Be The Change You Wish To See In The World

December 21, 2011 Health, Lifestyle

The subject line of this newsletter is my favorite quote of all time. Mahatma Gandhi said it and it truly embodies everything I strive to do on a daily basis.  I often get frustrated, some times I fail, other times I soar to success with ease, but no matter what is going on in my world I am constantly striving to be the best me I can be.  With that said, there is a tricky little trap that comes up for me every so often that I want to bring to light today.  Although I want the best for all people that I know and meet, and I strive to be my best whether I achieve it all the time or not, I often still have to work on making sure that I don’t preach peoples ears off.  As a certified professional life coach and even just as a student of life, I can get in to this not-so-fun habit of trying to justify or prove why one way is better then the other, instead of just being a living example.  Do you feel me?  It is NO fun for anyone involved and it leaves this gross residue of awkwardness on everything.

I recently got the chance to be the change instead of force and preach the change, and I have to say there is a lot more peace in that then in the latter.  There was no suffering, no tension in my body, no constriction in my spirit, and I shared my truth in a big way for the first time.  I would be thrilled if you would take a look at this amazing  where I got to express this and leave a comment if you feel moved to do so.  But either way, I want you to remember this quote and mindset when you are with all of your loved ones this holiday season.  Sure your uncle might do things you wish he didn’t, or your cousin might pick on you more then you deserve and so on, but if you can be centered in faith and stay strong in how you interact with them,miracles can happen.

Thank you for reading.
