What does it mean to get your GLOW on? GLOW is an acronym for Growing – Loving – Opening – Willing. It’s a deep dive into personal transformation that focuses on the most important relationship you will ever have- the relationship with yourself.
We often run our lives by our deep-seated beliefs that unconsciously drive the choices we make. Many of us don’t even question our choices, and wonder why our circumstances are what they are. Do you ever feel like your life’s circumstances run you, rather than feeling like you are in the driver’s seat? Getting your GLOW on is about liberating your soul’s full expression, moving from feeling like a victim of your circumstances to recognizing that you always have choices in your life, even if your choices are difficult.
One simple step you can take to get your GLOW on is simply pausing and breathing. Most of us have knee-jerk reactions to our circumstances. If you pause and take deep breaths, you may get a new perspective.
Two keys to learning about yourself and others are to be curious and to be neutral. If you can get curious and find out where others are coming from, you may learn that virtually nothing they do is about you personally. One of my favorite sayings is from the Talmud: “We don’t see things as they are; we see things as we are.”
What’s the most empowering habit you can incorporate into your daily life? Do your best to not make assumptions and make it a practice to be curious rather than taking things personally. If you are curious, you will learn that people’s beliefs, behaviors, attitudes and assumptions are their own. These two things alone can transform your life in unimaginable ways! Remember, life doesn’t happen to you, it happens because of you.
