I love to sit down and write about the things in my life which have helped me heal my past wounds and traumatic experiences. I feel called to do this because I know that everyone goes through hard times and the world could use more inspiration. There have been so many kind and loving people who have crossed my path and showed me so much love and encouragement. I have learned that having and giving love and compassion is the key to living your best life.
I used to give everybody the benefit of the doubt because I was being a people pleaser. Once I started to put myself first and think about what I wanted, it became clear to me that negativity was not on the list. I “cut” ties with many people who did not care about me and my needs. This was life altering!
I realized that I have always been the one in charge but I was giving my power away to others who did not deserve it. Once I started to understand why I was doing this it became so much easier to put myself first.
I know that nothing in life happens by accident and there are no coincidences. Pay closer attention to these types of experiences in your life. This will help you to slow down, evaluate and live more in the moment. By living in the moment you are neither living in the past or the future. Your thoughts become your current reality. So if you are thinking about the past all of the time than you are currently still living in the past, in this present moment.
My Aunt sandy used to always say “if it’s to be it’s up to me”. This means you can have whatever you want, you have to do the work. It’s not easy but it’s worth it.
The following is a quote from Dr. Joe Dispenza.
(If you have not read or seen any of his work, it’s a MUST!)
“Your thoughts and feelings come from your past memories. If you think and feel a certain way, you begin to create an attitude. An attitude is a cycle of short-term thoughts and feelings experienced over and over again. Attitudes are shortened states of being. If you string a series of attitudes together, you create a belief. Beliefs are more elongated states of being and tend to become subconscious. When you add beliefs together, you create a perception. Your perceptions have everything to do with the choices you make, the behaviors you exhibit, the relationships you chose, and the realities you create.”
