Sometimes...

 Seek Knowledge, find Wisdom, live your Truth!
Sometimes even the best intentions backfire.

Sometimes they blow up in your face.

Sometimes what is in our heart doesn't always come out of our mouth in such a way to convey our true feelings or intentions.

Sometimes we give meaning to things based on our own internal messages rather than the message that is being conveyed.

Sometimes even in the truest of intentions...

Others get hurt.

Offended.

Irritated.

And sometimes no amount of trying to "work it out"...

can work it out.

Sometimes

it works out best

to just let go.

This...

can be one of the hardest things to do

yet can be one of the best things to do

and often is the seed that will allow us to grow.

In the beginning of my journey I looked to the world and those in it to adjust and "make" me feel ok. 


I tried to "work things out", often taking responsibility for how others were feeling and the choices they made. 


I had a sense of responsibility to make others ok and that others would make me feel ok.


And recently I've had a couple of situations where I got to learn this lesson again....


that its not about what others do, think or say that makes me feel "ok'...


but its about me learning and knowing how to be ok...


when others aren't.

sometimes are all of the times that I am not aware. Awareness means that I am not so focused on my own experiences that I perceive that my perceptions are applicable to someone else; and then determine what the other person "really means." way too sensitive and not realistic...

Agreed:) Awareness is the key to learning to live beyond the limitation of the past for sure:)
