Beautiful Journey Marriage And You

I have been married for almost 20 years, and I remember a time in the beginning when the two becoming one – soul mates – was a bit rocky.

One day my hubby and I were in sharp disagreement about something, and he asked me to take care of the dishes without even volunteering to help.

I was very displeased with how my husband had just spoken to me; his tone was unkind. I was standing at the sink doing dished and fuming big time.

I remember telling God/Source Energy/The Universe, that he needed to change with my husband’s attitude. LOL, I said it was a great passion and out loud. All of a sudden, this thought rushed into my head, “No, I need to change you.”

I literally had a physical reaction, stepped back from the sink, and protested. I told God, but you saw and heard how he just spoke to me, what do you mean I need to change? And, again, those words rushed back into my mind – “No, I need to change you.”

I was not a happy camper, and I most certainly didn’t understand, but I knew in my heart God was much smarter than me, and Source Energy had the answers. My job was to get away from the ego/pride and seek higher-self, which is connected to the universe/God and find my answer.

Over time I came to learn I had to be responsible for what was happening around me. I played a part in what is happening around me, either directly or indirectly, through my thoughts. Thoughts carry power-energy, they create.

When I was able to wrap my mind around the whole concept of being responsible for whatever was happening around me and live it out, things changed, I changed, and from those changes over time, my husband also changed and when he changed I improved even more.

The hard part was choosing to move into a place of love and Humility, letting go of ego/pride, and being willing to look at me, the good, the bad, and the ugly. It was not always a comfortable journey, but I can tell you it was worth it.

Once I was able to establish this new way of living long enough, it became a habit. Now when the old ways try to creep in from time to time, it is so much easier to identify what is happening and defuse it.

Have a beautiful day!

Magic Believe In You

When I first started my journey of discovering the authentic me, I had to start by believing in myself.

Even though I thought I did believe in me, it was not until I got the courage up to ask myself particular questions, then I got choked up and realized I had some deep pain trapped inside of me I needed to release, so I could fully love and appreciate myself.

Lessons to live by…
Love Yourself
Loving yourself has this magical effect that causes you to change; therefore, your whole world will change.
Speak kindly to yourself
being mindful of the words you say about yourself. Our words are powerful and can build us up or tear us down.
Don’t hold on to anger and resent
Resentment and anger destroy your physical body, your spiritual life, and poisons your mind.
Gratitude
Being truly thankful for who you and where you right now bring joy, peace, and healing. For me, gratitude is the catalyst for all my changes.
Trust yourself
Trusting your intuition, it is your compass in life.
Stay Away From Toxic People
If someone is a true friend and cares about you, they will respect you and care about what is important to you.
