How to Shine in Your Life
How to Shine in life? When do you feel like you are shining??? When someone tells you that your outfit is nice, When you complete a task to the best of your ability and receive great praise for the work put in. When you receive a pay check for a job you just completed, or win at a competition you took part in.
We all shine at different moments and shine for different reasons. One person's shine might not be another, but it does not mean it is any less rewarding for that person. Wake up and mean business in whatever you are doing, to get the results you desire. It is a feeling you need to go out there and get, but when you get it... What a feeling!!!!
The Power of Habits
Without me realizing it, I had been caught up in habitual ways of thinking and feeling that dominated my everyday life. My mind went on endlessly with judgements, expectations, worries, resentments, and stories about what should and shouldn’t happen.
And I had overlooked the feelings of fear and uneasiness that were running beneath the surface almost nonstop.
Life was happening, but with a constant inner commentary about how things weren’t quite right. No wonder I wasn’t happy.
Fast forward to now, and things are very different. No more useless worrying, regret, or getting caught in mental stories about other people or myself. Even my body has relaxed without that lurking agitation. Everything is so open, so fresh!
And here’s what I discovered.
When you get out of the way, you stop resisting life. The focus shifts from what you don’t have to what is here and available. No longer doubting everything, you receive what life offers you.
And rather than living in the mind-created past or future, you are available to the simplicity of this now moment.
Unclouded by mental noise, you become crystal clear about what to do next. You tell the truth about what is and isn’t working. And you take practical steps to begin truly living.
As I became aware of habits that were hijacking my happiness, I discovered why my relationships weren’t lasting and began making different choices. I realized how fear had been keeping me from living fully. I began seeing everything through the eyes of love.
Really, it’s true. When you get out of the way, your life will shine…endlessly.
