The feeling associated with gratitude is the most sustainable high that one can achieve naturally. True thanksgiving allows your focus to shift from what isn’t right to blessings. With an attitude of gratitude, all things are possible.
If God couldn’t love you more than God does right now, than why not love yourself unconditionally? Why not love yourself despite the fact that you are not perfect. Love yourself as your make each and every mistake and grow from them. Love yourself regardless of the situation because at the end of the day, you are enough. You are more than enough. You will always be enough.
Life is about moments. As you live in the present moment, take time to really be present and experience the best that life has to offer. Capture the best moments, whether it be with a camera, a journal or in your mind. Stack the best moments in your memory and call on them when needed.
Hopes, dreams and aspirations are just as important as completing day to day tasks. Allow yourself to feel the joy and excitement that comes from exploring your hearts deepest desires. Allow your dreams to show up in your life in cool and unexpected ways that you never could have imagined. Stay in that space. Get lost in that space. Live your life from that space.
Sometimes, I can be a bit too much in my head. I think constantly. Meditation and breath work have been really awesome ways for me to re-center myself.
Take some time to practice taking slow deep breaths from your heart. Focus on something funny, a relaxing image or an enjoyable memory. As slowly as you can, fill your lungs until there is not more room for air. When you exhale, let out a nice ahhh sound. It does wonders for the spirit.
Do not lower your dreams and aspirations to match your current reality. Upgrade your vision to match your expectations.
Our bodies and minds are amazing in ways that we’ve never imagined. Be bold. Test yourself. Learn just how amazing you are. Whatever is planted in your soul as a desire, you can achieve. But, you will never know your limits until you test them. Actualize your potential.
“Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you’re going to be right.”
