Happy Leap Day!

Ok, so we got an extra day this year, what are we going to do with it? Maybe one of our questions to finding out what to do with it, is to ask  “Do you like where you are?”

If we don’t like where we are, does that mean we’re condemned to stay there? Are we also condemned to constantly do penance for where we are? As we mentioned before in a previous blog: Absolutely not. …

Often what keeps us stuck and continually doing penance is the very feeling that we must pay for our lack of action. We become caught in a circle of self-blame, condemn ourselves, feel hopeless, and feed the fire—or slow burn—by reciting like a mantra our history of inertia and self-judged wrong choices. Well, let’s use this extra day to break that dead-end cycle of waste and regret.

On this leap day let’s to stop the incessant self-judgments and accept ourselves on a new basis—to accept that every moment of our lives has been part of an all-encompassing Purpose, and that this Purpose proceeds by divine order.

When you acknowledge the workings of divine order, you see your life not as a consummate failure but as an evolving, orderly progression. Even though we may not see the purpose of each event, meeting or happening at a given moment, each piece fits.

Become freer from the self-defeating thoughts and labels that have kept you down. You’ll start to shed your old habits of negating yourself and ease gently into the splendid clothes of deserving. In these new clothes, which are much more than zipper-deep, you’ll begin to blossom and develop your talents and abilities, as you’ve always secretly known you could.

Let’s now use this extra day and LEAP into new thought patterns and splendid clothes of deserving!

Happy Leap Day!

Procrastination

Let’s talk about procrastination. This is something we all are guilty of from time to time (some more than others!). It is commonly referred to as “the thief of time”, but is is it really? Or is it just the excuse we use to stall or not do something? Some of us go as far as cloaking it is the guise of “getting ready”. Yeah, you know that thing we call preparation.

Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with preparation, the problem arises when we are stuck in constant preparation mode! This is when we are always “preparing” to the do or get something.

We need to stop and assess and identify when the preparation is becoming or has become a procrastination strategy. This strategy is when we tell ourselves that we need to “prepare” for whatever our goals are, and we put off fulfilling  the goals because we are “preparing”. It is really a stalling tactic, a con game, and we don’t make a move because we feel we are not fully prepared or we are not ready yet.

We have to “stop the coming and come already“. We need to stop procrastinating, stop the preparing and get to it. Stop making a career out of just laying the foundation, get a move on and start building on the foundation.
