I’m grateful for this journey. I find myself saying this a lot no matter what journey I’m talking about. I have referred to creative, intellectual, financial, social, occupational, physical, spiritual, emotional, environmental, and parental journeys. Each journey offers so many gifts and learning experiences. My 365-day journey of daily aligning with love, abundance, and peace is coming to a close and once again, I’m grateful for this journey. I’ve been amazed at where this journey has taken me day to day. I love how much more aware I’ve become of when I’m aligning with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. I’m able to stop mid-thought and take a new direction. It really is AMAZING! I no longer have to get stuck in any thought cycle because I have tools to get out of any unwanted spin. It doesn’t mean I won’t forget to use my tools from time to time, I definitely do. The blessing is that I don’t stay in the spin as long.
My inner world is so much healthier since I started making the daily effort to align with love, abundance, and peace. I’m so grateful for this amazing journey.
Today, I commit to enjoying the journey. What better can anyone do for themselves than to enjoy the journey? Enjoying the journey is CHOOSING to align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace over fear, lack, and separation as often as possible. It’s not about denying where I am at any particular moment, but it is about embracing it all. I grow from my pains and my pleasures. Each one becomes a blessing in it’s own way, because each experience brings opportunities to grow.
Enjoying the journey is about being present to experience as much as possible. I can only ever do the best I can in the moment. Some moments the best I can do is sit and zone out. Other times, the best I can do is help a person process a difficult situation. Then there are the times when I get to experience the AWE. Whatever the moment brings me, that’s my reality in the moment to do what feels right. Why not embrace it all? What does denying any part of what is do for me? NOTHING! I love growing and expanding on my journey, so I will continue this journey of living from a loving place one moment at a time.
Moments like the one below are an amazing reminder to stay present. If I didn’t to walk up to see this, I would have missed it. From the parking lot, all I could see was a pathway, a large area of grass and a view of the ocean. I had to walk up to the edge in order to see this amazing view. Then from there, I spotted a wonderful path. I walked all the way down passed that lighthouse and loved every second of it. I didn’t let anything else happening in the outside world get to me, I just enjoyed the journey.
I’m given opportunities to experience things with every passing day. It’s my choice what I want to do with the time I’m given. It’s my choice how I want to process the experiences that I’m meant to experience. If I experienced something, I was meant to experience it, because that is what happened. All I have to do is figure out how I want to process what happened to best serve my journey.
- How do I want to look at it?
- How does it serve me to look at things the way I’m choosing to in this moment?
- How does how I’m choosing to look at things make my life better?
- How do I process the pain in my life from a loving place?
These are just some of the questions I ask myself to help me embrace and enjoy my journey. If you’ve been on this journey with me at any point over these last 364 days, I hope that you are noticing what just subtle changes in perspective make possible in your life. Of all the the journeys I’ve taken, understanding the power of perspective is the one that has changed my life in the most INCREDIBLE ways. The better I get at seeing that I’m choosing a perspective that is causing me suffering, the faster I’m able to turn it around find my way out of the fear, lack, and separation and move into the love, abundance, and peace.
