“Everything that happens in your life
is the best possible thing that can happen to you”
– Chris Prentiss
Every single moment we have a choice to make.
Every single moment of our life is given to us.
The question is, what will you do with it?
— If you invited friends to a dinner and they didn’t show their appreciation, would you invite them again? —
Say thank you. Be gracious.
First and foremost, appreciate Yourself. Be grateful for the life you live. Show thanks for the world around you, for your loved ones. Don’t take your money or housing for granted. Especially, be grateful for your feelings and emotions. Be mindful of your inner voice and instincts.
Appreciate your loved ones. Find amazement and joy in the little things, such as a smile, a kind gesture, or a hug. Be aware of the beauty around you.
Appreciate your friends and co-workers. They are in your life for a reason. Be mindful of what your life could be without them.
Appreciate the stranger. Discover the magic behind the “thank you” expressed as you walk past someone in the grocery store. Be amazed by how much impact simple courtesy can have.
Appreciate the Universe. Would you be who you are without all the moments and experiences? By expressing appreciation for what you already have, you open the doors to receive more.
Say and give THANK YOU to your life: moments, events, people, items and whatever else you are grateful for. Avoid the temptation to compare yourself to others.
WHERE TO BEGIN?
** Write every morning and evening what you are grateful for – be honest!
** Ask yourself why you are grateful– be honest!
** Ask yourself what you could do to make someone else happy – act!
** Ask yourself how you could best contribute to create a better tomorrow – act!
** Say thank you to both the stranger and your friends.
By appreciating yourself and others, you will feel lighter and happier. It will provide the encouragement needed for facing any obstacle you may have during the day.
As your day progresses, by expressing appreciation, you will experience more love, more smiles, and kindness.
Self-love is different than self-care. Sure, you can get yourself a nice haircut, manicure or treat yourself to a fancy dinner. These are all external.
Self-love is internal.
Light a candle in a secluded place. Feel the silence. Feel your body. Feel your anxieties. Feel your happiness. Feel your inner voice.
Just be, and just listen. Is it making you feel uncomfortable? This is part of the process. Your inner voice is sending you an important message. Whatever it is, be in that feeling.
Marinate in the feelings. Say them out loud, write them down, and read them again. Cry, smile, or dance if you must.
All emotions have a purpose. They are not bad or good, they each have a purpose.
It is the actions that we chose to take that becomes bad or good. When we attempt to escape or hide, it simply extends our pain.
** Mediate first thing in the morning. Resist the temptation to grab your phone.
** Give yourself time during the day to breath, to “space out”, to day dream.
** Journal your emotions. Try your best to be a “neutral observer” and refrain from being critical and judgmental.
** Stay alert to all the good things around you.
The more you take care of yourself, the more love you are able to spread.
The more you love yourself, the more compassion you will find.
The more you respect yourself, the more kindness will be in your presence.
What you choose to focus on…is it serving or hindering you?
Do you visualize your future as if it’s happening now?
Do you see yourself as a successful, happy, balanced and empowered woman?
The way you see yourself walking, feeling, reacting, living is what you will become.
Do you want to be anxiety-free? – imagine that lightness!
Do you want to be loved? – know that you are loved!
Do you want respect? – act that way!
Do you want to be debt-free? – picture that financial freedom!
Negative intentions will delay progress, positive ones will move you forward.
** Practice affirmations every day by using the words “I am…”
** Believe and trust in yourself
** Honor and nourish potential
** Feel what it will be like to be your genuine, best self
** Appreciate the wonderful person you are now
Manifest and create a vision of where you want to be. You will see it, feel it, and be there! Your soul will feel aligned and peaceful. The universe will send many cues your way. You will become who you so deeply desire to be!
Stay mindful of yourself what you are asking for. 😊
I am HERE. I am NOW. I am ME. ❤
