When you live unhappy more so than happy, there may come a time when the only thing left to do will be to sit down, quiet your mind, and admit the truth for your own happiness. It does not matter what is creating your unhappiness, admitting the truth will set you free because it stops the internal fight and struggle. You are no longer fighting against what you already know. You are not running or hiding from it. Once the fight stops, the thing that is creating your unhappiness loses its power over you! You are now in control!
When you fight against the things you are doing or not doing that cause your unhappiness, you become out of tune with your Inner Life. And when this happens, life is not so joyful and happy. But once you have admitted your truth, which stops the fight, the solutions will automatically surface through your Inner Life. You will have the answers and the power to everything you want or need and you will be more in tune with your Inner Life again.
Admitting the truth may cause some emotional pain but there will also be relief. You will feel and be free. You do not have to change anything in your life in order to break free, you just have to admit the truth. You will then be free to move forward again and do what is needed and wanted to create your life the way you truly want it to be.
I have heard more often than not, that fear is the reason for not admitting and facing the truth. No one wants to admit a truth that may cause emotional pain. However, you are already hurting yourself by not breaking free from your unhappiness. There is nothing on the other side to fear. Yes, there may be some challenges along the way but as long as you stay true to yourself first, your life will unfold smoothly and easily.
Give yourself what you deserve. Love yourself enough to allow what life has to offer you. Do not be afraid. Breaking free from any negative element will only bring you happiness!!!
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……

How often do you use your past as an excuse to justify your present life situation or your behavior? Do you blame your drinking on your “old man” because he drank when you were a kid? Do you blame your trust issues on a past lover who cheated on you 10 years ago? Do you blame your dead-end job on your parents because they did not send you to college? If you are fully aware of where your excuses are coming from, you no longer have an excuse for making excuses! It is time to step up to the plate and take personal responsibility for what you are doing or not doing. No one is twisting your arm or holding a gun to your head. The only person making you and your life the way it is, is you. Yes, you heard me correctly! It’s all YOU! You are the one who has control, not the past, and not anyone from the past.
You make excuses because you are afraid to face the truth. You are afraid to look in the mirror and admit where and who you are is because of the choices YOU made, no one else. You make excuses to avoid the life that is right in front of you. Believe it or not, the truth will set you free. When you stop making excuses and starting taking personal responsibility, you will begin to feel empowered. You will start to feel a sense of freedom because all those excuses will no longer being holding you back. You will be able to move forward in every area of your life. Oddly enough, you will find there was nothing to fear.
Living with excuses is the same as resisting all that life has to offer. You are resisting what is and the present moment because you are too focused in the past. If you use the pain of a past relationship as an excuse not to trust someone, you will only be hurting yourself. You will find yourself avoiding relationships. Is that really what you want? We have all experienced some of the same things. What is important for you to know is that you always have a choice as to how you react to that experience. You can choose to accept it for what it was and move on or you can choose to use it as an excuse and remain stuck.
Take some time to think about your life, where you are, and why you make the choices you do and then ask yourself these questions: Are you taking personal responsibility or are you making excuses? How often do you find yourself making excuses? Are you blaming someone else for your current life situation? Are you living the life you want to live? Are you moving ahead or standing still? What are you going to do about it?
Nothing you have or do is because of anyone other than you! Once you come to the realization that YOU are in control of your life and there is no need for excuses, you will begin living a joyous and abundant life! So, what is the first step you are committed to taking right now?
Love & Light,
