CLEAR YOUR MIND~POSSIBILITIES AWAIT!

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday!  What will today bring?  Sometimes we know and sometimes we have absolutely no clue.  The latter is more fun.  It leaves you open to surprises!  Out of curiosity, which one of you said, "uh oh" in your head?  Who out there thought immediately that surprise is synonymous with disaster?  If I said more of you went to the dark place rather than the light, I would probably be right.  Too many of us are hard wired to feel the thorn instead of smelling the rose.

We have so much power yet we don't believe in our abilities.  We have so much strength but feel we are weak.  Perhaps we were raised to think we weren't good enough or maybe just maybe we did this to ourselves.  If you are the source of  your inadequacy, stop it right now!

Today's quote is, "Sweep away thoughts of insecurity and doubt for only a clear mind can be open to endless possibilities."  Possibilities for anything cannot exist in a clouded mind.  Overpowered by fear and doubt, we can see nothing to the right, to the left, in back or in front of us.  Use you inner strength and power to jump over those waves of negativity.  Repeat a mantra to yourself.  Do whatever it takes until you convince yourself that you are worthy to receive.

Insecurity and doubt are obstacles we place in our own mind but we are also the ones who have the power to remove them.  Waste no time!  Opportunity awaits!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! Love, Amy

STEPPING FORWARD OR STANDING STILL

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Do you daydream?  I often find my mind drifting at certain times in my day.  Sometimes my thoughts are random and go from "did I put the wash in the dryer," to "I need to buy yeast." Sometimes my mind completely leaves and I find myself visualizing  a country road or the shore of a beach.  Definitely two of my favorite places. It won't be long before my visualizations become a reality, (excluding the laundry and food shopping) and that's because I have been doing everything I can to make it happen.

Nothing happens simply because you want it to.  You have to make it happen.  In your mind's eye, envision a rainbow and think about what you would like to find at the other end AND how you are going to get there.  You need a plan and you need to plot each movement one by one OR just admire those beautiful colors, two very different approaches leading to change or stagnation.

Today's quote is, "Everything you do is a step to the next place - everything you don't do is also a step."  True that! Remember that it takes time to get to where you want to be.  Once upon a time we found our way to the working world and it wasn't exactly what we wanted to do but we did it anyway.  Then we found ourselves somewhere that was a bit more challenging and fulfilling but we weren't quite there yet.  Sometimes we refused to acknowledge that there was even anything remotely interesting out there.  Not a step in the wrong direction, but a decision we made.

Get the picture.  We cannot possibly get to step 10 without going through 1-9 but somewhere around step 5 you may need to take your time and regroup.  Whatever you do, whatever approach you take know that it is all part of the process!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

LET LOVE LEAD THE WAY

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday to you.  What drives you?  What moves you?  What is the motivating force that gets you out of bed in the morning?  Is it money?  Yes, I said money.  Are you getting up because you have a job to go to?  One that provides you with the funds you need to live in your home and have dinner every night.  Are you getting up because there are people in your life who depend on you?  Do you throw the covers off and jump out of bed because you are so excited to see what the new day brings?

There are many things that drive us, move us and motivate us but the one thing that drives us all is love.  Yep.  Love.  Love is our driving force.  Today's quote is, "It is from love that we are guided."  The simplicity of this quote is what is so powerful.  Think about it for a moment.  It is from love that we are guided.  Of course it is.  A job you have may be unfulfilling but does fill your bank account so there is a roof above you and a plate of pasta for a meal.  You may not love the job, but you love a warm house and a hot meal.

Who wants to jump out of bed at 4 a.m. but if your child is crying or a loved one is calling, that's what you do!  You may love your sleep but love for your children trumps the need for zzzz's.  I bet you thought this was going to be about doing what you love!  Landing that dream job and living life on your terms but everything so far has been on your terms.  The job you chose, the home you live in and the children you have.

Jobs change, children grow up and our lives take a different turn and still, love will always guide you. At some point you will find a different direction based on love from where you choose to live and how you spend your time.   Love what you are doing this very moment because moments do not return.  Cooking again?  Maybe a tiring chore but you are doing it for the ones you love and who love you even more!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

SHOWER YOURSELF WITH LOVE

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Positive affirmations are wonderful.  Their purpose is so that we remain...well, positive!  When you look at the mirror do you greet yourself with, "good morning gorgeous," or do you look at your face examining it with the precision of a forensic scientist noticing your perceived imperfections.

If that's how you start your day, looking at what's wrong and thinking of the difficulties that will greet you when walk outside your front door, where do you expect it to go from there?  Today's quote is, "Rapid descent occurs through betrayal of the mind - a mind which showers you with negativity and defeat."  Why why why do we do that to ourselves?  Habit!  We are in the habit on focusing on what is negative rather than what is positive.

We were all taught not to be conceited and not to boast about ourselves and to be humble.  There is nothing wrong with celebrating something great about yourself.  Life is about balance and the way we treat ourselves needs balance as well.

No, we will not be an expert in everything and yes, there is only one winner,  but just because you didn't get a trophy doesn't mean you are a loser.  Next time you feel that wave of negativity swimming through your veins, think of that one thing that makes you the unique being that you are.  Next time you are in the shower let those negative thoughts go down the drain and shower yourself with love, the love you deserve!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
