Welcome to Living Aspirations!
The channel of meaningful conversation. A place to share information that actually matters—not just individually, but ultimately for the purpose of the greater good. Why? Because for one, the world is in desperate need of peace and repair, and second, we’re responsible for our own happiness! So why on earth would we want to waste another second of our precious time?! It all comes down to the choices we make. Of course making choices from a cloudy, polluted and overstuffed mind can very well lead you down a path you most certainly would prefer not to be on (if you knew better), but how would you know the difference when there’s so much going on—life is so busy, so many distractions, so many thoughts!
I see life like mining for diamonds, once you move past all the rubble (nonsense) you refine to a place within yourself of absolute beauty and perfection, where you shine brighter than any diamond, you finally become the star you were born to be.
Let’s stop with the excuses, the drama, limiting belief systems, and get on our way to lighting up our lives…we are bound for successful happiness:)
8 Ingredients to Living YOUR Aspirations:
1. Take inventory of your thoughts and beliefs – Make a list of what you truly value in yourself, in others, and in life. What bad habits or dense beliefs are you carrying and have they been really serving you well? Where are you stuck most? What’s weighing you down? Take a real honest look at yourself, see if your values line up with absolute integrity, and further, is that being reflected in your current life, or the life you aspire to have? Do you even know what you really want from life?! What are your BIG dreams?
2. What are you grateful for? If you were cleaning out your closet/house/storage, what kind of things would you keep and which would you toss? Again, refine what is intrinsically important in your life, perhaps you’ve been neglecting to appreciate something right under your nose, and continuously obsessing over what you don’t have! Embracing the simple things will expand appreciation for greater possibilities. Essentially, we only want to keep things we can work with and grow with—remove the clutter so that you can create room for the new opportunities you want to bring in…but remember YOU are ultimately the one who needs to initiate change, no one can do it for you.

“Got milk?!”One of my boys has dairy sensitivities, but beyond that we’re just not big dairy drinkers.

In the eye of all storms is StillnessYou should sit in mediation for twenty minutes every day–unless you’re too busy, then you should sit for an hour.” Old Zen adage Perhaps the most important muscle to flex is the ability to sit with our fear, stress, worry, anxiety…and all of its friends!
