“Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.” – Osho
“A winner is a dreamer who never gives up” – Nelson Mandela
“It is our own thoughts that hold the key to miraculous transformation.” – Marianne Williamson
Over the past few weeks I have been practicing feeling happy for absolute no reason. As Taylor so eloquently explained to me in one of our sessions: happiness is in the palm of your hand, it just needs your participation. That sentence had a profound impact on me and was a total lightbulb moment. I have continued to think about this concept non-stop. As I dedicate myself more and more to my kundalini practice (with even one minute creating undeniable shifts), I have been feeling this surge of happiness. Bringing that energy into each encounter and situation has been a lesson in the power of mindset. Happiness really is a choice we make.
One of my favorite quotes and a beautiful way to start off a new week.
A few years ago I noticed myself in the mindset of getting stuck in life’s difficult moments, unable to see past my own situation. To help shift my perspective, I started beginning and ending my day by writing all that I was thankful for. From my health, friends and family to the act of making tea in the morning or the joy I experienced being creative. This small act helped me to see past the current circumstance and brought loving energy into my day, which quickly extended into all areas of my life. It soon became a habit and is now a crucial part of my well-being. The act of gratitude is a force that has the power to transform our lives.
