Hidden gems, Inspirational words

Struggling in your relationship?

I recently heard one of the most powerful questions, that really spoke to my heart.

It has helped me move away from relationships that were bringing me pain and were feeling unbalanced.

The question is:

“Am I getting enough of what I need to make grieving for what I’m not getting OK with me?”

I can’t recall where I heard it but wanted to share this golden piece of wisdom .

With love.

Hidden gems, Inspirational words

Thought for today…

You are enough…

Self hate uses self improvement as self maintenance

As long as you are concerned about “always” improving yourself.

You will always have a self to improve

and you will always suffer….

Be you, in all your wounded glory…..

(There is nothing wrong with you – Cheri Huber)

Inspirational words

Reflection for today…

Look how far you’ve come

Take a moment to reflect on your journey, and see how far you’ve come.

All the ways you’ve learned and grown. All the obstacles you’ve overcome.

Your mind may often remind you of all things you have or haven’t done, but just for a while give yourself some credit for who you are and be proud!

Your life is precious, and this is worth celebrating..

(Messages of Grace – Anna Grace Taylor)

Inspirational words

Awakening…

White wings and radiating light

I wanted to share these insightful words of wisdom from a wonderful book that I read called the Instruction Manual for Recieving God by Jason Shulman.

It’s a simple to digest book and highly recommended.

The hard work of truly awakening involves getting a clear idea of just how much of life we cannot bear.

We need to see how limited we really are. Then we will have the chance to meet God in reality and not in the fateful fantasy of saving or punishing ourselves.

The real self is not found in the movies or on the stage. It is not in books and has no script.

It is filled with surprise entrances and sometimes inexplicable exits.

All of this is OK.

It takes practice to let go of some limited idea of perfection or goodness. God is not a reward. God is your own miserable, magnificent self.
