Life is a Journey of Self-Discovery

                                  "You are the Hero of your own story"-Joseph Campbell

Our lives are filled with numerous opportunities to discovery more about ouselves and explore possibilities to reach our potential. Self-exploration somehow leads us back Home to our true self as we experience ourselves in new ways on our life's journey. We are truly the authors of our lives, and it is our responsibility to create our new LOVE STORY. Let go of the past and use every moment to begin again. Focus your energy on building a good life:
                                                                                    
                                                             -Release past regrets and forgive
                                                             -Create a positive atmosphere around you
                                                             -Try something new and be open to new things
                                                             -Smile everyday
                                                             -Find avenues to connect with positive people

                                                  GETTING ALONG WITH OTHERS
                                             GOOD TEMPER: An Ingredient in the Recipe of LOVE

How can we be more pleasant to be around?  How can be live in harmony? How can we be more loving?
A Loving Spirit is like a sweet fragrance that lingers. We love to be around people who are loving and their essence is forever entrenched in our memory for years to come.  Good Temper is an ingredient in the 'Recipe of Love'. When we are in Good Temper we are not easily provoked, quick tempered, easily ruffled or disagreeable. Good temper is not being a doormat or non-assertive, but standing up for ourselves in a gentle and loving way.

Think about a person that exudes Good Temper. What is admirable about him or her? How do they make you feel when you are around them? How has he or she made difference in the lives of others?
I think about Mahatma Gandhi who changed himself first, demonstrated strength through peace, pursued truth, and literally conquered his enemies with Love. I was inspired by his good temper even in the midst of the most challenging situations.

BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN OURSELVES AND OTHERS

                                             "We lift ourselves by lifting others -Robert Ingersoll

Reflect on a time in your life when someone expressed a genuine interest in you and brought out the best in you?
 Love needs nurturing.  Focus on bringing out the best in others. We all desire to be seen and heard. When we feel valued and special, it brings out the best in us. We can help others become stronger and better by focusing on their strengths and not harping on their faults. We discover more about ourselves and become the highest expression of who we are.  Be supportive, loving, and bring out the best qualities for ALL.

People will complain less, become less defensive, and feel better about themselves. Utlimately, it improves our relationships. These are practical conscious considerations for you to give your best and bring out the best in others:
                                               
                                                    -Create an atmopshere that is caring and safe 
                                                    -Be genuinely interested in the well being ofothers
                                                    -Be an intentional listener
                                                    -Encourage others to express their views 
                                                   - Be empathic and put yourself in the other person's shoes
                                                   - Respect the autonomy of others
                                                                    - Respond gently and tactfully
                                                   - Give praise and recognition 

                                   
Is there someone who needs to feel more loving? Is there an issue with someone that you can address in a loving manner?   Take the above steps and see where it takes you.
Be a model and create the ripple effect for change.

"HAVE A LOVE AFFAIR WITH YOURSELF"

How we feel about ourselves impact all areas of our lives including: Spiritual, Personal Development, Health/Fitness, Family, Romance, Finances, Business/Career, Fun/Recreation, and Social. We may give up on LOVE, but LOVE DOES NOT GIVE UP ON YOU! Even in darkness, the light is always shining. Love is the only reality. Leo Buscaglia quotes, "Love and self are one and the discovery of either is the realization of both". Uncover your brilliance and radiate the light within. This is your natural state of being. 


LOVE happens within you. Soothe, nurture and care for yourself inside out. Flourish in your own love and tend to yourself like tending a garden. Practice and embody the nine Ingredients in the Recipe of Love: Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Humility, Courtesy, Unselfishness, Good Temper, Guildesness, and Sincerity. You are deserving of your own LOVE.  Keep a journal on what each ingredient means, what each ingredient feels like, and how it feels when each of these ingredients are demonstrated by you and to you. Be consciously loving and aware in each moment.

