The end of this year has posed some trying times for me. These past few weeks have made literally sit back and enjoy all that I have. I have come across some serious obstacles that have made me really stop and be with my family. Sometimes we have to stop what we are doing to refocus and really take notice of what is important.
Today's inspiration is so fitting for me because I am going through some physical changes that the medicine I am on is causing. I am blowing up like a pregnant lady and my face is extremely puffy. I have been dealing with hot flashes and not being able to sleep or really focus. Rule #3 Stop judging yourself and Rule #4 Stop criticizing yourself is so very important to follow. I have to keep reminding myself that I have to walk the talk. If I am not willing to judge another by their appearance why am I so quick to judge myself? I have to keep reminding myself that I am going through this for a reason, and that reason is to help other women accept themselves fully no matter what. No one is walking in my shoes but me; I should not dare judge or criticize myself. I need to love myself fully.
Rule #1 Trust your instincts and Rule # 2 Believe in yourself; these are two very important rules to live your life fully. You have to trust what is happening in your life will work out for your highest good along with protecting you from something that could cause you harm. If things don't work out the way you want; I have found it's either because you will find yourself in deeper trouble or it is just not your time; either way you have to trust. You have to believe in yourself fully; don't let anyone ever tell you that you are not good enough or NO. You will always know if something is right for you; and your dreams literally are coming from God. The Divine Spirit would never put that burning desire deep down inside of you if he did not thing you could do it. That burning desire is there for a reason, that reason is your destiny, the journey is what is going to make or break you. We have to learn the lessons to get to our destination to achieve our dreams.
Rule #6 Do something that scares you. What really scares you? What scares me is asking for help. Asking someone for help is something that has stopped me over and over. To me asking something of someone especially help or support shows that I am weak in some way. I could lie to you and say I don't know why I feel this way, but growing up you had to stand on your own two feet. You were weak if you asked for help. If you want it done right you have to do it yourself. Even using coupons was frowned upon, because then you are trying to take advantage in getting something for free. As I write these old hidden beliefs are coming out. We all grew up with generations of sayings and old negative thought patterns we have taken on for ourselves. Do something scary...think and do for your highest good and let go of the old way of thinking.
Read through the 10 rules and really look for yourself what has you stopped, how can you be the strong confident woman that you are. How can you really start to change your own life? You would not believe how we have taken on old habits that are not ours or even our own experiences, but we keep them as if they are ours. What is it that you can start to let go of so that you can be your deepest burning desire...think about it and start to do it.
Until we meet again my friends...
With all my love...Rita
