Hi, this is your friend Moira Shepard with this Miracle Minute.
Here are some thoughts from American inspirational speaker and writer Mike Dooley:
Reality isn’t black and white, answers don’t have to be yes or no, and absolutely nothing has to happen today. Act when you’re ready. Be led by your feelings. And the next time someone wants to fit you into a mold, just tell ’em that your jeans are in the wash, your angel’s at the mall, and Oprah’s on the other line.
We spend so much time “shoulding” on ourselves. “I should do this” – “I should feel like that” – “I should never have done that.”
“Shoulds” seem to blanket us like a heavy snowfall during the holidays. We should invite this person to the party, even though we dislike them; we should complete that project before the end of the year; we should have spent less (or more) on that gift, and so forth.
As a holiday present to yourself, how would you like to ease up a little and relax?
The key is to, literally, get in the present. Quit hauling yesterday’s frustrations into today. Let go of borrowing anxiety from tomorrow.
Easier said than done? Maybe. How would you like to start doing this instantly?
Would it be okay to show you who you are and how to live your life, living in the present now?
Would you like to know how to be your authentic self now without losing love or arousing resentment in your friends and loved ones?
Would you like to know how free you are and how safe it is to do things because you want to, rather than because you should, and what will happen if you do?
Would you like to know how lovable – and beloved – the authentic You really is?
If so, say “Yes” out loud now* and feel the energy flowing in through the top of your head.
Now, notice how you feel. Notice what’s different about your life in the coming week. And if you give thanks for those changes, it will trigger more miracles.
That’s your Miracle Minute with Moira Shepard. Have a miraculous day!
