I’m grateful I LIVED through 2020. I didn’t survive 2020, I LIVED it! There are very few years where the world experiences a global challenge to actually make the way we do things pivot in so many different ways. Though our specific struggles look different, how we approach the challenges is critical to if we are living life from a loving place or a place of fear. Ten people can be faced with the same circumstances and all handle those circumstances differently. For me, 2020 was not about surviving. It was about making the choice to LIVE each day. There have been so many people who lost their lives in 2020 for a multitude of reasons. There have been people who have chosen to focus on the fear of the future, instead of LIVING in today. There are also people who are so stuck in the past, where they are blind to the gifts that today brought them.
I’m not going to say that I haven’t had bad days and struggles this year. I absolutely have! That doesn’t stop me from doing the best with what I got daily. I’ve watched when I’ve slipped, and I get back up. I’m choosing to LIVE. Not just for me, but for all the people who came before me, and the ones who will come after. My LIFE matters and I will treat it like it does. I’m grateful I’ve been blessed to live another day to contribute love to the world through my words and actions.
Today, I commit to LIVING. This means that I will be conscious of the choices I make today. I will stay conscious of where I’m letting my mind wander; I will stay conscious of how I’m contributing to the lives of the people around me; and I still stay present in how I’m taking care of my own needs. Today, my focus will be on what I DO HAVE and what IS in front of me. I will focus on what I CAN DO. When my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace, I’m committed to LIVING fully from the heart. My heart sings just thinking about it. That’s how I know that I’m LIVING my best life NOW! My best life has nothing to do with what is happening in the world around me. It has to do with how I’m living in the world within me and how I use that to contribute to the world around me. My best self only LIVES in this moment. My choice is what I want to do with it. I need to figure out in the moment I’m in:
- How do I best contribute to LIVING?
- What do I need to operate as my best self right now?
- Where is my energy going? Is that where I want it to go?
