I Never Thought About It That Way...

Tony Robbins - Selection and Connection

If you were reading my blog a few years ago, you would have noticed me talking a few times about Tony Robbins and my involvement with his organization.  In recent years, I've moved away from being an active member within the group, however, I've never moved away from the tools and the learning I obtained during my involvement as a participant in his programs, as a crew member of his events, and in my leadership training with his team.  Every once in a while certain videos from his team pop up on Facebook, in my email or some other form of communication, and they jump out at me for whatever reason.  The video below happened to jump out at me today.  

I did this exercise...a number of years ago, and I still have the list that he's referring to in terms of what I want and what I don't want in a partner.  The only part of the list that I didn't write down (and I'm not sure I fully thought it through) is the person I would have to be in order to get what I wanted.  I'm going to have to dig that list back out again and take a little looksie just to see...

Tony's style isn't for everyone, but his message is.

Change

I'm not a fan of being uncomfortable with it, but I'm learning to like it...

Holiday Spirit

It's taken me a bit of time to get into the holiday spirit considering I didn't actually have the traditional turkey dinner, but dim sum instead...That's the Asian part of the family shining brightly through.  LOL  Anywhoo, between that and most likely not getting around to putting up a tree or other holiday decorations AGAIN this year, the holiday spirit has been slow to invade my psyche.  But then I saw this featuring one of my favorite Christmas songs, and I can feel it creeping in...

I Wonder...

Image source

I came across this photo in my blog reading.  There was no story attached...just the picture.  Is it sad that I took one look and my very first thought was, "I wonder what he did for him to give her those?  It must have not been good..."?  Sounds like I'm a bitter bitch, doesn't it?  :o)

Don't get me wrong.  It's not like I've never received flowers from a guy before.  Random roses here and there...stalker roses...a few bouquets, even a movie moment rose...but nothing near what's in the picture above.  In reality, I'd much rather have the guy who remembers special dates, little things about me and what I like and don't like, the guy who who speaks of me sweetly, lovingly and honors me not only in my presence but almost more importantly when I'm not with him.  I'd much rather have all of that than a monstrous bouquet...because in the end, flowers die.  But flowers are nice too.  :)  Can't I have it all?

I Know This To Be True...

This...

This made me cry when I read it.  I'm not sure why.  Is it because I'm scared that I don't have it...or that I do?

Gratitude

One of the biggest changes I'm making right now to change how I'm feeling emotionally, mentally and physically....focusing on gratitude...

Failing

I am currently failing miserably at this...I think....but I'm really trying to stop it. I don't want to be that person.

Oh That Grey's Anatomy...

I'm going through a whole lot of unresolved emotions and thoughts from the past....oh I don't know...my entire life maybe?  This craniosacral therapy I've been doing has really worked me over in terms of opening me up to experience all of this that I apparently have been holding onto forever.  I've been finding myself driving home with tears randomly streaming down my face about stuff that's happened when I was 10...and stuff that happened a few months ago...and stuff that happened in all of the periods in between.

My Special Someone and one of my college BFFs have been hearing about or experiencing a lot of it especially in this last week.  God bless you both for putting up with me...or at least somewhat acting like you are.  So I'm trying to get a handle on it again because I REALLY hate being out of sorts emotionally - although you probably couldn't tell by a lot of my posts on here.  But then I keep coming across these types of things either on Facebook, Pinterest or Google Reader and it sets something else off.  Oy to the vey.





I Guess I Was Just Too Happy....

August 2012....when I really started to let myself be happy and just be in it...and then...boom.  And it took a decade to let myself do that again.  I wonder how long it's going to take this time...





I Need To Read This...

Image source unknown

I first experienced love through books.  I've been a bookworm from the very first word I was able to decipher on a page filled with words.  Lately I haven't read much for pleasure.  I've grown into somewhat of an impatient woman with my entertainment as has much of the world around me, with a preference towards movies and television.  But I remember the beauty of losing myself in the story of whatever I was reading, especially the love stories.  For the longest time I thought that was where love, the purest form of love, really lived.  I mean, I hadn't experienced yet myself.  I hadn't seen it play out in reality around me the way it did in my books, so of course I thought it only lived in my books like every other fantasy story.

And then I experienced it myself.  Even with  it being just my one sided love, it finally clicked.  Really clicked.  THIS is what they were talking about in my books.  It didn't just sound nice and wonderful.  In reality it was SO. Much. Better.  But I was still missing something.  I'm still missing something.  What does it feel like to be loved back, with the same strength and intensity that I love and to really feel that I'm being loved that way?  I didn't fully realize that I was missing it until I read the Ernest Hemingway passage above.  Maybe I'm not loving outwardly as fully as I think I am now and thus I'm not feeling it returned.  I don't know.  What I do know is that I need to read A Farewell to Arms...

All So True...

I came across a number of graphics that all rang so true for me and hit me in my core. Too good not to share:

If This Is The Guideline...

Image source unknown

 

...then my heart has been broken for almost as long as I've been alive. When I was 10 years old, there was a moment of time when my dad "cheated" on me in a way with his mistress' son. Even now when I even think about or share the story, there is an instant stabbing in my heart of pain, betrayal and hurt. Surprisingly, at least to me when I think about it, it almost hurts worse than the death of my father...and that happened traumatically. This graphic actually explains so much...I've never healed from my first betrayal...

Around the Web

These are some graphics that I came across either on FB, my blog reading or my current obsession...Pinterest.  Unfortunately, I don't know the source of these images, otherwise I would happily give credit.
