We all need a pat on the back sometimes. Let me enthusiastically send each of you a virtual “pat” of love.
I have been hearing from many that these past few months have been trying emotionally. “It seems as if I do nothings right,” or “Why is my life not working right now?” or “What can I do to solve my money issues?” The answer is the same, stay encouraged and full of faith. In every obstacle there is a challenge, but these is also, more importantly, an inner lesson to learn. These teachable moments come at the right time to educate you…they are not for anyone else but you.
You can pass the test, stay encouraged. My “daughter” Jenna attended the O YOU event, put on by Oprah Winfrey in Atlanta Saturday and they said the same thing I am saying to you. Stay encouraged – keep a joyful attitude. Be still, find your inner and outer sources of strength. One compelling way to give yourself a pat on the back is to pause and meditate on one or two things that are good in your life right now.
Why don’t you do that with me, or whenever you can today. Stop everything for five minutes, pause and stop. Next, sit in a relaxing pose and close your eyes. Some have soft music playing at this time or others have nature sounds in the background or you may have a favorite CD of mantras to use that augments your meditation/pat on the back time. I can do this with or without either, depending on my need or the situation at the time. Just sit and relax and clear your mind.
The twist today is that I want you to think of one or two things that are good in your life right now…feel the feelings – think on only the good in your life TODAY. Feel deeply and with appreciation the good…yes, the good. Then, open your eyes and carry the feelings with you throughout the day.
Tell me how you feel after this meditation of encouragement. Let me hear back from you please.
Be encouraged, you are good and your life is good.
