#wednesdaymotivation

We are in full swing with the holiday season my loves and now more than ever we must take good care of ourselves, pay attention to where we are spending our time and energy, and truly offer our presence as a present to the people in our lives.

Right?
This is what life is all about! Being present.

Up on the @peacefulmindpeacefullife blog @michellemaros shares 6 simple ways to increase your focus and see the beauty that surrounds you.

“Practice being one-pointed. It’s really easy to have many different things going on at once. A lot of us think that multi-tasking is the way to efficiency. Distracted work doesn’t produce the best results; so try being focused on one thing at a time. In a conversation, give that person 💯 of your attention.”

Your presence with the ones you love is your superpower for meaning, less stress, and gratitude. 💛 ✔️ click the bio link to read more.

#wednesdaywisdom

One of my favorite authors and humans of all time is @annelamott. My life changed when I read Codependent No More.

When we compare ourselves to others we literally are giving up our life.
We’re saying to ourselves,
“ I’m not enough. I don’t matter. If I were like her/him my life would be better. I need something from out there to complete me.”

Use this affirmation when your mind begins to compare, “I love myself completely and I am enough.”

Comparison is the thief of joy. .

The amazing Buddhist nun and wise teacher @anipemachodron said this:
“Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”

We have no control over others, but you have 💯 control over how we respond and what we will allow.

You are powerful with your choices my loves. 💪

Wake up. Sit. Breathe. Connect within to how you’re feeling today in your body and mind.

We are not supposed to feel great, ecstatic, wow! I have my purpose and passion, love and light everything is fine in my world, every day.

This is a myth and a true falsehood about life.
Often life is difficult, unpredictable, and stressful so check in every morning, I ask myself, “How are you feeling today, Barb?”

Sometimes the best you can do for the day is take one step, and hold yourself together.

This is enough. Actually it’s more than enough my loves. ❤️💪

Everything begins with a thought in the mind. We think over 48 thoughts per minute. A thought is a just a thought, it comes into the mind without us knowing or choosing it, the “thing” just appears.
So thoughts have no power or substance at all unless we invite it to stay in the mind, talk to it, believe in it, and then suddenly the thought that is false, not wanted or invited, has power over us and begins to become the foundation from which we live our lives.

Sit with yourself in quiet every day and notice your thoughts, and understand deeply that you have 💯 control over what thoughts you will allow to occupy the precious space in your mind. You always have the power. It’s your choice my loves. 💪

#tuesdaymorning

Morning sunrise in NYC after my meditation.
These words from my favorite poet John O’Donohue are my inspiration for the day:
.
"May a flock of colours,
Indigo, red, green
And azure blue,
Come to awaken in you
A meadow of delight.
.
May there come across the waters
A path of yellow moonlight
To bring you safely home.
.
May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours." 🌅

Instead of allowing your thoughts to “think you” exercise your “right to choose” and put positive, uplifting, loving, helpful, beautiful, happy thoughts in your mind.

Between every stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies your power to choose. In that choice is your freedom and happiness.

Life throws us curve balls it’s our daily awareness practice that gives us the power to direct our thoughts at will, and ultimately be happy. 😀

#mondaymorning

Look in the mirror, directly into your beautiful eyes and say, "You are complete. You are enough. I love you."

Do this every day and begin a precious friendship with yourself.
Don’t ever doubt your worth my loves. 💛
