The true meaning of relationships to me

“Love comes naturally when we don’t need each other.”

This is what my boyfriend told me last night before we drifted off to sleep.

Being with him has taught me that the purpose of being in a relationship is not to have someone who completes you; but to have someone who you can share your completeness and wholeness with. Relationships are about opening yourself to the possibilities and deciding what part of yourself is an exclamation of who you really are. It isn’t about what part of another person will reach/ exceed your expectations, thwart your judgments, or meet your needs. Relationships are for mutual interdependency, not emotional, mental, and physical dependency.

A few months ago, I told him, “I don’t need you in my life. I can do well with or without you.” And he considers this the best thing I have ever told him.

I came across this letter that was taped outside a patient’s room window on the pediatrics floor at work today:

“Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is to go home.

If you can give me this, I will bake you a lot of yummy cookies .”

This touched my heart.

Send your love, care, and blessings to those who aren’t home for the holidays.
And be thankful for what you have and who you are sharing memories with today.
God bless you all

Come as you are

Love yourself and embrace every inch of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual being.

Live and be your true self, because there is no one else you can be.

Be thankful of who you are right now. And show gratitude for what you have been through.

Accept who you see in the mirror and don’t compare yourself to anyone.

Because there is no one else in the world like you.

So, don’t be anyone else.

Just be you.

” The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek, therefore, not to find out Who You Are, seek to determine Who You Want to Be. ” – Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue […]

” Today will never come again.

Be a blessing.
Encourage someone.
Take time to care.
Let your words heal and not wound. ”

Be here and now in the present moment and share the love and care to those around you.

“We are the mirror

as well as the face in it.”

– Rumi

” Negativity may knock on your door,

but that doesn’t mean you have to let it in.”

Get rid of that negative mind chatter!

Recognize it, let it go, and take the opportunity to create positive thoughts.

” If you are unable to find the truth right where you are,

where else do you expect to find it? ”

– Dogen Zenji

“Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being.”

– Jiddu Krishnamurti

“We cannot see our reflection in running water.

It is only in still water that we can see.” – Taoist Proverb
