I love to travel. I like going new places I’ve never been before. I’ve done more traveling this year than I have in the past 5 years all together. Of course, traveling means cars, planes, buses, and trains. It also means packing. One of the things that I dislike the most about traveling is shlepping my luggage around. And because I fly coach, and somehow always end up boarding with group 3, by the time I get to my seat the precious overhead bin space is already whittled down to a minimum.
How many times a day do you wish you were further along with your goals and objectives?
- Why don’t I weigh exactly what I want to weigh?
- Why am I not fit and running more and more frequently.
- Why aren’t I living in my dream home.
- Why haven’t I left my job in corporate for my dream career.
I understand, I get it. I go there too.
(You can’t get pulled over by the imagination police, you know?)
I wish you believed in yourself the way I believe in you.
I wish you could see the brightness of your heart.
I wish you could be okay with and accept your imperfection.
I wish you realized that it’s your imperfection that makes you human and beautiful.
I wish you knew how much you are loved.
I wish you knew how much you are admired.
I wish I could show you the impact you’ve had on others.
I wish you knew that they’ve already forgiven you, even when you won’t forgive yourself.
The mistakes you’ve made can’t be helped – and we’ve all made some. Yours are not the worst.
You are not the most terrible person in the world.
You have a good heart.
You can do anything.
You are not weak. You are strong
and you should stop being so afraid.
They’re going to love you.
Rituals are a big part of our lives, whether we realize it or not. Getting up, brushing your teeth, making coffee… all apart of the daily rituals that are your life.
Today, however, is even more special than others. Today is the Autumn or Vernal Equinox, also known as the first day of Fall. Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I think back to when I was a child. There was something magical about the fall. While I didn’t like raking leaves, I do recall my dad picking me up and throwing me into a big pile of fallen leaves.
You’ve set goals… but now what? What do you plan to do differently to ensure that you actually reach them? Are you tired of just carrying them over: week to week, month to month, year to year? Always waiting and hoping for the right time and that some bit of magic will make it different?
A vision board is a reminder. A visual post-it note of what you want or desire in life. Vision boards are constructed from images, words, and other media that are meant to illicit feelings of exhilaration as well as enthusiasm for your dreams and goals. It may be helpful to create a vision board as well as display it in a location where by you will see it often.
