Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

An English couple who have battled depression for years recently saved their marriage and got a new lease on life by attending a positive thinking workshop. They learned:

-    to stop living in the past,
-    how to shift their perspective from negative to positive,
-    and that it really doesn’t matter what other people think.

For British readers, more details on the workshop are available at www.beyourownkindofbeautiful.co.uk.

All three are vitally important but for reasons that go far beyond the power of positive thinking. Obviously, it is incredibly valuable to make one’s life better, marriage and all, but there’s more. We are here for far more than a comfortable joy ride.

Discovering our personal purpose is a key component of the fulfilled life. Few of us make it from birth to death without wondering why we’re here. Some devote time to finding out, others devote time to denial.  Either way, there is a reason we came.

Whether a person becomes a celebrity world-changer, or lives an obscure life of anonymity, we all actually share the same purpose: to be our authentic selves. This is only possible in the present moment, so the admonition to stop living in the past is doubly important. Living in the present is much more than visiting it! Being fully present, sustained moment after moment brings a depth of fulfillment that cannot be duplicated any other way. That’s why meditation is so helpful in shifting one’s orientation.

Being fully present is also where we discover our true beauty. Life is beautiful, diverse as it is, and so are we, just the way we are. Coming to rest in the here and now, embracing the moment, we come to love ourselves. That turns life into something wholly enjoyable and provides the basis for making a positive impact during our brief years, quietly, or with headlines.
