Single too long…

Single too long…

 


People who have

been single for

too long are the

hardest to love,

because they have 

become so used to being

single, independent,

and self-sufficient, that

it takes something

extraordinary to convince

them that they need

you in their life.

~Lessons taught by life

 

 

*

 

Sometimes I just LOVE being single, and sometimes I wish I had a significant other.

Someone that I could count on,

someone to share the precious moments of life with.

 

I have always wanted a significant “life partner” but my expectations have been higher than reality has brought me.

During my time of being single, I have learned to be more independent, and self-sufficient than when I was with a partner.  It is just a matter of survival.

You live and learn.

When you are responsible to pay all of the bills and totally support yourself, you grow up pretty fast.

Especially if you have children who are depending on you.

Because whether you are alone or together with someone else, your children mean everything to you.

They are a reason to keep going.

To keep on keeping on… no matter what…

 

And then there is the fact that everyone has their own baggage.

I have gotten rid of most of my past baggage through a lot of ;

  • self searching
  • reading
  • journaling
  • counceling
  • praying
  • accepting
  • moving on

So why would I want to take on someone else that still drives around with  a truck load of baggage, ready to dump it all on me?

Someone who is still telling the same old story – over and over…

All in the name of LOVE

That hasn’t done the necessary work of becoming a better version of themselves.

 

No thanks.

So of coarse it takes someone who is extraordinary to become a part of my life.

 

They have to be pretty special to measure up to the standard of living I have attained myself.

That doesn’t mean that I am harder to LOVE.

It just means that I have my “stuff” together and I now know what I want more than ever before.

So why would I want to take on someone or something else that doesn’t measure up?

 

Love is one of the most important things in my life.

I love and am loved.  

I do things every day to share and show love in many ways.

I just don’t need anyone who is enforcing their version of LOVE (control) on me any more.

BECAUSE

I have found unconditional LOVE.

Which means that I have learned to truly LOVE and accept myself and others as we are.

Being complete in our selves but never completely finished learning and growing.

Being satisfied in the now, but always seeking more.

Focus on where you are going…

Focus on where you are going…

Focus on what you have

instead of what you don’t have.

On what’s right in your world

instead of what’s wrong.

On where you’re going

instead of what you’ve been through.

~Billy Cox

Realizing that “NOW” is the only moment you have – can bring you great happiness.

Knowing that this is the moment that is important.  This is the point of power in your life.

 

Being thankful for now and everything that is right in your world will bring more of it to you.

 

Focusing on what is going right and what you have will become a launching point to receiving more of it.

In fact, the more you focus on good things, the more good things are attracted into your life.

Decisions…

Decisions…

You have been guided to make a decision. You have gone about it with reflection and prayer and this is the wisdom, you do not look back.  Under no circumstances do you look back!  You step fully into the decision, absolutely fully, you do not look back.  Because to look back is where you become ill.  This is where you engage suffering, you start to say,’What have I done?  Maybe it was right, maybe it was wrong,’ now you are fragmenting yourself.  Now you are shattering and running back and forth over this bridge trying to have both ways simultaneously, and now both worlds in you will fall apart because you cannot have both worlds.  Now you are living in a world of distrust, completely, instead of in a world of faith and congruence.  You are living in a world where you trust nothing at all.

~Carolyn Myss

*

 

So it is better to take time to consider everything before you make a decision and then stick with what you have decided. Knowing that it was and is the best choice for you after careful consideration.

Being in alignment with what you want.

If you are wishy-washy and go back and forth on decisions, you have divided energy that keeps you flowing back and forth getting nowhere.

That is when you feel fragmented and miss aligned.

So make your decision and stick with it.

Enjoying your life every day…

All change is…

All change is…

“All change is change for the better. There is no such thing as “change for the worse.”

Change is the process of Life Itself, and that process could be called by the name “evolution.” And evolution moves in only one direction: forward, and toward improvement.

Therefore, when change visits your life, you can be sure things are turning for the better.

