Balance

Balance

Balance1

 

I understand that in order to give OF myself, I must give TO myself. I don’t apologize for taking the time I need to care for myself. I choose to do things that inspire me and that bring joy into my life. It is from there that great things beyond my imagination are possible. Balance opens opportunity. Balance creates strength. Balance provides the foundation for moving forward with confidence.

???????????????????????????????

Love radiates brilliantly in my life. I glow with the flame that burns within in, sparked by the deep love that fills my life. From before I was even conceived I have been blessed by deep and unwavering love, and my aim is to reflect it back into the world. My family, my friends, and the abundant opportunities in my life provide the foundation from which I am able to shine.

The world is an awesome place of beauty and light. I seek and find joy, drawing on a sense of curiosity and leaning in to the mystery of life. From that place of aliveness in myself, I seek and find light and goodness abounds.

I am a brilliant shining light because I live and act from a place of love. I believe in the goodness in myself – that enables me to see the goodness and light in others. I honor my talents and strengths – and all the things that make me uniquely me. I share who I am in ways that are intentional and make the world a more meaningful and alive place to be.

BE

BE

???????????????????????????????

I pause to just BE. I breathe in life; I breathe out all that needs to die. I breathe in joy; I breathe out disappointment. I breathe in peace; I breathe out discord. I reach for harmony, grace, and love and fill myself with it. I open to the life that is in me and invite my light to shine into the world.

Health

 ???????????????????????????????

I am healthy. I honor my body with exercise and nutritious food. I honor my mind, thinking and giving it meaningful challenges. I honor my soul, slowing a little each day to appreciate the abundance and beauty in my life. I recognize that I am imperfect and forgive myself when I stray some from my healthy goals, confident that my next choice will be in greater alignment with what I want for my body, mind, and soul.

Alignment

Alignment

I am sensitive to where I feel discomfort, unease, or some sense of dissonance. I look for what is out of alignment and take action to create a greater alliance between my beliefs and my actions. I honor integrity and clear principles, and move in the direction of harmony with who I am and what I want to create in the world.

When we are aligned with love, the stars align with us. ~Marianne Williamson

Curiosity

Curiosity

Curiosityimage

I invite child-like wonder into my life. I ask questions to dig deeper and explore – why, how, where, when, what… By going slowly enough to take in what’s happening around me, my curiosity is awakened and I am supported in constant movement toward possibility. I seek to stretch and learn and grow. I allow my discovery to be fun and energizing and to embrace a sense of play in what I do.

Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun. ~George Scialabba

Relationship

My life is abundantly delicious because of all the people who touch it. Nothing matters more than my relationships, with my husband, my family, my friends, my colleagues – even with strangers that I may never see again. There is something exquisite about the web of life and the way that we are connected, now not just with those who are nearby but with people on the other side of the world. I pay attention to the difference I can make and the impact I have when I truly show up. I consciously choose how I engage, sensitive to what is being created, in all its subtlety and power.

Hope

Hope

hopeimage

Hope lives inside of me. I get up each day looking toward new possibilities. Not to be ‘be good’ or ‘do better’ but to surrender to the amazing person I am and what I might create with a deep appreciation of all that is abundant in me. I take small movements toward my dreams and with each little step find open doors and opportunities. I believe in the power of perspective and positive outlook. I choose to live into today with hope in my heart.
