Before I start today’s blog, just a huge personal THANKS to everyone who was viewed, liked, or followed mywarriorwritings these past 13.5 months! This blog has gone internationally to 21 countries and 5 continents and I am extremely grateful to all of you! Not just because of this holiday season but everyday…
Some of you may already know but I have recently published a book called SPIRIT and BELIEF—How the Ultimate Warrior Led Me to Trust Intuition. I am excited to announce my new website: www.spiritandbelief.com where I will be starting a new blog soon.
Please continue to follow me and sign up to receive the blog every week. Warrior will forever inspire me but I am moving in a different direction with topics such as meditation, a psychic vs. a medium, spirit guides, and others.
Don’t worry Warrior fans~~I won’t let you down! You can also find info on my book there as well or order thru me directly! I still hope to connect with many of you so please stay in touch. This blog has a few weeks to go…..
Our whole lives are based on constant opinions of ourselves, others, what to say, do, think, and feel all the time. This becomes quite exhausting for the brain and yet it remains always. I believe as a Warrior that we should question but stop judging and just agree to disagree. There will continually be people who will never see our point of view and vice versa but we can and should defend our position while remaining who we are.
I always felt the need to justify or explain my feelings and actions when the truth is— I shouldn’t. We like what we like and choose our own path. If we don’t want to do something, no means no without an explanation! We shouldn’t place expectations on people and assume it is their job to do favors for us. We need to do the work ourselves like Warrior always did. I am guilty of not asking for help when needed but I don’t rely on others when I know it isn’t necessary most of the time.
Warrior would mention how “Mr. Resistance” or “Mr. Ugly” would be present everyday. I guess for me it would be “Ms.” instead of “Mr.” but this is our ego talking. It will always be there telling you that you can’t do something, you’re not capable, you’re not good enough, and much more. We need to stop listening to the ugly and resist that naysayer who brings us down.
There are no lists of excuses as to why you shouldn’t try to improve your life but your expectations need to be within your OWN perspective and maybe you will exceed them! Once we get rid of those expectations we place on others, things will get easier. I know this is true for me and how I looked at situations. I got rid of my excuses and set my own expectations while not expecting much in return which brought about my book! This all opened the door to a new way of thinking for me so the ugly resistance stays away.
This is how I identify with Warrior and how I apply his principles in my life. There shouldn’t be pressure to conform with how everyone is doing something. We can make the right decision for ourselves and shouldn’t be judged. Sometimes I forget this depending on the circumstance but more times than not, I come back to my beliefs in self and what is best for me and my family.
Minding our OWN business is hard and takes much patience to do when our advice isn’t warranted or asked. Just like the reverse is true of others who shouldn’t spend so much time and energy worrying about family or friends that make a choice not to their liking. I’m not saying to not care or show little interest in others activities but we can take out so much stress when we concentrate on important matters.
We can share when we want but when we don’t, that should be o.k. too. For some this becomes a negative quality how we aren’t doing what they think is best. This seems so confusing but acceptance needs to be the answer. I have grown so much into a true warrior, some days it fills me with amazement. We shouldn’t have excuses for our beliefs just like we shouldn’t place expectations on others to conform.
~~~ Always be grateful and thankful for who and what you truly are. It is not selfish to do so! Embrace gratitude this holiday!!! 🍂🦃🥧🍽🏈🧡☺️👍
