Life is many moments in which you can choose to dream and talk about your dream. When you envision it, you make it possible. But to make it real, you have to schedule it. Please do not stop reading because you believe this is going to turn into a lecture or a seminar or worse. Tony Robbins and so many others have built their businesses on thoughts like these because they are needed, but I want to take a different approach. Making your dream a reality is a big step but the first thing is to find the dream. What will make your life better? Many will not take the time to find that dream, identify it, and then move onto the step of envisioning it. In a way, I am telling you to daydream, see the dream in your mind’s eye. Some will tell you not to share the dream, but that is up to you. Some of us need to SHARE to make the dream real, and it is not just accountability. Accountability is good, but, if the dream is real, you will hold yourself accountable. And that personal accountability, remembering your Higher Power within you, is within you. If you have found your dream, and you envision it, scheduling it is good. But I am going one step further…I have had a very busy, productive year with a dream that I had not planned to undertake at all. And there have been major obstacles in spite of my obsession for planning. But I have stayed on my path without compromising. I have learned much about those who appeared to care about my dream, and I have learned their real motivation as well as mine. And the vision is becoming real every day. Now I am learning to trust the inner wisdom, I am sharing the inner wisdom of Ageless Women of Wisdom (AWW), and I am not pushing myself on the path but listening to the inner wisdom giving me the directions of what to do with each moment knowing that a total schedule does not always work for me because I am on my path and I am wise enough to know that what inner wisdom tells me is the way to proceed! And I know that all is well and each step for AWW is appearing as it should!
Sometimes, there is no other choice but to trust your inner wisdom. That is today!
I am very dependent upon my MacBookPro. It is a part of me just like my car.
So, when it does not work as expected, it gives me a little mental shudder. I am better than I used to be…I know the world is not coming to an end. But it is close…
So, when I use conventional wisdom to overcome the hiccup the Mac is suffering, and it does not work, then I ask others; and this morning that did not work. So, I found the diagnostics test to do it myself. It did not appear to be working the way the diagnostics said it should; now, do I panic? No, I try the process again the way I started doing first thing this morning. It worked. Safari did not shut itself down. Ok, what was the lesson I learned.
Technology is not a part of my lifelong learning. I was born too early. So I do panic. But I have found that the Universe, even when it left me totally unscathed during Mercury Retrograde these past weeks, wants to see how far I will trust my inner wisdom. That is what happened today : I pushed myself further than ever before. Yes, I did. And I won! Thank you to the Universe for the push–it just increases my confidence.
Making decisions is easy for me…usually! But with the New Year, there were so many choices to use for my first blog of 2016. And then there were so few if I was going to stay positive and move forward with love.
What has been top of mind is a leftover from 2015…It is a “WTF” situation where I was presented an opportunity, courted fast and furious along the road to realization, lied to by a principal I would be tied to for almost a year, and then “nothing” even with my appropriate followup. The opportunity, in my realm of possibilities, died with the falling of the ball in Times Square at midnight. It was an easy decision for me: Did I really want to work with such a situation? WTF
But that decision led to another major topic to blog about: following Divine Guidance, which in the above case was to not be sidetracked away from my mission and purpose in life: EMPOWER Excellence. That was in my heart and soul from the beginning of the above escapade. It was a temptation that I was not meant to give into, and, because it looked like I was caving, the Universe stepped in. No longer WTF! It now became GRATITUDE!
Another possibility to blog about was to eliminate poor language choices, such as any post that included the word F_ _ _! And several posts lately included that word, but no more.
SO THE DECISION TO USE THE THEME OF “INNER WISDOM” became the choice. After all, it is the foundation of decision making. Listening to my inner wisdom has become easier and easier the wiser I have become. It comes with experience… But it is the wise thing to do as I start 2016 and as I want to be a mentor, a role model, and a good person, not in the eyes of others but in the eyes of my heart and soul!
