I know I need to work on something when I feel hurt by it, or when my ego is involved. Our emotions, are our bodies reaction to our thoughts. Just because we think something doesn’t mean it’s true, but there still might be a feeling associated with the thought. There are days when I feel in total alignment, when my heart and my mind are doing the same thing. Then, there are other days when they are all out of whack! It’s almost a feeling of restlessness, or suffocation. However, the good news is, that I’ve learned what causes this and how to fix it. Now that’s not to say that I can implement it all of the time. No, No that’s impossible, but I can learn to be still, learn to be present. I can become the watcher of my own mind as Eckhart Tolle says.
There will always be lessons to learn, and for that I am thankful. When I take the focus off of myself, and begin to look at others, I become side tracked. I realize, that these obstacles are here to teach me a lesson. If I had already learned the lesson, then it couldn’t possibly repeat itself. So continues the journey to practice presence, and to grow myself as a person.
One of the reasons I am an entrepreneur, is so that I could be my own boss. I became a hair stylist, because it was a job where I still could be me. I wouldn’t lose my identity in hair, I would actually be able to foster and grow my authentic self in a way that was harmonious with my soul. I am the most content, when I can be me. I am a very high energy person. I love to have fun, and laugh and be in the moment. I am positive, I am funny, and I am oh so loud. I am a kid at heart, and I love to sing even though I suck at it! I am faithful and kind and loyal and proud. I am all of the things that make me unique and one of a kind.
I have worked so hard to become the woman that I am today. I can honestly say that I love her more today then I ever have in the past. I am proud of myself and my accomplishments both personally and professionally. I have real, authentic friendships and relationships with the people in my life. I don’t strive for perfection because that’s just silly, but I do work hard to be better this month, then I was last month. I empower my friends and loved ones, and I will never apologize for being me.
If your judging someone, then you don’t have anytime to love them.
If you see things negatively, that’s because you choose to see them that way.
Blame and judgement are for the weak, honesty and self reflection are for the mighty.
