peaceAbraham Lincoln said that, “Most people are about as happy as they make their mind up to be.” He also said, “If you are at the end of your rope tie a knot in it and hang on.” I must admit I’ve tied a lot of knots in my lifetime and every time I did the results were awesome but more about that in a bit.

I know that you really are as loved or unloved as you make up your mind to be. Years ago I wrote a blog post about feeling unloved. Of all my posts that one gets the most traffic. In the comments I notice a lot of people want to argue for their right to feel unloved. I’m sure they don’t see it that way but we swim in a sea of love. It is up to us to let it in.

I often hear “No one knows how painful it is to feel so unloved.” I remember all to well how it felt when I cut myself off from love. My inner dialog constantly reminded me that I wasn’t worthy of love, I certainly wasn’t loved and a whole lot of other useless lies about myself, the world and life itself.

We all swim in a sea of love

We can cut ourselves off from that love but that doesn’t negate the fact that the love is always there. I often say, “Only the love is real” because everything other than love is an illusion created by our filter system (our mind).

We can hold up a smoke screen, created by our mind to pretend we aren’t submerged in totally unconditional, expansive, all inclusive love but no matter how ‘real’ that smoke screen seems it is still a lie.

We are love so how can we not be loved?


So you are at the end of your rope, you just can’t stand another moment of not having – love, money, happiness, joy, peace of mind, the list can go on and on. It is so much more useful to remember that everything you’ve ever wanted in your life is only a thought away.

  • If you want love think loving thoughts
  • If you want money allow money into your life
  • If you want happiness focus on happy memories
  • If you want joy watch some small children playing

I think you get the idea. Your mind may argue away your happiness, joy, abundance and love etc. but you don’t have to listen. Your mind was NEVER meant to be in charge of your life anyway.

On July 8th I’ll be starting a four week class that will show you how to easily create an awesome life. Tune in for more details but in the meantime open yourself up to the endless wonderful possibilities life holds.

You are love, you are loved and you are lovable. You are a limitless being of love and light and laughter. You are the creator, the god/goddess/ all there is in your life. Let your light shine!

Have an awesome day unless you have plans otherwise. If you do, I’d change your plans!

With love and aloha, Susan
