Learn to LOVE What You Have, Before You Lose It
LEARN TO LOVE WHAT YOU HAVE, BEFORE YOU LOSE IT!
It’s so easy to complain about how things aren’t showing up peachy keen, right?
I mean really, with your car always in the shop, your spouse or partner taking you for granted, and the fact that, whether they’re designer or “cheapies,” your sunglasses always seem to get lost or broken about every 6 to 9 months… there is sooo much grip about!!!
BUT… what you may not be aware of, is that it is your griping and complaining that is contributing to your experience of these things.
YEP! If you don’t love your car… partner… or even sunglasses, they are going to find away to leave your life or make you miserable until you change your perspective about them.
So, the next time you’re tempted to complain about what you have… try to remind yourself, it doesn’t always have to be there. (Good or Bad).
WEEKEND CHALLENGE :: If you’re in a relationship where you are in fear… fear of not being loved, fear of being abandoned… fear of giving someone 100% of yourself, only to get nothing in return… or scared to believe this person will love you back… try telling yourself a new story about the situation…
Here are some examples ::
- I know that I am a totally fun and easy person to love, and if I share that side of myself instead of the fearful one, those around me with respond positively.
- ____fill in the blank____ is first and foremost my friend, cares about me and has my best interest, and therefore is SAFE for me to love.
- I know that all relationships serve a purpose, and to get the most out of this one, I must put in my all.
- All relationships reflect my ideas, values, and beliefs back to me. Accordingly, I must give love, support, trust, and belief to my partner/friend, if that’s what I expect to experience in return.
