Sometimes I feel that people walk around and interact with one another thinking “What’s in it for me?” Other people then become a gratification for a hunger and void inside of us and instead of fulfilling our mind, body and soul these type of relationships become draining.
But others can’t give to us what we’re not giving ourselves being love, acceptance and approval. So why not turn it around and give to yourself first and then from that abundant place approach others with a “How can I help you?” approach? If you want love, give love, if you want approval, approve of others just the way they are and if you want to feel more confident, help another build their self esteem.
Only people that are ‘full of themselves’ with the qualities they seek in others can share that type of energy with somebody else. Claim back your power and then share it with others because it’s only in the sharing that positive energy can continue to grow
When you’re stuck, GIVE…
I’ve had times where I felt stuck, like now, and where nothing seem to happen. Or at least I think…
Things are happening but just not what I thought I wanted to happen. I get stuck in a victim role complaining of why things aren’t happening instead of claiming back my power, change my mindset and see changes enroll from that point.
I look for external approval and look for signs that confirm that things will be happening. But you will never find real power outside of yourself. I know that when I feel depleted like this it’s because a void inside of me is calling for my attention. It’s awkward and I don’t want to confront it so I deviate my attention outwards so I won’t have to deal with it. But it’s a race I will never win because until you deal with what you’re running from it will have a hold of you and sabotage your best efforts.
So when I’m in this “I need you to approve of me” phase I know I need to approve of myself first, listen to my needs and most important of all ACKNOWLEDGE them, see if my boundaries are healthy and do what my body, mind and soul asks of me.
I’ve been so busy getting things done, running, chasing and working constantly that I didn’t even realize my body is so tired. But I’m blessed in that way because when I’m too stubborn to listen the Universe intervenes and NOTHING happens forcing me to rest (which is what I needed to do in the first place). Things are happening behind the scenes but not on stage so I literally can’t do much….but give myself the rest I need.
Just like your phone runs out of batteries and you need to recharge it the same goes for your body, mind and soul. Otherwise you will jeopardize your productivity, creativity, energy and business in the long run which is something you don’t want even though you feel there’s a lot to be done today, tomorrow and next week. And when you give to yourself you can give more to others and that in itself will also fuel your energy level and boost up your karma level.
Today is Sunday, a day God intended for rest. So instead of staring at your to-do list, do nothing, take a nap, go for a walk, watch your favorite movie or do something you enjoy
Have a blessed day lovelies!
