AlienHave you ever felt like you don’t fit in?

Or that you don’t matter?

Believe me, I’ve had days like those!

Here is a audio practice that may help you remember that you’re actually not alone

 

The Universe has your back.  Every energy that is the consciousness on the planet is here to support you.

You, my friend, are more important than you have ever been willing to even imagine.

What if you are exactly the difference this world requires?

What if you were willing to know that? Right now?

-Dain

Dan Gilbert gives a TedTalk on the phenomenon of how we change throughout our lifetime and how we tend to underestimate the amount of change we will make in the future. He calls for the “end of history illusion,” where we somehow imagine that the person we are right now is the person we’ll be for the rest of time.

Hint: that’s not the case!

“Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they’re finished.. The person you are right now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people you’ve ever been. The one constant in our life is change.

What would it be like to acknowledge that we create our future selves with every choice we make?

Got Happiness?

This 17 year old with Progeria, a rare, rapid aging disease is proof that happiness is just a choice!

No matter what I choose to become I believe that I can change the world. And as I’m striving to change the world, I will be happy. -Sam Berns

Here are his 3 steps to being happy!

# 1. Be ok with what you can’t do because there is so much you CAN do. Most of Sam’s time is spent focusing on the activities he can do that bring him joy, not the limitations that his disease poses.

# 2. Surround yourself with people you want to be around.

# 3. Go forwards – don’t look backwards! Being brave isn’t supposed to be easy. But you can keep moving forwards!

And a bonus #4 — Never miss a party if you can help it!

Would you be willing to change the world by being happy, too?
