I went to bed too early (I reckon) so I kept waking up all through the night. When I’d awaken, I’d turn and lie on either my left or right side and attempt to sleep in fetal position, thinking this would help me get back to sleep, but it never worked. Then I remembered hearing an expert say that sleeping on one’s back is the best way to sleep, so I laid flat on my back. Often while sleeping, I’d get too warm so I’d flip my pillow and spread my arms and legs to find cooler spaces on the bed until I cool off. So, I followed this ritual all night last night, all night. And it was somewhere around 2-something (I looked at the clock) as I was cooling myself and realized that my lying down position was reminiscent of the outstretched arms of the infamous crucifix. That was the moment when the word “surrender” entered my experience; right then I stopped trying to go to sleep and simply went to sleep. Of course, I kept waking up but when I did, I knew exactly what to do–model the greatest example of surrender ever. Ashe (so let it be).
When you arrive, go and help someone else get to their destination.
… is to make you better!
If you want to examine your ability to listen to others pay attention to what you’re thinking when someone else is talking.
Had a great day and I had to share it with y’all.
There is nothing like meeting someone who “gets you.” At least when they’re new they seem to “get you” better than anyone else at the time. I guess that is until they get to know you, lol. Enjoy the new best friends. And if you watched my video on “making ‘what is’ perfect” then you’ll always be best friends.
I know “what is” is not what you think you want. But, question. “What if “what is” could be perfect if you made it that way?”
Perfection requires work, my friend. Think of a thing that you accomplished that you causes you to marvel? Your accomplishment was perfect because it was difficult but you did it!
It’s the same in relationships. Of course, the relationship can only be perfect if the two of you are perfect for each other. That’s the first requirement. Okay, let me say–if there is any kind of abuse, any kind, then your relationship is disqualified as perfect. That’s for the record, y’all.

Look at that face of mine? It’s not as bad as all that. Anyway. Stevie Wonder recorded a song by the same title, but his second line was “Won’t you tell me.” My second line is “why don’t you change for me.” Cause if you really love me then you’d want to please me. Hold on, hold on! This is only true when what I am asking you to change is good for you, Boo. It occurred to me just today that if I am meant for you then I am here to teach you something. I am here to help you be your best self. And I can and should say the hard things that no one else can or will say to you. So, if you really love me AND if you know what real love is then you will change. And in this case, you are changing for yourself and not for me. It’s just that because of your love for me I can seduce you to change. That’s only if I am THE ONE AND that’s if you really love me.
Take your own advice, because you know what it is that you need to do for things to get better. This is self-help at its finest!
