What If?

 

What would you do if you were told you had 3 months to live? Would you cherish every second and relish it with more passion? Would you get your affairs in order so you don’t leave those behind burdened with planning your memorial or dealing with discarding your stuff or trying to find your passwords to all of your accounts?

Would you hug longer, would you kiss more, would you say I love you to everyone in your life? Would you mend fences and make amends with those you’ve hurt or those who have hurt you ? Would you breath deeper, suddenly travel to all the places you’ve longed to visit? Would you climb mountains or skydive or parasail across seas and oceans? Would you finally burn that pretty candle you’re saving for a special occasion?  Would you finally burn that pretty candle you’re saving for a special occasion? Would you eat the ice cream late at night or have the lobster for supper? Would you worry less about what you look like and more about what you are leaving behind in the way of goodness or something useful? Would you write notes or make videos for your loved ones and children so they have you with them in some small way during the pinnacle moments of their continuing lives? Would you touch everyone you could touch, cause a spark to lift them, feed them all the wisdom you have garnered in your time on earth? Would you bless the rude guy in traffic instead of curse him and would you slow down to see the pain in the eyes of those you’ve ignored on the street corner…would you stop and give them all the money in your purse or wallet ..NOW?

What would you do if you were told you had 3 months to live? Then do it today, live in the moment. Stop worrying about your tomorrows when your today is at hand. LIVE, LIFT, LOVE, PRAY, TOUCH, GIVE, BREATH, SENSE, FEEL, DANCE, SING, REJOICE, BE fully engulfed in every second of every day. ~Ariaa Jaeger Ariaa.comDSCN934222

The Wisdom of Restraint

 

AriaaJaegerRestraintHow much self-control do you have and do you realize that self-control is power? Did you know that when you fail to use it by popping off, voicing your useless opinion or stating the obvious, you are actually giving up your power? Now don’t get me wrong, there are times when you have to engage productively to create change as with Human/LGBT/Animal and Senior rights or other causes for the environment or other. But notice the word “productively”.

Due in part to social media which has become a platform for the ignorant, the angry, fame whores, the weak and attention seekers, we are seeing the onslaught of ugly spewed ad nauseum daily. Everyone wants to throw in their 2 cents typically revealing the personal dysfunctional issues, which they have clearly failed to address. As a Spiritual Life Strategist and wellness counselor, its a mine field for me. I see all the souls I could help if only they were willing. Sadly in most cases they enjoy their vitriol or mommy damage way too much to ever heal it. In fact most of these who behave badly feed from it. They need it like they need breath never realizing how clearly others see their pain or personal demons.

Restraint is an art form and if people would just take a ten count pause and ask one simple question, “How can I ADD something useful to this conversation?” vs “How can show my arrogance and stupidity right now?” the world would vastly improve. As one grows older you realize some things will not change with words, that words are useless and a waste of energy. Actions speak louder than words. Take your power back and measure whether your words and behavior contribute something valuable or simply add to the cesspool of stupid. ~Ariaa Jaeger Ariaa.com (if you want to heal it, get in touch with me.)
