Awaken Your Day - Jan 6, 2017 - Your Path, You Lead

"Not everyone will understand your desire to transform. That's ok. It isn't their journey to understand."
- Internet quote

It is your path and you will lead the story how you see fit.

Be careful of two things. You should not alter your path just becuase some of those around you don't agree - however, for those that care about you and may worry due to not understanding, it does not hurt you to share with them some of what is going on inside you - so that they worry less, and may suitably support you more.

There is a whole lot of inspiration out there that says Blaze away and forget those that don't get on board... but it does not need to be the Lone Wolf mentality. I am a collaborator... so I attempt to look at it a little different. Often - it is a simple communication that realigns all things good.

Focus on the word "Transform" versus Change. Focus on "Lead" versus Abandon. Those that care, you can Lead them through your belief and desire about your transformation and you will allow them understanding without alot of effort. Those that question before they listen ... well, all you can do is let them sit back with their portion of the story - the worry or speculation - while you Focus on the path before you - and eventually, those paths should cross again.
Just a random thought on a Friday.

 Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You... Leading where you can.

Awaken Your Day - Jan 4, 2017 - Simplicity has ripple benefits.

 "Organize your sock drawer."
- Pierre Couturier

Sometimes when you need inspiration the most - it is sitting in front of you in a simple Ha ha moment, or a simple task. What you may need is a quick victory. A little fist pump-clear a thought- seemingly meaningless - achievement. But do not under estimate the value in those little achievements.

There is a great connect-the-dots feeling to be had by organizing little corners of your day.
Organize your sock drawer -(define as you wish).
Clean out the fridge.
Check the fluids in the cars.
Clean a shelf in the closet.
What the hell is in this junk drawer and why do we still have it?
Puff up the cushions on the couch.

And for sanity sake - put some music on while you do any of it.
Awaken something in your day - in a simple way.

Good morning...Greater Day. Greater You - in quick little ways.

Awaken Your Day - Jan 3, 2017 - New Inspirations

"Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. Big, undreamed-of-things - the people on the edge see them first."
- Kurt Vonnegut,
Found in "Tools of Titans" by Tim Ferriss

I do not have alot to say about this one today. It is better to just let your mind, and your heart soak it in. Relate to it. Picture yourself on a hill, back from the top and you see the hill and the sky ... and then you move up to the top and you can see the beautiful valley spread out below with all the wonderful streams and trees and color ... and life and so much more opens up to you.

Pretty simple concept.

This phrase I will be keeping close to me this year. I need to desire that view from the edge ... to seek out and grab hold of all that New Inspiration that awaits.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You - with just another step forward to see that much more.

Awaken Your Day - Jan 2, 2017 - Yes You Are

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
- A.A. Milne, Author

Reflection. Sometimes we need to look back in a moment of quiet and actually look at how far we have come, what we have lived through, what we have endured and in all that, how we have grown.
When we do this we find confidence in our abilities as we see from a different angle, those life experiences we have journeyed through.

Life has given you challenges - and you are now more brave to stand up to new ones that present themselves because of rising above before. You are stronger emotionally, and with your self worth because of those challenges - all of them. And we often do not see how life smart we have become, until we look back and recall our decisions along the way ... to get us through, to get us over, to get us excited and motivated.

As you begin a new chapter now, do not just make promises of good intent to relieve some self created pressure. Look at what you truly have within you to make these "promises" achievable ... introduce yourself to the HOW and WHY you will succeed and then watch your plan become much more believable to You.

Good morning, Greater Day. Greater You - yes, yes you are.
