Are You Ready to Seize the Day?

Are You Ready to Seize the Day?

When you are inspired to do something, whatever it is in you that calls to be expressed, answer the call. Be bold; cross the threshold into uncertainty with the joyous anticipation that you are in fact stepping into your magnificence. And that whatever results will benefit you and others, otherwise you would not have been inspired in the first place.

Most of us will not have our life play out in the public eye on Earthís big stage. Most of us will not discover a cure for a major disease or invent something that changes the way we live. But we are all significant and relevant; otherwise we would not be here.

Too often we judge ourselves against the life path of another. However, each life path is unique to the Soul that has chosen that specific life. Each life provides exactly what that Soul needs to live in full expression and experience of Self, otherwise that path would not have been chosen.

Each personís contribution to humanity lies in each living their respective life in full expression of who they truly are. Honor and respect each person you encounter in your life experiences for the path they have chosen and you will be likewise honored and respected.

As you each live in full expression of who you are in each moment, you serve as an example to others of what is true for them, of what they are fully capable of creating and experiencing.

When you assume you are stepping into your magnificence, and you hold the expectation that magnificence is what will result, your magnificence will be your experience. If what you experience does not appear to be your magnificence but appears challenging or difficult, know that it appears as it does as an opportunity for your magnificence to be revealed and experienced by you.

Stepping into your magnificence gives notice to the Universe that you are willing to follow the inspiration you were given. When we boldly follow the inspiration the Universe responds accordingly, because that is what the Universe is compelled to do.

We would not be inspired to do something if it were not intended to be.

And if it is intended to be, all for it to be, will be provided.

Stepping into our magnificence requires the desire and willingness to courageously move beyond having become too comfortable in our discomfort to fully trusting the process of life. It is the knowingness that when we take that joyous leap of Faith, all is provided for what we desire to create and experience.

Cross the threshold into uncertainty by stepping into your magnificence with the joyous expectation of all of the goodness life has to offer. Look at life with wide eyes of wonder and curiosity. Expand your awareness to all that is happening around you and within you, and know that it is all happening for you. Be the blessing you desire to see in the world and you will be likewise blessed.

I learned this from the Oprah Show when Marianne Williams was on. She said to say this to yourself everyday, "Come Holy Spirit and dwell within me and help me become the person I was created to be"!

Damn, I would read this when the day's practically gone.

Sometimes one simply can't...

One of the secrets to being able to truly seize each day is building into it some time to allow serendipity to simply happen. If you map your your entire life, you'll not notice soon enough when you're either on the wrong path or something even better for you is being offered. I'm no longer frustrated when my plans go awry. I figure there's a reason, and try to go with the flow to find out what it is.
