Donde encontrar esa inspiración cuando sentimos que no la tenemos

Van haber días buenos y malos. Días en donde usted se va a sentir en la cima y días cuando usted se va a sentir sin ánimo.

Yo creo que cuando usted busca fuera de usted mismo esa inspiración, usted talvez se va a sentir desilucionado porque busca a alguien o algo (y cuando digo “algo”, me refiero a las cosas materiales) que le dé lo que cree que va a encontrar fuera de usted mismo. Es cuando usted para por un momento y tranquiliza la mente que puede encontrar esa paz que quizás necesita y esa inspiración para ayudarlo a seguir hacia adelante. La naturaleza también nos provee tanto para sentirnos inspirado. Para mí, el mirar el cielo, por alguna razón, me da tanta paz. Es mi fé en algo más grande, Dios en este caso, que me mantiene inspirada. Esa fé de que cosas buenas están por llegar a pesar del momento que estoy viviendo.

La inspiración, quizás uno lo encuentra fuera de uno mismo pero si usted quiere una inspiración duradera, usted va a notar que esa inspiración ya está dentro de usted. Usted ya es una fuente de inspiración para alguien y quizás usted ni sabe. Una cosa que quisiera añadir es que si usted depende en sentirse inspirado para hacer las cosas, usted quizás no va a vivir al máximo porque no todo el tiempo se va a sentir inspirado pero debería siempre de cobrar ánimo para vivir la vida al máximo no importa que la vida le pone en el camino.

¿Qué esto tiene que ver con el bienestar? El bienestar incluye diferentes aspectos de nuestra vida. Muchas veces esperamos estar inspirado para comenzar un proyecto que teníamos en mente. Esperamos estar inspirado para comenzar a perder peso o comer saludable. Esperamos estar inspirado para comenzar a vivir la vida. Con esto dicho, a pesar de los desafíos y los momentos bajos de la vida, a pesar de cualquier desilución que pueda sentir, ¡atrévese a vivir al máximo! ¡Atrévese a inspirarse a vivir una gran vida! ¡Inspírese a ser más hoy de lo que usted fue ayer! Créalo o no, esa inspiración siempre vive dentro de usted.

Reflecting…

Walking through Central Park made me reflect on all the riches that are within our reach that we either don’t realize that we have or we don’t know how to value.

A lot of people ask me “What makes you happy?”. My response is “Can you hear?, Can you see? Can you walk?, Do you have health?, Do you have your family? Well, if the response is ‘yes’ then you have everything to be happy”. A lot of times we let ourselves be distracted by the things that really don’t matter. We forget that by having the basics we already have everything. By having the basics, everything else will come. Having your health, being able to walk and see, you will have the strength to work and make the money that you need and have all the other stuff that you need. Love is so powerful and with the love of either your family or a loved one, you will have the strength to move on forward. Without a base, a house can not be built. In the same manner, without the basics you can not construct a future. And if it’s the case that you can’t either walk or see, it doesn’t matter because you still have blessings in your life. It’s a matter of taking a look at all the blessings that you have.

The next time that you get angry at something that in reality doesn’t have that much importance, remember all the beautiful things that you have for which you can be grateful for having. Reflecting on things that you have for which to be grateful for is essential for a healthy mind and soul. Next time you walk by something that causes an impression on you, think of all your blessings. It is my desire that this reflection helps take you to a level of consciousness necessary for your well-being so that you can start living life to the max the way you deserve to live.

Reflecionando…

Caminando por el Parque Central me hizo reflecionar en todas las riquezas que ya tenemos en nuestro alcance que nosotros o no nos damos cuenta o no lo sabemos valorar.

