Do-do, do do, do do!
Love the one you’re with!
So easy to say but sometimes so difficult to do! We are talking about this concept on many many levels!
Most think when we use these words we are strictly talking about the spouse or mate that you have chosen. Where we believe this is true in that aspect, we also believe this is true with ourselves and the people surrounding us.
How many time have we looked in the mirror and said, ugh I hate the person I’m looking at! You have no idea the affect these words have on you. If you don’t love you, how can anyone else truly love you?
Your body hears everything your mind is saying, keep it positive! There are enough negative comments offered up by the world to keep us all going for eternity.
If you begin to speak life into your own soul you will begin to radiate more confidence and exude a positive energy that is attractive! Don’t believe us, give it a try!
And ladies- if you have children, and they are in the room when you are bashing your looks what are you teaching them? Don’t you wish you were taught to love yourself better? To love yourself more? Let’s teach our children that they are beautiful not by complimenting them all the time, but by loving ourselves and showing them what that looks like!
We also believe that loving the one you’re with could be simply the people surrounding you. Are you always looking ahead? Never in the moment? Do you feel like you’re too busy to enjoy life?
Put down the cell phone and look your friend in the eye. Listen to them. Enjoy their company. It makes life so much more enjoyable to have substance and meaning in conversations!
And because once again we are mothers we know this to be true with children too! You can’t enjoy your children in the car rear view mirror or even in line at the grocery store. Be intentional about the time you have with them. It doesn’t have to be long- but give them some undivided time.
Always thinking ahead and wondering what else or who else is stealing your RIGHT NOW! None of us are promised tomorrow, so make the most of the time you have!
This week, Will Smith spoke about happiness. His thoughts were you should not look to anyone else to make you happy. Your happiness is your responsibility. You make you happy, because when you look to others for your happiness, you set them up to fail. Part of making yourself happy is finding your individual joy and then presenting yourself to a relationship already Happy. Not coming begging with our cups out to be filled by someone else. Part of this internal joy begins by being surrounded by people you love. Part of loving people is being present in the moment that you are with them!
Great friendships don’t happen over night, we have to nurture them, communicate with others, listen, and focus. Loving the one you’re with is so hard because of all of the distractions this world offers. Remember to always be intentional, stop looking at the clock, and be PRESENT!!! It’s the one gift that money can’t buy and EVERYONE loves it the most!
We are rooting for you friends! As we move forward and try to do better, we hope you will too! Cheers to being more present in life and loving the one you are with!
