How to find the Positive out of a Bad Day

We all have them right?  Those days that start off without a restful sleep. You toss and turn and your brain WILL NOT SHUT OFF!  You look at the clock and watch the time roll from 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 (OMG will I ever fall asleep).  You finally are able to shut your brain down around 4:30 and the alarm goes off at 6 am.  UGH UGH UGH!!!

From this point on you have set the path for your day, wanting to pull the covers over your head and lose yourself in the sleepy slumber you missed the night before. You begin your day planning for the worst possible outcome. A sluggish day, non production and anxiety; where fear and ego take over and nothing seems to go your way because you have allowed yourself to cultivate the worst picture in your mind. Instead of this picture what would you envision as a perfect day?

So yesterday was one of those days for me.  I have had so many different ideas and projects going in my mind that it was hard for me to shut them off.  I continually analyze and over analyze each scenario. I make notes and more notes and spin and spin and spin.  Anyone else do that?  I went to bed feeling ready for sleep and then I woke up around 12:30 to start the whole process of what if’s, trying desperately to go to sleep.  I turned on my meditation app which usually helps.  I did fall asleep for a 1/2 hour but woke again in the tornado of my mind circling around and around a mix of explanations, advantages, disadvantages.  Well you get the picture; a train wreck! This led to a less than productive day filled with anxiety, depression, fears and just a blah day of self doubt and frustrations.  So I told myself “its ok” chalk this off as a day to just re-group and reflect.  So I stopped all my projects for the day.  I read a book.  I took a walk. I watched some programs on Netflix.  I turned off my brain for the day. I went to bed thanking God for allowing this day, knowing I could reflect on it tomorrow and see what the message truly was for me with a clear mind.

I woke up this morning determined to get myself out of my funk and be productive, to see why I had the day I did as they are all lessons to learn if we open up to receive them.  I went to the gym because exercise helps to clear your mind. There I envisioned what a good day looks like , a balance of organization to achieve my goals.

Once you can see past the issue and understand why your day unfolded as it did, to  receive the resolution, then it all becomes clear. There is a reason for everything that happens in our lives.  There are many different paths to take. If we slow down and breath we can see the possibilities. We can reach the highest good for ourselves, but we have to listen and let go of our ego based fears and adjust because it is life. We have one to live so lets make it GREAT!

So when you find yourself in those sleepless nights that make for a not so productive day know this:  We all have them. Every successful person has good and bad days.  The difference is you can either focus on the bad day or listen and learn from your inner thoughts; to see why or what triggered those thoughts. To do whatever you need to to re-ground yourself, to re-center your mind to trust in yourself, but to also trust in the universe and God; whoever your higher power. They have your back.  You just need to ask, your never alone.  Let yourself off the hook to ask for help to reach your goals.  Choose again, infinite possibilities await you, change your thought.  Wishing you slumber and infinite possibilities.

Love and Light,

On The Fence

20171118_151752

What motivates you? What does success mean to you? Are you still on the fence trying to figure yourself out? Our life flows and ebbs with our surroundings, with society, with all the social media that consumes our day.  STOP!

Get off the fence and stop following everyone else.  BE YOU!  Set your intentions and awaken your own creativity.  God made you in your own unique way for your own purpose. Your own motivation brings you success.  Your success brings you motivation.  Achievement further spurs you on.  Start now by setting achievable goals for yourself to help motivate you into your next goal.  Honor each goal that you have achieved.  Enjoy the process that gets you there, your worth it!  You have the power within you, bring it out and let it shine.  The world needs you!!!

Love and Light,

Hopes and Dreams

What is the one thing you want to do or achieve that a year from now you say “Wow I am so proud of myself for finally starting this goal in my life and achieving it”? We all procrastinate and put things on the back burner waiting for a sign or for someone to come along and magically make it happen for us.  Have you achieved your goals and dreams yet? Or are you still waiting for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  If you take small steps every single day toward your goal; you will eventually achieve it.  If you put a timeline on it and plan your days in order to reach your deadline at a certain time you can attain that.  So today take small steps toward achieving your goals.  WRITE IT DOWN! It can be as small as re-organizing your office space or kitchen.  Just plan, implement and achieve your goal.  Pretty soon all the big stuff will become the small stuff and your life will be so fulfilled with joy.  Make your hopes and dreams a reality; in the process you may help someone else with insight and inspiration and your story may breakthrough an obstacle that has been holding them back.

Love and inspire,

Success

Success does not come from what you do occasionally; it comes from what you do consistently.

I started an online program last week with Marie Forleo called B School. If you are not familiar with her, she has a you tube called  “Marie TV”.  She is an entrepreneur, writer, and philanthropist.  She is a very very successful woman.  Any one of us can aspire to be  her if we have the drive to do so.  The school is about this: becoming a leader in your business, your life, and most importantly, in the world. So I have started my journey through her program and thought this is a good topic to blog about.  Hope this gives you a new perspective and a push on whatever journey you are on in your life.

This is about committing to one goal.  Just one and sticking with it.  About completing a task big or small.  Whether it is less tv or starting a new exercise program or maybe you want to start up a new business.  This is about setting guidelines in your life, whether personal or business and following through with those. So today I took a look at myself and realized that my fear was in my way of executing even one plan. See I am a multi-tasker.  I have so many projects started, so many books I am reading, so so many notes in multiple journals for self help and awareness and becoming more spiritual.  Sound familiar to you? So today is day one of taking action.  Action for my life, for my well being, for my happiness.  I am already utilizing action based learning but was holding myself back from the possibilities.  So today I take action by de-clutting my office, my home, my life; a little bit at a time to bring balance and love back into alignment. Take action today for your life and watch the miracles pour in that you manifest for yourself.

Love and Light,
