Life is always serving up reminders for me. I love it when I “get it”. After a week of dealing with a respiratory infection, which by the way brought it’s own load of reminders which I’ll get to later, I’ve spent a lot of time paying attention. Noticing is one of my favorite activities. With the virus there was little else to do than notice so I’ve spent the week looking around and within. This is the first time I’ve experienced “sick” in many years and I can’t say I much enjoyed it although a lot of healing work and resulting wisdom has come from it. Anyway, back to the story as I tend to wander around a lot in these blogs posts, and my books now and again too. Actually I do it on purpose to help you pay attention and not go into automatic mode because your brain starts filling in the blanks before you finish reading, with all those experiences that have come before. See, I did it there.. Got your attention didn’t it?
Here’s the story and the insight. I logged into my Tweet deck to see what was going on and then had an idea for a tweet of my own. I typed it in the appropriate space and hit the tweet button. At once I got a notice that it had not been tweeted as it appeared it was an “automatic tweet”. What? How could Twitter be so confused? I had just sat there and typed the little message. So I hit Tweet again and it went through. Good deal..
Now what in the word does this have to do with anything you might be interested in? Well… how often are you just going through the steps you call life? Most humans aren’t really living, they are just going through the motions of survival, day in and day out. We scramble about like mice scurrying to find another crumb of food so we can make it through another day. Is this all there is to life? Is this all you want from life?
Be honest with yourself. Are you really living life the way you want to? Are you filling each and every day with the experiences you really want to have? Why not? What’s keeping you in automatic / reaction mode? What are those beliefs that you are limiting yourself with? Since I’ve written quite a few books, thousands of articles, done hundreds of videos and recorded thousands of audio on the topic I want to remind you to go over all that wisdom I’ve already shared with you. Right now take a few minutes to be still and honest with yourself about your life. How is it measuring up against the life you want to be living?
Dedicate today to noticing and being honest with yourself. Pay attention to what is going on in your mind, body and spirit. Ask Why? over and over again. Where did this come from? Who created this? What is my role? Where is my power? What have you done recently that you actually, really, truly wanted to do and enjoyed? Be true to yourself. You can create a new experience starting this instant. You ARE that Powerful!
I love you, love yourself well.
