I've been on a self discovery journey. A journey of life coach licensing, and being enough now. There is so much that we project into the world, expectations, blame, responsibility....we bring in the stress of not achieving our dreams, not liking this or that, not being our true selves, judging. Not to mention all the "shoulds" we throw on the fire. We could "should" ourselves to death and most of the time we will. Let's stop to appreciate the things we enjoy, the miracles we see, the beauty around us. If we can do that, if we can appreciate, we can see a better reflection of ourselves in the world around us and know that we can fill our lives with the things that matter. And be our true selves, a being of light. Do you ever wonder why things are happening the way they are in your life? Think about something right now that you struggle with.... Can you look at this struggle as something perfect in your life? Most of us will say, no. Think of this...you are created from spirit and thus you are light (energy, vibration). Can you think of yourself as a light? Close your eyes and picture it, any light you like...candle, light house, I like Christmas tree lights! You are the light. Now, how do you know you are the light in your image you've just created? Are you there in broad daylight? Sun shining? How can you experience your light surrounded by light? Only in darkness can you experience your light! Surrounded in darkness you learn to know who you really are! So in awareness of your light, and the darkness, let us call upon appreciation. Your job here is to appreciate every condition and circumstance in life no matter how imperfect you imagine it to be. Contrast allows your light to shine! Wherever you are in your life experience, be what you are, be the light! That is enough!
