“When you wake up in the morning, you need to realize that today is all you have.
You don’t have eventually. You don’t have a series of eventually.
The beauty of life is today. How are you going to make the most of it?” – David Wygant

Many Ways To Happy

There are many ways to get to “HAPPY.” Ways that don’t require a white picket fence, 2.5 kids, or a minivan. The purpose of life isn’t so much about living Happily Ever After as it is just LIVING: boldly, wildly, bravely, unapologetically. Your life is your life and your path is your path and it’s unique and colorful and beautiful and purposeful…  – Mandy Hale

Trust Our Way Through It

Sometimes when there’s uncertainty, we’re not meant to plan our way out of it… we’re meant to trust our way through it.

So, what that means, is that you lean in the direction that feels right, you take continual steps forward, and you trust that every single thing that happens is somehow – someway leading you exactly where you need to be. Easier said than done? Possibly…but, this is something we absolutely can get better and better at doing.

It’s just about reminding yourself everyday to trust the way things are unfolding and then you turn your attention to where it always should be … Today and the moment right in front of you.” – Sibyl Chavis

 

Uncertainty Shows Up

“Uncertainty exists to teach us. To help us learn how to surrender and relinquish our self-promoted ideas of how things “should be.” It shakes loose our reference points so that we don’t develop a illusory belief that we can control our lives if we just try a little bit harder, grip a whole lot tighter. Uncertainty shows up to remind us that there are forces greater than us and that, if we think we already have everything figured out, we leave absolutely no room for magic. Uncertainty shows up to reset us. To bring us back to ground zero so that we can open to a new landscape of possibility, let go of the familiar things that are keeping us small, stifling our imagination.”- Kimberly Jonas

Being Fully and Passionately Yourself

“Imagine how life would be for you if you knew that you were already perfectly wonderful and incredible just the way you are in your true self? What if you could separate out the flawed, wounded, programmed part of you — the part you created to help you survive pain — from the magnificent part of you that God created. What if you could see that your ego-wounded self — with all your fears and protections and ways of trying to have control over getting love and avoiding pain — is not who you are. Then, instead of perfectionism being your guiding light, being fully and passionately yourself becomes your guiding light! I assure you, this is a much easier way to live!” – Margaret Paul, Ph.D.

Our Own Ambitions

One of the interesting things about success is that we think we know what it means. A lot of the time our ideas about what it would mean to live successfully are not our own. They’re sucked in from other people. And we also suck in messages from everything from the television to advertising to marketing, etcetera. These are hugely powerful forces that define what we want and how we view ourselves. What I want to argue for is not that we should give up on our ideas of success, but that we should make sure that they are our own. We should focus in on our ideas and make sure that we own them, that we’re truly the authors of our own ambitions. Because it’s bad enough not getting what you want, but it’s even worse to have an idea of what it is you want and find out at the end of the journey that it isn’t, in fact, what you wanted all along. – Alain de Botton
