I have decided that it's best to just go about my business -- be me, and don't care what other people think. I know I have talked about this in my blog before, but sometimes I need to be reminded. Yes, I tell myself here and there as I go through life. It never really sticks. Why? Because I care way too much.
The tough part is to realize people don't care as much as I do. Yes, I guess they could care about other things, but most times 'it's all about me.' And yes, life should be about me because no one else is going to pay my bills. Who else is going to do for me? I'll tell you who -- family and a few good friends whom I consider family.
I do care about my students. Speaking of students, I just started an eight-week phenomenon circle. We started with transfiguration, which is when your faces changes while sitting in a room with red light. It's very cool. Next week we're sitting in the energy. I cannot wait to see more spirits, lights and hear raps. It's exciting to prove the continuity of life!
I do care about my clients every one of them. I do wanna help and do care so very deeply. I do care about everyone, the collective. I can feel when things go haywire, and I can feel when things go good as well. Sometimes I must block out the world to keep my sanity.
I do care for those people who do not treat me the way I want to be treated, although I do not care for their behavior. I do care for people who break the law because I know somewhere deep down it's a cry for help. People do things because it's what they learned. It is survival mode for some. This is understanding.
I do care about myself. Sometimes, we must put ourselves first, and it's OK when we do. Do not feel guilty about it. Take care of you first, and in the process of taking care of yourself, you ultimately take care of others.
Just once weekly do something for you!
Blessing of Peace and Love!
