As I sit surrounded by my mountain view and morning coffee, I realize that Celebration of Yourself is the way to a joyful life, especially now. We really don't savor ourselves, revel in our wonder or spend enough time really feeling good about ourselves. We are so busy contemplating what needs to change, how we can be better, how we feel bad for this or that and it is such a waste of life. Especially when we will always be learning, growing and expanding. So change and newness will always be part of things. Rather than focus on what has gone arye, it seems more healthful to focus on how great we are doing and how far we have come.
Growing and adjusting from this space of celebration gives greater energy for change. We can revel in the successes and lessons we have learned when faced with a challenge or someway to change. We can call on the things we have done right, what worked and didn't to move forward. We move from a place of success rather than mistake. We all learn the same things in different ways. There is no A plus B equals C. Especially these days. Who knows what will work going forward. Creativity is called for and innovative thinking. You can't conjure these things when you are in a negative mindset. They often come about when you are open with no limitations in mind. Brainstorming comes from a playful, open mindset of no limitations.
If we live a life, that will bring in challenge and growth, why have we been taught to consider mistake and error as a problem. When we see the world this way, avoiding error, then we don't open ourselves to expansion as freely. We also think we will get things perfect the first time with enough "thinking it through". Yet we all know, it just doesn't work that way. We can think things through as much as we want, plan and organize and there still is a chance that it won't work out. Even when we considered all we could, the world has it's own way and the variables to unpredictable. I grew up with this limited way and it makes no sense.
Often we look at why that won't work, that won' t happen, and then it has no chance. We also carry many burdens of mistakes that weigh down our potential for we think we should find our way faster, or be like another or our stupid trials make us less or feel less. This whole idea of celebration is gone. It is more about berating ourselves than enjoying our progress. It is about how we could of, should of better rather than what we did do right. No matter how well we did, this virus shows us, conditions are unpredictable and the best laid plans mean little. No expansion could occur if we kept doing what we were taught. Science has reversed it's ideas in many ways now on how we evolve. Evolution itself a trial situation. There are no rules to new ways.
I inspire you to see the world and yourself from a place of celebration. The innovators, out of the box thinking and creative ways are what will support us forward at this unpredictable time. Those who don't follow the path of usual will be more adaptable to these new conditions. Being unique, celebrating themselves and our unusual ways will bring success forward and remind us that our path brought us the skills to go move ahead. Perhaps we finally have cracked the shell of be like everyone else. Comparison, conformity, "doing the right way" no longer apply for we are all learning together.
We have the time to reflect these days. We can reflect on how in many scenarios, we found our way out and continue to survive and exist. These are powerful ways to think in a time of adversity. Power comes from feeling our greatness, reveling in our survival through life and celebrating what we have figured out. Our old teachings have had their shelf life and a new way of doing and being is on the table. We can start by reveling in celebration of ourselves. Really see what we have done well and ride the energy of that, knowing once again we will find our way. Starting from the power of strength, realizing that despite all the pickles we have been in or mistakes we made, we got through even the darkest of days.
Our fear of error, doing it wrong and being judged has got to go. We all have had our trials. We all have messed up as we call it. We all have had failure time and again so why do we avoid these things or judge them. So much beauty, strength, innovation and creativity come from these things. In fact, these things are the very ground work for us to be our unique brilliance! It is time to realize that mistake is not a problem. It is a stepping stone to greatness. The more we mess up, the more brilliant we become. It is not the other way around. Our greatness comes from trial and error, the ability to preserve from the trials and go onward still. This is the measure of self we should be tallying. Our ability to get up again, try further and ultimately make it anyway.
So celebrate yourself in these times of reflection and slow pace. Find ways to nurture you, revel in the wonders you have created, the challenges you have moved past. This creates bright, joyful, enthusiastic energy and power. From here you can go one more round, use our uniqueness of past experience to soar in a new way. This is really what is occurring anyway. We will find a way to get through. We will move forward in life as we always do. Perhaps this break is enough to remind us that live goes on. We survive and thrive again and again. This is the cycle. Try, fail, preserve, succeed. Be enthused with yourself! Care deeply for your power and creativity! Enhance your state in whatever way you can. This will support us forward. This creates joy, happiness and enthusiasm. This is delicious energy to go onward with.
Do Celebrate Yourself! At this time, it is the wisest thing you can do!
