Lead With Love

Standard

I can’t remember where I first read it but someone sent out a challenge to take one day to do everything from a place of love. That’s easy I thought as I quietly whispered challenge accepted.

 I started the day picking up everyone else’s stuff. I was irritated and caught myself gasping as I asked myself, are my thoughts and actions coming from a place of love? Next I went on a walk and I was dragging myself through the motions. Was I walking from a place of love?

I had no idea how difficult it was to be in a loving place for an entire day. I failed miserably and today I accept the challenge again. I can do this. With practice mindfulness, patience and perseverance, I will lead with love. Now, more than ever it is so important to listen to what is going on inside your heart and mind. I believe most of us are negative and miserable and we aren’t even aware of how it affects our own life and the people we claim to love around us. 

Be accountable for your everything. Your thoughts, actions and energy are not confined to you alone. Know the power you have and use it to make the best possible difference in the world. You’re a rockstar. Go lead with love.

Practice Gratitude

Standard

Today I am trying to focus on the good things I often take for granted. I cheered as I approached a green light on the way to dropping off my son at school this morning. I could get aggravated that 8 were red or I could celebrate that one was green. It all comes down to refocusing the mind to shed things in a positive light. It doesn’t happen over night and it certainly doesn’t happen without practice and consistent effort. Notice one thing to be grateful for that you may have missed every other day and don’t forget to come back and leave a comment to let us know what it is. Have a great day today!
