To be strong…

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel pain. In reality, the strongest people are the ones who feel it, understand it, and accept it. ~

S

The serenity prayer…

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. ~Reinhold Niebuhr

*

Reading the serenity prayer always gives me a few things to think about.

If we could just keep these three things in the for front of our minds and follow them completely, we would be a lot less stressed.

Trusting in God takes a lot of pressure off of our every day decisions.

Many times we give something to God, and then take it back to resolve our own way.

And that just doesn’t really work.

It is human nature, however.

So trust in the wisdom to know the difference and practice it until you are able to trust, do what you can, and let the rest go.

Life is all this…

Life is a gift, I accept it.

Life is a adventure, I dare it.

Life is a mystery, I’m unfolding it.

Life is a puzzle, I’m solving it.

Life is a game, I play it.

Life can be a struggle, I’m facing it.

Life is beauty, I praise it.

Life is an opportunity, I took it.

Life is my mission, I’m fulfilling it.

If you complain…

If you complain…

 

“See if you can catch yourself

complaining in either speech or

thought, about a situation you find

yourself in, what other people do or

say, your surroundings, your life

situation, even the weather.  To

complain is always nonacceptance of

what is.  It invariably carries an

unconscious negative charge.  When

you complain, you make yourself a

victim.  Leave the situation or accept it.

All else is madness.”

~Eckhart Tolle

Complaining becomes a bad habit.

Try to stop yourself from complaining

for just one day and see how hard it is.

 

If you are in the habit of complaining,

you may begin to notice how often

complaints come out of your mouth or are in your thoughts.

 

When you complain, you are

actually putting yourself in a negative state

as if you are a victim in the situation.

 

If you want to improve your life

and stop being a victim,

you have to change your thoughts and words

until you STOP complaining and

start appreciating things.

Taking responsibility…

Taking responsibility …

 

If a person doesn’t

want t0 take responsibility

for the consequences of their actions, they

may try to blame others.  Don’t accept blame or

try to fix things for them when you’ve done

nothing wrong.  They need to learn that if they

want different outcomes, they will have

to make different choices.

~Doe Zantamata

 

 

Blame is one of the most used

escape tactics for people who don’t want

to take responsibility for their actions.

 

They say:

  • It’s not their fault.
  • Someone else MADE them do it.
  • It’s all your fault, not theirs.
  • They were provoked or pressured into it.
  • The devil made them do it.

 

And then they make you feel sorry for them

so that you will “FIX” things for them.

Using your time, money and effort

while they just play dumb and blame you

or someone else for their mess up.

 

Make the best choices you can,

and let others make

their own choices.

 

Don’t blame others for your shortcomings or mistakes,

and don’t let others blame you

when something happens that is not your fault.

 

Live your

best life

every day.

We let go of people…

We let go of people…

Sometimes, we let go of people

without even noticing.
You stop thinking about them everyday.
You stop waiting for them to reply to you.
You stop allowing them to take so much space

in your life.
You move on.
You go about your day without worrying

about them.
You stop expecting them to come back with

an apology.
You accept that they are no longer part of

your life.
You just let them go,

as simple as that.

it any more.

The more you think about someone

or something, the more you activate it in your life.

 

The trick to letting someone or something go from your life

is to NOT think about it or them any more.

And this may be extremely difficult because

the more you try to NOT think about something,

the more things come to your mind regarding that subject.

 

So the best thing to do is to just stop worrying about it.

 

Give yourself plenty of time to overcome this challenge.

Memories and life lessons occur over a period of time

so don’t expect yourself to erase all of those things immediately.

 

The best thing to do is to be patient with yourself.

Find ways to REPLACE those old memories with new ones.

Replace that old person with a new one.

Add in more friends, more new experiences, more new memories.

After a while you will have so many new things to think about

that the old memories begin to fade away.

 

And your active part of this process is to let them fade away.

 

Don’t keep going over the old past stuff, reactivating it

in your mind and conversation

if you really want to let it go.

 

Another thing to work on is changing your thoughts about the past situation

from a negative place to a neutral place of being.