Muchas personas a mi me preguntan, “¿Qué es lo que te hace tan feliz?” Mi respuesta es “¿Puede oir? ¿Puede ver? ¿Puede caminar? ¿Tiene su salud? ¿Tiene a su família? Bueno, si la respuesta es “sí”, entonces tiene todo para ser feliz”. Muchas veces nos dejamos llevar por las cosas que realmente no tienen importancia. Nos olvidamos que al tener lo básico, lo tenemos todo. Teniendo lo básico, lo demás llega. Teniendo salud, podiendo caminar y ver, usted va a tener la fuerza para poder trabajar y así poder conseguir el dinero y las demás cosas que necesita. El amor es muy poderoso y con el amor ya sea de su família o de alguien querido le da fuerza  para seguir hacia adelante. Sin una base, una casa no se puede construir. Igualmente sin lo básico, usted no puede construir un futuro. Y si no puede oir o caminar o ver, no importa. Usted todavía tiene tantas bendiciones. Sólo basta ver cuales son.

La próxima vez que usted se enoje por algo que no tiene realmente tanta importancia, recuerde todas las cosas bellas que usted tiene por la cual puede estar agradecido. El reflecionar sobre las cosas que hay que valorar es esencial para una mente y alma sana. La próxima vez que esté caminando y ve algo que lo impresione, piense en todas sus bendiciones. Es mi deseo que esta refleción lo lleve a un nivel de conciencia necesaria para su bienestar para que usted pueda comenzar a vivir una vida al máximo como usted merece.

How To Deal With That Sense of Heaviness That You May Be Feeling Inside You

I think talking about how to be positive and how to eat right when it comes to well-being isn’t enough to cover the different aspects to our well-being. I think it is so important to talk about the aspects that can compromise our well-being and one of the many things that can compromise our well-being is that feeling of heaviness that we may feel. How do we get over that? How do we deal with that? How can we deal with moments when our mind is clouded, when we can’t seem to clear our mind? I will do my best in this post to offer some suggestions on how to deal with heaviness in our heart and mind.

First off, I would say that you are entitled, let me write this again, ENTITLED, yes in capital letters, to feel all range of emotions because you are only human. You are entitled to your off days, you are entitled to your down days, you are entitled. Life, I don’t think, is meant to be a smooth road, however, your perspective on things shapes how bumpy your ride will be. Although life can be complex, at the end of the day, your view on things can shape how complicated things can be. Know that there is nothing wrong with you feeling down and having off moments. It is only a part of life. Knowing that you are entitled to this will help you not feel bad about what you are feeling and it will help you to not put resistance on your emotions. I think that putting resistance on your emotions just makes matters within you worse. It makes it harder to get over what you are feeling, it makes it difficult for you to move on and you are stopping yourself from learning any lessons that you are meant to learn from what you are feeling and going through.

Now, I want to clarify that although you are entitled to your off and down days, don’t stay in that emotion. It is not healthy for you to remain in a down state for too long. Look at this as an injustice that you are doing to your body when you linger in emotions that can drain your energy. Every negative emotion is harmful on a long-term basis for your body. You don’t want to put that amount of stress on your body. Your body needs loving all the time and part of that love that you provide to your body is not lingering too long on negative emotions. Don’t deny those emotions, I’m not saying not to deny them. Feel those emotions, recognize them, embrace them, learn from them and do your best not to dwell on those emotions.

“How do I not dwell on those negative thoughts or emotions when they are so strong?” you might ask. Seriously analyze what it is that causes you to feel this heaviness. I am big on breaking things apart in my mind.  Breaking things apart in your mind will help you look at your situation with a different eye. Ask yourself the following questions: Is it worth it for you to feel this way? Can you try to “fix” the situation so it doesn’t cause you this much pain? What can you learn from this situation?. There are so many reasons that can cause one to feel heaviness that in this single post it is challenging to cover all that one can do to overcome this feeling. Because every situation is unique and different, your approach to the situation will be different. The kind of questions you ask will be different.

I would suggest journaling, which is writing down what you are feeling and thinking. There is something so powerful about writing down what you have in your mind because it is no longer in your mind. It helps you gain clarity into your thoughts and emotions. Having clarity and an understanding of why you are feeling what you are feeling will empower you because you will know more about yourself. The more you know about yourself, you will be able to make better choices for yourself. You will treat yourself differently because of the awareness that you have of who you are.

