A Loving Mentor

An excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts follows.

Your intuition can be like your big buddy hanging out with you all the time. Really, you’re never alone. Your own always present, patient, and calm mentor who wants only the best for you is there for you all the time in the form of intuition. Your intuition always looks out for your best interests. Your intuition whispers ideas for you to consider. They are wonderful ideas. Ideas of lovely things to notice. Ideas that are solutions to questions you ponder. Ideas of inspiration to take action. They are funny ideas just to make you smile and remember the love. Ideas that encourage you to enjoy the moment.

Easy Does It

An excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts follows.

In relationships, learn to give very little or no attention to what you don’t want to see more of. Doing this may seem counter-intuitive because bringing attention to what we don’t like and starting a discussion about what others should do differently is a more common strategy. Realize that talking about what is not wanted gives intentional focus to it, and soon that unwanted behavior seems more significant and harder to ignore.

Instead, try a practice of not initiating and not encouraging further discussion about things that aren’t appreciated. Instead, have a key phrase at the ready to say to yourself such as “easy does it,” “back off, Tiger,” or “I can only change me.” Identify and use a phrase to remind yourself to change your direction of focus to something that you do want.

The Celebration Affirmation

An excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts follows.

I don’t know why I waited so long to celebrate life: life’s adventures, life’s events, life’s connections, life’s relationships, life’s fun.

The now is what matters most. Now I enjoy. Now I learn. Now I love. Now I heal. Now I live. Now I know how to use my emotions. Now I control my focus. Now I look for thoughts that feel good. Now I take inspired action. Now is a celebration of life.

It feels good to be confident. It feels great to appreciate today. Now I look forward to a future filled with what I want. I know I want more love, joy, trust, and kindness. I want more to enjoy. I want more of life’s adventures.

I know that life is a process and it can be a joyful one. I know life can amaze me with beauty and love. I know life can get better and better. The celebration continues now.

Life is About

An excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts follows.

Life is about wanting and growing. You will be better tomorrow than you are today if you can go with the flow of that.

It is good to want. It is good to allow. It pulls life through you. You want more and that is the juice of life.

Can you enjoy the wanting of what you want? Don’t pine away for it! Be glad there are things on your want list. Be glad you want to get better at something or that you want to feel something more. That is a sign you have more living to do.

Now, enjoy what you want in your mind before you even have it.

Tiny and Powerful Shifts

An excerpt from my book Bliss Or Bust: Uplifting Thoughts follows.

There is power in tiny mindset shifts. Like a breath of fresh air, you can turn a habitual thought around — and it doesn’t take much. With clarity of intention and presence of mind, you can make new distinctions that change your whole perspective.

Knowing the feeling you are seeking makes all the difference. Now you know what thoughts to keep and reproduce. Once that tiny shift in perspective is found, it brings a refreshing outlook that has the power to help you improve your results across the board.
