LS3D--PEACE

‘Cause I got a peaceful easy feeling’

~ Eagles

LS3D-WCS (2)

‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’ … three of the saddest words uttered throughout the ages … 3 words that cause our greatest grief and anxiety … they are the socially unacceptable words of regret … the misgivings we have shoved down … the remorse we pretend doesn’t exist … we all have them … moments when we cautiously withdrew from someone or something because we were afraid of being rejected, of failing, looking foolish … they are the life defining moments we defensively, justifiably, self-righteously took a detour from and headed into a new direction … believing we are ‘now’ safe … yet as we journey on our new path we quietly carry our invisible baggage of shame, guilt and self-loathing, mumbling I ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’…

A recent survey by Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America found that roughly one-third (32%) of Americans regret major choices in their lives.

Happy Newsflash … it’s never late to dump our baggage … to embrace our innocence … our vulnerabilities … to acknowledge that we did our best with what we knew at the time … to exercise our courage …. to step up and smash our ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’… to either do the ‘ it’ … or … to forgive ourselves … for our past misguided decisions … at this juncture we can’t fool ourselves … we know what to do for ‘done’ to pop.

Extreme Aliveness …

LS3D--Resistance 2

Resistance is a force of nature … it’s like gravity … pulling at us to hang on to our safe, secure, comfortable life … the core thought that sponsors resistance is ‘I am not good enough’ to be that, to do that, to have that … choosing to push through resistance is one of our most exhilarating experiences in life … it is scary as hell … yet, when say ‘f@*k it’ and push through the pain of resistance … fear … we feel extreme aliveness … when we land on the other side, we are welcomed by our unlived authentic self … our destiny, our Nirvana.

Own It Girlfriend …

LS3D--Own IT

When we own IT … yes I mean all of it … both the good stuff and the nasty bits … we are choosing to be the Queen of our universe … when we don’t … we become a slave girl in someone else’s world … my dear friends, always elect being a Queen over a slave girl … don the Queen’s mantle … your divinely appointed mantle … this is the key to your happiness and success … I promise.

Feeling Safe …

LS3D-LISTEN

When we are listening to respond we can’t hear the other person … when we are listening to understand … our personal agendas are put aside and our response or non-response will naturally empower the situation …

~ Judit e. Szabo

(Note: I agree with John Gray and I would like to add that the above also applies to women listening to men.)

LS3D--Courage Symbol

The whole point of our fears is to grow and evolve … to enrich our lives … through acts of courage.

LS3D--VISION

If the vision you hold of your highest self … your best life … does not scare the hell out of you … it’s not the one … if it doesn’t fill up the hole in your heart … rock your soul … consume your thoughts … it’s not the one … keep crafting your vision until your whole being is on fire.
