I was listening to Bryon Kellie on Oprah & friends on XM radio. She was talking about loving what is. I only caught the tail end of it, but it was enough to stay with my spirit for a couple of days now. Loving what is. What does that mean? Well she was saying that you gotta love what is, not what will be. That is a very hard concept. On the front end it makes perfect sense of course. But when you examine it it requires a suspension of old habits. I am good for for going on and on with...I'll be happy if, when and so on. Although I am getting better.
I am intrigued by this because over the last few days a light flipped on for me. I was moving forward but with a different plan in place. I guess you can say I was distracted. It was a pleasurable distraction, but a distraction nonetheless.
I am thinking about love what is because it speaks to owning your thoughts, changing your thoughts to change your life. I am a student of this. It not about success or failure, it is in the doing. It is in the becoming the kind of woman I want to be.
These last weeks have shown me that I deserve all the best and that I can achieve all that is in my heart. I just have to believe it. I just have to change my mind. The negative thoughts are invasive and easily take root. There are moments when the negative thoughts win and I surrender to them. But as a student of positive thought as a way to change your life, I quickly pull up. I could not do that a few years ago. I would be deep in depression and woe...I couldn't stand myself. Today it is different, it is very different. I am feeling so powerful and so in love with myself and my surroundings that I am transitioning. You can see it, hear it, almost taste it
Love what is. That is inspiring! It doesn't mean you don't do the work. It doesn't mean you sit on the couch...yes that would be me! It means doing the work but loving what is now. Doing the work whether it's going to the gym or working on your crafts or losing weight...that would be me loving what is. It is the journey where the most joy lies. It is the first step in this moment. It is the thought that I can DO ANYTHING!
Love what is.
