“Woman is… the Master of her thoughts, the molder of her character, and the maker and shaper of her condition, environment, and destiny. As a being of Power, Intelligence and Love, and the Lord of her own thoughts, woman holds the key to every situation, and contains within herself that transforming and regenerative agency by which she may make herself what she wills.” From As a Woman Thinketh~
Good morning day!
I am surrounded by the most beautiful and sacred! My face feels warm. I am just coming out of my prayers and smiling. In this moment I am exactly where I am meant to be and doing everything that I am meant to do. Today I have no worries. I am not anxious. I am not even hungry because I feel full.
Today I am meditating on WILLINGNESS. What are we willing to do to have everything we desire?
We are willing to sacrifice our own happiness in order to make others happy!
We are willing to be what we are not to make others comfortable!
We are willing to keep things bottled up inside rather than get it onto the page and write that story that stirs inside!
We are willing to kill our dreams because people around us are afraid of following their own hearts!
We are willing to hold onto things that do not serve us because we are afraid of being alone!
What are we willing to do to change this?
What are we willing to do to TRULY have the life we have dreamt of?
What is that dream?
Being WILLING… is taking that step toward that thing that we desire …
It is a willingness to get there no matter what…
A willingness to do whatever it takes…
A willingness to get there no matter if we fail…
A willingness to get there no matter if they hate us…
A willingness to get there no matter if we feel stuck…
A willingness to get there no matter if we have never finished school…
A willingness to get there no matter if we are broke…
A willingness to get there no matter if we are afraid…
A willingness to get there no matter if we are alone…
A willingness to get there no matter if we are not paid…
A willingness to get there no matter if we have nothing to eat…
A willingness to get there no matter if we are facing eviction letter #6…
A willingness to get there no matter if our kids don’t understand…
A willingness to get there no matter if no one understands…
A willingness to do the work expecting nothing in return…
It is about BEING WILLING!
Willing to commit!
Willing to show up!
Willing to take the risk!
Willing to fail!
Willing to fall!
Willing to look stupid!
Willing to believe!
Willing to do whatever it takes no matter what!
It is being willing to move forward with everything you have!
One of the things that upsets me is when someone gives me an excuse as to why they didn’t come, call, follow through, get it done, keep their word and do what they say they are going to do. I prefer someone saying to me, “I am just too afraid to do it!”
Our circumstances do not define us! Our past does not define us! What people say about us or think about us does not define us! None of it is true! The excuses we make are a crutch that hold us back and prevents us from having what we deeply desire! Happiness and love!
Today I am thinking about the many people who surround me with family obligations, responsibilities and expectations that they use as their excuse for why they don’t GO FOR IT!
We are not going to make everyone happy!
We can’t be everything for everyone!
When we follow our hearts others are granted permission to do the same!
What we give ourselves we give to others!
This is about you!
When will you commit?
When will you focus?
When will you get it done?
When will you follow through?
When will you finish it?
When will you let go of the story?
When will you leap?
When will you jump?
When will you fly?
When will you begin?
You can do this! I believe in you!
Just believe! And be willing!
Join me on July 20th – take one step and watch the universe align!
And so it is!
