Wrapped Up In the Good Life

Life Is Good!

When life gets me down I envision those “Life Is Good” sayings! I tend to gravitate towards those t-shirts when out shopping. It makes me smile and sometimes laugh out loud! It reminds me to keep life simple. There are times I just need to let go and let myself be me for a while!

FUN and Good Times!

I made the decision in 2012 to go on a journey of self and have learned some interesting and some amazing things about myself throughout the process!

My Top 5 Insights

#1 – Letting my guard down and showing more of who I am.

I certainly could do with letting my guard down to be more open and to just live and love way more than I already do! I feel when I am guarded I do not show other people who I am really and truly. I think it helps me interact, communicate and connect with other people better too. There are times I need to find that balance between strength and vulnerability! It helps me grow as a person and for the better too.

#2 – Being in the moment and enjoying the process.

I focus way too much on being worthy, right, correct, or perfect that in doing so I start to lose myself and who I am! I want to get wrapped up in life, but not in that way. It is not about the next thing or the final destination. It is more about enjoying the process throughout the journey and stopping along the way to take in those moments and make those memories, milestones and experiences!

#3 – Tuning into my emotions, feelings and thoughts.

I am a work in progress when it comes to release and surrender, especially when I have no control! I am human and I have to accept myself for who I am and what I want to do in living my life. There is certainly no instructions, directions or roadmaps handed out at birth, so I have to just figure it out as I go! This includes being able to ask for help, guidance and support from within myself and from other people too. This includes being positve and having good intentions to reap the benefits and rewards in all that life has to give me!

#4 – Handling my fears, doubts and negatives.

I need to follow my heart and not my crazy mind! In believing and trusting in myself I am able to have a better grip on my fears, doubts and negatives and instead focus on the good and the positive in my life. I have to be open, accept and experience the ebbs and flows, the ups and downs and the opposites too! I am so worthy of love and happiness.

#5 – Discovering my STRONG again.

I am discovering my STRONG from the inside out! I am taking care of myself and my needs. I am going a little easier on myself and slowing down a bit more. I am being a little more loving and a little more kinder to myself. I am asking other people in my life for help, guidance and support. I am learning, growing and experiencing each and every day in living my life to the fullest!
