Soul Searching - What We Have Found In Ourselves

A pattern has been surfacing in our lives lately that made us take a good look at what we needed to do. One of the things that we have recently learned is to stand up for ourselves. Not in an overly aggressive way but also not allowing ourselves to become “doormats” either. Being assertive and sharing our thoughts, ideas and feelings with others in a non-confrontational way is so much better than not saying anything at all and continue allowing others to dictate how our lives should be.

It is truly a fine line that we cross many times…for many years we crossed into the direction of aggressiveness. Yelling, screaming and being very confrontational for the first many years of our lives was how we handled most situations. We then began to see how harmful this was and how we needed to change our outbursts…but then the passiveness took over and we became “doormats”, allowing others opinions to sway our decisions, choices, moods, and our total well-being.

We know what we need in our lives and we also know what needs to be done so this can be accomplished…we just need to get out of our own ways at times so this can happen. Lately, we are more awakened in every moment and we highly recommend following the “New Earth” event that can be found on Oprah’s website, just click on this article title to link to it. The entire journey has been phenomenal for both Jerry and myself and you will know if you are ready for this experience too. Good luck and please let us know of your experiences with this wonderful and exciting event.
