~ Some lessons are hard learned. Because faith springs hope eternal there is always optimism. Optimism sometimes turns a blind eye to the subtle queues. But it is never too late to recognize and regroup. It is what it is. Accept it…Adapt to it…and Most importantly, Keep It Moving!
~ Why do women need definitions and labels for everything, relationships specifically? When the definition and/or label doesn’t meet the requirement an ultimatum is issued? This, more often than not results in the man walking away, sometimes running. Self-sabatoge at its finest. This leads to another question…Are we as women ever satisfied?
I have been guilty of this same self-defeating behavior in my lifetime. I thought by him declaring it was “this” or “that” or by reassuring me the relationship was a priority for him, it would make me feel secure and happy. When in fact, it did not. That need to have the man in my life define our relationship, as opposed to living in the moment, is rooted deeply in insecurity. When will we allow ourselves to live in the moment and be content?
~ I am not surprised by how quickly I became bored with Twitter. It has suffered the same fate as Facebook. Does anyone remember Black Planet? Don’t front…you know you had an account too!! LOL
~ What do you do if you think a girlfriend’s man is lying to her about being married to or “involved” with another woman? NOTHING. Allow it to run its course. Most times she will not believe you. Good luck with that boo.
~ Faith and religion. I am in a strange place – maybe a turning point in my life that will determine, or effect, my beliefs and faith and how I practice my faith. I’ve been reading this book, “World Religions”. The last chapter I completed was on Jainism and a prayer or mantra from the religion stuck out.
I ask pardon of all living creatures. May all of them pardon me. May I have a friendly relationship with all beings and unfriendly with none.
Friendship to all living forms, delight in the qualities of the virtuous ones, unlimited compassion for all suffering beings, equanimity towards all who wish m harm, may my soul have these dispositions now and forever.
Not sure where this journey will end.
~ Read the following quotes on another blog. I don’t remember the topic but they resonated with me.
“I’ve fallen away from Biblical imperatives because I can’t read it in its original form and it is therefore subject to interpretation by the translator”
“My religion was lost when I found my faith; religious groups are just clubs that splintered off when they didn’t like that leader’s interpretation of the scripture.”
There will be more to come so…stay tuned. 😉
