CLUTTER BUSTING WITH BROOKS PALMER

 

I am again listening to my friend’s (Brooks Palmer) “Clutter Busting” book.  He’s on Hoopla.

I have read books on simplifying, organizing, cleaning, but only with Brooks, have I heard it explained in the way of being PRESENT.  

Not living in the past.  Not holding on to the past.  Especially the past that left us on our knees.  

Past hurts.  

Past way of life.  Whether good or not so good.

The past holds us back.  And sometimes for A LIFETIME, if we allow it.

Live in the present.  Do your things serve a purpose NOW?

 

HAPPY SEPTEMBER!

 

New day.  New Month.  New Dreams.  New Experiences.

May you fill this day with moments of Contentment.

 

JUST A REMINDER

 

Just a reminder (to self) to:

Never Reply when you’re Angry.

Never make a Promise when you’re Happy

Never make a Decision when you are Sad.

 

THE BIG LESSON

 

The big lesson says Martin Rooney:  You’ll never have the best career if you never treat the one you have like the best.

He’s got heart which was what inspired me the most in his “Coaching Greatness” seminar.  Thanks Martin!

 

 

CLARITY

 

Not too often I question a decision I made.  Whether I made the right one.  

It never fails:  I get confirmation from the Divine, that I certainly did.  

Clarity IS a beautiful thing.

 

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

 

I have high expectations of my yoga students.  I expect them to do their Best.  Always.  Whether their best is better than the day before or not.

 

BE SOMEONE YOU LOOK UP TO

 

“Be someone you look up to” says my Dove chocolate wrapper today.

 

HABITS

 

“Dying YOUNG as old as possible” is the goal says The Blue Zone Solution.  

Staying healthy using smart eating and lifestyle habits.

HABITS is the key word here.  We have to make it a way of life.

 

THE SECRET LAW OF ATTRACTION

 

Craig Beck talks about the EGO in his book The Secret Law of Attraction: 

All unhappiness stems from the Ego’s refusal to accept and be Grateful for the present moment.  

The pain you feel and describe as unhappiness or depression is actually the force being applied on you by the Ego, incorrectly assuming the future and the past will be and were a better place to be.  

As soon as you stop swimming upstream, acknowledge the ego, but ignore its demands and ACCEPT THE MOMENT AND ALL IT BRINGS, then you will be free.
