You are more.

So, I’m a pretty big believer in the idea that thoughts are things.

So it’s no wonder that I feel like a failure in life when I *believe* the thought that “I should be better, richer, wealthier, more successful.”

And the honest truth is that I am already those things.

Those qualities are already within me:

I am rich – in love and compassion.

I am wealthy – in abundance of life and energy and health. I have shelter and food to sustain me.

I am successful – I’m growing. And isn’t that one of the main purposes in this life anyway?

Now, I may not have all the money I desire, and I may not be where I “think” I should be yet, but the truth is this: I am where I am now because I’m supposed to be here.

And I don’t have to know the reasons why.

I just have to show up in life. Like I know I’m able.

If my purpose really is to love and connect and inspire, I should be feeling like a success each and every day that I’m alive!

So as I sit here and take another deep breath I start to let go. Letting go of all the pressure I put on myself to be something “great” in the eyes of others. Letting go of defining who I am based on the number in my bank account.

Because ultimately we are all in this together. We are all seeking purpose. And drive. A reason for breathing.

So maybe the answer is to simply let go. To find compassion within. For not only others, but for ourselves as well. Because that’s what really matters in this lifetime.

On our death beds, we won’t remember everything, every moment. We’ll only remember the ones that truly meant something.

So my challenge to you is this:

#1: Decide on your purpose. It could be anything. You get to choose.

#2. Let go of the false expectations and beliefs you have for yourself.

#3. Give the gift of compassion. To others, and most importantly, yourself.

Life is too short to live it anxious, depressed, let down, disappointed, discouraged, scared, sad, and lonely.

It’s time to rise up and truly live!

And it all starts right here.

Right now.

With our thoughts. Our beliefs.


I love you. Thank you so much for reading! I hope this message inspires you to greatness.

Take care, and remember – you are more than your bank account. You are more than the things you own, and the stuff you buy.

You are you. So rock it out!

Go out now and live the best life you could ever imagine – the life of your dreams! (It is possible..) 😉

 

A continuous falling and picking yourself back up

Walking.

It seems so simple.

Once we’re adults, walking has pretty much become 2nd nature. (At least for me anyway.)

We can walk and do other activities, multi-tasking while walking.

Chewing bubble gum. Talking on our phones. Chatting with a friend.

Drinking tea. Holding a baby. Shopping. Eating.

We don’t take much time to think about just how simple, yet extraordinary the act of walking is.

Yet, there are many lessons to be learned from walking. After all, it is a continuous falling and picking yourself back up.

The truth is that we fall multiple times daily and we don’t even realize.

But we always manage to pick ourselves up, don’t we? It’s how we get ourselves from our current location to our destination. From point A to point B. From our now to our later.

It’s pretty fun to think of walking in that way. A continuous falling and getting back up. I feel like a super hero or something! Like my daily life is full of struggle, but I manage to get up. Keep going. Ending the day with a smile. (And a lap around the moon, or something. 🙂 )


The art of walking relates to life in so many ways.

We struggle. We’re overtaken with temptation. We get our hearts broken. We create our own pain and misery by allowing untrue & negative thoughts to make home in our minds. We get caught doing something we know we shouldn’t have.

But we’re strong. We don’t give up.

After all, giving up would just cause us more pain. Quitting causes us to become stagnant in life. To quit growing. To get rusty. Our physique softens. Our minds weaken. We’re not as sharp, not as quick.

So we get back up.

We pick ourselves up off of the floor. Wipe off the dirt. Shake the dust away.

And we become free.

Free to move, and run.

Free to soar above the earth and the trees, into the universe. Into the unknown.

Life then becomes more magical. More adventurous.

And that’s when we truly find ourselves.


But it all starts with the simple act of falling and getting back up. The simple act of walking.

When you go to walk today, gently remind yourself that today is a gift.

That today is magical.

And then find that magic. Find the magic in walking.

This is what true health is all about. To keep going. To keep motivation and inspiration at their all-time highs, so that we can make the most out of life.

So we can make a difference.

True health has no bounds. There are no rules.

Only guidelines.

And these guidelines are all personal. No 2 people are alike. What makes me feel great, may not be what makes you feel great.

There is no one-size-fits-all plan.

There is only you. And your body. And your mind. And your spirit. And your soul.

And YOU get to decide what feels right. What is the best for you.

You are the only one who answers to yourself, and what a beautiful thing!

So find what’s right for you. Help yourself. Get help and healing and inspiration from others who have been there before. Find your voice. And take note to what feels great, and what feels less than great.

Go now, my dear friend.

And find YOUR true health. ❤
