Are you attracting the relationships that create more joy in your life?
Are you ready for someone to love you just for you?
How are the relationships in your family?
Would you like to improve your relationship with your children or grandchildren?
If you aren't happy with the love that is or isn't showing up in your life perhaps there needs to be a switch of focus. Ask yourself truthfully, how much do you love yourself? How much time and energy do you give to YOU? Do you put everyone else before you? Do you feel uncomfortable speaking up and letting people know that something doesn't work for you? Of do you let other people's desires trump over yours?
I know this story all too well. And on one rainy day it all changed. The day my son died, I knew that I had to start making a life for me. If I wanted to continue to live here on this planet, things needed to be different and the only person who could change those things was me! I wasn't sure how that was going to happen but I used some of the ideas I share here and I have to say, "I love my life."
Is now the time for you or do you want to wait until your bottom drops out, if it hasn't already? Are you ready to really have all of you? What if you let go of all the beliefs that you carry about how selfish and wrong it is to love, care, nurture and be kind to you? What if you began to see that "Love your neighbor as yourself" really means loving yourself first so that anyone else you love will truly feel loved. What if by loving yourself you show and give others in your life permission to love themselves? What if by loving yourself, the world begins to experience what the word LOVE really means?
If you are truly ready to have all of you, you can start by taking this moment to acknowledge that you are a gift just for being you. You can stop trying to please everyone and start pleasing yourself. This will take effort and choice and each time you choose to do something for you, you will gain more awareness of just how much fun it is to be YOU.
