Mondays always gave me butterflies in my stomach. As I woke up this morning, so many old tapes were playing around and around in my head. I had a choice to let those old tapes continue to play and ruin my day or just let go and know that the best was going to happen. Well, I chose to just let go and as this day has unfolded, beautiful things that I hadn't anticipated started to happen. It's all about just letting go with blind faith and knowing that all is well!

I woke up this morning listing everything I had to do today in my head. I felt so pressured and said to myself "I can't possibly get all this done today." When I went over my list again, I realized that most of the things did NOT have to get done ASAP. I am learning to prioritize and to quit pressuring myself so much! What for? It is just a bad habit. Teaching myself to go with the flow....

Met a friend on my hiking trail yesterday. She said she was dealing with a lot of fear and was angry with herself for having the fear in the first place.. I told her not tobe angry with herself. Fear is a part of our growing process. Fear helps us to understand what we need to work on. You do not have to pretend to be positive, put on a fake smile and say affirmations that you just don't feel. Take the time to understand the fear and slowly chip away at changing your perception. Allow yourself to go through what you need to go through to come out on the other side and when you smile, you will really feel it. Be authentic and honest with yourself. Then, when you can say the affirmations with true feeling behind it, it will all fall into place.

As you move towards your goals and dreams, don't let a "no" stand in the way. I know how discouraging it can be sometimes. But put it in the perspective that it was not the right person, opportunity, place, etc. It is most important to never lose that unwavering faith and belief in yourself. Keep moving forward knowing that everything will happen just as it is supposed to happen and it always does.

The universal truth in all religions are the same. It all boils down to the love and respect that we have for each other. It feels so great to make at least one person smile and just to say thank you to someone that has helped you along the way. We do not express our love and gratitude enough to each other. And most importantly, give yourself a big hug because you have come this far....you deserve it!!

You have to move past your fears to really be able to understand and see with clarity what is really going on around you. When the clouds lift, the sun can shine. But, you have to allow those clouds to lift. When you make that conscious shift, you will be able to see things clearly. Fears are old memories and feelings that no longer exist. So, you have a choice. Live in the past or in the here and now. Say to yourself "I AM SAFE". Breathe, relax, and then feel it. It will be clear sailing once again.

They say that you should smile or read a positive affirmation when you feel depressed. But what if you just don't feel that smile or affirmation? If it's not authentic, start changing your perspectives about the problem or situation. Let go of the burden from the past and the "what if's" about the future. None of that exists. Live in the moment. Take one step at a time. What you can't handle just give it out to the universe or to God with faith. Feel gratitude for all that IS right now....

I am a true survivor. I am so grateful to be alive to be able to tell my story. My autobiography, I Married Mr. America, tells it all. No fiction, just pure fact. It took many, many years to get the courage to say it like it is and that's exactly what I did. I want to reach out to all those who have been so abused that they felt like less than a grain of sand. I want to take your hand and let you know that is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Will keep you informed as to the release date.....IMMA will be shopped for a movie.

In this New Year, I am taking one step in front of the other in the new direction of 'Simply Lindy'....http://www.simplylindy.com/ The air feels lighter, my consciousness feels a bit clearer.. It's all about being real. It doesn't matter what others think of you..it's what you think of yourself. The more you love and understand yourself, the easier it is to love and understand others... AND go with the flow....
