Last week I wrote about my over-responsibility and how I am learning – day-by-day, moment-by-moment – to let that go.
This week, what I need to hear and remember (and hopefully it will resonate for you as well) is my day-by-day and moment-by-moment decision and choice to let the love shine in.
Into me. Filling me. Fueling me. Soothing me. All the way.
Today I choose to turn my head and heart away from how I was taught and trained to be and toward how I choose to be now – living, loving, and leading with joy.
I repeat myself so much that even I get tired of hearing myself say things, but today I choose to remember that I have a choice in every moment and that I can rewire my brain away from its negativity bias and toward allowing, savoring, and celebrating all the beauty and love within and around me.
I can rewire my brain to be Velcro for the good…simply by noticing, appreciating, and relishing the good within and around me.
The sun is shining. The birds are singing. The flowers are blooming (note the photo with this post). I’ve just had an amazing cup of coffee. I’m in Minneapolis with one of my favorite people in the entire world.
Completely okay. Even, sometimes, more than okay.
Sure, there are challenging things still going on in my life. And yes, there is much in the world that I long to be different.
I can hold those truths as well and do what I need to do and all I can do to shift what I hope shifts. And, at the same time, right here, right now, I am okay.
When I put my hand on my heart and tell myself that I love myself, I feel the love and joy and beauty of the universe. I feel all the possibilities. I feel limitless and more than able to handle the challenges that come my way and to – to the best of my ability – spread Love With All My Heart.
Today I let the love shine in.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, and please share this post with others if it resonates with you!
