Today, decide to be the real you and stop playing small. So many of us do this without realizing it. We don't want to rock the boat or make anyone feel bad because we want to grow and they don't. This is one reason why people are so unhappy and become depressed. Step out from behind your shield and show the world what a great person you are. You cannot help yourself or anyone else if you continue to play it small. Do what makes you happy and if you cannot see a way to make a living doing it right now, start off small. Keep your everyday job, but don't give up on your dream. Continue working on this everyday and before you know it, things will have changed. You will have clients or customers, depending on if you offer a service or product. Stay true to you!
Love is all around us, all we have to do is first love ourselves. In doing so, it becomes easier to love others and so live a happier and healthier life.
Why do we have such a hard time forgiving? Maybe it's because we cannot forgive ourselves. To be able to forgive someone else for doing something to hurt you, you need to be able to forgive you. No one is free from making mistakes in their life, we all have. Yet we hold on to that one error like an anchor around our necks, constantly being reminded of what we did. Today, forgive yourself for All that has passed and let it go. Take 100% responsibility for whatever happened, make no excuses and forgive yourself. It may be difficult at first, but do it. Don't say "I'll try to forgive myself", just do it. Write them down if you must, all your mistakes, and once you have forgiven yourself for all that is on that piece of paper, tear it up and burn it. This will help you to let it go. Then you no longer need to think of these things and you will feel a weight lifted. Do it today, for your health, for your soul and for your life. You will begin to see things differently even be less anxious or angry. We generally get angry at others when they do or say something that upsets us, because we see this in ourselves and we do not like it. So let it go and smile. Leave the negativity behind!
When you commit to Loving yourself, you're saying it's ok to be me. There is only one you and if you try to be something that you are not, then you will have an unhappy and unhealthy life. Let go of the stress of trying to fit in, you will feel so much happier in your life and will attract people and happenings that make you happy too. You cannot go out looking for happiness as it is already in you. All you have to do is sit still, be calm, let go of all thoughts and feel it. If you have a hard time doing this, start by thinking of something that made you very happy, the happiest you have ever been. By bringing this thought to the forefront of your mind, you will begin to attract more happiness. It doesn't matter if you are broke, or lost your job, in a bad relationship or anything that to the outside looks sad. Those things will change once you find your true being. So many of us just try to fit in and become miserable, why? If we are all the same then what need is it to be here. We are all unique and your uniqueness is what makes you you. Stop being like the Jones's and live the life you are meant to live. Not sure what that is, take a step each day to be happy and love your self. No one can make you happy, nothing can make you happy, only You can do that. Dance like nobody's watching! I love that saying.
I read this yesterday and realized I had to share it.
So many people have come and gone in my life, many left without anger or concern and that was fine. However some left because I let them go or I made a mistake and lost their friendship. Well, with that said, I realized after reading the post on the calendar, that I needed to forgive myself. I have been hard on myself and not letting myself grow because I felt I was not worthy. I started thinking about this a while ago, and just let it float away, not wanting to deal with it. Now is the time to step into the darkness and say "it's okay to make mistakes, just learn from it and move on". Putting this in writing has brought so much emotion to the forefront of my mind. It's taking me quite some time to write this, trying to read through my tears. I felt that I was not meant to have success, yet I am already successful. I stopped checking what I didn't have and noticed all the things that I did. It made so much more sense to me to see what I had accomplished. Not everything would be seen as major to anyone else, but they are to me. Seeing past the negative feelings I have been holding on to and hiding behind, I can now forgive myself for hurting others and forgive those who have hurt me. These people have gone on with their lives while I have been stuck in that moment of loss or pain. Today I let it all go, and you know what, it's an amazing feeling. Total freedom from fearing that the more success I have in my life will be wrong. I know to some people this makes no sense, but I had to write this Today, because I know there are people out there who feel like I do. I feel that this will be part of my journey, my mission to help others. Show them that they are worthy of all that they desire & that they do not need to feel bad if they accomplish their dreams. Today I no longer am the fearful person who worries that people will judge me for what I do, what I have or what I know. Today, Love is guiding me and I'm no longer afraid of success or failure as they are no longer my shackles. I have broken free!
