Do you ever feel like your knocking your head up against a wall? As you grow and shift your way of seeing things, learning knew tools to improve your way of thinking, as well as improving your attitude, you automatically want others to come along with you. You want the one's closest to you to improve their way of being, so that life can give them what they desire. And besides, this shift in perspective is a sure way to become more joyful and more content.
Following the light gives us such a grand perspective. It broadens our view. We then want to share the beauty that we now see with everyone we love!
I know how much I have helped myself and how my new way of living has improved my way of being, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, but I am not perfect. I am far from that! But some people, no matter how close they are to your heart, have their own life to live. Fear has a great pull on them and they would rather wallow in their pity, thrown from circumstance to circumstance trying to change everything around them, rather than do something about themselves!! It frustrates me as well as saddens me. It is not my way to badger them to live a more peaceful life, but I had enough of listening to their complaints. I don't want to hear their whining anymore! It sure sucks though, when you see them struggle. Sometimes it is extremely challenging to be able to see the Source within others when they continue to beat themselves up, judge and ridicule your way of living, and also repeat the same old negative patterns with an attitude of, "I'm set in my ways!"
Today I choose to move outward into the greater world and find new, wholesome, positive, loving and respectful relationships that are like-minded, that feed my soul. A large nourishing circle of friends that are positive, optimistic, appreciative and see the beauty in all things, is a family that I am building.
I've learned a great deal from the various relationships that I have encountered during my life and I am truly appreciative for them all. For I would not be who I am today without them. Although challenging during the events, they have made me a better person and I only want to continue this route. Life is grand! We see what we want to see. And sometimes in life we have to move on. So rather than focusing and listening to their whining trying to be understanding, and in a negative way lowering my vibration, I choose to shift my focus of attention.
