Resilience, Responsibility & Faith

Regret and fear are hallmarks of the Ego, that survival mechanism that would keep us  “safe” and small, and have us forget our commitments. The ego would rob us of the joy of the present. What can we do to stay present-focused and engaged with our dreams and desires? What can we do to show up for life each day coming from our Core Essence, our Authentic Self? First, remain active. Active meaning,  “actively conscious,” aware of what you want and where you are going. Second, write down and check off the “actions” you are taking each day and each week to  move you toward your creation, the manifestation of your goals. And third, have a structured self-care program to support you in the spiritual, physical, mental and emotional areas of your life. Standing firm in being responsible for yourself in every way in every day means you truly can let “tomorrow belong to God.” You are flexible, faithful, and resilient.  All is well. As they say in Australia, “No worries.”
