I came across this list I wrote over a year ago, in 2011.
In This Way I Shall Live
Recognize power is not in money but in the perception and energy granted to the illusion of money.
Explore avenues and options, and discard thoughts that are built on foundations of hopelessness and failure.
Acknowledge the limitless of the universe within.
Welcome abundance into life.
Confront feelings of “being nice.” Discover what “being nice” has meant, what it has brought, and what it has cost. Replace “being nice” with “living authentically.”
Honor true feelings and opinions without judgment of self.
Release the need to be anything to anyone.
Understand and embrace inner potential.
Prioritize what is most vital, including health, clean environment, communication, fun, and gratitude.
Welcome order into life.
Partake in a health cleanse to detoxify the body, mind and spirit.
Continue cleanse day-by-day based on individual needs and desires, and not balanced against the outcomes of others.
Pay attention to what is put into the mouth, where food comes from, who provides the food and at what cost to society and the environment the food is made.
Welcome clean healthy food into life.
Be gentle with self.
Welcome accomplishment into life.
Release the need to contribute.
Pamper the self.
Give back to the giver.
Give by receiving thankfully and fully, without excuse or diminishment of the experience.
Allow others to love the beauty carried within.
Believe in the worth of the glorious embodied spirit of love that resides within.
Reach not for answers.
Relax in just being and knowing essentially all is enough.
Welcome nurturing into life.
Sacrifice for growth. To break through spiritual blockages make a sacrifice through spoken word, written word, or other form of creation.
Take a risk to honor the self.
Claim the right to be heard.
Speak for self and self alone, not dependent upon outcome or response.
Honor the self enough to give voice to passion and need.
Replace silence with truth.
Welcome growth into life.
Release anyone, everything, anything, any thought, any memory, any worry, and any entity taking energy from spirit.
Release and know that in releasing in return there is increased compassion and love.
Replace anger, resentment, regret, bitterness, and blame with increased empathy, patience, love, and forgiveness.
Forgive and then forgive again. Make forgiveness an every moment process. Awake and forgive. And awake and forgive again.
Welcome freedom into life.
Let loose the pattern of looking for infractions, wrongs, and imperfection.
Notice the limitless beauty in imperfection.
Know if this was to be the last day of breath, the day will have been spent in thankfulness.
