September 2011 = Back to School

2 Sep

September always feels like a new beginning to me. It’s like back to school for adults. A second chance to start the year anew. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of the rest of the year. Another opportunity to make the year mean something. There is still time to…..

Take risks, especially if they are scary.   
Discover your passion and pursue it.
Repair a damaged friendship.
Get organized.
Say you’re sorry and mean it.
Learn a language.
Volunteer at that organization.
Start eating healthy.
Start that exercise program.
Learn Yoga.

Everyday we wake up is another chance to “go back to school”. What are you going to do with your new start?

Make September mean something. Happy September.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne Williamson

If not now…when?

Kindness

6 Jul

Today practice and encourage kindness in all interactions and see how it feels. Kindness is always possible…even when you are not being treated with kindness…you can still behave kindly…always. It’s not always easy but it’s always possible. Try it.

Always bring your own light…

Feeling Freedom

2 Jul

I have learned that being free is not a matter of rights but more a matter of the limits that we put on ourselves. Frankly, no one has the ability to keep us from freedom and happiness more than ourselves….the person you see when you look in the mirror.

Sometimes it’s easy to give our freedom away by thinking that we don’t have it. But we do, we always do. Think about it.

We simply have to have the courage to reach beyond what is comfortable, natural and safe AND try something new, different and at times a little scary.

The times in my life when I have felt the most FREE are the times when I have reached just past scared and did it anyway. The feeling is absolutely frightening and yet exciting and completely free…
