Awareness

“Awareness is the greatest agent for change.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

Sometimes in our very busy lives we move through each day unaware of our true feelings and how we affect the people around us. We humans get so busy with tasks to accomplish and simply find ourselves in a kind of survival mode. We become lost and don’t even realize it.

When we are so unaware and lost we hurt ourselves and those we love, and sometimes don’t know we’re doing it. Becoming aware of who we are and how we are influencing everyone around us is mindfulness, and a practice we must do every day.

“Self-awareness involves deep personal honesty. It comes from asking and answering hard questions.” ~ Stephen R. Covey

Being honest with ourselves is crucial to the why we do what we do. The hard questions of how we truly feel inside about ourselves. If we are beaten down, feel inadequate, deeply hurt, resentful, how can we function for ourselves or those we love? And it’s more than just functioning, it’s how can we live our best life?

The awareness of ourselves and the acceptance of our reality is the beginning of our changing any bad behavior that’s keeping us from living our life fully and placing those we love in the warmth of our embrace.

Becoming aware of who we are and what we are doing puts us in a dance with our life that is not only beautiful, but full of balance and flow.

    • And done well my friend. We only ever appreciate something when it is lost to us and our love takes a lifetime to find behind those fears we hold so hard. But because it takes so long to discover and after such a very long time, our appreciation in just what it has taken to to see ‘us’ is like nothing I could put into words…but you did well wise lady, you cannot express it unless you’ve been there. Take a bow 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    Beautiful post, Michele! I agree wholeheartedly. Becoming more internally aware can only serve to help us love God, ourselves, and others better! It’s true what they say, hurting people hurt people. Being more aware of where we’re at emotionally, processing our own griefs and hurts, brings peace to our lives and the ones we love. Besides that, we can begin to help others heal in their own lives!

    I love what you said about being lost without even realizing it sometimes. You are spot on, my friend!

    Endless love & beautiful blessings being sent your way. ♥

    • Thank you Holly 🙂 So true isn’t it that in healing ourselves we can begin to heal others, maybe by just being ourselves. In a way like laughter is contagious. We humans do have a way of being lost and not even realizing it. That’s the sad part about us, but doesn’t have to be.
