Here are a few borrowed thoughts that, at just the right time, reminded me to say, “YES” to the power within me. Maybe one of you is stuck in a moment where they will also help you.
“Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.
That’s the super-short version of my advice for those moments when nothing seems to be going as planned—when everything you want seems out of reach.
Yes, just be right where you are, with an open mind.
Let go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and sincerely appreciate it for everything that it is.
Easier said than done of course, especially when tragedy strikes. Let’s be honest about something. Ninety eight percent of the time we create tragedy in our lives out of fairly minor incidents. Something doesn’t go exactly as planned, but rather than learn from the experience, we freak out about it and let stress become us.
My challenge for you today is to choose differently—don’t let the little things that are out of your control dominate you!
Truth be told, the biggest difference between peace and stress is attitude. It’s all about how you look at a situation and what you decide to do with it. It’s remembering that there are no certainties in life—you don’t know exactly what the future will bring. So, your best strategy for living is to make the best and most positive use of the present moment, even when it disappoints you…
Especially when it disappoints you!
How disappointed would you be to get 20 years down the road and discover you were made to appreciate and enjoy life, while all you did was resist and doubt it?
Your life, with all its ups and downs, with all its unexpected twists and turns, has molded you for the greater good. Your life has been exactly what it needed to be up to this point. Don’t think you’ve lost time. Don’t think you haven’t arrived. It took each and every intricate and confusing situation you have encountered to bring you to right here, right now.
And if you have the courage to admit that you’re a little scared, the ability to smile even as you cry, the nerve to ask for help when you need it, and the wisdom to take it when it’s offered, then you have everything you need at this moment.
You just have to believe it, so you can take the next step. Seriously, nothing is out of reach when you realize it’s all in your head.”

You are not alone.
You are not your circumstances.
You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
