What do you believe?  About yourself?  About life?  About love?  Melody Beattie has taught me so much through her book:  Journey to the Heart.  If you believe that you have to fight your way through this world, you will....If you believe that God's love surrounds you, it does!  If you value yourself enough to take good care of yourself, you will. 

Surround yourself with positive people, loving people, and beautiful things!  Absorb the beauty of this world:  catch a sunrise or sunset and just savor a mother duck with her baby ducklings cross a pond....plant your garden, water your flowers and watch them grow!

My mom used to live by the saying:  BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED!  It's true!  We are each growing and changing every minute!!!  Allow yourself to blossom by giving away your friendship and love....find someone who really needs a visit from a friend and go!  Don't is all we have.

Melody teaches that our beliefs about what we deserve and who God is will change as we journey through this adventure called life!  Start that journey and BELIEVE in yourself, life, and love!!!  It is all around you, IF you will open your eyes and your heart!!!

Mutuality...hmmm....what does that mean in a relationship?  Whether it is a friendship, work,  or love relationship, mutuality implies that there is reciprocation..... a collaborative effort.......interdependency.  

Wouldn't that be nice to have?  If you think so, why not offer your half and see what happens?  Yes, sometimes, you do get hurt in a relationship, but seeking this type of level of mutuality in any relationship is work trying to find!  

Try it - you might like it!!!

Empathy....can you sense the emotions of those around you?  Can you feel what they are feeling?  Does your intuition allow you to share the emotions of those special people in your life?  Being able to instinctively understand other people's feeling is an incredible gift.....powerful.....wonderful and very uplifting!  Try to learn to have empathy for others.  It is deeper than sympathy.  Empathy allows you to find just the right words as just the right time for someone who may be going through a very traumatic episode in their lives or an incredibly joyful time in their life!  Share in their tears....share in their joy!  Give others the gift of your empathy for them - it will enhance your relationships on many different levels and enhance your ability to offer others support they may never have experienced before on their journey!!!!!
