Food For Thought Friday

💡 What have you learned about yourself that you are committed to improving?

💡 You don’t need permission to choose you and what’s better for your well-being.

💡 Life will give you experiences to help you with your evolution. It knows what you need when you need it, and when you’re prepared to receive it.

💡 Whose speaking on your behalf? How accurate is their version of the things stated?

💡 Those on the sidelines are often more opinionated. Do you want a cheerleader or someone that really “gets” you?

💡 If you expect a lot, give a lot more.

💡 No matter how kind and loving you are, someone will find a reason not to like you. That’s ok. Do you.

💡 “No” is an underused word. Be bold enough to say it and know when to apply it to your life.

💡 Show respect whether earned or not.

💡 Leaning into vulnerability has its rewards.

Meditation

If you take an objective view of your mind, you’ll find that many thoughts drift through it. Meditation is an effective way to clear the mind and gain focus. There are many things you can focus on, various ways to meditate, and no time restraints as to how long you do so.

It’s difficult to hear the answers we seek during the daily hustle and bustle of our lives. Stepping back from the noise and activity allows us to listen humbly and quietly for guidance.

When you have something troubling you and desire to gain more clarity, say a prayer about the subject matter and meditate on it. The answer may not come immediately, but meditating on it will help relax you and release negative energy within you.
