Are you having a hard time living up to the expectations you’ve set for yourself? Think about your intentions. Are you trying? Do you have a desire to improve? Okay, know then that you will get there and give yourself credit for your attitude!
Take a minute to listen to this true story. Recently, a delightful friend of a friend admitted that she couldn’t stop nagging her husband and that “it’s hurting our marriage.”
My friend asked her what she was nagging him about, but she couldn’t really isolate a reason. My friend said why don’t you just stop then? She said she’d tried so many times that she’d given up hope already!
Sound suspiciously familiar?
Well the next thing, my friend said was “What about today…when he gets home today, are you going to nag him?”
Her friend started waffling and said that although she never planned to nag, it just happened.
My friend repeated gently again: “But today, when he gets home are you going to nag him or are you going to create a different story? You can stop now.”
Her friend thought about it and in a heartbeat it hit her that she had a choice! “I am not going to nag him today.” Then she wrote the words STOP NOW in bold and posted them in her kitchen where a lot of the nagging usually occurred.
That was the day, she stopped. She was supportive and loving instead, without a drop of nag. She didn’t stop nagging every day forever and ever, however she stopped nagging on many of them and it has made all the difference in her relationship.
So what do you wish you could stop doing? Ok. Stop today. Stop now.
Every time you succssfully stop and do something better, treat yourself in a wonderfully positive way. Take that steamy, hot, bubble bath you were promising yourself. Buy that delicious mango and share it with someone, making both of you happy! Take yourself out on a date in the middle of your week and watch the sun set. Buy fresh flowers. Create more beauty and love in your surroundings. This will remind you of a what a precious soul you are!
Aloha Lovely Soul,
Thank you so much for coming to visit me at Enlightened Answers.!
I really love it when souls find benefit in what I'm writing.
These writings are based on daily spiritual study and meditation which when applied in life create a truly valuable way of life for the present and future lives as well.
It has been such a wonder to be tucked away in the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for 27 years. The past 20 have been on the oldest and most serene island of the Hawaiian chain~the northern most island of Kauai.
Most people don't realize that Hawaii is made up of a chain of seven islands, sometimes related to the seven chakras of the human body. As Kauai sits at the top of the chain; it is often called the "crown" of the Hawaiian islands.
Who am I? I am a spiritual elder and practitioner of Raja Yoga Meditation. I am a healer of hearts because I have surrendered to the Almighty who has healed mine. I offer Spiritual Empowerment sessions that assist with building trust, faith, and strength in the Self.
For each of the past eight years, I've had the wonderful fortune to have traveled to northern India to the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University on Mt. Abu, Rajasthan.
This wonderful place is also called Madhuban, which means Forest of Honey. It is a pilgrimage place dedicated to the Remembrance of God; a place to attend classes, a place to meditate by yourself or with many others; and a wonderful place to commune with like-hearted souls. It is an exceptional container reserved for souls who wish to live according to the highest codes of conduct. It is a place designed for souls to have a deep, rich, and loving meeting with the Supreme Soul. My annual journeys here have enriched my life immeasurably, beyond words.
Who am I? I am a peaceful soul who honors the peaceful soul of you. I am a lover of Truth and hope that you are able to glean deep soul answers in these writings which I , who once who was so lost and who is now found, shares with you.
Take the jewels that touch you, make them your own, and share them, for giving and receiving is a good part to play at this time of transformation of souls and of the earth.
