My twin sistar and I have been checking in every morning via phone or skype for the last few weeks in a commitment to show up fully each day and express what we desire to create and contribute, in alignment with our intentions and goals for 2012 and beyond. It is an amazing practice and one that is absolutely holding me accountable and keeping me motivated on a daily basis!
In my life I created a story about what I believe success is.. that I will be successful when I am making a lot of money, working on major projects which are receiving recognition worldwide, owning my own home, in a committed and thriving intimate partnership etc etc.. This story of what I ‘think’ success should look like has created many limitations to my life, caused me much grief and has also been an excuse to be very hard on myself for what I perceive to be ‘not making it yet.’
I was feeling triggered the other night before I went to bed.. old stories running through my head.. Wondering when my life will change? When will it take on a whole new meaning? When will I be doing what I dream of doing and taking action on all of these ideas that I have.. living where I dream of living and in a loving amazing partnership?! I allowed the emotions to clear without getting too wrapped up in the old stories.. however I did have that old ‘defeated’ feeling coming up.
I shared this with my sistar the next morning when we had our daily check in call. She asked me.. ‘What can you do right now to connect to and feel the joy, connection and forward moving energy that you desire to feel when you see yourself as being successful?’ Then she offered.. ‘How about we celebrate the little successes that are in abundance in our lives right now?!’ When she said this my heart opened up… she reflected some of the successes that are alive and well in my experience presently, like.. being of service to the greater goodness of life and to those around me, transforming old patterns and developing new habits, which allow me to be more fully aligned with my truest nature, being a wonderful Mom to my teenage daughter, creating a livelihood working from home to support my family for over 5 years and give me the flexibility I need as a single mom.. and the list goes on and on.
And then I remembered.. life is what we make it.. and how we choose to perceive it is everything.. success is not some future goal to attain.. it is happening here and now.. I AM a Success RIGHT NOW!! And I will continue to be a success as my dreams continue to manifest in my reality.. YES!
I’d love to hear from you about how you view success.. and please share some of your little or big successes with me here 🙂 I am committed to remembering to CELEBRATE and be THANKFUL for the amazing life that I and blessed to live 🙂
Have a beautiful, empowered and magical day!!

“Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.” -James Allen
