You can't make anyone else change and no one else can make you change.  That's true.  Only you have the power to change yourself -- on anything.  In fact, changing yourself is the only thing you actually have control over.

Here's the thing, changing yourself doesn't mean making big, scary shifts in our lives, changing ourselves can simply mean choosing to react differently.

The good stuff...
"[...] is priceless. Not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. Not imaginary, but practical. Not based on fear, but on possibility. Not designed to make you feel better, designed to make you better.
Seek it out and embrace the true friends that care enough to risk sharing it.
I'm not sure what takes more guts—giving it or getting it."

“You get what you pay for” is an axiom we use to assess the value of a product.  That’s how we’re best familiar with it.   But it’s also a great way to assess our own value and the value of the lessons we’ve learned.  

Here’s the thing.  If we’re skating on the surface of our lives, avoiding risks, playing it safe, listening to the drivel that fear chatters in our ears, then our experience in living life has cost us nothing.  On the other hand, the more emotionally expensive an experience, the more it cost us in blood, sweat and tears, the more value that experience has for us.

If you’ve had a challenging life, a life that seems to throw obstacles in your way at every turn.  Or, if you have a need to challenge yourself, to keep jumping off cliffs to test out your wings, then send the Universe a prayer of thanks, because chances are you recognize the value of who you have become having paid dearly for that wisdom and insight.

It’s critical that we know who we are otherwise anyone can convince us we're anything.  And believe me, they’ll line up to do it.

And with all its stealth and quiet the Universe will assert itself, relentlessly. It will not let up until you get it.  It’ll make you broke, get you sick and allow you to make the biggest most awful mistakes you can imagine just to get its message across.  Watch out and buckle up.

The other day the words THE DEBT IS PAID appeared in my head seemingly out of nowhere.  All of a sudden I felt this overwhelming sense of peace and clarity, like a puzzle piece had just fallen into place.  

Our heart speaks to us all the time and it speaks clearly and succinctly and tells us exactly what we need to know.  The only problem is that it speaks softly and if we’re not paying attention we’ll miss it.  Vigilance is the key. If we’re searching for answers to a problem, get still and listen.  The answer will float through the ether and descend perfectly formed into our consciousness.
