Be still

img_20160926_160143-2I enjoyed a fabulous workshop with well-know author and life coach Martha Beck yesterday at Kripalu in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. She was warm,  entertaining and well-versed in all things life-awakening. What a wonderful way to spend a Autumn Monday.

I have been wanting to go to Kripalu for more than a decade and hearing Beck in person was a dream come true – Wishful Thinking Works!

We talked a lot about be-wilder-ment.  Her recommendation – be wilder! I’m in!!! How about you?

Oddly enough, she advises stillness as the path to be-wilder-ment.  Start by being still and let your real self lead you from there. Anything can happen. I know first hand – listening to my true self led me halfway around the world and back again and again!

Get started today with 15 minutes to yourself, meditating or simply relaxing into being you and being more aware of your breathing, your body and the space you occupy. Sitting alone with yourself can feel odd at first, but persevere and the rewards are great.

The physical changes to your brain are real and well-researched. The more often you meditate the greater the benefits; long range mediators’ brains actually grow in the areas that control happiness. In addition, over time you will feel yourself responding more positively and calmly to situations that once caused you anxiety or stress. The warm and cozy feeling it gives me and the lightness of spirit it creates, are enough to keep me coming back for more.

Don’t make excuses, be still, and get started on the life you really want!

Eat, Pray, Love – 10 year anniversary

I posted this week about  about making your life story the one you want it to be without realizing this week was the 10th anniversary of “Eat, Pray, Love” the best seller which helped many people rewrite their life stories.

Eat PRay Love Made me do it

I didn’t read “Eat, Pray, Love” until I was on my own journey of a lifetime, but for many folks it redefined their lives. Gilbert has captured the stories of some of her readers whose lives were changed by reading “Eat, Pray, Love” in her latest book, “Eat, Pray, Love Made Me Do it.”  Gilbert explained on her recent interview on Good Morning America  that the central theme of both books is “. . . my life  doesn’t have to look like this anymore. . . We can make a change; we do not have to be stuck.” Yes! That is what Wishful Thinking Works is all about – creating the life you really want.

“Here, in this candid and captivating collection, nearly fifty of those readers—people as diverse in their experiences as they are in age and background—share their stories. The journeys they recount are transformative—sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, but always deeply inspiring.”

I plan to read her new book as I am traveling in May and June – I think that will be the perfect time to enjoy it. I’m looking forward to it because I love learning how other folks changed their lives.

Did “Eat, Pray, Love”  change your life in anyway?  Did you love the book; hate it? Tell us your thoughts. We learn from each other!

Your life story . . .

Life story

Your life grows in direct proportion to how much and how often you let your fears direct it. Recognizing and examining your fears is a good thing, letting them control your every move and your emotions is not.

Take time to figure out who you are, what you want and how you want to be remembered, and then honor those insights with attention and action. Let that knowledge direct your actions, not your fears.

And, that is how you create the life you really want.

Enjoy!

Celebrate Independence Day with your personal “Ta Da” list!

This is the third year I’ve posted about this timely topic; I love creating blog traditions!  Normally, I post on July 1, but I missed doing so this year. You see, July 1 was the 182nd day of 2014, which is the halfway point! 

Why am I bringing this up now? So you can begin celebrating your 2014 triumphs to date, of course!

What have you accomplished this year that just six months ago seemed impossible or a distant possibility?

What new trails have you blazed?

What promises have you kept?

What chances did you take?

What teeny, tiny or wondrously huge steps have you taken in the direction of your dreams?

I think that since folks are celebrating with parties, picnics and pyrotechnics for the Fourth of July, it’s a fantastic time to combine our patriotic triumphs with our personal ones – and celebrate them all!

Don’t be shy, this is the season for aiming high and lighting up the sky. If you aren’t ready to shout to the world what you’ve accomplished, no problem, let those bright lights and loud booms ignite a sense of personal pride for you this year.

Start planning now to make this Fourth of July your personal Independence Day. Light-up your life by counting your successes. Most of us spend way more time thinking about what we haven’t done, than what we have done. It’s time to change all that and make 2014 your year of the have’s not the have not’s! Celebrating success builds confidence, which moves us forward faster and makes us happier along the way!

List everything you have accomplished, big and small, and then, when you are watching “the rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air” congratulate yourself on your 2014 accomplishments thus far, and all the exciting ones that lay ahead.

To get started, click here for your free Wishful Thinking Works downloadable “Ta Da” List. A “Ta Da” List is much more fun than a “To Do” List, because it’s for all the wonderful things you’ve already accomplished!  Don’t forget to share with family and friends so they can begin celebrating, too.

Have fun, and here’s to a perfectly positive Independence Day in 2014!
