New Year or New Day

Every day gives you the opportunity to completely start fresh. It doesn’t have to be New Year’s Eve or a special day to declare your new goals and begin again.

Each year we’re filled with a set of cumulative new days which we can formulate at anytime into a life goal or plan.

It’s never too late or the wrong time to start something. You’re never too old, tired, inexperienced or unable to begin. Realize each day is a blessing and holds an opportunity to try. Dare to be bold and brave. See beyond your comfort zone. Look deep within to find a new path and start walking.

I encourage you to set aside some time and reevaluate your current goals and see if they still align with your values and life purpose. If not change them. Don’t be afraid and stick with old plans you’ve outgrown. Be honest and assess the direction you truly desire to go. Never get stuck with an old set of plans because they feel comfortable.

Invest in yourself daily. Even if you’re completely changing course, change today. Don’t wait to start what you can’t stop thinking about. Give a lot of yourself and you will quickly see the return.

How are You Fitting Into Your Life Today?

Take a moment to examine your life. Simply look at your day’s events and reflect. Are you fitting into a life you want?

It’s easy to get in a routine and simply fit your way into a life but at some point it feels uncomfortable. You’ve got to build a life to your size and fit in where you desire to be.

Get back in touch with your dreams and aspirations, your personal kindness and generosity, your gratitude and blessings, strengths and weaknesses.

We live in an abundant world and you deserve abundant thoughts that shape and direct your life. If you’re just getting by and fitting into a life that’s not quite up to your dream life, remember you’re good enough right now at any point to rethink and restart.

It’s okay to be anywhere in life but take time to reflect. Don’t just make a place for yourself, find a place. Take care to gently examine your direction and place abundant thoughts within your mind as seeds of hope building and reflecting back to you the life you desire.

You’re worthy of productive and abundant thoughts. Don’t simply take up space in life. Instead with care, work with yourself and in yourself to find your place in life.

The Sky Shows Up

The sky shows up everyday. It never really knows if it will be sunny, cloudy, raining or snowing. It’s an incredible landscape just waiting to be painted.

Life is a bit like the sky. Sometimes it’s as simple as showing up. The outcome can be an amazing masterpiece you never expected.

Hasn’t that ever happened to you in life? You’re at a turning point or standstill and then something fantastic happens because you were in the right place at the right time. You meet someone, catch a break, enjoy an unexpected surprise or simply experience a memorable day.

Feel the emotions: the fear, anxiety, confusion, happiness, excitement for the day and show up. Being there for the successes granted us in life is the easiest ingredient of success.

Imagine the possibilities. If the sky can transform into an incredible work of art, so can you.

Rediscover Your Blessings

It’s very easy to get caught up in the difficulties of life. Take time instead to rediscover and cultivate your blessings. Even if you have few, you have many.

Do you have running water? A safe place to rest your head? A few moments of quiet to yourself? A friend? Food to eat? Can you walk? See? Simple as they may seem, someone else doesn’t have these things or abilities and someone else may have lost their life so you have freedom and privileges.

In times of worry and anxiety, rediscover your blessings. When you still your mind and keep it on things you truly can be grateful for new things can break free and enter your world. If you try to build on a crumbling foundation of your struggles, it can be shaky. Instead build on a solid foundation filled with your blessings.

We all have so much to be grateful for and if this post allows for a few minutes of gratitude, you’ll have changed the day and a little bit of the world by changing your thinking. If you practice gratitude already, you know the benefits reach far greater than yourself.

A Journey in Bravery

At certain points in life we really have to dig in deep and become brave. It’s easy to be complacent and let fear immobilize us at times.

Being brave doesn’t require much but a little bit of change and change can feel very uncomfortable. Being brave isn’t about adapting a warrior attitude or winning battles. It’s simple a journey in which at some turning point you decide to be brave. You do something outside your comfort zone and it scares you but changes you.

If you want new results, adopt this method of bravery. Try something that will change your life in a new direction.

