Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
We often hear the phrase "the magic of the holidays". And it's true, there are those special moments around the holidays where we feel that warmth of love, where people smile at each other more often, or are perhaps a little bit kinder, more generous, and more loving. It's that magic of coming together with family or friends, or that feeling when we've all exhaled from the planning or preparing, and get to sit back and enjoy the feelings of joy, peace, and calm. It's truly magical! So, how can we replicate that "magical" feeling when the holidays have passed? How can we have it for the whole year? For every day of our life? Start by simply asking yourself this...
“How far can my imagination take me?”
What do you want to create for yourself and others now and in the coming year?
Remember that the foundation for a truly joyful, happy, and fun-filled life comes from radiating love from your very core. It comes from feeling this love for yourself, and sending it out to everyone and everything around you. When you do this, those special Holiday feelings of peace, calm and magic fall into place. The true wonders and joy of the season begin to unfold, and you can begin to create a life beyond what you ever imagined possible.
Because we create everything in our lives based on how we feel, when we are feeling love for ourselves and everything around us, we can create that peace and happiness of the holidays that we are searching for. This is when the "magic and miracles" happen. It’s when we have that "faith of a certainty" and we know that we can achieve the things that truly bring us joy. We can create whatever our imagination can conjure...whatever it is that our hearts truly desire.
Here’s an easy way to begin.
Take some time to be quiet and calm today and go within. While you’re in the shower or riding in the car, or when you take your "me time" today, take your mind to that magical place where you can start dreaming about what you would truly love to have in your life today. Feel the joy of it!
Stop and ask yourself, “What does my heart truly desire?” Say the answer out loud and write it down. Don’t let your current reality get in the way. Just begin to be honest and open to a new reality that says everything is possible. Why?
Because, the biggest thing that stops us from having what we desire is that we rarely go beyond what we think is possible. We seldom take our imagination beyond the reality of our current experiences and what we believe is possible.
Throughout life, we have been told so often to "be realistic," that we can’t even imagine what other possibilities exist for us. We think that we need to be realistic with our wants and dreams. And when we have these "realistic" (or "limited") wishes, we live a realistic and limited life.
This will continue to be the case until we let our imagination run free. Then, something amazing begins to happen! We take our lives to another level, beyond what we have ever thought possible... beyond what we’ve ever had before. But, in order do that, we need to start with that magical wish. We need to know what we would like to have. We need to leave the realistic approach behind if we want to take our lives to a completely new level.
This is the time of year to truly unleash your imagination! It’s the time of year to tap into the creative power you have by knowing (through love, gratitude and fun) that you can create a life that you love.
So, start today! Think about what you want, and know that the reality you see in front of you is not permanent. You must allow yourself to dream about what you want before you can ever possibly have it.
It's time to have some good old fashion child-like fun today. Be the real you, come out of hiding, and tell yourself what you want your life to look like as you go into the New Year. Feel the love of the season, be grateful for all that you have right now, and during this blessed time of year...begin to Dream Big!
Have an absolutely magical day and a wonderful holiday full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, fun!
