Awaken Your Day - Oct 24 - Review to Carry On

As we forge ahead on our journeys and quests for our passions and dreams, there are times when it is beneficial, even vital, that we pause and take inventory of all the wisdom we picked up along the way. Like an inventory of our resources and assets that we may begin to overlook as we strive for our next step on the goal ladder.

In these times of full schedules and busy go go go, might I suggest we pause, and flip thru thoughts, or notes of the journey so far.

It is a weekend before you. Gather up your successes and flip thru them. Gather those moments, comments that hit home and triggered action or passion and reignite them again.

Ask yourself some goal setting questions.

And...enjoy your day.

Quick reflection for myself is with those words I see here everyday, but due to that, I know I do not "hear" them everyday. Have a wonderful, and refreshing weekend.

Awaken Your Day - Oct 23 - Past is Past

"A form of addiction, the past is as much of a vice as tobacco, alcohol, or carbohydrates."
- Mike Lipkin

Hard to see where we are going if we are constantly looking behind us.

Did you ever try that eye trick as a kid?
I used to have this Star Wars activity book when I was around 10 or so.
There was this little trick... you look at a picture of Darth Vaders helmet.
On the nose, was a single dot.
You were to look directly at this dot for like 30 straight seconds. Nothing else, and do not look away.

Straight at the dot. And then, you were to look up at a blank wall and blink quickly.
Amazingly, you would "see" the whole picture of this Darth Vader helmet.

As I have come to follow this new path in my life...one enhanced with much more awareness, I see an easy comparison between this "eye trick" and how we often perform a "mind trick" with images of the past.

We get this moment or picture in our mind of this negative thought, or event from our past...and we burn it into our brain with relating to it, retelling it, rethinking about it...over and over. And then, when we look up quick to this blank canvas that is the unscripted story of our future... we see, and 'burn' the image of the past directly in our path.

We see it, we relive it, we often recreate it. We revisit it over and over like an addiction.
One thing we are told is that we migrate to what we are familiar with subconsciously. There is an unspoken security in what we are familiar with.

Like patterns we have in bad relationships, we subconsciously continue to be attracted to what we are familiar with. Or bad track record with our dreams, or attempts to succeed.

We must break this dependancy on the past. We must find strength to move forward.
Period. We talk about it...we elude to it...and then we get distracted by it again.

Yesterday is over. This is now, that was then. Use it as a step, but not as a constant, "Used to Be..."

Good day.

Awaken Your Day - Oct 22 - Why worry?

"Worry does not empty tomorrow of sorrow - it empties today of strength."
- Corrie ten Boom

In these troubling and uncertain times, we must try with all our knowledge and experience, to not lose the integrity of our wisdom, to constant worry.

In the calm we can think clearly, but in the cloud of worry we cannot clearly see the ground upon which we need to take the great first step.

When you find yourself giving in to the ease in which 'worry' can consume us ... be aware, and stop. Grab hold of your breath and the racing thoughts that do not seem to have a beginning or end.

We accomplish much less when we focus on the negative, and begin to believe that we can do nothing.

Good day, and I wish you a worry free plan.

Awaken Your Day - Oct 20 - Opportunity

"One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."
- Henry Miller

A new way of looking at things...
Like the value, instead of the dread, that Monday holds.

Opportunity Monday.
Cannot stress enuf, how important it is to change the way so many of us think about this one part of our week.

Have a great kick off to your week.
