Have you ever filled your head with thoughts of if only I was younger/older, skinnier/bigger, prettier/plainer, book smart/street smart, if if if. Or I’ll be happy when I make more money, I am thinner, I am in a relationship, I have the job of my dreams. Or how about the I should have thoughts? I should have completed my degree, I should have exercised today, I should, should should. Then there is the shouldn’t that fill our heads. I shouldn’t eat that, I shouldn’t buy that, I shouldn’t, shouldn’t, shouldn’t. Frankly, all the excuses we use to hold ourselves back from living the life of our dreams is exhausting.
You are cordially invited to join me in living your best life. I can’t tell you what that looks like as the joy of living is we all desire different things so your best life will look different from others. I can tell you living your best life is filled with thoughts that empower you. It is filled with loving thoughts, happy thoughts, abundant thoughts, healthy thoughts and peaceful thoughts. Your thoughts are in the moment of today, appreciating your yesterday for bringing you to this moment, and looking forward to your tomorrows knowing that each positive thought breeds more positivity in your life. Your best life is filled with thoughts of seeing the perfection of imperfection and knowing the journey IS the living your best life. As when you are feeling good about you, others, and the world, you are living your best life.
Affirmation: I invite amazing people and experiences into my life and welcome them with open arms.

For the next week, I invite you to accept my invitation of living your best life by:
Appreciating the big and small miracles each day. When you begin to appreciate the smallest miracle, they grow and grow. Appreciate something as basic as the sun coming up each morning. It’s easy to take something that happens daily for granted, but there are parts of the world that doesn’t see the sun for a long time.
Choosing positive thoughts and feelings. You might not have control of the outer world, but you do have control of your reactions to the world around you. Choose thoughts and feelings that empower you and others.
Being aware of your conversation with yourself (what you are saying in your head) and to others. Simply be aware of your conversations and ask yourself later, without judgment, if you are empowering yourself and others by your conversations. I think you’ll find a lot of conversations are founded in fear rather than love (gossip, judgment, frustration, anger). From awareness, you can choose if it empowers or dis-empowers you.
Starting each day excited about the possibilities and potential that are ahead of you today.
Mostly, I ask you accept my invitation and say YES to living your highest self and shining bright while allowing others to shine their light bright! Perhaps we’ll create the Northern Lights worldwide.
Until next time, this is an open invitation – ALL are welcome.
Keep living big, loving big, and laughing along the journey.
