Lesson of the day

Sometimes a conscious decision to focus on God, is all it takes to hear a revelation from Him.
How to make that decision? say out loud "stop" and immediately start doing a mindfulness activity (I will post some of my own mindfulness techniques later)

Lesson of the day

Face a small fear with a positive attitude and trust that God will take care of you. The fear you have might not even materialize.

Lesson of the day

The closer you are to God, the shorter the time will be between you asking for your desires and they coming true.
Tip 1: Use that time as a measure to know how close you are to Him.
Tip 2: To get closer to Him, always be thankful for when the time was shorter than you expected.

Buy yourself flowers

When you are feeling rejected and unloved, turn to yourself.  Give yourself the love that you've been craving for.
A great way to do that is to buy yourself flowers. It sounds silly, but it worked for me.

Besides silly it can also be fun.
I had fun at the flower shop, pretending that I was buying them for someone else.
I looked at the options and asked myself "what would she like?".

While I was paying, the florist asked if I wanted to write a note.
I gladly accepted.
I had fun again writing myself some loving words.
When you are feeling sad, unloved or rejected, you know better than anybody else what you would like to hear.

It can also be a secret.
Nobody else in that flower shop knew that I was buying the flowers for myself.
It made the activity even more special and intimate.
As I crossed the street, smiling and holding the flowers on my hand, the feeling of "secret" and "special" continued.
Nobody else on that street knew that I was giving myself a wonderful gift.

Try buying yourself flowers one day, and see how much love you can give yourself :)

Lesson of the day

Lesson of the day: when you are clear on what you want, and you believe you can get it, you will not be afraid to ask for it.
