Clutter is not just the stuff on the floor. It’s anything that stands between you and the life you want to be living.
Recently I celebrated a birthday with someone and they are having a difficult time with getting older. I have come to a place where I am comfortable with getting older, as each decade of life brings its own challenges, joys, sorrows, and teachings. Yes, there are a few things I wanted by a certain age, and I think that is the overachiever within myself. I am learning that it’s not about my time, but in God’s time is the right time. I am learning to trust the lessons of each cycle of my life. I am happy with where I am in life. Each moment is a moment of life, your life and remembers to make each moment count. There is no day but today. What does getting older mean to you?
When you are busy creating your own fulfillment, you won’t feel the need to seek it from others.
(TGIPF) This morning I was listening to Fantasia “Bump what your friends say” and the song made me think about a lot of things. If you are feeling confused, alone, unsure of what to do next, go back to a place you can trust—– your heart. In matters of work, money, love, go back to your heart. Are you unsure of the map, uncertain of the next step on your journey, or wondering how to untangle the mess of a broken heart? The answers are not in your head, it’s in your heart. It’s not outside of you, although sometimes we receive guidance from others. The answers you’re seeking, the guidance you’re seeking needs to feel right to you. It needs to resonate with your heart. Have a blessed weekend!
I am learning to give but not allow myself to be used. It is important to love but do not allow your heart to be abused. Trust but don’ t be naive. Listen to others, but don’t lose your own voice.
I think I missed a couple of daily inspirations on last week due to my schedule. I am back and with a lot on my mind. I am currently learning that it is okay to not know sometimes. Sometimes we think we want, the next best thing, or what we think our lives will look like down the road. That’s okay. If the answer is I don’t know, then say it. Sometimes the reason we don’t know is that it would be too difficult, too confusing for us right now. It would take us out of the present moment, cause us to worry and stress about how we could change, or control it or what we have to do to make it happen. Knowing would make us afraid. Sometimes our hearts know, but it’s just not time for our conscious minds to know yet. Sometimes knowing would take us out the experience we need to go through to discover the answer we’re seeking. And sometimes the process of learning to trust, the process of going through an experience and coming to trust that we ultimately discover our own truth, is more important than knowing.
Live in such a way that if anyone should speak badly of you, no one would believe it.
Success means we go to sleep at night knowing that our talents and abilities were used in a way that served others.
Our bodies can help provide us with direction. When we are centered and balanced, our body will help show us what we really want to do. We will literally lean toward or away from what we like or don’t like. The more we connect to our bodies, the more we will live connected to our hearts and ours souls.
Last night I was in the bed thinking about life (my professional career, love life, my personal goals and what is next for me). As I get older I am learning how to be patient with myself. When I started my career, I wanted to have my Ph.D. and own a house before 30. I had to realize that is what just that my goals but God had some other plans. I am learning that it’s not in my time but in God’s time when things fall into place. It is ok to set deadlines, and say when. When it comes to some goals, there is never a perfect time. Taking time to be gentle with yourself is imperative. The seeds of change grow gently, sometimes almost imperceptibly. Transformation takes time. I am personally working on letting go of unrealistic expectations of how quickly I, or others, need to develop and change.
