If a thought is not serving you well, release it. Give yourself permission to let it go.
Is there a thought that has you stuck in fear and worry, that’s keeping you awake, blocking you from positive action? You no longer have to hold on to it.
You can stop fighting the thought. You can stop providing it a place to exist, stop giving it a reason to be.
You have the power right now to let that thought dissolve into nothing. Choose to clear it from your head, from your life, never welcome to return.
Breathe in the fresh air of a fresh beginning. Feel the power of peace as it expands into your entire awareness.
Now you are free to think higher thoughts with a clear mind, with positive purpose. Now you are free to live your best life.
The way to truly feel good is to do what truly is good. Giving feels so good because it is so good for everyone involved.
Good things we associate with modern life came into being because people found a way to make a positive difference in the lives of other people. To the extent we give, we thrive.
Give, not because it is an obligation, or because you’ve been guilted or shamed into doing so. Give because it is one of the greatest things you can do for yourself.
Giving expands your influence and your significance. And it does so in a way that is beneficial for you as well as for those people your giving touches.
Give, and there is no doubt that you matter, that your life has meaning, purpose. Indulge yourself again and again in the great feeling of making a positive impact in your world.
Let generosity infuse your every action, thought, choice, encounter. And relish the experience of a life that increasingly improves because of what you give.
Where is the joy in your life? It is wherever and whenever you choose to accept it and to live it.
You cannot get joy by taking it away from others, for it disappears as soon as you try to possess it. Nor can you experience joy by burdening it with all sorts of conditions and limitations.
The joy you seek is closer than you think. How many times have you looked right past it, straining to see it in the distance when it is already upon you?
Joy is not found by arriving at its locale. Joy is experienced by allowing it into the moments you live.
If you fear losing joy you will never really know it. Let go of the need to hold it, of the need to contain it, and you’ll truly experience the immensity of joy.
Think not of where joy begins and where it can end, for all that will do is keep it away. The joy of life is yours to know, so simply let it be.
Push forward, then push forward more. Persist in your effort for another minute, then another hour, then another day.
The best choice is not the easiest choice. The best way forward is not the most comfortable way forward.
Yet you can do it, and you can continue to do it. As difficult, inconvenient, tiresome as it may become, you can take the next step, and the next.
What’s quick and easy has already been done, has already lost its value. You have the fortitude to go far beyond that, to create great new achievement and fulfillment.
The moments come, the hours arrive, the days flow into your life filled with new challenge. Persist, and transform the challenges into value, experience, strength and richness.
You’ve already experienced your own persistence, and now is your chance to add to it. Keep going, because you can, and because of all the good things you will bring into being.
What makes something special is that you must forgo other things in order to have it. If there is no missing out on something else, there is no special.
You cannot have it all, and even if you could, it would be meaningless. Because having it all would make it impossible for anything to be special.
What you can do is focus your time, attention, love, resources in a specific direction. What you can do is give your life to what you truly care about.
There are always people, possessions, experiences you’re missing. Yet you never have to miss out on the richness of life.
Just because something is exotic, or looks impressive when you post it online, does not make it special. What makes anything special is committing your care, your focus, your effort to it.
You can make right now special, right now, where you are, with what you have. Life is yours and at any time, in any circumstance, you can fill it with meaning, substance, beauty and love.
Once a moment is gone, you cannot get it back. Spend each one wisely, with intention, with purpose, with meaning.
Your time is more precious than just about anything else you have. For it is with time that you create, access and experience all else.
Don’t let yourself be tricked into providing it too cheaply. What appears to be a bargain in terms of money can end up imposing a terrible cost on your irreplaceable time.
Do you constantly feel you have too little time? That’s a strong indication you’re not placing a high enough value on the time you have.
Each day comes to you with plenty of time for rich, creative, meaningful living. Hold every moment to a high standard, and insist on spending them all engaged in what truly matters.
Time is your opportunity to fill life with great treasure. Make good and meaningful use of every single minute.
Let go, for a while, of thoughts racing through your mind. Give yourself a little time to just be.
You are not your job, your possessions, your impressions, fears, achievements, anxieties. Drift gently into the part of you that existed before those things, that still exists beyond them all.
Release your awareness from limitations you’ve been placing on it. Allow feelings unhindered by labels, with no assumptions, no judgment or pressure to do anything about.
Go back to who you’ve always been and discover what you can now become. Your best possibilities have been hiding in plain sight, waiting until you’re authentic enough to see them.
Dissolve every desire for pretense and allow love to be your guide. Remind yourself how wonderful it is to love life in the way you do.
Endless energy surrounds you and is yours the moment you no longer need it. From the truth of who you are comes the best that you can be.
