Be Still and Know…you are loving, generous, helpful, resourceful and strong

~

One of my very favorite “pages”…
a warm and nurturing reminder for all of us

~

be still and know you are loved valued appreciative on moss

~

Such an important reminder…
that we are all…loved, valued, appreciated, resourceful and strong

~

And yet…
that awareness can sometimes seem to depend upon
receiving that positive acknowledgement and appreciation from others…
a somewhat precarious and vulnerable spot to be in…
perhaps, waiting for others to notice or express….???
perhaps, not receiving overt expressions of those acknowledgements?

~

But actually if we step back and reflect on that dynamic process…

If we’re perceived, by others, in those ways…
we’re most likely sourcing other people’s reactions by living our own positive qualities,
living and sharing our own positive ways of living our lives with those around us…

~

And so…to keep in mind…
that we’re often the “source” of other people’s responses to us…

~

Instead of focusing on what others may or may not be noticing or expressing to us,
perhaps, we can focus instead on living as much and as often as we can….
….living our own positive qualities…

~

Being...loving, generous, helpful, resourceful and strong…
Leading to feeling...“loved, valued, appreciated, resourceful and strong”

~

be still and know you are loving generous helpful resourceful strong

 

~

A few components that may contribute to living each of these lovely qualities?
these precious ways of living our lives

~

be still and know you are loving generous components

~

People who are “loved” are often warm, loving and kind in their interactions with others
People who are “valued” are often generous, sharing and offering to others
People who are “appreciated” are often giving, helpful and responsive to others
People who are “resourceful” are often flexible, creative and using flexible ideas
People who are “strong” are often steady, stable and determined in the way they live

~

So…shifting and focusing on our own positive thoughts, words and actions…
focusing on what we do have “control” over…sourcing those…

~

And perhaps…
those positive qualities may, at times,  be noticed or appreciated by others,
perhaps not…

~

But…by doing our best to actually live those wonderful qualities….
we can live with a deeper and more expansive sense of goodness and integrity…
we can be the source of those wonderful qualities,
so very precious indeed…
