When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.
I am determined to be the real me. Happy Wisdom Wednesday!
Success is doing what you want, where you want, with whom you want, as much as you want.
This does not mean you never have to do anything you don’t want to do. However, if you do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done, I believe the freedom Tony Robbins is talking about will be yours. This sovereignty over my life is what I am working toward. And I am getting closer every day. Happy Wisdom Wednesday!
You are what you are and where you are because of what has gone into your mind.
You can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind.
On this Wisdom Wednesday (and my 200th post), if you are not content with what and where you are today, I encourage you to examine what you are putting into your mind. Even if you only need some “tweaking,” changing what you feed your mind can drastically improve your life.
Here I am with more “positive” bathroom graffiti. While I don’t condone writing on other people’s property, the black sharpie on the white exposed area and the black paint… well, I couldn’t resist capturing this Wisdom Wednesday worthy quote.
You don’t need to change the world; you need to change yourself.
~Don Miguel Ruiz
Miguel Ruiz is one of my favorite authors. I especially love this quote because I spent so many years trying to change other people and circumstances (to no avail and with much frustration, of course). When I learned that the only thing I can change is myself, my life began improving. Happy Wisdom Wednesday!
Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.
― Carrie Fisher
I use this quote a lot so that I will remember it. When I am having bad thoughts about another person, I realize that I am the one housing the bad thoughts. I’m sure many times I was angry at someone who was oblivious to the fact, or who quickly forgot the incident. I don’t want that toxicity in my temple anymore. Whatever I am upset about, I let go of as quickly as I possibly can (depending how conscious I am in that circumstance). And I still have a long way to go, but I’m working on it. So whatever resentment you might be harboring… let it go, and have a wonderful Wisdom Wednesday!
