Everything effects everything

In case anyone out there is wondering how I came to have such a positive outlook on life, I would like to say it didn’t come easy. I suffered from depression all my life. I tried the whole med/therapy thing and NOTHING had a lasting effect. But I got tired of being tired. So I stopped.

I stopped thinking negative thoughts.

I stopped saying negative things. 

I stopped having expectations. 

I started having faith that EVERYTHING WILL WORK OUT. Because it ALWAYS does. If things didn’t work out, I would be dead. So if things always work out, why do I keep doubting that they won’t? 

I started seeing the positive in EVERYTHING. I started accepting everyone and everything for what they were. Accepting does not mean you are saying something is ok, it means you are giving up your expectations and the desire to control everything. Just because you accept something also does not mean you have to keep it around. Accept it for what it is and if it does not positively impact your life. Move on. 

You know the saying “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it” – turns out that’s a good one! If what you are about to say (or type or txt) will not positively impact yourself or someone else, let that thought go just as quickly as it came.

Everything effects everything. So make sure that everything you do and say only has a positive effect on everything else.

The secret to being happy is love. The more you love others and create happiness is them, the more happiness you will find in yourself. 

I love you for you. Now let’s start being the amazing and beautiful souls we were meant to be. 

You create your reality

“Your reality is a reflection of what you believe you deserve.”

Hell ya it is. You can be anyone you want to be and you can have anything you want to have.

“It is not enough to know what you want, you must also know why you want it, and what you will do once you have it! All those elements impact the world around you and therefore must be considered.” ~ Kathleen McGowan

“Consciously or subconsciously, we hold ourselves to account. You cannot manifest something that is not in the best interest of the world around you. That would not be honoring your place as a member of the human family. God’s family. Yes, we may ask, but we receive as a reward for living in harmony.” Shared from Inspiring Quote Of The Day

The “not so secret” Secret

I’ve been absent in my writing lately. Mostly because we’ve had so much going on. Moving to Hawaii to chase your dreams, is all fine, beautiful, amazing and dandy. But it sure is exhausting! Needless to say, it’s been a growing experience to say the least. Anyway, since I haven’t been around to write lately, I wanted to share a fellow blogger’s post. It is beautifully written! I mean, come on guys, this stuff just makes sense. Life is short. You’ve gotta do what you love. Be happy. Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s only cliche because year after year people have been saying the same things over and over. WAKE UP AND LISTEN! The answers are right in front of you. It’s like the everyone is wearing drunk goggles. If we all just calmed the waters and paid attention, the truth, the way and light to true happiness are glaringly obvious.

The Better Man Project ™

It’s not about catching up with the world, it’s about creating a life full of love and passion and having the world catch up with you. The times of having to mold ourselves into someone or something we aren’t are long gone – in fact, this may be one of the greatest lies of humanity. The belief that you have to fit in to lead a worthwhile life is a facade that shades your eyes from the truth. In many cases, it may feel that you have to be the cool person in order to gain the respect and appreciation of others, but let me tell you from personal experience – if you go out into the world, declare your purpose, and do something really ridiculously cool with your life, people will take notice and give you real respect. Respect for doing what you love and bring new ideas into…

Back to life, back to reality

For everyone who went to their “paradise” for Memorial Day weekend and who is now heading “back to reality” – I ask, why? If you would rather live in paradise than where you currently waste away your existence in a daily grind of traffic and 9-5’s – why not make the change?? Make paradise your new reality. (Here’s a secret – society says its not possible, but it is…)

Focus. And most of all BELIEVE

Focus on what you want, not how you’ll attract it.

Do you want to win the lottery? No, you want the money that comes with winning the lottery.

Do you want money? No, you want the things that money can buy.

And even then, is that really what you want? Or do you want happiness and you think money is what will make you happy?

“Declare what you really want, appreciate what you already have, be looking for opportunities, and take action when you see them. That’s where miracles begin.” – Joe Vitale

Have a little faith

I’ve been absent for a few days because life has just been one chaotic mess. If you don’t know, my husband and I are selling all of our things, leaving our jobs, friends and the city of Austin that we love dearly, to move to Hawaii to open a Krav Maga/CrossFit studio. Long story short  – Krav Maga and CrossFit are our passion and we can’t wait to change the world through through fitness and self-defense! www.alohakravmaga.com

ANYWAY….

