I was sitting out in my garden patio. It was so peaceful. I love looking at the plants, flowers and my little round pond. The patio has a grape vine over the top of it and this provides shade for the plants and the inside of the patio. The vine gives just enough light for the plants and the right amount of shade so they don’t burn in the hot Arizona sun. My garden patio is my calm and tranquil place. I journal and self reflect there. It is my happy space.
Do you have a place where you go to unwind?
Is this place calm and relaxing to you?
If so, how often do you take advantage of this space? Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Annually
If you don’t, “Why not?”
We all need someplace to think and rejuvenate. Are you taking time for you? Would scheduling some time help? Is this something to consider for creating balance in your life? If you don’t have a place, imagine where to find one? It could be anywhere you feel at peace. Why not consider this and let me know how it made a difference in your life. I just love my garden patio and it creates tranquility in my life! How about you? ~Patti

Back in January of 2014 I had put out a poll named “What is preventing YOU from accomplishing your dream, goal or aspirations? Here were the results as of today:
The voters had Self-Doubt or Confidence as the number one reason. Time or Dedication and Financial Reasons or Obligations were the number two reasons. Why do you think Self-Doubt or Confidence was number one?
Why are people afraid to pursue their dreams or aspirations? Is it better not to go after your dreams so you won’t fail? Absolutely NOT! I recall sometime back I had read an article which discussed when people were close to dying they wished they took more chances and didn’t worry about what others thought of them. They wished they did the things they wanted instead of going through the motions. Following the life they imagined. (This is my interpretation of the article.)
Can you imagine how many happy and satisfied people there would be in this world, if they pursued their goals, dreams or aspirations? There are so many people miserable because they are in a job they hate and stay for all the wrong reasons. These unsatisfied individuals contribute on spreading the misery around.
How do you live the life you imagined?
Start with creating an action plan. Ask yourself the following questions:
What do you really want in your life?
What do you need in your life to accomplish it?
What steps will you take?
What may prevent you from achieving it?
What will you do to move past those obstacles and achieve what you want?
Right now the life you’re leading is this acceptable or satisfying to you? Or is there something more you want? Can you imagine how different your life would be if you followed these steps to accomplish the life you imagined? ~ Patti
