Just when you thought you loved yourself, go ahead- love yourself a little more.
We are all conscious creators on this planet, but many of us fail to realize the power of our thoughts and feelings. Our society encourages us to take action, to see progress, and to quantify our successes, but no results can take place if you don’t truly care for yourself on the inside.
Be your own biggest fan.
The world quickly changes when you realize your greatest success is fearlessly loving yourself.
Life will effortlessly fall into place when you care for, love, and respect the you that you were born to be. Everyone will have an opinion- but what is your own opinion about yourself?
Look within and listen to your heart.
Who do you want to be?
Once you know and embody the true you, you’ll see a change- a change within, a change around you, and a change in how you are treated. Once you treat yourself with the loving kindness you deserve, remarkable things will shine through.
Here is a great manifestation video from Aaron Doughty- 2019 is a powerful year for attracting what you desire. Get into your passion frequency, but first, it all starts with self-love!
Being stuck on the train is always a good time to start a new post.
Appropriately, this made me start to think about patience.
2018 has been yet another year for self discovery, picking yourself back up, and learning to think differently in this crazy world we live in. In January I set out with big hopes and dreams, got discouraged when they didn’t work out fast enough, and lost hope- briefly.
Then, at the end of August, I realized an important lesson: life has other plans for me.
Instead of looking at the outside to determine my success and worth, I began to look even deeper within.
I found myself going back to teaching this past fall while I continue to write, work on myself, and help others learn to live their best life. I hadn’t expected to start teaching again, but the opportunity appeared right when I least expected it.
We try so hard to perfectly plan each move we make, only to find that life works on its own timeline. Each detour provides a lesson to react differently than we have in the past, whether it’s a stopped train in Cambridge or coping with a loss.
As I work with others in every area of my life, I’m grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned in 2018 and try to implement them on a daily basis. On some days I learn patience with students, and on others I learn to let unkind words roll off my back.
Life certainly does have its own timeline, and it’s my job to make the most of everything it brings my way.
Taxi cabs, loud voices, and the shoving of people in a crowd- it sometimes seems impossible to stay calm in life’s chaos. There’s two types of chaos I can experience in my daily life- the hustle of the city and the ongoing stimulation of others around me.
At times, I would simply like to sit quietly by the water or live in a place without so many people or complications- yet my heart lies in the city.
Lately I have been thinking a lot about staying calm through the chaos life can bring. From gossip to managing room of students, both my personal and professional life can wear me down at the blink of an eye.
So, how does one keep their balance?
Somehow I have managed to retreat to my own little world- a world where I am limitless, peaceful, and content. A world where I find solace in my creativity, music, and nature. A world where I am able to communicate with something much bigger than me. A world where I live with purpose.
So, whether you’re frazzled at work or in the middle of an argument, remember to take a deep breath and look within. You’ll be surprised at the solace and can find within yourself.
