We just recently celebrated the 4th of July with 25 of our closest friends and family. Anyone who knows me knows that I love to entertain and I love to spoil my guests. We have everything under the sun you would love to eat at a cookout. I love to cook, so I cook everything. I enjoy seeing the smiles on their faces when they taste my food and share their compliments of how everything looks so nice and tastes so good.
The week of our gathering, we had so many events that tried to prevent our yearly get together. We almost canceled it but, I've learned that the more we move from a place of authenticity and truth, the more we rise above situations. Although things try to come against what you want and the whole process of it can be draining and exhausting, a positive reaction to a negative situation will give off positive energy. Doing so keeps you in control of your energy. We cannot control what others do, but we can control what we do. I've learned the more we give our attention to positivity and those things in line with what we want, the more energy we generate to accomplish what we want. One of my favorite books is The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles. When I read books I create affirmations for myself from the inspiration I get from my reading. One of the affirmations I created for myself from this book is:
"I make positive impressions upon substance to produce manifestation. Negative impressions offset and neutralize positive ones".
Because I say this affirmation daily, when things came against our holiday plans, I continued forward and even more so. The positivity spread throughout the house and we were no longer discussing the distractions, but the celebration. This celebration actually turned out bigger and better than last year. Not only that, I actually gained a new client from the guests we invited.
People are used to seeing others dim their light and even giving excuses as to why they can't shine. Make the choice to continue to live your life your way and allow people to experience your shine regardless and just because. There is so much darkness in the world today. I find it quite refreshing to see another woman dare to be authentic without apologies. Leave your comments below, I'd love to hear from you.
P.S. This is the final week to take advantage of the Life by Design payment plan option. Your can spend another year talking about it or the next 90 days making it happen.
