~ Inspired Thought of the Day ~

~ Inspired Action ~

I am so amazed by these words. These words of inspiration are what I live for! I am so so grateful!

The old me used to believe you either have courage or you don’t! Now my eyes are wide open and inspired by the thought that courage is just like a muscle! Your courage/muscle may be weak now but with consistent practice and use it can be strengthened! And so I shall!

 Amazing perspective especially now that I am studying health and fitness. This message has clicked into place deep down inside of me and I am so happy and empowered to strengthened the little courage I have bit by bit!

And I am even more in a state of appreciation and empowerment by Oprah’s words below.

I have always been so quick to give up. Fear has always overpowered me when I was younger and I did not understand that there was a way to build it little by little. How I wish I had someone to say to me that Courage is feeling the fear and doing it anyway. How I wish to believe I would of taken action more because of these wise words. I am grateful to have read these words now and understand them. I am grateful to feel more prepared to act even with fear knowing that doing it anyway is an act of courage.

Now I will push forward understanding that my life will expand in proportion to my courage. Because indeed my life is in a place where I believe it has shrunk and it is limited because of the fear that I’ve allowed to take over me. So much of what I envision is only possible when I act with courage! And so I will nurture this muscle of courage use by use so that it is strengthened.

~I pray you are empowered as well~

~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

 

I am so so afraid of standing still. I am so afraid of finding myself in the same unsatisfied and unaccomplished place that I feel I am in right now. I don’t want to be in this place next year!

 

“Be not afraid of moving slowly; be afraid of standing still.” is a lifesaver. There are days where I would lose motivation and find myself at a “plateau”. These words have helped empower me to continue moving forward at my own pace. Although my pace is slow due to inconvenient circumstances; each day that I push forward only pushes me one day closer to my goal and so I refuse to stand still.

 

When you don’t hear those words above enough one tends to forget such common sense. The more I see those words, the more the meaning starts to sink in and turns from inspired thought to inspired action.

Reading that success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out has given me so much RELIEF! I feel better to think that I am on the right track moving at the pace that I am in. I do feel that I need to pick up the pace though because my level of urgency has diminished a bit due to emotional adversity. Coming to better understand that the small steps that I am taking will sum up to the success I wish to reach has fueled my passion to achieve!

 

I’ve come to realize with such clearer understanding that mistakes are not meant to make you feel inadequate and unworthy of success.

Mistakes are not opportunities for you to quit.

Mistakes are opportunities for growth and improvement.

In the past, when I made a mistake I would be so quick to respond with harsh words to myself. I didn’t need anyone to discourage me because I was my own worst critic! I got in the way of my own success with such a negative and uninspiring attitude.

It’s time to let go of the thoughts that do not make me strong.

With practice all of these inspiring words will become normal thoughts and normal actions. This is what I aspire to achieve.

~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

With one life to live and that one life to enjoy, can you truly afford to fulfill another person’s dream instead of your own?

Especially if that profession is not part of your passion?

If the profession you have been hired into is not part of your passion, you cannot afford to sacrifice your dream for another’s.

When I speak of affordability, I don’t speak of it financially. I speak of it mentally and spiritually.

We cannot mentally and spiritually afford the growth of regret and the feeling of failure that most likely will hit us when we grow old enough to start looking back and wishing that we could of lived our life a whole lot differently.

Think of all the time and energy you have invested in your job so far that has yet to fulfill what you truly desire but it has helped fulfill the desires of your boss or CEO. (More than one vacation, personal luxuries and financial freedom.)

If you desire the reward of more than one well deserved vacation, unlimited personal luxuries and financial freedom do all you can to start off slowly and work your way up to momentum.

I am so grateful for these motivational words:

“It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop.”

If you can’t fulfill your dream Full time, do all you can to at least start fulfilling it part time.

1 hour a day, 3 hours a day or 5 hours a day. At the end of your days you will smile knowing that you did not give in and throughout your lifetime you have fulfilled most if not all that you have set your mind to.

With one life to live, I sincerely hope you achieve All.

A recipe for Easy Delicious Beautiful Brain Food!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

From Jay Kordich on Facebook

“BRAIN FOOD! Simple, Easy, Delicious & Beautiful……Here’s a wonder food that Everybody is going to absolutely LOVE for the Holidays coming up…Please let your kids get involved too. Organic Only. 🙂

2 cups Fresh Almond Milk
1 cup Fresh Frozen Blueberries… Blend all)

OR….

