I am always interested in learning how to reach my highest potential (and help you do the same). So when I ran across Have A Magical Day I knew that I had to read it.
In my opinion, very few people know how to have magical lives never mind magical days. It makes me infinitely sad to see so many people waste their talents. To dampen their passions in pursuit of a ‘normal’ life instead of their best life! I sincerely believe that with a little elbow grease everyone can transform their lives! To make every day a magical day.
My biggest takeaways.
I’ve put a lot of time and energy into some of the other pillars of living my best life. These include manifestation, starting each day with gratitude and I’m still working on visualization.
No, what I really took away from this experience is to forgive others and love myself. Those are always my most difficult aspects to overcome.
I don’t know who here can relate but there are so many things in life I have internalized. Other people’s opinions and wishes for what my life should look like turned into, ‘my life isn’t good enough.’
My husband doesn’t struggle with this at all. For me, it’s those people who say to go get a “real job” or “finish your degree” and so many other things.
This is not to say that those aren’t solid bits of advice, but I have had to learn that not everyone’s path is the same. Just because college makes sense to some doesn’t mean it makes sense for everyone.
In fact, other countries do things very differently than the United States in many instances, so then who is right anyway? And after all…
These are all barriers to having a Magical Day!
Those preconceived notions about what life ought to look like? They’re preventing you from living your best life! Some people’s best life might look like getting a degree, a good job, get married, have babies and grow old together. And I’m not knocking it!
I’m just saying that for myself, I have tried to pursue that life and have only been met with resistance. Some of my darkest days were while I was trying to fit into a box that I wasn’t designed for. Wendell mentions that we were all created in God’s image. Therefore, we cannot be wrong how we were made to be. I always felt like a square peg trying to be pushed into a round hole. It didn’t work.
Granted, I still want the house, I have the kids, I’m married and I do have a college degree. But I don’t want the job. I always wanted a little more freedom than that.
That doesn’t make me a bad person or that I’m wrong to feel that way.
To this day family members are sending me job listings and houses in neighborhoods nearby. I just can’t see every day being a magical day when I’m tied to a 9-5. Why would I want to be attached to a house? When I could be working in Germany one day and Australia the next?
It created a situation where I’ve harbored anger towards these individuals. For trying to force me to fit in a box that I simply couldn’t. They’ve attempted to shove their ideals onto and into my life. So that I internalized that there was something wrong with me.
Not to say that there isn’t something wrong with me (haha). Or that there is something wrong with them we’re just different.
It’s taken a lot of self-discovery (and my husband) to help me realize that it’s ok to want to live a different life. Some may not understand it and that’s alright. But I have to forgive them for myself, so that I can have more magical days.
I have to forgive them because they were just trying to help me live my best life. The only way they were able to understand it. We don’t have to understand each other all the time. But we do have to respect each other. And harboring negativity only hurts yourself.
Living under someone else’s thumb was never a comfortable place for me to live. I always danced to the beat of my own drum, whether I wanted to or not.
But I should keep dancing anyway.
I think my favorite bit of advice from Wendell Miracle was to dance! To dance in your car like no one is watching and bring that energy up and your vibration up.
It goes hand in hand with visualization. The one aspect I am still working on. Now, this one may be a mother of two children under the age of two problem. But energy is something I lack. I have always lacked a bit in the energy department but now I can admit I am severely deficient.
I have implemented various strategies to bring my vibration up so that every day can be a magical day. Those include daily affirmations, reading my horoscope, working out and now I have been working on manifestation. With Wendells encouragement I will implement more dancing.
I may not be able to promise every day. Last night I can say was the first time this week I slept 6 straight hours.
Maybe on the days I’m super tired are the days I should be dancing more.
It’s like how going to the gym. The days you really don’t want to go are the days you absolutely should. Dancing like every day is a magical day is exactly how to ensure that it is. You speak it into the universe and bring your energy up to attract more positivity to you.
That’s not to say you won’t have off days. But you’ll be able to look at your off days a little differently. And speaking a magical day into the universe, will make the universe go try to get you that magical day for you.
When you start acting and believing like every day is magical, then it will be. You can create a magical life all your own if you truly believe and want it. Those off days are tests from the universe to see if you really want what you’re trying to achieve. If you do, you’ll find a way through those off days every time. And I hope that you do.
