Zest for Life

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Feeling a bit on the restless side today could find yourself turning to friends to find an outlet for releasing mental or physical energy... AWESOME! So, go ahead, surround yourself with individuals that provide stimulating conversation. Think about inviting someone to watch a movie, take a stroll with you through a museum, or meet with you for a chat or a friendly debate. Or maybe you feel the desire to get out and get active. ALL THE BETTER!
If you're feeling physically energized today, you might consider asking a friend to join you for a jog or a bike ride or play something unexpected and fun like Ping-Pong, Tennis or Badminton!

Being in the company of friends always helps release our stores of mental and physical energy. Being around those we're close to stimulates and motivates us. We are inspired to take action and do things we may not have done on our own. And our friends' presence can make us feel enthusiastic because we multiply our enjoyment when we have people to share life with. Everything we do with our friends becomes infused with more pleasure. Do something with your friends today-anything from having a conversation to playing a challenging sport-and you will have found a terrific outlet for your physical and mental restlessness.

Riding the Wave of Life

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

While riding the wave of life you must also practice stillness so you can flow with, rather than resist the wave’s motion.


My life is continually in motion, buoyed by the wave that is the universe’s flow. As the wave rises and falls, I am carried forward, through life’s high and low points. The universe’s flow from time to time may take me to a place in life where I would rather not be. As tempting as it can be to fight the direction and size of this wave that propels me, riding the wave is actually intended to make life easier. When riding the wave, my life evolves naturally and with far less; minimal effort. Riding the wave, however, is not a passive experience. It is an active process that requires one to be attentive, centered, and awake. You must also practice stillness so you can flow with, rather than resist the wave’s motion.

Because life is dynamic and always changing, it is when we try to make the wave stand still or resist its direction that we are likely to get pulled under by its weight. If you try to move against the wave, you may feel as if you are trapped by it and have no control over your destiny. When you reach a low point while riding the wave and find your feet touching bottom, remember to stay standing so that you can leap forward along with the wave the next time it rises. Trying to resist life’s flow is a losing proposition and costly because you waste energy.

Riding the wave allows you to move forward without expending too much of your own efforts. When you ride the wave, you are carried by it and your head can “stay above water” as you go wherever it takes you. It can be difficult to trust the universe and let go of the urge to fight life’s flow, and you may find it easier to ride the wave if you can stay calm and relaxed. Riding the wave will always take you where you need to go.

  


Purpose; passionate about our future

Monday, July 18, 2011

Humans for the most part are not born consciously knowing what their purpose is and it must be found through exploration.


Most living things belong to a particular soul group and are born knowing their purpose in life. An animal's live is so much more simplistic; spending its day foraging for food, taking care of itself and its young, and creating a home. No one tells an animal to do this, it's all instinctive. Humans, however, for the most part, are not born consciously knowing what their purpose is.

Purpose gives our life meaning. When we discover our purpose, we can live your life with intention and make choices that serve our objective for why we are on this planet to begin with. Mind you finding our purpose is not always easy. W@e must embrace life wholeheartedly, explore many different avenues, and allow ourselves to grow through experience; choices and consequences. Our purpose is as unique as we are on an individual level and will evolve as we move through life. We don’t need anyone’s permission to fulfill our purpose either. And no one can tell us what that purpose is. Finding and fulfilling our purpose can be a lifelong endeavor.
To figure out what your purpose is, ask yourself what drives you – not what forces you out of bed in the morning, but what makes you glad to be alive. One way? Make a list of activities that you wish you were involved in or think about a career path that you would love to embark upon. These are the endeavors that can help you fulfill your purpose and bring you the most satisfaction.

Also picturing yourself working on projects that don’t interest you or fulfill your purpose, they still help satisfy your basic survival needs. Imagine how living this way each day would make you feel. Next, picture yourself devoting your time to projects that spark your imagination, inspire, excite, and satisfy you. More often than not, these activities are some of the ways that you can fulfill your life purpose. Time spent on these endeavors will never feel like a waste. Live your life with purpose, and you will feel significant and capable because every action you take and each choice you make will have meaning to it.

And when we feel inspired and passionate about our future, we can use that energy as fuel to move us forward. There ends up being a lightness and joy to everything we do and every thought we have when our futures look promising. Tasks that might normally be banal become infused with giddy excitement, as our outlook regarding our plans and goals can't help but be upbeat and hopeful. There is no limit to how much we can create in our lives when we are feeling inspired and passionate. Let your inspired thoughts about the future propel you today, and you will create more opportunities for yourself.

EMPOWERMENT

Sunday, July 17, 2011

You feel confident about your ability to deal with the world today. Perhaps your assuredness and enthusiasm are attracting new experiences and people into your life. The positive energy you put forth HAS you attracting more good into your life than you ever dreamed. Remain upbeat and optimistic regardless of people’s moods. DON'T EVER FORGET the universe reflects back to you the kind of energy that you are emanating. If you make a decision to stay positive today, the world around can respond in kind. When you radiate confidence, your assuredness is rewarded with the manifestation of what you are sure will come to pass.

When we approach the world with a positive attitude, the manifestation of blessings is a natural result. Sometimes it is simply because our joyful point of view enables us to see opportunities we might have otherwise missed. Usually, it is because our positive energy is like a beam that radiates outward, magnetizing abundance and success and love to us. Blessings flow in from every direction and continue to come as long as we can maintain our optimism. When you maintain an optimistic mind-set, it becomes difficult for anything that isn’t for your highest good to exist within the framework of your personal reality. Keep a positive and confident attitude as you go about your worldly dealings today, and you will generate a cache of blessings.

On The Receiving End

Saturday, July 16, 2011

We've all been on the receiving end of criticism or judgment, that causes us to feel a bit insecure or inadequate. Perhaps someone at work or in your personal life has made comments about you; as recently as today. You could be feeling scrutinized or think that others don't trust your capability. If this is the case today, try not to despair and consider focusing on your strengths instead. Remind yourself of the skills you possess and the work and dedication you've put into developing them. If you do receive criticism today, you might consider taking it as constructive feedback. Absorb the information that is helpful and discard the rest.

By staying focused on our strengths and capabilities, we can take criticism constructively. Keeping our strengths in mind when those around us offer feedback allows us to stay grounded so that we can hear what is being said without losing perspective. Instead of using feedback as an indicator that we are wrong or need to change ourselves, we use it as a means to grow and improve what's already great about us. Taking criticism constructively is an indicator of healthy boundaries and self-esteem. Stay positive when you receive criticism today by concentrating on your strengths, and you will be able to use everything you hear to your advantage.
