I can’t begin to tell you just how many times I’ve had to enter this space. Often time we will look to others as a means to achieve a certain level of happiness and fulfillment. If only this person will do this for me or be this for me, I’ll be completely happy is the kind of wishful thinking that we take on until we get disappointed.
Today, fulfill your own happiness. Start first with gratitude. Look at everything that you’re currently blessed with. It truly makes you more appreciative for all that God has blessed you with and He even leaves room for expansion. Next, just do something that makes you happy. Write a list out and pick one. If achieving a goal is one, take another journey. If it’s communicating with a certain person who brings you joy, make time to reach out to them. If it’s singing, dancing, or making someone else smile, do it!

We may not be able to control the actions of others but we can definitely control our own. It’s easy to become frustrated when dealing with those who display acts of dishonesty, immaturity, etc., especially if you have to encounter them on a regular basis. To remedy the effect of dealing with these characteristics, we may find ourselves attempting to change the person in order to alter their behavior, but experience has taught me that you’ll end more stressed by taking on this approach. Instead, examine what social skills you can develop in an effort to alleviate your feelings of annoyance. Learning how to deal with different personality types instead of trying to change someone else, will benefit you way beyond what you’re currently experiencing.

Sometimes it’s worth casting your net one more time. It’s easy to get tired of trying, tired of being disappointed, and tired of being dissatisfied. But it amazes me how when we decide to give it one more try, that we excel.
Today may be the day for you to give it one more go.

I woke up today thinking about how easy it is to sweep things under the rug. We do this in hopes that the "out of sight, out of mind", methodology of dealing with things will work. How wrong have we all been in regards to that?! Of course, while dealing with our baggage is the most effective way to continue developing, it is certainly not the easiest. I'm still trying to figure it out. Although I've learned to forgive, I confess that I have not learned how to move on properly. Do I prematurely detach from someone to protect myself from being hurt by them again? Wouldn't that be living fearfully? These are revolving questions that I am currently faced with.
As we explore facing our stuff together, remember that acknowledging your feelings is the first step. For me, that meant crying over the hurt, having a discussion with the individual that caused it, and forgiving them and myself. I include myself because some things I allowed to happen. This process can be time consuming but I know that it will be worth it. Today, ask yourself the hard questions.
