The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Passion List

I really am grateful

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow

I decided a long time ago, I was not going to make a New Year’s Resolution list; instead I decided to keep a “Passion” List.

I found when I made “resolutions”, I was easily sidetracked and I would, for example, somehow fall off the “diet” wagon, or I would simply, not take anything on this list seriously.  That’s when I came up with something that would stick – My Passion List.

When we are passionate about something, it stays with our mind, body and soul.  Passion comes from the heart and the odds of getting bored with something you are passionate about are low compared to the odds of getting bored with a resolution list that creates pressure.

My Passion List is quite lengthy, but guess what?  I haven’t steered away from it at all!  Everything on my passion list are things with meaning, things which are very important to…

Affirmations you need

Great affirmations to stay in a positive space.

Vrunda Chauk

Watch your thoughts for they become your words,

Watch your words for they become actions,

Watch your actions for they become habit,

Watch your habits for they become character.

Margaret Thatcher

This is so true. It all starts with your thoughts. Your mindset.

I started practicing Affirmations recently and I’ve discovered they really help to keep me in the right frame of mind. They help me keep the right mindset in different situations.

I discovered the Instagram account of Idil Ahmed – @Idillionaire

I really liked her her quotes and I find myself reading them when I doubt myself or when I don’t feel certain about anything. She reminds me that everything will work out just fine and my perspective shifts.

Here are some of my favourite quotes by her that I’d like to share –

Being spiritual isn’t just meditation

Very true

Aria-Bella Rises

5Feb-01

Being spiritual isn’t just meditation and all that woo.

It is noticing a smile from a stranger, getting the chills from words in a song, it is listening to nature and feeling Mother Earth’s heartbeat. Being spiritual is simply living. Being spiritual is simply living. To the best of your ability.

It doesn’t mean you have to forgo anything. Stop anything. Look a certain way. Only be happy and at peace. There can be so many myths and preconceived ideas on what the word spiritual means.

When really all it is, is choosing to grow and evolve from our experiences. To enjoy each day mindfully. To process through everything we experience. To choose love and peace. To know the universe and the unseen have our back, and that we equally have theirs.

Yes when you truly dive in, there can be a lot of beautiful, unique experiences you can have…

Dating God 2-4-19

Dating God does not require a hermitage any more than taking a spouse on a date requires a special destination. Solitude comes when we create the space and set aside the time to enter more deeply into the mystery that is the very Love that gives us life and meaning. It can be found in the quiet of the morning before the busy day, in the ten minute walk at lunch, or in the restful moments before bed. Just as with creating time and space to be alone with another person, creating time and space for solitude is more about intentionality and the desire to be fully present in the moment than it is about being in this or that location. While solitude may appear scary at first, confronting that fear is perhaps the first step to deepening one’s relationship with God. Just as the prospect of learning more about another person or ourselves can be daunting, the reward comes in the connection that is formed when two know each other in the openness of an intimate friendship. Going into the created space and time set aside for solitude is going on a date with God.

Integrity 2-1-19

“A quiet mind married to integrity of heart is the birth of wisdom.” – ADYASHANTI

I read this quote this morning and I found myself pondering on my own integrity. It reminded me of the time I quit a lucrative and very prosperous position based on my personal integrity. At the time my boss was asking me to compromise my integrity for the good of the business. In other words for money. I refused, so I quit on the spot. I still remember the words he said to me. “You will never make the money you make here”. My reply was “I’d rather take that chance than compromise my integrity for a buck!”

I walked away that day with my head held high and have never looked back. In the end, he was right. I’ve never made the money I was earning at my position while working there, however I have never regretted my decision. I knew then like I know now. I made the right decision. I haven’t always made great decisions in my life but any decision I’ve made based on integrity has always been one with no regrets. I’ve found it easy to never look back.
