I love the Olympics! The DEDICATION of the athletes, the desire to be the best they can be and the sheer LOVE of their respective sports is so inspiring to me.
My Olympic event is SPIRITUALITY, because our Spiritual Life feeds every area of our life. There is a saying, “We are spiritual beings having a human experience”. Well, I prefer to think of myself as a SPIRITUAL being having a SPIRITUAL experience in my life.
It is the QUALITY of your life that brings value to that life. That is why 2 individuals can find themselves in the same circumstance and yet, have 2 completely different experiences. Place value, not on the outer situation, but on the spiritual qualities that you intend to experience in that situation.
Since becoming a mother my Spiritual Practice has become Non-Negotiable. In order to become the mother my son needs me to be, my Spirit needs to be fully awake, alive, ignited and enlivened.
There are a few easy steps that you can PRACTICE each day to insure yourself a rich life, an excellent life, a life of the highest quality, an “olympic” life!
- PRACTICE … Any olympic athlete can tell you that they practice every day. Some days they feel like practicing and some days they don’t, but their practice is NON NEGOTIABLE. Make your spiritual practice non negotiable. If you are having challenge “quieting your mind” for meditation, seek assistance, play beautiful music or anything that assists you to “open your heart” … which brings me to
- INSPIRATION… Each day, connect with something that inspires you.. pick flowers for your home, office or altar, read something inspiring, listen to uplifting music, keep your conversations “high”, keep a spiritual journal and write 10 things you are grateful for each day, spend time in nature, dance, clean out a closet, be of service to a friend… which brings me to
- SELF CARE… We hear on all flights to put on our own oxygen mask before assisting others. Why wait for an emergency to practice this? When you take of yourself FIRST, you are able to be there for your children and others in your life, and for the things that your life is asking from you. Taking care of yourself FIRST is not selfish, it is a selfless act that allows you to be present for your children and those you are caring for in your life.
Be in excellent spiritual “shape” and you will have the strength to gracefully handle every situation handed you, especially those with your children.
