|Obeying Puppy Dog|
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh
Do you notice that when you make a decision to do things differently, like taking action in following your intuition, there is this negative friction that starts trying to pull you back in to your old patterns of habit? Well it's happening to me right now. I have been waking up at 4:50 every morning, doing my visualizations, rampages of appreciation, meditation and then working out by about 5:30 am. I made a big commitment to myself. To be more self-disciplined with my inner wisdom. To follow through, so I can let go of some of the "what ifs." My day is full with more studies, now, and of course my business too, so this schedule is taking me away from the comforts of my home. And some people don't like it!
Most of the time I was able to do business and studies at home, so I was able to tend to things around the house, like the dogs and the usual maintenance. Now I can't. It's not that things are chaotic, they are just different. Others are noticing the change. I don't mind it at all, but not everyone does.
What do you do when you have a dream and you begin taking action on your desires but you feel the tension from others because they don't like it? Will this tense feeling make you go back to your old ways, pleasing your friends or partner, like a puppy dog, because you don't want to have or feel the conflict? I've pretty well had enough of pleasing others. I'm getting used to feeling uncomfortable and dealing with adversity because I've realized life is too short. And you know what, I really and truly desire to fulfill my dreams. I know they exist. They are all out in the Quantum Soup of unlimited possibilities stirring up and ready for manifestation.
Stay focused, be happy, believe and have that ineffable faith that you have everything you desire. What you desire truly desires you. Others that have lost sight of who they are like to pull you down to where they are so they can feel comfortable, maybe even have that illusion of security. They see you in action, courageous and daring, fulfilling your dreams, becoming stronger and more confident each day. They may be scared that they may lose you, and that can be true too.
But will you hold yourself back to satisfy someone else's need dishonoring yours? For many years I have done that. Have you? My time has come and I hope yours has to, to continue to move forward. I'm no longer looking in that rear-view mirror, the replication of my upbringing.
