Notice how you feel so much better when you're at a place that you just love to hang out at and you vibe with. Maybe it's your favorite coffee shop, the beach or at your favorite bookstore. Got the feeling? Now, how can you bottle up that feeling and bring this into your everyday life?
You are part of the Universe and the Universe is part of you. What you put out into the Universe and the vibrational energy that you feel and create, that is coming back to you. Is your energy and vibrations in alignment with what you want to send out to the Universe and what you want to have come back to you?
That is the law of attraction and it is always at work.
Being true to who you are with no apologies is beauty. Being kind to others is beauty. Being courageous and having strength is beauty. Allowing yourself to let your guard down is beauty. Owning who you are, that is just straight up, badass, next level, own who you are AF beauty. It's not conceit — you can be confident and classy at the same time. Own it!
The single most important thing that you can do right now if you're feeling stuck is to start moving. Pick yourself up and go. Go for a test drive. You don't want to overwhelm yourself which can hinder your progress. Don't expect drastic changes and go from zero to one hundred. Just like driving a new car, get comfortable in the speed you're in and when you're ready, move over into the fast lane.
There is nothing wrong with wanting things. In fact, we live in a world of abundance. The problem lies when we think we'll "be happy when" we get what it is that we want. When you are chasing for more things to reach a level of happiness then you will always be reaching for more and no matter how big your goals are and you achieve it, you're still not happy.
You need to stop asking for permission to be who you're meant to be. Be unapologetically yourself. Stop looking for approval from others. The only approval you need comes from within. It's freeing and liberating to be who you are and feel like you don't owe it to the world to apologize for it. We need to stop caring about what others think about us and what we pursue in our lives more than what we think about ourselves.
Creating starts with your thoughts and those thoughts are the seeds. Then, those thoughts turn into a vision, what you can see before it's even happened. You start taking inspired action. You're inspired by your vision and you take action to move you closer to your desire. Your beautiful field is your life. It's being cultivated by the seeds you've been planting. Now, the luscious strawberries is the goal. The strawberries are your desires and goals you want to achieve. What are the seeds you'll be planting?
I've talked to many people about the subject of happiness. I've come to realize, from my own curiosity, when I asked people the question, "What makes you happy?" that it doesn't come from how much money they have or material things they possess. The common answer they gave me was not surprising at all, but made complete sense:
Happiness comes from the experiences of doing things, creating value and helping others.
Few slow down enough to enjoy the moment they're in. Most people, including myself, are so busy being busy that we forget about what's going on now. Wherever you're at in this moment, and whatever it is you're doing, live in the now and embrace it.
