Now I absolutely know what my dream life looks like and the experiences and people I want in it. However, I now ask myself how it feels as I move closer to it. How do I want to feel experiencing my dream life? How do I want to feel with the people that are part of that dream? Life for me is about relationships whether they are family, friends, colleagues, or romantic in nature. I focus on how I feel and move forward from there. Sometimes it’s being actively involved in those relationships, while other times it is sending love from afar and not physically participating. By knowing how I feel in the moment and how I want to feel, it allows me to take inspired action and be persistent from a space of love. So if it feels good/exciting/right/happy/fun to make that phone call, send that email, hit send to that text, then I do it. If I find myself sitting in a space of fear (lack, disappointment, uneasiness, worry, etc.) then I hold off on the call, the email, the text, and get myself centered again. Fearful thoughts, words and actions simply slow down the process of living your true awesomeness; it doesn’t stop it unless you choose to live in fear. Live in love and allow fear to visit from time to time so you can further clarify what your dream life looks like and feels like.
For the next week, I invite you to be persistent by:
Acting from love: When you are feeling good – make that call, send that email, visit that person, text who you want to connect with. Pay attention to how you feel.
Being still in fear: When you find yourself in a fearful state of mind, be still and gentle with yourself. Reach for a better feeling thought by noticing how you don’t like to feel and reframe it to how you do like to feel. Be still in your outward actions while focusing your inward actions on feeling better. Pay attention to how you feel.
Mostly, my wish for you this week is to show up each day in deep gratitude from who you were, who you are, and who you are becoming and live fully as each day is precious, each day is different, each day allows us to renew our passion for living and loving.
Until next time, I won’t give up on us as we all deserve to live happily ever after.
