Other People's expectations

Don't get overwhelmed by other peoples expectations of what you should be doing. Your live is your own to do the things that bring joy and worth to you and your living. Choose things that are good and have meaning and those around you will see it's worth and feel the good. How can they not support that?

Live a great life with gusto and meaning!

Personal History

We all have a personal history. The important thing to remember is that no matter what has happened to us in the past, it has brought us to where we are and given us the experience we need to move forward. Some of us blame our past for holding us back in the present. Don't get stuch in this kind of cycle. embrace you past and love it rather than curse it. It has made you the person you are today. Now let it go and live today in the space of today with your eye pointed toward the future.

No matter what it was, your history is important!

boat wake

Today's reading was comparing our lives to a boat and it's wake. The wake is what is left following the boat but it doesn't drive the boat. So our past shouldn't drive our lives. We can learn from our past but should always be driven by what we want to create for our future.

Focus on the the things you really want in your life and move forward toward that goal in whatever manner you can today. Even if that step is very small it will still give you motion toward what you want to see happen.

Happy forward movement!

wow, it's been a really long time

I actually forgot I created this blog. How sad is that. I want to share the things that I am reading and my thoughts about them. I always have two books going at the same time. One for sheer pleasure and one to feed my soul. The books I want to talk about here are my soul books. Right now I'm reading "There's A Spiritual Solution To Every Problem" by Wayne Dyer. I've read several of his books and always enjoy them. I needed a boost in this department and I must say that my spirit has been lifted back in place. It is a blessing.

The topic of the section I'm reading now is about avoiding what you don't want. It helps me to keep fresh in my mind the work I need to do with my thoughts and beliefs. I get lazy about it when I stay away from the works that feed my soul.

I hope you (if there are any readers out there) are remembering to feed your soul with nourishing works of writing.
