Excerpts From The Spark
spark \spärk\: anything that activates or stimulates; inspiration or catalyst.
What does it mean to live a spark-filled life? It means waking up to a morning full of possibility and potential that you intentionally plug into. It means moving past your past and leaning in fully to the present moment to create the kind of future you want, full of joy, abundance, and magical moments.
When you live a spark-filled life, you let go of old, limiting beliefs and adopt new ones that ignite your spirit and heal your heart. It’s focusing on what you want to create in your life and then taking the action to make it happen. There’s an amazing life available to you and you hold the flame within you to ignite your best life.
The Mindset of Resilience
There are certain ingredients that go into planting and cultivating a thriving garden. We have to take care of it, make sure it gets adequate water and sunlight, and pull the weeds.
Like a garden, resilience can be grown. It involves pulling the weeds of negative thoughts and planting the flowers of positive feelings by focusing on day-to-day positive experiences. As we tend to this inner garden, we begin to cultivate the inner calm, strength, and happiness that will allow us to bloom.
The more you practice ways to calm down your reactive minds, the more you will grow this kind of healthy, flourishing garden in your mind.
