We are on the cusp of finishing out the first 6 months of the year and as I sit back and reflect I am so proud of what I have accomplished. It's amazing what you can do when you really make the decision to change and grow.
Earlier this week I received a message from an old friend to rekindle our relationship. We had a falling out a few years ago and I decided that the relationship was no longer healthy for either one of us; so it ended. Today I am sitting here looking back at all that I have done, all that I have accomplished along with all that I have grown. I decided to keep our relationship where it is at because I love me more. Isn't that amazing?
Can you imagine being brave enough to love yourself more and keep the relationships that no longer work for your highest good away? Think about that for a minute....it takes guts to let someone or something go that you have always had. It takes guts to love you more than the drama that attaches to situations or people. It takes guts to let go and continue on in your journey. Think about that for a minute........
How easy would it be to go back to something that is familiar even though you know you will never get what you need? We all do it; we are all guilty of going back to someone or something even though we know we won't get what we need. To many times I have stayed in relationships because I would have a friend to talk to. It did not matter that I was the one always listening and giving advice, picking up the phone and answering...when I needed to talk and be heard I found myself alone. Are you that person? What person are you in the relationship?
I could have felt sorry for myself and buried myself in a puddle...and trust me I have; but I decided that I was going to be responsible for me and change my behavior. We all have a responsibility in who we are in life. Nothing just happens to us unless we invite it in. I have invited much crap into my life. However I decided to change me and work on me to be a better person.
It's not easy taking responsibility in your own life, taking responsibility of what happens and actions that are in your life. Sometimes things will happen to show you it's time for a change. Be brave my friends and start taking yourself on. Life is too short to allow the crap to keep coming, clean out your mind and your heart. Start to really love yourself more so you can live an extraordinary life. YOU DESERVE IT!!!
Until we meet again....
