As I’m gearing up for some rather dramatic changes in my life, I’m noticing a wonderful upswing in my level of joy. Not only that, I’m already seeing how the changes I’m implementing in my own life are also impacting the lives of others in one way or another. I ran across this today and felt that it pretty much summed things up:
I am certainly believing in possibilities these days, and allowing for any form they might decide to take without overthinking how they should turn out. I’m finding that, once the initial shock of the balls I’ve put in play wore off, my confidence in the success of whatever I undertake becomes, not so much that it will be, but how high I can go!
I’ve really taken to heart what I’ve been reading lately about setting the plan but allowing the details to fall in place and to just be ready to kick yourself into high gear when things start to flow. What I’m seeing now is not so much if finding enough, but more of being able to keep up with the influx and to know when to allow some opportunities to pass me by so that I can focus on the ones which are best aligned with where I want and need to go.
When I present my plan to my friends and family, I’m met with nothing but positive responses and well wishes. And the Universe is, instead of giving me head slaps for a change, giving me high fives and very strong indications that “By Jove, I think you’ve got it now!”
I’m almost tempted to jump the gun with regard to my time frame, but know that my plan, at least in that regard, is based on very sound reasoning as well as respect for those who will be impacted once this train starts to pick up steam. In fact, I see yet another lesson in patience coming at me, full speed, this time!
I’m also finding that when an idea first forms which means stepping outside our comfort zone, one of the first things we feel upon contemplating that first step is a frisson of fear. If we can work ourselves past that, keeping positive thoughts as to the ultimate outcome, the fear, though making a few more attempts to convince us to stay right where we are, is quickly vanquished by a combination of holding positive visions of the outcome and turning off the part of our brains which launches the “what if” scenarios.
Essentially, but making ourselves believe in the best possible outcome, fear has nothing on which to feed and ultimately dies. This is where the magic begins! That happy, little positive outcome thought attracts more happy, little positive outcome thoughts and as they continue to attract more of their kind, quite before we know it, that germ of an idea has sprung forth, full grown, and much more well-rounded than that which gave birth to it.
Just as a snowball rolling down a hill picks up more snow as it continues its trek, so, too, does that germ of an idea as it attracts other ideas and feeds off of the positive thoughts which are sent to it when the idea is shared. Those positive thoughts might also attract other ideas to make it better, or help from unexpected quarters. But whatever it attracts which makes it better, bigger, more viable or more far-reaching, it is what turns the sale of a few pendants into a billion dollar business, or a blog into a book, or any number of amazing transformations.
Above all, everyone has it in them to create such transformations. All we have to do is shut off the fear and allow the positivity and the ideas to come in instead!
I feel a little bit like one of those really happy couples who just want everyone to be happy like them! My ideas are humming along, gathering momentum and support and are getting ready to burst forth in a form I couldn’t even imagine when the first idea was formed, but which is so much better and more practicable than I could have imagined! Now I want everyone to understand how it works, and to take a chance on themselves!
I realize this isn’t realistic, but I do know that I’ll make a point of encouraging others to follow their ideas and believe in themselves!
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for the love and support my wild-ass ideas are getting right now.
2. I am grateful that by making a positive change in my life, I am able to give others something with which to make a positive change in theirs…and so on and so on and so on…
3. I am grateful for the people who are reading what I write, as I feel the positivity they send as well, and it just adds more fuel to my ever-growing bonfire.
4. I am grateful that I’m getting closer every day.
5. I am grateful that my life gives me so many things to laugh about, and so many people to laugh with so that we just keep filling up that joy bubble to bursting, when it sends a whole bunch of little joy bubbles out in the world to touch even more people!
Love and light
