I have given up on my blog! No, I haven’t, but it really has been a long time. So much has happened blog people, so much. I could be anyone. I can do anything. I believe this. It has been so true for me lately.
But some days feel like it is just a bad day.
Then I read this, changed my perspective. Rather than pushing the bad day back, try to show strength. A dear friend of mine was having a bad day and it surprised me. How could she? She is human, we all are. We have bad days.
This jumped out at me too. Just remember you are more than what is happening right now. Always remember though the way you react does determine your character. It is a fine line and a fun balance. Heavenly Father Loves You.
And as I wonder what is going on in my life, who am I where am I going and does it matter; I find myself stalking old friends on Facebook where I ….honestly waste my time ….and then I find a treasure:
“9 Ways You May Unwittingly Deprive Yourself of Love and Fulfillment
1. YOU DON’T EXPRESS YOUR WHAT YOU DESERVE.
Refusing to express what you deserve virtually guarantees deprivation. Millions of people allow others to ignore, take advantage, and take them for granted because they will not speak up.
2. YOU ARE OVERLY FOCUSED ON OTHERS.
Focusing solely on the others at the expense of you is actually a disservice to yourself and others. It typically leads to resentment and emotional martyrdom.
3. YOU FEEL GUILTY WHEN YOU DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF.
Guilt or “selfish” feelings when you meet your own desires is a sign that you don’t believe you deserve to have them met, as if it were wrong.
4. YOU CAN’T TAKE COMPLIMENTS.
Not accepting compliments graciously (inside and out) is a way to deflect them, depriving yourself of being appreciated.
5. YOU ARE ATTRACTED TO EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE OR SELF-CENTERED PEOPLE.
A sure way to not to not connect is to attract emotionally unavailable or narcissistic people into your life. When you commit to these kinds of people, you set yourself up for a lifetime of emotional deprivation.
6. YOU EXPECT DISAPPOINTMENT.
Expecting disappointment keeps fulfillment at a distance. Going into situations anticipating disappointment becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
7. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WANT OR CANNOT DEFINE YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE.
This is so common! People usually don’t think of it this way, but not knowing what you want or even trying to figure it out is a way to avoid your purpose. Living with a sense of purpose brings meaning and fulfillment.
8. YOU SHY AWAY FROM INTIMACY.
When you avoid close relationships or shy away from deeper connections with people, you miss out on this fundamental contribution to happiness and fulfillment.
9. YOU CANNOT ENJOY THE MOMENT.
Letting go and having fun in the here and now is an important way to experience fulfillment and reduce stress. Staying in your head, remaining preoccupied or self-conscious robs you of the opportunity to enjoy your now.”
It just got me thinking, you know.
And I ramble and this might not make sense to anyone but :
Sometimes you live. Sometimes you just need to write.
–That’s all and good night.
