5 Ways To Make Sure You Are Taking Advantage of Life’s Opportunities

Opportunities pass us by in life. It’s that simple. Sometimes we don’t even notice them, we dismiss them as an inconvenience. Often the opportunities we do recognise, we overthink the situation and they pass us by. We are embedded in our comfort zone and we are scared to move forward, so rather than grabbing an opportunity, we let it go.

Below, you can find ways to become more open to life’s opportunities. Open your mind, eyes and heart … watch the opportunities come to you once you allow them in.

1. VISUALISE THE OPPORTUNITY YOU WANT, THEN PAY ATTENTION!

We don’t all want the same things in life, it would be a boring world if we did. So think about the opportunities you’d like to be presented with; new job, more money, holiday, new relationship etc.

Visualising and believing you already have this opportunity is a great way to attract it to you. Know what you want and then open your eyes. Opportunities will soon present themselves to you: a promotion, a new job, meeting someone.

A great way to visualise is to write down your visions, dreams, goals etc. Even create a vision board; cut out pictures from magazines or download photos from the internet, paste them onto a board and imagine that you already have these opportunities.

You have to be clear in your mind what it is you want so that the universe can deliver these opportunities to you.

2. MAKE AN EFFORT TO CONNECT AND NETWORK WITH PEOPLE

Even if you’re not the most sociable of people, there are ways to connect with the outside world. If you work in a huge corporate company, there will be ways you can talk and build relationships with other people in different departments. Make conversations when you are in the lift or passing on the stairs. A smile can lead to a, ‘Hello’, to a, ‘Gosh, it’s cold outside’ … within weeks you could be having full-blown conversations about your lives. You never know who you are talking to, you never know where these conversations can lead to … an opportunity could arise and you could be in someone’s mind, simply because you are friendly.

If you don’t have the opportunity as above, building relationships professionally online is a great way to expand your network. LinkedIn is specially designed for business. Opportunities arise through such networks constantly, but it’s about building your own profile and looking out for these opportunities, to build your own business, since now a days you can even make your business online, delivering services or selling products, since there are resources like the Best ecommerce order fulfillment companies which help businesses delivering products to clients.

Even when you’re out and about; say for example you’re in a queue, strike up a conversation with the person in front of you, or compliment a stranger on something you notice. Again, you never know who you are speaking to, you never know what opportunities could arise. And, even if no opportunities come from these random conversations, you will feel good. Passing on the love to others; making them feel good will inevitably make you feel good. Your feel-good vibes will reflect out to the universe … and the universe will deliver more feel-good vibes back.

3. VOLUNTEER / JOIN A NEW CLUB

Are you passionate about something? Animals? Reading? Sewing? Exercise?

You could volunteer some of your time at a local project. There are plenty of projects looking for volunteers, from animal rescue places to vulnerable people projects. What makes you happy? You never know who else is volunteering. You never know the opportunities that can arise.

If the above doesn’t float your boat, how about joining a club; a book club, a running club or flower club, these are just examples. Set-up your own club if you can’t find something locally. You will be amazed at the type of people you will meet, and these meetings could lead to something bigger and better.

4. SAY YES!

Sounds simple, right? But how many times have you said, ‘Yes,’ to something that makes you feel uncomfortable? How many times have you stopped yourself doing something because it scares you? Makes you nervous? How many times have you thought, ‘I wish I could, but I just can’t?’ This is where you have to let go of your inhibitions. Your barriers to opening up will be preventing opportunities coming your way. This is the time to take yourself out of your comfort zone and allow opportunities in.

5. SELL YOURSELF WHEREVER YOU GO!

Sound egotistical?

It doesn’t need to be. You don’t need to be conceited, you just need to be aware that you want people to think of you if an opportunity was to arise. For example; you want your boss to think of you when an opening for manager arises. Or even on a relationship level, you want Linda, from accounts, to think about you when her nephew becomes single.

