Good Morning Everyone!!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was filled with reflection, analyzing and planning. Since I have the moniker, The Life Architect, I should practice what I preach right? My main message is Design Your Life…Build Your Future. This is what I help people to do, all day every day. But I have a confession…I haven’t been following my own advice and message (yikes!). I have allowed life’s turns and twists sway me back and forth in different directions. It’s even evident in my blog posts! August and September has been a little hay wire, but I recognized it and now I am taking action and living a Designed Life. Now don’t get worried I will not be boring or unlike myself, I will simply have more structure. And structure is good!
For those of you who do not know, I am an entrepreneur, mother, life coach, social media strategist, etc. It seems like a lot but it only becomes overwhelming when I don’t have a system. I want to continue to provide all of you with quality content, so to do that my blog will be as follow:
- Thursdays-Health and Wellness
- Fridays-Personal Development
- Saturdays-Social Media
- Sundays-The Art of Blogging
I look forward to sharing my experience, expertise, and thoughts in all of these areas! I will be setting up an email list so that we can stay connected. I will be launching my website soon and I want you all to be apart of it!!
Design Your Life…Build Your Future!
“If prayer is you talking to God, then intuition is God talking to you.” –Dr. Wayne Dyer
Did You Hear That?
Have you ever been alone thinking about something and you begin to hear a voice speaking to you? Don’t worry, I am not trying to re-create a scene from Paranormal Activity or Ghostly Encounters *smile*. There have been many times when I am pondering over making an important decision and I can hear a voice guiding me on what to do. For those of you that don’t know I am a Christian and I firmly believe in the Holy Spirit. As a child, I was afraid of the Holy Spirit because I thought it was a ghost that told you what to do or possessed you. As I matured in my knowledge of self and spirituality, I have come to the conclusion that the Holy Spirit (for me) is intuition, insight, inspiration, and motivation. Think of it as God’s “tutor” for us, if you may. If you are a Christian then you believe that he created us all with free will. So that means that he can not FORCE us to do what is right in his eyes…right? But through the Spirit, he can make our hairs stand up when something isn’t right, or give us an uneasy feeling when we are about to make a bad decision, etc. We DO NOT have to listen to our “tutor” , but if we do it will awaken us to the infinite possibilities of life and our potential.
When You Know, You Know…
I challenge everyone reading this post to be still and become aware of your spirit. Listen to your inner voice. We are the only species on earth that can SEE and HEAR our thoughts. Once you know, that you know, you are now embarking on a journey of self-discovery and total life fulfillment.
Having knowledge or cognizance, watchful.
A while back I was watching an interview with Deepak Chopra and he stated, “The only way to solve a problem is to expand your awareness.”
It took me quite some time to deconstruct and digest the meaning of his quote. But when I finally did, I had the biggest ‘A-Ha” moment ever. I realized that I had been living my live in a state of unawareness. I did what I wanted, when I wanted and I had no consciousness of the consequences. I did not care about how my thoughts, words, and/or actions affected people. I was completely absorbed within myself. That would explain why I lived a life void of happiness, success, fulfillment, and purpose.
When You Know Better, You Do Better
I am now in a complete sense of awareness. I view myself as the observer of my thoughts, words, and actions and it is kind of awesome!! I am now conscious of the fact that my thoughts, words, and actions have the power to generate either positive or negative energy. I am now focused on putting out positive energy and by default positive energy will be reflected back to me.
Are you aware of your existence in this world? Post your comments below!
to explain or identify the nature or essential qualities of; describe.
“Who are you?” When asked this question, most people respond by stating what it is that they do or what type of role or position that they have. i.e: father, daughter, teacher, etc. I was recently challenged to answer this question void a particular role, status, and or position. Needless to say, it was very difficult to do because in life we tend to assign who we are with what we do. It is when we are stripped of our titles, roles, and positions that we discover who we truly are.
Here are some questions that will allow you to dig deep into your true self:
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
What are your beliefs and values?
Are your actions in line with your beliefs?
If the answer is no, you are not being your true self.
Once we clearly define who we are, we must align it with our beliefs. This is what builds character. Once our character is established we must use our actions to communicate our character to others. This is not an easy task at all…trust me! But once we have mastered our character the journey into discovering our purpose begins. I would love to hear from some readers what their definition of self is. Please post in the comments section below.
This blog is a journey to discovering one’s true self. Once you are aware of your true self, that is when you can tap into your greatest potential and begin living the life you are destined to live.
Every day you are given the chance to experience life anew. All too often people allow the headaches, nightmares, and heartaches of the past control their present, which by default alters their future. Your past is a memory, a mere thought. We tend to let these mere thoughts dictate our actions in the present. How absurd! I am here to encourage you and to let you know that who you were does not exist TODAY. If you woke up this morning and said, “Today I am going to be the best me that I can be”, and you focus all of your energy into that mission…guess what?! That is what you will become! Isn’t that awesome?!
So I challenge you (and myself) to start every day with a mission to be better! Focus on the excitement in knowing that today you can decide to be whatever it is that you want because yesterday doesn’t matter. Let’s direct all of our energy and our thoughts into making today the best day ever! This is the start to laying the foundation of an amazing future!
