You have permission to rest.

You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken.

You do not have to try and make everyone happy.

For now, take time for you.

It's time to replenish.

Abraham-Hicks

It is always hard to find the time to do all that you need to do and it's as often as not that you, yourself, don't make the short list. This becomes a habit, a way of life.... you get the short end of the stick and barely have the time to even notice. You have your job, your parents, your children, your home, pets etc. etc. etc. and these are simply the basics. If the kids have to be chauffeured somewhere, it's a safe bet that you will miss out on gym time, your run or coffee with a friend, whatever it may be that fulfills your needs. 

This scenario quickly becomes the norm .... taking care of everyone within a 10-mile radius, with little time left for you and your needs. 

You are NOT responsible for everything that happens in the world AND if you don't take care of yourself you will be no good to anyone else. You ARE responsible for YOU, that's it, Obviously, if you have small children or pets they must be attended to, but otherwise..... You are the main event! 

So if you are able to give your time and attention to the others, you can do the same for you. Make your needs known, replenish your soul, take time for you. You are important, act like it.

Choose your thoughts wisely for they are the energy that creates your life. Abraham

You didn't come to straighten people out that believe differently from you... you do not need them to think like you do in order to feel good. Abraham

Many time it is better not to say anything. Just rest in your knowing that all is well. Abraham

You can't be mad enough at everything to make it go away. AH

This simply means that 'stuff' will continue to happen, the world will spin on its axis, there will be war, natural disasters, famine, poverty, prejudice, racism, etc. and you will be a witness to many injustices in the world. You cannot fix these things, they, too, happen for the greater good.... there is always a reason, in the midst of adversity there is always a spark of goodness.  

"You cannot suffer those suffering into wellness. You can't get sick enough to help the sick become well, and you can't get poor enough to help the poor become prosperous. And you can't feel bad enough to help the bad feel good."  Abraham-Hicks

Your main concern has to be you. You are here for a reason, in the scheme of things, and you need to prevail in order to address that challenge. Therefore, your mental/physical health and well-being are of utmost importance. 

"Just rest in your knowing that all is well." Abraham

The meaning of life is just to be ALIVE. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves ... Alan Watts

Being ALIVE, getting with the program, making life work for you, not following anyone's lead, but doing only what makes YOU feel ALIVE. 
Everyone needs to find something that gives them that feeling, whether it is nature, sports, dancing, or cooking... it doesn't matter what it is, it's just important to give yourself over to something that comes directly from the soul, that brings out your inner joyful child. (I must stress that I am not referring to any artificial means of refilling your empty joy tank)

Life is not meant to be a struggle, it is to be a celebration. On the whole, you are here to 'do' life, not make it a menial, frustrating chore. There are times when one has to manage life's traumas and dramas... these are the trials of life, meant to be growth related. They need to be dealt with, then dropped as soon as you feel able, so you can bring yourself back to life. Don't get lost in the negative, just breathe and carry on. That's it, it can be simple if you allow it, no complications, it's up to you.

You are in charge of your life, therefore your reactions to what life throws at you are your choice. There are no problems, unless you, yourself create them. You can choose to be devastated, scared to death, or calm and secure in the knowledge that you are OK. There is nothing beyond you, you are holding all the cards, you make your life exactly what you want it to be. Make your stumbling blocks into building blocks and construct the life you want.

"All problems are an illusion of the mind" Eckhart Tolle

IT IS AS YOU BELIEVE IT TO BE

What someone thinks of you cannot affect you, it is your focus about what you imagine they are thinking that affects you.
Abraham

When you're looking at someone else, and they are feeling disapproval of you, they are not reflecting to you their personal opinion of you... They are reflecting back to you, the image you hold of yourself-every single time. Abraham

Your thoughts change the behaviour of everyone and everything who has anything to do with you. Abraham

Isn't it amazing how 'far off' a person can be, especially concerning themselves?  

You thought/imagined you saw someone doing or saying something that you felt was disapproving and that was NOT what is going on. You were actually seeing yourself reflected right back to you. It is you that is disapproving. 

You reflect your feelings to those around you. You literally change the way a person acts toward you. You are drawing people to you to reflect your attitude. 

Once you realize that getting what you put out is the basis of your existence, you will become more mindful of your thoughts. You can change your thoughts to benefit you always, in all ways. It is all about you, just as it always has been.

The Universe always says yes.


If you claim, "I'm broke, I don't have a dime!", the Universe says yes, you're right....

If you claim "I'm very prosperous, I always have a lot of money!" The Universe says yes, you're right...

And that's how it works....

Your situation will dictate the feelings you have around what you want or need. 

If you have just lost your job, you may be sending a message similar to this.... 'please help me, I don't have enough money to pay the rent, the mortgage, the bills etc. and I need more money, there is never enough.' If this is what you are asking and/or obsessing about, this is exactly what you will get..... MORE LACK!

If everything is going great and you're just flowing with the current, it's quite likely that nothing is being said at all. When life is easy we are content, perhaps even happy and so many of us just wait for the other shoe to drop. We don't want to acknowledge how blessed we are for fear of losing everything. That is the complete opposite of how the Universe works. 

This is the time to connect with the feeling of abundance, ease, happiness, and love. Just say THANK YOU!

You're here for the thrill of the ride.  Abraham-Hicks

So what do you think about that?

You are here to be YOU, to do what you do. You are filling a very necessary slot in the scheme of things. You are also here to be happy, to enjoy your time and transmit your joy to those around you.

You are NOT here to try harder or do better... no one is keeping score. It is NOT necessary to try harder to be loved, to be accepted, to be smarter, slimmer, more accomplished, or whatever it may be that you feel you are lacking.... you are not lacking. You are perfect just as you are to do what you are here to do. If fact, you are the ONLY one that can do what you do. 
You are unique.

So, then, why are you so hard on yourself? What makes you think that someone doesn't like you or that you must be doing something wrong? All those negative feelings serve no purpose. You don't want them or need them, you simply cannot afford one single negative moment. Kick them to the curb. You are too important to waste your time feeling 'less than.'

"If we were talking to you on your first day here, we would say....
Welcome to Planet Earth!
There is nothing you cannot be, do or have.
And your work here, your life time career.... is to seek JOY." AH

 "I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed"-The Scarecrow -Wizard of Oz

Who are these people? The unusual ones... the artists, the actors, the rebels, the explorers, the daring, bold, adventurous, courageous ones. These are the people that are usually 'out there', the movers and shakers of society. They are willing to take a risk, put their face on display and fight for a cause. They get things done. They make sure that they are noticed; they will not die with their music still in them. 

"Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out." Oliver Wendell Holmes
"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation."  Henry D. Thoreau

Don't put your life on hold. Don't wait for next month, next year or the culmination of your five-year plan. Do what you want to do NOW. Now is all you have, this is the time to live. Do whatever you have been dreaming of doing. If it is important, you will find a way. Take the road less traveled. 

What is stopping you from doing what you want to do? Is it talent, money, degrees, confidence, handicap, ability, laziness, insecurity or FEAR?  Most people are not living their dreams because they are living their fears. You will not be happy until you address the fear.  Hesitation, procrastination, excuses are all pointing to the fact that you are afraid. That is nothing to be ashamed of, everyone is afraid of something, but you are the only one that can feel the fear and do it anyway. 

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue. Dreams that you dare to dream, really do come true. Do not live and die unnoticed.
