Let’s jump back in, shall we?

Friends, followers and dedicated readers,

Happy Monday! It’s been awhile since I published a blog post and today, before I continued posting anywhere else, I told myself that I had to come check with my followers here. So, here I Am! ❤

Between having to squeeze content out to finish my book and having to deal with other personal and business related demands, these days I’m looking to only fill my time with things that are nurturing to my spiritual well-being. As a creative, it can get extremely exhausting when you’re constantly giving, giving, giving. When I pour out, I must engage in things and with people who pour back into me.

Here’s what I’ve noticed lately. Although I’m wedged and associated with many businesses and business related organizations and institutions, I really don’t care about any of it. That’s the thought that I had the other day. lol I care because I have something to give, but I’d rather be talking about something else. Something like sharing the techniques on how someone can become who they need to be to access the resources they desire. I’d rather discuss that instead of leading people to scour the earth for strategies on obtaining success (that is illusionary, by the way) by increasing their bank account. I’m not saying I have all the answers. But what I do know is, by applying practical skills and strategies to navigate through the everyday challenges in your life, you will undoubtably reach a personal success that will increase everything in your life, not just your wallet.

I think we make life harder than it actually is by believing that we need something outside of ourselves. That we are lacking something and if we get more money, a better car, or somehow bump into our soul mate while on the way to the grocery store, we’d finally be happy. That couldn’t be far more from the truth.

“There is no need to search; achievement leads to nowhere. It makes no difference at all, so just be happy now! Love is the only reality of the world, because it is all One, you see. And the only laws are paradox, humor and change. There is no problem, never was, and never will be. Release your struggle, let go of your mind, throw away your concerns, and relax into the world. No need to resist life, just do your best. Open your eyes and see that you are far more than you imagine. You are the world, you are the universe; you are yourself and everyone else, too! It’s all the marvelous Play of God. Wake up, regain your humor. Don’t worry, just be happy. You are already free!”

Happy Spring.

What you put on your social site(s) MATTER!

People make the assumption that just because you do not jump up and down, yell and scream, and plaster your page about issues personally related to you, that you don’t care about the current issues in this country or elsewhere. Whether global or domestic, if you didn’t post it, you don’t care. No. Been there, done that. 

In this day and age, and in the rise and reign of social media, I guess that’s fair, but let me explain.

What I know now, and what I have learned, is that when you’re posting and sharing your opinion on every issue there is out there, you’re adopting the energy those issues carry. Issues that are NOT positive and translate a LOW vibrational frequency. Yes, bad things happen in the world, but I’m not going to give my attention to it.

It’s why I’ve chosen to stay away from the news and television altogether. It’s why I’ve chosen to listen to certain types of music. It’s why I stay away from certain types of people – physically or virtually. Nothing personal. But, I understand how life and what becomes of it, is a result of what you feed it. Focus on.

I’ve made a conscious decision to choose positivity, imagination, creativity, and truth. The perfect plane of the ying and yang. As we all know, the truth can be harsh at times.

Where’s the lesson in all of this?

The lesson is to pay attention to the things you engage. Everything you entertain, influences you (see the previous blog post). If your goal and mission in life is not to become an activist/politician, then let the experts handle it. Solely voice your opinion when necessary. Show your support, but again, let the experts handle it. Just remember, you would never run into a burning building before a trained and professional firefighter. Stay in your lane.

If you want a happy life, choose to focus on happy things. Recognize that there’s negativity out there, just don’t focus or dwell on it. Therefore, I’m not saying ignore it altogether, but what I am saying is, CHOOSE to see the positive in all things, and all people. Keyword, CHOOSE.

Be of good cheer, be of good courage, and never hope unless you absolutely have to. Hoping is for those that are inclined to beg, and by the terms of your birthright, you don’t have too.
