I have gone back and forth about a gazillion times trying to choose what topic to write about today. 

And I know it’s not a bad case of “the Fridays.” (on a Tuesday)

It has nothing to do with being distracted. It’s gotta do with a minor “growth bump.” (the spiritual version of a speed bump : )

There’s a feeling of vulnerability in my life right now—that’s new to me. Not that I haven’t felt vulnerable before, but this one is a bit different.

So I started thinking about what has changed. Things are better actually. Things are percolating. Those things I asked to manifest—are manifesting.

So why the twinge of vulnerability + uncomfortableness?

I am feeling  at  bit of pressure. Pressure to provide content that is life changing, world rocking and DEEP.  And pressure to keep up, to do it all, be it all and have it all. 

And then I said to myself . . . . . “Oh stop it Carrie!”

Stop with that unnecessary self indulgent pressure.

Stop with thinking that it’s even about me!

Stop worrying about getting it right, getting it done and especially, about changing the world.

Just relax and enjoy it.

Do we really need to have it all, be it all and do it all?  I think not. I think the day to day journey and the experiences we create—are the true gifts.

Those  life experiences that fill us up, enrich us and make us feel alive from head to toe—that’s what it’s all about.

And in all honesty, does the world even need changing? I don’t think so. I think our view towards the world could use a bit of care and consideration though. 

It doesn’t benefit any of us to see the world (or our lives) as broken, needing to be fixed or not enough.

It matters that we focus on what’s good and nurture the vibration of “what’s right and good” and not “what’s wrong and horrible.”  (our culture loves to focus on what’s wrong…and hows’ that working out?)

We need to get back to feeling good and focusing on the fact that we are vibrational beings, living in a vibrational world.

Your vibe = Your life.  And your vibe = your choice.

Therefore, your life = your choices ( it’s like an algebra problem, but without numbers! )

I’ll keep saying it over and over again. You may not have a choice with every little thing that happens in life—but you always have a choice in how you feel, what you think and how you react to things.

That’s where the magic happens. It’s where you can start creating miracles out of thin air.

Possible? Absolutely (But only if you think it is. You’ve got to at least have a tiny glimmer of hope that it’s possible for you.)

And the spiritual growth bump I mentioned earlier—it’s simply a beautiful reminder of being on track.

When we desire changes in our lives—improved relationships, a new career, more happiness, better health—we will almost always go through  bit of discomfort when going through those changes. These spiritual growth bumps (or hurdles, changes, roadblocks) are simply loving reminders from the universe that we are on track, growing and getting closer to our dreams and desires.

Because we aren’t here to be bored, to feel stuck or miserable. We aren’t here to be unhappy.

We are meant to enjoy life. We are meant to grow, to seek and to feel FRISKY AND ALIVE!

Happy, happy holidays!

Big blessings,

Carrie
