So here we are, getting settled into March.
Warmer air is starting to blow, and though it will continue to snow here for the next three months, spring is definitely in the air. Excuse me while I wipe my tears.
Just as February was a time for releasing what is no longer helping us move forward, March is a time for committing to that which we did not leave behind. Spring is here, it’s a time for new beginnings.
This morning as I was pulling on my boarding clothes, I was thinking about my ‘to-do’ list that at times seems a mile high. Do I take a day off from the mountain to conquer these errands?
After floundering a bit, I came up with my answer: NO.
Why? Because life is short.
And though days to board seem abundant right now, when the end of April hits and my boarding days are over until next winter, I’ll wish I had boarded every second that I could. Especially since the way my life is set up right now, I have maximum time to ride. There are no excuses why I shouldn’t utilize that opportunity.
Whatever it is that you love, commit to it.
Whatever new thought patterns you want to replace with old stagnant beliefs, commit to it.
Commitment is the word this month. Commitment is rewarded, ambivalence is not.
This is true of everything we love in life.
When your life is over, will you wish you spent more time at the office, or more time fishing (or insert whatever activity you love here)? When your jig is up, will you wish you made more money, or spent more time with your loved ones?
When it’s all said and done, I believe our regrets will be for all of the love we withheld, both from ourselves and from others. When it’s over, I think we’ll regret not spending our days doing what we love with loved ones. What an illusion all of the suffering in life is, when you view it from this angle.
We are all beings who were created in love, made up of love, and we are all seeking love. When we are creatures who live to give and receive love, by all means friends, follow that love!
Jesus is love. Buddha is love. God is love. Gandhi, Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, etc., they are all about love! So when love is what it is all about anyway, just do what you love and let everything else fall into place. Love is the name of the game.
Do more of what you love and surround yourself with those you love who also love you. Make love your North Star.
Once you commit to this, it’s amazing how everything else falls away. Commitment is the key. Once you commit, the Universe conspires to create room in your life for you to do more and more of what you love. I know this is true, because it happened to me. And now that I’m here, there’s no going back. It’s only going to continue to get more rad from here.
From an Ayurvedic standpoint, when we spend time not doing what we love, it creates a resistance within us, that creates a blockage of energy. This leads us to feel depressed, less energetic, and unhappy. Overtime this resistance, if not released, will manifest disease, because we are, after all, at a dis-ease with ourselves and our life.
Energy flows where your attention grows. So if you want more time to do things you love, if you start to do whatever you can to focus your energy on what you love. It really is that simple. The key to succeeding with it is to commit to it.
Soon, before you know it, you will be doing the things you love all the time, with people that you love, and you will find that you absolutely love your life. You love your life!
But you cannot get there without first taking the first steps towards committing to doing more of what you love. Those errands, they will always be there. And you will find that without giving up what you love to do to go run errands, the errands always have a way of getting done.
It’s crazy how when we decide to pursue what brings us joy, everything else that is not in alignment with that melts away, if you choose to commit to it.
Also. Friends, do not feel guilty about doing what you love to do. Do not feel guilty about surrounding yourself only with loving and supportive people.
When you live a life doing what you love to do, this is where the magic happens. This magic will bring you more life fulfillment than you’ve ever known. If anyone tries to make you feel guilty for doing what you love with your life each day, it’s time to nicely walk away from this person.
Send a serious message to the Universe today, by committing to whatever you did not leave behind last month. There is no better time to take your life to the next level. March is a time to commit to your happiness.
Lots of love,