It’s about being out there. It’s about others knowing about you. Selling yourself isn’t about talking all about YOU! YOU! YOU! It’s about interacting with others. Selling yourself is not only about your skills and abilities, it’s about your personality and character. Linda, from accounts, may like the idea that you’re not lazy and you’re very good at your job, but if you come across cold and insensitive, then you may be on her mind when her nephew is single, but it will be for the wrong reason! She’ll be keeping you far away.

Personality and character has much to do with success, in all areas of our lives. If people receive good vibes from yourself, they will automatically remember you. So wherever you go, smile, chat and be a bundle of light that people can’t forget.

Remember; the universe will deliver more light to you when you are shining yours.

Uplifting Quotes To Keep Your Mind Positive

Are you controlling your mind, or is it controlling you?

Our minds are so powerful, you might not even know the answer to this question.

We spend much of our days going from one thing to another, daily tasks being fulfilled, starting our day on the mission we intended and when the day is over, sometimes we’ve achieved that mission and other days, not so much. We can end our days tired and worn out, wondering what it’s all about. This is where you’re letting your mind control you. You are letting your thoughts wander, we let our outer world take over our inner selves. We get caught up in life, expectations, demands, deadlines, pressures that we forget actually we have control.

We have the ability to control our lives, control our thoughts, control our destination.

We get to choose HOW we respond to things that are happening in our lives.

When you really think about this, it’s extremely powerful!

The Law of Attraction is always working … therefore whatever you’re thinking about, you are putting out to the Universe and the Universe is delivering those thoughts back to you in situations, circumstances, etc. So, again, if you read the imagination blog post, have a go at playing the imagination game.

Usually, we can take command of our thoughts because we notice our mood isn’t as high as we would like it to be … if you’re feeling this way, ask yourself why you feel this way … but then don’t let yourself dwell on this. I understand it’s not as easy as, ‘snap out of it,’ that’s why thinking in a positive light is something to work on for yourself. Once you start realising your negative thoughts are bringing your emotions down, you will soon be able to adapt these thoughts. The quickest way to turn this around is appreciation. Once you look at life with abundance and fulfilment, you’ll soon wipe out those feelings of lack. So train your mind to come from a place of love and gratitude and watch your world change.

My previous blog post about controlling your mind features a therapeutic writing exercise and much more, have a go now

Boost your mind and you boost your thoughts … listen to your heart not the ego!

Quotes To Show You, Laughter Will Keep You Young

Are you having enough laughter in your life?

In my previous post that I shared on laughter, I shared an article that research had shown how laughter is extremely good for us. Laughter is one of the best forms of releasing built-up anxiety and stress. Often if we’re not in a good place, the last thing we want to do is laugh. However, if we can bring ourselves out of the comfort zone of worrying and bring some lightness into our lives, you will see how laughter can help with lifting your worries.

I love this blog post by Thomas Flindt; he talks about his laughter classes and reasons why we stop laughing as we grow older.

The sound of children laughing is one of the best sounds. I love listening to my daughters playing and something setting them off laughing. Plus, they both have a way of trying to tell me a funny story, but can’t get their words out because the laughter has kicked in, this in itself makes me laugh. I truly appreciate those times and we relish in them together.

In my previous post on laughter you can take part in the therapeutic writing exercise. Ask yourself are you laughing enough? Plus, you’ll find more quotes, tips and advice on bringing more laughter into your life.

So as promised, here’s some awesome quotes to encourage more laughter into your life.

You can even visit my shop and purchase the quotes below … surround yourself with positive and fulfilling thoughts.

Remember, laughter will keep you young. So surround yourself with wonderful quotes that will help lift your spirits and remind you to look on the brighter side of life.

Quotes To Help Jump Start Your Day

Are you jumping into your life? Or are you dragging through at snail pace?

Your morning alarm goes off … how do you respond? Snooze five million times until the last second hits you? Jump for joy at your wonderful day ahead? Or somewhere in-between?