It may not look that way in the very moment change arrives, but if you will wait a while and have faith in the process, you will see that this is true.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

Today’s to do list…

Today’s to do list…

  1. Practice kindness
  2. Let go of what I can’t control
  3. Count my blessings
  4. Listen to my Higher Self
  5. Install calmness around me
  6. Share my light with others
  7. Pass this on to encourage someone else.

 

*

 

This is an inspirational list of things to aspire to

today

  and

every day.

Just start at the top and think about the first thing on the list.

 

     1. Practice kindness.

It takes practice to be kind in every situation.

It is much easier to just walk away from things that strike you in an opposing way or

people who are reacting with anger or being mean to you.

The kinder you are, the more kindness you will attract to your own life.

 

     2. Let go of what I can’t control

Let go of all of those things that aren’t under your control.

Don’t worry or fret about those things.

Just let them be and go on living your life of peace and joy.

 

     3. Count my blessings

We all have so many blessings every day.

If you take time to look for them and acknowledge them they will continue to grow.

 

      4. Listen to my Higher Self

Your inner being is your higher self.

When you are able to hear your inner being and listen to the truth of what it says to you, things become clear in your life.  You need to learn to trust it and listen to it always.

 

     5. Install calmness around me

Look for ways to install and allow calmness around you in all ways.

Take time to find things that calm your mind and bring you peace.

Whether it be soft relaxing music, things you can read, or pictures that bring you a feeling of peace and harmony.

Turn off the TV and just take a walk in nature, enjoying what you find along your path.

If you can’t go outside, maybe you can find a fountain to turn on that has a relaxing sound of water flowing gently from it.

 

     6. Share my light with others

Once you get it all together and find the light within, you need to share it with others.

Don’t be shy about being the light in someone else’s life.

They may really need to see you shine so that it can ignite their own light and encourage them to be their best enlightened self, following your lead.

 

     7. Pass this on to encourage someone else.

This is a great list to pass on to someone else.

It may be just the thing that pulls it all together for them and helps them get their life together.

Be the motivator for yourself first,

and then share it with someone else.

 

Make your life the BEST it can be…

Reach the place…

Reach the place…

 

We would like you to reach the place

where you’re not willing to listen to

people criticize one another…where you

take no satisfaction from somebody

being wrong…where it matters to you so

much that you feel good, that you are

only willing to think positive things

about people…you are only willing to 

look for positive aspects; you are only

willing to look for solutions, and you are

not willing to beat the drum of all of the 

problems of the world.

~Abraham-Hicks

 

*

Keep thinking positive thoughts and dwelling on how good life is.

Don’t be willing to give up your good vibration by thinking and talking about the things that are effecting other people.

Make your story that of good things that keep getting better and better.

 

It’s your life and your

choices.

Make it the best life it can be…

Courage…


Courage…

is the ability to have faith,

persistence, and strength in

the face of fear, pain, and stress.

Have faith today.  Just because.

Keep persisting toward your dreams.

Just because.

Be strong even when you have all

the reason in the world to be small.

Do this, just because we need you.

The world needs more people with

a courageous heart.

 

~Brendon Buchard,

Author of Life’s Golden Ticket

*

Keep up the good work of being positive and allowing yourself to grow and expand.

Being courageous and knowing that life is suppose to be good.

It is meant to be fun and enjoyable.

 

It takes courage to face the day if you don’t know who you are and what you are truly capable of.

So face your fears and allow your life to be great.

 

Think about great things and your life will show more great things.

Relax and be easy about life.

Have a courageous heart and keep going.

 

Living the life of your dreams and deepest desires.

 

The world needs more people like you..

Just because…

You lift people up by your high standard of believing 

and knowing

and living

every day…

Expecting everything to flow together and be wonderful…

because you are a courageous and beautiful person, full of love and compassion.

Be excited…

Be excited…

 

Stop being

afraid of

what could

go wrong

and start

being

excited

about what

could go

right.

We all have 24 hours each day.

When we spend our time thinking about things that we think can’t happen, or won’t happen, or what we don’t want to happen, we are actually asking for more of that to show up tomorrow.

