I have heard it said a million times, “Life is what you make of it.” Really? I have always found that statement to be so aggravating and down right condescending until, one day, I sat down and pondered what those words actually meant to me.
After several personal ‘moments’ complete with tears, emotional outbursts, and triumphant epiphanies, I came up with my own way of interpreting this wisdom without being in judgement of the lessons that were revealed after I decided to surrender to the currents of life. Now, surrender didn’t mean I was to give up and throw in the towel or to just accept my lot in life and become a statistic or a door mat to the emotional vampires or habitual takers, matter of fact, it was just the opposite. I found a source of spiritual gold that became the never-ending treasure trove of internal happiness, steadfast clarity, and unwavering strength to go after what I truly wanted from life.
My insights translated to 3 Powerful Tools that I use every day to stay emotionally focused, spiritually centered, and soulfully connected by releasing all expectations. I discovered there was only one rule for the magic to happen; I was to stay open-minded in the continual free-fall of unlimited potential.
I have always believed that I am part of a whole, but chose to incarnate here on earth as an individual soul with a divine purpose. In order to succeed in my mission of self-discovery I must do my part. I must show up every day ready to do the next right thing which, in turn, allows me to calmly, and intelligently, seize all opportunities that arise from utilizing the 3 Powerful Tools that have guided me in building the life of my dreams.
