When I ignore and suppress my feelings, they come out in frightening, sometimes destructive ways. I need to learn to honor them… whatever they are.
“Love is not getting, but giving. It is a sacrifice. And sacrifice is glorious!” – – Joanna Field
I won’t look for love today. I will just give it. It will Bless me tenfold. 💙
“Parents can only give good advice out of them or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands.” –Anne Frank
Parenting is the hardest job u will ever have, but can bring u so much joy, especially the grandchildren in ur future. When u think about the big picture is any of the differences in Our adult children worth losing that relationship? 💗

“Life is made up of desires that seem big and vital one minute, and little and absurd the next. I guess we get what’s best for us in the end.”
–Alice Caldwell Rice

Perfectionism is a side effect of addiction. Trying to be perfect (impossible) we beat ourselves up, judge, and distort ourselves. We are never enough. Trying too hard and not trying at all are two signs of the coin of perfection. Unfortunately it is a coin that never ever pays off…
Today when I S-L-O-W down I am free and open to all the blessings that are meant just for me. Frantic and panic are old familiar friends. It’s time to kick them out from Our house.
“It’s our illusions that hang us up.” – – Anne Wilson Schaef
Our addictions lead us into a life of illusion. They feed our illusion of control, our illusion of perfectionism, and our honesty.
Our addictive behavior allows us to deny reality and justify not living OUR life.
One of the significant qualities of being an adult is being able to separate ourselves from illusion and nourish ourselves with reality rather than feed on illusion.
God’s Timetable is not necessarily Our Timetable. Events will happen as scheduled and for a bigger picture than Our ego will permit.
I will take a long look at where I am today and be grateful for my place. It’s right for me now and is preparing me for my next adventure.
Expectations are like girdles. We probably should have discarded them years ago.
Full attention to the person sent to me will offer me exactly what I need today. My inner guide has beckoned them.
I can be alert, expect solutions, and celebrate the wonder of it all.
We must learn to ACT rather than REACT. Change is ours if we want it. Being in charge of our own feelings and our own actions prevents anxiety from overcoming us.
The opportunities to react will be many today. Everytime I pause, determine the action I feel better about and take it. My emotional health gets a booster shot everytime I make a responsible choice.
Problems give us the opportunity to learn something. If we don’t get the message the first time around, we get another chance, and another, and another. When we miss out on the learning each time the whack upside the head gets harder.
Obstacles are gifts for learning. We never really know what we have learned until we learn it, or as my hubby says you don’t know until you know! K. I. S. S.
