Unpacking Your Own Advice

Writing journal

Now that our move to a new home is complete,  I’m able again to find the time for personal and work projects in a more focused way.  I’ve set some goals in the next few weeks and months including journaling, blogging and editing a writing project.

Last night as I was looking for a journal for writing,  I looked at a spare copy of my book Writing Your Destiny and in the spirit of this week’s post, thought it’s time to unpack my own advice.

One of the reasons that I wrote “journal” books has been because we have so much advice coming at us, and what most of us need to do is to find our own answers, philosophy, lifestyle and wisdom.

So, rather than offer you any new advice this weekend,  I just want to remind you to honor yourself and maybe act upon some advice you’ve either written or spoken in the past, but haven’t quite gotten around to actually unpacking as an action in your life.

Sometimes we need to pay attention to our personal voice more than the collective voices around us.

Today’s Contemplation:

Is is time to rediscover your own gifts of insight and wisdom and follow your own advice?

Challenges Resolved by Returning Again

Some of the most important journeys in life happen after we first experience failure, and having learned from the experience, we start our journey again,  with the gold of experience and wisdom guiding us.

Perhaps this has happened to you after failure.

  • You decide to love again, and find the love of your life.
  • You start another business and this time you succeed beyond your imagination.
  • You lose your health and through a new way of living you find a way to feel better than ever before.
  • You hit bottom with your finances and experience a quantum leap allowing you to rebuild prosperity to new levels.

Sometimes failing is exactly what we need to move to the next level in our life.

Daily Contemplation:

Have you ever experienced challenges that are resolved by returning again?

Are you on any journeys in life where starting again is the best way to resolves an issue?

Too often we wait for conditions to be right to show our inner sweetness.

Any life can be a sweet life, even under in the most challenging conditions.   Sweetness is an inner attitude, though certainly some creatures seem to be born with an abundance of sweetness.

Is there any one whose presence in your life has made it more sweet?

As so much of nature shows us — it is always a good time to live a sweet life!
