Many of us focus on the end results of our life and not on what is happening right now in this moment,  I wondered what it was that kept us focusing on the future with little or no thought or focus on today.  Really, you do not know what the future holds for you and even if you did you would have no control over it anyway.  The only thing you have control over is you in this moment, so why waste the opportunity?  Being a control freak myself, I like to have control or at least the illusion of control, so if I know that right now in this moment I can truly have control over my life, then I say let me at it!  I have control over what I think, what I say, how I feel and what I do about it, What Power, I am giddy with it.  Right now in this moment I choose to live my life to the fullest and really enjoy the control I do have and give up that illusion of control over anything else in my life.  In fact, I no longer want to have control over those things I really never had control over, way too much work.  I choose to enjoy the freedom that comes with letting go.  I choose to live my life to the fullest, in this moment.  I wish you the same!

Today as I was working, I received a call from an dear friend of the family.  She was a close friend to my grandmother.  Hearing her voice and the sadness that still lingers there for the loss of my grandmother (it has been 3 years) but for this lovely women it as if it were yesterday, I realized that for her time has stopped.  It made me think about how precious our time is with people we love and know.  How our time here in this lifetime really is just a flash in the cosmic time.  I want to make change, make a difference, to effect global reawakening, and yet…..Am I really taking the moments with people that I meet on the street, at my door, in my daily life, in my business or even my close personal friends and family, am I taking the time I need to get to know who they are, what makes them live in the reality they do?  Am I taking the time to discover the precious moments the precious gifts that they have to offer me and am I offering them my gifts.  Am I helping to raise them up to the light?

All of these precious moments are the little joys that truly give our life meaning.

Find some joy today!

Light it up!

Are you thinking your thoughts or Are your thoughts thinking you?  A question you may want to be asking yourself any time that little pesky voice rears up and starts telling the truth, as it sees it, not the Truth you know.

Taking stock of your thoughts is a good way to know what is going on in your life; are you thinking..I do not have enough time,  I am always late, I am too fat,  too thin, too.. too…too!  Here is a good one, I do not know what I want or I am so stupid!  Listen to the words you say (or the voice says) to yourself.  They are very telling.

Are you fed up with giving your attention to the little voice?  Are you ready to take back control of your thoughts and take back control of your life?

Be the MASTER of your own Universe, start with your thoughts.

Have a positivity day.

At this time of year I often find myself thinking of how many of us move through our lives in this seemingly endless conveyor belt of activities.  All very expected of course.  Must buy a gift for ……….fill in the blank.  Time to plan dinners and feasts and decorate.  All so busy and yet, over all too soon.  This year I am more conscious of who and what I want to see, spend time with and enjoy.  I want to have real connections with people I really like.  That is not to say that I spend time with people I do not like but often I find myself in the company of others not having the time to really get to know them on a deeper level, it is all so civilized and superficial.

I have finally learned to like people and am fascinated by them. After all of this time I see people for who they are, not the mask they wear and want us to see.  Most of them are just trying to get through without too many disappointments, aches, pains or hurts.

I invite you to discover the hidden not so noticeable treasure that we have available to us ever day, not just this time of year.  This treasure is right under our noses; it is the precious gift that is the human spirit.  We have the remarkable ability to choose the lives we live.  Most of us choose the route that makes us feel safe.  Some of us, those rare jewels, have the courage to dive into each day and choose to live lives filled with magic!

I for one am going to take the time and choose to discover the real Joy, which is the magic of YOU!

Joy to you!

The Longevity Goddess

This time of year my mind always wonders to those wonderful family times, to sharing good food and feeling safe and loved.  Looking back on those memories and how simple life seemed I find myself longing for that feeling again.  That innocence of times long ago………. OK so that was nice but I live NOW, here in this time and I want to make this time FEEL as wonderful as that felt them without trying to live in the past.
That is the challenge to bring the feelings forward to the NOW time without getting lost in the THEN time.  Recently I decided to see what it was like to live in the moment.  I have heard it my whole life but it never seemed possible or real. After all we live in a world that expects us to be certain places at certain times and if we aren’t people get mad.  WE are expected at any given moment to remember any number of facts to the point that we are filling our minds with all sorts of pasts and futures all at once and how do we STOP and live in this moment?

I am here to tell you it is possible!  I did not say it was easy but it is possible.
I did have to adjust my idea about it was slightly to function in the 21st century but here it is…….

Keep a really good schedule!!  I mean it; living in the now requires organization. No jumping in and saying “I am just going to live in the NOW right now and forever” Won’t work!  Buddha lived in simpler times and the amount of information that he needed to keep in his brain was just a fraction of the information we keep in our brains.  Times were different then.  So, keep yourself organized!

I decided one day that I was tired of living everywhere but where I was and I did just stop and decide to live in the moment.  I found that it had its down side. After all when you have your own business and you tell a client, in the moment, “Sure I will email that to you as soon as we are done” well when you are done, that moment has passed and you have forgotten all about emailing anything.  You are blissfully living in the moment and out of left field your client calls and says “Hey, YOU SAID……….” People just do not understand that you are living in the moment and the moment passes and it just did not get done!
So here is what I did, I got a very detailed schedule and a large stack of sticky notes!  Sticky notes are the best invention for the “moment livers” of the world.  We can be in the moment and write ourselves a note and forget about it until the scheduled time of note reading, Brilliant!!!  I have a very detailed schedule and I write in my appointments and note reading times each day and after I do I forget about them until the time that they arrive.  Well, that is not entirely honest, I look at my schedule just before I go to bed at night so I know if I have to get up early and moving or not.  I have missed appointments.

So with a little planning and accurate scheduling and very good note taking, YOU TOO, can be one of the lucky few who have mastered the art of LIVING IN THE MOMENT!
