So grateful for all of you that take the time to read our blog’s. It really means so much. I woke up this morning to an email informing me that someone, who had read my blog about my son's addiction, had reached out and let me know that they had gone through something similar and wanted to give me information on where they went for treatment. Even offered to contact the facility and put in a word for him. If you could have seen my face and the deep breath that I took. That one statement breathed new life into me. new hope. Yesterday I had no options, today, if he calls, I have one. So THANK YOU!
See, this is what life is supposed to be about. Souls walking this earth, learning lessons together and helping each other out. I don’t know history very well, so I don’t know where exactly it all went wrong, but I sure wish we could get back to loving one another and helping each other instead of beating each other down even more.
I met an amazing woman a few years ago, Mildred Landis, if you’re ever in San Diego you should look her up. You won’t regret it. I’ve never in my life met someone that LOVES so completely. Everyone she comes in contact with is immediately cloaked in her loving energy. It was an honor to spend so much time with her. I learned, and continue to learn, so much from her over the past few years. She taught me that LOVE truly is the only thing that matters. I could never imagine being anywhere near as wonderful as this beautiful soul, but I certainly strive to be everyday of my life. I do my best everyday to not judge anyone but myself. Thanks to her, I have even eased up on judging myself so harshly.
You see, we can’t control everything that happens to us…. but we have complete control over how we allow ANYTHING to affect us. If you are mad, angry, sad, happy, joyful…. it’s because YOU make a choice to be. I know that is difficult for some of you to hear, trust me, for many years I was part of the “everything that happens in my life is someone else’s fault” club. When I finally realized that I have the control, that my feelings are truly my own and my responsibility, wow what a heart opener. The empowerment that I felt for the first time in my life was so incredible. Now, this was no easy feat, I stumbled quite often and still stumble today. I get right back up a hell of a lot faster than I did in the beginning and it is so empowering knowing that it is all in my control.
People may say and do things that are “maddening” but they can’t “make me mad”, that is my choice. They can say things that are “hurtful”, but they only hurt if I choose to allow it to. I know sometimes the people around me may think I’m a little crazy, they come to me with these very emotional stories of something that happened and my response is usually, “Send them Love” and they look at me like, “are you for real right now? Did you HEAR what I just said to you?” Inside I giggle a little because I remember feeling that same way a few years ago, but I promise you…. standing in your power and not giving it away to ANYONE!!! That my friends is the best feeling in the world because THAT is the feeling of truly LOVING and respecting the most important soul there is… YOU!!!!!
LOVE yourself completely and in return, those around you will feel nothing but LOVE!!!!!
