What you value and actions you take, align to form a congruent life... or not. Your goals are set. You take off on your journey. You accomplish your mission, (or not?) achieved by being the best of who you can be. Who are you? What do you want? What do you believe in? What do you treasure? Are your actions aligning with your goals? What actions will bring congruency to your daily life? to moments? to your 2021? Our happiness requires a vital sense of congruency, what it means, how to accomplish it and actions taken.
“My life is an indivisible whole, and all my activities run into one another... My life is my message." Mahatma Gandhi
What is congruency to me? It's an authentic journey, a genuine lifestyle, a sincere way of aspiring to be our best selves at all times. It's the ability to rest at night with a peaceful heart because your inner beliefs ran with the big dogs today, your intentions and actions. Your values took priority over sudden longings that go against what you stand for. Your smile was genuine and bright because your behavior engulfed your most authentic self and the feeling was well... beautiful. Congruency is being in awe of your own self. It's being able to respect the adventures you partake in, the influence you hold, the guidance you provide.
Congruency Challenge: Today, if only for today... Align your values and beliefs with your thoughts, actions and feelings. A deeper challenge: Later tonight write down your values and beliefs and what you truly care about. Look at the day and find moments where you were not aligned. How did you feel? How does it make you feel now?
When Your Actions Run away from Your Values
We will not always be our best. We will fail, trip over ourselves, our past aspirations and those habits we uninstalled will creep up on us, but when we know we TRIED our best to be our best selves, when we attempted to align with our most amazing future self in the now, when we became aware of a shift in either direction, we adjusted and adapted and are willing to do better next time. We can smile, because we are being congruent and living our best life, now. Share for others on your own social media feeds. Write what Congruence means to you. Add a hashtag so we can find You. #happyinsides #congruency2021
