“Tears are good. What flows is alive. Crying is like a thundershower for the soul. The air feels so wonderful after the rain. Don’t think too much. Breathe. Don’t be harsh or demanding on yourself. Just experience your feelings and know that your tears are announcing change in your life. Change is coming; like a summer rain — to wash away your pain. Have faith that things are getting better.”

In a world that wants you to be something else, simply have the courage to be beautiful, and let your heart’s unbridled truth flow and move upon each person you encounter. In one transformative quickening, you are freed from the tyranny of self-doubts, simply by seeing and acknowledging the treasure of your own soul. When you truly see yourself, it will be love at first sight. You are such fineness. There is such quality in your life. No substitute can ever compete with your matchless qualities. Every peace of mind you ever sought begins by forgiving yourself and loving yourself. It all starts with the way you see yourself. If you cannot see your own beauty, then you are not looking with honest eyes. If your life is not a love story, then you are not living the life meant for you.

What truly matters,  what do we need most and instead we think we can be good without it,  like somehow we’re happy on our own.   We can not!  It is important for us to show love even they don’t give it back,  I have been thinking that if I love it should come back to me, but that doesn’t seem to matter as much to me.   I know I have people that love me but I realized that it means more if you always awoke not worrying about what others think.  I am happy and I know that I have something that most people don’t see,  loving yourself first than you will be able to do things for others when they don’t think that you are there for them and that is a gift you can give no one has to know.   Love is the best gift!  It took me a while to understand how something so simple could be what makes me happy;  loving others!

Almost all real spirituality is about connecting with your truth. Who you are is an expression of your version of a Higher Power. You insult every version of a Higher Power in existence when you live falsely, timidly and out of accord with your awesomely unique truth. There are different levels of consciousness and awareness. Every discipline of religion and psychology has their own version of this stratification. There are varying levels of spirituality, emotional maturity, and intellectuality. These levels effectively isolate us from one another. The higher realms can see and visit the lower realms, but the lower realms have difficulty seeing or visiting the higher realms. Ascension through all levels of consciousness and awareness can only happen when you live life as you, and not how others think you should live. How could self-realization possibly be anything other than being yourself? Taking advice is fine; by all means, be open-minded, but not to the point of allowing others to obliterate your uniqueness. Evolving and bettering yourself is wonderful, but not if the set of standards and values you adopt smother you into oblivion in the process. Your uniqueness is the greatest gift you will ever receive in life. Your uniqueness is the master key that unlocks the hidden treasures of your lifetime. Who you are is indispensable to yourself and others. You are worthless to others if you don’t know your own self and self-worth. Claw your way out from your slumber. Look deeply within yourself; that is what they mean when they talk about “finding yourself” and “knowing yourself.” And once you find yourself — exert yourself unapologetically and unconditionally. Expand into the fullness of you. Dare to simply own the space of your body. Own your space! This is your life! Be you. There is one clear urgency in your life that you must never neglect, and that is — you must be yourself.

You deserve honesty. You deserve transparency. You deserve someone who respects you enough to never lie to your heart. You deserve appreciation. You deserve loyalty. You deserve someone who would never abuse your trust. You deserve love. You deserve someone who would still be there for you even when everyone else has walked away. You deserve someone who’s REAL. Never settle for less.

Ever notice how what you have a difference or a disability, the looks you get or people think of you as an hero just because you have a disability?   I get it a lot.   Its not right;  just because we have a disability doesn’t mean we are heroic.   We were born with it or something happened we have a disability.  To be a hero is more than just being disabled or because we are different,  a hero is someone who always puts others first!

I have not been writing a lot lately;  I’m sorry I have been going through some things, and I haven’t been wanting to write.  But when you are depressed or going through something hard writing it out,  is one thing that can really help.  I don’t have depression that bad to where I need help I just need to write about it in my journal and let time help me to get through it.   I know it is not that easy for some of you,  but maybe it could help you some.

My prayer today is to become more mindful of my personal actions. What motivates me to do what I do and to say the things I do to others? I often dismiss my actions because of stress or anger but the people I hurt along the way do not dismiss what I’ve said or done. Every action and every word carries a consequence. Every person has stress and every person has anger. I would not like to be someone’s target and I ask for the grace to become more mindful not to harm others just because I am having a bad day. — Caroline Myss
