Connecting From Within
There are no instructions, no map and no manual in the game of life!
I have to learn how to steer, navigate and guide myself! It is doable and actionable if I lead from within myself. I have to communicate, interact and connect with my inner compass or inner guidance system! It is possible if I live from the inside out.
My inner compass guides me by:
- Listening to my inner voice and leading me from within.
- Following my heart and loving my whole being.
- Believing in myself and trusting my gut instincts.
I am not good with directions or navigation in the real world and then I have to do it for myself too! Life is in a state of constant flux and the directions are ever changing. Talk about scary and exciting all rolled into one! Changing directions is one thing and then there is the fear of the unknown. Which way to go?
I have been thinking more about where I am at instead of where I think I should be! I need to embrace the present and stop thinking about the next thing and the next thing in the future. I need to be right here, right now! I need to accept that waiting for and wanting more right now is a waste of my time and energy. I am missing out on what is right in front of me!
I know in my heart and in my being that I am right where I need to be to get to where I want to be! I need a ton of patience though to just be and live moment to moment each and every day. I do have the potential to grow and in order to grow I have to be in the moment, be open and embrace the possibilities and opportunities. I want to and I am willing to learn and experience life!
- What is important to me and what matters to me?
- How do I define myself to me, myself and I?
- What works best for me?
I have to be true to who I am in everything I do!
I need to ask myself questions and seek out the answers! I need to communicate and listen to myself. I need to connect to my whole being. I need to continually challenge myself and be curious!
I practice self love! I have faith, believe in and trust myself. A major part of being true to myself and knowing who I am starts with loving my whole being. I take the approach that I fit in as I am! That acceptance is the greatest gift I can give myself.
I have that internal direction and guidance that I can tune into and tap into when I need it!
I am learning to come from a place of love instead of fear! I have to get out of my head, follow my heart and move my feet forward. That first step is key in getting started and taking action in living the life I want for myself! It can be a liberating process and a freeing experience when I am open to it and not closed off.
I practice personal growth! I look at situations in my life as growth opportunities. It is about working on it and figuring it out! I learn life lessons from those teachable moments and gain life experiences. It is about changing and transforming into a better version of myself!
Doing more of what I love!
I am working on my other core, the inner core! I am either in alignment with my core in being true to myself or I create distance in moving away from who I am at times. I do not function well when I am not being true and trusting myself. I feel a disconnect and a discord within my whole being!
When I release and let go I am letting the NEW! into my life! There is a time and place for everyone and everything and it will run its course in due time. I feel much better about myself in surrendering and accepting instead of pushing and pulling to get someone or something to work out!
It makes me feel good and gives me happiness!
