This Forgiveness Friday we focus on “knowing who you are.” Knowing who you are involves an awareness of your past, your present and how you plan on moving towards your future. Often we live our life forward, yet we only can understand it backwards. Reflecting on past obstacles, challenges, dilemmas and oversights are all part of growing your self-knowledge of who you are. When you’re able to reflect on your past, you are able to understand yourself the full aspect of your personal growth and development. It’s important to set aside time each day to reflect on things that you’ve done, said and plan on doing or saying. When you’re conscious of your thoughts, words and deeds you’re able to affiliate positive change towards future events. Truth be told, many people do not know who they are and rarely take the time to self-reflect. Forgive yourself this and you take the time to get to know yourself. You may be surprised at who you come to find yourself to be.
Today we reflect on the actions of misunderstandings and are in need of more healing and forgiveness. Misunderstandings are the direct result of a lack of ability to properly communicate the human need for connection. The human connection is more vital in our current times than ever before. Now, we need to express ourselves in a way that will affirm our future. Our youth need guidance and to be affirmed about their ability to be successful. There needs to be a conversation about equality, rights, and the comprehension of fairness. Now is a pivotal moment in history to outline a path engraved with wisdom and forgiveness. All of these attributes will provide structure for personal awareness and leadership. The key notion to take from the actions of the past is to realize that it is important to be more in the most volatile moments of our experiences. It is time to come up higher, be more, react less, and extend understanding for deeper connections to that, which is broken.
All the Best,
The ability to visualize your self in different situations will assist you in transforming energy from negative to positive instantly. No matter what I may feel, what I may see or what others may do – I know and trust and believe in GOD and in what GOD is doing in and for me for my greater good. When I feel the least and see the least, that is when I know GOD is doing the most in my life.
Are you frustrated and in-patient? Why is that? Do you feel that you should be in a position or financial place that you feel you are not currently? Why is that? Take some time to realize that you have “gifts” that you can do naturally. Instead of being and doing what you think you should do, take some time to think about what makes you truly happy.
For a while, I thought that success was a corner office in a high rise building, with a ton of employees answers to me. After taking some time to embrace my “true self,” I realized that I have had many job opportunities where a “high rise” office was foreseeable. While pursing that goal, I found myself with an emptiness that wasn’t fulfilled. After taking some to sitt with my thoughts and feelings and realized that I loved to teach people how to do things to make their lives better. Teaching is one of my natural gifts, I can remember as far back as 5 years old standing up in front of my Barbie Dolls teaching a class lecture about how to teach people. My core being is to teach. What is your core being? Ask yourself a few questions to get started:
When am I truly happy professionally?
When was the last time I did those things?
How can I embrace the “true being” of myself and grow professionally?
Set a goal and work toward it.
When you believe in something, love, desire, and want it, you can create it more quickly. One thing you have to do is not allow the emotions of others to drain you. As you calm your emotions, you will be able to handle other people’s strong emotions.
When you think about it emotions are how you know whether you like or dislike something. Your emotions are the key to understanding your environment and how you choose to react to it. When you think about something on a continuum basis you allow it to come into your life faster than it would if you weren’t thinking of it. It isn’t something that can be controlled, unless you choose to do so. It is true. I can remember thinking about not wanting to have a bad day and in fact drawing situations to me that actually caused me to have a bad day. In the moment you are thinking about it, you don’t realize what you’re doing – unless you choose to understand what you’re doing.
You are affected by others and their emotions – whether it is a positive or a negative way. You choose what to transcend from others emotions. You are in total control of your emotions and what you absorb. The key is to calm yourself and not allow others emotions to become your emotions through default.
The ability to visualize your self in different situations will assist you in transforming energy from negative to positive instantly. You can enjoy every single bit of your life, even the difficult times. You have the authority to keep your joy and have peace in any situation. The more truth you know, the more you can keep your faith in difficult times.
