Teach Them Well

teach-people-how-to-treat-you

Respect is critical in any relationship. Be mindful to set appropriate boundaries and enforce them consistently. This is a wonderful self-care tool to use. Being aware of your personal limits and respectfully enforcing them, shows others just how valuable you believe yourself to be.

What are some of the ways that you respect and love yourself?

Love is who I AM.

I AM that, I am.

Peace is what I AM.

I AM that, I am.

The Re-Love-olution is where I AM.

I AM that, I am.

Compassion is how I will heal the world.

I AM that, I am.

I AM the light that shines in the darkness.

I AM that, I am.

Joy is what I will spread.

I AM that, I am.

Kindness is what I will give.

I AM that, I am.

I AM the hope of a new generation.

I AM THAT, I AM.

Morning Run

Navajo Sun

Some time ago, I was introduced to the beautiful sacred Navajo Tradition of running toward the sun.  Early in the morning, as the sun is coming up, the Navajos run toward the sun to greet the new day. It is believed that when the sun comes up, so does the gods. So they run to greet the gods surrounded by the beauty of the morning sunlight.

Doesn’t that sound beautiful? Imagine waking up each morning and running toward divine love. Can you picture yourself running toward fresh opportunities for the tender mercies of love? I certainly can. And I believe with my entire being, that the more I align myself with love, the more gratitude I feel with each new day and the limitless possibilities that await me.

Are you showing up every morning to claim your new and amazing possibilities?

Let The Sunshine In

The sun doesn’t ask permission to shine. She rises every morning to chase away the darkness in the world. She is confident in her abilities and asks for nothing in return. Today, let us be like the sun. Using our light to chase away the darkness in someone else’s life and expecting nothing in return. We are magnificent creations and the human family needs your light.

How will you spread Sunshine?

New Beginnings

Happy Easter everyone! Today we are reminded of the incredible victory that Jesus’ resurrection affords us. The unending possibilities for our lives are exciting. How many times have you overcome a dreadful situation? We all have the ability to overcome our trials and tribulations successfully. Now use that same strength to live a life worthy of a daughter/son of a King! It’s time to show others His reflection in our hearts, lives, loves, and actions. The world is hungry for it, and it all begins with you.

 

What new beginning are you willing to make?

Love’s Toll Bridge

We all pay a price for love. Some more than others. The human heart is a tricky organ. It wants what it wants. At times, without our permission or acknowledgement. But then there are those of us that will do almost anything to feel love, acceptance, or respect.  Think about it, we spend money we don’t have, to buy things we don’t need. Or, we compromise who we are for the sake of a relationship. Whichever the case, many of us can look back and see the high and painful price we pay to feel loved.

One of the important questions I ask myself  is, “Does this relationship make me a better person?” In my past, I used to be a workaholic. To the determent of many relationships and my health.  I was so in love with the idea of being successful that everything else came second. I woke up one day feeling completely disconnected from myself and life around me. I was so busy being who I thought everyone needed me to be, that I didn’t even know who I was anymore. It was then that I realized, I had to change, and fast.

What kind of love does your heart crave? What has been the cost? Has that love made you a better person? If that love is taking it’s emotional toll on you, then I think it’s time to look into taking a different road.

 

What price have you paid for the sake of love?

Just As I Am

Over the past few months, I have been meditating on my life and the choices I have made.  This journey began as a result of an unfortunate encounter with a loved one.  We’ve all been there before, they say something mean and for whatever reason, those words pierce like a flaming arrow through the heart.  But, I have learned to use these moments as precious opportunities for growth.

Sometimes, miracles are delivered to us in the most unique ways.  As a result of my soul searching, I now have a clearer vision for my life’s purpose. I learned that everything about me is a tremendous blessing that God is wanting to use for a glorious purpose. Just imagine for a moment, that even the not so nice parts of me, God still loves me and can use them to be a blessing. Believing that humbles me and makes me feel loved beyond measure. It gives me the power I need to love, forgive, and accept who I am. Also, being accepted just as I am gives me the courage to stop focusing on what I think is wrong with me, and use that energy to focus on what I love about me. Suddenly, I am someone who realizes that considering all the twist and turns my life has dealt me, I did the best I could with what I had at that moment. And this thinking has completely transformed the way I accept, love, and validate myself.

 

Do you struggle with self acceptance?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Future Focused
