Note: I wrote this article last summer! I think it was a good one and definitely worth a repeat! Hope you enjoy! ❤
Sometimes the lessons we need to learn in life have to be painful- it is like we will not get it through our thick heads (MY THICK HEAD) unless it causes some sort of pain, anger, frustration! Recognizing that we are in the midst of a lesson sure makes it a lot easier to get through! Of course on the flip side of that is- if we do not recognize it as a lesson, well that makes the pain all the worse!!
In the past I have had a hard time with validation from loved ones; friends and family alike. And I know a lot of you out there experience this same type of problem. It took me years to let it all go and realize I do not need validation from anyone but God. And for you who are non-believers, you still only need validation for YOU by YOU…right? At least this is the way I see it- because unless we see it this way we are always going to be expecting things we will not necessarily get!
Not all of us are fortunate enough to be surrounded by people who actually can get out of their own little bubble long enough to truly encourage, support, or even notice what is happening in our lives. AND WE CAN’T LET THAT DEFINE US! Because IF WE DO then WE are defined by frustration, anger, sadness, feeling devalued, feelings of “not being enough”…..all of that! That type of stinkin thinking will get us nowhere in life!
Our feelings may be justified, but we need to let it go anyway! It is not serving US and it certainly will not allow us to serve anyone else!
So let it go my dears! Let it go!
It is funny….my theme words for 2015 (vision board) are Courage and Faith….seems it should have had a theme phrase… I seem to be saying “let it go” a lot this year!!
2015 the year of “letting it ALL go!” That which does not serve ME, or HIM, will not serve others! And that is my goal! To serve others……
