Conscious Choice: If you focus on mistakes . . .

I’ve been re-reading my own book, Thriving Work, as I am coaching two of my clients through it.  What strikes me when I read a piece that I have already read many times before: in every moment we have the opportunity to consciously choose where we focus.  Yet, so often, I don’t make that choice as consciously as I would like!

Do I focus on my human “mistakes” and limitations or do I focus on living and working from my Divinity?

In each moment, the choice is mine.

Today, I offer you one of the affirmative prayers from the book.  So simply, it keeps my focus in a great place.  Off of me and on Oneness and on the person in front of me . . .

Through Me

Through Me

Oh Great Spirit,

I affirm my ever–increasing awareness of your omnipresence.

I appreciate you always at my side,
Working through my hands,
Speaking through my voice,
Loving through my heart.

I delight with you.
I delight through you.
I delight as you . . .

Fully engaged in life,
Thrilled to be
Your hands,
Your voice,
Your heart.
