Okay I hear you asking. BE Where Keone? The answer is again BE There. ?….
So many times we are doing all we can for people we love. Going beyond the distance even. We are therapist, counselors, babysitters, maids, and even bank machines. So many times while BEing there for others, we tend to forget about ourselves until all we have done for others becomes heavy and bottled up and by that time we are screaming what about MEeeeeeeee but by then sometimes it’s too late because everyone has gotten comfty with you BEing There for them and now don’t know how to BE There for YOU.
Well, I am telling you (in my Effie White voice) that just as it IS important to BE There for others, we must know when to BE There for ourselves. Making sure WE are taken care of and that WE take support from others just as WE give! Making sure that we are healthy and happy, loved. Because if WE can’t BE There for ourselves it may be the last time we can BE There for anyone else. Think on that.
BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful… BE!
Do you ever plead and beg and cry and pray and go crazy over trying to get someone to do right? I mean do you bend over backwards and lose sleep wondering what you’ve done wrong and why you are being treated with such disrespect. Why you are misunderstood, and feel more in the way than making a way? Is the love you’re giving not being returned? Do you find yourself constantly giving while others are taking. Supporting, while others are tearing you down? Tired? Down? Stressed?
What for? Whatever it is that you keep stressing yourself over must be moved aside so you can BE Stress Free. Stop crying over him/her and BE Stress Free. Start living for YOU and BE Stress Free. BE there for those who are willing to reciprocate and be there for you and BE Stress Free. Live life and BE Stress Free. I mean wait! Life is never completely Stress Free but why add more unnecessary stress when you can just let all things that are bringing the stress go?
Oh you can’t let it go? Why? Could it be that YOU are the one causing the stress? Bringing the drama? Standing in the way of even your own happiness? Well in that case, fix it!!!!! Change and shift and then guess what? BE Stress Free!
BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful… BE!
I would say to myself often over the years “I’m a good person, I’m talented and creative and unique”, “why are things not happening for me”? “Why am I not a celebrity already with a big house and lots of money and doing everything I want to do in life”? Then I would cry and mope and then pray and then say “one day it’ll happen” and back to sitting and waiting. In some areas of my life I still do this. It really doesn’t serve me! At all!
I’ve learned that the only way to get what you want in life is to go and GET IT! Every thing points to this theory being true. You know the sayings, “hard work pays off” “to get what you want you have to work for it” even the Bible says “faith without works is dead”. This all says that wanting it is not enough you have to be willing to do the work and go through all the motions and emotions to get to the success!
Now sometimes it does just fall into your lap. I have had some things just appear but having things just appear is not the end and to keep what you got it will take hard work.
I get it, I hear some of you saying I have these hang ups. Family, financial responsibilities, a 9 to 5, whatever other hurdles and bumps you can think of. Those things can get in the way but now you get to ask yourself if you are truly okay with the life you have and willing to let go of the dreams and the things you don’t have or are you willing to sacrifice the things you have In order to trade up and get the things you don’t have.
I want to encourage everyone to go for the latter! We are all worthy, we all deserve it and with hard work and determination and passion and being open to support and vulnerability we can have all things turn out for us! There IS enough for everyone! So BE A GO Getter and GEt everything you want in life, NOW!
BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful…BE!
