Thank You Thursday: Relationships

Be thankful this day for relationships.

We all have relationships with our family, friends, colleagues, pets, spouses, potential mates, God and more. All these relationships fill a necessary part of our life, yet have varying degrees of love or any other emotion tied to the person, people or being involved. At some capacity these relationships is a reflection of our personality. Each person or being reflects a portion of who we are at the time in our life, while developing and learning more about ourselves. This is what ties us together. However, what most of us fail to foresee is the end of the relationship or movement in a different direction. When a relationship is dissolved or moved to a different place, we feel sadness, confusion and times joy. The reason for this miscued emotion(s), is most of us thought a particular relationship would last a lifetime or we did all we could to make it work. A dear friend told me "When God is ready to promote you not everyone is meant to go with you." This statement is true. All our relationships do last a lifetime; they are there for as long as they are needed for us to learn more about ourselves and who we really are. All who we allowed into our lives to some degree is a reflection of us or desire to be. We get so distracted by our relationships, and often forget about us. We forget about the true plan, path and purpose before us. We forget how to love ourselves and expect to come from other sources. We must have a relationship with ourselves.

The relationship with ourself should be limitless and without preconditions. We have to give ourself permission to love ourselves the way it is intended for each of us. With this permission, comes the freedom to fully express ourselves. This expression offers new levels of joy and love for self. We all love differently, but we do love. The relationship with ourself is the key to understanding others in our life and why they are there. We have to recondition ourselves through self forgiveness and compassion. Once these steps are taken then we can nurture ourselves, through this nurturing comes self acceptance. Self acceptance is very crucial in our relationship with self. We have to accept ourselves as we are, even with what we call flaws. After we fully accept ourselves, then we can change or improve upon our flaws. This level of acceptance sends a message of gratitude to the Universe, saying I appreciate myself as I am. We begin to open up the flow of self love and a new relationship with self. Once the relationship of self changes so does the relationship with others and often invite new relationships matching the new love and acceptance of self. This is a continuing process of our relationship with self. As we evolve and grow, so does our relationship.

Be thankful this day and everyday to understand our personal connection to others.
Be thankful this day and everyday to love and accept ourselves fully.
Be thankful this day and everyday for the evolution of the relationship with self.

A new

Concentration of the emancipation liberation of past relations whether friends I’ve out grown others that made me moan

As the sands of time refine a beauty true choosing life over death caring grace gracefully beyond what knowledge seeks what knowledge knows

To forget the forgotten honestly crossing my mind with kind memories till the gleam fades to nothingness like the days wept and never slept

Not looking at second chances though I received my fare share one time no mistakes careful as time then the bell chimes

Feel a release in the flux of energy sent to down crown my thoughts maintain sustain the evolution of freedom

Reached a plateau of peace in my château from asking the questions of time of prayer bestowed benefits beautifully bustling bliss belong to my future

Picturing paths possessed poetically rhythmically resounding truthfully towering comfortably joyous supple sensations smiles proudly of a job well done

In a place where I reside redefine royalty ascending to levels of oneness to satisfy myself

Start with the beginning to reach the end depends on the conquest of conquering only then to be reborn to start a new
