[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] It isn't really as hard as you are making it!

You have to ask yourself, 'Does this item or thought or response move me
closer to my vision for my best life?' If it does, great. If it doesn't,
what is it doing in your life? -- Peter Walsh

Had to share this one -

It isn't really as hard as you are making it. It's really quite simple. Unfortunately, you have so much "stuff" attached to it, you are creating a
burden when there need not be one. You are a creating a problem where none exists. You are causing yourself a great deal of upset for no reason. There is really no reason to fight or argue about it; to explain or demand
an explanation. You are clear!

You did not like what happened It did not honor you It was a violation of your boundaries It was not in keeping with the agreement you made or the agreement someone
made with you What is happening or has happened is not of your choice or your making. So it's really very simple!!

Stop looking for an explanation!

Stop demanding that people do what they have already demonstrated an
unwillingness or inability to do.

Accept what has happened and decide what you are going to do about it.

Once you make the decision that honors you, MOVE ON!

Accept what you know and feel to be right for you without trying to
convince others that it must be right for them.( Taken from Until Today) Thank you Iyanla