I have been absent because moving to an island in the middle of no where, trying to get a loan to start a business and figuring out how to ship our FIVE dogs over there, along with working my full time job still, has been very time consuming. And to top all of that – the Universe has been pushing me to my limits. Not a single thing has gone right in the last week. Nothing can just work the way its supposed to, it seems like everyone I interact with is incompetent in their jobs or someone didn’t pay attention to details, which leaves me completely screwed.

Needless to say, I am exhausted and have broken down many times over the last few days – all the while questioning why the universe has to make everything so freaking difficult! Why can’t anything work the way I want it to.

When I take a moment to step back and look at how things are working out –  I realize that the power of the mind really does work, I am still achieving what I have put out to the Universe, just not the way I thought I would.

The only time we are dissapointed in someone or something is when they do not meet our expectations.

If we accept people for who they are, and not who we want them to be, we would not have to go through the initial phase of dissapointment, only to later find out – they were perfect just the way they are – if we could have only accepted them that way in the first place.

And another thing…

Everything really does happen for a reason. Think back to a time something went wrong and you wondered, why you?

My boyfriend cheated on me two years ago, I was devastated. How could anyone treat someone that way?? But it also happened to be the first time I was single since I was 13 and I also just happened to be going on a cruise the following week. The same cruise that I met my husband on….

My point is, I have wasted a lot of energy being upset with the Universe this week (and this life), just to find out that it is working with me, not against me.

Keep your eyes on the prize, do everything with good intentions and hold tight to your faith, the Universe is listening…

Love Begets Love: Happy Global Love Day!

Today’s quote is by Harold W. Becker:

“In loving ourselves, we allow the feeling to generate within us and then we can share it to everyone and everything around us! That which we send out, returns to us in greater measure.”

Allow yourself to be loved today, simply by loving someone else.

After all, it is The 10th Annual Global Love Day!

I call bs on the Universe

So if you have read any of my other posts, you would realized that I typically write positive and motivational blogs. I believe in the law of attraction and the power of positive thought. I think we all have complete control of our destiny and I believe in a higher being.

But today I call bullshit on the Universe. Life in general is exhausting- being happy all the time is even more exhausting! Always searching for the positive despite the circumstances, always shoving aside the stress, frustration and anger to make room for the happiness, positive thoughts and smiles – that all takes soooo much energy all of the time.

Then when you have one of the those days when nothing seems to be going your way and things go from bad to worse (because your thoughts turn negative and you begin to draw more negative energy towards you) those days, when you are really searching for the positive energy, so you can turn your day around.

Or you have a series of those days. Or the Universe decides you need a lesson in patience and none of your positive thoughts, workings or energies seem to be accomplishing anything.

Well I have had a few of those days lately, so I call bullshit on the Universe. I am tired. I don’t feel like mustering up the energy to be happy. I don’t feel like finding the energy to pretend everything hasn’t been chaotic in life. I don’t have any desire to ignore the little things and move on. I’m out of energy, none left to apply. None left to try.

Am I still aware of the fact that I have a lot to be thankful for? Yes. Am I still aware that things could always be worse? Yes.

But you know what, today I want to be tired. Today I want to let out that anger because I don’t have the energy to find the energy to be happy.

And thats ok. It’s ok to call bullshit on the Universe sometimes.

Because hopefully I can try again tomorrow.

Do you allow fear to control you?

I spoke with a very good friend of mine yesterday. She’s young and in her 20s, in a miserable relationship and working 3 jobs. She’s been living like this for over 2 years – I just don’t get it. I try to plead with her to stop living such an unpleasant life but she is consumed with fear that she can’t financially support herself if she moves out. She fears instability if she stops working every hour of everyday like she is now.

If nothing else, I want to instill in each and every person I meet that you have to have faith. Faith that the Universe, that God, whatever you want to call WILL ABSOLUTELY, 100% take care of you. Visualize where you want to be, believe that you can get there and take the leap. STOP STOP STOP wasting your life away – you only have a short time to learn, live and love. Don’t waste it away working a job you don’t enjoy and then going home to a toxic environment. Each and everyone of you can and should be surrounded by only happiness, joy and love.

I literally fell asleep with a smile on my face and woke up with one this morning because I have chosen a life where I am constantly surrounded only by people and animals who love me unconditionally. “But not everyone can find that kind of love” you say? I call bullshit. I’m not “lucky” I sent and still send out that love everyday and the universe has returned that energy to me.

If you want happiness- be happy.
If you want to be loved – love.

It really is that simple, all you have to do is believe….
