Now that spring has sprung have you written your vows to yourself? Have you figured out what you're saying I Do to?
As we have entered into a different season I have knocked some things off my list and added some new vows. I've added more focus on what really makes me happy and how to achieve those things.
Learning the act of forgiveness: Forgiveness is not for the person, forgiveness is for you. I've been doing a lot of this lately. Learning to forgive people and let God deal with it. And to be honest it is not been easy!! It has taken a lot of tears, un-sent text messages, talking with God and those who I can trust the most.
The biggest person I had to forgive was my father. I had to forgive him for every missed moment, harsh conversations and most innaporopaite behavior I have experienced with him. I had to forgive him so I can allow my heart to be open. I brag on how I don't make anyone pay for something someone else did. But in reality I was making everyone pay for him. I kept everything I was doing to myself because he never showed up. I don't care when I should because of him. And to be honest that's not fair to anyone. So I've had to learn to forgive so I can have an open heart.
Knowing you CAN NOT save EVERYONE: By nature I am always trying to save someone... but when I do the saving who the hell is saving me?!?! You can not save someone who does not want to be saved and you can not help everyone who does not want to be helped. ( I yelled period btw) You just can't! Trying to save people is exhausting, draining and a waste of time if they don't do anything to save themselves. Do yourself the favor and STOP! I can guarantee you that the person or the people you are trying to save might not have their hand out to save you when you need it.
Sorry not sorry: Inserts Drake lyric " Sorry For What". That's it, that's all!
Creating your happiness: This has been my biggest focus. I will admit, I let a person in and they made me remember why I put them out. I had to vow not to ever do that again. Simply because I have worked hard to not allow moments in time define my happiness... I had to learn not to harp on an issue. Letting people in that deserve to stay out is a no no, learn from me DO NOT DO IT! Or be like me and learn the hard way lol! Honestly, keep your personal space filled with happiness. You perform better when you do.
Happy Spring beautiful people!
