Living with Intent and Direction

I'm sure most of you have heard the story of the boy at the shore, picking up sand dollars, one at a time, and throwing them back into the ocean. As he is dutifully finding the sand dollars on the beach, a passing adult stops to talk with him. The adults asks him why he is doing it, what difference it will make, the boy answers as he throws another sand dollar, "It made a difference to that one."

Many times we are so overwhelmed by the "big picture" that we lose sight of the present moment. We often consume our time with what we should have done, or what we should be doing. We are so busy worrying about the myriad of possibilities that we forget there is a possibility to take that first small step in making a difference on the the local, personal level. worrying about the past or the future, we don't have time for the now. But right now is all that matters.

Think about it. Right now is yesterday's future and it is also tomorrow's past. Right now, in this present moment, you are in both the future and in the past. If you truly want to affect the past AND the future, you have the opportunity to do in NOW. What are you doing about it?

If you are living your life like you always have, then that is the past and the future that you are creating by your actions. You have it in your power to change it by taking action NOW. That is what the law of attraction is all about. If you are living today based on past behaviors and expectations, then that is what you will continue to find in your life. If you live today based on what you want tomorrow to be, then that is what you will be creating.

Is it easy? Some would say yes and others would say no. Those who are bound by a self image of victim have to let go of being a victim. This includes those who blame their circumstances on others. As long as it is the fault of everyone or everything else, I have no control. I am a helpless victim. I can make excuses for having no control.

We have no control over others, but we have control over how we personally act and react. We each have choices to make on a daily basis as to how we will live our life and relate to others. Take responsibility for who you are and how you are being. Decide that you are going to make a difference to yourself and begin to make changes.

If you are making major changes expect some resistance both from your self and others. Our mind fights against new patterns of thought and behavior, and our family and friends may react negatively or subversively when we begin to make changes that affect them. YOU can make a difference for that sand dollar, especially if that sand dollar is YOU.



You'll love the changes you begin to experience.
