When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change!
Quote from Wayne Dyer.
How do you look at your spouse, friend, sibling, child, neighbor, in-laws? If it's in a negative way of judging I encourage you to change your point of view. See what happens. How do you look at yourself, what does your self image look like? If it's not good it's time to change!
As I look at the difficult people in my life and my circumstances. I see that's what it took for me to be me today. My struggle has been a lack of communication. I didn't believe in myself enough to be a strong communicator. In dealing with what I call a difficult personality. Difficult because I couldn't see clearly that it was me that needed to change not the other person! I was acting as if I was God. I called the shots on who should do what!!! That puts a lot of stress on relationships.
I was creating the most difficult life for myself as I looked through the eyes of judgement. Not through the eyes of love. God is good everyday. God is love. God got my attention through His Love. His love changes everything for the good.
In realizing I am loved. I am worth being loved. I believe I can get what I want living in the desires of my heart through God who put them there.
If I'm not getting what I want, then I'm not communicating clearly. Just to clear things up so there are not any questions that come to your mind.This is in regards to wanting to get the other person on board with an idea. Once I'm able to see clearly exactly what it is that I want to do I must think about how I'm going to present myself and my idea.
To be able to present an idea I must believe in me so that I can face all opposition. Believe me I've had more than enough opposition.
When I didn't know what to do with my emotions and had no sense of self worth to even open up my mouth to ask for what I wanted I hid under the bed and cried. I was a depressed, young mother of three children. That's pretty sad - it's not a pretty picture. Now when I don't know what to do the first thing I do is pray for the words to say. I create a healthy boundary on my emotions and do not allow another persons out of control emotions leave me in shreds. When that person is calm I approach the same situation in another way. In a way that they will see value in what I am bringing into the conversation.
I believe the world is so broken and hurting because love is missing. When love touches your heart hatred melts. Love helps you to see the whole picture through God's eyes. When love is present you are able to accept yourself and others just as you are; without judgement or criticism. You are able to be yourself as well. Because you know who you are. You know your true identity. No one can take that away from you. The enemy can not find you and fill you with doubt. There is no room for doubt.
It's no secret how much you love yourself, it shows. May you change the way you see yourself so you can stand up, show up and speak up in the game called 'This is Your Life'. See what a difference it will make living with a smile on your face. And see the change in others because they feel loved by you.
