“What matters is how you feel about yourself, right here and right now, because that’s what determines how you conduct your life here. There’s no time except the present moment, so it’s important to be yourself and live your own truth.” ~ Anita Moorjani
There is never a better moment than this one…to seek and live in our own Truth. To be our authentic Self…to find out who we are and live by that knowledge. It is when we go within and uncover that True Self and love and accept that Self unconditionally, that our lives and purpose fall into place. This is the moment. Be Yourself!
“If it’s not exactly like you thought it would be, you think it’s a failure. What about the spectrum of colors in between.” ~ Sara Evans
In this world of “instant gratification”, I believe the judgment of success or failure has become skewed. If something or someone does not hit instant, major, global, phenomenal, major success status immediately upon launching whatever endeavor is being attempted, then it is deemed a failure. And so…we have pictures and expectations in our minds about how we want our endeavors to go and how we think we should reach our goals. And if the outcome does not look the way we thought it should…then we feel we have failed. But as the quote says…what about all the colors…or levels of success in between. On the color spectrum, there is black and white on either end. One success, one failure. Now…what about all those other colors in between that count for a level of success or completion or lessons learned to do better next time. No color is wasted on that spectrum. So, no moments we spend in our endeavors are wasted either. Take the crayons of life and color your world with ALL the colors of what you have done, achieved, and struggled with…for all those colors make up the entire picture…of YOU.
“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” ~ C. JoyBell C.
I have written much about Direction in life here on the blog…but I just love the quote above for its simple wisdom and inspiration. I know it is difficult not to know where we are going in life, and we have our goals that we want to reach. But as the quote says…it is when we are “suspended in mid-air” that we find out who we truly are and how much creativity, strength, and courage we have…and we find out just how high we can soar. Until those wings are tested, we stay on the ground. Don’t be afraid to fly into the wind with No Direction! Your wings, and your Inner Wisdom, will know where and how to carry you. Trust! YOU ARE MAGNIFICENT!
