Find Time to Recharge Your Batteries Using Validation and Celebration (While Saying No to Rumination)

Finding time to validate accomplishments and celebrate successes is a surefire way to give your energy a boost!

Our energies are affected by every choice that we make … and the quality of our energy, in turn affects our choices.  If you picture it as a spiral, you can easily see that the movement can be either widening and expansive … or it can be narrowing.  What a huge difference this can make!

That’s why I’m pausing today to say …WOW!

On June 24, 2008 we sent our first post on The Time Finder lovingly into cyberspace!  That first month we had 41 visitors to the blog … maybe you were one of them!  Since then the numbers have climbed dramatically, with upwards of 13,000 visitors so far this year … and counting!  This expansiveness is something that we consciously value and work to embrace every day … and it’s wonderful to have it validated concretely by the numbers.

We are also coming up on the one-year anniversary of a Finding Time disaster … when our web-host went out of business unexpectedly and we lost our site, our mailing lists, our shopping cart … everything!  While those events were extremely disruptive and regrettable, we celebrate and validate our response and our choice to deal with the situation and keep moving ahead!

A different choice might have been to angrily hold onto the upheaval and negativity that last July’s disaster also represented.  Rather than coping and moving, we might have chosen to ruminate.

That is a choice that sets the spiral of your energy spinning on a narrowing course.  It limits your choices, chokes your creativity, and affects your perspective on EVERYTHING. You can rest assured that many opportunities will go unnoticed when your vision and energies are constricted in this way.

The lesson here? No matter what happens to you in your life, you will ALWAYS have a choice about how you respond to it.  Choosing to celebrate and validate … rather than ruminate … will ALWAYS expand your horizons and give your energy a boost.  It really is that simple!

And speaking of giving your energy a boost … are you ready to explore your healthiest life?  Ready to consider some changes?
