Celebrate the small things! February 6, 2015

img_0670My birthday just passed and I was thinking about celebrating and what that means to me….   We are all so use to celebrating the big things like momentous birthdays, graduations, births and so on.  But what do you so for the smaller, the less acknowledged road markers?  What do you do to honor or celebrate the small things?  I believe that if we give ourselves permission to celebrate the small things (and who’s to say that they are even really small) we will have more to celebrate.  And then there will be more big things to celebrate.

Today I do not have a headache, which for me is something to celebrate.  So how am I going about celebrating. I am listening to records as I work!  Which I am normally unable to do when there is pain in my head due to an inability to concentrate.  How you celebrate is really irrelevant.  What is relevant is that you acknowledge the moment.  Give it its just dessert.  Ohhh and I think I will have some dessert to celebrate! In all seriousness, acknowledging the good in ones life is as important as acknowledging any feeling.

In all my years of coaching I see people focus more on the bad feelings and gloss over the good.  Those two words are italicized because they are only as weighted as we make them.  Everything is impermanent so why not acknowledge more of the good!  Celebrate!  Celebrate! Because if you choose to focus on the juicy things you’ll have more yummy things to celebrate!

 

Happy Celebration!

What To Do When All Your Efforts Seem To Fail… June 27, 2012

Now that I think about it, it depends on how you view failure…. I believe that there isn’t such a thing as failure.  I don’t want to place the judgement on the “thing” that happened as good or bad it’s simply an event in life that gives me a choice as to want I want to do.  Life is merely one moment after another of opportunities to make a choice as to where you want to go from here.

 

We all know the age-old adage, ” When one door closes another door opens.”.  I for one am not actually a fan of that adage.  Throw the windows open!  I think that are always windows and doors open to my house so I can yet again choose.  This expression some how connotes that the door has been shut on us as opposed to being the ones doing the shutting… a bad followed by a good… Why can’t we be the ones to place the weight on how we view our existence…. I’m the one shutting the door.   I know I’m probably getting rather esoteric about my door shutting analogy but think about it, we have choice over how we view what is happening.  If “failure” isn’t an option because there isn’t something we call failure,  just simply steps towards our future… wouldn’t that make a more  joyful life?  I believe that how we respond to everything in life is a choice.  We may not have control over our subconscious thought but we do over our conscious thought.  We have the choice to either suffer or not.  That said what emotions and responses are you choosing that you may want to take on another path…?  As opposed to seeing what we haven’t down look at what you have achieved?  As opposed to seeing the glass half empty, see that there is still water in it at all? I love to find the beauty in the situation so that the harder things are not so hard at all.  And after a while you may not see anything as hard it simply is what it is without any judgement.

 

So go throw your windows open and air it all out!!

 

Energetically with love,

Being Uncomfortable November 26, 2011

I understand that many people have differing view points on our thoughts and the power they hold. I myself have been a fan of the quote, “Thoughts become things… so think the good ones” (tut).  I Totally believe this belief.  That said that doesn’t mean that I ignore the  uncomfortable feelings when they come up and they most certainly will with most people.  It’s only natural!  They’re there for a reason: to educate, to illicit questioning and to open our eyes.  I believe that if we acknowledge what’s going on and process it, we can then move past it.  Ultimately make a choice.  Do I want to be upset, angry or whatever the feeling/feelings may be?  Do I want to hold on to this catabolic emotion so that it can have power over me? OR am I chosing the healthier more anabolic feelings?  What quality of life do I chose?   I know for one that it’s very important to understand where our feeling originate.  Being uncomfortable is there so that it can teach you something. And as we know every opportunity is an opportunity to learn.

What do you choose?
