I have, in the past, seen settling down as a deterrent to growth. It doesn't have to be, though. It can be the launching of new growth.

I am sometimes disappointed, but I love my life ... and I must believe that the disappointments contribute something to what I love.

Today, I will know the unadulterated joy of giving with no strings. I acknowledge that sometimes I hope for praise or reciprocation when I give ... and that that detracts from the joy of giving. Today, the giving will be my joy. I know that I will sow what I reap, but I will not sow for the purpose of reaping. I will sow for the joy of sowing.

It is not only my right and my privilege to walk in the abundance God has for me, it is my responsibility...just as it is my responsibility to live the rest of my truth.

Walking away from something means believing for something more. And if I want something more, I must believe it's out there (or in here). Would God give me a desire that he could not fill? Or am I to suppose another source?

I've been getting rid of some clutter — anything that doesn't serve a positive purpose in my life — and making room for things that feel happy to me. Because I get to make my life whatever I want it to be. I get to make the room feel however I want it to feel. I get to make the closet as full or as spacious as I want it. And, if I have more clutter to get rid of after Christmas, I'm not going to wait a year, or two or three to do it.

Living in the moment, yesterday is farther away than it used to be. And, so is tomorrow. They both matter less.

The best advice we can give ourselves is the loving advice we'd give somebody else. I can get some great clarity during my own workshops.

It's amazing how my words, ôI am not determined to do good, but to be good,ö from The Person I Don't Have Time To Be have struck me on a deeper level. When I am good, I don't have to try to do good. When I am love, I don't have to worry about coming from love. I simply need to be who I am.

Jan Denise
In my ideal life, I am ... If there's something on the list that I am not, I must ask myself if it's really me. And if it is, I must ask myself why I'm not manifesting it. When I see what's standing in my way, I can move beyond it.

Anytime I am looking to somebody else as my source, I'm coming from scarcity. I am no longer trusting God, or the Universe, for my harvest. It's reasonable for me to have expectations based on what somebody I trust has committed to. And it's natural for me to feel disappointed when that somebody doesn't come through. But when I feel more than disappointment, when I also feel anger, it's because I deviated from my truth. It's because I compromised my truth to get what somebody else promised. Because when I'm really following my truth, I will be at peace with the consequences ù whatever they are. I can accept somebody else's truth, but I must live my own truth. And sometimes that means walking away from a relationship.

As I was snuggling back into my bed after getting up to use the bathroom, I breathed a little, ""This must be like heaven."" I love my bed. I love the ""ahh"" that comes with getting warm and smelling fresh sheets. I also love how it feels to get clean when I'm dirty and eat when I'm hungry. So, I'm thinking that maybe we still get cold, and dirty, and hungry in heaven. And, that's going to help me enjoy getting cold, and dirty, and hungry in earth (or in this body) just a little bit more.

When I am me, I can see me in my space. My desk faces the window and an ocean. The flower on my desk gives off a wonderful aroma. The refrigerator has something in it I feel good about eating. When I am me, I can see me in my day. I am writing. I am talking from a heart of love. I am reviewing my notes, or editing, or walking, or something outside. I am connecting with nature and people.

I want to come from love. And I want to do it all the time. I can't expect it to always look the same, though. I remember a friend saying that God loved his daughter enough to say no something he had a hard time with. Sometimes love says, No, this doesn't work for me. Sometimes love walks away ... because staying would conflict with loving and being true to who we are. And, staying would make it very difficult to come from love.

I have been sick, really sick, on flights in the last few weeks. And, I have been amazed by the kindness of strangers. There is, indeed, something about vulnerability that helps us to connect with people even when we're holding one of those little bags from the seat pocket of an airplane.
