Being Your Best Self
Something changes when I approach as many of my moments as possible with a very conscious decision to do my best. It’s difficult to describe it adequately. I end up much happier at the end of the day no matter what happens, because my focus has shifted from reacting to listening to myself and choosing who I want to be. It doesn’t matter what happens in the world around me; what matters is that I am creating my world.
I've noticed that when I’m intentionally choosing to just be my best self in the middle of whatever I encounter, it really doesn’t matter how well I do or how much I accomplish. What I’m aware of is that I designed the moment in the highest energy I was capable of, and that is more than enough, it is a joyful act of creation.
When I’m choosing to be my best self, I am naturally more patient. I am less rushed and more peaceful. I am very present in the moment, and there is ease in what I’m doing. I am happy to be here, in my body, contributing my own unique light to the situation.
I believe that my best changes on different days, depending on many variables. But that doesn’t really matter either. When I consciously choose to do and be my best in any moment, whatever that may be at the time, I am embracing my life's purpose, as I help elevate the energy around me, and create a world of my own making.
May this tool be a blessing. . .
