Episode 38: Welcome back to You Are the Magic Pill, I’m your host Victoria. On today’s episode today I wanted you to know that because Thanksgiving’s next week and we’re full of gratitude this month, we should be full of gratitude every day, every month. Right? And so I just wanted to make sure that I told you, thank you, especially in the month of November. Thank you for tuning in with me. My goal is to inspire you to go out and change the world, for you to be grateful and thankful for all life’s experiences. In this lifetime, this precious life that you have, this is it. This is your lifetime right now in this human form, whatever you chose to happen this time around, this is it. So, what are you going to do with your life?
• And I know that that can happen because when you don’t have the eyes to see the good and the bad, then you will not appreciate it. But honestly, when things happen to us that are not that great, it actually pushes us to become great, right? It pushes us to be our best. I don’t know about you, but when somebody comes into my life or an experience comes into my life, I might get like upset or depressed or something like that might happen. But then man, it just ignites me. Like it puts that flame inside of me. And sometimes you need to cry. Sometimes you need to have that emotion from inside of you, to push you. And it just fuels your fire, right? To appreciate that when you have those encounters of people that trigger you or people that push you, that’s good. I may not feel that great in the moment, but it’s a good thing. It’s a really good thing. Especially if you become aware that that’s what’s happening, that this person came into your life, or this experience came into your life in order for you to see the direction you need to go to get pushed into becoming your best version.

• You know, I love Rumi and so I’m going to read it to you. It says gratitude is wine for the soul. Go ahead and get drunk. I just think that’s kind of cool because I think we should get so drunk that you see the good and everything that comes to you. You know what I mean? Like get so drunk with gratitude. Think about like you’re grateful for your home that you have, no matter what it is, you know, be grateful for the car that you drive, be grateful for your job. Be grateful for your family. Be grateful. If you have water to drink, be grateful for all the little things. Be grateful for the air that you breathe. Be grateful for the eyes that you can see with. If you have eyes to see with, if you have ears to hear with, be grateful for that, be grateful for your mind. Be grateful for your thoughts. Be grateful for everything that comes into your life.

• When you think about it, you’re like, why is this person in my life? All they do is cause me chaos, but they’re not. They’re bringing out the best in you. So be like, what am I learning from this? They’re just playing their role. They’re playing their role. They’re playing their part to push yourself, to get up and do what you came here to do, you know what I mean? And so just appreciate it. I’ll be like, man, you’re really pushing me. You are pushing me. You are pushing me to rise the up. Right? So my message today is to just be grateful and thankful. And the more that you become grateful and thankful, even though you think your life sucks, or you think that you don’t have everything that you should right now in this moment, shift that and you realize that you do have exactly what you need right now.

• I get to help people in my job. I get to provide for my daughters. I get to be out in the world, having experiences. I get to meet all kinds of people. And you know, for that, I’m grateful. Am I running around all the time with no time? Yes I am. But I’m still thankful for it. I’m thankful because I know that I’m in the place that I’m supposed to be because I followed my bliss. I followed what ignited me, although it’s not exactly the most perfect situation. I’m still finding gratitude in it. And I’m still finding joy in my heart for it. And I’m just so full of joy right now. I’m so full for all things that are coming into my life and it doesn’t always stay there. But, I feel like I could just explode sometimes because I get so joyful and I get so connected to that power. (08:54)
