To fully honor the life coursing through you, you must have the courage to live the life you love. More than a nice-sounding cliché, this is a truth worth conscious exploration: Are you living YOUR idea of a good life, ruled by YOUR intentions instead of the whims of the world and the wants of others? Use this affirmation as guidance for the reality that best suits your soul.
“Manifesting is not about attracting what you want. Manifesting is an awareness and an understanding that you attract what you are.” — Wayne Dyer
This is Your Lifetime to Experience Being a Human, and You’re Worthy of an Experience That Feels Right to You
I am powerful enough to live in accordance with my own values, desires, and truths.
You are good enough, and you are powerful enough to contribute to the kind of world you want to live in; you can create with heart, do things with love, and cultivate the ability to honor the opinions of others without clothing yourself in them.
We are all here together, doing the best that we can to lead the kind of life that feels right to us inside. The trick is not to get so caught up in another person’s “right” that you forget your own.
To live the life you love, recognize that you belong to yourself above all, and to all the visions you hold for yourself.“You did not come to face reality, you came to create reality.” — Abraham-Hicks Click To Tweet
You are connected to the life that you long for; if you desire something, stay with the feelings it brings to you. What do you want? If I asked you, could you answer? Could you write down all the ways you want life to feel for you? How do you want your life to feel?
You are in charge of how you see the things you see, and how you experience any given experience. You are here to experience being alive, and that’s an all-inclusive truth that includes mistakes and victories, learning and unlearning, liking and disliking, setting boundaries and breaking rules.
You attract more of what you give yourself to, because you attract what you ARE.
The best way to live a fulfilling life (one that resonates deeply with your being) is to have such a reverence for the overall experience of being alive that you consciously prefer to love your way through the experience.
If you give yourself wholeheartedly to a life that feels true, right, good, and loving to you on the inside, that’s the kind of experience you’ll perpetuate.
Take Loving Responsibility for the Qualities Your Life Reflects
I am responsible for how loved, happy, worthy, and free I feel.
It’s totally understandable that the unloving behavior and signals from another might cause us to shrink from connection—to close our hearts, relinquish trust, maintain unforgiving stances, and feel a little less loving and lovable. It is bound to happen, but we can transcend any cause for suffering.
Ultimately, I am responsible for how loved and loving I know myself to be. I hold the key to my own happiness, because I am the only thinker in my head; no one else can claim rightful power over the kingdom of my mind. I decide whether I am the victim or the one capable of rising above.“She remembered who she was and the game changed.” — Lalah Deliah Click To Tweet
How can you live the life you love if you’ve forgotten that the life you live reflects the qualities that you give? If you’re not willing to recognize the part you play in the manifestations of your life, you forget you have any power whatsoever to alter the reality of your experiences.
You are more powerful than what happens to you.
Someone else may have behaved without love, but does that define your capacity to love and be loved, or does it express their capacity for love?
The qualities you’d like your life to reflect don’t happen by chance, and they’re not determined by other people and situations outside of your power: reality, as you experience it, reflects what you’ve chosen to believe in.
Do you believe in a loving world, or a hostile world? What kind of reality are you consciously creating for yourself; do you believe you have power over how you experience reality? What are you giving? What you give, you empower.
Life, as we ourselves understand it to be, is not about what happens, but about how we keep on living.
Be Courageous Enough to Live the Life You Love, Regardless of What Anything Outside of You Suggests
I am courageous enough to set boundaries so that I can remain solid as I attempt to create the reality I want to create.
You’re worthy of receiving all the blessings you could ever hope for, and those you never imagined, but you’ve got to believe you’re worthy of receiving. You must honor your inherent worth, and to do that you’ll need to set boundaries—for yourself and for others.
What you believe about yourself is felt by everyone around you, and responded to in kind.
Setting boundaries for how you want to be treated and thought of, for what you have time for and what really matters to you, is an integral part of honoring your worthiness to receive the bounties of a life well lived.If you can't take anymore, it's time to give yourself fully to what feels right in your heart.

Do not act despite what others say; act because of what you believe. Do not agree just to satisfy the desires of someone else; say “yes” because it feels lined up with what you desire. Boundary-setting is an act of great courage and radical self-care.
Strengthen your belief in your worthiness of a life that honors your soul’s callings and your heart’s intentions: reality as you live it will respond in kind. You’ll see what matters with more clarity; you’ll say YES to what lights you up and you’ll give a loving NO to whatever isn’t 100% right for you.
