Summon Your power of Acceptance

I ask what does acceptance really mean, and what does proactive have to do with it.? Have there been instances in your life, especially when you hear words such as… “accept it, there’s nothing you can do?”  Does it pertain to accepting being treated like a door mat, putting up with everything and anything that people throw your way while biting your lip when you know your screaming inside  because you want so badly to give that person a piece of your mind. Or is it where you come out to the car to find someone has scratched your new paint job or when you’re in a hurry to only find the tire is flat?

Not Now!

Not Now!

 Allow me to share a story:

A friend rang asking for help today from where she works at an on-site newly constructed complex on Sundays. She shows newly developed models for apartments and on arriving realized the front tire of the car had picked up a puncture from the debris of the construction.  Mind you now, she’s concerned because the tire is rapidly losing pressure and if nothing is done pronto, she’s stuck. After all, on a Sunday there are few, if any tire shops open.

Of All The Days

What does a tire puncture have to do with acceptance, you ask?  Well under normal circumstances, this is enough to make a person anxious, because now we’re talking about choices involving time constraints. She could complain and be upset about working on a Sunday with no-one there to help, spend the day cursing the builders or the company for not having cleaned or cleared the parking area, or be proactive.

On receiving the call,  her voice sounded anxious about leaving the job after only just arriving, especially now since that would mean opening the office late on her first day.  She could open and wait till the end of the day, change the tire herself and put on the donut tire, or chance it going to find the nearest open tire repair shop before it becomes completely deflated, risking it riding on the rims, which would cause further damage or possibly an accident.

When I arrived we manage to safely get to a shop that was open, and in our discovery found the screw had gone straight through, which was the reason for rapid air loss.  I followed her back to work, where she parked in the next establishment’s open parking lot because they were closed for the weekend.

On my way out, it began apparent, I too had driven into the new construction site complex and it would be smart to check my tires as well.  My mind began to run away with the what-ifs, which I quickly put to rest and turned on music.

If you’ve never been in a situation like hers, than you’re one of the fortunate ones.  However, what I found interesting was how well she handled the incident.  Sandy assessed the situation but did not allow herself to be paralyzed to take action.  She accepted it as being so, and acted proactively.  How many times have you (I) found ourselves in (maybe not the exact chain of events), but similar with no-one at your immediate disposal to help and you panic out of fear?

Life can throw some curve balls that catch us off guard and before you know it, the element of fear consumes thoughts, paralyzing action. Fear has stopped many a person in their steps for great opportunities, where when the chaos involving the matter is over, only then in hind-sight, memories of those incidents and how they could have been handled without reacting to fear come to mind.

You see, no matter where or what comes at you, when you stop to accept in that moment, resisting anger, frustration, or rage, you are opening a way for a greater understanding which then allows you to become proactive rather then act on emotions based on fear.  Very little is accomplished out of fear that clouds the mind. Like Sandy, by putting her fear(s) in check, she was able to think clearly which enabled her to be proactive,  turning what could have taken another course, into a win-win situation both for her car and her peace of mind.

Summon your power of acceptance, and that power will allow you to become proactive for the win-wins in your life.

“Complaining co…

“Complaining continues to create the vibration of what you don’t want. Today, take your focus off of what is wrong and focus on what is right and how you desire things to be. Put all your love, energy, mental power and decision making towards what you want and do not entertain thoughts that are to the contrary. You are MORE responsible for the way you feel than your environment, circumstances or relationships. Step towards Love today, step towards the solution.”

“Excitement must lead to immediate action or you will lose the power of momentum. More dreams die because we fail to seize the moment. Do it now!”

– Tony Robbins, a TOP motivational speaker and author.

I was visually reminded of how important it is keep the power of momentum alive in moments of excitement, I’ve had the opportunity today of discovering a  fellow blogger Fabulous50’s   who lives in her power of momentum. 🙂  Loving it.

Oh.. The Joys of Being Today’s 50’s Woman

Title sound strange ? Well don’t get bent out of shape over it.  It’s my expression and I’m liking it and that’s the cool thing about blogging.

Hi Guys,

It’s Friday evening here, and as my day winds down, this gives me a chance to share how amazed I am by all of the intriguing people here in the blogosphere  with their suggestions of various food, fashion, dreams, languages, points of view, life hurdles,  conquest, exciting adventures and the causes they support.   It’s one colossal smorgasbord where you could encounter a moral boost, encouragement to take action, a light that  sparks or ignites imaginable dreams, or find answers to questions. If you should manage to give or find intrinsic value to why you blog, or read someone else’s blog(s), then the time spent is worth its weight in gold.

