“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein
When was the last time you woke up and felt grateful for the sun, the clouds, the rain, or the snow? When was the last time you paid close attention to your breath and wondered at the miracle that is your life? When was the last time you looked at your beloved, your child, or your friend and remembered what connected you in the first place?
In my training “Living an Endlessly Delicious Life” you get to explore achieving happiness every day and how to create self-compassion through appreciating the daily gifts before you right now. It is your conscious and consistent joy that creates your ability to manage change and the perspective for you to see miracles unfolding.
Life flows and sometimes hits really rough seas. Major change, expected or unexpected, can deteriorate your self-esteem, create uncertainty about your future, and bring fear of what you are losing. It is during these times your ability to get re-grounded with the now, focus on what is versus what is not, and hang on to your belief in yourself that will help you bring clarity to the chaos.
The quicker you grab hold of who you are becoming and the potential to come out the other side even more than you are right now, the sooner you will be able to love life in the moment.
What you lose during change is a construct of self. Your circumstances may have defined you, and they changed. Your relationships might bring you purpose, and they shift. Your belief in what is true might be challenged and crumble. It is in these moments that you choose your perspective and your response.
The miracle in this life is you and your capacity to choose. Let the change define you or let the change bring out who you are.
,”… we have the opportunity to make a critical decision… to transform or not.’ Khaleesi, “Game of Thrones”
This is a practice of conscious choice and embracing the miracle that is your life. Take control, accept responsibility, and be aware that your perspective, response, and results belong to you alone. You know it’s time for even more.
If not now, when?
You don’t have to go there alone.
