Take the time to remind yourself daily how precious life is and how wonderful it is to live from an authentic and meaningful place. You deserve it 🙂
1. You are a spiritual being having a human experience.
Remind yourself daily that you are not your body. You are the Soul that gives life the body. And when the time will come for you to leave this physical world, you will come to know that
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.” ~ John 6:63
2. This day could be your last day.
Today could be your last day. The last day you feel the warmth of the Sun on your skin. The last day you get to see the smile of those close to you. The last day you can kiss the Earth with your feet. Make good use of this day. Love those who love you, and make peace with those who don’t. Live today as if it were your last day.
3. Your Soul is in your keeping. Yours, and yours alone.
No matter your past, present, or future circumstances, remind yourself daily that it is up to you to walk the path of your Soul. It is up to you to do the work you came here to do. Your Soul is your keeping. Yours, and yours alone. And when you will,
“A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power. When you stand before God, you cannot say, “But I was told by others to do thus,” or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice. Remember that.” ~ from the movie, Kingdom of Heaven
4. You have a great purpose.
You came out of this world with a great purpose, a work so wonderful and so inspiring that the whole world will stand in awe of its magnificence. Remind yourself daily to live each day in alignment with your purpose.
5. The world is in great need of your Light.
Remind yourself daily that you were created to shine your Light brightly, not so that you can blind others, but so that you can lead them back to themselves, and back to living the life they all came here to live. Shine your Light!
6. What you put out in the world, will come back to you like a boomerang.
We are all in this together. What you do to one, you do to all. And what you do to all, you do it to yourself. Be careful what you put out there.
7. There are no idle thoughts
Every though you think is like a planted seed that will eventually give life to something wanted or unwanted. That’s how powerful your mind is. If you,
“Sow a thought, you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
8. Words have the power to bring worlds into existence.
Words have the power to lift you up or tear you down. With every word that comes out of your mouth, you can either build a life that is filled with light, love, and meaning, or a life that is filled with fear, doubt, sadness and limitations. It’s all up to you. It’s all in the power of your tongue.
“So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” ~ Isaiah 55:11
9. Fear is just an illusion.
Fear is nothing but an illusion, and the only thing that your brave and courageous Soul know to be true is LOVE.
“Perfect love casts out fear. If fear exists, There there is not perfect love. But: Only perfect love exists. If there is fear, It produces a state that does not exist.” ~ ACIM
10. Love is worth it all.
Whether we realize this or not, all that we do, we do it for sake of love – to love and be loved. Love is at the core of everything we need and desire. And instead of chasing all the wrong things, people and experiences in the hope of getting love, you might as well give yourself to love. Commit to love, and you will be loved.
11. You are in the world, and the world is in you.
Remind yourself daily that the world is your mirror. Recognize yourself in it. Give everyone you come in contact with your compassion, forgiveness, love, and understanding. Because by giving them all of these things, you are in fact giving them to yourself. And by making peace with all of them, you are making peace with all of you.
12. Life is a journey, not a destination.
Slow down. Breathe in. Breathe out. Enjoy the view. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy the journey. Enjoy your life.
And these are 12 lovely things that are worth reminding yourself each day. I wonder if any one of them is already on your daily list. You can share your comment in the comment section below 🙂
