Expectations vs Acceptance

“The reality is that tomorrow is most certainly uncertain and no matter how many expectations we form, tomorrow will come, tomorrow will go and it will all be what it will be.” ~Lori Deschene

Our only true disappointments come when something does not meet our expectations. If you accept everyone and everything for it’s true-self, all that is left is love.

Going with the flow of life

“When you catch yourself slipping into a pool of negativity, notice how it derives from nothing other than resistance to the current situation.”
– Donna Quesada

Accept everything as it is. Know that everything is impermanent, good and bad. Each moment does not build on the previous moment but exists in and of itself and will whether you are stuck in the past or focused on the future. Enjoy each of those moments, they are gifts.

The Law of Attraction

I hear people complain every day, some days that’s all I hear, and I’m guilty of it too. But we’ve gotta stop telling the universe what we don’t want! The universe doesn’t know the difference between “I wish my life didn’t suck” and “my life sucks” all it hears is “my life sucks” and thanks to the laws of attraction – things will start to spin in motion to make your life suck.

What should you do instead? Think positive, act positive, speak positive! It’s just like when you’re sad, if you force yourself to smile – even if you don’t feel like it, eventually you’ll find yourself smiling naturally and unforced. Not only that, but you’ll find happiness as well.

Think to yourself, “My life is amazing.” Say it out loud. Write it down. Over and over and over again. You might not really believe it at first – but with a little bit of time and consistency, one day you will wake up and say “wow, my life really is amazing”

Did you know that thoughts can be scientifically recorded? That means that thoughts are real. Just as real as anything else. And everything is made of energy, so your thoughts are energy. When you think something you are emitting that energy out into the universe. And via the law of attraction, that energy will then attract similar energy. What kind of energy do you want to be surrounded with? Because its completely up to you. The world really is your oyster.

“The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from pure energy, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy” – Wikipedia

You are going to die tomorrow

You are going to die tomorrow. You will never see your family again, but they will continue to celebrate holidays together after you are gone. You will never hang out with your friends again, they will find new friends after you are gone. You will never get to play catch with your dog again, but hopefully someone else will.

The outfit you bought at the mall yesterday will never be worn again and your savings account never be spent – at least not by you. The car you drive will stay where you last parked it, until someone else gets to use it to get from point A to point B.

The fight you had with your girlfriend yesterday will not ever be mended. You will never get to prove that you were right. Not that it matters. Because you will be dead. Your ego will be gone. You will have nothing left to prove. In fact, you will have nothing left. But the world will go on, traffic will still be there on Monday morning. Food will still be cooked and eaten. Everyone will still be going out on Friday night. But you won’t be.

But if you did it right, your memories will live on. People will remember your smile, and your positive attitude. Hopefully. Or will they remember your grumpiness? They’ll remember all the things you did for others. Or will they remember your selfishness? Others will continue to live a long and happy life because you took a moment to care and to make a difference. Or not.

Tomorrow You, as the world knows You, will cease to exist and all that will be left is your energy. It will spread with the wind until it clings to and becomes another life form. Will your energy pollute the world with hate and anger? Or will you bring smiles to everyone that feels you blow across their skin, as they are comforted by a random feeling of joy and love?

You are going to die tomorrow. What will you do today? How will you spend your last hours?

And if by chance you do not die tomorrow.

Make sure you read this again.
