Inspire Moment #108: Twenty-Second Time Out

They have them in NBA and NCAA basketball games, the Twenty-Second Time Out.  It is a halt in the game that is called at a strategically important point.  Inspire Moment #108 is about the Twenty-Second Time Out in your game, Your Life.  The questions I want you to ask yourself today is this…

1) When do you take a halt in the game (of life) your playing in to think strategy? 

If you’re in it to win it, what’s going to be different about today?  Dwell upon having a more peaceful and joyful strategy.  Because, you know what?  It’s not just another day! (that’s the way I think at least)…It’s a NEW DAY to try a NEW strategy of doing, of acting, of serving, and all you need is a Twenty Second Time Out to start thinking that way.  

2) When is the best time(s) for you to take your Twenty Second Time Out(s)? 

Find the time.  The worst time of the day could very well be the best time of day for you to take twenty seconds.  If you don’t have a stop watch handy, I have a suggestion!  Put your hand on your heart for twenty beats and rest in YOU and your strategy for today because before you know it you will be back to the game of life…and life can change in Twenty Seconds!

So let’s take some action!  Why not take a Twenty Second Time Out right now?  Start by taking a big deep breath in, and then release.  You have plenty of time and when you are done, return for more Inspire Moments.

Inspire Moment #107: The Onion

Life is like an Onion…

Like the layers of an Onion, in Life you never know what chapters or layers might cause you to cry and tear up.  Some layers are thin while others are really thick.  Heck, that’s what happens when you peel an Onion, you cry!

So let me ask you this, if it’s OK to cry through the different layers of an Onion, how can you allow yourself to cry through different chapters in your Life?  Some chapters are much easier than others, while some seem like they take forever and get much harder as the days go by.  Other layers of life are a breeze, almost like the first layer you peel back of the Onion.  No sweat, that was easy!

Inspire Moment #107 is to help you give yourself a break and cry if you have to!  No matter how many layers you have to peel or tears you cry, I promise it’s all worth it.  Because when it’s all said and done, the more layers you experience the more flavorful your life will be!

Inspire Moment #106: Get Anchored

Do you realize HOW you start your day can make a huge impact on the WAY your day will go? Take Inspire Moment #106 and grant yourself some time today to Get Anchored before going out into the world.  When you take time each morning to get centered with your thoughts and focus on the positive, the seas will be much calmer and the waves won’t set you adrift.

Coach Angie’s suggestions below will help you get anchored before heading out to sea…

*Turn your Cell Phone on at 8am (That’s right, shut it off at night!)

*Stay in bed until you speak out loud “5 things I’m grateful for in my life right now are…”

*Take 10 deep breaths and sing out loud “Today is gonna be a great day!”

*Read a Devotional

*Expose any unhealthy thoughts by writing them out in your journal

WHEN you Get Anchored in WHO you are and WHAT you are living for before you head out, the day will go much smoother and you will have more peace!
