Be the person…

Be the person who breaks the cycle.
If you were judged, choose understanding. If you were rejected, choose acceptance. If you were shamed, choose compassion. Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. Vow to be better than what broke you – to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain. ~StrongMind

It is always a good idea to improve yourself. Breaking old patterns of abuse and uncaring shows a real desire for healthy living.

Fighting back against hate means finding more love and replacing hateful things with loving things.

The easier you can forgive the sooner you can be free of the painful past.

That doesn’t mean that you will forget the things that were done, but it does mean that you choose to take a different path. One of a higher vibration and mindful effort.

Choose LOVE instead of other options and change the old patterns of hate and unacceptance to those of understanding and unconditional acceptance.

Cleansing prayer…

Cleansing prayer…

 

I cleanse myself of all

selfishness, resentment,

critical feelings for my fellow

beings, self-condemnation,

and misinterpretation  of my

life experiences.

I bathe myself in generosity,

appreciation, praise and

gratitude for my fellow

beings, self acceptance, and

enlightened understanding of

my life experiences.

Do your part…

Do your part…


She felt like doing her part to change the

world, so she started by giving thanks for all the blessings in her life, rather than

bemoaning all that was missing from it.

Then she complimented her reflection in the mirror,

instead of criticizing it as she usually did.

Next she walked into her neighborhood and offered her smile to everyone she passed,

whether or not they offered theirs to her.

Each day she did these things, and soon they became a habit.  Each day she lived with more gratitude, more acceptance, more kindness.

And sure enough, the world around her began to change.  Because she had decided so, she was single-handedly doing her part to change it.

~Scott Stabile

Sometimes we are just not where we want to be in life or not where we think we should be. Whether it is because of our age, or our advanced education, or station in life, it becomes easier to complain about all the things that are going wrong instead of what is going right.

And honestly, if that is what you are doing, you will keep getting more to complain about.

If you realize that you are a complainer – you can change yourself. In fact, you have to change what you are thinking about and speaking about in order to change the outcomes you are experiencing.

We are trained from a young age to seek out people who resonate with us.  Some one who understands us and what we are going through.  A soul mate – or a life partner. And while it is good to have people who seemingly understand you, if you are determined to live a life of complaint, you will keep getting more to complain about.

Things will never get better until you can be thankful and grateful for what you have right now,

changing your perspective to that of appreciation.  There is always something to  appreciate.

 

If you are breathing (and I assume you are) you can start there.  Many have difficulty even breathing.

What else can you appreciate?

Do you have:

  • children
  • clothes to wear
  • food
  • something to eat with
  • something to drink
  • a car to drive
  • a drivers license
  • friends
  • a house to live in
  • shoes
  • a phone
  • a computer
  • pets
  • television
  • music
  • a bed
  • blankets
  • etc.

If you start being thankful and grateful for what you have, more will come.  It may take a while to change your habits to positive ones, but if you really do want a better outcome in life, you have to put the effort into having an attitude of appreciation instead of complaint.

There is no way around it.

You get what you think about in life.

 

So if you want to do your part in changing the world,

start with a smile and see where that SMILE

can take you…

Honor your feelings…

Honor your feelings…

 

Nothing destroys self-worth, self-acceptance and self-love faster than denying what you feel.

Without feelings, you would not know where you are in life.

Nor would you know what areas you need to work on.

Honor your feelings.

Allow yourself to feel them.

—Iyanla Vanzant

If you have trouble being yourself, or expressing your feelings, it may be that you have been conditioned by society or family.

It is the most authentic form of humanity to be expressive emotionally.

Humans are emotional.

Feelings abound in every form of humanity.

From babies who express themselves openly and honestly, to the elderly who have learned how and when to show certain emotions appropriately .  Maybe too appropriate, in fact. Maybe too guarded and socially accepted.

So guarded and appropriate that they have cut themselves off from their true feelings.

 

Honor your feelings, and feel them.

Express yourself openly to increase your

self-worth, self-acceptance and self-love…

It is never wrong to Love.

