The Realization

The Realization

Lately I’ve been practicing asking myself a question:

What if this moment were already perfect, everything you needed to be happy?

This question is transformative.

If I’m upset about something, I reconsider the moment and realize that I’m being small-minded about something, and that if I look at the entire moment, I can appreciate how much I have to be grateful for.

Being mad at someone, I can see that actually this person is pretty wonderful and I should be grateful for having them in my life.

Being upset at a situation, I can see how much I actually have, how lucky I am, how great it is to be alive.

And even in non-frustrating moments, I can see how much of a gift this present moment is, and pause to really appreciate everything about it. And then make the most of it.

Is it possible this moment is the perfect blend you need for happiness?

  1. I’m totally on the page with Shannon for sure for quite some time but I also believe 100% with adam but it’s hard you know I mean heck it took me 33 years to feel this way I just hope it doesn’t take that long to be relieved from it.!!

  2. I have not been able to be myself for sometime now; I used to be willing, and I was a caring person easy to make smile, I could joke around and be fun.i don’t really know when it actually started .. that…moment when I became filled with grief, anger, confusion, jealousy,envy, then came anxiety and panic attacks which has lead to a paranoia and then flashbacks of my life moments everything I can I think of that I seen, heard, felt, smelled, and tastes from my past 30yrs started to feel overwhelming and sad very sad, I have a four year old son which I love and realized tonight is part of my reason and a boyfriend of 6yrs who has always been by my side to see the dark places I’ve gone who brought me back long enough to get a little grip on who I am. he is the only one person I know More than anyone in my life who has ever witnessed my monsterous episodes, the courage and strength he has is almost not human at all more like a angel so as write this Post I want whoever reads it and is in a bad place right now to keep hope and believe in time heals all things is true and when you have the moment just remember that it comes in the form of just the right time in such a magical mysterous way.
    I returned…

    • I kept reading your comment bc I relate COMPLETELY but then u said you’ve been with your man for six years, through awful tough times and u live for your 4 year old child… Then I got Goosebumps..I had been with who I still, 9 years later feel is my soulmate/best friend, and my daughter who IS 100%MY ENTIRE LIFE, when my Lil world came crashing down around me SOOO unexpectedly bc this man isn’t a pig like many, and discovered he was having an emotional affair with an unattractive Co worker.. Whom he’s married to this day.. Annd my daughter lives primarily there due to the demise of MYSELF AND MY SOUL or so I felt, afterwards.. I’m NOT telling u this to make u paranoid or scare u but to make the point that cliche as it sounds, being content with YOURSELF regardless the circumstances you’re in is CRUCIAL.. And I’ve wasted over 9years and trillions of tears just to learn to be comfortable with myself. Without relying on ANYONE (except my baby girl of course even tho it’s limited time until FINALLY now I just found a new place and she’s a teenager and wants to live w me again finally after yrs of a hole in my heart, being without her daily,) but my damn self..I struggle and feel like I’ve lost myself but I also see the emense growth in myself. I felt JUST like u at that time in my life, and still do except stronger. So just know that you’re still u, and that u don’t want to have to find out by losing everything that’s close to your heart. That’s what I did. Painful lesson. I Wish u luck Shannon!💓

  3. I’m desperate to learn too move on I am a victim of a crime it’s almost been two years and I am still struggling with health pain, P.T.S.S, I used to be welcome by many now I have no one I have come a long way but just need help trying to over come stressors and the saddnes anger all the emotions that seem *10. Anything that helps me to keep motivated and happy is greatly appreciated .

    • Janet,

      Make a vision board, practice waking up every morning being grateful for everything (good and bad)….I have PTSD and it is overwhelming at times…OK all of the time haha I have come to realize that if those bad moments never happened, I wouldn’t be as strong as I am today….I’ve been able to help others out of their ruts….I’ve been able to see through so many obstacles in life. The PTSD is a blessing in disguise. Feel free to reach out to me anytime. I’ll share my personal experiences with you for sure…I’ve been asked by my therapist (of all people haha) how I’m still sane…that’s how much I’ve been through. [email protected]

  4. Why worry about something you can’t change and why worry about something you can may you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live gratitude is just a word until action is put behind it peace out

  5. Late last night, I finally got down to what I have been meaning to do: focus on downsizing, donating unnecessary items that no longer serve a purpose to mean and cleaning/clearing space that is definitely long overdue of some attention.

    My lovely cell phone would not charge and I have the great luck of not remembering what USB cord works to power up with whatever connecting device I have upon hand to plug in. This actually went on for quite some time but I enjoyed focusing on doing a few necessary tasks needed to get ready for a Mother and Daughter who will be celebrating their 31st and 9th Birthdays come Sunrise.

    There has been a lot of chaos and uneasy transitions since the Solar Eclipse upon our Household. The last month has put an Amazing and Powerful yet still Painful Perspective that Must be Recognized, Respected and Addressed much sooner than later to all household members.

    While it may be hard for some to grasp the whole picture, self reflection, visualization and signs from the Universe, Spirit, My Amazing Angels and The Shimmering Stars & Magical Moon have Helped Me know what is Best for My Heart, Mind, Body and Soul ⭐😇💖

    Love & Light

  7. Being over the hill age wise and dealing with health issues, your thoughts and directions help greatly.

  8. We are where we think we are, we feel what we think we feel. That is, unless we make a conscious decision to make our minds a tool for change, in which case we consciously decide who we are and how we feel.
