Like in Tug-o-War, sometimes the easiest way out of a conflict is to just let go. Sometimes what we cling to tightest is what we most desperately need to let go. Heartbreak can be an unfortunate prerequisite for fulfillment.We can’t rush healing, but we can make it welcome.
As you evolve and become knowledgeable in life, you will seldom experience having regrets because everything occurs for a reason. It’s either a blessing or a lesson. It is what you haven’t done that will cause you distress. It is important to appreciate the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor the experiences. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you’ve lost them forever.
On yesterday, I was talking with one of my patients about handicaps. In my practice, I do not like anyone using the term “crazy.” We all have our own personal issues, and handicaps. On a daily basis, I am teaching my patients that our current handicaps do not define us as a person. Some handicaps are physical, mental, and emotional. Sometimes the emotional, burdens of heartache come from sad situations or an abusive past. Others may be dealing with current issues- perhaps dealing with terminal illness or grieving an irreparable loss. After a loss some people find it hard to move forward, and spend a lifetime waiting for the pain to disappear. You can spend your entire life waiting on the pain to disappear, but the loss will always be there. The pain and heartache will be present. It is important to treat it as a handicap, and within that framework go ahead and live your life. When you reach that point in your life, is when you will be able to move forward, and live your life.
Many of us are living with handicaps. Some will change over time, but others won’t. If that’s the case, stop waiting for your handicap to disappear. Instead, decide to live with it. Work around it. Treat yourself with care, with gentleness. Allow yourself to feel and experience all the limitations and emotions of your present situation. Accept them. Let them be part of you, part of your experience on this journey called life. What’s your handicap?
The feeling of being offended is a warning indicator that is showing you where to look within yourself for unresolved issues. Have a blessed day!
Good morning (TGIF),
Courage lies in the simple things as well as the grandiose. It’s fun and easy to speculate about how we would respond in our dreams. Do you have the courage to live your life, to walk your path every day, right where you are?
Sometimes it takes more courage to the ordinary things in life than it does to walk to the door of the airplane and jump. I was sitting in bed last night paying bills for August, and I was thinking it takes courage to pay the bills. It takes courage to get up for work, support your family, and walk the path that you have been given to walk. We all need courage to do things that scare us and sometimes to do the thing that doesn’t scare us, over and over again.
I am not perfect and on a daily basis I am praying to God: please grant me the courage to the right thing in my relationships, in my career, and in my spiritual growth. Please give me the courage to live my life.
You are a master of the words you don’t say and a slave to the ones you do.
When a relationship is truly shared, theft is almost impossible.
Have you ever felt that you are constantly giving away your power, and how vulnerable you are to people or situations? Each of us has an unlimited supply of power available. The power to think, to feel, to take care of ourselves. The power to open our hearts, love, be gentle, honest, and kind. We each have the power to be clear and to trust and follow the guidance of our hearts.
Part of our journey to freedom, an important part,is equalizing our relationships. We may have believed that others knew a great deal more than we did, or we may have begun to believe that we had all the answers. But no one has our power.
Remember, if you give up your power or decide that someone has power over you, you’ll begin grousing, sabotaging, and doing sneaky things to equalize that relationship, to feel like you have your power. There’s another way, a better way, one that will help heal you. Put yourself on equal ground.
The things we stress over that won’t matter in a year take years off our lives.
