[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] You're chasing the feeling

An attachment is something we have a strong emotional connection to that
has nothing to do with our survival or even our truth. We may think
releasing this attachment will destroy us....but will it really? Releasing
our attachments may create change, but it can not destroy us, nothing can!
We are Eternal Spirit.

Our attachments are always based on fear. We stay attached to a job, a
belief system, a relationship, a city, behavioral patterns, addictions or
negative mental thought processes ~ that no longer serves us ~ because we
are afraid of the unknown, the what if's... and we don't want to step out
of our comfort zones. Sabrina Reber

What do you want and why? How do you want to feel? Why do you want the relationship? Why do you want the house? Why do you want the money and the job? Why do you want to date that guy or girl? Why do you want those designer clothes? Why do you want that holiday trip? Why do you want that piece of chocolate? Why do you want to be seen at this event?

99.9% of the time it is because we want to feel a certain way.

So how do you want to feel? Start there! Set the goals and intentions from that space, that feeling!

I want to feel courage, freedom, joy, content and love! That's where I'm
starting from starting right now! Which means, some things are surely going
to change in my life and I'm down for that! No fear! Bring it on!

Peace!
