Yesterday was filled with emotional turbulence, therefore I’m sharing my encounter with the baby frog today simply to show you just how wonderful the Universe truly is. When you ask for help (or in my case something to inspire me), it will be delivered to you (albeit not always in a way you would like for it to appear).
Pain felt so deeply it make your heart stop briefly, your head pound angrily
Love felt so deeply warming your entire being, briefly taking your breath away
Disappointment you feel when someone you love experiences turmoil and there’s nothing you can do to make it stop; one of the worse things you can ever experience…helplessness
People around have no idea what you are processing inside, most don’t care; it’s not as if they can resolve your worries anyway…
Tears refuse to fall; spirit refuses to accept defeat
Something inside of you is fighting the darkness trying to take over; your will is stronger than anything that comes up against it
You can feel this happening inside of you; there are no words to describe it
The internal war is making you stronger and things that angered or saddened you melt away…
After a while your guides help you understand and know what your spirit, heart knows…you are just fine
You smile at this feeling a sense of inner peace spreading within you calming your entire being
In this moment you realize the one you love will be just fine in time; at their own pace and in their own time
Rain begins to fall, you release the chaos allowing yourself to breathe freely once again; rain is always soothing and cleansing
After a while the Sun joins you in the first new moments of the rest of your life…
You can’t look back even if you wanted to; forward progress is the only way
Inhale, Exhale…Inhale, Exhale…Inhale, Exhale…
Things people say and what they sometimes actually mean, albeit most times unintentionally…
Be strong, be courageous, speak your mind, don’t take crap from anyone…just don’t be this way with me.
Learn to say no and always put your needs first…just don’t be this way with me.
Be all you can be, never stop chasing your dreams…just don’t surpass where I am in my life.
I love and accept you just as you are…just maybe change this or that; just as long as you do things MY way.
Always keep it real no matter what…just as long as what you say or do doesn’t make me uncomfortable.
I’ve always got your back…just as long as someone doesn’t offer me a better deal.
Honor yourself always and pay attention to what you feel…just get over it already and deal with it; life is hard!
Sure you should have others friends that share your interests, I’m not jealous…just as long as when I call for you you come running.
I’m not in competition with you at all, you are my friend…just as long as I don’t see a chance to shine and leave you in the dust!
You are free to do as you please, live your life…just as long as you allow me to control the parts I want to.
There’s no way you can actually make that work…I live my life full of fear, how dare you be brave trying to achieve your goals.
I remember spending so much time seeking approval from various people in my life, yet wondering why it seemed as though I needed to constantly prove myself to have their love. I lost so much of myself at one point, looking in the mirror staring at a stranger. Always trying to please those whose approval I wanted, thought I needed. Always trying to be the obedient and loyal daughter, employee, girlfriend/wife…
Although I’ve always walked to the beat of my own drum, I craved acceptance from people I loved; at the very least for them to love and accept me same as I felt for them. I realize they all loved me as best as they could. People often don’t realize how their words/actions may adversely affect someone whether intentional or not. Replacing judgement and/or a need to control with mindfulness when connecting with others will go a long way with improving communication within any relationship.
Approval of anyone outside of yourself should never be necessary for your to make your own choices. Honor yourself always by trusting what you feel about a situation/person and make your choice based on this not what someone else may think; no matter who the person is. You are NOT your mother or father, sister or brother… therefore you are not required to make the decisions they would make.
I always hear the term “follow your heart”… it’s usually spoken by people who are successful in their chosen profession, relationships, spiritual, personal self etc. and it used to aggravate me until now…
Now, at this very moment I understand the benefits of following your heart. Your heart is your truest, highest self. It’s the part of you that you’ve pushed away and perhaps buried because of life experienced that were uncomfortable. It’s the part you used to consult before you did anything when you were a child. It’s the part of you that always knows what and who is best for you. It’s your compass and it’s your guru; the part of you that contains all of the answers you need.
My Dear, the answers you seek, the answers you need are only contained within you, never outside of you. Others can offer tidbits, maybe even a starting point for you but you must go deep within to access the answers that will assist with living the life you were created to live.
Today I don’t rely on what others think or any unsolicited advice they may give unless it resonates with me (which for me means it comes from a higher Source). I don’t wait for approval from anyone before I make a decision about MY life. I don’t allow what people say about me affect who I am. The only person that stands in my way or prevents me from doing anything is me… I am the only challenge I face from time to time; even facing myself is becoming easier each day.
***Cheers to honoring yourself and living the life you know you are meant to live.***
Wishing you all great Love, Peace & Blessings…
I’ve been holding this in for a while now and I have to release this pent up frustration.
Can I just yelllllllllll???
Can I just state say how disappointed I am that hotels in Cleveland surrounding the Cleveland Clinic are booked and not making special allowances for Cleveland Clinic patients… during the Republican Convention. Seriously is this what we’ve come to? Political antics take precedence over people who need to be cared for?
I spoke with a sweet woman today caring for her husband who will have surgery July 14th and because of the convention she will have to switch hotels twice during their stay. It’s bad enough her husband’s health requires an invasive procedure to help him heal, to boot he and his wife are forced to stress about hotel accommodations? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$, when did they become more important than people?
Each New Day I find the good in humanity and this world but some moments during each New Day are daunting. This particularly infuriates me; saddens me also because there is nothing I can do about it.
OK, OK back to positive thoughts, feelings and energy sharing (smiles*smiles*smiles).
I leave you with this…take care of yourself, take of those who need you to take care of them (of course without neglecting yourself) and please don’t ever lose your human nature, kindness, compassion and love.
As always, Love, Peace & Blessings…
