#MindfulMonday | Winning the Battle

Half the battle of life is to see life as something other than a battle.
​​​​​​​
Life can be hard.

It isn’t always hard.

Whether it is or it isn’t oftentimes depends on how you look at it.

The trick is to not let the hard times form your global perspective on life.

#MindfulMonday | Rejection

It doesn’t seem to matter how old we get, we still worry about whether or not people will like us and want to engage with us.

To step out of our comfort zone and invite people in, knowing full well that they may reject us, is a big leap indeed.

But invite we must, for who are we without others with whom to reflect, encourage, and suppose?

Keep inviting others to come out and play; after all, that’s how the best of friends are made.​​​​​​​

#MindfulMonday | Staying the Course

Your convictions are your own to manage; no one else is responsible for whether you follow whatever course you’ve chosen.

Be grateful for fellow travelers—thank goodness you don’t have to go it alone—but don’t make your progress contingent on their willingness to walk the same path, the same way, at the same pace, or you’re bound to second-guess every step and never really advance. 
​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​Go confidently in the direction of your goals, until or if you choose a different route or destination.

#MindfulMonday | Progress

Be fascinated by who you’ve become just since yesterday because of the experiences, epiphanies, people, and spiritual shifts you’ve encountered.

Be mindful of which of these you’ve carried into today.

Be curious about which of them you will carry into tomorrow.

Be conscious of who you might become as a result.

Progress doesn’t happen overnight. Appreciate the steps you’ve taken along the way, and the steps you will take in the future, to accomplish your goals.

#MindfulMonday | Visions

Pay attention to the visions that call to you when you’re awake or asleep.

You don’t have to chase them, react to them, worry or obsess over them.

Just walk with them, mindfully, so that if they continue to summon you, you can meet them and respond to them with clarity and wisdom.

Today, face things head-on. Your intuition is always trying to tell you things if you’re open to listening.​​​​​​​
