Morning Affirmation

I needed to hear this message, this morning! So many times {ok the majority of my last 20 years!} I’ve struggled with my worth because of my vertigo. My vertigo costed me 10 years of extreme anxiety and crippling independence.

I doubted I would feel worthy of a nice loyal guy (which also doesn’t define you.. A significant other!). I doubted I could feel more than a single mom statistic struggling in life.

Life has aligned my experiences as they were meant to happen.

Today, our gift of presence is enough of a reason to feel valued and loved… It IS the simple reason to be good to ourselves.

Being is enough 💜

Stay Safe, Speak Life, and Spread Kindness 🍃

Ship Goals 💙

I can’t begin to emphasize the value of this simple phrase. Every single relationship needs this in order to grow!

Unfortunately, so many of us don’t have it!! If you are anything like me, you’ve delt with this frustrating lack of acknowledgement.

What do I mean? How is acknowledgment involved in the confrontation process? I would express my thoughts; and, it would fall on deaf ears. They might have heard me…;but, their minds were busy planning their defense. They were formulating their version of what happened.. righteously, justifying how their behavior wasn’t wrong.. They were doing everything but LISTENING TO me.

Is it their fault? YES…. HOWEVER, Here’s my thoughts! When one feels a need to defend him/herself, it’s due to behavior stemmed from ridicule as a child. They received little to no acknowledgement of their thoughts and opinions from the adults in their lives. They grew up without acceptance. They didn’t have conversations where they felt heard. They might not even understand that all of this is ” a thing”.. An important component to maturity and adulthood.

Sadly, that vicious cycle continues as long as we let it.

Today, I’m going to try and brake that chain.

FIRST: Your feelings matter.

AND {here’s the tough part} the thoughts, ideas, and opinions of those in your life.. matter too. Regardless of how YOU feel about THEIRS, they are valid.. And they are real to them.

So what is the answer? Maybe give this a try.

The first step to reconciliation is actively listen.

1. Repeat what you heard the other person say.

Then,

2. Verbalize that you acknowledge and hear what he/she has said.

3. Then, decide on a resolution that works for the both of you.

Respect.. Communication.. Acknowledgement… Acceptance… These elements develope through healthy childhoods. They develop through practice. patience… And love…You’d also be surprised with how quickly a situation diffuses once someone feels heard.

I can tell you, it took me a great deal of my adult life to feel comfortable with confrontation. I would always run (literally!!) from it… Every day is a chance to do better. Every second is a choice to be better.

So when someone tells you how they feel, listen, accept, and acknowledge it. It’s real to him or her. Respect that.. And try to find a solution so it doesn’t keep happening.

Here’s to a healthier year 🙂

Wednesday’s Word of Wisdom

People will never meet you on YOUR page. You have to accept that they meet you where THEY are.

– Nova

…..

….

What does that mean? Imagine you’re in a book club. This month, you are assigned The 5 Wishes of Mr. Murray McBride. You have 30-31 days to begin and finish the entire book.

Let’s say you, me, Anne Frank, and Shakespeare planned to meet for brunch and discuss the story, so far. As we get situated, and beginning ordering drinks with pastries, You ask, what page has been your stop?

I’m on page 51. You are midway through 184. Miss Frank is only page 205. Mr Shakespeare is completely finished.

We’re all reading at our own pace. We’re all going through the book with our own personal experiences, thoughts, side note, footnotes, exc.

Now.. imagine Miss Frank comes to me completely livid because she had a circumstance in her life that was super similar to one in the story. I’m empathetic because it’s painful.. but her expectations of my support and comfort will only further upset her… Because I’m not in that chapter. I didn’t live what she did. I’m not in the same place, on the same page as she is. My support and comfort is limited by the lack of personal experience.

When people walk into our lives, they’re operating in the ways, with the beliefs, from their experiences.. They’re not mind readers. They’re not meant to be. They can’t possibly relate to every aspect of your life. You can’t expect them too. They only know what they know.. And that’s all they can possibly offer.

It’s up to you, to understand and accept that fact. This isn’t wrong for you or them. It’s just the way life works.

Have patience. Give grace. Communicate effectively. Be honest and open. Don’t expect more from a stranger than what you yourself could’ve give.

Until next time,

Nova Namastè

Post Holiday

The onset is near,

Snowy,

Cold and

Dreadful

Post holiday.

Cloudy sky,

Stuck inside,

So little left to do,

Day in

Begging for the

Day out

Cycle to stop.

Fighting for

The demise

Of Winter..

And then, it happens.

– Nova Namastè


Nothing lasts forever, my friends. As we fall further into this cold time of year, my hope is we’d support each other. We’d listen and embrace simple conversation. The moments we feel like someone is here, like someone cares, the heaviness tends to lift.. a little. None of us are alone. All of our lives matter.

With technology at our finger tips, we always have an opportunity to make an impact. Let’s use this gift for good. Let’s extend the warmth of what love is.. and allow this session to pass.