My mornings vary between all three. Sometimes I snooze simply because I’ve worked late the night before (if this is the case, whatever my work was involving, blogging, creating workbooks, marketing, writing … whichever, I would have chosen to work late as I would have been thoroughly enjoying what I was doing). So even when I snooze, it’s a nice cosy feeling, it’s not a feeling of, ‘OMG, I CAN’T FACE THE DAY!’ It’s a feeling of, I’m so lucky, I get to grab an extra few minutes kip.

Sometimes life takes over and we forget there’s so much to be excited about. If you don’t feel this, then it’s time to create something to be excited about. Imagine the universe can deliver anything you want … ANYTHING! What would you jump out of bed for? What would really get your juices pumping? What would give you a reason to not press that snooze button, unless you felt lucky enough to just press it, because you can?

If you’d like to know more about how to jump into life and ignore the fear, you can read my blog post here. It also includes quotes, tips and a therapeutic writing exercise to help you take a leap of faith.

If you’d also like to surround yourself with quotes that will remind you to take the jump, you can visit my online shop for downloadable prints.

Live life to the fullest … do what you can with what you have … be grateful for all the opportunities that come your way … jump into the opportunities that serve you! Take the leap and have faith … if you don’t jump you’ll never know how close you were to making your dreams come true.

Turn up and say YES! A to Z Inspirational Blog; Y is for Yes with Motivational Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

Y is for YES

Let’s take Eckhart Tolle’s quote and say ‘yes’ to life. So, stop what you’re doing, (which is reading this post – and I thank and appreciate you for doing so, it means the world to me that you are taking time out to join me, it truly does) but, let’s just take a second to stop reading and say ‘yes’ to life.

Here’s a little exercise; stand-up, have a little jump about, give yourself a little shake, feel the vibrations running through your hands, legs and feet … then punch the air like you’ve just been told the most exciting news ever. When you punch the air, shout ‘YES!’ Repeat this until you feel the vibes in your body lighting up. Keep shouting, ‘YES!’ until you feel it! Until you feel the shift in your mind and soul. Feel the excitement.

Now, if you’re not feeling the ‘YES!’ If you’re feeling more on the ‘NO!’ side of things, let’s look at this. It’s ok to feel as if there are more ‘Nos’ than ‘Yeses’ in your life, but the key is to not dwell on the ‘Nos’ … the key is to turn the ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’, turn these ‘Nos’ into opportunities, see the challenges, take the learning and turn these life curveballs into ‘Yeses’.

You see, whatever your thoughts, the universe is mirroring that right back to you. So, if you see these ‘Nos’ ask yourself, why is this happening? What can I take from this experience? What can I learn? What can I do differently? Believe that this, ‘No’ has happened for a reason so that you can get your ‘Yes’. Believe in that ‘Yes’. Sometimes life is a mini roller-coaster (or a humongous gigantic one) whichever we have to say ‘Yes’ and turn up. Even on those days when we feel it is impossible to say, ‘Yes’.

One of the best ways we can turn our ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’ is through gratitude. You’ll have heard me say this before and that’s because it’s true. I turned my own life around by focuses on my ‘Yeses’. Many many many moons ago, before I discovered the Law of Attraction, before I started my spiritual path and before I started surrounding myself with positivity, I was the ‘Mood-Hoover’ you’d want to avoid. Now, don’t get me wrong there was much to be ‘mood-hoovering’ about … Jeez, was there ever! However, when I realised I could change my ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’ my life changed.

Once I started to turn up and shout, ‘YES!’ Once I sought the ‘Yeses’ I bought more ‘Yeses’ to me. This is one of the reasons I write my blog, because this stuff works! It really works guys! I want you to have the ‘Yeses’ in your life. I’m drawn to write weekly about inspiring you because I truly believe, I had to have my ‘Nos’ so I could turn them around into ‘Yeses’ and then spread the word that the Law of Attraction is always working, and the universe is always responding …  so if we concentrate on our ‘Nos’ we will get more ‘Nos’ – so turn those ‘Nos’ into ‘Yeses’.

