life is constant re-balancing what, or where, do you feel that life isn’t quite working how you want it to? do you feel that you are off balance, or out of control? should you even have control? maybe, what’s needed is to let go and allow
allow what? what do you want? what’s most important to you? what’s important in this moment? will a certain outcome for this moment, this challenge, this time in your life, have as big of an effect that you are feeling now? can you let go the overwhelm, control, stress, anxiety and allow life to flow? let life flow to a new balance
what is balance? is there ever really balance? i don’t think there is we change, we grow, we face new challenges we always want balance, but with change and growth, we are always re-balancing, there is no – balance let go what you need to let go, and allow the ebb and flow of life to be your balance
i love summer and seeing the trees full of their leaves. i like to watch the leaves shining, shimmering as they dance and reflect the sun. i too love the pieces of me, dancing and moving together reflecting the different pieces of me and who i am.
i am not always happy to see the leaves falling, and i resist the thought of summer and fall passing into winter. what am i resisting in my life? what pieces of me am i holding onto that i need to let go to allow for growth?
why do i resist? the trees don’t resist the letting go of their leaves. it is nature. it is natural. it is intended for growth to let go and allow for change.
what do i need to let go? the change of seasons indicates that letting go for being and new growth is needed. i need change for my being and growth too.
it’s not easy to let go some pieces of you, even the pieces you don’t want, they are connected to you, a part of you. i have experienced, letting go allows for growth.
and so i do so again. this time, not so graciously, i put up a fight. i kicked and screamed. i allowed myself to do the kicking and the screaming, i allowed all that energy to flow through me. and when i was done, i let it go.
i let it leave me, i decided that i could feel it and that i didn’t have to hold onto it.
right away i felt lighter. right away i felt freer. right away i felt new positive energy coming in to create and grow in the direction that i want to go.
i was being truer to myself and allowing more of me to be who i want to be, allowing more of me to do what i want to do, and allowing more of me to experience what i want to experience.
it’s interesting to me that as the trees have lost their leaves, i too have lost some pieces of me. i let go what needed to be let go to allow for my being and growth. i let go what i needed to let go to live my truth.
what change do you want? what do you need to let go?
i’m not happy with an experience in my journey right now, i want it to change. it is not a change that can be done quickly, it will affect many other areas of my life. i am easily overwhelmed and stressed by small triggers and need to make the change as soon as possible.
i find myself getting overtaken and lost in feelings of worry and doubt, fear of not… not finding the change i need, not acting quickly enough, not making the right choice, not living my truth.
i am so happy and grateful for many things in areas of my life that i want to change, but so often i get caught up and swept away in the wanting of change, wanting something more that i don’t have.
and i wonder if i focused on being grateful for what was good in that area of my life, what then would i create? and how much faster could i create it?
letting go of the worry, doubt and fear. letting go the overwhelm and feeling lack.
allowing gratitude to fill me. gratitude for what is good in this part of my journey. gratitude for what i am learning and experiencing. gratitude for the challenge. gratitude for the growth. gratitude for all the pieces that were (and are) good in this piece of me that it is now time for me to change.
gratitude for growth!
what am i going to create?! it is a new adventure on this journey of my life!
knowing your values and the answer to what is your passion or what’s most important to you helps to guide you and keep you growing. and in challenging times to help you ‘keep on keeping on’.
one of my phrases during a major life change that was challenging was, ‘it’s good it’s going’.
the changes in life throughout life may be good positive changes for us – that does not mean that they are easy to experience.
we need to know how to deal with and manage; doubt, fear, anxiety, high stress levels, and worry.
knowing what we are passionate about or what’s most important to us, and having goals or visions for our passions and what we want gives us a vision. so that we can move towards the vision; giving us positive energy as we move towards what is most important to us.
what is most important to you?
what are you passionate about?
are you taking steps to go in that direction? it will help you to ‘keep on keeping on’ having a positive focus on something important to you if you are going through a challenging change right now.
when you live your life positively; you look for the positive in ALL of life
the good in people (you know it’s there)
the positive outcome in a bad situation or event
the lesson that you are learning
the experience that you are gaining
you blind yourself to the negative that you DO need to see, to open to awareness and take action on.
you view the bad and negative as a challenge, as a period of growth – which is good – if that growth is in alignment with who you are.
even when you like change and are welcome to change, if you are only looking for the positive; you do not readily see the right and positive choices, the right and positive path to the changes that need to be made.
you start traveling, or drifting, off course through the wrong choices and changes down the wrong path, giving and pouring your positive energies into these changes.
then slowly, or suddenly, realizing that you are not following the path meant for you, you are not doing what makes you happy. you are not doing what’s most important to you.
are you blinding yourself to negative that would be an awareness to you for a different change?
are you blinding yourself with a false positive and not living your truth?
I want to create change and growth in my life. To create the change and growth I want to be more disciplined in some areas of my life. I know that what I need to do is create habits to be part of my routines to support the changes that I want.
One of the disciplines, a habit that I want part of my daily routines is reading my affirmations and connecting to the visions I have for the life that I want to live.
This habit is one that I have had in the past and slowly it became less and less a daily habit.
I didn’t notice myself missing this habit right away, then I started wondering about some of the challenges that I started experiencing in my life and I realized that when I was reading my affirmations in my morning routine my days were more positive. My days were more directed by what I want to be, what I want to do and what I want to experience. My days would have a sense of urgency, but not overwhelm.
With the challenges I was experiencing in my life many of my days I was feeling overwhelmed and stressed, rather than positive and purpose filled.
Are there habits and routines that you have had and would like to begin again? Is there a habit that you would like to create for new change in your life?
Begin a new routine today to create a new habit that will help you to change and grow!
I want changes. I want more things and I want new things. These things are not going to happen for me if I don’t make changes to allow for the new things to come into my life.
So it’s time for me to play with life. To play with my habits and routines so that I can add new habits and routines that will attract the new things that I want into my life.
I know my most productive time for creating is mornings and I want to be doing more creating than I currently am, so I’m going to play with doing some of my current morning routines later in the day and see where they could fit and allow more morning creative time for myself.
Some of the changes I want to play with will also be good for other things that I also want in my life. Being more physically active with my family and other activities that I can enjoy with my family rather than by myself.
I also like to play with life so that I don’t get stuck in being too comfortable and then resist change in my life.
Change is growth and expansion, and I like to be continually growing and expanding.
What do you want new in your life? What can you play with in your life to allow more room for what it is that you want?
