Circle of Words

Today’s Happy Box: What is your circle of words?circleofwords_HB2015

In my opinion, communication is a fundamental and necessary skill to fulfillment, happiness and success in life, love and work.

I do enjoy that uncomfortable body language that arises when clients realize we are working on their own inner dialogue. With no possible escape route, fire alarm to pull or excuse that can get them out of this, the thinly veiled squirming, sweating and disapproving faces pour out in a free fall. Ahh, the sweet sweet pleasure of power.

In all seriousness though, I enjoy it because the discomfort is a sign that we are making some break throughs. Progress and true change come only when you are pushed beyond your comfort zone.

Your ability to speak concisely, with grace and with clear intention is the biggest gift you can give yourself. It impacts your career, your home life and community connections each and every day of your life.

Sadly, as a society, we are so uncomfortable with words these days. Who doesn’t rely on technology to communicate or avoid communication in an uncomfortable moment? Or even worse, rather than speaking to our life partners about the issues near and dear to our hearts, many go to a counsellor just to have a safe space to talk.

I am not too proud to share that my own visits to the marriage counsellor led to a major shift in my own personal communication style. Hey, when we know better we do better.

I invite you to write down your circle of words that convey the energy you want to manifest in your life. Your inner world creates your outer world, what do you want yours to be?

Think of the circle of words exercise like a vision board for your brain. Type them up right now in the comment box or get out your journal. Whatever feels good for you.

Just do it.

Live life in FULL bloom.

  1. Sometimes I realize that it isn’t in the words … Its in the readiness for people to take an honest look at themselves…. And then be able to communicate from this place, rather than old patterns. This can be a challenging place to move beyond … But it brings clarity and authenticity… And hope!
    Keep up the good work Lisa 🙂

  2. My words: Grace, freedom, fun, relaxed, open, spirit-directed, mindful, aware, loving, engaged, creative, compassionate, accepting and allowing.

    Thank you for this….

    1. You are awesome Noelle! I love the word grace, I even wanted to name my second daughter Grace. Compassionate, accepting and allowing will take you far. Be well my sweet soul sister!

      1. I have been captivated by the word grace lately. I will likely end up writing a piece on it. I remember it feeling old to me as a child and now it has this whole different soft, inviting, peaceful vibe to it. Back at you, sister girl!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE this post, Lisa!!! You are such a Blessing!!! Thank you for what you do for the world!
    Tomorrow is the day I do believe the Happy Box Post will be up on Petals. I still have yet to put it together, but I will do that tonight, or early tomorrow morn. I will notify you the second it is published, I promise. You are gonna LOVE this one, Lisa! I promise you! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

  4. Your posts are making me smile and I heartily thank you for that 🙂
    I think my circle of thought would be somewhat like this : Career, family, love, friendship, laughter, carefree, express, content, smiles from strangers 🙂

  5. Great idea with the circle of words. I’m loving this happy box. I did something slightly similar last week where I wrote down the words on small bits if paper and added them to my bowl with a rose quartz in the centre to represent love. I imagined it like deciding on the recipe of my life and what ingredients I wanted to add it. I’ll have to add radiance and authencity. Thank you for this post 🙂
