Decisions . . . they can be liberating or paralyzing.
They are liberating if we relish in the freedom we have when it comes to choosing everything from our outfit to our job to our thoughts.
But they are paralyzing if we hang out in limbo waaaaaaay to long going back and forth between options. Our head may be telling us one thing while our heart is nudging us toward another.
When it comes to making a choice, is better to listen to our head or our heart? In today’s vlog I share about a recent decision I was in limbo about for weeks because my head and heart were not in agreement.
A Breakup. There is not much that feels worse than heartache from ending a relationship. This week I’ve heard from a lot of people who are going through a breakup – either a romantic one or a friendship – so I wanted to share ways to expedite your healing process and avoid unnecessary struggle (and if you aren’t going through one, please pass this along to someone it may serve).
If your heart is hurting, you have my compassion. You also have my reassurance that you won’t feel this way forever and you will be okay. On the other side of a breakup is a breakthrough. But in order to get to the breakthrough full of all the yummy lessons this relationship served up, you have to get through the yucky part of the initial separation.
What adds to the challenge of any breakup is we come up against our expectation that it was supposed to last forever, but not all relationships are supposed to last forever. Some come with what I call an “expiration date.” The purpose of relationship from a spiritual perspective is to serve as a mirror, to give us the opportunity to see and heal our issues, learn major life lessons, grow our consciousness and open ourselves up to love even more. And sometimes a relationship has to end for us to learn the lessons that are most valuable.
I often get asked how to really make a habit stick – like going to the gym, meditating or eating healthy. The most honest answer is: just do it! But I can appreciate that is easier said than done.
In today’s vlog I share my three top tips for making a habit or practice a permanent part of your life that is as easy to just do it as brushing your teeth everyday (and I hope my assumption that you brush your teeth every day is correct!).
Please do not give up. Even when it gets hard . . . especially when it gets hard because the truth is: It is not always easy to get the things we want, but it is always possible @christinhassler (tweet this!)
I see so many people give up and loose hope when things get hard. They take it as feedback that it’s not meant to be and call it surrender when it is really resignation. Or they loose faith in themselves or the Universe and settle for less than their heart desires.
Not everything in our life comes with grace and ease but we have what it takes to make our dreams come true. Sure they may not all come in the form we expected (read more about that here), but every dream you have can become a reality – you just may have to work for it.
In this week’s vlog I teach you an 8-step process for pursuing goals. Be sure to watch to get the detailed breakdown from me as well as a fun shopping analogy