Seek the ‘Yeses’ in life. Say ‘Yes’. Turn up. Because YOU GOT THIS

 

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s think about your present ‘Yeses’

You may still be in the ‘No’ mode at the moment but truly think about things that are good in your life.

Start by writing a gratitude list.

Take a small gratitude list; write down 20 things you appreciate in your life. When you’ve done this list, say each one aloud, then do the exercise at the beginning of this post; punch the sky and shout ‘YES!’ Do this repeatedly, every morning this week.

FEEL THE POWER OF SAYING YES! When you feel your yeses, you’ll receive more!

Love & happiness to you always

How To Concentrate On Your Victories, Not Your Defeats – A to Z Inspirational Blog; V is for Victory with Victorious Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

V IS FOR VICTORY

We can feel victory in certain areas of our life, but our aim is to feel victorious in all areas of our life. Now, yes, this may mean hard work is needed in certain areas. But read the quote above …

I do love this quote, because if you have the fight in you; if you refuse to give up on your dreams, your soul purpose, you will achieve it. You must believe in yourself. You must believe that victory will be yours. You must take your life and live it to the fullest. You can feel victorious if you are working towards something because every day you will achieve another goal; every day you are a step closer. Every day you must reflect on the victory of your success for that day. A daily victory will lead to a life of victory.

To achieve that victorious feeling, you must believe you can do this. You must have faith in your ability. You must keep striving forward and know that you are going to win. Think about the Law of Attraction, whatever your thoughts you are attracting, you are the creator of your life. If you think you can win, you will … if you think you can’t win, you won’t! You will put the effort in where it’s needed if you want to feel victorious. Putting the effort in tells the universe you are willing to work towards your goals … the universe will respond with opportunities to help move you forward.

Talk positively about your goals, drive yourself forward and speak only about your victories, no matter how small they are. Don’t talk about situations not working. Don’t focus on the things that could go wrong. Think about, talk about and embrace all the wonderful things that will go right. Focus on the end goal and the winning. Focus on the victory. If you focus on victory you will bring that to you, if you focus on defeat you will bring that to you. So it’s important to check your thoughts and embrace the feeling of winning, embrace the feeling of achieving, embrace the feeling that you are victorious.

 

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s focus on the victories in life

This week’s exercise is to write daily. At the end of each day write about the achievements you have made, what victories can be celebrated. Small steps count and if you are ticking off boxes you are moving forward.

So every day this week write about your victories. If this helps, you can continue this after the week. It’s something you could get into the habit of doing. Sometimes we feel as if we haven’t got anywhere, we have days where we feel that treadmill is just rolling on and we are just walking through life. Life is happening to us, we’re not making it happen for us … once you start to write down your daily wins you’ll be encouraged to achieve more wins. You’ll feel the surge of energy to get out there and make life happen for you. Go and be victorious!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

So be inspired daily with this

How To Let Your Uniqueness Shine – A to Z Inspirational Blog; U is for Unique with Quotes on Uniqueness and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

U IS FOR UNIQUE

I love this quote from this awesome film because it’s so true. We are all unique in our own special way. Imagine if we all had the same characters, passions, desires, dreams, goals … wouldn’t the world be a boring place? The one thing we should all aim for is love. This includes following our hearts. In some cases, this means we may be judged, however, this says more about the people doing the judging than it does about you. Who are we to judge anyone else? Who are we to say that we are better than anyone else? When we were born into this world, we were given certain talents, that I like to call gifts. We know what these gifts are by our desire to fulfil certain passions. Our aim, while we are here on this physical plane, is to follow these passions and make a difference in this world, through love and understanding.

