2. You always have a choice! What a concept! Frequent use of “should, have to, must, supposed to, need to” reflect the belief of having no choice. Begin noticing when you are using these words and ask, “Who says?” Those words, from parents, teachers, clergy, etc., control and constrict you rather than free and expand you. Do you even recognize you have needs and desires? Ask, “What would my world look like if I created it to work for me?” Write your answers with no limitations. Choose what you’d like to generate in any given situation. This will clarify what will work or not for you. Act on your choice. You can change your choice at any time as nothing is cast in concrete.
3. Give from the overflow, not from depletion. Nurture yourself first by filling your life with quite time and rest, plus activities and people who bring you joy and inspiration. As you begin to exude joy, playfulness and optimism, those around you will be filled and energized from your energy. By not care-taking/fixing, you are giving those around you permission to choose for them! A true win/win!
As you begin choosing for you amazing gifts, people and experiences will abound as more freedom, confidence and creativity unfold within you.
May joy, peace and ease fill your journey!
