Good Morning Guru

A Different Type of Friday Digs

As I shared in this week’s Monday Mantra, one of the lessons I’m committing to this year is telling my truth. To myself, to those around me—and to you.

Though I’ve always been open on this blog, this year my intention is to be as authentically me as I can be and that means sharing all—despite being afraid of what you might think about me when I share. I’ve found, the more we let out of the dark of our minds and into the light of real life, the less we’re controlled by the fear of that darkness and the more ourselves we can be.

And so here it goes, my first big truth of the year.

Monday Mantra: The Lessons I am Committing to in 2019

It’s the first Monday Mantra of the year (yay!) and I’m extra excited to share this post with you. This year, instead of making resolutions, I am committing to a set of lessons that I plan on digging into this year.

Monday Mantra: Drop the Defense

When I’m feeling stressed or out of control my guard goes up and I plan for battle.

Suddenly everyone is out to challenge my sense of security. I question my relationships, my work, and hyper-examine the actions of everyone around me because I’m convinced that they—in some way or another—are out to get me.

Paranoid? Dramatic? Totally. That’s what giving into the ego does to us.

Monday Mantra: Abundance Debunk

If you’re thankful, you’ll have more abundance in your life. Or so they say.

On this week of giving thanks, I want us to reflect on the notion above and see if we can give ourselves a little more context around what that really means.
