Find Your Courage

A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. William Shedd

If you made a commitment to release old ways and create new ways to live your life this year, you may be running into some inner obstacles. Maybe when you look at the changes you want to make, you feel overwhelmed. How can you change the way you live? How can you let go of what's familiar and learn new ways? That's too much to expect. Yet, in some ways, you're going to change anyway. That's just the way life is.

Even though I see how I've changed and grown through some of my challenges in the past, I still sometimes resist. The I just want to put a problem in the drawer and hope it will go away. But of course that doesn't happen. Maybe learning to accept and move on is a lifetime process--something we have to keep doing if we want a full and meaningful life. So why not put ourselves in charge of our future and create what we want instead of settling for what life hands us.

Once you make a commitment and state your intention, resistance can set in. Our ego self has a way of sabotaging our best intentions. In order to keep going, that's when you need to reach deep inside to the bigger picture of yourself and your life, and see the meaning in each challenge. Know that everything you need is within you, and awareness brings the courage you need to make the changes you want. Then resistance will diminish.

I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. Louisa May Alcott

Look at various issues in your life, and decide what you will keep, what you will release,and what new you will create. Look at your life the way it is, and imagine the way you want it. Imagination is a wonderful tool. It comes from the soul and provides vision outside of the material world and enables us to fulfill our dreams.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. Will Rogers

Remember that this is a year of opportunity to turn your life around, raise your energy vibration level, and grow spiritually. But nothing gets done unless we do it. So now is the time to move along in our year of opportunity.

I wish you beautiful creations.

Marilyn
