Thought for the Day – By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Always do your best…….let your authentic light shine through.  Deep inside each one of us is a ray of light that can show us the way to our authenticity.  Let today be the day that you develop a plan to clear your mind of the clutter, congestion, and conflict that sometimes clogs your ability to be productive, essential, and full of purpose.  Those wounds that you tell yourself lie dormant, and yet they seem to be sub-consciously making all of your decisions.  It is vital to our mental health that we clear all the grudges, burdens and grief; that we heal the wounds that have written our story.  Love will survive the purge…..pain will not.

Pain will tell you that silence is the way to proceed and when you do that you allow fear to stand between you and those you love.  When you refuse to share what you are feeling and how the other person has contributed to those feelings , you are withholding your love. When you don’t provide valuable information to people that would help to make the relationship better, you are withholding your love.  Whenever you withhold the truth of your experience to those who share the experience, you are withholding love.  When your light shines for all to see, when there is no conversation that you can’t have, when you make your life decisions and not your pain bodies…..that is personal freedom, that is the power of your authenticity.

Stephen R. Covey said “Our character is basically a composite of our habits.  Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character. No wonder many feel anxious and fearful, and live to pretend, to impress.  Their lives are buffeted by outside changing forces rather than being anchored by the changeless intrinsic value within.  The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about, and what you value.”
