My gift for your today is another quote from the great Lady O!
It talks about discovering what you love and then offering it up to the universe as a form of service and trusting that the energy of the universe will lead you to where you need to go.
It all about timing ....AND trusting and believing in that timing because things doesn't always happen when we want them to OR how we want them to.
But there is a purpose for all.
The bad and the good.
My advice for you is to not concentrate so much on always being the teacher,
but learn how to be TEACHABLE.
And the Universe can be the greatest teacher of all!!!
Most people want to skip that step and I don't understand why.
You must first be the student before you become the master.
This blog has been a labor of love of mine since the beginning. I have always loved to write I just never thought I was very good at it. Until, like Ms. O says, I discovered what I love. In my case what I loved to write about, which has become this thing you are reading called Breaking The Shell.
Once I found passion in writing the words began to POUR out of me like you wouldn't believe.
The Universe has most certainly guided me.
To the point that sometimes I don't even feel like these are my words that I am writing.
They are just entrusted to me from the Universe as a vessel to relay them to the people.
I feel truly blessed with this gift I have been given with this blog
In many ways this has been a gift I gave myself. Please do not wait for someone to give you a chance to do what you love. Go out and start to create it for yourself.
Whatever it may be.
I'm gonna keep it simple today. I came across this quote a few days again and it really spoke to me. It is the main reason I started this blog.
Imagine a world where we are all following our light and our passion.
Where we all wake up each day because we are grateful to be alive.
It is my wish for you and all mankind.
I'm not saying go and quit your day job!
We all have needs that need to be meet.
Food, clothing, and shelter...
Its about finding that thing that brings you joy
The thing that lights you up and makes you feel happy.
Find your light and pursue it in whatever way you can.
This blog has been a big source of light for me.
What will yours be?
Finding out what that thing is, is one thing
But pursing it takes courage.
If you haven't been able to find the courage yet...I hope that one day soon you do.
But know this...Its already there...within you...waiting to be called forward!
If Someone Says, "You Complete Me"...RUN! by Whoopi Goldberg is one of the best books on modern relationships I have ever read. It is full of practical advice about breaking away from the expectations society and culture places on us regarding romantic relationships. Instead the book urges you to make your own rules about what you want and what works best for you when I comes to the people you choose to let in your life.
Throughout the book there are exercises aimed at helping you achieve clarity about what you want and need in a partner, and how to not settle for anything less. The book urges the reader to not fall into society or culture traps that say "you should be this", or "you should be that" but instead take the time to learn about what YOU really want.
It all starts with a list.
What are the things you want in a relationship?
*Humor-If you don't know how to make or take a joke we just wont work. Period. Life can be really crazy. Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is just stop and have a good laugh. Life, and relationships can be a little easier when both you and your partner have a sense of humor about it.
*Honesty-This is a big one for me! But honestly can make people very uncomfortable. I think its because sometimes we would rather live an illusion then face actual reality. But if your honest in your relationships then you can fix them if they are not working for you.
*Flexibility- I'm not talking about physical flexibility. I want someone who is flexible in their thinking and not close minded. Someone who is open to trying and experiencing new things.
*An Adult- I don't want to date a child. This isn't really an age thing. Some people "become" an adult at 18. Some are still trying to grow up at 50. I want someone who's grown and matured enough to know how the world works. Someone who knows themselves and what the want from life.
*Independence-This is another big one. I want someone who is not dependent on me emotionally or financially. Just basic things like a job and a car. I really don't care what the job is, you just have to have one. Also I like my own independence and my partner has to be cool with that and support that. I do not need to spend every single moment of every single day with my partner. It doesn't mean I don't love for them. It just means that sometimes I have to do me.
*A fully formed person- I do not complete you. You do not complete me. We are already complete and we are going to share that completeness with each other because...
I complete me!
Now try coming up with a list of your own.
Name 5 things you want in a relationship...1,2,3,4,5
Name 5 things you can not tolerate in a relationship...1,2,3,4,5
Chances are if you actually take the time to do this, think about what you want in a relationship vs. what you do not want, chances are you might begin to see some old unhealthy patters fade away and find yourself being lead to a relationship that actually works and is good for you.
See what happens...
