[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Review the Intention

Whatever we are thinking, feeling, saying, or doing, we are co-creating,
empowering and magnetizing into our lives. Patricia Cota Robles

It depends on your perspective and how you view things, this knowledge that
your life is fully your responsibility can be sobering or freeing and
knowing that we co-create our lives by thought, word, deeds and actions.

Responsibility,in this case, meaning the ability to respond, the ability to
respond to every situation in our lives is really up to us, including the
choices we make.

Money Challenges - you have the ability to respond

Man Challenges - you have the ability to respond

Coworker or boss is getting on your last nerve - you have the ability to

Woman Challenges - you have the ability to respond

Career Challenges - you have the ability to respond

all and everything are our choices to make when we are in a particular

What I get caught up with is judging myself "OMG how could I have made such
a stoopid move?" - trust me that is not the very best response - blame and
judgement as a choice of response is not very helpful, it keeps you
focusing on the problem and not the solution.

I also get caught up in fear

I also start talking about how it should be, ought to be and losing the
focus on what actually is

Fear is putting faith in the unknown and in the negative

What is important is owning it, feeling the feelings and believing that the
situation is part of the process of growing, living and learning

It gets easier with practice and self belief

What I also learnt is when I own it and go back to the Intention behind why
I created what I did I realize many times my intentions were either not
borne from my highest self or done to please people.

Pay attention to the signs

Review the Intention

Believe that it can turn around

Know that you have the ability to respond - and it is your responsibility

and all things are lessons that God will have us learn
