Today I am grateful for personal growth
“It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
― Germany Kent
Growth changes one thing at a time.
Mountains are conquered one step at a time.
Journeys are traveled one mile at a time.
“Fear and anxiety many times indicates that we are moving in a positive direction, out of the safe confines of our comfort zone, and in the direction of our true purpose.”
― Charles F. Glassman, Brain Drain The Breakthrough That Will Change Your Life
Being unapologetically myself
Choosing to do the right thing
the next best thing
but take no crap.
“An authentic and genuine life grows like a sturdy tree. And like a tree, it grows slowly. Every time you make a different and better decision, it grows a little. Every time you choose to do the right thing, even when nobody would find out otherwise, it grows a little. Every time you act with compassion, relinquish your right to strike back, take a courageous stand, admit fault or accept responsibility, it grows a little.”
― Steve Goodier
one at a time they fall
“Where your fear is,
there is your task.”
― C.G. Jung
Letting go of fear means saying “NO”
NO to unexplained behavior
NO to things that are not in my best interests
NO to people who are wishy-washy
NO to uncomfortable situations
“Having healthy boundaries not only requires being able to say “no”, but also being willing and able to enforce that “no” when necessary.”
― Jessica Moore
Letting go of fear also includes listening to intuition
the small voice that says
‘This isn’t right.”
“This is too fast.”
“This person isn’t real.”
“This is not the right road – change course.”
I have learned that when I do not understand something,
an action by a person
my intuition is always correct.
“Intuition is always right in at least two important ways;
It is always in response to something.
it always has your best interest at heart”
― Gavin De Becker, The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence
Living consciously in the present and listening to my intuitive heart over my head has opened a new world of reality in which I can truly be myself.
A reality devoid of expectations,
filled with peace,
the ability to let go,
realize that people don’t always stay,
strength to say goodbye, and recognize
if they choose to leave, they were not meant to stay.
The lesson they were sent to impart has been learned.
Each person in my life is there for a reason, a season, or a lesson.
Some longer than others,
and that is okay.
“Life is really very simple. In each moment, we have the opportunity to choose between saying “yes” or “no”, to listen to our intuition, to listen to our true inner voice, the Existential voice within ourselves. When we say “yes”, we have contact with Existence and we receive nourishment, love, joy, support and inspiration. When we say “no”, we create a separation from life and begin to create dreams and expectations of how it should be. We begin to live in the memories of the past and in the fantasies of the future – as if any other time than here and now really could make us happy and satisfied.”
― Swami Dhyan Giten, Presence – Working from Within. The Psychology of Being
I am worthy
I am healing
I am a badass
I am growing by leaps and bounds!
