July 8, 2024 THRIVE!

It is important to remember that we are always in control of our actions and reactions.  We get to choose where we stand on important issues, we get to choose how to respond to others, we get to choose boundaries and limitations OR the limitless potential that we truly are…and when we choose to look at life this way, we can clearly see just how important our mindset is.  We can be our own worst enemy or our own hero. 

This week we are encouraged to assess our mindset.  Is there room for growth? Where are we stuck in our minds? Is our internal voice louder than the exterior voices? Who is in the driver’s seat of our lives? Thriving is a choice. It’s time to get out of the stories we’ve been telling ourselves, time to get out of our own way and push forward to a life that we love, a life that we are thankful for, a life in which we THRIVE!

For those close to me, you’ve likely heard me say “it’s none of my business what others think of me.”  You see, others see me through their own filters and life experience. I am fully aware that I am not everyone’s cup of tea.  And that is okay. I can’t be all things, to all people, all the time.  That isn’t my purpose here. I have no control over what someone chooses to think of me or how they choose to feel about me.  So when I show up in all my authentic glory, confident in my heart, it doesn’t matter how others see me. At the end of the day, I have to go to sleep with myself, I unwind my day and have to live with my choices and actions. I live in my skin, I am the creator of my circumstances, the driver of my journey, the designer of my destiny.

If I were to let what I think others think of me influence me, then THEY hold all my power – they create my circumstances, determine my path and shape my destiny – and I want NO part of that.  Call me a control freak, but I choose to live on MY terms. 

I’m not sure that we can truly THRIVE in life if we aren’t in the driver’s seat of our own lives. This week, we are encouraged to let go of the notion that we have the power to think we know what others might think or feel about us (we are probably wrong anyway) and instead embrace our inner power to release self-judgment and make choices that empower us to live in our authenticity. Let’s choose to THRIVE in our own way…and enjoy, I mean really enjoy, every minute of it!

XO Juli
