjoy each precious moment. So right now, free fallin’ is just my speed. And at the right moment, I believe God will pull the parachute cord to give me a safe landing.
Are you committed to making your dreams come true?
Envision having an unlimited open invitation to the happiest place on earth. Imagine very few obstacles that would keep you from your magic kingdom. Here is the secret: The happiest place on earth must first begin in your heart.
Try to visualize, that no matter where you go throughout your day, your steps are ordered in happiness and love. How is this possible you ask? I teach people that no matter what season of life you may find yourself, you are in that place for a divine reason. Just like there is value in the valley, we also need to remember that there must be gratitude in the good times.
Until we learn to accept ourselves as a whole, we will remain powerless victims to random moments of happiness.
If you are struggling getting to your happy place, then step outside of yourself and do something nice for another person. Be a blessing to others will be your golden ticket to the happiest place on earth.
What are some ways you are willing to extend kindness to others?
Talking with a good friend the other day, I was blown away at how far my life has come. I felt so inspired that I wrote down all of the things I have been through within the past 15 years and compared it to where I am now.
For me, writing things down and seeing my life on paper, helped me to see things clearer. It also gave me a deeper appreciation for myself. I realized, that even in my lowest moments, I was brave enough to dream and pursuit a better life.
Today, I feel more encouraged than ever. I learned that I am a loving, compassionate, resilient, and a determined woman. So with each day, I vow to myself, that I will not stop living life to the fullest until I have squeezed out every bit of goodness this life has to offer.
How will you inspire yourself today?
Sometimes it gets really difficult to see the good within ourselves. Lord knows I have been there more times than I care to count. When life changing circumstances, negative influences, or personal insecurities begin to speak loudest in your heart, make the effort to change the conversation.
In a perfect world, fear or insecurities would have no place in our lives. However, what makes us brave is when we make a conscious decision to fight through our battles despite what our feelings or circumstances tell us.
Begin to tell yourself those things that make you a valuable person, ask your family/friends what they most appreciate about you, and do something kind for another person. I guarantee your heart will begin to heal and you will be placed on a path that leads to your awesome destiny.
