We are all constantly fluctuating in so many ways. We ebb and flow, like the waves crashing on the beach, then retreating into the water. We shrink and expand, we learn and forget, and our sleeping patterns change. Our diet isn’t always consistent, and chemically and hormonally, we aren’t always stable. We make choices, experiment with new knowledge and practices, take actions, experience emotions, speak words, and think thoughts which are different every, single day.
These things are all part of the human experience. It’s normal. It’s better than okay-it’s PERFECT. We are ALWAYS exactly where we need to be for changes to take effect in our lives. In this way, life is SO beautiful.
We are ALWAYS changing, with the idea in mind that these changes are always beneficial in helpful in empowering ways, which causes us to grow, progress, evolve, and improve. Doing our best and falling short of expectations and goals still empowers us, builds momentum, and helps us to change and grow. All results are feedback, information teaching us how to upgrade.
None of us are the same person we were a year ago. It is important to remember this of others, as well. Allowing grace for others in the form of forgiveness, empathy, acceptance, patience, understanding, kindness, and the opportunity we would want for ourselves, allowing them to prove with their actions that they have changed and will do better, provides the same opportunities for ourselves.
THE ENERGY WE PUT OUT INTO THE UNIVERSE TENDS TO ALWAYS COME BACK TO US.
Criticizing someone today for the actions of yesterday is a waste of time and energy, especially if that person is trying to become better, to grow, and to progress. This is especially helpful to remember when we criticize ourselves. In these cases, it is better to encourage the behaviors and actions we want to see MORE of in others, and in ourselves. At times we may be tempted to allow that inner voice to judge, criticize, and condemn us, but we can choose instead to quiet that negative inner voice and listen more for the encouraging voice which gives us hope of a better experience now and a more enjoyable tomorrow.
We all can change. Let us encourage, uplift, and enlighten ourselves and one another all along the way. Instead of criticizing, let us compliment. Instead of pessimism and negativity, let us choose optimism and positivity. Let us all give support to others and ourselves as we all strive to be the best we can be. Cooperation results in connection, and connecting with others results in a more optimal life experience in every way.
CONTRASTING EXPERIENCES ARE THE GREATEST INFORMANT OF WHAT WE WANT TO EXPERIENCE MORE OF AND WHAT WE WANT TO EXPERIENCE LESS OF. IF WE CHOOSE TO EXPERIMENT WITH EVERYTHING, AND ONLY KEEP WHAT WORKS FOR US, UPGRADING QUICKLY IS EASIER.
Today I will remember that we all change and we are all doing the best we can for today, with what we now know and have to work with. Today, I will think, speak, and act on an opportunity to show myself and someone else support in some way.