Remember, nothing is easy. Even sitting back and doing nothing has its price. The struggle is in the learning. The reward is the lesson. Be brave in your journey and learn from your bravery.

Live to Learn

Life is a series of lessons. The same can be said of success. It’s not easy when you don’t have a manual, guide book or teacher. Sometimes you simply have to show up and let life guide you to learn from it.

Never be so afraid to learn from life that you neglect to live. It’s imperative you pay close attention and align your goals and direction in accordance with a few of life’s lessons.

Don’t get stuck on failure. There is no real difference in life lessons between an A and a F just a perceived difference. The final grade doesn’t matter most of the time. Showing up for class matters all of the time.

If you have no teacher, learn the lessons to the best of your ability. If you’re fortunate to have a mentor, appreciate the time they put into your life.

Never spend too long focusing on the should haves and would haves, you aren’t meant to be perfect or you’d have all the answers from the beginning. Keep going and living to learn. Whether a new subject or language, the act of learning assists you in life.

Whether you’ve recently learned the hard way or not, adjust your sails and stay on course. Develop a passion for living and you will find a clear cut passion in life that leads to success. Share your zest for life with others. Determine your direction and let the subtle lessons we learn here help strengthen your course. Never let one or many defeats completely stop you in your tracks.

Keep learning and going after life, even if you simply live for your goals. Be accepting of failures, rejections and tough terrain. They teach us. Be surprised and grateful for blessings and success. Life is a journey best traveled by living for its marvelous and wondrous teachings.

Don’t Let Doubt and Fear Keep You from Trying

Doubt and fear are the two enemies you can’t afford to rob you. Never let doubt or fear keep you from trying.

They say you have nothing to lose by trying and I believe that’s partly true. When you try, you lose only your own doubts. Even if you get nothing in return, you’ll have accomplished something unexpected. You’ll have surprised yourself by stepping out of unfamiliar territory and attempting something new.

Unfortunately, fear and doubt stop us from even starting. Overwhelming beliefs we’re not good enough, unskilled or unable can literally stop us in our tracks. Don’t let this be your story.

In order to find your true path, you must learn to search within yourself and erase doubt and fear. If the life you’re currently living isn’t what you truly envision for yourself, then you must build up your confidence.

Doubt and fear will weigh you down. Keep them in check. It’s not easy. Once you see how these feelings operate to keep you stagnant, you might want to feel the fear but try anyways. Erase the doubt and fear chatter in your mind for a minute and see what might be possible and go for it.

Reinvent Yourself at Anytime

I know what it’s like to feel stuck on a path headed far from my goals. Sometimes we literally have to reinvent ourselves to become the kind of person that strikes out and chooses a path other than our familiar safe one. I’m here to encourage you to reinvent yourself and your plans at anytime.

Don’t think it’s impossible to recreate an image of the person you’d like to become. You can reshape your future if you try. Don’t let doubt and statistical standards keep you from your goals. You’re not too old or unqualified to achieve something. You’re just the right age and you can become qualified.

I suggest that if you’ve been putting up a few reasons or roadblocks in your mind as to why something can’t be done, you reinvent and reshape your way of thinking. Determine you will become the person required to achieve the goals you have in your heart. Keep going!

Become Your Own Best Friend

You only have to get along with one person in your life- yourself. Become really good friends with yourself. I did this and began to notice strengths, weaknesses and areas I could devote more time to improve.

Life is tough. It’s best to learn to be nice to yourself. In your own mind, you will discover a glorious and amazing find- you. It’s there you will enjoy the phenomenal view- your life.

It’s easy to get caught up in pleasing other people such as friends, family and coworkers. Once you get to know yourself, it’s easy to see which areas of your life are lacking attention.

It’s been said you can be your own worst enemy. It’s very true. We can build ourselves up or tear ourselves down within our own minds. Be positive, nice and caring to your permanent life long friend. Become supportive to you.
