Loving Yourself

Have a love affair with yourself!!! Its really okay to value and appreciate who you are:a beautiful creation of God. When you love yourself, you won’t allow people or situations to control you!!! Look in the mirror at yourself and say, “I love me unconditionally!!!” Try it!!!

Self-renewal/Change/Healing

Self renewal involves letting go of the old and embracing the new. Life transitions take place when you find yourself in a rut, death of a loved one, divorce, job loss and relationship break-ups. However, these hills and valleys are here to test you. You find out how strong (or weak) you really are and it prepares you for the next phase in your life.

Change is good and every negative thing that happens in your life is NOT tragic. Sometimes things happen to force you out of your comfort zone so you can grow and mature. No, it does not feel good but in the end there is a blessing waiting just for you if you allow yourself to feel the pain, loss and disappointment.

When healing takes place, you can see clearer and you make the necessary adjustments to begin anew. Remember, either you are getting ready to go through a storm, in the middle of the storm or coming out of the storm. That’s life in a nutshell!!!

Don’t allow anyone, anything, or any situation cause you to give up on having inner peace and loving yourself. No one is exempt from pain, sorrow, disappointment and rejection. The key to overcoming these trials is understanding and embracing the lesson.

Free yourself today of all the unnecessary baggage and start living life to the fullest. Live with no regrets!!!

How Do I Forgive Someone

The five steps in granting the gift of forgiveness:

A. Acknowledge the anger and hurt caused by the clearly identified specific offense(s).
B. Bar revenge and any thought of inflicting harm as repayment or punishment to the offender.
C. Consider the offender’s perspective. Try to understand his/her attitude and behavior.
D. Decide to accept the hurt without unloading it on the offender. Passing it back and forth magnifies it.
E. Extend compassion and good will to the offender. That releases the offended from the offense.
