This week's theme is self-love. I used to feel guilty when I'd put myself first before others because I was conditioned to put forth others before myself. Then, I saw the light--I realized and thought to myself, if I don't take care of myself, then who else will? Exactly. You have your own back. With that in mind, I grew and continue to grow on this spiritual journey. Don't take this the wrong way, I still have some of my obsessive side until I hear my inner voice saying to me to quit for the day and try again tomorrow. Still, I'm a work in progress. I see myself as undergoing "renovations" to my complete self. I'd like to think of as being "under construction" to keep improving myself for the best of me and for those around me. As MJ's song goes "...Take a look in the mirror and make that change..." That's what I've done and continue to do.
I'm not evil but at the same time, I'm no saint either. I'm me, doing the best I can to make this world a better place. I don't need to explain myself but I choose to. So I here go, when I find myself ready to complain, I switch gears and ask myself--how can I fix this problem? What do I need to do? If I can't answer it and/or fix it, then I let go and (try my hardest not to obsess over it) ask the Higher Power to take over. I still find myself thinking about it but at the same time--another thought appears in my head as if to direct my attention in another direction so God could work behind the scenes to resolve matters when/where needed--DIVINE INTERVENTION. I'll keep this practice up until it is once again time to change it up. All of this is practice, practice does indeed make perfect. So there that is "my secret" to a happier life. Yes, I'm at peace and yes, I love me and I'm happy. Gotta problem with that? If so, please take a look at your own life and worry about yours before you worry about mine.
Until next week, I bid you all love, light and compassion.