Anyone who understands the spirituality of a higher power will understand how we are born into this world as souls presented in the human form; our souls have decided we needed to be here at this particular time. It’s only as we grow, spirituality is drawn away from us, as we have to conform to societal rules. Rules that humans have put in place. Rules that have become a norm. Trust me when I say these rules are of human-doing, not God’s. God only comes from a place of love, with that love, he gave us free will. Unfortunately, that free will hasn’t been used to express the love, that was intended, by many. The judgement of others is not coming from a place of love. It’s important that we realise we are all equal, no-one is better than anyone else, we are all unique in our own way. Many people come from a place of fear because they are scared to show their uniqueness.

Fear is the thing that will hold you back from being the unique individual you were put here to be. Once you can let go of this fear, embrace the love you were born with, you will find your uniqueness and you will thrive forward. You will place your faith in a higher power and you will move forward as the wonderful special individual that you are. Once you realise we all come from the same place, we are all here on one mission only; to spread love and joy, you can’t help but understand how your passion (your gift) links into this mission. Once you are following your passion, once you are doing what you love, you can’t help but feel the joy and you can’t help but spread this further afield. Your passion will always inspire and influence someone else. You will be spreading the love without knowing you are doing it.

So, when you use your uniqueness to spread love, not judging others, not allowing the judgement of others to affect you, you let go of fear. You will understand that we are all special. It comes down to choices … choosing to see the special uniqueness of every individual you come into contact with, choosing to shine as the unique person you were put on this earth to be and choosing to embrace the love that comes with this wonderful outlook on life. Embrace your uniqueness, don’t let anyone take that away from you … and don’t you take it away from anyone else.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s write about your uniqueness …

You realise you’re unique, right? You understand you have a magic inside of you that needs to shine, yes?

You must feel this … if you don’t feel it, ask yourself why are you the same as everyone else? Those beliefs, by the way, is just your fear talking, your ego stopping you from expressing the unique and wonderful individual that you are.

In this week’s exercise write about yourself from a 3rd person’s point of view. NOTE:  THIS CANNOT BE NEGATIVE!!! No negativity is allowed in these sessions. Write about yourself as your loved ones see you … all positive … write down all the good qualities people see in you.

Now keep this with you and remind yourself daily, with these notes, about the wonderful, unique person that you are. Read this daily until you believe it, you own it, you are proud of your uniqueness. Read this daily until you feel the love.

Believe in yourself … you got this!

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

How To Start Thriving In Life – A to Z Inspirational Blog; T is for Thrive with Quotes on Thriving and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

T IS FOR THRIVE

It’s hard to thrive at something if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing … this works in all areas of your life. You may find that you are thriving in one area but not in another. Sometimes the areas that we are not thriving in as much can affect other areas of our lives. For example, we may have a wonderful relationship but we are not happy in our work. This work situation may affect your relationship; if you feel tired, worn-out, stressed etc. you won’t want to make the effort with your relationships when you are away from work. When you feel unhappy in one area of your life, it has a chain reaction to the other areas of your life. It’s sometimes hard to switch our feelings off when we are unhappy.

So, what can we do to thrive in every situation?

If we can change it … we should! If we can’t change it, then we can change our attitude and feelings towards it. For example, you may love your work but you may have issues with people you work with. You can’t change these people. Just like people can’t change you (or shouldn’t change you). What we can do is put out to the universe that we want to change our attitude, we want to thrive, we want to live a more peaceful life … You’d be amazed when you start thinking about thriving in certain situations you bring more to you to thrive on.

So how we do we go from ‘just living’ to thriving? If you read my blog posts, you’ll know it comes down to gratefulness, being grateful for the good in your life will help develop your gratefulness throughout other areas of your life and the universe responds by giving you more to be grateful for. Once you become more grateful your attitude automatically changes and this will bring you an abundance of things to be grateful for … an abundance of things to thrive from.

Research, by Daniel Brown, a professor, psychology lecturer, at the University of Portsmouth, showed that a person must possess some (but not necessarily all) certain characteristics to be able to thrive in life, you can see the interesting research here.

