This really struck me today. Everything isn't beautiful, but perhaps the ugly is used to help us in the seasons of life that are difficult. Everything has a purpose. We just don't see or understand it in the moment. We need to let go of what we're desperately clutching. Trust that everything is going to be ok....because it is. Emerge Positive
It's all too easy to live on "automatic pilot". We ride the inner tube down the river of life, never realizing that the water is shallow and we can stand up and go in another direction whenever we want. You have that power. How you think, speak and act today is creating your tomorrow. Let that sink in. So what will you create today? What spark can you ignite that will bring you closer to the life you want? Own your destiny. Emerge Positive
Clematis urophylla 'Winter Beauty' - The wax-like, creamy-white sepals, which surround a prominent boss of cream anthers, emerge from pale green buds and become paler, and more flared at their tips as they mature. These small, nodding, urn-shaped flowers contrast well with the rich green foliage.
Don't give away your power and let other people define you or your value. In all circumstances, you must remember who you are. And at the end of the day, what you think and believe of yourself, is who you are. Your thought creates your identity. Let me share something with you to ponder...you are here for a purpose. You have amazing talents and gifts. And you are meant to share them in a way that helps others. Go put that into action. Stop worrying about what others think and let your…
Before you can truly love someone, you must love yourself. And you really can't do that until you know who you are. So if you are going to dedicate your time to something, dedicate it to this cause. It is the single most important thing you can do for yourself and everyone around you. When you love who you are, it shows. And it gives people around you permission to be true to themselves...and it's contagious. Be the catalyst. Emerge Positive
It's already mid-July....have you done any Summer fun activities yet? How about getting an ice cream cone? Personally, I'm really trying to focus my attention on the present moment and enjoy each day of summer. It's amazing how it can fly right by you if you don't. So today, get outside and enjoy the day. Do something fun! And get your sparkle on! Emerge Positive
I have a bad habit of looking at my past to measure my success....especially when it comes to weight/body health. Youth is so appealing and I think it's normal to expect to look and be like we used to be. But your past should not be your measurement. You must create a new goal...one that is in alignment with who you are now. Measuring your life on your past is just as toxic as measuring yourself to others. Know who you are right now and be her/him. Emerge Positive
Sometimes life unfolds in a way that is not part of our plan. In fact, it can be down right challenging and push us to our max. But everything in life has a purpose. And every circumstance is something to learn from. When we resist what life has presented, we miss the learning and growth. You may not like what surrounds you today, but resisting it isn't going to catapult you forward. Instead, sit with it with a knowing that 'this too shall pass'. Emerge Positive
