It’s such a joy to live life with constant curiosity. I’ve come to realize when I take time to let go of the clutter in my mind, I’m open to new possibilities. My practice of meditation has allowed me to open up a part of myself that I’ve longed for my entire life. A confidence in myself to be me 100% authentic.
Recently, I was presented with an opportunity I would have shied away from in the past. I found myself standing face to face with someone new who held a very strong opinion of how they see the world that’s starkly different from mine. I was able to say, “I disagree” and other poised things such as, “Tell me more about that,…”
It was an amazingly peaceful conversation of disagreement and acceptance of each other and how we choose to operate in the world as we see it differently. I’m so grateful for my vision of the world being full of love and kindness. I see evidence of my vision everyday. My heart is full and my mind is at peace.

Whoa!! I love it when a moment of clarity POPS into my realm of awareness. YES!!! I’m so excited to share this with you guys!!! Ya know how little changes and slight little tweaks make a big difference in the long run? Well, this very recent realization is one of those things that I foresee making a huge impact on my life and potentially yours too if it resonates with you.
Check it out, I was listening to someone tell a story the other day and I hadn’t noticed this yet, but this person was having a little trouble staying focused on their story and was meandering around a bit over details, ya know trying to remember specific things and they jokingly said to me, “You’re probably thinking, ‘just get on with your story dummy'”. However, #1 it hadn’t even registered in my mind that they were struggling and #2 it’s not my style to rush someone through their story or to call them dummy. I pride myself on being a good and patient listener, so I clarified, “Hey, don’t judge yourself with my mind. That’s not what I was thinkin’ and that’s not fair to me OR to you for that matter to judge yourself with your perception of my thoughts”.
Wait a minute!
Wheels turning,… information clicking into place,… awareness expanding,….
It’s not fair to me either when I allow myself to judge myself with my perception of what others MIGHT be thinking about me and it’s not fair to them. Cue the revelation music please and I’ve noticed over the last couple of days since I’ve this AHA! moment, I’ve allowed that self doubt and negative self talk to rescind a bit further, enabling my confidence and self assuredness to expand. It’s so cool to me every single time I gain more awareness. I LOVE IT!!! 😍
