Purpose Affirmation: Today I live my truth. As I live my truth, I teach others to do the same!
Freedom: That is my word for the rest of the year. The word I chose at the beginning of the year was "abundance" and they work beautifully together, because I am seeking an abundance of freedom. I wish to be free from emotional living and thinking. I wish to free myself from the ideals of society. I wish to be free from self-sabotaging (in my thinking). I wish to free myself from the bondage of caring what others think about me. Now the latter I can honestly say I have been very good at these past three years, but the others I have some work to put in. I'm learning that if I succeed at freeing myself from these things I can find a greater joy than ever before and let's be truthful. I WANT greater joy in my life. Who doesn't right? To gain this freedom I must TRUST. I must trust God first and foremost and then I need to truly trust MYSELF. At the end of the day that's whom I truly have a trust issue with. This was my Aha thought after I re-read my post yesterday. I TRUST God, but I don't fully trust me. Why? I've allowed so much to happen. I've allowed so many to hurt, use and even abuse me. Although, I have been on a path of restoration since 2008 I still have allowed people to hurt me. Not saying I have the power to see it coming and then stop it, but I do have the right after their first offense to say enough is enough.
This journey is about learning to love ME as God does. It's about trusting my own judgments and knowing that it is SO okay to nurture myself daily. In fact, it is imperative that I nurture myself daily. I'm not speaking of "things." It starts from within and moves it's way to our outer areas. Some of the things I'm learning scare me, but they also push me to improve. For living a peaceful and love filled life does not happen magically. It indeed takes work. Work I am completely willing to do.
Today's Intentions: I intend to re-assure myself that it's okay to nurture myself
Today's Kind Act: I'm going through this day completely trusting myself. No seconding guessing and forgiving myself for past mistakes.
