The Distance To The Solution

For every challenge, or obstacle, we think we have – there is a solution.  There cannot be a challenge without a solution.  The two go hand in hand.

Sometimes we may not like the solution we come up with, but there is always a solution.  Sometimes the solution may seem as daunting as the challenge.  We may have to build a big bridge.  We may have to get really creative to span the distance between the challenge and the solution.  But there is always an option.

The next time you feel that you have reached an impasse, look around and find the solution that goes along with it.

912595_10201609300064375_565253222_nNature is on the verge of greening up here.  Everything is starting to grow after a long (very long) Winter’s rest.  The first signs of Spring are here.

It is time to take a deep breath and remember that we can trust in the changing of life.  Things change and that is a very good thing.  We can especially see and feel it at this time of year, but it is something that happens regularly.  Things change.

We can be a part of that change.  What would you like to see change in your life?  Is it a job, a relationship, a schedule?  We can change what we want to.  We have power in our own lives.  Right now, in this minute.  What would you like to change?

What Do You Get To Do Today?

Our language can be harsh.  “I HAVE to get up and go to work.”  “I HAVE to take care of the kids.”  “I HAVE to run errands.”

The truth is we do not HAVE to do anything.  Yes, there are consequences to doing nothing, but it is a choice.  The truth is that we GET to do things.  We make the decision that we want these things in our lives, then we GET to do them.

When we feel like we HAVE to do something, we can often resist doing it.  We can grow to resent doing it.  When we feel like this, we can make different choices.  We can get a new job, do things in a different way, ask for help, develop a different plan.  Or just switch up our thinking.

We GET to go to work.  We GET to take care of the kids.  We GET to run errands.

What do you GET to do today?

Juggling Much?

Do you have a lot going on?  Are you trying to juggle too much?  How many balls do you have in the air?

Sometimes we can find our lives are so busy that all we do is put out fires.  It may feel like we are spinning plates, running chaotically around trying to keep any from hitting the floor.  We fall into bed at night and realize we have done nothing for ourselves all day.  We have taken care of everything and everyone, except us.

When we do not take care of ourselves, we do not have a lot to give others.  Especially long term.  It is not selfish to take loving care of ourselves – that gives us more loving energy to take care of others.  It is helpful and important to take great care of ourselves.

When we take care of ourselves, we have more to give others.  We can choose to take a break from all the juggling and give ourselves some care every day.

A Little Something For The Kid In You

We all have a child inside of us.  The child that we once were, the child that we wanted to be.  Some of us are more in touch with our inner child than others, but it is there inside each one of us.

Our inner child loves play and movement.  Our inner child craves the opportunity to be creative.  Our inner child knows there are countless opportunities to express ourselves in fun ways.

How well do you know your inner child?  Do you allow your inner child play and creativity?  What does your inner child love to do?

Doing something for the child inside lifts our spirits.  It gives our brains a break and it can get us up and moving – which is great for our bodies.  Let your inner child play.

If You Love Them, Tell Them

Please do not forget to say, “I love you.”  It is important.  It is healing.  It is helpful.

We say hundreds of things every day.  In our words and in our actions.  Today let’s consciously tell those who are dear to us that we love them.  In the things we do, in how we act, and in what we say to them.  Let’s go out of our way today.  Let’s give some love to those we care about.

It is important to us and the people we love.  If you love them, tell them.

Everything Changes And That’s Okay

Everything changes.  It is a fact of life.  It is a part of life.

If we try to fight the changes in our lives, we are resisting all of life.  And honestly, it does not do us any good.  Change is going to occur with or without our permission.  We can take a breath and let it go.

When we flow with the changes in our lives, we are able to see the beauty, the wonderment of the changes.  We are much less stressed, because we have given up trying to control the universe.  We know that if there is something we can do about a situation, we are fully capable of making healthy decisions.  We know that if there is nothing we can do, we can love it and let it go.

Life moves and changes and so do we.  And that is okay.
