Lately my thoughts have been all over the place. My sleeping habits are off balance and I just feel overall kind of displaced. I guess it's time for another detox. My first thought is to a three day liquid only fast, so I guess that is what I'm doing.
I want to be honest about what I'm feeling. I'm having thoughts of failing before I even start. But that is not enough to keep me from trying.
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.
Disassociating yourself from a thing or person that doesn’t serve you can be very instrumental in your personal progression. It is one thing to be compassionate in giving or keeping temporary company with someone for a specific purpose, but that doesn’t mean that you have to become connected for life.
Learn to develop healthy relationships and disconnect from those who were only meant to be in your life a season.
As we continue with the theme from yesterday, I wanted to address the act of letting go. One of the hardest things for me to let go was the ill intentions of others. To create fault by negligence is one thing but to be intentionally motivated to execute harm to someone else is entirely different.
Throughout the years I’ve discovered a pattern of dealing with offenses without dealing with the offender. That involved me acknowledging what kind of person they were and accepting that I allowed them into my personal space. So it almost became less about them and more about me not being responsible for my emotional well being.
Face those past traumas of hurt inflicted by others and choose to forgive and let go. You will have a hard time finding freedom until you forgive others and in turn forgive yourself. Be well, be healthy.

There is something very serene about ridding the food pantry of outdated items or cleaning out ones closet to gain visibility of what the wardrobe actually consist of. Once finished, we feel rejuvenated, refreshed, and accomplished. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to experience those same feelings from clearing your mind and heart space of old trauma that no longer serve you?
We can sometimes hold onto things for years. This creates a spiritual environment full of hate, regret, frustration, inability to trust, and many more things that cloud judgment and detour growth.
Today, get started on your Spring Cleaning by clearing out your inner space. Sit with yourself and allow your thoughts to relay a message. Something could’ve happened twelves years ago that you never sat with and processed. Don’t just clear out the otter space without looking inward first.

When you have a natural propensity to see things from a multi perspective, you can usually see the good and bad in various situations. This serves as a great benefit when trying to see the bright light in a dim arena. We hope that our week turns out the exact way that we plan for it to but it just doesn’t always work out that way. So being able to step back and shift our focus from that immediate feeling of disappointment, can turn a bad thing into at least a satisfactory one.
As we start a new work week, I would like for you to start incorporating a multi view on things. Someone may not show up to a scheduled meeting or you may get thrown off a few task for personal reasons, whatever the case, use those moments as opportunities to grow beyond the hurdles. Don’t allow these little occurrences to shake your hope for the rest of the week. Those positive traits that we don’t naturally have, can be developed through consistent and premeditative actions.

Smiling is something that we are usually advised to do for others in order to reflect a welcoming persona but rarely do we render this act of kindness to ourselves. If the recipient appreciates this glowing gesture, why not infiltrate our own day with a little dose of it.
So before you give your smile away today to someone else, give yourself one first!
