Over the weekend, our store was robbed – They stole pretty much everything we have worked so hard for over the last 6 years while living a very modest life, putting everything into the inventory that is now lost. So please pray for us.
This is a Mandala for Strength and Courage that I painted the other day to help with the healing process.
Every day we are facing this painful reality and, even though it is hard as hell, we are moving forward because in our hearts, it is the ONLY option. We can choose to be victims in situations like this – or we can choose to be warriors – We choose the later – It is hard, it is a roller coaster ride Every.Single.Day – But this is our life, our passion, our love – and we CHOOSE this life.
I found myself wondering why this happened to us – as we have had roadblocks like this in the past – I found myself comparing our life to those who seem to live relatively safe/uneventful lives. The answer then came to me. We are entrepreneurs, we are risk takers. We choose this path and it will come with the good, the bad, and the ugly. But that is who we are, and I don’t think it will ever change. We are strong – We pull through everything, we have our lives our health, our family, and lots to be grateful for. Yes, this is a painful experience. Yes, we wake up and go to sleep everyday feeling sick to our stomach, but we will keep moving forward, because that’s just how we roll.
Today I am exploring the idea of living my life to the fullest. What that really means to me, and how to move more towards that place, by surrendering to my fears, embracing situations, and allowing things to naturally unfold with ease and non-resistance.
Some simple things I like to be remind myself of, those that could enrich my experiences, and my everyday life, making it more meaningFULL:
Smile More 🙂 – Laugh More – Give more hugs – PLAY – AKA learn from my children and unleash my inner child (I’ll save that for another for another blog post)
Try not to take life so seriously All.The.Time
Enjoy every moment, even the hard ones, as each one is truly a gift
Make the best out of any situation
Embrace NEW experiences
Be Fearless, Calm, & Compassionate
Let it go and let it flow
Be TRUE to yourself
Wow! I really could go on & on with this list. I feel better just getting it out there and reading it myself. The power of intention!!! Love it!
