The greatest service I can offer is… acknowledging all that I am aware of in my life.
Until today, you may have been wondering how to go about developing a greater perspective of yourself and your life.
Just for today, spend some time pondering and reflecting on these three simple points* and sharing your discoveries with others.
Today I am devoted to sharing my discoveries about self-discovery!
Iyanla Vanzant, “Until Today!”
*1. Know everything you can know about you!
*2. Know what life is all about!
*3. Know why you are alive!
This past year has all but forced me to reevaluate my entire life. I had to sit myself down and figure out why previously tried and true methods of dealing with day to day life are no longer working for me. For one, I'm not the person I've always been. I didn't transition from Single to Married as well as I should have which caused much difficulty in my life, to say the least. Until my second marriage, I was accustomed to raising my children alone without additional input or opposition. Once I realized that I had backup on parenting, my two oldest were out of the house leaving us with our youngest so I still have a chance to be a great mother. Not that I wasn't one before. I just know that for a short time I wasn't as good a mother as I used to be. I know that I thrive better when I am surrounded by love and positivity as opposed to anger and negativity not to mention I tend to absorb the emotions of those around me, especially loved ones and usually when they are upset simply because a part of me will always want to take away the pain from my loved ones. I know what emotional pain feels like. I live with it daily which is why I really don't want anyone else to go through this. It isn't fun. And if it’s not dealt with, Depression is deadly. I know that life is worth living when you have someone to love and they love you back. Life is about Love! You almost can’t create a new life without some level of love involved. Even if the two people involved don't love each other, SOMEONE wanted that child here so here he/she is! I am alive because of Love. I am here to share Love. To show Love. To give Love. To teach others how to Love. To be Loved.