When we are afraid, we are in a negative state of emotion.

If we spend a lot of time being afraid and in a negative state, we are asking for more of the same.

 

If we can realize that what we think about expands, we then change our thinking and start dwelling on the things that we do want to expand.

  • Things that we can be thankful for.
  • Things that we can be grateful for.
  • Things that we are happy about.
  • Things that we love.
  • Things that we want.
  • Possibilities.

 

We leave the negative, fear based things behind and continue to dwell on the things we can be

EXCITED about so that more of it comes into our life…

 

Get excited and live life to the fullest today!

Love is my gift…

Love is my gift…

           LOVE 

is my gift to the world.  I

fill myself with love, and

I send that love out into

the world.  How others treat

me is their path;  how I 

react is mine,

~Dr Wayne Dyer

 

*

You really can’t do much about how other people react to you.

Because it all depends on what kind of a day they are having.

Whether they have a headache, toothache, or something else bothering them like a sliver in their finger or a painful cut on their foot.

 

If they are having an exceptionally good day, they will likely smile and agree with what ever you have to say.

 

If they are having an exceptionally bad day, however, they are likely to disagree with what ever you have to say.

And may even react in a negative way, arguing with you no matter what the subject is about.

 

So it’s up to you to decide whether it is more important to try to win an argument or whether it is better to just show

the love that radiates from inside you.

 

The way you react is your business.

The way they react is theirs.

 

Do your best to live the kind of life you want to have.

Being pro-active rather than reactive.

Being as patient and loving as you can be.

Feeling the patience you have practiced show you the way and eventually you will be at such a high vibration that you will begin to side step those people who vehemently want to disagree with you.

For some reason they just stop showing up in your life.

  • They stop calling you.
  • They stop texting you.
  • They take a different buss.
  • They go to work a different way.
  • They move out of the area.
  • They come down with a case of laryngitis.

Because they are looking for a fight.  Some type of Disagreement.

And you are looking for agreement.

The two different vibrations are complete opposite and therefore oppose each other.

If you keep practicing the art of LOVE and keep filling yourself and sending out LOVE, the more LOVE and loving people will show up in your life.

You can actually change the friends and family you have until your life becomes the best it can be.

 

It does take dedication and ongoing practice though.

It may not happen immediately, but it does have to happen eventually because you attract what you are – like a magnet.

If you are not getting what you want, then it’s time to reevaluate your own inner thoughts and beliefs so that you can line up with what you really do want.

Paying attention to your highest desires.

 

Letting LOVE be your gift to the world.

Rules For My Daughter…

Rules For My Daughter:

1. Don’t knock it ’til you try it.
2. Send Thank You cards for every act of hospitality – except another Thank You card.
3. Travel light through life. Keep only what you need.
4. Put cinnamon in your coffee, and twice as much when you miss me.
5. It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.
6. If you’re going to curse, be clever. If you’re going to curse in public, know your audience.
7. Seek out the people and places that resonate with your soul.
8. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
9. 5-second rule. It’s just dirt.
10. Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.
11. If you’re staying more than one night, unpack your bag.
12. Never walk through an alley.
13. Be less sugar, more spice, and only as nice as you’re able to without compromising yourself.
14. Can’t is a cop-out. Don’t want to is perfectly acceptable.
15. Hold your heroes to a high standard. Be your own hero.
16. If you can’t smile with your eyes, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.

19. If you have an opinion, you better know why.
20. Study your curiosities and practice your passions.
21. Ask for what you want.
22. Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work.
23. Don’t skimp on good sheets.
24. Fall in love often. Particularly with ideas, art, music, literature, food, far-off places and four-leggeds.
25. Fall hard and forever in love with nothing but yourself.
26. Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.
27. Reserve I’m sorry for when you truly are.
28. Naps are for grown-ups, too.
29. Question everything except your own intuition.
30. You have enough. You are enough.
31. You are amazing! Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you are not. If someone does… walk away. You deserve better.
