[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Problems are Messages

Problems are messages, if there are problems in your life, the Universe is
trying to get your attention. It's saying "hey, there is something you need
to be aware of, there is something that needs to be changed here" Marianne

Keep doing the same thing and you will get the same results. That I am
almost sure you have heard before. Take a survey of your life, Spiritually.Emotionally.Financially. Socially.
Relational,Physically. Vocationally. Take a closer look at each of these
areas, are there signs and messages there that is saying pay attention,
take a closer look? Be honest, no excuses, no justifications, no judgments Sometimes the messages are clear and sometimes they are subtle - you must
be paying attention and be willing to admit that there is something that
needs to be shifted.

And listen, I get caught up in it as well, wanting things the way I want
things even with the messages, the signs, but we don't know everything, we
cannot see everything and there are times to pay attention, become aware
and be very very brutally honest with ourselves.

Do you see how you have settled, you have put up a hammock there and
thought is was the beach, you have settled, you just made yourself
comfortable and decided that this was your lot in life. You alone have to
decide that this is not your lot in life There are somethings you just have to say no to There are some places that you absolutely must not go

But this involves being honest, letting go of the making excuses, being
defensive, escapism, it's a decision you alone must make The moment I made that decision my life began to change, decide and act, it
took me making that choice and becoming willing to be emptied so that I can
be refilled I was now ready to see beyond the circumstances, the present and know and
believe that there is more to life than these feelings So, over to you... You are worth it Claim it Peace
