It’s Time to Change Direction

On May 2, 2007 I made the first major change in the direction I was headed.  I changed direction because I did not want to end up where I was going.  At the time I was consumed with severe depression, addiction, misery and unhappiness.  I knew if I didn’t change direction it would only get worse.  I did what I had to do ~ I took a fearless leap of faith toward my own true happiness.  This change in direction was a major turning point in my life.  It gave me what I knew I had lost, what I knew was already a natural part of who I am ~ it gave me peace, joy, love, well-being and true happiness.   You see, when I changed direction, not only did I wake up, but I also left the past behind.  I lived in the moment with great delight of creating a new life for myself.  I could be, have, or do whatever I desired!

“If we don’t change the direction we are headed, we will end up where we are going.”  – Jodi Picoult

From that day forward I have continued to change direction for the sole purpose of enhancing my life and of bringing more joy and happiness into my experience.  This doesn’t mean I was headed down a bad road, it simply means that as I learn and grow from life experiences, the more I want what is best for me.  The more I want to experience a variety of joy and happiness.  I don’t want to live life anymore.  I want to BE life.  

You don’t have to be in a bad place or headed down a dark road to change direction.  Think about where you are and where you want to go.  Now ask yourself if what you are doing is going to take you there.  Is how you are living your life right now going to take you to where you want to go?  If you don’t want to end up where you are going it is time to change direction.  It doesn’t matter where you are, what you have, or what you don’t have, you have the power to change direction at any time.  The only thing stopping you is you.  How you change direction is entirely up to you.  It could be through changing your thought patterns or eating habits. It could be through finding a new job, moving to a new city, ending a relationship, starting a relationship, trying new things, meeting new people, exploring new places, walking instead of running, starting a meditation or exercise practice.  The possibilities are endless.  It doesn’t really matter how you change direction, as long as you change it.  If it gets you to where you want to go then you can’t go wrong! 

It is that time again for me to change direction.  Where I am headed could very easily turn into something wonderful, but I want more for myself.  I don’t necessarily mean material things either.  I just want to live as fully as I can through my Inner Life and right now I am not doing that.  I’ve been trying to, but I haven’t been trying hard enough.  I have been allowing myself to get bogged down with too much garbage rolling around in my head.  I have been living too much in my outer life instead of in and through my Inner Life.  So with that said, I am changing direction to allow an overall better feeling about myself and to create another new life.   So now, is it time for YOU to change direction? 

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be. – Cindy Ortiz

Only You Know Why

86-1Sometimes we lose our way.  Sometimes we revert back to old negative patterns of behavior.  Why?  Only you know why.  At first you may not even realize it.  You may chalk it up to a bad day.  But before you know it, that bad day is now a bad month(s) or a bad year(s).  Then one day you wake up with that god awful feeling in the pit of your stomach.  You wake up seeing the truth ~ you have no clue who you are anymore.  You are destroying your life.  You lay there wondering how you got to where you are.  You wonder what happened to you.  You ask yourself, where did I go?  Where did I lose my way?  Where did I become so out of tune with my Inner Life that I allowed this to happen? Rest assured, you can change all of this.  All it takes is the will and determination to do so.

Taking Complete Responsibility for Your Life Changes Your Life

76-2Life may seem daunting to you right now, but let’s look at the bright side.  Yes, there is a bright side.  Through your awareness of where you are and where you want to be, you can now begin to build or re-build the life you so desire. There may be unwanted consequences along the way, but the most important thing for you to remember and focus on is where you want to be.  It doesn’t matter where anyone else is, this is completely about you.  Taking ownership of your life, your mistakes and/or your regrets will change everything, but you have to allow the change.  You have to want to change for your own personal well-being and happiness.  No one can do it for you.  Living in the past or holding onto what you once had will only hinder your growth, slow your progress forward, and keep you out of tune with your Inner Life.

Every Choice You Make Has An Outcome

27-2Regardless of where you are, be here now, be present in this time.  It is vital for this to be solely about you.  You have to be your #1 priority and you have to be honest with yourself.  It is time to stand strong and take the first step toward personal freedom.  Free yourself from all the negativity and pain.  Yes, I know you are hurting, but you can do this.  You know what you need to do.  You know where to go if you need help or guidance.  There is nothing to be afraid of.  True happiness, joy, peace, well-being, abundance and love are all waiting for you.  

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be. – Cindy Ortiz

Do You Have Inner Freedom

820Inner freedom is the illumination of all that we are.  It has an untouchable power and positive energy force that guides us throughout our personal journey.  It keeps us in tune with the greater part of who we truly are, with our Inner Life.

Inner freedom is being totally free from negativity, pain and unhappiness. You do not have inner freedom when you are twisted in knots or bound by your outer life afflictions, or if you are filled with any level of discomfort.

If you want inner freedom you have to let go of all the turbulence in your life.  It doesn’t matter if it’s in the past or in the present, you have to let it go or nothing will change.  If you open your heart and listen you will know what or who is keeping you from your inner freedom. If you want true and lasting peace, joy and happiness you must release yourself from all this inner turbulence and unrest.  Allow yourself to move through it, not build on it. 

Are Your Beliefs Creating Heartache and Unhappiness

Where there is darkness, there is now light.  Where there is hate, there is now LOVE.  

NOW is the time to let go.  Imagine for a moment how it will feel to be rid of all that locks you in a negative state of being ~ just imagine ~ you will finally be FREE.

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be ….