 

Instead of going over and over the negative details, just neutralize them into better feeling thoughts.

Remembering that everyone is human and prone to mistakes.

Everyone reacts according to their own inner thoughts, not yours.

Everyone has regrets and wishes to be better understood.

 

And if nothing else works for you,

you may just have to say to yourself;

  • “OH WELL”
  • “Whatever”
  • “It is what it is”
  • “That was then, this is now”

and just keep going.

 

Make your life the life you want to live.

 

Let others live their life too,

and if they don’t want to be a healthy, positive part of your life,

move on

That’s all you can do.

Let them fade away…

It is as simple as that.

Satisfied where you are…

Satisfied where you are…


You can be fully satisfied with where you are,

understanding that you’re eternally evolving.

when you get into that place of feeling

appreciation of where you are and of who you

are, and appreciation of what you are, and you 

accept that you are a never-ending, always

unfolding Being, then you can stand in that 

delicate balance of being optimistic about what

is to come, without being unhappy about

where you stand.  Find a way of eagerly

anticipating future changes, while at the same 

time you are in love and satisfied with who,

what, where and how you be.

~Abraham-Hicks

I love the feeling of appreciation and allowing.

 

There is nothing better than feeling the sensation

of being SATISFIED.

 

Like when you have just eaten a healthy, fantastic meal of your choosing.

Like that first hot cup of delicious coffee in the morning,

flavored with your favorite creamer.

 

Or seeing that special someone smile at you from across the room,

knowing that soon you would be close together,

sharing your thoughts of joyous living.

 

Or buying yourself flowers and smelling their pungent fragrance

while admiring their luminous beauty.

 

In other words, finding something to appreciate now in this very moment.

 

And the more you practice staying in the NOW,

present moment, the easier it will be to maintain

the satisfaction you seek and the

satisfaction you were born to live.

Allowing people in …

Allowing…

Allowing people inside your life is a beautiful thing.

Letting go of people who drain your spirit is another beautiful thing you can do for your life.

The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go.      ~ Dodinsky

 

*

 

The right people really do make a big difference in the quality of life you live.

Have you ever felt like you were going around and around in circles – never really finding your true north? Your straight path to fulfill your purpose in life…

It could be that the people surrounding you are keeping you in an endless loop for their own benefit – not yours. Draining your spirit more every day.

If you find your own path – you might not need them anymore.  You may be strong enough to follow your own path that leads you away from them and their personal agenda.

And then you have the choice of letting in new people.  People who have your best interests in mind.

Allowing them into your personal space where they are beautiful additions to you and your growth because they have your back – instead of stabbing you in it.

The choice is yours…

Use your power and allow good people in your life to surround you and support you today.

Set boundaries…

Set boundaries…

Love yourself enough to set

boundaries.  Your time and energy

are precious.  You get to choose

how to use it.  You teach people

how to treat you by deciding what

you will and won’t accept .

 

*

This may be hard to believe when you first read it, but after careful consideration, you can see how true it really is.

If you don’t have boundaries and continue to set new boundaries from time to time, you will find people just running all over you and intruding into your personal time and energy.

Your life may become convenient to others for such things as regular babysitting, running errands, and picking up groceries for them.

You may also be counted on for regular or occasional financial support, by means of making you feel guilty from someone who has less than you, or even by a relative who doesn’t want to support him/her self.

Some people have no conscious when it comes to asking for help.  They just take the easy way out.

If you don’t have strong boundaries established, you may find yourself as their favorite target.

Giving more of your own time, money, and effort than you had planned, cutting your own self or family short.

In fact, you may come to the place where you feel used and taken advantage of before you get serious about setting boundaries, or realize that you are being counted on more than you like.

So when you do come to the point of realization, you can start by setting a limit on the amount of time, money and effort you are giving out.  You can either cut these things out abruptly or gradually lessen your continued support to “others”.

It may be hard to say “NO” at first, but the more you practice it, the easier it becomes, especially when you start finding the rewards of having more time, more money, and more energy for yourself and your family.

Love yourself enough to set boundaries.  You get to choose…