2 cups Fresh Juiced Almond Milk
1.5 cups Fresh Blueberries

(Juice the Blueberries and add the fresh juiced Almond Milk) This makes for a SUPERIOR tasting smoothie.

Blend away and enjoy!!!!

What’s ‘THIS’ good for? #1 is our Brains…read on:

Antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids in some nuts and oils may curb inflammation and this recipe is full of these fatty acids. Inflammation is linked to age-related dementia. Blueberries, curry powder, pomegranates, walnuts, flaxseed are brain foods. You can spice up your salad by adding walnuts and flaxseed oil. There’s buzz about blueberries, for instance, for their memory-boosting potential. But berries of all hues are antioxidant-rich, reports Navindra P. Seeram, Ph.D., assistant professor at the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy in Kingston. That means they combat free radicals, molecules that can cause widespread cell damage and are linked to chronic inflammation. Unlike the inflammation that occurs when you sprain an ankle or strain a muscle, the type that contributes to aging is persistent, and thought to be at the root of most chronic diseases, from cancer, heart disease, and diabetes to Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and osteoporosis. Berries’ beauty bonus: They’re chock-full of naturally ocurring vitamin C, another potent antioxidant that may help keep your complexion looking smooth by fighting those pesky (skin-damaging) free radicals.”

~Today’s Inspired Thought~

This is the reason why I am getting more comfortable living life as a single woman right now ♥

Because I love myself enough to see that “being single doesn’t mean that [I] know nothing about love. [But that] sometimes, being solo is wiser than being in a false relationship.

For the past 10 years I have placed myself in one false relationship to another. Due to my own false definitions of love. I was so in love with love that I blinded myself from the truth!

Just because he finds you physically attractive and you find him physically attractive does not guarantee that it is love. Just because you talk or text everyday does not guarantee that it is love. 

You “love” the fact that he is attractive and you “love” the fact that you can talk everyday but that doesn’t mean it’s True Love!

 It is the experience that I loved! The experience that he looks better, talks better, and acts better than the last guy or men you’ve dated in the past but that does NOT guarantee that it is True LOVE.

I can’t afford another false relationship anymore. I have cried enough tears and suffered enough from low esteem and doubts of my own abilities. I take full responsible for putting my soul in so much emotional turmoil because I kept choosing Mr. Wrong.  I’ve spent too much time with Mr. Wrong  and hindered possibly many opportunities for me to cross paths with Mr. Right.

Thank you God, for the person who has shared both of these wise words today because I needed them today, yesterday and the day before that especially! I have been fighting temptation the past few days. I have visited his facebook page playing tug of war with the thought To write?! or Not to write?! 

These words were God Sent! I am grateful to my facebook friend for sharing both of these quotes! I’ve deleted my ex’s phone number month’s ago and the only thing that is keeping me from writing to him on facebook is considering the fact that he could be Mr. Wrong and if I go back to him I will never find Mr. Right.

And with one life to live, I can’t afford that!

I fully recognize that my desire to write to him is fueled by the disappoinment and regret that our relationship did not work just like the ones before him.  And my heart is sinking right now after writing those words ….just like the ones before him…I hate how I have to add him to my talli of failed relationships!

But once again I can’t afford to never find Mr. Right if I can’t let go of Mr. Wrong!

I have found strength today to continue to learn to live in love with myself and allow Mr. Right to come on God’s Time. I believe that as long as I keep my steps aligned with God and stay aligned to my line of positive purpose we will cross paths. ~♥~ ♥~ It is inevitable ~♥~ ♥~

“Often, out of our greatest rejection comes our greatest direction.” – Joel Osteen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The more I read those words; The more I welcome rejection/adversity with open arms (even when it hurts so DEEP inside! SO DEEP that it brings me tears!) Oi! My chest just tightened up inside just thinking of the current obstacle that has come my way and the fear that I may not overcome it! :(.

But I now understand that rejection/failure is a great lesson towards success and a broken heart is a great lesson towards true love. ❤ ❤ ❤
So I will push forward and search for direction when rough times come my way. #inspiredaction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is even more encouraging to read that

“Your problems aren’t there to decrease you, their there to increase you.” – Joel Osteen

Your knowledge/awareness is increased, your abilities are increased, you courage is increased when you learn the lessons that come along with the problems!

