Weekly Intention – Faith

Thanks to Andrea at ABC Creativity for the reminder of setting a weekly intention to help guide me on the path towards my best life.

This week, the old standard of “keeping the faith” is reminding me that I don’t need to be in control of every thing in my life and that letting go is sometimes the very best choice for me to make.  Just trust in God and the Universe that my best life will unfold as I make the “right” decisions to move forward.
It’s very hard for me to let go and to trust as I have had so many people control my life–from childhood into adulthood–that I have huge boundaries where I can control my life.
Of course, I know that the amount of control I feel I need to have over my life is over the top so I continue to work at keeping faith and trusting that life is unfolding as it should.
In a lot of ways, my control has actually limited my life as fear makes too many of my decisions.
There is a lot going on at work lately which has caused me to have a lot of stress and feel out of control.  This has been going on for the last few months and it is really affecting my health.  If I could let go, trust, and have faith, then perhaps I could be living my best life with more of a sense of security than I am.  I could let go of limiting behaviors and beliefs and open my heart and mind to possibilities that I can’t even think of.
I heard something this weekend that struck a cord in me.  It’s simple but really made me think…

Thanks and have a great week!

Wishcast Wednesday – What do you wish to step into?

The great thing about Jamie Ridler’s Wishcast prompts is they automatically influence a positive response.  This helps us so much when we are on a path that is sometimes littered with our past doubts, limitations, etc.

We can think ahead and move forward because we can picture a different way of living when we have something to focus on.  Really a brilliant concept!  Thank you Jamie!!
 
This week’s prompt is What do you wish to step into? 
 
The question itself automatically gives me an image of forward movement.  Where should I place my “foot” next to move forward living my best life?  What do I wish to envelope myself in?  These are also the questions that come to mind when I read Jamie’s prompt.
 
I wish to step into… My own gloriousness!!!
 
I spend too much time doubting my own fabulousness, thinking that others will only see the overweight person in front of them and not the message that I could deliver.  I keep thinking–why would anyone listen to me when one look at me shows that I’m not living what I talk about?  If I can trust my own fabulousness so will others…
 
– Really living what I know to be true!
 
As written above.  I KNOW things but I don’t always follow them for myself…time to step into what I know to be true!
 
– Really, REALLY trusting that the Universe is supporting me, ALWAYS!
 
I am a control freak (yes, it’s true) and I have to keep reminding myself that I do  not need to be in charge of this life show.  I need to keep moving forward in the direction I KNOW to be true and right for me and then let go of the doubts and fears.  Trust that I am fully supported because I BELIEVE in Spirit, God, the Universal energy that is everywhere!
 
The journey you get is only as good as the one you settle for.  – Bob Koehler 

How would your life be different if you learned how to love and respect your body as though it were a precious creation, as valuable as a beloved friend or child?  How would you treat yourself differently?  – Christiane Northrup, M.D.

 
The price we pay for authenticity may seem high, but who among us can truly afford to continue living as a spendthrift of the self?  – Sarah Ban Breathnach 

 
As always, thank you for listening/reading.  I truly, truly appreciate all of the support and feedback I get here.

Intention This Week – Faith (again/still/always)

Thanks Andrea for the reminder of the weekly intention!

Over the weekend I had some epiphanies, and what keeps coming up for me is “faith”.  Having faith that life is working the way it’s supposed to, that I’m unfolding the way I’m supposed to, that the choices I’m making in my life right now are the right ones for my future–more so than ever before!

Keep the faith!
