HOW DO YOU SHOW UP?

In the presence of others, do you take the high road of authenticity or gauge how you show up dependent upon on how the others appear? This is sometimes referred to as peer pressure. And you thought that only applied to children, especially teenagers. Well it does not and guess what, the same small children you are saying this to be watching you and how you show up in the company of others.

Do not compromise your values for the sake of belonging. Isn’t that what we tell our children? Be a leader not a follower, and there we go following the gang because everyone is doing it. As we get older our gang is broader and is often influenced by what we see on television and what we hear in the music. The community at large becomes our gang, the people we hang out with. In this process do you still honor your truth? Or are you following the crowds, the same crowd we warn our children about?

Actions are always much louder than our words. Our children are watching. How we show up! Are your actions consistent with your values? How do you show up? Is the environment the one who sets the tone of what is fashionable and the latest trend? Are your actions consistent with your words?

Is honesty an admirable value? Yet you lie to others often, in the company of your children? What do you think they are learning, that it is okay to lie some of the time, because they hear you doing it? Well if this is how you show up, please do not chastise the children for repeating what you are teaching. Do you holler, scream and curse others when you are upset? But insist upon spanking the child that does the same as you?

How do you show up for yourself? Do you compromise because you feel intimidated by titles or status? Regardless of the position in life we are each the same, a child of God.

Respect yourself and show up as the real you all the time!

AMAZEMENT

August 1st

 

August is the month of amazement. Carefully look into, check out and investigate all the wonders of life. We move so quickly that we may forget how incredible things are.

 

This month slow down a bit and truly witness the beauty that is all around you, even in the little things. Stop for a moment and feel the sensation of the blood that flows through your veins. This gift of life does its job without any effort on your part; it just does what it is designed to do.

 

Pay attention to your breath. Do you breathe fully in and exhale completely out? Or is your breathing rushed and/or shallow? Can you allow yourself to inhale deeply, taking in the wonder of life? Go ahead and breathe in very slowly, enjoy this feeling of allowing yourself to appreciate the gift of breath. Now exhale, let it all out. Relax and take another deep breath. Notice how you breathe. Be grateful for this gift of oxygen.

 

Have you ever noticed how a wound will heal itself, even when you do not place a bandage on it? That is a gift as well. Your body can and will heal itself because it is designed that way. God took precious care in creating the human, making sure that it was a perfect specimen, fully capable of restoring itself to wholeness when injured.

 

Then there is the amazing fact that you can change your thoughts at any time you decide. You are not stuck into one way of thinking, unless you are unwilling to exercise that privilege.

 

It is simply amazing how incredible God has created everything especially the human being, the highest form of life. Pay deliberate attention to the details and the movements and motions of life.  Notice how amazing life truly is and celebrate the Goodness of God!
