Romancing Your Soul

One of my favourite reading time : and

“There was a time I refused to take the actions I knew were best for me, and in the long run, for everyone concerned. I refused because I thought myself a failure if I gave up. So I stayed in a relationship long after the lessons I needed to learn from that person and circumstance were over. I was stuck by the excuses that I could somehow make it work, or get the other person to change, or that I just could not break the commitment I made. I bought the fear and guilt based rationalizations until the day I realized I was suffering greatly and everyone around me was too. Not just because of the negative relationship but because we were not taking the actions we knew in our heart were best. 

Too often we stay in negative situations for all the wrong reasons. If we know deep in our heart it is, and has been, time to go then we need to seriously and honestly look at the excuses, fear, and guilt we are allowing to stop us from doing what needs to be done. We also must remember that our actions serve as examples for others. Do we honestly want the people we say we love to continue to endure what we are enduring? Do we want them to put aside self-love and respect because they do not have the courage to love themselves more by removing themselves from a continuously negative situation? Do we really want to show them how little we respect ourselves by choosing to remain in our suffering rather than choosing to free ourselves?

Often we think we are wrong for leaving. We see it as giving up. We need to remember that when a relationship has run its course, we know it beyond doubt in our heart. So what makes us wrong is not leaving but continuing to subject ourselves to the negative, to the suffering.

Love is courageously doing what we must to care for ourselves and for others. Yes, moving on hurts. But the pain is bearable by knowing that doing what needs to be done to end to our suffering will, in the end, be best for everyone involved. Even if the other people involved do not change. We have changed ourselves by bringing a higher level of awareness by refusing to continue making negative contributions to a relationship while calling it love.” –Blessings, Regina

Stop binging N Start blogging

I must admit it was quite hilarious when this morning a very dear friend of mine posted on my wall to stop my feasting at work, posting pics of food, inciting my fb friends rather – i should stop dawdling and start blogging.. I guess its human nature to take things for granted and I have started to do the same with my blog –  “Oh! It’s Ok I will blog tomorrow with something better and guess what? That tomorrow becomes 2 weeks before i actually do something about it … So thank you Zeeee.. for giving me the gentle reminder!!

On that note :

“Friends are hard to find. In a lifetime you get only a few. And when you find them, you always know them by sight and heart alone, you always grow a little bit taller in your soul, and you know you have been blessed just to know them”.

I found this quite cute and hilarious….

When Joann Moser’s 8-year-old daughter complained that her 2 year old brother was taking things from her room at night, so Joann told her daughter to just lock her bedroom door. Big sis did so, but things still went missing. As Moser recounted to Huffington Post she and her husband found it hard to believe that their 2-year-old was able to take things from a locked room and set up a camera to solve the mystery. The resulting video, below, is both funny and amazing!!
