If you expect bad things to happen, they will. Remember, your attitude determines the opportunities OR the troubles that you attract into your life. If you want to be successful at anything, optimism is key!
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
If you don’t build your DREAM,
someone else will hire
you to build THEIR.
So you had better get out of
that kraal of self-pity and
start to soar.
Believe in who are even when the whole world does not believe in you
there will always be this one person who says I know we shall get there
just but a little while. That become the power that exerts the untapped potential into you.
Political unrest and emotional upset are growing daily. We seem to have entered an alternate reality in which confusion rules. Anger, fear, and hatred seem to be increasing exponentially. It is a challenging time for us all. My personal challenge is to become a warrior of truth while standing within my values. Without kindness and integrity, I have nothing to offer. Without courage and conviction, I risk losing the freedom to express myself. In a sense, I have been training my entire adult life for this opportunity to be fiercely loving
I struggled with joining the resistance. In yoga we learn “what you resist, persists” and the law of cause and effect teaches that we attract that which we fuel by our attention. How can I participate in an effort that would only enhance the negativity I see growing? Yet I am unable to remain silent and watch as justice becomes an obscure memory of a long neglected democracy.
I realized that standing for my beliefs of freedom, equality, diversity, and fairness is completely different that fighting against a man, an executive order, or a threat of tyranny. Speaking up for the civil rights of my fellow citizens activates the energies of synchronicity to support the efforts of preserving justice. It is possible to amplify the power of change by keeping my focus on love rather than fear.
While it is true that I wish the popular movement had chosen different language than “resist” and “protest”, I am able to get beyond these labels and see the heart of the matter. I see people waking up and getting involved in their own unique and creative methods. I see brave souls taking action and joining together to protect one another and this planet we call home. I see the necessity of getting involved, knowing I could not live with myself if I sat on my meditation cushion as the country I love falls into ever-deepening despair.
I see clearly that I am able to contribute my voice and participate in a way that is aligned with my truth. We each bring our own individual offerings to the whole, and together we create a synergy that could not be accomplished without each and every member. Every instrument is invaluable to the symphony. It matters not if you play the violin, the trumpet, or the triangle. It matters only that you show up and play.

No don’t just scroll. Stop scrolling
and ACTUALLY smile. Think
of any happy moment in
your life and actually smile
Do it. It might just brighten
up your day
Look at yourself in the mirror
and tell me what you see.
The world is watching to see which kind of person
is gonna come out of you, so be careful to treat well
those you find on the way
The world needs those who can stand out
no matter the consequence.
Impossible is only found in
the vocabulary of fools