Don’t forget to do things that you enjoy. There is something so powerful for our well-being when we do things that brings joy to us. Having hobbies and doing things that you like helps distract you from things that can be going on that puts you down, helps build your self-esteem, and you learn more about yourself. That’s part of our journey in life, getting to know ourselves more.

Surround yourself by people who love and care about you. Knowing that you are loved and accepted for who you are is just so important to your emotional and mental well-being. It is these people who can help you overcome your difficult times.

Remember too that everything passes. This hard time that you are going through will pass. It is so important to remember this when going through tough times that these moments don’t last forever. This thought will help you look forward to beautiful times that are ahead.

Living with purpose and to the max may not always be easy but knowing that part of life is knowing how to deal with hard times is very important. It is these hard times that will help you appreciate all the beautiful times that are yet to come. Remember, you can’t know what true happiness is until you know what sadness and hardship is.

 

Where To Find Inspiration When You May Feel You Have None

There are good days and bad days. Days when you will feel on top of the world and days when you feel like blah. So with this said, where do you find inspiration when you feel like you have none?

I think that when you look for that inspiration outside of yourself, you may find that you may be a bit disappointed because you look onto someone or something (and with this I’m referring to material stuff)  to give you what you think you will find outside of you. It is when you stop for a minute and quiet your mind that you can find that peace that perhaps you need and that inspiration to keep moving forward. Nature also provides so much for us to feel inspired. For me, it’s looking up at the sky that for some reason, this provides a sense of peace for me. It is my faith in something higher, God in this case, that keeps me inspired. That faith that good things are coming despite the moment I may be living.

Inspiration, we may find it outside of us but if you want lasting inspiration, you will find that inspiration already lives within you. You already are a source of inspiration for someone and may not even know it. One thing I would like to add is that if you depend on feeling inspired in order to get things done, you may not live life to the fullest because you won’t always be inspired but yet you should encourage yourself always to live life to the fullest, regardless of what life throws at you.

What does this have to do with well-being? Well-being includes different aspects of our lives. Many times we wait to be inspired in order to start that project we had in mind. We wait to feel inspired in order to start losing weight or eat healthy. We wait to be inspired in order to start living life. With this said, despite the challenges of life, despite the downs you may have, despite any disappointment you may feel, dare to live life to the fullest! Dare to inspire yourself to a great life! Inspire yourself to be more today than you were yesterday! Believe it or not, that inspiration always lives inside of you.

Para su bienestar, no se coloque en situaciones en dónde usted va a salir herido

Muchas veces me he colocado en situaciones en dónde yo no creo que fue mi intención lastimarme pero lo hice. He llorado mucho innecesariamente, me he desilucionado muchas veces por causa de otras personas y todo esto a pesar de toda la evidencia en frente de mí de que tenía que salir de la situación en dónde yo me coloqué. Yo creo que muchos de nosotros podemos estar familiarizados con este sentir y sólo le puedo decir por experiencia propia que para su bienestar, no se coloque en situaciones en dónde usted va a salir herido.

¿Pero por qué nos colocamos en situaciones que nos hieren? ¿Cómo podemos evitar esto desde el principio? Para comenzar, nosotros como seres humanos tenemos necesidades. La necesidad de ser amado, la necesidad de atención, la necesidad de conexión, la necesidad de ser necesitado, la necesidad de ese sentir que uno tiene importancia. Es por estas necesidades básicas que uno muchas veces se encuentra en situaciones que si no hubiese sido por esas necesidades, uno no se hubiese colocado en esa situación para comenzar. Esta es la razón por la cual es muy importante el entenderse, pero que poderoso es el uno entenderse, y saber cuales son sus necesidades. Este simple entendimiento puede revelarle mucho sobre lo que tiene en el subconsciente y le puede revelar que lo detiene de tener la vida que quiere. Por lo tanto, comienze por entender lo que usted quiere y sus necesidades.

¡Ámese a sí mismo! Cuando usted se ama a sí mismo, usted no va a permitir que nadie lo lastime ni que lo trate menos de lo que usted merece. Usted ni se va a conformar con situaciones que usted no merece, por ejemplo, el involucrarse con alguien que no está disponible, entre otras cosas. Cuando usted se ama, usted entiende su valor como persona y como mujer/hombre y por ende, usted sólo va aceptar situaciones y personas digna de usted.

