You are what you say

So, here I am. Awake. Aware. So many things that were out of focus have finally become clear. I’ve found my voice, and I’m not afraid to use it. As a result, things are falling into place in my life. All is not perfect, but life makes sense now. I am no longer a victim of circumstances waiting for my good to be given to me. I feel powerful – in the sense that my happiness now belongs to me and not to the world.

New found girl power aside, outside influences and old habits still threaten to barge in and crash my peace party. It's my choice to decide what influences I will listen to and what energy I will feed. My choice. My emotions. My reactions. My responsibility.
No matter where I go, there I am.
You see, there's this woman that I spend most of my time with and no matter where I go or what I do, she comes with me and she talks to me. That woman is me. So, it's up to me to set the tone for our conversations and keep myself engaged with uplifting ideas to fuel my decisions and actions.

I’ve listed here some of the affirmations I use to counter negative feelings when they come up. I post affirmations EVERYWHERE. They replenish me when my positive energy is running low. You should try it.

Everyone benefits from diversity of opinion. The world would be a painfully boring place if we all had the same thoughts and opinions. There’s no need to get defensive when someone disagrees with you. People have a right to express how they feel. You don’t have to take their ideas on as your own, and you don’t need validation from anyone. Learn to listen. I mean really listen, not just be quiet while you think about what you will say next to prove that you are right!
Don’t compare your life to others. Thou shall not sweat your neighbor. You have no idea what their journey is about. I don't know what keeps you up at night, but everyone has something. The joy is in the ride, my friend. It takes courage to trust where you are and find value in your own personal experience. Every human being draws the situations and people into their lives that they need to find understanding and awareness. Difficulties are opportunities, so don't think you are being punished if things aren't going your way.
Practice confidence and faith and your fears and insecurities will have no power over you. Living in fear creates more of the situations that we fear. I used to think it was just me, but I’m learning that many of us are afraid of the very things we say we want! Success, money, responsibility, relationships. We think we’ll screw it all up! Don't let your mind play tricks on you. Find the courage to ask the questions, say what you need to say, do what you need to do and don't worry about the outcome. It works.
The Kingdom of God is within you. There’s no need to look outside of yourself for a miracle to transform your life. What you seek you already are. Instead of lamenting what you think you don’t have, take what you are and what you have and make it work for you. Believe that you have divine inner vision and strength to create the life you want. When we sell ourselves short through self-destructive thoughts and behavior, we are in effect blocking our own inherent magic.
The only effective way to change someone else is to change yourself. This is a game-changer folks! There's nothing wrong with improving yourself to get what you want out of life. Sometimes we think we are selling out if we change. I say that's hogwash. You owe it to yourself to take a step back, look at yourself and make adjustments that will improve your effectiveness as a human being. By nature, I'm non-confrontational, but I've learned that if I want to be heard and respected, I better speak up make it known that my voice matters. You got a problem with that?
Whatever I need always comes my way. No matter what seems to be going on, learn to trust that life is always leading you towards your greatest good. If you are doing everything in your power to make something happen and it's still not working out for you, perhaps that is exactly what you need. Maybe getting that job, perfect as it seems, would hinder your ability to learn something about yourself. Maybe a miracle solution to your financial solutions sounds like a dream come true, but it could deprive you of a healing that will lead you to a more fulfilling life.
Think about what you say to yourself and learn to direct your thinking. Speak love and prosperity into your life, and don’t give fear and worry the time of day.
The following books will help you infuse yourself with positive energy and direct your thoughts towards peace and happiness. Now go forth and be lovely. I see you.
