Today I would like to say a little about an inspiration I received this morning before I made it out of bed. I was thinking about a long standing conflict in my life that I had been avoiding. I took some time and prayed about my conflict, and faced that situation for the first time. This is the message that came:
“Freedom means looking at your life experiences as lessons and not as stumbling blocks. They are ladders and not inconvenient blocks placed in your way. To climb the ladder of learning is to think about your situation without emotional attachments, and ask, ‘”What can I learn from this situation today and how can it affect the way I respond to another situation in the future'”. If you want the freedom to be the person you were created to be, follow this frame of mind. This will free us of many emotional bagages, and give us fresh eyes to view our lives!
In order to love others, you must first love yourself. In order to love yourself, you MUST look at yourself ‘wholisticly’ and not just focus on your strengths and successes. This is impossible and you will secretly hate yourself without even realizing it. This will in turn affect your love and acceptance of others.