It is never wrong to Love. Circumstances may mean something or someone is not meant for us but the feeling, the actual Love, is always right, and always meant. We are here to Love. We are Love. So the more we Love, the more we remember our reason for being and the truth of all of Life.  to-love

Even if loving and giving your love to some one has left you feeling less than loved, you are still capable of great love now and in the future.  Every failed relationship can be a part of our education.  How ever painful at times, the after glow leaves us a little wiser than if we had never loved at all.  Just don’t let a failed love life make you bitter.  Bitterness will steal your joy and cloud your future if you don’t take care of it  and learn from it.  We all wish we could “do over” a few things, maybe take back a few words spoken in anger or change the outcome of a misunderstanding or two.  But the truth is – we can’t.  You just can’t go back.

Oh it’s a great idea if you can patch things up with someone.  One who is able and willing to forgive and forget.  One who is wanting the same thing you do, peace and harmony. Love and trust. Respect.

But generally, people who make a habit of misunderstanding you are on a different mission.   For you to think that they care about you just because you care about them, will leave you crying every time.  I’ve learned this the hard way.  Since I have so much to offer someone else, I tend to wear rose colored glasses when it comes to affairs of the heart.  Always wishing and hoping – giving and loving… one more time…

But sadly it turns out the same way with me being a little bit older and wiser.  Pulling everything back together and starting over.  I take time to reflect and hopefully grow to where I know more of what I do want by being aware of what I don’t  want.

Going through the stages of grief:

  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Bargaining
  • Depression
  • Acceptance

After acceptance, I know that I am still a very loving person and although I thought my choice was a good one at the time, I realize that it was just another lesson on my path to finding a deeper understanding and learning to LOVE myself at the level where someone else will also love me and not want to hurt me.

Life is a process…  It’s still good to LOVE no matter what the outcome may be.  I just keep finding more things to love and appreciate every day.  I’m determined to keep becoming a better person who is happy and fulfilled no matter what anyone else is doing.  That is my path.  That is my mission in life.  Sometimes I have to actually look deep for the good in a day, but the more I practice finding good the easier it becomes.

  • The more good people I have around me.
  • The more good times I have.
  • The more money I receive.
  • The better I feel…

AND – The better it gets…

You are valuable and worthy of Love…

You are valuable and worthy of Love…

Sometimes people just won’t love you the way you want them to.  It does not mean there is something within you to fix.  You are valuable and worthy of Love.  The only next step is acceptance and movement toward those who love you freely.
love perspective
A lot of times people blame themselves because they don’t feel loved the way they want to by their significant other.  It may not even be their fault at all.

Although we are responsible to love ourselves and others, we are not responsible for those others who just can’t seem to be able to love us.  Some people are just too broken.  They try to love but just end up being sarcastic or unable to communicate the way they should.  People have so many scars and wounds by the time they get older.

If they haven’t learned, or been able to forgive and forget their past relationship issues, they are just the walking wounded waiting to pounce on an innocent victim.

They may appear to be normal and happy, but just wait until something goes wrong and they are not in complete control.  That is how you find out what people are really made of.  See how they handle stress, and problem situations.  It doesn’t usually take much to push the anger button on these kind of people.  Most of the time you don’t even know you are doing it either. They are often a ticking time bomb waiting for you to get close to, or slightly push that little button that sets them into a flying rage.  Of coarse – it is always your fault though, no matter what — right?

I’ve lived with this for so many years, I have to admit that by my nurturing nature, I actually have attracted this kind of people into my life. They seem to see the “just kick me” sign from a mile away.  Meanwhile, I just keep wondering why people are so angry all the time.  I don’t know why they just can’t be responsible for themselves, and let go of the past.  Or God forbid, admit that they had a little bit to do with the past problems themselves.  That would surly be unthinkable to admit that any part of an issue was their fault, or their instigation.

So if you are involved with someone who just doesn’t get you, or isn’t able to give you love, you are definitely not alone.  The question is – how long are you going to let someone else blame you for their own insecurities and disfunction?

The best thing to do is to admit that they are unable to give you the love you want and look for someone else who can fulfill your needs and desires. Or other ways to fulfill yourself, like practicing your favorite hobbies, or being creative in some way.  That is what the saying means when it says “The only next step is acceptance and movement toward those who love you freely.”

Don’t accept someone else’s short comings by staying in a hurtful situation and feeling unloved.  There are many ways to get positive people and positive vibrations into your life…
