You are the star of your own show





Yes YOU.
Yeah I MEAN YOU, that person over there–reading this right now.
I’m talking to you!

Guess what?

YOU are the star of your own show.

As Kute Blackson said over on the Daily Love yesterday, “YOU have ZERO competition in being yourself.”

So own it!

I subbed a more beginner’s/restorative yoga class today. And the theme was simple. Theodore Roethke said, “I learn by going where I have to go.”

GO WITH IT. Go where you need to go.  Get rid of self-doubt and negativity.

You run your own show.  You control your reactions.

In Meditations from the Mat, Rolf Gates says “Life is as it is….The only thing we can control is our attitude.  We have the choice of life or death, love or fear, in each moment.  And we bear the responsibility for that choice in each moment.”

So why are you waiting to make a choice? Why are you worrying about what the next step should be? DO IT.

You can’t control the journey. You can’t control the other players in your life. But you CAN write your own script.

Stop trying to be someone else.
Stop worrying about what your next move should be.
Stop pretending to feel differently than you actually feel.

Start opening yourself up to you.
Start to choose life, love, happiness in each moment.
Start to really LIVE.

Be the star of your life….

Sometimes I forget I’m a star, and then my friends actually give me a star to hold and huge Hollywood-esque sunglasses. Good to remember. Always!

Be the star of your life!

You are your own main character.  Don’t like a scene in life? You can’t go back and re-shoot. There’s no editing in life.  But you CAN alter your reaction. Love yourself like a Hollywood DIVA.

Make the brave choices.

Be yourself. Your most authentic self. Always.

‘Cause guess what?!?

You’re already a star!

    Love it. We can’t control the things that happen to us in life, but we can control how we react to them and our attitude toward them. Its much easier to be a star when you grasp this and make the decision to have a positive attitude.