Sometimes we feel we have nothing to thrive towards. There are problems, issues, life is just going along on its treadmill and we wonder what it is we should be thriving towards. The best way forward with this is to change your attitude towards your life. Look for the love. Take one of the situations that you feel is unthriving, and ask yourself, ‘If I can’t change it, what can I do to feel better about it?’ Once you start to thrive in one area of your life, the others areas will fall into place too. It’s amazing how our feelings towards a certain life situation can take up our whole being. So rather than a negative situation taking up your whole being, work on your attitude towards these feelings and watch how your world changes.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s write about thriving in life.

Take one situation in your life that you wish you could thrive in … this could be work, relationships, hobbies … anything where you feel you are lacking. An area of your life you wish you could improve.

Now, free-write how you would feel if you could thrive in this area of your life. Visualise how you would feel and then write these feelings down. How would it feel to get out of bed every morning, thriving in just this one area of your life? Now imagine how this would impact the other areas of your life and write down the positivity this could bring to all areas of your life. Write down the chain reaction you think this could have. Write down how you could thrive in other areas of your life if you made changes to one area.

Now … ask yourself, how can I make these changes? When will I make these changes? Put a plan in place to start thriving … you got this!

 

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

So be inspired daily with this

Follow Your Soul And Live A Divine Life – A to Z Inspirational Blog; S is for Soul with Soul Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

S IS FOR SOUL

I love this quote by Marianne Williamson. Our souls have travelled through many lives. The body in which we live is simply the home for our soul. Our soul represents who we truly are. If you have an interest in something, you will more than likely find this interest relates to a past life interest, because it is our soul that holds our passions. Regression is a hypnotic state that can connect your soul to your previous lives. This may all sound far-fetched to those who are not spiritual or religious believers, however, there are certain things in life we are scared of but we’re not sure why, or things we are drawn to. These are usually linked to our past lives. There is a TV programme called, The Ghost Inside My Child, which features children who remember their past lives. Some of the children could describe in-depth details about their previous life. Some parents researched their child’s claims, such as names and events, and found evidence that what their child was telling them, was true.

Dr Wayne Dyer’s book, Memories of Heaven, is a collection of stories from children who remember their past lives. It’s a brilliant and intriguing read. After reading this I wanted to talk to as many children as I could to try and see if they could remember anything. As babies, our soul starts the life journey again, but because our souls haven’t been trained into the conformity of society, as babies, we are open. It’s only as we grow that we are influenced by society and our minds shut-off from miracles and magic … shut-off from the prospect that we are much bigger than ourselves. That we are one.

Sometimes we are drawn to certain people. We hear the term, ‘soulmate’, usually referred to when lovers meet, however, I believe we have a few soulmates that extend beyond the ‘lover relationship’, it could be family members, friends or people who we meet in passing who have been in our previous lives and were needed for a short amount of time in this life. Others join us in this life early on and stay with us. Whoever we meet, we decide this before our soul arrives here. Just as our soul drives us towards our passions, which is also a decided and known factor before we arrive here on this physical plane.

So imagine that all you needed to focus on was your soul’s desire. Where would your soul take you? What would make you jump out of bed every morning? What are your passions, dreams, goals etc.? These are the things your soul wants you to do. Some of it may not be easy to achieve, in fact, it may seem impossible, but you have that urge and desire for a reason … it’s your soul’s reason for being. It’s the reason your soul chose this life. There are always reasons behind something happening. I’m not a believer in coincidences, I believe we are put in certain situations through the divine, angels and universe to bring our attention to certain things. Often as a wake-up call … to get us to think about our journey. If something happens that seems like a coincidence, we may talk about it with friends and speculate how weird it is. This is us trying to understand the universe at work, something has our attention and for good reason, it’s our job to figure out what that reason is.

When we arrive on this physical plane, Earth, we already have ambitions of the life we will fulfil, the world is an open book and we arrive with every intention of making this life mean something. As mentioned above, as we grow this is often forgotten as we fit into the mould that is expected of us, but it’s never too late to break that mould. It’s never too late to listen to your soul, listen to the universe, listen to the angels, they will be constantly trying to guide you in the right direction, but it’s up to you to listen and watch out for the signs.

