The Person We Talk To More Than Anyone Else Is Ourselves.

Take a moment out for honest reflection thinking about the words and tone you’re regularly speaking to yourself.  Do you make an effort to be loving and kind to yourself, or do you just let stress and negative judgments spill out as if words didn’t matter?

Learn To Speak To Yourself With Love And Make Sure You’re Treating Yourself As You Want To Be Treated.

Live boldly by being yourself. Live boldly by pursuing your desires.  Live boldly by letting yourself be seen. Live boldly by being the first to say “I love you.”  These are bold steps and the only guarantees they offer are the potential for frustration, heartache, and pain.  As counterintuitive as it seems, however, they are necessary for a joyful, love-filled life.  Here’s to living boldly!

Getting Older,…

I was aggressive as a young person.  Life was something to be beaten, as you would beat a game.  Perhaps some part of me knew that life was to be experienced and enjoyed, but back then, if I’m honest with myself, I had a mindset that through hard work and the process of elimination I would one day get to a point where I would “find” happiness.

If I could save a young person some of the struggles, along with avoiding the stops, starts, and upheavals that I went through, I’d try to share that happiness and joy and love and all those desirable emotions are not things that can be found, at all.  They’re unfindable, as trite as it may seem, because they’re hidden inside of you.  The way to “find” happiness, I learned, was to “give” happiness to others.

The way to “find” love is to “give” love.

Stop looking outside of yourself.  Finding a new career, a new job, a new partner, a new material possession, or a new situation or spiritual meaning is not the path to long-term happiness.  Giving yourself the perfect career, job, partner, possession, situation, and spiritual meaning starts inside.  Whatever you do today, give yourself to it.  Give yourself freely and without expectations of return. There will be times where you will suffer for having done so, but unless you learn to give freely, your life will only get smaller as you cross off more and more places where happiness isn’t found.

And always treat yourself with respect.  Love yourself for the perfect person you are.  You’re a miracle.  Never forget it.
