Magnificent and Glorious POWER

I started this blog with a bunch of silly distracting bunny trails and then I asked myself, “Is this really how you wanna go about this?” Not really, I mean the whole point of Apozitude is to raise awareness and bring about clarity, if it can be mildly entertaining along the way, well that my friends is what we call a bonus.

The truth of the matter is EVERYTHING ALWAYS boils down to ONE thing. I know, I know, you don’t have to remind me, I’ve heard the advice against using words like “always” and “every” so bare with me, but ALL the observation I’ve done over the years of myself and others has led me to this one undeniable fact. EVERYTHING always boils down to ONE thing. EVERYTHING we say, EVERYTHING we do always boils down to this ONE thing. Yes, that’s right, OUR ENTIRE EXPERIENCE boils down to ONE thing and that ONE thing my friends is the magnificent and glorious POWER of CHOICE. 

For instance when leaving New Orleans recently, we arrived at the airport very early. Early enough, in fact, to catch the plane departing to Colorado prior to ours. Colorado? NOOOOO, we want to go home. Where’s the Portland plane? I’m sorry to inform you that’s the next flight to depart.

Oh,… ok. What do we do now?

Insert the magnificent and powerful CHOICE!! We can sit at the gate and wait with all of these restless people for the Colorado plane, wait for everyone to deplane, wait for all these people to stand in line, wait for them to board their plane and then wait again for our plane? It was a simple choice. Let’s go get a cup of coffee. What a sense of relief, I felt so much better about waiting for a waitress and a cup of coffee.

See how simple the magnificent and glorious power of choice affected our experience? The secrets to unlocking this magnificent power are very simple too. Check it out:

1. Awareness 

2. Action

Next week, I’ll be sharing a 4 step mindfulness process to assist YOU in mastering the magnificent and glorious POWER of CHOICE. Will you check back in next week? The choice is yours.

Change Your Entire Life with One Blog

If breathing is essential for life and it is, right? That would kinda looks like this:

                                                       Breathing = Life

I wonder if we tweaked that equation a bit how it might affect our lives. Consider for a moment adding intention to the equation. Would it seem logical that would look more like this:

                                    intention + breathing = intention + life

                                                                 OR

                                  intentional breathing = intentional living

I’m by no means suggesting we take the time to be aware of each individual breath. We’d never get anything done. LOL What I am suggesting is taking an increment of time that seems reasonable to you and sitting quietly focused on breathing intentionally. There’s tons of research that supports the fact that focusing on breathing also known as meditation even for a short amount of time such as 10 minutes will help reduce stress, increase happiness, increase your level of satisfaction in life, improve relationships and your career.

With all of those benefits and the fact that it’s absolutely free, I’m left with one staggering question, What are you waiting for? Maybe it seems overwhelming because you don’t feel like you have time or you have no idea where to start.

Well I believe the fact that you’ve taken the time to read this blog is a pretty good sign that you have an interest in creating a life of intention. How often have you found yourself interested in something and there was absolutely no cost and no risk to you for you to pursue that interest?

Think about it. You hold within you the power to choose and with one little click you can begin your journey to a life packed full of happiness and satisfaction. The trick to this is your level of determination. It takes practice and for me, meditation ebbs and flows in and out of my daily routine, but the benefits keep me coming back. I just keep trying.

What about you? Are you satisfied with your life? If a single aspect of your life could be improved and you feel inclined to begin or continue your journey towards a happy life of satisfaction, I invite you to click that one little click above. Go ahead, take ten minutes for yourself. If not now, when? When will you make your sense of satisfaction your #1 priority? You have the power to change your entire life, right here, right now.
