Why Seeing Your Challenges as OPPORTUNITIES is Love for Yourself and Others
Seeing your challenges as OPPORTUNITIES for making positive changes is Love for YOURSELF because you are enriching yourself by CHOOSING TO SEE new perspectives and CHOOSING TO MAKE changes to enable yourself to reach your goal.
You refuse to stagnate by going with the flow or the collective unreasonable and immoral group or maintaining a limited perspective.
Going with the collective unreasonable and immoral group is not love for yourself or humanity; it is building shame inside of you. You become ASHAMED for the unreasonable and immoral things you have chosen to do while maintaining your limited perspective, limiting your knowledge and wisdom.
Seeing your challenges as OPPORTUNITIES is Love for Humanity because by enriching yourself in positive ways you are making our world a better place for everyone.
Thus, when you can HONESTLY look back on your life WITHOUT REGRET because you have reasonably addressed your challenges and have reasonably eliminated those in your life who refuse to be honest, kind and moral CONSISTENTLY, then you have found Love.
Once you have found this love for yourself, you are able to love another because you want to be honest, kind and moral.
If you do not care about yourself and live with a lot of shame for the things you have chosen to do in your life, you are not ready to love another.
First you must learn to be honest and kind to yourself.
For example, you need to take good care of your body by eating well and exercising.
If this means learning how to cook so you don’t eat restaurant food often that has a lot of salt, fat and other unhealthy ingredients then you learn to cook. If this means changing your routine so you have time to exercise regularly then you do this too.
Being kind to yourself also means taking care of your mind because your body and mind go together. So, if you need to see a qualified therapist to address issues in your life like parental alienation or cutting or drinking then you do this.
If you don’t take care of yourself you are not able to take care of another or enrich them.
***You will only bring them your problems because you will just keep repeating your same mistakes. You need to understand what caused your issues and how to avoid them in the future.
***Life is one challenge after another. Wise people give themselves the mental and physical tools to address them by keeping both their mind and body healthy.
On that note, a friend a mine just gave me a book of poetry she loves and two beautiful shiny turquoise and malachite stones.
She told me she wanted me to have these stones because they have the energy to assist one who is bringing about positive changes by providing strength and tranquility. That was so thoughtful of her and I put the stones on each side of my desk so they surround me. They are beautiful and quite large so you can see the beautiful natural designs.
I remember we took a family trip to Sedona, Arizona and stood on the vortexes and went into some crystal and stone shops where the owners talked about the energy of stones and their meanings. Then we went to a mine and my Sons and Daughter picked out some beautiful stones for their rock collection. It was fascinating and fun too.
I just love Los Angeles because I seem to be attracted to very interesting people who share their knowledge and are very motivational and kind.
So, I hope you are encouraged to see your challenges as opportunities so you can look back on your life without regret so you are then able to spread your love in the world. Then you will find happiness and peace and have a lot of self esteem too.
