Monday Morning Motivation
When one door closes another one opens. Unfortunately sometimes people spend so much time trying to get back in the same door they miss the opportunity another door can present. Stop knocking on the door that closed, stop struggling to pull it open again, stop looking longingly at it! Let it go!
There are many doors and opportunities just for you. Focus on the possibility a new door will bring you. Focus on what you want to find behind the door. Focus on getting ready for the new experiences the next door will bring. The Universe closed that old door so you could find the door that is meant for you. Have faith and keep moving forward. Your door is waiting for you!
I lost a friend this weekend that took his own life. As I wrote his eulogy it reminded me of my favorite uncle who went into deep depression after he retired years ago and of George Bailey from my favorite movie “It’s A Wonderful Life”. These men were wonderful men, loved by everyone that knew them. It makes me so sad to think that they had no idea how much they were loved. They had no idea of how important they were or the role they played in the lives they touched.
Do you know how much you are loved? Do you know the role you have played in so many lives? Do you know how precious you are to the the Creative Intelligence that I call God/Divine? Let me remind you that you are Loved, that you matter, that you make a difference. We all have been given this precious gift of Life to walk each other home to ourselves. Do something this week to embrace this truth and help another remember the truth about themselves. It really is a wonderful life!
There is no one in the world quite like you. You may look like others in your family; you may have similar interests as others; you may share some beliefs with others; you may have similar gifts or strengths as others and you may share wisdom with some great teachers but you are the only You. You are one of a kind. You are a unique expression of the Divine.
Come to appreciate your looks, your ideas, your interests, your beliefs, your strengths and your gifts. Embrace everything that makes you you! Stand out. Be strong. Be brave. Walk tall. Speak your truth. Share your gifts. Share your wisdom. Share the wonderful, exquisite expression of the Divine that is you with the world!
If you can see what it is you want you can have it. See if in your mind’s eye, see it as clearly as you can with as much detail as you can. You also have to feel it, you have to believe it and you have to take steps daily to move towards it.
Feel it with enough emotion to move your body into action. It is done to you as you believe so believe with every fiber of your being. Take one step at a time in the direction of your goal, learn and grow with every step and you will know which steps to take next to make you dream a reality.
