When you open your eyes in the morning, be grateful.  Be still.  Set an intention for the day, repeat a mantra or commit to working on something you struggle with.  Each day, maintain your baby steps towards a better you, to feeling better and reaching for those good feelings and thoughts. Try a little harder, but be loving towards yourself each step of the way. Stop beating yourself up over everything.  Be gentle.  You are a beautiful soul, and your expansion, transformation and self-development are a process. Everything takes time.

This physical life is very temporary. It’s time to see who you really are and why you came here. To realize your brilliance, and allow it to shine. It is very wasteful to spend your days harboring bad feelings and limiting your expression of light and love. There is no value in that whatsoever and only brings pain.

Check in with yourself throughout the day to see how you’re feeling, where you’re at, and how you can change directions if you’re struggling.

Allow. Allow your love and passion to flow. Allow creativity to be born through you. Enjoy what is. And dream for more. Live an authentic life, practice freedom of expression in all forms.

Respect your body for the incredible vehicle it is, it houses the most priceless gift of life. Move, walk, dance and sing. Have fun doing it.  Enjoy nature.

Stop focusing so much on what’s missing, and what doesn’t feel good. Start to feel good about what is (and isn’t) and how miraculous it all is. It is okay to not have it all right now. We always have what we need in each moment. There is beauty and love and abundance around us at all times.  All we have to do is open our eyes, and shift our focus and perception.

Practice acceptance and surrender (pseudo) control. Not everything means something. And not everything is personal. Meet challenges with Grace, and live with integrity. Be kind… to yourself, to others, to animals, to the Earth. We are all in this together.

When you go to bed at night, quietly reflect on the day.  What challenges did you face? What could you have handled more gracefully? What can you forgive yourself for, or someone else, to move towards true healing? What can you shed light and love on to transform and absolve for a fresh start tomorrow? Honor the gifts bestowed upon you, focus on what felt good, and intend to strive for your desires, again, when you rise for a new day.

Again, be gentle with yourself. And life. It’s all a process. But it’s all so very magnificent.
