Hey Friends! I hope you are having a blessed day and you are winning your silent battles! Today started per usual, Giving Thanks saying buongiorno to everyone, coffee and giving the little fur ball Elvis some love.
The weather has begun to change which has our mornings and days considerably cooler then before and the leaves are beginning to fall which Elvis is excited for he loves to lay in leaves. This morning he has been going around finding leaves and flopping down on them until he finally found the right leaf to sleep on.
I went for my morning warm up walk, rode the stationary bike , stretched, worked out meditated and then helped to prepare for a little family lunch, showered and did an hour of Italian class this morning. Lunch was fantastic as always and it is always a good time with loved ones around.
After lunch I took an hour nap and then did three more hours of Italian class. My brain was fried and turning into mush but I did the four hours. Mission accomplished. I then started working on blog and work related tasks.
After things calmed down and I began to think about some of my interactions with people recently I decided that I need to really put in some work with setting solid boundaries with people. Learn to say No and learn to stand solid with my beliefs and how I feel.
I feel if we have told someone the ssssaaaammmmeee thing about how we feel and nothing has changed, we need to understand that they dont respect us. There cannot be any kind of relationship not in business, love or friendships without respect.
We can still be humble and calm yet still not tolerate disrespect and set solid boundaries to protect our own energy. It says more about them then it does about us when someone acts bothered to give you the bare minimum effert.
Someone recently told me ¨ Waiting for someone to act correctly is a disrespect to yourself. Your compromising your worth just because someone cant fully afford it. ¨
It is terribly disappointing to have your eyes opened to see how fake a person actually is and can now see them for exactly who and what they are. Yet everyone loves them because they put on a good show, they are a circus act. Nothing more and nothing less.
Though they are obviously not being the best versions of themselves it doesnt mean we shouldnt still strive to be the best version of ourselves. We have to see things for what they are and not what we want them to be and except the fact that not everyone has the same heart as us.
¨ You can spend minutes, hours, weeks, or even months over analyzing a situation. Trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could have, would have happened…or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on. ¨Tupac Shakur
We should chose to do as Tupac says ¨leave those pieces on the floor¨, give it to God, and still strive to live in light and love. We should take the way people consistently treat us as how they really feel about us. And remember actions speak louder then words 100% and not go on our vision of their potential. Hitler had potential, Satan had potential, Manson had potential… you get where Iam going with this.
We can not make any one change or do anything they are not ready to do. We can only control how we respond right? So may I suggest that we too begin to pay attention to how we respond to the people around us. Lets ask ourselves if we take offense to something someone says why did we take offense?
Digging a little deeper can help us to heal and move past taking offenses to anything anyone has to say or do. This is doing our part to grow and be our best versions of our selves. Let us now be more aware of the age old saying ¨actions speak louder then words is the truth ¨ not just something old people used to say.
Keeping this in mind as we go about our daily champion challenge tasks and day. If they aint walking it like they are talking it…. then we dont have time for clowns. Matter of fact we dont even like the circus!
Thank you for joining us on our Champion Challenge! Please feel free to like, comment and subscribe and until next time stay inspired and blessed, Much Love
