SBP Message of the Day Pick your own pace in life!
In my morning meditations I was pondering how I determine the pace and priorities of my life. I have established a rhythm that works for me, and ultimately, for my family (including the furbabies!), too. I have a busy lifestyle, with a bustling social life, am in a relationship with a man that I love and adore, have kinder that I have had the joy of witnessing the transformation from children to successful adults, and feel better in my 50's than I did in my 30's. I have gone through passages of grief, and the message that came through for me was "Reside in Love."
My entire practice comes down to those three little words.
I am committed to my husband, my career, I am committed to my family out of love rather than obligation and making and manifesting my goals each day. I make a list and by the end of that day, all has been accomplished. They are all items of my choosing, I am not forced to make any decisions. That is the lesson from my past.
I embrace who I am, faults, wrinkles, quirks, and all. Most importantly, speak my truth and come from a place of authenticity. I have set the pace of my life and am guided by Divine Flow.
There are times to rest and restore, and others where I feel like the tigress, fearlessly manifesting my dreams, hopes, and goals.
I live a life filled to the brim with passion and purpose. I have absolute certainty why I am here now.
I have learned to not only to forgive others, but to also forgive myself.
When I feel myself getting restless, I offer gratitude: Thank you for a beautiful home, healthy and happy children, loving and loyal friends, a family that makes me happy AND drives me crazy at times, for my husband where there is a mutual love and respect, for healthy animals, for sunshine, and for my connection to the Divine.
This exercise snaps me out of feeling down, and keeps me from going into a full-blown pity party!
I see the beauty in everyone that I meet, and feel honored when they share their back story with me. I seize every opportunity to grow. I have differentiated my core belief system from that of my family, to what I know, feel, understand, and believe.
It has taken me awhile to get to this place of understanding. It feels like a new beginning to me each day, for I know that today will bring new lessons, and growth that I had not anticipated, but will appreciate.
I will not retain anger for it tears me down, and limits the objective compassion and empathy that I feel for others.
I embrace my humanity and I respect and appreciate yours.
I do not bow to fate for I know that the choices I have made have lead me to this point in my life.
Dear Ones, please remember that you determine the races that you will run. Reside in love, and live with passion and purpose.
I love you and I believe in you.
Thank you for making SBP part of your day. You are respected and appreciated. Please feel free to share this with anyone in need of hope, healing, and encouragement.
In Divine Love,
