Maybe you are feeling bad because you should have been put together a vision board and/or a vision statement. Maybe you are not even thinking about vision or vision boards or vision statements. Whether you one of those vision board people or not; Whether you have written a vision/mission statement or not; YOU ARE LIVING YOUR VISION & YOUR VISION IS LIVING IN YOU. Already. Right Now. We are immersed. Totally and completely. Our lives are all ready vision statements. Panoramic 3d immersion vision boards.
Stop, look, and listen. Feel. And smell. Taste. Your vision is already filling you and surrounding you. You are already thinking vision, speaking vision, and doing vision.
On what are you spending time, money, and energy? What do you see around you? What do you see in your mirror? What do you wear? What is on your walls? What do you see when you wake up in the morning? Just before you close your eyes at night? How do you adorn yourself? Treat yourself? Reward yourself? What do your social media profiles show? Who do you follow? About what do you share? What is on your virtual walls? What are you watching and reading? To whom are you talking and about what? To what are you listening? Where do you go? What are you feeding yourself? What are your sources of nourishment? Is your mental, physical, emotional diet good to you and good for you? What do you smell? Is it sweet, stimulating, relaxing, inspiring? When and where do you smell success? Taste victory? Feel the wins?
Official wrtten vision statement or not… Official vision board or not… The seeds of our visions are there. Here. All around us. The fruits of our energetic labor are here and there, too. Our lives are ours to cultivate. To weed and seed and nurture. How can you become more conscious of your personal garden? What can you gather about your vision from your life? Right now? How can you shape your garden, shape your vision, shape our world?
Why? Why you mad? Huh?
Because of what they been doing? Or she could’ve done. Because of what he did. Because of what you didn’t do. Now you heated. And disappointed. And maaaaaaaad. Plus angry. Let down. And upset, pissed off, agitated. And it’s justifiable. It makes sense. You don’t have any other choice. Your only option is to feel the way you feel. Right? Holding onto the fury; hugging it tight. Digging deep and making a home in rage. Glorying in your justifiable in·dig·na·tion. Because of what they doing and/or he did and/or what she could have (and should have) done and/or what you did not do. Right? RIGHT?
You got other options. Let go of being enraged. Invest energy in nation building after connecting with your indignation. Don’t just be furious, be fabulous. Don’t be mad; be happy.
Be happy because we are people who are going places. Always have. And we are doing thangs. As per our usual. We are on mission. On purpose. We are each here to be about our traditional business of being our fabulous selves. We have work to do, joy to share, assignments to complete, fun to have, people to serve, smiles to give, and places to go. As is our legacy. And “mad” is not on the agenda.
Yup. Accept that they do what they do. And he did do what he did. And that she did what she did. And accept that you did what you did, too. Understand that it is what it is. Accepting is not co-signing or agreeing or celebrating. Acccepting is understanding that situations are what they are; life is what it is; people are who we are. Let us see, know, and understand things wholistically. Accept all of what life is. Throughout time and space. Let us access calmly and clearly. Straight, no chaser. In totality. Fully and fabulously.
Understand that we are and life is and others are and this situation is… Well, dynamic. Alive. Complex. Subtle. In progress. And our freedom comes through understanding. Accepting the reality of light with dark. So-called bad with good. Understanding that sometimes what we want to happen or to be will not happen and will not be AND that sometimes what we do not want to happen or to be will happen and will be. And still we get to keep moving. Dancing. Creating through life. With life. And GOoD.
We just ascertain who, what, WHERE we are honestly. How else can we be at peace? How else can we be in joy? How else can you be fabulous you? How else can we move and grow and develop and progress?
You have a vision of being at point “p”. In order to implement an effective and efficient strategy to get there (to point “p”), you’ve got to determine where you actually are. One strategy makes sense if you are currently at point “m”. A totally different strategy makes since if you are at point “b” or point “u”. So we must know exactly who and where we are. And make peace with it. So we can keep on moving and growing and developing and progresing.
Mad doesn’t get us closer to the vision. Mad does not advance the agenda. Mad can be an occasional detour, but mad certainly is not our destination. So be mad when and if you need to. Get heated. Be angry. Feel let down. Experience your disappointment. Be upset and agitated and pissed off. Then understand. Overstand. Innerstand. Outerstand. And be fabulous you. (And check out my thoughts on video.)
Today is the best day ever. Trust and believe.
You are the greatest. Trust and believe.
It’s all GOoD. Trust. And believe.
So. How do I know this? How can I assert theses things? We don’t even know each other. (Or, we barely know each other. Or we know each other well; but–still–what makes me think I can know those things?) I just know, ok? I trust and believe.
And that is really all I got: trust. I trust God. I trust that God is good (GOoD). I trust me. So I believe that GOoD is in me, everyone, and every situation. I believe that all of my experiences are blessons (blessings & lessons). And I believe that I can handle whatever. Dissapointment? I am strong enough. Falling down? I am resilient enough. Life with all its ups and downs? I have the support, guidance, and love of GOoD.
And you do too. If me, then you. We are connected. Joined. We are one. We reflect each other. So I know the truth for you. I know that GOoD is in, through, and for you. I know that all of your experiences are blessons. I know that you can not only handle all that you draw into your life, but that you are using your blessons to blossom and thrive. I know that each disappointment is a divine appointment; an opportunity to release expectations. I know that each time you fall, you delight in that occasion to see things in a new way. I know that you grow as you–with more and more ease–enjoy all of the ups and downs that are life; All of the ins and outs that are life; All of the back and forth that is life. I know you as you live life, you are full of and surrounded by the support, guidance, and love of GOoD.
I trust that we can thrive. We have excelled in the past. We are thriving now. We will continue with joy and excellence to prosper into the future. I trust that all conspires to help us (and our families and our communities) connect with GOoD. More deeply. With greater consciousness. Easier. More joyfully.
So. YES! Today is the best day ever. You are the greatest. It’s all GOoD. Trust and believe.
