Essentially, we are always either creating from a place of Love (above the line) or Fear (below the line). We’re always at choice about this (whether we believe it or not). In every day, we have the opportunity to choose how we want to move through the world – to see the world, through the lens of love or fear. Even when life throws you an unexpected curve ball, you get to react from fear or respond from love.
Can you pause and notice, what’s your predominate perspective in each day? Is it above the line or below the line? Then ask yourself, what do you want more of? What’s needed to have more of what you want?
As I was writing this, I had an interesting conversation randomly with two people about this very thing. The one gentleman was literally retiring today and leaving to move to Arizona. FINALLY, he could do what he Wanted after 35 years of working for the University. I felt very sad for him. I thought, why wait your whole life to Allow yourself to have what you really want and do what really makes you happy? The other man who still was waiting out his tenure to retire, proceeded to tell me essentially, “I can’t be happy and have my pension too…” I beg to differ.
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” ― Oscar Wilde
Maybe you think I’m being Pollyanna here but I can say with great conviction that actually you can do work you love and be happy and get paid well to do it – IF you’re willing to take the risk of stepping beyond the edge of your comfort zone and perceived “safety”.
Back to my earlier point, it’s a choice. No matter what comes at you in each day, it’s a conscious practice to choose love over fear. You can choose to have the false illusion of “security” in job with a pension, or heed the calling of your heart to do something that is more in alignment with your passions AND find a way to get paid for it too. Millions of people do this, simply because in their mind, the alternative is inconceivable.
The key is to do more of what lights you up and brings you joy in each day. As you find a path that allows you to honor your core values, utilizes your natural strengths and talents and gives you the opportunity to continually move past your fears for the sake of something bigger than yourself, then, you’ll have found the “zone” or the “sweet spot” as I like to call it. This is the place where things seem to flow more easily too you. Success will find you in this place and you will be provided for. It’s a matter of being courageous enough to trust in yourself and in your divine spirit to have the path unfold before you as you go.
So how can you choose more love in each day?
Love for yourself, by taking a path that honors all of your gifts, talents and genius.
Love for others, by sharing that genius with us all.
