You Are What You Accept

4694342-Jay-Z-Quote-Don-t-ever-go-with-the-flow-Be-the-flowYou teach people how you would like to be treated, by how you react to what they say or do.

Either by acceptance of what they do to you or by you reprimanding them.

To correct someone on how you would like to be treated, I believe, comes from raising your standards.

Low standards allows them to continue “taking advantage” of you, while raising them educates them on how you would like to be treated.

It takes courage to put yourself first.

It takes courage futhi to “equip” people on how you like to be treated, in order for them to bring out the best in you.

It’s a win-win.

Reminds me of how I cringe when people organize events at the last minute and expect me to participate.

9 times out of 10 I don’t. If I do, it is with a closed heart.

Give me time to think it over in my mind as a typical melancholy. Don’t pull a sanguine move on me and expect to me to be jolly about it.

But then again I’m an introvert, so being “out there” drains my energy, at times.

I’m just at a point in my life, with all that’s happening, where I cannot “go with the flow” that goes against my core values.

Living a lie is tiring.

There is power outside your comfort zone.

"Be Still, And Know, That I, Am God"

I just thought this is an excellent follow up from an earlier post Calm Your Spirit With A Gratitude Rock.

What I have written in italics below is an extract from one of the regular inspiring emails from Neale Donald Walsch, is best known for the Conversations with God book series, who now has a new book out titled When Everything Changes, Change Everything available at Amazon.com.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

“On this day of your life…I believe God wants you to know…

…that it doesn’t matter if you can’t get a cell phone signal or Wi-Fi where you are. You are always connected to Source.”

“I’m not kidding about this. I’m serious. Wherever you are, wherever you go, you are always connected to Divine Wisdom, Divine Intelligence, and Divine Love.”

“Just close your eyes. Breathe. Stop whatever you’re doing for ten seconds and find The Silence. Visit The Quiet.”

“Just for ten seconds. Do it six times today.”

One minute a day. That’s all it takes.

“One minute, divided into six parts.”

“Go ahead. Do it now.”

From the author of When Everything Changes, Change Everything: In a Time of Turmoil, a Pathway to Peace.
