GOOD MORNING MONDAY – AFFIRMATIVE THOUGHTS FOR A GREAT WEEK
Good Morning – it is Monday! Know that you are blessed; you have been given the gift of another day! What will you do with it?
“Feed Your Destiny; Not Your History”
Reflect for a minute on this quote. Where do you spend your time? Do you have a vision for your life with actions that propel you forward to realize your destiny/dream? Or, do you spend much of your time looking backward; reliving eras of time, moments, conversations that you cannot do anything about? Yes, it is important that you learn from your past; your victories, defeats and mistakes, but DO NOT Pitch a Tent and Camp Out There!! If you are spending time looking backward; ask yourself, “Why am I doing this? When Alice asked the Cheshire Cat, “which road do I take?” The cat asked, “Where do you want to go?” Alice answered, “I don’t know.” “Then,” said the cat, “it really doesn’t matter, does it?”
Do you have a dream? Do you know where you want to go? The foundation for true authenticity is ensuring you are true to your nature and pursuing the life you want to live. At times this can be hard because you may have conformed so long that you have lost your way. I say, “SNAP OUT OF IT!” Do Not put your dreams on the back-burner. You only have this moment. You are not guaranteed any more. There is no time to waste. Do the work you need to do to determine who you are, what you want and where you want to go; then, muster up the strength and courage to ease on down that road. It may not be easy and there will be challenges along the way; but life doles out challenges no matter if you are chasing your destiny or not. So, you might as well face any challenges you are going to encounter on the path to fulfilling your destiny moments, right 😊?
If you have a vision for your future and you are following it, keep it up! If you have a vision but are not following it; take a step toward your vision by engaging in destiny moments each day. If you are a bit like Alice and not sure where you are going, then maybe start today by exploring. Think about what brings you joy, what gives you energy, what childhood dream did you have that still holds a place in your heart, etc. Reflect, write, contemplate and then begin to craft a vision for your future; so that you can actively “feed your destiny”.
Do not look backward; you are not going that way. Challenge yourself to move forward. Know that if you have a dream in your heart; you are equipped and fully loaded to realize that dream; because that dream would not be so poignant for you if it was not something you were meant to achieve.
You are equipped. You are talented. You are creative. You are strong. You are an Original Masterpiece. You were meant to realize your destiny. Do not compare yourself to anyone else. RUN YOUR RACE!
Have a GREAT Day; Have a GREAT week!
