Let Your Heart Be the Compass

You are the navigator of your life.  No one else can decide where you go, what you think, or what you do.  Those choices are up to you.  You must believe in yourself and trust your feelings when making decisions.

You may wonder how will you know if you are making the right decision.  Well this can be a matter of listening to your thoughts and feelings.  Feelings are the bodies way of telling us if we are on a negative or positive path.  Simply ask yourself "how do I feel?"  If you feel good then you are on the right thought path, and if not then you need to stop and change it.  When you are getting ready to make a decision you need to stop for a moment and think of how it is or will make you feel.

This is not to say that you will not make a decision that did not turn out to be the right one, but when you do you learn from that lesson and move on.  However the more in tune you are with your feelings you will be amazed at how much more centered you feel.  The more you check in with yourself and ask the simple question, "how do I feel?" the more you will get to learn your body and it's reaction to things.

So trust your heart/feelings in life they will guide you to what is going to bring you joy and happiness.

It's Not What Happens To You...

When something or someone comes into our life we tend to think that it is that thing that determines who we are and what we become.  What we need to instead realize is that it is our reaction to that thing that makes us who we are.

We choose how we react to situations and people in our life.  We choose how something affects us.  It is NOT the result of any outside source that we are who we are.  If you go through a divorce/breakup that does not determine where your life will go, YOU determine that.  You may find yourself blaming the other person for your problems post-breakup, ie. money, job, car breaking down, gaining weight, being lonely, etc.  However did they really cause all of that to happen? Or are you choosing to let it happen and react negatively about it?

Negative reaction = negative results.  It is proven via the law of attraction.  You get what you put into life and how you react to life.  So stop blaming others for how your life is and start taking responsibility for what happens to you.

The Magic of Mister Rogers: Final Day

You may have heard the phrase, 'you cannot love others until you learn to love yourself'.  Well this is a very true statement.  If you are dealing with your own personal demons and self esteem issues then it will come across in your daily life.  Others can see when you are happy, content, and love yourself.  It shines through and attracts people with the same self image to you.  Having an attitude of love brings more love to you.  Negativity can only create problems and bring more negativity.

Love yourself and the world will love you back!

The Magic of Mister Rogers: Day 5

With every person we meet, we leave an impression on them as they do on us.  Big or small they affect our lives and help shape us into who we are today.  You have to live your life knowing that you are important to others and that your simple presence brings happiness to those in your life.

By being a positive, happy, and compassionate person you are not only attracting those type of people and events to you, but you are also putting that out into the world and it is rubbing off on others.  YOU ARE IMPORTANT to someone.  And there are times you may never know just how special you are to someone but you just have to know and believe that you are!

The Magic of Mister Rogers: Day 4

Life is a journey where you figure out who you really are.  As you grow you go through different phases in your life.  It is amazing to me that how much differently I see the world and myself from age 20 to age 30.  It does take some time, some falls and mistakes, but it is definitely worth the effort.

Always look for the lessons that life gives you.  Always look for new meanings to things that have happened in your life.  People come and go for a reason just as you rise and fall for a reason.  Constantly seek out the truth in will be worth the effort.

The Magic of Mister Rogers: Day 3

Honesty is a character trait that is a gift to the world to truly show people who you are.  Being honest is not only something we learn as a child, but something we need to remind ourselves to be as adults.  When you are honest with yourself and those around you, you create a relationship built on trust.  You do not show a false sense of who you are and therefore allow people to get to know the real you.

We all know what it feels like to be lied to, or to think you know someone only to find out that they person they have been portraying was not truly them.  And chances are when someone is not honest to you, you have a hard time seeing them in the same light you saw them in before.  So be yourself and make it a point to always express honesty in your daily life.  It will allow you to live a true, free, and happy life with people around you who are the same.
