Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
As we start a new week, let us reflect by using a positive word and focusing on it throughout the day.
Think about this word when things get stressful.
If you are trying to change the situation, you know that words alone are not going to make a difference.
However, when presented at the right moment, they can offer a jolt of motivation that inspires you just enough to act.
There is also quite a bit of wisdom to be gained from listening to other successful people talk about how they got to where they are.
For the past two weeks, Dan and I have been focusing on just that; by posting positive words and showing how it reflects on our days.
We have explored these words so far, time, faith, self-worth, happiness, encouragement, self-talk, optimism, karma, forgiveness, trust, appreciation, thoughts and words, power.
Today since it is a new week, let us explore rebuilding.
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses, and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.
What if one day you woke up and decided that you were tired of feeling tired and that you had enough of everything?
Enough of stress and anxiety, enough of anger and resentment, enough of struggle, lack, pain, and poverty, enough of tears, heartbreaks, self-destructive thoughts, behaviors, and relationships and enough of all that is negative and toxic?
What if you decided that you wanted to change yourself and your life but did not know where exactly to start, what then?
Well, the first way to start to rebuild your life is to make a commitment to yourself.
And why not start today, on a Monday?
Once you decide to make this commitment, then forgive, release, and let go of past hurts and resentments.
Fill your heart with love.
Learn to embrace with grace all that you face.
Shift your focus from the bad on to the good, from the pain on to the gain, from resentment on to forgiveness, gratitude, and appreciation.
visualize your achievements and create your destiny, ask yourself this question; if there were no limits to what I can do, be and have, how would my life look like?
Let your imagination run wild.
Dare to dream big.
Do not settle for less than you are worth.
The power of imagination is incredible.
While rebuilding, working hard, dreaming big!
Act upon your heart’s desire.
Do the things you need to do to get where you want to get.
Read the books you need to read, contact the people you need to contact, build the skills you need to build.
Find a mentor!
Dare to ask questions!
Do whatever it takes to move yourself closer to making your dreams come true.
Trust that with every step you take, your life situation will improve, and you will become even happier than you already are.
Do this one step at a time, keep in mind that a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step.
To rebuild you need to develop a deep trust in life, you must have faith.
You must have trust.
Trust in yourself, trust in the people you interact with and trust in life.
Put your fears aside.
Allow yourself to be vulnerable.
Develop a deep trust in the wisdom of life.
Give yourself permission to fail and make mistakes.
Trust us when Dan and I tell you that in every mistake there is a lesson to learn.
A lesson that will be very beneficial to you as you continue walking on your life’s chosen path.
Also, be good to yourself, because if you do, the world around you will start mirroring your behavior.
Take good care of your mind, body, heart, and soul.
Nurture good thoughts.
Act in compassionate and loving ways, towards yourself and the world around you.
Spending time alone, spending at least 5 to 10 minutes per day in silence would make you feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and renewed.
Then, give up living your life to other people’s expectations.
Way too many people are living a life that is not theirs to live.
They live their lives according to what others think is best for them, they live their lives according to what their parents think is best for them, to what their friends, their enemies and their teachers, their government and the media think is best for them.
They ignore their inner voice, that inner calling.
You have one life.
This one right now.
You must live it, own it, and especially do not let other people’s opinions distract you from your path.
Discipline your mind to stay present in the now, learn to be present and engaged in the present moment.
Be happy with what you have, what you know and who you are right now.
Do not allow your mind to trick you into thinking that you will not be happy until you get where you want to get.
Appreciate what is in front of you.
If you learn how to be present and engaged in the now, you will live a very happy and content life and no matter how many challenges life will send your way, you will become a better not bitter person.
Also, surround yourself with loving and supportive people.
People who can lift you up when you are feeling down; people who will turn on the light for you when you are in the dark; people who can see you for what you truly are and who you can truly become.
Take the advice of Mark Twain and keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but great people make you feel that you, too, can become great.
You need positive and loving friends who will support you in your new way of life.
So, are you really to rebuild your life?
As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.
The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.
THINK ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE PLACE in nature and how it makes you feel.
It is important to feed our souls by removing ourselves from everyday life and connecting with our inner animal.
Each of us has a spirit that is awakened by being in nature.
Enable your wild side to be nurtured by its innate need to be in a natural environment.
The mountains, desert, ocean, hills, lakes, and trees are calling.
Where will you go to awaken your spirit?
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, Tai Chi, and Qigong.
Dan and I have started back bouncing and walking to Walk at Home YouTube.
It is always important to change your routine around you but continue keeping a healthy lifestyle.
For us, that may be walking through a park, walking in a mall, or going to the gym and just staying home, bouncing, and walking to Walk at Home with YouTube.
This also includes daily meditation and twice a week Tai Chi.
