had no professional skills and was raised by controlling mother

 

and married a controlling man so I had no idea who I was as

 

a single parent, let alone who was I as a person.

Spirituality but all of them have been wonderful for ME in my Spiritual walk

There is nothing wrong with having fun, being with family and

 

Friends.  We have to be careful about how much we do

 

anything.

 

 

Especially if you believe you may have any addictions

 

There are many issues that can become addictions besides

 

Alcohol and drugs (illegal or legal).

 

There is:

 

Food

 

Spending

 

Exercising

 

Loosing weight

 

Eating

 

Depression

 

 

Sleeping

 

 

 

There is almost everything that can become addictions.

 

 

It is about a sense of self and the way you live your life.  You can

 

Determine importance not only by how much you are doing it, but

 

how much you are letting other things go that needs to be done.

 

also by how much you are not doing other things.

 

 

PRIORITY EQUALS IMPORTANCE

 

 

 

There is nothing wrong engaging in pleasurable activity but there

 

Is a line between activity and addiction when the activity that is?

 

positive or neutral takes a decidedly negative turn.

 

Different families have weakened genes and DNA that if

 

A person takes recreational pot that can be a door to more drugs:

 

Meth, cocaine, heron, a murid number of things.  Take myself,

 

My family has a lot of alcoholism and drug addictions so I treat

 

myself very gingerly about drinking and have never put drugs into

 

my body.  I know I have a very addictive personality, and whether

 

it is drinking or food I am addictive.

 

 

Is what you are doing is causing a disruption in your life then you

 

need to address the issue.

 

 

I am very careful how much I drink – 1-2 glasses of wine is

 

my limit and usually only 1 or 2 times a year I will have wine

 

at home by myself.

 

Any addiction is a behavior that controls you.  Usually people

 

that have addictions do not like to be controlled but cannot

 

understand how much they are being controlled by their

 

additions.

 

Change is the most important thing in YOUR life-and it is

 

sometimes the hardest thing to do but DO IT.

 

What Life expects from YOU does not happen unless you are

 

willing to make those big changes that need to be done.

We all have issues, we all probably have some kind of addictions

 

that maybe we are not alcoholic – there are so many other kinds

 

of addictions.

 

Address those issues or addictions – make the necessary

 

Changes

 

Be courageous, be strong, be brave.  Use all YOUR good

 

energies you can dig up out of SELF.

 

Any addiction is a behavior that control YOU

 

Your impulses,

 

Your Pleasures

 

Your anxieties

 

Your fears

 

Your preferences

 

These take center stage over YOUR better judgment or reasoned

 

decisions.

 

If you believe you are struggling with an addiction that is

 

Negatively impacting the quality and health of your life, it may be

 

Time to seek assistance from a professional.

Addition typically masks an underlying problem that the person

 

Does not want acknowledge or deal with.  Aa you well know, it is

 

Really not helpful to tell the person “You have a problem in your

 

Thinking.”  Instead, much better to acknowledge the suffering and

 

Build a level of trust until the person is willing to discuss it, and if

 

Not then jut let it go.  Convincing people that they have a thinking

 

Defect is extremely damaging (if they actually believe it) and sets

 

Them up for abuse and exploitation.

YOUR mind has walls that have been built up since you were

In womb and the nutrients, thoughts from your parents and your

environment.  Be open and mindful of what goes into YOUR

mind.  Put the powerful, encouraging and empowering thoughts

and words into YOU.  YOUR life will change for the better.

 

Thank the universe, God, the life you have been given, and

be thankful for the days you are here.

 

Think SELF first because the more you are mindful of SELF

the more you can do for family and friends.

 

Think big, think grand for SELF and be thankful and grateful.

Do not live with rose-colored glasses on so think for yourself

on subjects important to YOU.  There are always a PRO and

CON thought on every subject – take the subject important to

you and do the research on that subject so you are clear in

YOUR mind.

 

When my sister had been given 2 weeks to live she and I were

talking and she said she wished she would have done more

with her life because she knew she could have.  I told her “I

knew she could have also”.  The reason she did not do more

with her life is because:

She would have had to ponder about SELF

She would have had to learn about SELF

She would want to expand SELF

She would have had to step out of SELF

She would have had to work on SELF

She would have had to encourage SELF

She would have to empower SELF

She would have to learn new things for SELF

She would have had to read non-fiction for SELF

 

Because I knew my sister well – those are the things I

observed from childhood.

For myself, I work on all those items all the time.

Life is difficult, Life is not easy, Life can be wonderful,

Life is not stressful when SELF is in control of SELF

 

The following are some recommendations that may help SELF

  1. Turn off the TV
  2. Join a new group for different thoughts
  3. Never complain or whine
  4. Smile going into the store
  5. Do not talk about others
  6. Listen to YOUR inner self
  7. Take a new class at Kahn Academy-FREE
  8. Do not be jealous, be thankful for other’s success

I do not even like to blog about negatives – it puts too much

negative energy into the universe when we want it all to

be positive energy

 

If you have had trauma or tragedies – which most of us have

had those in some part of our lifetime.  The best way to help in

those times-those times may last years – but lithium orates will

help with that, good nutrition, and exercise also will help, along

with meditating and prayer.  Work every day working out of

the mind set from traumas and tragedies.  It is not easy and it

does not happen in 1 or 2 days.  But there is light at the end of

the tunnel when YOU are consistent with working on SELF.

Forgiveness is one of the best tools in YOUR toolbox.

Forgiveness of SELF and then everyone else.

 It does help the Spirit every day
Woman in prayer
Spirit will help you put one foot in front of the other when YOU have a loss or grief.  YOUR Spirit will lift you up to move ahead with this loss or grief.  Sometimes, it may not be today or tomorrow but YOUR Spirit is there to help and lift you up to start the new day.
Grief can be from anything, and it takes SELF to get through it – everyone gets through grief on their own time schedule and it is not always easy.  But YOUR spirit is there to help you through it to the good side.
