Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #361

I’m grateful to be able to celebrate other people’s lives and accomplishments. I get so many opportunities to be in a state of joy by celebrating others. I’m grateful that the people who have graced my life. I’m grateful when people share their joys, successes, and loves with me. I don’t care if I’m looking at a plate of food someone loves, family photos, celebrations, achievements, or majestic nature scenes, I feel honored to get to share in other people’s lives.

If I get to a place where I’m not enjoying celebrating others, I know that is about me, not them. That is an opportunity for me to look at where I’m feeding the energy of fear, lack, and separation. I’m grateful for those moments too. They reveal an opportunity to grow and see where my thoughts, beliefs, actions, and inactions aren’t lining up with the life I actually want to be living. I know I’m in line again when I feel authentic joy celebrating someone else.

Today, I commit to celebrating other people’s lives and accomplishments. Tears are already beginning to well-up in my eyes as I think about how many people’s lives and accomplishments have touched my life. From the birthdays of loved ones to the successes of my fellow authors, along with every joyful exchange in-between, thank you for sharing.

As we all know, misery LOVES company. This is why when I’m in an internal struggle, I want to pick up on the struggles of others or criticize their joys. If I’m not in internal chaos, I have no need to take others down. When I’m in a healthy mindset, I can sit and celebrate others in away that brings me to a state of AWE. Sometimes celebrating others is what I need to show me where I am. How I’m celebrating or criticizing others is my mirror to what is going on inside of me. That’s why it brings me great joy when the simple thought of thinking of other people’s lives and accomplishments is so overwhelming to my system (in the best of ways). I love knowing that I’m contributing to the energy of love and joy in the world by celebrating someone else.

If I find myself feeling pulled down by what is going on in the world around me, I often go to celebrating others to lift me back up. I LOVE where my mind goes when I start focusing in on how awesome it is to be invited to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of others. I even love seeing people’s plates of food, whether they are celebrating making it themselves or are excited about getting it at a restaurant. If I’m living in the energy of love, abundance, and peace, than other people living in that energy will expand that within me. It doesn’t matter if the other person or I are in that joy for a brief moment or an extended period of time, when I celebrate with them, I’m a part of the collective energy of love, abundance, and peace in that moment—and it FEELS AMAZING!!

To all the people who have honored me with a space in your lives, thank you!

This piece is dedicated to my sister, Rebecca. Happy Birthday!!! Thank you for being the beacon of strength, courage, love, compassion, empathy, and quirkiness that you are. I love you with all my heart.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and peace #208

I’m grateful for the feeling of accomplishment after making my bed. My most productive days come after making my bed. When I start the day feeling accomplished, I set myself up for success the rest of the day. I’m already in the right head space to produce. I’ve closed the door on my time for sleep and ignited the fire of taking on the day. When my day is over, no matter how much else I did throughout the day, I set myself up for a beautiful transition back into rest. I feel accomplished as I mark the moment by going back into my chrysalis to absorb the lessons of the day and start fresh again tomorrow.

Today, I commit to making my bed and feeling good about it. I haven’t been in the habit of making my bed every single day. Working at home, I sometimes am writing in bed. I definitely notice the difference when I clearly define my lines of rest and productivity. I get so much more done on the days I make my bed and move my work to a different space.

Over twenty years ago I was at a time management program and the presenter talked about the importance of the routine of getting out of bed in the morning. He made clear points on how it sets a person’s productivity for the day. I took to heart much of what he said. Recently, the bed making concept resurfaced and a lightbulb went off as I looked back at the days when I made my bed and the days I didn’t. Conclusion, I need to make my bed!

Today, I’m re-committing to this simple task that makes me feel good instantly. One of the greatest gifts I’ve noticed by doing this is that my energy is aligned with love, abundance, and peace while I’m doing it, afterwards, and when I come back to see it throughout the day. When I pull back the covers at the end of the day, I feel a peace that I don’t feel when I didn’t complete this task.

I love observing how my energy is affected by simple things throughout the day. I have to admit, I was pretty shocked how making the bed affected my energy. Becoming conscious of the things that align my energy with love, abundance, peace or fear, lack, and separation is such an incredible journey of discovery. I have learned so much about myself, others, and humanity as a whole.
