LET IT BEGIN WITH ME..

LET IT BEGIN WITH ME: 
"Although we are all the same in not wanting problems and wanting a peaceful life, we tend to create a lot of problems for ourselves. Encountering those problems, anger develops and overwhelms our mind, which leads to violence.
A good way to counter this and to work for a more peaceful world is to develop concern for others. Then our anger, jealousy and other destructive emotions will naturally weaken and diminish." ~ Dalai Lama

How to improve your life?


          You will need a lot of time, discipline and patience to be able to find your inside balance. To calm your mind and to feel good about yourself. It's a long road, but I know for sure it worth it. Overall,we do not have to forget about the exterior factors that can help us reach that stage. We need to accept that everything: how we look, how we speak, our ambiance etc...the quality of our life it's a big part in our transformation.
           Some tell us how to feel beautiful by letting go of material life and some teach us how appearance help us feel better. In my opinion we can't separate them. You can tell how a person is inside by how he/she is dress, or how he/she walks, how he/she smiles, what make-up she is using or what books he reads. Everything that we do its a reflection of how we are inside.All our choices is who we are.
            I'm going to use an example of my own experience to explain what I want to say:
When I started to work on my attitude towards everything that surrounds me and to enjoy the beauty of simple things, I felt this need of changing something around me and about me: redecorating my house with brighten colors, using very light make-up, eating much healthy, or listen to a particular type of music...  I knew that this will help me in a way. And it did! I framed some printed quotes reminding me to calm down, or I set-up a special alarm song ( Michael Buble -Feeling Good ) which made my day start with a positive energy ...  I do not know if it makes seance what I say , but when a transformation comes along,  you begin to feel the need of changing things around you.You start to see things in a different way.
           You - it means the inside and the out. 
           Start to improve how you dress, how your house looks, what you eat and surround yourself only with beauty. What I'm trying to say is not: lets go shopping! Although I beleive in shopping therapy if it's not followed by after-guilt; I say: do things wisely.
            I believe in the power of a simple paint/print on the wall which can lift your mood, or wearing a special dress, or lessening a good song.... this is what I believe in :  BEAUTY.  

How and where to start? with simple things which are essential.

 Steps of improving your life:

1. Body effort and all types of exercises will help you gain more energy. It doesn't sound logical, but it is. You will feel another type of fatigue. I suggest you should do it ealry in the morning of afternoon. 

You can  skate, dance, do some yoga, run or ride a bike. Anything you enjoy doing.

2. Eat healthy 


There are so many blogs and websites where you can find out how we should eat. Start reading them. It takes 15-20 minutes. 

3. Take care how you  look


We should definitely think of this!!!

4.  Decorate your office or house with objects you like and make you feel better


I guess that everybody know about this, but how many of us are really taking this serious? Stop making excuses and ask for more from yourself.


If you are on the same page with me, then feel free to add more suggestions or comments. 

Till next time do not forget: discover the beauty of life.

Daily wisdom: What we need to know

         "Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know." ~ Pema Chodron. 

This being the case it is pointless fighting against the universe, against the people we perceive as causing us pain, it is pointless getting anxious, doubting, worrying or living in fear.

Resistance will teach us nothing, it will take us nowhere, it will destroy our happiness. Resistance and fear serves only to fuel the situation and attract more of the same into our life until we "SEE" what we need to see and "LEARN" what we need to learn.


That which we perceive to be the problem is in fact the path. The path to spiritual growth, understanding and through mastery over situations - the path to deep peace and serenity.


If you are faced with challenging people or situations and want to shift it quickly, you must work with it, not against it. Happiness doesn't fall in our lap - we must be willing to work for it.
 

  A prayer for those who believe in it's power :
Dear God (Buddha/Higher Power) I am faced with a challenging situation and I'm not sure what to do about it. The harder I try to remove the problem or fix it the worse it seems to become. The more I run from the problem, the more it keeps showing up in other areas of my life. I am exhausted and I need your help.

Forgive me for I am still learning that I do not need to do this on my own. I am still learning that it is my own mind and perception that creates and fuels the situation, therefore it cannot also be the answer. I need a healed perception.


Please show me what it is I need to see, teach me what it is I need to learn. Please reveal to me how I may take this situation and use it for the greatest good. I place my complete faith and trust in You.


I accept nothing less than Your will for me. Please help me to quieten my mind so that I may hear Your guidance above all the noise and distraction in my life. Today I will keep a space open for You and know I am following Your will when I feel deep peace and serenity. Thank you in advance for Your guidance. Thank you in advance for the miracle I am about to receive. Thy will be done. Amen

Daily wisdom : RIDING THE WAVE OF TRUTH


"I care about truth not for truth's sake but for my own." ~ Samuel Butler. 

One of the most empowering things we can do for ourselves is to admit that we are not perfect. We are human and we frequently make mistakes. But when our mistakes affect others, it's important that we do not pretend they never happened, that it doesn't matter, and we must especially be careful not to justify our actions. This serves only to hold us back on the path of spiritual growth and mastery.

Guilt is a heavy burden to carry indeed and we can often drown in it.

Step 10 allows us to ride the spiritual wave from new heights. It allows us to take personal inventory and when wrong promptly admit it. When we admit to the error and take responsibility for it, something powerful begins to manifest within our inner being. The path becomes lighter, easier, and we free our energy to move closer to our Higher Self and Higher Purpose.

Today I summon whatever courage is required of me to stare truth in the face. I develop pride and power by owning my mistakes in the same way I do in owning my achievements. I make amends when I do harm and I enjoy the spiritual high that comes from right action.

 We all have a purpose in life. 
Mine is : To be the best version of myself . 

My life as changed a lot  in the last 6 mounts: living alone (after 7 years of relationship), moving back into my flat and  deciding to close my shop and open it online. So, here I am living a new lifestyle and facing new experiences. It's not easy to see yourself starting over again, alone this time, but there's always a good part in everything: more than ever I am much more focused of improving myself. 

So starting today, this blog will help me and those who want  to join me, transform my life into a better one. 
From how we think, to how we dress... I will show you that it's possible. If you want a better YOU, than this is the moment when you should start wanting more from yourself and realize that it's up to us how we live.

It took me 3 amazing weeks of backpack traveling to realize how much life has to offer. 
If we have desires, than we shouldn't be afraid of make them real. 
When you see your dreams come true, there's the best feeling ever, then is where you are truly happy.
At least this is how I am/feel.

I want to learn how to take risks, to see all the best parts in the worst situations, I want to be an example, I want to do crazy stuff and be free of all negative emotions. I want to be proud of myself and to be able to control my mind/emotions, and not them controlling me.

I can't afford  to complain and I do not have to blame someone else for my mistakes or failure. 
I want to learn how to trust Life and my own Instincts. 

Welcome to my Journey to a better ME/You!!!