Raise Your Consciousness to the Vibration of Love

We often are irritated and annoyed with ourselves and the actions of others for decisions that proved unfavorable. We may continously beat upon ourselves with much regret, guilt and shame. Einstein quotes, "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it".  We are all on our path of evolution and respond at the level of our own awareness. Raise you consciousness to the vibration of LOVE.

LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST

Life depends upon contact with Life. It cannot spring up out of itself. It cannot develop out of anything that is not Life.... Do not begrudge the hand that shapes you"--Henry Drummond

How do we grow as human beings even in the midst of the most challenging situations?  Elizabeth Kubler-Ross states that, "It's our purpose to grow as human beings, to look within ourselves, to find and build upon that source of peace and understanding and strength that is our individual self. And then to reach out to others with love and acceptance and patient guidance in the hope of what we may become together".   

Live a free and natural life and let life unfold spontaeously without anxiety. Let it unfold like the flower that gradually blooms.  Bloom with grace where you are planted. Is life not full of opportunities for learning to Love?  Mired in fear, I attracted more that catapulted me into the  'Dark Night of the Soul". It was the most transformational experience of my life from which sprung extraordinary opportunities to know myself, return to love and realize what Love really means.

Meet obstacles and challenges with Love. Engage in self-inquiry and ask why you are encountering these life experiencea. Practice the ingredients of Love: Patience, Kindness, Humility, Generosity, Courtesy, Unselfishness, Good Temper, Guilessness and Sincerity. Keep your LOVE LIGHT Journal and chart your progress. Love is transformational!

Invest in Yourself and Bloom with Grace


  Let this New Year truly be a new beginning. Let go of all that burdens you and weigh you down.  Start fresh. Discern what seeds will produce fruit and plant them. This may require investing in yourself. What new skills do you need to learn to reach your potential and make your dreams a reality? What support is needed from like-minded people who will encourage you? It may require you to find your Voice and speak with clarity, courage and truth. Nurture your inner self for Divine inspiration and guidance. LOVE yourself and find JOY in all that you do. Be Patient with yourself. If you step on a path that does not seem to be taking you where you need to go, don't stay too long. Quickly make the change.  

We cannot help others without helping ourselves.  There are problems everywhere that need solutions. Be creative! My adage, "Each one, Reach One, Teach One". See the ripple effect of change.  Give it your All!

Plant and nurture seeds of LOVE that will grow and flourish. Bloom with Grace and make a difference in the lives of others. Plant seeds of kindness, courtesy, generosity and be the mighty Tree of Life. Journal on how this makes you feel.  How does this make a difference in the lives of others? See where it takes you.

  LET GO AND SET YOURSELF FREE!

    "He has not learned the lesson of life who does not every day surmount a fear "-Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are preparing to embark on a New Year filled with hope and opportunity. We cannot grow if we are not willing to change. Ironically staying stuck can be comforting. Some fear responses can be healthy and protect us. However, fear can be paralyzing and inhibit us from fully participating in life. Fear is the great wall within, and is a block to our personal growth and manifesting the life we desire. The tendency to replay the same outworn stories keeps us mired in the past.  There is Hope, "Our thoughts create our reality".


How do we let go of fear? We can forgive ourselves and end the suffering. what is. Live in Peace. Elimate words that resound fear in our daily life such as "I can't, I will never, It is impossible". Trust your inner guidance that will lead you forward on your path. Ultimately, Choose LOVE and reframe from being the victim.  Let go of the past, faithfully learn the lessons and don't look back. The past is only memories of days gone by.


Fear has be be acknowledged in order to gain control over it. Make a list of your fears and what is keeping you from enjoying your life. Is it guilt, doubt, worry, feeling unworthy? What triggers your fear responses? What outcome would you really desire to experience? Can your fear be conquered through direct confrontation As Mark Twain quotes, "Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain".  Imagine the life you desire filled with Love, Peace and Joy. Feel how you would like your life to be? What will it take for you to make the first step? Let's make healthy choices to make this New Year one that is abundant and make your dreams a reality.
