2018-08 - Your Wellbeing...

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions.

Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go.

Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else.

You have to make your wellbeing a priority.

Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful - you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.

2018-07 - A Lifetime...

Lets say that when I turned sixteen, a genie had appeared to me and said, 'Warren, I'm going to give you the car of your choice. Brand-new.' I would have said, 'What's the catch?'

And the genie would have answered, 'This is the last car you're ever going to get in your life. So it's got to last a lifetime.'

I would have picked out a car. But, can you imagine, knowing it had to last a lifetime, what I would do with it? I would read the manual about five times. I would always keep it garaged. If there was the least little dent or scratch, I'd have it fixed right away because I wouldn't want it rusting. I would baby that car, because it would have to last a lifetime.

That's exactly the position you are in, concerning your mind and body. You only get one mind and one body. And it's got to last a lifetime.

You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you are going.

2018-06 - Abundance...

Another miraculous transformation is the shift from a sales mentality to a service mentality.

When we're motivated by the desire to sell, we're only looking out for ourselves. When we're motivated by the desire to serve, we're looking out for others.

Since in the realm of consciousness, we only get to keep what we give away, a service mentality is a far more abundant attitude.

~  Marianne Williamson

Live in love to live in abundance.

2018-05 - Family...

There is no such thing as a "broken family".

Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart.

The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family.

And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.

The most important thing in the world is family and love.

2018-04 - Choices...

August: "You know, somethings don't matter that much... like the color of a house. But lifting a person's heart... now that matters. The whole problem with people..."

Lily: "They don't know what matters and what doesn't..."

August: "They know what matters, but they don't choose it... The hardest thing on earth is to choose what matters."

~ Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees)

Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.
