A Life Worth Living



Just for today I will… is an easier mantra to recite and uphold than deliberating about my flaws. In fact, I have begun to awake each day with this statement of action to build momentum towards that which I would like to build a foundational change. I realize that I am not suppose to be perfect; no one is but just for today I will trust myself enough to trust my own intuition.


Stop listening to negative thoughts! Life experience guarantees that we will attract that which becomes our focus. If your focus is to graduate from from a program however, your constant thought is: Am I worthy enough, Am I skilled enough…your vibratory thoughts contradict your desired intention. So, the question sits in the shadows waiting to be asked: How can one create a purpose driven life focused with desired intent?

Start with the small things in life that make life worth living! Build yourself up by defining your worth one step at a time. Trying to tackle it all at once often times becomes a wrestling match. Instead of beating yourself up realize that just for today is enough of a task to try something new. Allow yourself to open to small successes each day knowing that with time you will begin to try on a new definition of self worth.

You Have Done Enough for Today!

Rose bud

Journeying through the seasons of life, we often times cling tenaciously to what we know to be familiar. It is instructive if not chilling to note that in the floral shops the roses that do not open are referred to as bullets. They are discarded after a time if not purchased. These buds have turned in on themselves so tightly that they can never release their sweet fragrance…
Consider the unfinished aspects of your life that you have sealed away. Is now the time to nurture those areas into full bloom? If not, can you reconstruct new scaffolding in your life that will support your desires?

Let’s take a look at how you structure your daily life. Organization, does it exist in your life? Too much or too little can create an imbalance. Scheduling time for tasks and time for play is necessary to creating a life worth living. Taking time for you to BE You is an essential ingredient to tasting the sweet nectar life has to offer. Seriously it’s not an enjoyable life if you are living on auto-pilot.

The sweet fragrance and colour of life is found in our trials as well as our triumphant moments. Life as a tendency to reintroduce us, time and time again, to our unfinished work; as if to deliver a second, if not third chance to demonstrate what skills we have acquired. Our blossoming is a developmental process that unfolds along life’s journey. Therefore, when we are in greatest need, it is nearly impossible to view ourselves with compassion from the slit of a narrowed mind, tensed for battle.  Surrendering to the great mystery that lies before us requires us to widen our perspective.


Autumn inspires us to look to nature for its secrets of the cycles of life. A fresh, new perspective on life comes to fruition during this time. Broaden your focus as you rediscover your own self-perspective. Now, with compassion you may begin to relax your blooms as you begin to unfold your petals. Release your sweet fragrance!