So adversity is not there to knock you down but there to educate you to push me forward and also prevent such adversity from happening again! Even if we face the same level of  adversity that tried to knock us down again, we are properly prepared to face it and use the strength we gained from the previous experience to confront it!

And!

Have you seen a setup from your setbacks?! Always keep your eyes open!

Joel Osteens’ and Willie Jolleys’ inspirational words have inspired my thoughts which will now inspire my actions tonight and tomorrow. And there is one more set of words that puts the cherry on top of this wonderful cake! And those words are:

Wise words in this text

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie Ten Boom

“You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”  – Albert Einstein

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie Ten Boom

I needed these words 6 months ago and after constant reminder I now have the strength not to feel overwhelmed from worry.

Worries that have stressed and kept me up at night are no longer allowed to fill my mental space; Because I finally understand that

Worrying used to suck my strength away, it sucked my smiles away, it sucked my energy to laugh, it sucked my ability to think clearly, it sucked my self-confidence and so I now I use strength to stop worrying because I value my smile, I love how it feels to laugh, I love the results of clear thoughts and I cannot afford to lose my self-confidence. Strength will push my worries away and so for now on I use my strength to resolve my worries.

“You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”  – Albert Einstein

Use strength as your solution to your worries. You cannot solve a problem with worrying but you can solve a problem with strength. This has been my #inspiredaction.

My strength is knowing that there are always solutions to a problem. And so with faith I focus on finding the solution.

Instead of putting so much energy in crying myself to sleep which only makes me start my day in a bad note which will attract more negative outcomes. Or putting so much energy in stressing out which makes me emotionally eat and gain weight. (nothing good comes out of worrying)

I’ve decided to put more of that energy on positive faith and focus.

Faith that there is always a solution and Focus in finding what that solution is.

How is life like when you are not worrying?

Life is calmer.  Life is tamed. Life is better.

And so my strength, my faith, my focus is to return to those feelings once more.

Wise words in this series

Don’t be distracted by criticism. Remember –the only taste of success some people have is when they take a bite out of you. -Zig Ziglar

“I’m not trying to erase my past….I’m just trying to be better for the future” – Perez Hilton

“What you are aware of you are in control of; what you are not aware of is in control of you.”

“Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons.” ~C Scott

“Life involves a continuing series of choices.” – My Fitness Book

“All the problems we experience in life can be relieved with a spiritual solution” – Oprah

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“What you are aware of you are in control of; what you are not aware of is in control of you.”

I am so grateful to have witnessed a man, who once found great pleasure in criticizing celebrities, has found inspiration to redeem himself when he realized that what he once took pleasure in was just the same as how children are being bullied in school.

Celebrity Blogger, Perez Hilton fully recognizes that he can not run away from his past by just saying that he has changed his ways. And so he now is taking action and setting a great example by letting the world know that he admits that he was wrong and that he is taking action to change his ways.

An audience member expressed that she is finding it hard to believe that he has changed; and he responded by saying that “I’m not trying to erase my past…I’m just trying to be better for the future” ~~~What an Aha moment for me.~~~

“Life involves a continuing series of choices.” and he is now choosing a better future.

These words below supports him so well.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyday the sun rises is an opportunity for all of us to grow into a new and better person towards a new and better future.

Whatever bad you or someone has done yesterday, last month, last year should be seen as just that. That was yesterday, that was last month, that was last year and so on.

You should **be given room to change** and/or that person or persons **should be given room to grow, change, redeem themselves** instead of be held in a box of “No Good” for the rest of your or their lives just because of the bad you or they did in the **past**.

“Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons.” ~C Scott

We are all flawed…..There is no such thing as a perfectly birthed human being…..and so everyone should be given a chance to redeem themselves.

Everyone has the ability to change when the people around them changes their attitude towards them. Family, Friend, Ex, etc…..give people room to redeem themselves.

You don’t have to put up with their toxic attitudes and actions, if necessary, stay away from them….keep at a distance from them and give them room to redeem themselves…for however long it takes.

“All the problems we experience in life can be relieved with a spiritual solution” – Oprah

I believe all our troubles are meant to direct us to aligning our steps with GOD…aligning our steps to lessons that will lead to good ways.

Give room for someone to find their path towards alignment with God….towards alignment with GOOD.

I am so so so grateful for Oprah’s Lifeclass
