Do you remember when you were a kid and you learned how to be safe by stop, drop and roll? It was to protect you from smoke inhalation by removing you from the grips of smoke and fire.
It’s a catchy phrase that has stayed with me for years and I would like to encourage you to consider adding that to your everyday life. Most likely you won’t come across a smoke filled room you need to escape from, but I suspect you come across situations that are clouded in worry, fear, negativity, hatred, etc., etc. So rather than being consumed by the gray cloud of doom, I invite you to stop, drop, and roll.
Use stop, drop and roll to continue on the path of living your best life. Stop engaging in conversations that are fear based such as how hard life is, the economy crisis, or any other conversation that brings fear in. Drop the excuses of not being good enough and roll with life rather than fighting against it. Your job is to be happy, loving, compassionate and laughing through the journey.
Affirmation: I choose peace now.
“Take a look at your natural river. What are you? Stop playing games with yourself. Where’s your river going? Are you riding with it? Or are you rowing against it? Don’t you see that there is no effort if you’re riding with your river?” ~ Frederick (Carl) Frieseke
“The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is you.” ~ Tom Bradley
“Do not think of your faults, still less of others’ faults; look for what is good and strong, and try to imitate it. Your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes.” ~ John Ruskin
“That’s my gift. I let that negativity roll off me like water off a duck’s back. If it’s not positive, I didn’t hear it. If you can overcome that, fights are easy.” ~ George Foreman
Don’t Stop Me Now ~ Queen

Roll With It ~ Steve Winwood
For the next week I invite you to:
Stop being so hard on yourself by knowing that everything in your life is for a reason and can be changed through empowering thoughts rather than fearful ones.
Drop the excuses of not living your highest self and start appreciating exactly where you came from, where you are today, and where you are going. Through appreciation you can change your world.
Roll with life rather than fight it. Contrasting experiences serve their purpose for you to grow and evolve. They also allow the sweet experiences to even be sweeter. Roll with the peaks and valleys. Roll with the happiness and sadness. Roll with the confidence and times you may have self doubt. Roll with the knowledge that you are amazing just as you are in this moment.
Mostly, my wish is for you to be aware of where you place your focus as through awareness is where change can occur. Through awareness is where you can learn to soar where you once flew or possibly felt grounded. Through awareness you can live with peace, kindness, love, laughter, health, and absolute abundance.
Until next time, roll with it baby!
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
