Reality. It often contains dirty, damp and dark corners. As a homemaker and household occupant, reality as we know it can contain untidy cupboards, copious piles of laundry, sticky piles of crumbs on benchtops and children that just don't want to do their chores.
Facing up to what is really present, really going on for you and your household and therefore what is part and parcel of your real life day to day situation, is the first step to taking back what control you can have over both your current reality and also your future destiny.
Your destiny in life is not going to be in your own hands if you choose to live life ignoring what is obviously present and going on for you right now. Your destiny in life is dependent on determining and working on that which you CAN have control over now. Right now. Today.
Yesterday is a day you have to let go of and release freely into the archives of the universe in order to keep destiny in your own hands. Your destiny can only be in your hands when you live in the present with your mindset fixed openly on the glorious future and not the damp, dark and disorderly past.
Better decisions, decisions that are great and powerful in their outcome, those decisions that shape and make one's destiny fruitful, positive and abundantly constructive are sown by seeds planted in the present and not in the past. An extraordinary destiny is set in place the day you decide to think upon and act upon that which you do have control over, within the framework of the hours you are given in the very current and present day. An extraordinary destiny actually begins today. TODAY, not tomorrow, not back in yesterday and in the archives of the past. An extraordinary destiny begins TODAY.
A messing workspace sucks. It reflects back to you negative, old energy from a time long past, time contained in yesterday and not today. A messy workspace literally sucks time, energy and often finances away from you in a very unbeneficial manner. Today is the day to take control back and to bring order back, even on your currently messy workdesk or benchtop. To do so is to change for good the current, reworkable storyline and therefore the destiny ahead of you.
Our decisions determine our destiny. What you eat today literally affects your bones and your waistline, which undoubtedly affects your quality of health and potentially your longevity. We cannot ignore the relationship between the decisions made today and the outcomes obtained tomorrow.
Natural Law exists and it does kick in, no matter how hard we may try to kid ourselves and live in a fantasy land of rainbows and unicorns, instead of the land of home and work with very real dust bunnies, dirty benchtops and deadlines that we somehow habitually seem to keep missing.
What you focus on daily determines your daily decisions. What daily decisions you make determine your overall destiny. While there is so much in this life that we each have no control over, there are a good measure of things that we do have control over, and a good measure of those things occur within the very confines of the family home and in the often mundane routines and practices of daily life.
Do you make your bed every day? It is a serious but somewhat bizarre question to ask, but here it is again: Do you make your bed every day?
Do you honour yourself by making your bed and therefore providing yourself with a pleasant place to rest and retire to again at the end of the day?
The decision to make your bed, to use clean and tidy bedding for that place that you go to literally rest and allow your physical body to recalibrate in via daily routine sleep, speaks a lot about how you value yourself and therefore how you feel about yourself. Regardless of past circumstances, you DO deserve this very day to have a pleasant experience when you retire to lie down on your bed again at the close of this day.
The state of your bed, the standard of kindness and care you show towards yourself in both how you speak and treat yourself, can reflect where your destiny can head. The state of your bed reflects your values and the standards you show towards yourself. The decision to make your bed is a simple one, yet it can and does often speak volumes about where your values, standards and decision making processes all lie on a daily basis.
Make the best and greatest decision you can today, to show respect towards yourself, to exhibit a higher level of standards being set than before, and do so by doing such a simply yet effective thing as making your bed. Do it. Make that bed and make it a symbol of today being the day you place your destiny back in the correct and right hands.
When we raise the bar on our values and standards, we are choosing to adjust our decisions. It is our standards, our values that are the underlying foundations for each and every one of our decisions. We have control over our decisions, both big and small, regardless of the decisions others around us make.
Our decisions are our decisions. Our thoughts, our standards, our values, and therefore our decisions, they are all so powerfully interlinked and they aid and equip all that is part and parcel of determining the destiny ahead for each of us.
It can be incredibly challenging to push through when it seems like there are so many external forces endeavouring to be destiny blockers. We experience and often hear others around us claiming more power and more control and we can unwittingly by into the false belief that that is in fact true.
How do we push back or push through these seemingly concrete walls that want to keep us locked in and locked up, instead reaching beyond and out the positive and better destiny desired?
Faith. Nothing but faith can keep reality real and in your face, yet allow constructive seeds for your future better destiny to be still planted this very day.
Faith is choosing to look in the very real face of fear, no matter how big and ugly it feels right now, and still keep putting in place each one of those daily decisions to build, right now, your hoped for and envisaged life destiny ahead in tomorrow.
Reality. It often contains dirty, damp and dark corners, yet today this very day we can, with complete and utter control being in our hands, choose to take one or two steps towards whipping out that cleaning cloth and opening that window shade to let sunshine in, no matter what literal or figurative form they may take.
Your destiny in life................ it IS more in your own hands that you perhaps have yet to fully realise. Make the conscious decision to see and set firmly in place it's presence, within your own hands, TODAY.