Cuando usted se encuentre en una situación en dónde usted ya puede ver que va por el camino del “dolor”, pare por un momento. Pregúntese ¿por qué usted se dirige hacia ese camino? Si usted necesita una perspectiva de alguien, pregúntele a alguien que lo quiere y de confianza qué ellos piensan sobre la situación. Usted se sorprenderá de ver cómo la perspectiva de otra persona le puede ayudar abrir los ojos. Investigue dentro de usted qué es lo que lo lleva hacia ese camino doloroso. Pregúntese, “si usted puede estar en cualquier situación o puede tener cualquier cosa en la vida, que sería?” Por ejemplo, si usted está buscando un amor verdadero y sólo atrae personas que no están disponibles, pregúntese qué es lo que realmente usted quiere. ¿Usted quiere realmente estar en una situación en dónde sabe que no va a llegar a dónde usted quiere? Si usted está tratando de ir a California, ¿usted no va a tomar un avión con destino a Montana, o sí? Entonces, pregúntese por qué usted está haciendo exactamente esto en otras situaciones en su vida. Esto lo ayudará a pensar más hacia dónde usted quiere ir con su vida y ayudará a sus antenas a funcionar bien para que usted esté en alerta para lo que usted realmente quiere y merece.

Estas son algunas de las muchas cosas que usted puede hacer para poder entenderse mejor, tener más de lo que usted quiere en la vida y tener lo que usted realmente merece. Usted MERECE más de la vida. Usted no se tiene que conformar con situaciones que son mas o menos buenas o situaciones que obviamente no son saludables.

For Your Well-being, Don’t Place Yourself In Situations Where You Will Be Hurt

Many times I have placed myself in situations where I don’t think I meant to hurt myself but I did. I had shed many tears unnecessarily, I have been disappointed by others many times and all this despite all the evidence staring at me in my face that I should get out of the situation in which I got myself in. I think most of us can familiarize with this feeling and situation and I can only tell you from personal experience that for your well-being, don’t place yourself in situations where you will be hurt!

But why do we place ourselves in hurtful situations? How can we avoid this to begin with? First off, as human beings we all have needs. Need to be loved, need for attention, need for connection, need to feel needed, need for that feeling of importance. Because of these basic needs we can find ourselves in situations that had it not been because of these needs, we would not have placed ourselves in those situations to begin with. This is the reason why it is so important to understand yourself, oh how powerful it is to understand yourself, and what your needs are. This simple understanding can uncover a lot of what we have in our subconscious and can reveal to us what holds us back from the life we truly long. So start by understanding what your needs and wants are.

Love yourself! Truly, when you love yourself, you won’t allow anyone to hurt you or treat you any less than you deserve. You won’t even settle for situations that you don’t deserve, i.e. get involved with someone who is unavailable, among other stuff. When you love yourself, you understand your worth as a person or woman/man and so you will only accept situations or people that are worthy of you.

When you find yourself already in a situation where you can see that you are heading towards the “hurt” road, stop for a second. Ask yourself why you are driving down that road. If you need outside feedback, ask someone you love and trust what they think about the situation. You will be surprised how much you can open your eyes with some outside perspective about the situation. Truly dig inside you to understand what leads you to drive down this hurtful road.

Ask yourself, “if you can be in any situation or have anything in life, what would it be?” For example, if what you are looking for is true love and all you keep attracting are unavailable men or women, really ask yourself what do you want. Do you really want to be in a situation where you know you won’t be heading where you want to go? If you are trying to go to California, I’m pretty sure you won’t catch a plane going to Montana, would you? So ask yourself why you are doing this same exact thing in other situations in your life. This will help you think more about where you want to be and will help get your antennas working properly to really be on the look out for what you truly want and deserve.

This is just some of the many things that you can do in order to understand yourself more, get more of what you want in life and get what you truly deserve. You DESERVE more out of life. You don’t have to be content with situations that are somewhat nice or just plain not healthy.
