Are you Living Above the Line or Below the Line?!

Friday, August 20, 2010

I recently attended a workshop and a business partner (and friend) of mine did this exercise which is a great way for all of us to question where we are living.  We all deserve to live the best life possible and those around us deserve the best of us!  So, my question for you is are you living above the line or below the line?  What Pam, can you explain that better?

It is simple!  As humans (moms, daughters, sisters, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc...) we all live above and below the line.  Now, picture a horizontal line in the middle of a piece of paper.  There is the "above the line" space and there is the "below the line space".  

When you are living above the line, here are some words to describe some thoughts, feelings and actions that are occuring within you:

faith, peace, grace, vision, satisfaction, passion, forgiveness, giving, fulfillment, joyful, serving, abundance, excitement confidence, happy, expectancy, acceptance.

On the contrary, here is living below the line......

fear, frustration, stagnant, overwhelmed, guilt, doubt, worry, rejection, gossip, low confidence, low self-esteem, disbelief, procrastination, judgement, distraction.

We all go above and below the line, but in order to live our best life, reach our full potential and to bring out the best in others, we need to make a choice to live above the line, and if we go below, we need to identify and move on to thoughts, feelings and actions which are above the line!

Above the line is all about creating and choosing (it is an intention and purpose to live that way).
Below the line is automatic and reactive, it is the opposite of living with intention and purpose.

HIPP Moms and HIPP friends, I encourage you to LIVE ABOVE THE LINE!!!!  YOU deserve to live your best life and the people in your life deserve the best of you!

HIPP Moms live above the line, and when we sink below, we acknowledge it and CHOOSE to surface above!

Draw the line in the sand today and DECIDE to LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE, above the line!
Wishing you a above the line day, practice it for just one day!

Ready, set, GO!
