When a penguin falls in love…

Did you know?

When a penguin falls in love…

 

When a penguin falls in love with a female

penguin, he searches the entire beach to find

the perfect pebble to present to her.  And when

he finally finds it, he waddles over to her and

places the pebble right in front of her.  Kind of

like a proposal.

If only human men would put half of this amount of effort into courting and pleasing a woman – they might be surprised how many points they would wrack up in the romance department.

Of coarse flowers would be nice too…

You are enough…

You are enough…

It’s easy to feel uncared for when people aren’t able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it’s so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your worth. But the truth is that the way other people operate is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they’re doing doesn’t even cross their mind. They aren’t inherently bad or uncaring they’re just busy and self-focused.

And that’s okay. It’s not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn’t make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren’t very good at looking beyond their own world. But the fact that you are that despite the darkness you feel, you have the ability to share your love and light with others is a strength. Your work isn’t to change who you are, it’s to find people who are able to give you the connection you need. Because despite what you feel, you are not too much. You are not too sensitive or too needy. You are thoughtful and empathetic. You are compassionate and kind. And with or without anyone’s acknowledgment or affection, you are enough.

When I was little…

When I was little…

 

When I was little, I picked up a

flower and put it in a vase.

After a few days, it died.

I asked my mom why, and she

said: “You can’t force a flower

to thrive somewhere it doesn’t

belong.”

And now I realize that 

people are like that, too.

~Sun-gazing.com

People thrive

where they are well loved and cared for,

just like plants and animals.

If you mistreat a plant like picking a beautiful flower, you lesson it’s life cycle greatly.

 

Everyone picks flowers, and while the base plant still flourishes,

the flower itself begins to die at that very moment.

 

Of coarse you can immediately put the flower in water,

and add supplemental plant food to help it sustain life,

but picking it from the mother plant lessens it ‘s life span no matter what you do.

 

And so is the life of a person or animal.

If you take them away from the love and support they need

to survive and thrive, you are taking away their life support.

 

This happens often when a couple gets married early in life

and is taken away from the family to go far away and build their own life.

 

They find themselves away from the help and support they need

and often end up giving up and separating because life is just too hard.

 

Not that they don’t love each other, but as you know, reality is a lot different

than the illusion of “I will love you forever, for better or for worse”

 

No wonder people are changing their vows more towards “when the money is gone – so am I…”

Or “let’s just see how this goes…”  “I really need a housekeeper…”

Or no vows at all because there is NO commitment at all.

 

Very few couples survive the hardships of life and actually have each other’s backs as they promise.

Saying the words are so different than doing the action needed to keep a love alive

through the tough stages of life.

 

You can’t force anything to thrive somewhere it doesn’t belong.

And no one can survive and flourish without ongoing LOVE.

They just shrivel up and die

like the clipped off flower.

 

So give yourself and your loved ones the best possible life

by being honest with them and finding the ways to actually

love and support yourself

before trying to take on someone else.

 

Make sure you both belong together

and have enough in common to forge through the tough times

and actually survive and thrive together as a team.

Eventually…

Eventually…

 

 


all the pieces

fall into place,

until then,

laugh at the confusion,

live for the moment and

know that everything

happens for a reason

~Carrie Bradshaw

Life is a journey.

 

It is a process of growth and learning.

 

Let yourself be free

and grow at your own pace.

 

Laughing at your mistakes because

mistakes are a part of learning.

 

Live for the moment and know that

everything happens for a reason.

Damaged people…

Damaged people…

 

 

 

When you naturally have a healing

aura, you attract a lot of damaged

people, and having them I your life

could drain your energy to the max.  A

reminder that it’s not your job to heal

everyone that you encounter. You

can’t pour from an empty cup.  Take

care of yourself first.

~Christopher Walken

 

*

 

 

 

It is really important TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

 

Many times people who are empathetic, or some type of healers,

don’t think of themselves as needing care until they get sick and crash.

 

It is so important to them to take care of everyone else in their life,

that they don’t think about themselves needing help in any way.

 

When they find themselves totally drained in energy and health,

they learn the hard way that they too are human

and in need of

love and care.

 

Life is about balance.

 

Be sure to take care of yourself

before trying to give

from an empty cup.

 

It is not your job

to heal everyone.

 

HONESTLY…

We do

all have

our

own

choices

Anyway…

Forgive them anyway…

“People are often unreasonable and self-
centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of
ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be
happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten
tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may
never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and
God. It was never between you and them
anyway.”
~Mother Teresa

When someone hurts you in any way,

you are focused on that person and what they did.

