Good Apple/Bad Apple

badapple

I love pictures. They really are worth a thousand words. This picture is one I considered using for The 2 Choices—because to me, it really does a pretty good job of eliciting a response.

One apple is looking good, the other is looking oh, so sad.

One is bright, full of life, healthy and tasty. It’s gonna taste good and most likely, will be an overall good experience.

The other, however, really doesn’t look too appealing. It probably isn’t going to taste that good and may even get you sick. It’s not nice to look at and, well, the one on the left is going to be the most obvious best choice—in most cases.

If you didn’t catch a glimpse already—here is the link to my recently featured article in the ever so amazing Elephant Journal. 

It’s aptly called — “Choosing to feel good in the middle of a sh*t storm.”  

Aptly called that—because that is what we do here.

We don’t survive. We thrive. 

We thrive no matter what comes our way + we learn, we grow, we get back to the truth of who we are, underneath whatever armor and self created walls we have created (and lovingly, and innocently, to protect our hearts. 

Happiness-5This will be short, sweet + succinct.

Brevity . . . . ah . . . . . my FAVORITE.

If you’re reading “me” for the first time, I write about spiritual stuff, the power of choice + living lives that seriously curl your toes, put a zip in your step and make you tingle all over. 

Great, big, tingles. 

But what about when shit goes down that doesn’t feel so tingly? When things aren’t lining up for you? When the sparkle has left the romance, the deals aren’t going through, the happiness isn’t happening and those pounds aren’t staying off?

If I stumbled across this heading, I would probably be like . . . no way!

Get outta here. Only two?

No one is gonna tell me I only have two choices! I mean come on, we live for our choices, don’t we?

This one is gonna be good!  

It’s about re-invention.

I LOVE RE-ANYTHING!  IT SIGNIFIES A  FRESH START.  It means we get to re-do, re-claim, re-focus, re-learn, re-love, re-choose + re-member.

Want better health, more wealth, that hunky love partner, or world peace? You get to reinvent what that means for you now. 

Dear Souls . . . there is truly no need to EVER freak out or be worried about things. Worry is not a vibration that attracts what you want.

Worrying isn’t high vibration (and plus it feels horrible)

The Top 10

Carrie’s Top 10 List—The Big Kahunas (the things that have impacted my life on a grand + top10spectacular scale)   

 

  • Commitment to awareness. This has to top my list, because without this in the lead—there wouldn’t be a list. I wouldn’t really think about it. I would be largely unaware of my life. In the past, I “lived” life asleep on so many levels. Asleep and numb to how I really felt, what I really wanted and what was truly possible. And when I made the choice to step into being committed to being aware (of my feelings, my thoughts, my reactions and the overall vibe of my life)—I began to get way more tuned into what truly mattered to me. Once you know what you truly desire—you are one step closer to receiving it. 

My blog—among many other things—is a spiritual blog. 

 It is a blog about living life awake, aware and happy. And about choosing what we love—what lights us up inside.

And even the word spiritual is so watered down that it doesn’t even come close to what I want to convey. 

It isn’t a blog about pushing and struggling to find ones purpose. It is about just being true to you.

About being happy. About enjoying life. It’s about setting all the shoulds, woulds and coulds aside—that have kept so many of us prisoners in our own lives—and getting quiet and really listening to your soul. 

I am all about energy.  You are all about energy (whether you believe it or not). Life is all about energy.

After years of trying to figure out how to manifest what I wanted (and boatloads of failures) what I realized is that I was trying to pretend my way into things, rather than actually feeling my way into them—authentically.  And then there were other times, that I just wasn’t being conscious at all about how I was feeling. I just sort of  letting my feelings run the show.
