Be gentle, be kind, be forgiving
in a world gone mightily mad.
Be loving, be grateful, be happy
Not angry, disillusioned or sad.
As you slowly replace the material
and seek to find goodness within
you will see you have reached the ethereal,
unconditional love then begins.
Have a wonderful remaining week of days. May your heart be filled with love and your life be filled with the riches of family and friends (those you know and those you’ve yet to meet!) Always remember to take care of you,
With great affection,
“What you hold in your heart … the potential for unconditional love.
What you hold in your soul … the potential for neverending gratitude.
What you hold in your hands … A Universe of Possibilities!”~ Plh
You are awesome and when it comes to positive change, you make it happen!
Hoping your week is going well for you!
With much love and affection,
“… Exercise your “forgiveness” muscle every day!” PennyQuote
Our animals seem to have it down pat. We still need to work on this exercise – a whole lot more!
Unconditional love … yeah … that’s the ticket!
Have a great weekend everyone! Filled with lots of love (and forgiveness)!
In my last post, clearly it was one that women relate to quicker than men. Not because of the “girly” heart shaped illustration (although that’s a part of it) but because the message was written gently about the importance of unconditional love. For most women it’s how we view things.
Men love and bond just as deeply and passionately as women but their perspective on how they view a thing (as with women) has much to do with their own natures (let’s be honest here, a lot of it is physical), the environment they grow up in and of course their subsequent experiences.
But underneath all of these obvious differences there is a “sameness“! One that gets overlooked – a lot! I mention in yesterday’s blog post that with unconditional love you should “Leave No Doubt”. Too many women can forget they have the same capability as men with their own “strength (of character)” within their hearts . A strong ability to make their point and leave no doubt.
I am showing the following video clip from a movie to remind EVERY SINGLE WOMAN ON THE PLANET that we are as strong and capable (equal to) as any human when we set out to accomplish something, be it loving and nurturing, pursuing our own goals or freedoms, we DO have the strength (of character) – built right inside of us, just waiting for us to call on it.
No, not the physical strength (presented here in the video) but the other strength that is also shown here. The one of character and will – perseverance and determination! We all (humans) have that in abundance (just waiting to be tapped into). For women, it is past due time for us to cash in on this!
While the video is aimed at and about a male sport – the lesson to learn here is for both men and women – in life’s pursuit, and don’t forget it!
Leave No Doubt!
Some questions are more important than others. I’m sure you’ve noticed this in life.
When my daughter was old enough to write sentences, (about 4 – she was in the first grade when she was 5). Whenever she thought she might be or did get into trouble I would find a folded up piece of paper with the same question on it.
There were always two boxes that she would add and I always had the choice of putting an “x” in either box.
Of course I always marked the ‘yes’ box. These notes continued until her teens at which point she determined my love was “unconditional” for the rest of our lives. Of course.
My point here “Unconditional Love” is so incredibly important in life. You see, it’s that other box and the potential of a “no” that can be so frightening for a child. Love should never be used as a leverage point. There should be no doubt!
And yes, as an adult loving unconditionally, does lay you open for potential hurt, but it is still the only way that love should be given – unconditionally. Life is too special for any other answer!
Hope your week is going well,
What every partner in life deserves from the other!
Aimez-moi – ni plus, ni moins!
Si tu m’aimes, alors m’aimer de cette façon.
Ni plus ni moins que ce qui suit …
me traiter comme égaux,
mais chérir moi comme quelqu’un de spécial.
Soyez fidèle à moi, en pensée, en parole et en acte,
m’aime plus que n’importe qui d’autre – jamais.
Soyez là quand j’ai besoin de toi,
faire une différence dans ma vie,
Soyez mon amant, compagnon et confident
Vous qui je peux faire confiance avec tout mon coeur.
Est-ce trop demander?
Je ne le pense pas.
Je vous demande juste de me donner que ce que je vous donne.
Pas plus, pas moins.
