I can see You!!!


Do you remember the many hours you spent as a child playing hide and seek?

The thrill of finding that perfect spot that allowed you to remain hidden until you were ready to emerge on your own?

I was always really good at that game. I seemed to have a natural knack for finding the perfect spot to hide.

As I got older, nothing really changed.

I learned how to hide behind layers of fat.

A plastered on smile.

 

The perfect haircut, and accessories to make it appear as if I have everything pulled together…

Can you relate?

 

While this form of hiding may be effective at keeping people at arms length so that can’t get close enough to see the pain in your eyes…

It also prevents them from getting close enough to comfort you!

Before you can achieve peace or happiness in your life, you must become aware of yourself.

This will require you to come out of your hiding place and allow the world to “SEE” you.

You need to be brave enough to be authentic, but that will not be possible until you can become self aware.

I feel that I must warn you that this is never an easy task as it is much easier to recognize the errors of others rather than take responsibility for our own errors.

Here are a few ways that you can behave that will naturally foster self awareness.

(I took today’s inspiration from some of my favorite motivational quotes and wrote these tips from the things I learned by reading them.)

#1: You must become aware of what you say and how you say it. The words you choose, your tone of voice, the expression in your face and eyes.

#2: You must become aware of what you do and how you do it. Always pay attention to details, as these are the little things that will make a BIG difference.

 

#3: Honor your word and the promises you make by always keeping them. Be on time as this shows respect to others and lets other people know you respect yourself. Learn proper manners and language as these are important parts of a civilized society.

#4: Stand up for yourself. Say “yes” when you mean “yes” and “no” when you mean “no”. Never pay any attention to gossip as this type of talk is far away from the peace you seek.

#5: Honor yourself by taking time for YOU every day – whether in a quiet setting of meditation, a walk, reading, exercising, going for a run, a massage, a manicure, a gentle bubble bath or listening to music. Whatever works for you.

 

#6: Become aware of your motives, judgments, assumptions, and fears. Question anything you do with a motive behind it. Do things for others simply because it is the right thing to do and you want to do it. When you judge someone else, you are actually judging yourself. Ninety-nine percent of all assumptions are false and your fears will come to pass so you can learn from them.

 

#7: Become aware of what you focus on because “what you focus on expands and what you think about happens.” See your life as you want it to be and not as it is, putting your thoughts and energies toward achieving this life you want. For a living, always do what you love to do! If you do what you love to do, money will naturally be a reward to you from sharing this love with the world.

#8:Become aware of all the “life choices” you make. Your life is always a reflection of the choices you have made up to that moment, so stop giving yourself reasons for not having the life you desire. Make a decision to get the results you want from life.

#9: The only thing that makes a “human” different from any other species is the God-given ability to choose. Yet we allow our ego to become involved and choose for us. Or, we decide not to make any choice at all – taking the easy way out so we will not have to take responsibility for this choice. “No choice” is still a choice!

#10: Make the decision to become aware and make the choices that will turn your life into the life you want to have. You have been blessed with the ability to choose. Use it wisely, all the while teaching your children this same lesson. 

BONUS TIP: Become aware of your passion, the song in your heart! Each of us has one. Find yours! Live it and leave the world a better place!