They're Everywhere

They’re Everywhere

In this blogosphere, of innumerable opportunity you get to decide, if you’d like to take part to venture into the life of fellow blogger(s), as you share, make new friendships, acquaintances, travel buddies, teach or be taught by those you connect with globally.

LoL

LOL

I’d like to share with you lifestyle possibilities  in which Today’s 50’s Woman finds a sense of reward, unlike the woman of the 50’s, who could only dream, limited by the expectations of that era.  No I’m not being compensated in any way for this endorsement :-). I’m just cool like that, wanting you all to be a part in seeing and knowing how some of us strong, independent thinking women live. Why not? To see people like TravelSpirit333 (that’s her handle by the way,) oh, that’s right this is not ham-radio, but boy is she living, or  is she living.  Looks like taking action to live life’s experiences  to me, it’s hands down living in my book.

I'm in for the chocolate

I’m in for the chocolate

Now let’s meet our fellow blogger TravelSpirit333 mentioned in the previous paragraph  who has not allowed the typical stereotypes attached to age to limit her in being adventurous.  It surely re-ignited and got me to think of what limitations I have allowed to be imposed on me because of age.

This is to all of the women out there who have reached or believe that reaching  the  50 marker of life  is old; and know it’s time for re-programming of what the majority thinks is expected at that age.  We women are powerful, magnificent energetic beings even at 50.

Another Today's 50's Woman

Another Today’s 50’s Woman

By the way we’re not a woman that is 50 years old, like when someone exclaims,”you’re 50, yet you don’t look it!” What the hell does that mean anyway? Is that really a compliment, after all what is 50 supposed to look like, praytell?  We have women that are revamping life after the divorce, to only find the fellas that are 50 avoiding them, thinking they’re too old also.  Yeah you heard me. Just eat your heart out when you see women like them, a victoriously youthful soul of a woman.

And what’s with statistics telling us, we have to count each year only to be lumped into a database group of some sort. (Who they trying to fool?).  I consider myself as being – Today’s 50’s Woman, (just without the ish on the end of 50.) What is an ish anyway? 🙂  I just will not claim the term old, throwing off the assumptions of having to act and be  whatever old is.  I know, I know, there’s a definition for old, but who cares?

It’s nice to evolve in our own uniqueness, discovering our higher self, where we are able to find a kind of peace in what brings us the greatest joys for our life.

I invite all that envision life as full, joyful, abundant and limitless to come on over and comment.

Much Luv…

Affirmation-Yoga-Sutra-Mantra

Mantra the Sankrit root definition is “man” to think, and “tra” to liberate thought through vibrations and sounds to awaken the life force within.

Yoga Sutra is not merely physical fitness, but to pursue the depths of self-exploration, a systematic journey directly to the center of consciousness, mindful and aware of thought, to awaken the inner- consciousness.

Systematic Journey

Systematic Journey

Affirmations akin to aphorisms are phrases, powerful belief statements with the purpose of suggestion or auto-suggestion. The objective is to awaken within the unconscious area of mind, the sub conscious and super conscious, referred to as the “infra conscious.”

And So Are You

And So Are You

All forms of methodology at best.

Psychologist are beginning to give more credence to phenomena of the hidden planes of the mind and its unexplored regions, as they shift thinking, realizing that the knowledge that they have come to know, is in fact made up of the unknown and in-cognizable.

On many occasions, it is my realization that that which I thought I knew, I really know very little at all. Where old opinions held so close, have become replaced with new ones.

Consciousness plays only a small role in wider complexities of action and emotion. It is the effects that we are conscious of when we experience love, fear, joy, ease, or anger.

So when you find yourself consciously practicing a methodology, be it prayer, meditation, songs or praise, affirmationsmantra or yoga sutra, remember it’s not the organization of your attendance that enlarges the higher self, nor the phrases of suggestion or auto-suggestion alone. It is the unconscious, unexplainable life force that shapes, molds and designs on our actions, feelings and thoughts as we create our reality.

You have chosen to walk the face of this planet in all your splendor and magnitude. You are not depraved of life, love or joy, but the reflections of all you see yourself to be.  Stand tall, walk upright, not down-trodden or timid. You abound of energy, fortitude and clarity.  It is nonsense to believe anything other. Dance as you linger in the presence of self, radiantly alive.

You are a Beautiful Spirit, having a Human Experience, playing in the realm of the “infra conscious.”

Now why is that in wrapping this up, I am feeling Lionel Richie’s song,  “All Night Long.” 🙂