You spend your time thinking and re thinking

about the hurt and what happened.

Maybe even taking time to think about what they said

and what they really meant and what it felt like to them.

 

Even if it was just them being self-centered and unreasonable.

But the more you stay in that hurtful feeling and re living the hurt,

the longer you promote the situation as a “hurtful” experience.

If you can possibly “forgive” them and move on,

you will be free from whatever they did.

You probably won’t want to totally forget what happened,

but forgiveness=freedom for you.

 

If you are a kind person, people may misunderstand you

and think that you are just faking it for some reason.

Don’t worry about what others think

because they are coming from their own perspective, not yours.

It’s up to you to decide how kind you want to be

and if you want to keep practicing kindness for your own

self realization and growth.

 

If you are honest, people may

take advantage of you and cheat you.

Again, that is their bad if they rip you off in some way.

 

It may not feel good to you, but if you can just learn from the experience

and realize that not everyone has your best interest at heart,

you can become more aware and not let the same thing happen again.

 

Don’t worry, and you don’t have to get even either.

That is what KARMA is about.

Sooner or later they will be presented with the same thing they did to you.

Just be honest, anyway.

You will feel so much better and your path will attract more people like you in the future.

 

If you find happiness, people may be jealous of you.

Just be an example and let them have something to aspire to.

You never know how much you will effect them just by showing

that happiness is possible in a broken world.

 

Do your best to live your life

being thankful and grateful every day.

 

It is between you,

yourself, and God,

so don’t worry about what others think.

 

They have their own life to live,

not yours.

Each moment is perfect…

Each moment is perfect…

 

I am often misunderstood

when I say that each moment is perfect.

And that everything is perfect.

People are afraid of seeing perfection in a situation that is not of their liking,

thinking that seeing perfection means not changing it.

To me, seeing perfection does not mean keeping the situation static.

It means seeing perfection in exactly where you are in your journey right now,

no matter where that may be.

Seeing perfection in the moment,

wherever in the journey that moment might be.

That is seeing perfection.

~Anita Moorjani

 

Remember, I said that the universe is only a reflection of me.

If I am frustrated with the way life is working for me,

it is futile to change the external elements

without looking at what’s going on internally.

 

A lot of us are very negative towards ourselves.

We are our own worst enemies.

 

The first thing I would say is to stop judging yourself

and stop beating yourself up for where you are in your life right now.

 

If I am finding that I am constantly frustrated with people, and judging them,

it is because that is how I am internally treating myself all the time.

 

I am only expressing outward my own inner dialogue to myself.

The more I love myself unconditionally,

the easier it is for me to see beauty in this world,

and beauty in others.

~Anita Moorjani

Wonderful, inspiring words from Anita Moorjani.

If you follow the path of least resistance

and enjoy every part of your day by living in the moment,

your life will be both inwardly and outwardly rewarding.

 

If you are finding a lot of things to criticize,

maybe you should take a moment to reflect

on our current inner thoughts and adjust them accordingly.

 

Change your thinking by distracting yourself with something GOOD.

  • Think about anything that makes you happy.
  • Do anything that brings you joy.
  • Anything that is uplifting. (music, flowers, essential oils)
  • Read a positive book.
  • Drink a refreshing beverage.

 

Life is what you make it.

If you want a better life, you have to change negative things into positive things.

This may be a small, one step at a time process,

but it is a worthy process none the less.

 

Live your best life today, and every day,

because each moment is perfect.

Raise your standards…

Raise your standards…

 

Raise your standards. Raise

your expectations. Raise your

minimums of what you will

allow into your life that does

not honor or respect you.

Be bold, push the boundaries,

and you will be rewarded.

~Brendon Burchard

 

 

Today’s Message – Raise your standards! Keep them high! When we have higher standards for ourselves, we help bring them up for others. It’s amazing the affect we can have on those around us, simply by example.

~Healing Light

 

 

*

 

When you raise your standards, others just fall away.

 

Those who choose to live at a lower vibration

just don’t jell with those who live in a higher standard or vibration.

 

If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

 

Those who have a lot of problems

and continuously replay them – get more problems to replay.

It’s called the law of attraction.

You get more of what ever it is that you think about.

 

The more you keep your problem alive the more it will grow and attract more momentum.

 

Honor and respect yourself and others,

and you will attract those who

honor and respect you.

 

Live your best life by being the best you can be.

 

Be bold

and you will be rewarded for it.

Turn to the sun…

Turn to the sun…

 

One day, she realized

that while she couldn’t

always stop the rain

from falling in life,

she could choose

to turn her face to the

sun and be grateful for

the blessings within

each and every day.
