Today is a great day to Make It Happen. Making It Happen is our daily work to accomplish the goals, tasks and dreams that we have for ourselves with the purpose of becoming the best version of ourselves.
Well, sometimes I just don’t feel like Making It Happen. Sometimes, being a super independent happily single-mom is not my ideal role. Sometimes I just want to sit in the passenger seat in the car of life, take my shoes off, recline my seat and fall asleep with my mouth wide open with an extreme comfort and trust in the driver. There are minutes, hours and sometimes days that I just don’t want to be responsible for everyone and everything in my life.
What I have come to learn is that even during these times, I am still Making It Happen. Sometimes, I need to allow myself to take the “S” off my chest, acknowledge that there are some things that not even a Superwoman can control all the time and that my feelings about not wanting to save the world everyday are valid. I have learned to allow myself this time to feel what I am feeling but honestly, I don’t allow myself to feel sorry for myself so that I don’t lose sight of the big picture.
The big picture is that Making It Happen is my daily work to be my best me. I am not my best me when I feel sorry for myself or my current circumstances. I am my best me when I follow my 5 steps back to my Big Picture. Those steps are to Acknowledge, Retreat, Pray, Release and Repeat:
In your times of not wanting to Make It Happen, what steps do you take to get back to your Big Picture? If you have taken your steps and you still aren’t there, today might be a good day to try new steps. But never ever give up or let anything keep you from your Big Picture and from being amazing on purpose.
Happy Throw It Out Thursday! When I moved into a smaller space a few months ago I made a decision to get rid of a lot of "stuff" that I was just holding onto just because it was mine and I was used to it. It was truly the best decision I could have made because I felt so light and free and it left me room for new stuff in my new space. Now months later, my new "stuff" is piling up and my new space isn't so great anymore. I'm not feeling so free anymore. Now I need to sift through this stuff and figure out what I really need, get rid of what I don't and I must admit that it's a little overwhelming.
When we think about the "stuff" of life we tend to carry (hurt, anger, self-doubt, repetitive negative action, negative people, etc), how does it make us feel when we keep piling it on? At what point are we going to take the time to sift through it all and get rid of what we don't need? And what work are we going to do to ensure we don't fill the new space with more "stuff" we don't need?
My Challenge for you today is to "Throw It Out"! Become comfortable with the open and free space that invites only positivity. If it doesn't add to your growth and work to be the best version of you, it can't come into your space. And lastly, do the work everyday to check your space and tidy up before it becomes overwhelming and out of control. Have a great day and be amazing on purpose!
Take some time today to reflect on why you have done the work to be your best you.
Happy Monday Roses! What happens when it’s time to Make It Happen and you feel like you have lost all of the tools you had to get it done? You don't feel like it, you are too tired, you are too frustrated and you've reached a point where you just feel like it isn't going to happen. What do you do? How do you get out of your own way to get it done and to Make It Happen? Here are a few tips I use when I need to refocus and get unstuck:
Embracing my purpose to use my experiences to inspire and encourage others to live on purpose and to be successful without apology.
Amazing things happen when visualize your dreams and goals. A little over a year ago I (DaVita) did my first vision board and my life began to change drastically. Today my business partner, Joyce and I have the honor of showing others how to not only visualize their dreams and goals, but how to make clear action plans to make their dreams their realities. #VisionBoard2016#LivingOnPurposeAndWithoutLimits#HappyNewYear #DreamsGoalsVision
My goal is to take the time to focus on another "ROSE" in need and seek ways to bless, support and encourage her through her current challenges.
