here to there

do you get caught up in the want, want, want of life?

i do. there are so many wonderful and amazing things that i want to be, that i want to do and that i want to experience.

there are days that i am focused on what i want, and only what i want. i forget to be in the NOW moment. i forget to enjoy the journey.

wanting is good. when you want something more, something bigger, something better for yourself – it is growth and expansion.

do you fear change and challenges?

change and challenges are opportunities for growth. many challenges are created from our dreams and desires to be more, to do more, to experience more.

wanting more, is creating challenge and growth. wanting creates change.

change and challenge are things to be grateful for.

what in your life has looked like challenge that you can look at now and see growth?

 

what challenges and growth have made you you?

who do you want to be?

what do you want to do?

what do you want to experience?

what growth and challenges do you want to experience to create all that you want?

dream. grow. create.

gratitude in the gap

what are you feeling right now?

are you feeling lack and wanting or are you feeling love and gratitude?

lately i’ve been stuck in feeling lack and wanting. the lack and wanting is part of the gap

the gap of what i want and where i’m at currently

the gap is good, awareness is good

feeling lack and wanting is not good

feeling gratitude and wanting is good

it’s a subtle difference: lack and wanting versus gratitude and wanting. the difference is what you feel

gratitude and wanting is excitement and enthusiasm for what you want. an energy to live and experience and create all that you want

gratitude and wanting is awareness for growth, connecting and creating

what is your gap?

what do you want to create?

be grateful for the gap! be grateful for growth!

live your truth!

what are you experiencing now that you can choose to grow from? what are you experiencing now that is giving you an awareness for what you want different for your being, for your doing, for your experiencing, for your life?

do you want to be patient, loving, brave, kind, aware, connected, positive, joyful, calm, grateful, empathetic, teaching, curious, guiding, leading, authentic, responsible, accountable, trusting, empowering, courageous, wise, knowledgeable, happy, creative, giving, hopeful, ambitious, daring.

gratitude in the gap

what do you want?

are you feeling the lack of the want? or are you feeling the awareness and gratitude for the want?

often when we get in the gap we are feeling the lack of what we want. when we feel the lack of what we want our energy is in negative flow.

what do you want? what are you focused on? are you noticing a growing list of what you don’t have? are you feeling overwhelm of what all you need to accomplish this want that you want? is your body tight and tense, shoulders lifting to your ears?

you can feel the gratitude in the gap for three things. the awareness of what you want, the growth you have experienced and the journey of the moment.

what do you want? what are you focused on? are you curious about creating what you want? are you excited to learn and do new things? is your body light and free, muscles loose with flowing movements?

are you noticing what you want and being curious? what can you learn about what you want? what will you discover about what you want? what will you discover about what you want to create? what will you discover about yourself? notice what you can discover and create and be grateful.

are you noticing the growth you have experienced to lead you to this new want? where were you, in this moment right now are you living a past want? as we experience life and grow, we are expanding spiraling upward, creating the life that we want. our wants grow and expand. our old want has grown and expanded to our new want. notice your growth of your want and be grateful.

are you noticing this moment you are living? what are you experiencing? what is the journey you are on? who are you being? what are you doing? what are you creating? this moment is for you to be who you want to be and to do what you want to do. this moment is for you to experience what you want to experience. notice that each moment is part of your journey. there are the moments of your past, there will be moments in your future, right now is the moment of your present. live and experience this moment and be grateful.

what do you want? what is your gap? be grateful in the gap for you have experienced many moments to be in the gap. be grateful in the gap for you are creating your dreams and desires. be grateful in the gap for you are in this moment living and experiencing your life journey.

what is your gratitude in the gap?

live your truth!

what do you need to learn?

i’ve been writing a book. i enjoy the writing and feeling the creative energy moving through me into thoughts and words on the paper. still, i have stopped and started multiple times. i am in the phase of my review and editing before i  pass it on to the experts in other areas that i will need help with.

amazingly, and not surprisingly (although it does still happily surprise me when the universe gives me exactly what i need), i saw an online summit for authors and publishing and have been listening to many sessions all about being an author and publishing.

i knew that there were decisions that i need to make and that i didn’t know what my decision should be because i didn’t have the knowledge to make the decision. after listening to the summit sessions i am able to make many decisions to keep moving forward with publishing my book. and the decisions i still need more information to make a decision, i know where to look for the information.

i like this experience, it reminds me that though i’ve been moving forward (although haltingly) with this process of writing and publishing my book, there were still things that i needed to learn and get educated about.

what are you working on in your life? what are you moving forward to that you need more information? where can you get that information? what are you going to do to get the information you need to keep moving forward and growing in the direction that you want to go and grow?

keep and learning and growing!

live your truth!

grow

are you growing?

are you becoming more? are you doing more and more of what you want to do? are you doing more and more of what you want to experience?

what do you need for your growth?

  • awareness – do you know what you want?
  • connection – are you connected and listening to yourself?
  • fun – what do you enjoy doing?
  • challenge – where are you coming from?
  • enthusiasm – why do you want what you want?

these are important to me for my growth. when i am growing i’m connected to myself. i’m aware of where i am and what i want. many times, even when it’s hard, i’m enjoying what i’m doing and having fun.

when i’m connected to myself and know what it is that i want i feel enthusiasm and energy to begin creating what i want and growing.

i’m curious, what helps your growth? what are some of the feelings and activities that you do to help you become more?

are you doing more? are you experiencing more?
