The Future, The Past, And The Almighty Present
Here you stand, on the threshold of your future. Let nothing hold you back from the colors, the texture, the very design you choose for the "layout" of the rest of your life. The past is in the past, although the hurt may linger from the memory of our experiences; it is important to remember that we are now in the present. Our decisions and current outlook deeply impact the future. Letting go of what was, and allowing what can be to now enter our lives, is a pivotal practice for a successful future. The present moment is a powerful thing. In this moment we have the opportunity to recreate our lives in precisely the manner we have always wished to.
In order to do this, we have to "get out of our own way." We need to allow positive influences to be more dominate in our lives than negative. Infusing each day with life affirming, books, cd's, classes, retreats, people, and conversations make a profound difference in what we manifest daily. Focus on these three suggestions and allow them to support you in leading a healthier, happier, and more peaceful life.
1) Simplify: "Rome wasn't built in a day" and neither was your new life. Let go of items, habits, and emotions which are not bringing you peace. As you do this your clarity will increase dramatically. There will be more room in your life for this wonderful moment, right now.
2) Forgive: Do not underestimate the power of forgiveness. Holding on to resentment will block your happiness at every turn. Forgiving does not mean we "forget" but it does mean that we move forward and stop allowing anger to run our lives. Your lack of forgiveness hurts only you, and damages the possibility of positive prospects coming your way.
3) Be Optimistic: The old adage "fake it till you make it" applies here. Fake enthusiasm! Be optimistic about your future. There is a big difference between being optimistic and being phony. Waking each morning with a positive outlook and approaching each experience, person, and opportunity with a sense of adventure tells the Universe, "I'm ready for a great life!" Faking enthusiasm is a great exercise to get you in shape for your life affirming New Chapter.
Bring daily reminders into your life to support your intention to live well. Listen to positive messages, even if only for a moment or two during your daily commute. Start the day with an uplifting passage to set you on the path you desire. Today is a new day, this moment is "mighty" indeed; it is a moment which will never come again, so embrace it with your whole heart and have a beautiful day.
