Today, I stand for good. Today I stand for love. Today I stand for peace. Today I stand for prosperity. Today I stand for laughter. Today I stand for compassion. Today I stand for being my best self and shining bright. Today, as I shine bright, I invite and allow others to shine bright too. Today, I simply stand up and take notice of the wonders and miracles of my life and life in general.
Today, I ask you to look in the mirror. To truly look in the mirror and ask yourself, what do I stand for? You and I aren’t that different. I am sure we both stand for peace, prosperity, love and goodness. Perhaps we discuss these stances differently. You can choose to stand up for what you want in your world: pro peace, pro health, pro love, pro abundance, and pro compassion. Or you can choose your stance of being what you don’t want: the fight against war, the fight against cancer, the fight against, poverty, the fight against (insert the name here) inequality.
Today I ask you to stand up, look in the mirror, and declare what you DO want in your life. Choose from this day forward to stand up to what you do want. If you are against cruelty/war/cancer/hatred etc., find the opposite of those beliefs and be for them. Be for compassion/peace/health/love. Stand up and focus your attention to what you do want and recognize your contrasting experiences (what you don’t want) simply as guidelines to put you back on track of living your highest self.

For the next week, I invite you to stand up for:
Peace: Give your attention to each peaceful moment you experience and those peaceful experiences will grow.
Love: Give your attention to each loving moment you experience and those loving experiences will expand.
Hope: Give your attention to each hopeful moment you experience and those hopeful experiences will thrive.
Abundance: Give you attention to each abundant moment you experience and those abundant experiences will flourish.
Mostly, I invite you to stand up for you. Stand up and be proud of yourself for choosing to live the life of your dreams. Stand up and be proud for the person you are today and the person you are becoming as each time you choose better thoughts, you are standing up to your highest vision of yourself.
Until next week, simply stand up.
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
