There a few things I know for sure, based on my own experience with the relationships in my life. It is these things that I’m going to share with you; perhaps there are a few you may want to look at and incorporate into your relationship life, too. Try it. Or don’t. It’s all good in the hood.I will tell you this, though… I experienced a beautiful blossoming effect once I started consciously making and working at these choices.
It’s only when I actually slow myself down from being sucked back into the past, into the hurt and into that fear based way of living, that I can pause long enough and realize I don’t have to hurt AS that old girl. I don’t have to GO back to those experiences. I can find the lesson and leave the experience….
There are some really terrible people out there. But, the cool thing is that there are even more super duper people out there… Just take a look around…
You are not alone. I see you. I feel you.
I think that when we release and let go of something from our past, we energetically create space for something new to come in. When we look at our year, and let go of the experiences that moved or rocked us, all awhile keeping the lesson it taught us, we can propel ourselves into more life, more excitement, more love.
Most of the objections to self-love come from misconceptions of what love is…
When you start living and believing that you are enough right this moment, life will start unfolding in ways that supports that. When you start living and believing that you are loved, right this moment, life will continue to unfold in ways that makes this truer and truer for you.
Until you forgive, you will keep giving your future to the past.
“This practice is not about making yourself lovable; you already are lovable… It is not about improving yourself; it is about accepting yourself. It is not about changing yourself; it is about changing your mind about yourself. And it is not about reinventing yourself; it is about being even more of the real you.”
Of all the amazing leaders in history – MLK, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, all the names that stand out – do you believe any of them would have had the success they did creating change and encouraging peace by following a path that was heavily infused with fear? I don’t believe they would have. A less fearful and more loving path seems to create a stronger movement and change that is substantial and permanent.
