You Are the Author of Today

change_your_life2

Your diet may not work, but you do. The latest fad might fade away, but you won’t. You are the life force behind change. Every decision, every discipline, every effort, is chiseling away; revealing the masterpiece within.

Don’t rely on things, methods, people, ideology, traditions; utilize them, and then create your own. All Creation lives within you! You are alive. Vibrant. Spectacular. You are powerful, beautiful, loved and lovable. There’s no better you than you.

Don’t give your power away. Be careful who you credit for your success. Great inspiration doesn’t transform; it ignites. You have the right stuff. You are made of the right stuff. Deep down inside of you is the you you’ve always dreamed of being. Today is your day to let your light shine, to let you come shining through.

Be you through and through. Love yourself. Hold your head up high. Do something today that makes you feel a bit taller. Stretch up on those tippy toes and smell the air up there where you belong. Celebrate yourself!

Leave the sad song, the who did you wrong song. Drop the chains, the guilt and the shame. You are not a mistake. It’s all been a test to show you how strong you are, what you are really made of.

Go out and create what you want today. It’s your life. It’s your story. You are the author of today.

Struck Down But Not Destroyed

Get Back Up (1)

Life Throws Sucker Punches.

It punches you in the gut sometimes leaving you gasping for breath in the corner of the ring. You didn’t ask for it. You didn’t do anything to deserve it. It just happened. Out of nowhere. WHAM!

That kind of blow knocks you on your assets, disorients your reality, unseats your confidence, and, for a moment, causes you to wonder if this is the final blow.

With your face in a pool of your own blood, you faintly hear the referee standing over you counting you out. “1, 2, 3, 4…”

A part of you cries out, “It is finished!

Another part declares, “You’ve been knocked down, but you are not destroyed. Get back up!”

You whisper to yourself, “do you have what it takes to get up again?”

The referee continues counting, “5, 6, 7, 8, 9…”

Where will the final count find you?

Then It Happens.

The numbness dissipates. A sense of awareness returns. Getting your wits about you, you realize this is not unto death.

This ain’t your final fight. You’ve been struck down but you are not destroyed. There’s more left in you…a lot more!

A setback is a setup for a comeback, IF, you get back up!

This isn’t your final round. This is a setback. Get back up!

It’s not over until you win!

Your comeback is waiting on you to get back up!

What Would Tomorrow’s You Do?

future-self-2

Thursday’s Thought: What Would Tomorrow’s You Do?

What would tomorrow’s you say about the decision you make today?

You are growing, evolving, getting stronger, better and wiser. What you are afraid of today, you will conquer tomorrow. What is hard for you today will be easy for you in the future.

That’s why it’s key to not to make rash decisions today based on only what you know now.

Think Outside Of Now.

Think of your life the way you desire it to be, and begin making decisions from that mindset.

Your future self is affected by the decisions you make today. Stop before you say no to the opportunity that’s knocking, your future self may be counting on you saying yes.