Everyday, at any given moment, someone somewhere is helping another person. Many people feel that all they do is help other and want accolades. However, when you help others and expect nothing in return, you receive so much in return. It's a wonderful feeling to help someone when they ask for advice via a reading, or to create a piece of jewelry that has be specially requested. When that person receives what they are looking for, it's a so comforting to feel that I have done my job. I am here to assist others, even when they don't always ask, giving assistance to someone in need and not expecting anything from them, makes me feel happy. We are all able to feel this within, even when it is a business, because we have given a person what they wanted and needed. We all have to make a living and assisting others is a job, but it doesn't feel like work when you love what you do. What I am saying is, no matter what you do, love it and give your all. In the end, you will be happy as well as all those you give assistance to. Don't always look for the 'Thank you', feel good within and that is even better. Some people don't know how to say Thank you, so do it to make yourself feel better. Have a blessed day!
Are you really feeling special? If you do not, then change your thoughts. We are all special, and we All deserve the best. However if you feel that others are better than you and you are not worthy, then you will stay in that negative world. See yourself as special and see all the success in your life. It does t matter if you are not doing well financially right now, these things will change. See yourself beyond the things you have, as having more than others doesn't make you special. Being the wonderful person that you are is what makes you special. When we go through difficult times it makes you stronger. Those who have had all things given to them have no idea how to live without it. If they were to lose everything, it would be harder for them to get through the difficult times of financial loss. Today, see yourself as one with the universe, knowing that you are a special being, living the life you asked for. If this is the case, make the changes necessary to bring all you want to you. Start with changing the thoughts, this is the beginning for all change.
Who do you need to forgive? Today decide how you would like to feel, how would you like to live your life. If you are content with living a bitter, longing, unhappy existence, then that's your choice. Nobody I know would want to live that way, but they do.
Today, Forgive all those who have hurt you. Write their names down on a piece of paper, and if it still hurts when you see their name, then you haven't forgiven them fully. Keep hold of this paper, until you no longer feel upset, angry or disgust when you see their name. Once there is no reaction to the name, cross it off the list. Continue to do this until all the names have been removed. Then write your name on the list and forgive yourself. Forgiveness starts from within, and if you cannot forgive You then you cannot forgive anyone else. To truly forgive others you must start with yourself.
Now go back to the list you've just made and put yourself at the top. Start with You, Forgive You. Then it will be easier to forgive the others. None of us are perfect and we all make mistakes or say things to hurt others now and then. Many times its in the heat of the moment, and can seem unforgivable. Today see that Everything is forgivable. We are not our bodies, our body is a vehicle which transports us through life. Let go of what you or others have done to hurt you. Live a life filled with love and happiness.
Being abundant is so much more than just having lots of money. Living an abundant life is a wonderful thing as you never feel that you are lacking in any area of your life. You feel Loved, You feel Joyful and you always feel that you have enough money. Those of us that constantly think of themselves as not having enough are playing right into the hands of the law of attraction, just as some who feels that they have so much. The Law of Attraction goes both ways, which would you prefer? Stop telling yourself that you are not good enough, or that you are not worthy as this only brings you more of the same. Just for Today, see yourself as abundant in all areas of your life. If you feel that you cannot do that, start small with I am worthy of Love. The more you have these positive thoughts, the easier the feelings of being loved with come to you. And with those feelings, the love that you want will appear. Thought, Feelings, Action - these are all a part of the kW of attraction, not just one, they must all work together as One, to bring what you wish to see to fruition. Believe this with all your deepest feelings and soon living as an abundant being will be your life.
Choose your thoughts and feelings wisely.
Being you can me difficult sometimes as people may not understand you. They don't understand why you do the things you do, or say the things you say, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't of stop being you. The people who do not understand you will eventually leave your life or just be more understanding, even if they don't get it. The people who come into your life help you to be you, the difficult moments with people help you become stronger. At those times when you are going through ugly situations and people are taking you for granted.
In your life, everyday, focus on positive thoughts and they will help you make positive actions. Being nice to people and having negative thoughts don't work for your benefit. When you do something for anyone but have negative feelings towards helping them, this can backfire on you. If you don't want to do it, say No. It's better to not do it at all if you have bad feelings about it. Be positive in thought and action and it brings back good to you!
We may not be able to do more than pray and meditate. Take this time to sit in peaceful silence and send Loving Prayers.