God gave us free will, so we can make choices about the life we want to live while we are here. But what will make you happier and more content than you can imagine is following your soul’s desire. Your purpose. Your passion. Anyone who listens to the divine within will live a happier, more fulfilled life.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise let’s discover your soul’s purpose …

Before we do any free writing, I’d like you to sit quietly for 5 or 10 minutes. While you are sitting quietly try to connect with your soul. This means going deep into yourself, understanding what it is you are doing here, what is your soul telling you … ask yourself, why are you here? What’s your purpose … you will have one.

Once you feel you have connected, write down what you were feeling, don’t think about it, just free write these feelings down. Just express yourself freely and allow your soul to come forward. Allow yourself the freedom to listen to your heart. Where is it taking you? Are you fulfilling your purpose? If not, what can you do to fulfil that purpose? What changes can you make? What steps can you put in place so you can follow your soul purpose?

 

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

Become A More Radiant You; A to Z Inspirational Blog; R is for Radiance with Radiance Quotes and Therapeutic Writing

A-Z Inspirational Journey 

This week’s inspirational word

R IS FOR RADIANCE

Do you know anyone who pours with radiance? Is there anyone who sticks in your mind as a positive, happy person who always looks on the bright side life? Wouldn’t you like to be that person? Wouldn’t you like to be the person who shines so bright, people need sunglasses on to talk to you. I joke … but think about it … how wonderful it would be to be the person who makes others feel great.

People who are radiant aren’t the most attractive, most beautiful on the outside … radiance doesn’t come from outer appearance, it comes from within. The most attractive and beautiful people are those who are radiant from the inside. People who share their inner radiance with others. They spread it around like glitter, their sparkle is left upon others when they leave their company.

So this may all sound fluffy and a bit far-fetched, but think about it … there are people who you will meet and they are always happy. They are always radiant and positive. What we need to understand is, these people have chosen this radiance, no matter what has happened in their life, they have chosen to be positive and spread their joy. Just because they are loving, caring and happy people, it doesn’t mean they haven’t been through any adversity, it means they have chosen to look on the bright side of life. They have chosen to live through love and gratefulness.

Audrey Hepburn, an amazing soul, once said, ‘True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.’ Here, she is talking about a woman’s radiance. Those that come from a place of love show their radiance through their actions. This doesn’t just go for women obviously, men too can be radiant. Personality and character are the things people remember. The way you made someone feel is what they will remember about you, whether you’re a man or a woman … you will be remembered for your presence.

Do you want to be remembered as the person who always had problems or the mood-hoover who sucks the life out of people with your negativity? I truly hope not … I truly hope you want to be remembered as the person who gives always, always comes from a place of love, the person people like to be around … the person that when people leave your company, they feel warm, light and refreshed.

How do you become more radiant? Again, I go back to basics, start with your gratitude list. Your gratitude list gives you a reason to be happy. Focus on what is important in your life, what do you appreciate? What makes your life amazing? What makes you happy? When you focus on the good in life, you can’t help but become more radiant. Your joy will seep through and it is your job to spread this joy. It is your job to soak up your radiance and sprinkle it around.

In this week’s therapeutic writing exercise imagine you a bright light that inspires others.

You are shining from within, your glow is contagious, you spread love, joy and happiness wherever you go. People want to be like you. You inspire people. You are the person that makes people feel wonderful when they’ve left your company …

Free-write about how this feels. How would it feel to make people feel like they too can shine within? They too can be as radiant as you? This exercise is about feeling that joy from within, this exercise is about feelings … how wonderful it would be to spread your radiance. Feel it … and write about it.

Remember: Positive messages throughout the day, helps the negative thoughts stay away.

So be inspired daily with this

Love & happiness to you always
