Day 7

On day 7 of the #365GratitudeChallenge

I am grateful for the future.

I am particularly grateful for the endless possibilities that exist.

If a door doesn’t open for you,

Chances are, it’s not your door!

Be open to explore the multitude of possibilities that will be presented to you.

Remember: If you always do, what you’ve always done,

You’ll always get, what you’ve always got!

Take a chance today!

You never know ✨

Stay Warm,

Day 2 #365GratitudeChallenge

Ekaaro, Peace & Grand Rising!

I am grateful for Life!!!

Today I am grateful for the gift of forgiveness.

To forgive does not mean that the “incident ” never happened; it merely means that you’re not allowing it to control or hold you back. It never means that it’s okay.

To forgive or be forgiven is very healing.

It allows you to start the process of moving beyond the issue.

Let go so that you can grow,

May you find the strength necessary to let go ✨✨✨

✨🕊 Chè🕊✨

Heal thy self

Ekaaro , Peace & Grand Rising!

I am grateful for Life!

We want the best for ourselves,

We’re willing to do what’s necessary to attain it.

Keeping your Mind, Body, Soul & Spirit healthy is of the utmost importance.

Take the time necessary to heal thyself; do not over work, over eat nor overwhelm yourself.

Take Life in stride. Never judge your accomplishments by what you haven’t or ate yet yo do.

Celebrate your victories as they come.

May the tenacity & support necessary to succeed be bestowed upon you.

A favor filled day awaits✨✨✨

Enablers

GM World!

I hope today finds you all in great health & spirits!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of talking with someone who was so inspirational, they moved me to tears.

In our conversation they broke down to me how more often than not we think that some one is being irresponsible & we are partially to blame.
I couldn’t see how this was possible as everyone should be accountable for their own actions, or lack thereof.

We as friends always want to help our friends in their times of need. We want to comfort them when they’re in pain, dry their tears when they cry, be their backbone when they need it.

What are they doing to help themselves? What are you allowing them to accomplish on their own? Ask yourself that question.

If you had someone to rescue you everytime the going got rough, would you able to weather any storm that came your way? Or would you expect an umbrella to be opened at the 1st raindrop?

Often times we care so much for others we don’t want to see them struggle so we swoop in and rescue them at the first sign of distress.
While most appreciate it, a lot begin to take it for granted. They act as if its your DUTY to help them.

When you continually come to their rescue they don’t have to become responsible. They have you to do it for them. If I had some one to rescue me I’d love it, but alas I don’t.

I know that I personally have been an enabler for way too long. I thought that by sparing others from stressing unnecessarily would aid in their growth. I was wrong, all it did was make them rely on the fact that I’d come to their aid.

I’ve even made excuses for their lack of accountability. Siting the fact that they’re going through a tough time & everyone deserves a break, that they’re just misunderstood.

I readily offered a litany of excuses in their defense. Their issues became mine, like I don’t have enough of my own to deal with.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t pay it forward whenever possible, but make wise informed decisions.

Then there are those that genuinely deserve to be helped. They are trying as hard as they might but the odds are stacked against them, yet they keep pressing on, determined to make it through.

They take nothing & noone for granted. They appreciate any kind words, gestures & support, be it moral or financial that comes their way.

Know that there are issues they must address themselves.
“It is said that what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.”

Sometimes the best way to be a friend is just by listening and or offering moral support.

I refuse to be an enabler anymore.
If you aren’t willing to help yourself,
Please tell me why should I?
Just something to think about…

Though we may have the best intentions at heart, enabling stunts ones’ growth.
Most learn from experience.
Afford them that opportunity.

Live, Laugh, Love & Learn
All the best,

I’ll remain hopelessly bipolar,
Che’ xoxo

Reality

GM World! Here we are 1 week into the New Year & I am yet to experience a Bipolar Meltdown! Yay Me!
As many of you know I experience frequent bouts of anxiety, irrational instances & overall craziness! 😉

So far so good! What I am doing differently is that I am accepting responsibility for the things that occur in my life. Though at times it may indeed be a bitter pill to swallow, if I don’t do it who will?

Saying that to say, with my new found sense of accountability I have realized that inadvertently we often enable our loved ones to treat us in a manner that isn’t conducive to what we deserve. We make excuses for their behaviors or lack there of.

When we do that not only are we doing them a huge disservice but we are also enabling them, then we complain about them and put ourselves in the roll of the victims.
Had we not enabled them they would not think that they could getaway with th misbehavior.

Ask yourself, are you part of the problem or the solution. Have a heart to heart with yourself. If you can’t keep it real with yourself, how can you keep it real with others?

In closing I’ll leave you with this:
When you settle; you are being short changed in more ways than one.
What are you worth?

Peace & divine guidance to you all,
Find favor in every venture,
I’ll be hopelessly bipolar forever 😉
Che’ xoxo

In tune

GM World! It’s Day 2 of 2011, as I begin this day I am inundated with thoughts of health, wealth, life & love.

I’ve often wondered why most people feel the need to wait till something is broken before they fix it. If you notice that your car is over heating why wait till it won’t start before getting it checked out?

By the time it won’t start it may have already been damaged beyond repair. Had you had it checked out when it started overheating you may have been able to save yourself the costly repairs you now have to incur to replace whatever part that’s NOW irreparable.

Warning signs are in place to alert you to the fact that something is amiss. These precautionary measures are not put in place as a means of decoration, rather they are warning mechanisms.

Your body is no different. Some days you don’t necessarily feel sick but you just don’t feel right. There is something amiss. Be in tune with your body, know the warning signs & signals.
If something doesn’t feel right, chances are something isn’t.

Same goes for relationships.
Be it business, platonic, familial or romantic.
Why wait till its irretrievably broken to try to work on it?

Don’t wait until its too late.
Be proactive about your health & well being.
The life you save may be your own!
Get in tune with your self,
Foster & Nurture a better you!

Every journey begins with the very 1st step!

Here’s to a better you!
Live your best life!
People are dying for second chances, should you?

Just my 2 cents 🙂
Enjoy your day & find favor in all you do,
Che’ xoxo
