Finding the Good Even When Things Get Bad

Finding the Good Even When Things Get Bad

Topics: , , , , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Learn to love yourself. Once you love you, it opens you up to all different types of experiences in this world. Whatever you focus on is what you get, so why not focus on the good and the positive?

Do your very best to live love and kindness and not in the Ego. When we live in our ego, life is complicated and distorted. If you want to experience everything fully, let go of your ego.

Forgiving is key. Without forgiveness, you will stay stagnant. Remember when you forgive someone, it is for you, not for them. You are not saying what they did or said was okay, you are saying: it’s done, I can’t change it, now I must let it go so it doesn’t imprison me in my thoughts of not forgiving.

Be in the NOW. Do your very best to be where you are and with who you are with at all times. Be present. To go along with that, let go of the past. The past is just that: THE PAST. Until you let go, you will not be able to live in the present. Don’t base any of your present experiences on the past.

Do what you are passionate about. Don’t just settle in life for any old job, find one you either love or one that you like while you are pursuing what you love.

Know that you deserve the best and don’t settle for anything less.

Be truthful and loyal.

Be very aware that you will never be perfect; no one and nothing is. If you keep striving for perfection, you will never be happy.

Don’t compete with others; do your best to be better than YOU were yesterday, not better than someone else.

Know that you can manifest almost anything you desire. Use the law of attraction every day. If you want something, put it out into the Universe. Be specific. The best way I know to do this is to make a bi-yearly vision board. A vision board, if looked at every day, can change your life. It goes back to whatever you focus on is what you get.

Your loved ones who passed on are still with you in spirit… you can still talk to them, reach out to them and love them. They know.

Live Fearlessly. Fear will hold you back from living the best life you could live, being the best you you could be, and everything else in life.

Pettiness doesn’t matter nor does being right.

Learn to compromise and show appreciation in your relationships and you’ll be amazed at how wonderful they become.

Respect others. Be willing to do some work for what you want in life. Believe me, the effort pays off.

Be happy with where, who and how you are right now, and you’ll see how more will flow in to make you even happier.

Every experience is a learning experience: do your best to find what it is trying to teach you. You may not be able to right away, but when you are ready, you will sometimes realize why it happened.


Who makes you happy?

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;

they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

My holiday greetings for YOU!

Happy Holidays and the Best New Year ever!

My suggestion to help you have the BEST any Year ever is to start your day with GRATITUDE; a quiet time (on or by the toilet if needed!); 2 – 10 Deep Belly Breaths; a Sense of Wonder (Nature, your Kids, your Job/Retirement, your ____); a well-developed, maybe crazy, sense of humor (mine is called “wicked” by friends!), and a Smile–no matter what comes at you in those first challenging moments/hours of wakefulness!!

Remember that you and EVERYONE you meet Every day is also a Child of God, just as you are. And, I believe that we do project outward whatever we are feeling inside of ourselves–OMG!     So, inwardly (or outwardly, if you dare!) bless that person who you find to be “difficult,” who triggers your buttons! Take a DEEP breath. Then, Smile & move on with your day!

I didn’t mean to sound so preachy! But, I do wish you all the best from my heart with JOY!

Blessings and love to you and your families.


PS. BTW, yes, I’m back after months of challenging health issues. I’m wishing you, and me (!), a healthy and/or healthier 2015!! “Bless us, Everyonel!” And, thanks for reading “LindaLouiseReiki.”

Treat everyone you meet…

Friday, Feb. 14
Treat everyone you meet as if he or she were going to be dead by midnight.
Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster,
and do so with no thought of reward.
Your life will never be the same.

Being in GRATITUDE is a choice

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment. It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.

Gratitude Practice + Spiritual Law

You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.
