Life In December

By: Jay

The end of the year is upon us.

For many it consists of sending holiday cards and gifts, weaving through crowded parking lots hoping and praying that a parking space opens up near the store or mall entrance.  Some are getting all the food and ingredients for holiday festivities and family gatherings.  Some of us are traveling to see family and/or friends for the holiday(s).  Some are staying home and having a quiet celebration.  We are all busy one way or another.

Over the past year we have all had challenges in some area of our life, i.e. health, financial, work, etc.

As we move through this “uniqueness” and range of emotions we focus on moving forward and setting goals for the rest of the year and the New Year.  It is important for us not to get so caught up in the problem that we are unable to see the forest for the trees.  The more we focus on the not so wonderful situations the more prevalent and intense they become.

Thus, the reason for this article.  No matter what comes down the pike it is how we decide to handle said situation.  We can either react or act.  The choice we make is important.  By reacting we are allowing the situation to control us; by acting we are taking control of the situation.  This is not to say we aren’t experiencing a slight panic or full range of emotions, it means we are deciding not to allow our emotional state to dictate the goings on.

So, on your Holiday To Do List take a bit of time for yourself and think of the goals you want to set, breathe, relax a bit, get focused and move forward with a song on your lips and in your heart.

Celebrate the beauty of life that is within you and let that glorious light of yours shine to the world and behold the miracle of you.

Let your light so shine…

Pax Domini,

“There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands.”

Gold Bars

Today’s Positive Thought is by Joseph Murphy.

“Your thoughts, mental imagery, beliefs, attitudes, and feelings are investments which you deposit in your subconscious mind.  Your subconscious gives compound interest, i.e., it magnifies whatever you deposit.  Impress your subconscious with love, faith, confidence, right action, guidance, abundance, security, and good humor, and whenever you need love, confidence, or an answer to a problem, your subconscious will supply you.  This is the way to dig treasures out of the gold mine within you.”

“Your life is not a problem to be solved but a gift to be opened.

The Now

   How often do we ever think about living in the moment, the now?

It seems we tend to view the past or skip to the future but overlook the present moment in which we are living and breathing, perhaps not even aware of this present moment in time.

It is in this present moment that we can take action to create a better future moment to enjoy.

Do we allow the past moments to influence our future, of course we do.  Until we take the time to cease letting the past repeat itself in the future we exist in a vicious circle of history repeating itself and the future moment relived with all the angst of the past and perhaps more.  But the angst relived is always in the present which is the future we had set up in the past present moment of a moment ago.

Life is an awareness of self, of our power, talent, and ability to express It in all It’s great good in the here and now.

We can let past melancholia seep into the future present moment of time or we allow ourselves to take control of our thoughts, beliefs and concepts to initiate a more wonderful future present moment.  Life is how we direct it to be.  Life takes the form of what we deeply believe it is and what we believe we are and worthy of in living our life.

It is the simplicity of living that can be the hardest to achieve with all the fears and blocks we have set up for ourselves to better living.  Do we all have our challenges to overcome?  Yes, each and every one of us.

As we go forward let us not put ourselves down because “I am not…,” but build ourselves up because “I am…”     

Each and every obstacle, challenge, problem that comes our way allow us to utilize the power of our mind to vanquish them with positivity, faith, trust, and confidence in that we are the power over that which has none.  Those non-living “things” only have as much power over us as we give them.

YOU ARE THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN YOUR LIFE, HERE AND NOW.

Use it wisely.
