Love is what I am and what I do

Love is the cooperative, harmonizing,accepting,forgiving,essence of your soul.

Love does not give up.

Love does not demand what it does not have

Love doesn't force yourself itself on others in order to feel better about itself

Love doesn't attack to avenge itself

Love does not withhold itself

When we learn too see ourselves as love and to be present with others in loving ways, love will be anchored in out consciousness and on the planet. Iyanla Vanzant

Love is sometimes letting go and saying no

I am learning this

Love is wanting others to be happy even if it means them being happy without you

Love is like enjoying the sunrise sometimes - you see it rise and look at its magnificence but you cannot take it home

Love is having a strong no

 

I am reminding of myself of this today, It requires a new mindset for me, it requires a sound decision, the ability to commit to a course of action with persistence and lack of guilt.

I want what I want when I want it

That sometimes lead to confusion and fear as many times in that approach it is my ego shouting at me.

Shouting to WIN, WIN WIN - no matter what, what what!

There are times for winning no matter what

There are times when winning doesn't matter but showing up real and open

How do you know?

You will be at peace when you decide

Peace
