4- A Few Ways I Have Managed to Live More Truthfully

Part of the reason I started this blog is because the more I aligned myself with what is truly best for me, the more life made sense, and beautiful things kept happening. I wanted to capture that process of evolution.

In that light, I decided to remind myself of some of the steps I have already made that bring me closer to my Truth.

  • Every day, I trust in the process of life. I trust myself to make the right decisions, and I trust that when I make decisions that come from the heart, things will work out. In times of stress, this is huge.
  • I decided that I wasn’t going to settle anymore in relationships for less than I want. I used to think that what I wanted couldn’t exist, or that I wasn’t good enough to attract that kind of man. I no longer think that way, and I am coming to terms with the fact that I may be alone for a long, long time.
  • I decided to align myself more with people that are loving, and to engage in friendships that nourish my soul and expand my mind and consciousness. When I am with these people, they bring out the best in me, and I give love more freely.
  • I made a conscious choice to make creative movement a vital part of my life again. That includes dance, yoga and any other movement art I decide to try.
  • I stopped intense exercise long enough to get out of the mind set of “should.” ‘I SHOULD run today. I SHOULD not sleep in. I SHOULD not have eaten that cake last night’…blah, blah, blah. I want to have a beautiful body as a by-product of activities I am driven to do because they make my heart sing. A beautiful body wrecked by guilt lacks luster and ages faster. I am slowly starting on increasing activity, but only when I truly feel like it.
  • I am slowly cultivating a home yoga practice that lends me peace of mind and slows down my world for a full hour.
  • I have made a conscious decision to include my daughter in as much as possible. For the most part, if she can’t come along, then I just don’t do it. Yoga is an exception, and she isn’t into that yet.

Tell me what you have done to live more in your heart. I would love to hear!
