So many of us strive for perfection. The bar can be raised quite high. Often, we are the ones setting the standards. It’s important to be reminded that it’s okay not to be perfect. While we’re at it, here are a few more reminders:
- You can start your day over at any time.
- The answers are within. Listen.
- Life is a series of choices. The “wrong” ones become lessons.
- If you don’t learn from lessons, you will get another chance.
- Give yourself a break.
- You are loved.
- You are worthy.
- You are beautiful.
- You matter.
- There is so much to be grateful for in your life.
- At this moment, all is well.
- You are making a difference in the world.
- Thoughts become things. Focus on the good ones.
- Limit time with friends who are energy vampires
- Speak your truth.
- You are perfectly imperfect.
Your glass is half full.
Believe in yourself.
Focus on the good.
You’ve gotten this far, right? Keep going!
What is calling you?
Take a deeper listen to the spiritual being within and turn it into a human experience to remember.
Any fear or doubt only adds another push towards your greatness.
Any obstacles can be turned into stepping stones.
Rise above! Get in touch with your purpose.
The path is there. Just let go and it will become clearer.

Rule One – You will receive a body.
You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of your life on Earth.
Rule Two – You will be presented with lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called “life”. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but you have designed them as part of your curriculum.
Rule Three – There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of experimentation, a series of trials, errors and occasional victories. The failed experiments are as much as a part of the process as the experiments that work.
Rule Four – The lesson is repeated until learned.
Lessons will be repeated to you in various forms until you have learned them. When you have learned them, you can go on to the next lesson.
Rule Five – Learning does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.
Rule Six – “There” is no better than “here”.
When your “there” has become “here” you will simply obtain another “there” that will look better to you than your present “here”.
Rule Seven – Others are only mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.
Rule Eight – What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you.
Rule Nine – Your answers lie inside of you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
Rule Ten – You will forget all this at birth.
You can remember it if you want by unraveling the double helic of inner-knowing.
