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

Have the conversation so you no longer have to carry the burden. Lighter. Kick the fake food so your body can re-set to optimal. Lighter. Bathe your body with complete sensual respect -- because it's YOUR BODY.
Lighter. Sit your beautiful self down and be still so that you can feel life pulsing
through you. Stay there just a minute longer because that's the place where
the heavy thoughts give way to the healing truth. Let light pour through
you -- it's the most powerful tool in the universe -- cleansing, revealing,
life-giving. Lighter. Danielle La Porte

This week the pace was up, I have been sitting outside of my comfort zone
and truth be told, it is taking a bit of getting used to, the early
mornings and late nights - and what it showed me is that making time to
rest and regroup is an absolute priority.

And so this week I will take and implement the lesson of making time to
rest and regroup into the schedule or live through the consequences.

What else has been happening? Well, someone who I thought was a friend, it
turns out that this person seems not to be on my page. And I am deducing
this by actions as I haven't really asked the question directly. And here I
am, I must admit it hit me, it hit me in the gut like a body blow. I was
talking to a friend of mine today and I said okay what is my that
contributed to where we are, I want to take responsibility for my actions
and learn from it

Her suggestion was to see if there is a pattern to my behavior but don't
take responsibility for other people's actions.

My gut says that the lesson has been learnt, the relationship has changed,
and it is my responsibility to accept that and move on

The ole' reason, season, story, people are in your life for a reason and a
season. and life goes on.... Lighter
