insight for today

During meditation, I received some guidance that I wanted to share, and I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. Focus on joy and success rather than fear and stress.
Yes, I can already hear some people telling me that this is easier said than done. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Ask yourself these two questions:
How can I bring more joy into my life? How would my life change if I focused on joy and success for just five minutes each day?
If you don’t feel able to do this right now, that’s okay. Alternatively, you may want to start by asking yourself what is keeping you from allowing more joy and greater success into your life. Remember that you always have a choice when it comes to how you want to experience life. You owe it to yourself to choose a life of joy and success. Yes, it is truthat you may have days when nothing seems to go your way, but you can still choose your reaction to those experiences.

why life’s twists and turns are worth it

When I was younger, I felt the need to plan every aspect of my life. I planned to go to college to become a social worker. I also planned to get straight A’s in college, but that didn’t quite happen, either.
However, what actually happened was much more exciting! After struggling through college for seven years, I learned to cope with stress and manage my time. I was also challenged to start accepting myself, write a killer essay, and manage negative emotions.
Also, I met some amazing people and got the chance to mentor other blind students on campus. I laughed, I cried, and I struggled my way to my degree. Oh, and I was also doubting my decision to be a social worker.
After graduation, my doubts continued to grow. I knew that I wanted to explore spiritual work as a psychic or a coach, but I didn’t even know where to begin. Could I run my own business? Should I find a mentor, and how would I explain my career decision?
I tried to put off my ambitious business plans until I received my masters degree. However, something happened while I was filling out my grad school applications. While I can usually write an essay without difficulties, I felt completely blocked! Now, I know that I was not being true to myself. Several months later, I received a rejection letter from my first-choice school, but I ignored that sign. I began to apply for jobs, and I was rejected by every single agency. Yikes! The universe was working overtime to get my attention. Meanwhile, I was still receiving messages from spirits, but I was determined that I would only work as a psychic because I didn’t think that I could ever be “good enough” or “enlightened enough” to work as a medium.
I was encouraged and inspired to start a business by my current coach and mentor, so that’s what I did. Yes, there have definitely been some bumps along the way, and there were definitely times when I felt so frustrated that I was ready to give up. However, the journey was definitely worth it, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
