Words of Wisdom 02/13/2018

Good New Day Beautiful Spirits!

This week’s Words of Wisdom is a quote submitted to me and it sure was right on time!

“Live your life without buts!” ~Olivia Smalls

Ms. Smalls’ quote reminds us that we are more than capable of creating and maintaining a life we truly enjoy.

A meaningful life by our own standards if we simply…

Stop making excuses.

Stop hesitating because of this or that.

Stop being afraid of what happens if this time doesn’t work out.

Stop awaiting support and validation from others.

Stop believing we may not be worthy of the life we want.

Re-write your script! Image result for action

Let’s find out what happens when we…

Stop trying and simply take action…DO!

Be open to changing direction midway if necessary; quitting is NOT an option!

Leave past experiences behind us; this time IS different; we’ve grown so much since then.

Be our very own cheerleader!

Trust ourselves to get it done.

We are worthy of beautiful life experiences. Contrary to what “they” say, life is NOT meant to be difficult.

 

As always, sending you great Love, Peace & Blessings…

Only YOU Can Save Yourself

Dearest Beautiful Spirits,

After spending yesterday in bed, searching for a reason to keep trying, I’ve awakened today with reasonS to keep trying.

Here’s the thing, I had to acknowledge that there is something within me that is destructive. It fights all of the good in me, as if it’s trying to prevent its inevitable death once I get the hang of thriving as my authentic self. This destructive (for lack of a better term) part of me is a strong son-of-a-b&tch, fortunately the rest of me is even more powerful.

You see it’s so much easier to blame something outside of yourself when your life doesn’t seem to go as want it to. At this time in my life, there is no one or nothing to blame, yet I still feel as though I am not where I should be.

I’ve even tried to blame it on being an introvert, unfortunately everywhere I look there is a successful introvert thriving because of who they are. I honestly believe as an idealist, dreamer, INFP I often get stuck in the creation phase of things and lose interest shortly thereafter because…monotony of day-to-day business is not appealing to me. Funny thing is, I am definitely at the point in my life where working for someone else, helping to build their dreams is simply NOT AN OPTION! I’ve managed other people’s businesses, it’s past time for me to put my big girl panties on and manage my own business. HUuuuuuuumph! *chuckles*

Bottom line is, I’ve been afraid of following through with my dreams/ideas because lack of support has subliminally taught me I am unworthy of fulfilling my dreams/ideas. Growing up, no one ever saw the splendor in my dreams/ideas and I wasn’t encouraged to pursue them. If the ones who love you don’t seem to believe in you, how can you expect anyone else will?

As the years went by, the twinkle in my eyes along with my fearlessness slowly evaporated and I began waiting for someone to save me (i.e. from the bully in school, the adults who thought it was okay to violate my trust, an abusive spouse…) yet no one ever came to save me.

 

YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU MAY KNOW AT THIS MOMENT; DON’T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF. ITS TIME TO BE YOUR OWN HERO…

be-your-own-hero

Being saved was a deep longing I needed fulfilled but much to my chagrin, it never happened until the Universe told me clearly and with certainty, “You and only you have the power to save yourself. It’s time for you to do so with all that you are; all that I’ve created you to be. You are never alone, I am always here unconditionally loving, protecting and guiding you.”

After such a spiritual awakening, there is no way I could continue waiting for anyone to save me so I made a conscious effort to begin saving myself. I am not perfect nor always happy but my personal power is something that I rely on to keep moving forward instead of allowing myself to give up.

Let me just tell you, my entire being…mind, body, spirit, soul and heart gang up on me if I try to give up; seriously sore throat, chest pains, back pains, headaches, spiritual disconnection etc. The part of me that is not destructive has become so much stronger than the part trying it’s best to shut me down therefore, my only choice is to keep moving forward.

Wishing You Love, Peace & Courage during your personal journey…

Sincerest Thanks

Today, I’d like to give special thanks to all of the people who kept me at arm’s length or stayed away from me completely. The people I allowed to discourage me at some point before now; perhaps each had various reasons but specifically to the ones who saw something so great within me that I was blind to…

I did not understand what you felt about me; could not see what you saw and always wondered what it was about me you just didn’t want to “deal” with. I appreciate you because you made me search until I could see what you saw and now that I have, there is no turning back for me.

It’s quite amazing once you finally re-learn who you were created to be and step into being who you are authentically. I feel no anger, no resentment because every experience has been a lesson to build upon.

My thank you is sincere and sent to you with love and wishes of great peace along your personal journey. During my journey I’ve taken painful detours, but I’ve also had many beautiful moments and I’m grateful for each because it’s all brought me back to myself.

Love, Peace & Blessings…

Emotional Healing

Recently I was able to achieve closure with someone who has always had a strong hold on me. With her I’ve always felt as though I was cheated out of the love I know I am worthy of; support and encouragement I’ve always longed for. I’ve always wondered how I could be who I am yet she is who she is; my polar opposite.

When I think of how much time I wasted seeking validation from this person and believing I was never enough, I am disappointed with myself. When I think of always (before now) being afraid to be my authentic self because it meant being extremely different from her, I am disappointed with myself. When I think of how her low self-esteem and almost non-existent self-worth adversely affected me and made me feel the same about myself, I am disappointed with myself.

As disappointed as I am with myself, I realize that I was not equipped to identify what I’ve just shared before now so how can I blame myself? I should have never considered anyone else’s thoughts or actions as part of my own. I’ve always been independent and a leader therefore no one should have been allowed to make me feel less than worthy; less than whole. I am responsible for my life same as you and how dare we allow anyone else to dictate how we should feel or what we should do.

emotional Healing

I don’t blame this person and now I am able to accept her for who she is; not good, bad or indifferent but someone who loves me as best as she can. Sometimes you have to just KNOW and accept what is and leave the rest alone. I now understand that people can only love us as best as they can; not as we love them or expect them to love us but as they are able to love us.

A wise woman recently said to me, “You have power; never let anyone take that away from you. You are a fool to let that happen!” Her profound wisdom has enabled me to find my way again and as she advised, I will never give my personal power away ever again; not ever. If you feel like you are not empowered, I implore you to take steps to reclaim your power and to never give it away again. You are not alone; I will walk beside you offering encouragement, love, acceptance and non-judgment.

I am authentically…SereneNSassySoul.

Love, Peace & Blessings…
