*I encourage you to look at this as a lifelong process and enjoy each and every day, each moment, experience, encounter, relationship, meeting, trip to the grocery store, meal, workout, walk, etc.
*I ask you to think kind, loving, positive thoughts of gratitude and appreciation for all that you experience.
*I tell you that worrying, being stressed, anxiety, etc, all our signs for you to look inside yourself and seek creative actions to conquer these challenging feelings that have the ability to overwhelm us.
*I want you to understand that you have a past and moving forward will overcome these feelings and in the process strengthen yourself.
*I want you to be aware that you are learning to be more compassionate towards all of life and to become more aware of the things that cause these feelings.
*Life truly is a blessing and the fact that you are here now shows just how courageous, aware, and motivated you are to learn, hear, see what is out there to better/strengthen yourself.
*Please keep in mind that on this journey of life it is necessary to take small steps, one step at a time and make sure you are on solid ground before continuing forward. This will more than likely ensure that you keep the progress going in the right direction, forward towards your goals. As the old saying goes life is truly a marathon and not a sprint so pace yourself and do not forget to stop and smell the roses.
*An essential aspect to being successful during this process is maintaining and in many cases gaining perspective on your current status and what it is going to take to make and implement the change(s) you desire.
