We all have the power of choice. The only action we can control in any emotionally charged situation is how we choose to ‘react’ or ‘respond’.
Our choice can affect the outcome one way or another.
When we ‘respond’ to a situation, we are consciously in our power with the intention to create positive momentum aimed at mutual understanding and satisfaction.
When we ‘react’ we tend to be out of control, defensive and combative, spiralling deeper into drama, fanning the flames of our ego.
The next time you are in a challenging situation and your ego becomes triggered by fear, and you can feel frustration, annoyance, disappointment or some other defensive emotion rising to the surface, pause.
Take a deep breath and remind yourself that you have the power to transform the energy, direction and outcome of any situation with your response.🦋
When our outer world experiences are consistently less than satisfactory, it is a signal to turn within, to reconnect to our heartfelt vision of what is true and meaningful.
Living in a state of deep satisfaction is not a fantasy, it is a consequence of following our inner wisdom, to live authentically. 🦋
A life’s time is fleeting, it is precious, it can never be repeated or recalled. To squander our life’s time is a self-indulgent offense to our inner humanity. Each golden moment of life is an invitation to live our life’s time to its full satisfaction.

For me the true measure of success is personal happiness, optimism, gratitude and a deep sense of satisfaction.

An Experiment: Set Your Own Measure…
Take a look at every aspect of your life and ask yourself…
“Am I happy with this part (relationships, work, finances, home, health…) of my life.”
If you answer ‘yes’ then you are experiencing success in that aspect of your life however, if you answer ‘no’ or ‘somewhat’ then it is time for you to tap into your authentic self, design a doable plan and then do ‘it’ with all of your heart, soul, gray matter and physical energy.
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time.
This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression.
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open.
No artist is pleased.
There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
~ Martha Graham
