We must break the cycle of hate

A recent tragedy has struck a nerve across the entire country and beyond and it's difficult to formulate a response. We've made so much progress as a nation yet here we are… again. What will it take for us to show love, compassion and empathy to all our brothers and sisters even when we don't share the same beliefs or skin color. We must hold our government accountable to take action to protect those who follow the rules of society. We must work tirelessly to educate our youth in the ways of love, acceptance, patience and forgiveness in order to end the cycle of judgement and hate. We must make an effort to get to know our neighbors. We must give others the benefit of the doubt before jumping to conclusions of learned stereotypes. We must offer kindness and compassion to everyone we encounter. We must eliminate the idea that material wealth makes a person better than another with less. We must view a person despite their color, gender, age, income, job, degree or whom has a difference of opinion as our equal. We are born into this world innocent, unbiased and ready to love while being conditioned by our environment. Hate is instilled in a child through the observation of another's actions and words. Hate is fueled by ignorance and a closed mind and heart. Hate is driven by the ego. The solution starts with the foundation and the foundation is built by our environment. Morals and values must be defined early on in life and we must all help hold each other accountable. We can no longer continue to look the other way. We can no longer remain quiet. It is true that it takes a village to raise a child and if we all do our part, we can put an end to the cycle of hate and violence and create unified communities across the globe.

Teach others how to respect you

Don’t delay start today

Change happens by committing to take one small step each day towards your goals followed by daily disciplined action. What have you thought about doing but have not yet achieved? Improve your physical or mental health, eat healthier, pursue a college degree, learn a language, write a book, start a business, find your life partner, invest your money, purchase properties to rent, leave a toxic relationship, travel the world or anything your heart desires. Ignore those negative outside influences and surround yourself with friends and family who support you. Join clubs or groups that are specific to what you desire to achieve. Turn off the television and devote one hour each day towards taking action such as researching online, journaling a plan, chatting with someone already doing what you desire, reading related books or visit related places that inspire and motivate you. Get your mind focused on your goal every single day through meditation by visualizing yourself achieving your goals and feel the passion, joy and excitement. I challenge you right now to take the first step towards the rest of your life and you will be so grateful one year from now.

It’s time to get honest with yourself

7 Rules Of Life

Love is what opens our eyes to what can’t be seen

View this post on Instagram

Love yourself first and the world around will suddenly become more beautiful. It's all about aligning your energy with your truth and accepting yourself for who you are. Everything you need is inside you. I've discovered over the past year through daily meditation and my evening walks, how much I appreciate and enjoy the small things. It's so easy to notice the clouds, a flower, a bee buzzing around my head, the breeze, the different types of trees, the sunrise and sunset and just how amazing it is that we're carried 9 months inside a woman, all while living on a rock spinning through the galaxy avoiding any collision with other objects in space. Let go of attachments, allow people to come and go and let life flow without forcing anything. The truth is we have no control and once we accept this, we realize life is happening for us. We're here to learn, grow, love and experience the highs and lows of this journey. Life is such a miracle and so fleeting. We must choose to be empathetic and have an open heart towards all living things because we're all just trying to survive and do the best we can with what we've learned and what we've got.

Our thoughts dictate our actions

View this post on Instagram

Don't worry be happy – Bobby Mcferrin It really is true that our thoughts control our actions and mindset. We have the ability to not allow our thoughts to dictate our behavior. This takes discipline, awareness and self control. In my experience, an excellent practice to teach you these traits is meditation. You will learn to look within and own your breathe and the present moment, while learning to be aware of your thoughts through observation and nonreaction. Soon you will notice how much more patient and understanding you've become in response to things that previously might have triggered an out of control emotional reaction. This type of growth will help you to be more tolerant and accepting of what the universe puts in front of you. You will reduce anxiety you may have had and this will allow you to reopen your heart and heal any unhealed traumas you are still carrying with you. The release of these toxic energies will create a flood of emotions which are a sign that you are healing and connecting with your inner truth. This can be a frustrating and overwhelming stage, but once you reach the other side, life becomes more meaningful, peaceful and what matters the most becomes the focus of all your energy. It's a difficult but necessary journey that will have you smiling with gratitude for the opportunity to evolve into the greatest version of yourself. Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right – Henry Ford If you need support, guidance or someone to simply listen, send me a DM and let's start the conversation which could lead you on your own journey to becoming the greatest version of you!

We don’t always get what we want

View this post on Instagram

We all deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and be willing to accept when mistakes are made. If we allow mistreatment to continue, then we are dishonoring our self-worth. Respect starts within and is projected outward onto those you encounter. Some may choose to test your boundaries and discover that you don't have any. It's up to you to stand up for yourself and speak your truth with an open heart in a loving manner. You might have to accept that this person no longer serves a purpose in your life and it's time to move on. Reflect on if this person empowers you to be yourself and supports you with love and non judgment. If you suspect you are being used or manipulated, don't delay and communicate how this is unacceptable. Accept that they are in a different place energetically and you are no longer aligned. Release them with love and empathy and be grateful for the opportunity to share energy and space with them. Refocus your energy on doing what's best and true to your heart and take the time you need to grieve the loss of this person in your life. Learn to be alone and content until you are ready to receive who is meant for the next chapter. If you need support, guidance or someone to simply listen, send me a DM and let's start the conversation which could lead you on your own journey to becoming the greatest version of you!
