Reflections – What do you see

Reflections – What do you see

What does your reflection look like? And do you care? Is it your image that you see. Is it your actions that you notice. Do you have the ability – to see your own uniqueness and beauty.

About 10 years or so ago, my children were playing travel soccer, I would go to the games and cheer them on. One day however, I went to watch a game where I was not emotionally attached to any player, and noticed how the parents were acting while cheering on their children. It was not a pretty site, and after a moment, a harsh reality hit me –  I look the same way while cheering on my own children and team. In my mind I thought that I was being supportive, encouraging the children to do their best, and overly enthusiastically applauding their successes. It was toooooo much and, It was my first real glimpse into my own internal awareness. 

As we move through life we sometimes live in our own head, and we lose the awareness of not only how we are in this world, but of our own true self. How do we really live and interact with those around us. Who are we deep in our core.

So my challenge for you today dear readers, is to start looking within, start paying attention to those automatic reactions, and habits. Start asking yourself why.  Why am I doing what I’m doing.  Do my action serve myself or others – simply – just start noticing.

Life’s Purpose

I always believed that I was destined for some kind of greatness, but I think I use to think of it as some sort of notoriety, or fame. As I’ve aged I’ve come to realize that the greatness isn’t about celebrity, notoriety, or attaining great wealth but it’s about living your life greatly everyday, in every action. And, it’s not because I haven’t achieved the celebrity level of Oprah ;), but because we all have our own life’s purpose, and in someones life we will make a difference – we matter, everyday. Make the difference a positive one.

Just a thought…

Finding your Life’s Purpose

I use to find the question – what do I want, to be the hardest question to answer. My mind would instantly think of all the things that I didn’t want. Usually things that were in my life, or that had been in my life, stuff that just wasn’t working would keep popping up. And, I came to realize that was pretty typical for most of us.  Focusing however on what we don’t want, just brings us more of what we don’t want.  So instead, I ask myself, who do I want to be… What does my life look like… and then, What are my daily habits of this life, that make me this person.  When I ask these questions, it becomes clear of what I needed to do, to live my life purposefully.

So, – who do you want to be? What does your life look like being this person?   And, what actions do you take everyday, living your life as this person?

Now, go do it! Take action! Live it!
