This week, through its difficulties, proved to be one filled with reflection and revelations. Everything I believed and trusted was placed in a burning inferno. I stopped chasing then I sought and found the answers to my questions. The result is pure beauty!
Women often reach out to me seeking advice for one issue or another but the root problem seems to always go back to “I just want to be happy”. I, too, am guilty of this thinking. I just wanted more than anything to be happy. Then I created ALL these THINGS in my mind that would make me happy. I’ve heard some the things from women who’ve reached to me. If only I could make $5,000 more. If only I could find a man who loves me for me. If only he would just listen to me. If only…. If only…
This “if only” thought pattern is actually destructive or stinking thinking. Expectation in man or things will ALWAYS yield disappointment. We are humans and thus not exempt from selfishness, sin or wrongdoing. There is an answer to this! The answer already lies within you.
I haven’t really discussed my spirituality much on this site but I think this is the perfect time. There are a gabillion (lol) websites, coaches, books, seminars, etc on relationships and self-improvement. Some take the angle of spirituality while others take the psychological approach. I believe in the realistic approach! I believe in this approach because at the end of the day life is one of THE best teachers we have. It doesn’t matter if it’s learning by observing others or walking through the trenches ourselves. The problem comes when people begin to pass judgment on others because of their life decisions. However, I digress! I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying that is preached to women so often; “love yourself first”. I totally agree with this saying but people are rarely given instruction on how to do this. It becomes nothing more than rhetoric or textbook advice. I’ve resurrected ALL my journals through the years to provide an actual solution to this piece of advice. Yes, you must learn to love yourself FIRST, but how.
First things first! You weren’t created out of thin air. Meet your creator! Seek his Kingdom first! When you seek the kingdom of God, find it, embrace it, and love it then you will truly learn who you are. Once you know who you are and have a strong sense of self then you can find peace. That peace brings an inexplicable joy. That joy creates true genuine happiness. That happiness is confidence! Once you have that God will bless you and answer your heart’s desires. When you seek the kingdom of God your divine purpose is revealed. I’ve said a lot here. I’ll break this down even further in subsequent posts. The first issue to tackle is “The Power of Belief”.
Have any of you had issues with learning to love yourself? This is a non-judgmental area so feel free to post your feelings.
Until next time….
