Letting Go of Fear

What is holding you back?

What is holding you back?

 

Fear is a controlling factor for many of us. Procrastination and blaming others makes it easier than taking responsibility for ourselves. I am sure you all know people who are stuck in this mindset. I spent years worrying, complaining, procrastinating, and blaming life circumstances on others when in reality it was my own fears and actions that held me back. Today I work a little each day on writing because that was a dream from my early years. Writing and drawing were my dream. Last week I entered my first magazine contest. Whether I win or not, I feel successful because I actually released a short story out to the public. This is so far from where I was a two years ago. I also enrolled in another UCLA writing class with the goal of ending the class with a complete story ready for publication. Today while sitting at the garage waiting for my car I am utilizing the time to research so I can use the time wisely and productively while enjoying myself. Your creative juices can flow in any situation, even if just in your mind because that is where everything starts anyway.

What can you do today that will bring you one step closer to your dreams? Share it with the Universe and watch it come to fruition.

Love and Light!!

Relieving Loneliness

We are never alone

We are never alone

When I found this quote the picture drew me in and reminded me of times I sat alone on the bench in the park. I never feel lonely when alone especially when in nature. There are times when I feel lonely when wishing my children were still small however on those rare times I leave the house and take a walk outside. It is such a big beautiful world filled with so much love and kindness. One only need get outside, smile at others you come into contact to feel connected. I love sitting in the park watching children enjoying the playground. Their laughter always fills me with joy.

Once you overcome the feeling of loneliness while alone anything is possible. Creativity flourishes, books are read, new friends are met, new ideas develop in your mind, and, for me, journaling, photography and recording sounds of nature have become a new part of my life. There are always family and friends to visit but I enjoy my time alone.

Even though I believe this quote is about God or a higher being (whatever you refer to that higher being as) I think it can be interpreted in many ways. For me, I never feel alone because I feel connected with the spiritual world around me and is most likely why I feel so attached to being out in nature.

I wish you all love, peace and kindness in your life.

Love and Light,

Sandy

Living the Consequences of Our Choices

Quote by Caroline Myss

Quote by Caroline Myss

Is there someone in your life that you are blaming for your current or past situations?

Sometimes it seems easier to blame another for our life circumstances than to self-assess and discover the role you played.

Ultimately, we are the only one who makes choices about our life. Not making a choice to go in this direction or that direction is actually making a choice. It’s a choice to place our life in someone else’s hands. I have been guilty of this myself.

Looking back at your life with open eyes as if watching it play on a movie screen, without judgment, allows you to return to a time period in your life that had an impact on where you are today. Just view the events, paying attention to how you could have made a different choice or if the choice you made was the best at the time. Take into consideration the time period, ages of people involved, culture they were born into, societal standards of the time, possible choices that could have been made, and your part in the choices made. Once you have taken everything into consideration stop and release the burden of blame on the other person(s) involved and send them heart-felt love. Only do this when you can truly say that you can release them now. Love yourself for choices made and send love to your own heart. Learn from past and move forward.

Live a mindful, loving life by being an active player in your own life. Take charge of choices that affect you and your future.  Remember not verbalizing a choice, is a choice. It is a passive choice to follow along,  giving your power to another. There are times when this might be necessary however emotional choices that impact your life should be made by you. We shouldn’t give our personal power to someone else and then blame them later. Pay attention to your smaller choices so you can be prepared to voice your preferences in the larger decisions. It is your life – take charge and manifest the life of your dreams.

Love and Light,
Sandy
