My 30 Day Challenge: Day 30

Well I made it! 30 WHOLE days of doing one blog a day. I still plan on keeping up with my blogging and this was defiantly a challenge to make sure I did one a day and not miss one. I waited until the end of the day today because I wanted to experience my full day today before I finished with a blog post. One of the big lessons I learnt today was that you can't rush it, even if you really want to. I was on my way home from down town to Coquitlam today and I thought if I just ran and made up time I could still catch my bus on the other end. The bus was leaving at 8:20pm and I was due to arrive at 8:18pm. Well the bus ended up leaving a few minutes early so despite my 15 minute run for my life to a skytrain station down town and then changing to take the faster skytrain route I still missed my bus. The next one didn't leave until 9:20pm, a full hour later. I was less then impressed with the uni-vers about this but I used my quick thinking. I ended up taking 3 buses from where I was to get home but ended up getting home by 9:20pm, when the other bus was due to leave my original bus stop. The moral I take from this story is despite all of my running I still missed my bus but I found another way. The other way might have taken a bit longer and a few more transfers but it didn't cost anything extra and I still got home roughly 20 minutes earlier that had I waited for the other bus. It goes the same in life. You may want something SO bad and you run to catch it but sometimes you just need a little bit more time, there is always another way if you open your eyes and look around. So from now on I will do no more running for transit because I know that even if I miss my first choice there are still more options to be had.

I hope you all have enjoyed reading my 30 day challenge and ask that you please share it around to all of your friends. We can all use a little bit more positiveness in our lives. Everything happens for a reason so just trust in the fact that it will all work out in the end the way it's suppose to.

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "I love myself, I love my life, I am amazing!"

My 30 Day Challenge: Day 29

Wow! I can't believe tomorrow is going to be my last day for my 30 day challenge! Well today I want to shed some light on our goals. Every goal or dream is obtainable. The only reason you wouldn't achieve your dream is because you let all the obstacles get in your way. It's best to just put your blinders on and believe that you can do it. You may have a lot of people tell you that you can't do it but if you really want it you can have it! When I was planning to move to Europe I had a very negative person in my life say to me very sarcastically "Yea, good luck with that." They thought I wouldn't be able to save enough and that I wouldn't have enough strength to follow through. Only four months later I was on a plane with $5000 in my pocket and ready for the adventure of a life time. Had I listened to that person I would have gotten down on myself and I wouldn't have worked so hard and probably wouldn't have been able to save enough money but thank goodness that's not what happened. We have so many choices in life, I hope you always choose the best one for you and that it is always a positive one. Life really is what you make of it.

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "I have the power to make my dreams come true."

My 30 Day Challenge: Day 28

I want to talk about love today. I feel like we are all taught from a young age in North America that showing "love" or living with an open heart is a sign of weakness. I think this is absolutely wrong and people who can love with an open heart and put their emotions out there live happier and more fulfilling lives then those who close themselves off. What's so wrong about showing your emotion? Nothing, that's what. It shows that you are a well developed being who isn't scared about what other people are going to think about you. You live life with passion and enjoy it to the fullest. When you cut yourself off from your emotions you cut yourself off from really living a full life. Life is meant to be enjoyed on all levels and in every moment so don't hold back, don't cut yourself short. I use to live a very cut off life and thought that "not crying" made me a strong person. In recent years I discovered that showing my emotion actually made me a stronger person and helped me live a more authentic and genuine life because I listened to my feelings and lived by them. Your feelings are there for a reason and it to help you live your best life, so start listening to them! 

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "Loving with an open heart makes me a stronger person."

My 30 Day Challenge: Day 27

I want to bring it back down to the basics today and remind everyone that when you think about life, it's pretty simple. Life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest in all aspects. You should laugh too much, sing too loud, dance too hard, love openly and enjoy every darn second of it. We're so worried a lot of the time about what "other people" are going to think, but what do YOU think? I think if it makes you feel good and it's not hurting anyone else then you should go for it. If you love to dance and you go out to dance for the night and no one is on the floor but it's a REALLY good song you should get your tush on that floor and bust a move! Who cares if people are watching you and judging, let them be judgy judgersons and not enjoy themselves while you have the time of your life on that floor. I'm also very sure that soon after you start the trend, others will follow and join you on the dace floor. You just have to have the gumption to stand out in a crowd and do it. If you can laugh at yourself and have a ball then isn't that what you should do? What will worrying about what other people think accomplish? Nothing, that's what. So stand tall from now on and enjoy your life, that's what it's their for! I hope that at the end of it all of you will be able to look back and say "Damn, I had SOO much fun in my life!" Really that's all we're looking for isn't it, to have an amazing life. Well the secret is out of the bag now cause you can start having that amazing life right now, just make the decision to have it and do the things you want to do. It's at least worth the shot right?

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "I live every moment of my life with Joy and Happiness." 

My 30 Day Challenge: Day 26

I want to remind everyone about when I was talking about letting people make their own mistakes. It's not up to you to live other peoples lives for them, they have to learn and go on their own journeys. If you were to do everything for everyone no one would ever learn the lessons of life they need to in order to become more well rounded beings. Life is suppose to be full of mistakes because how else are you suppose to learn things? All you can do is live your own life and give support to those who ask it of you, not when you think you should but when it is asked for.

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "My life is full of happiness and joy."

My 30 Day Challenge: Day 25

Patience is a virtue my friends. It's time to remind you to not force things. This is a lesson I recently re-learnt myself. I was trying to make my life happen in a certain area and it just wasn't bringing me joy anymore so I took a step back to re-analyze the situation. What I saw was that I needed to practice my patience and get back to what made me happy. I'm now back on the path of being happy and haven't lost anything. Everything is happening at the right moment and in the perfect way. You should enjoy life and a lot of that can come from patients. Slow down, take a breath, calm your self and then look around, things don't have to move at a million miles an hour for things to get done or to happen. A lot of the time we work on something so hard and want it to happen that we actually miss the solution that is right in front of us. When you take a moment and walk away and distract your mind with something else it gives you time to look at things with a new perspective. All of a sudden you might get that answer you've been looking for because you let go of needed to have it in that moment and allowed it to come to you in its own perfect time. I also want to remind you that when dealing with other people you may want to show them the way or "you know better" but sometimes it's best to practice your patience and allow that person to figure it out on their own. Yes you may have been able to just tell them the answer but for that person it might be much more rewarding for them to figure it out them self. Sometimes we all just want to do it our self so remember that it applies to everyone else around you as well. There is all the time in the world for you, a whole life as a matter of fact, so relax, lay back and allow those amazing things to come to you in their own divine time.

Positive Affirmation of the Day: "My dream chases me, I do not chase my dream."

My 30 Day Challenge: Day 24

Get over your fear of being "wrong." We are too often afraid to make mistakes or take chances for fear of looking foolish but is the reward not worth it? I use to be very much in my shell about a lot of things, afraid to stick out of the crowed and get myself noticed but I now say throw caution to the wind. Yes you may look like a fool if you do something that doesn't work out but own that, stand up and say "well at least I had the guts to take the chance." Most people are too scared to take that chance and often end up being sad because they never too the shot. You should take 100% of the shots because the worse that could happen is that it doesn't work, but at least you tried! The more you try the more chances you have to succeed, so take every last one you get. The options are endless as long as you have a "can do" attitude and are willing to look a little bit funny sometimes. It's also very healthy to be able to laugh at yourself if you do make a mistake because then no one can turn around and use it against you because you have taken that possibly negative situation and made it a positive one. There is no being wrong, you simply haven't found the right answer yet, but at least your are making the effort to find it.
