Honor yourself. Honor your intuition. Honor your feelings. When you choose to live life honoring your feelings, you choose to live life with no regrets.
Many years ago, I lived a life full of hidden emotions. I didn’t want anyone to know how I felt and learned to adopt a poker face so that no one could read my emotions. I was the person everyone else turned to with their raw emotions and their problems. I was unable to share my own. After all, I was supposed to be the strong one for everyone else. How wrong I was. I did not honor my own feelings!
As a result of keeping myself tightly bound up in my cocoon of emotional protection, neither the bad feelings nor the good feelings could leak out into the outer world. What lessons I had to learn! Along came an angel friend who gently guided me to the loving world of Leo Buscaglia when she gave me his book Love. There were several lessons for me to learn. You see, others perceive me as striding forward confidently throughout life. Inside myself, I was a quivering mass of jello fears, shaking that someone might discover the truth of who I truly was. As a result I lived with plenty of regrets at not telling people in person how I honestly felt about them. Oh I wanted to, but I was so afraid of their reaction. I held back and stayed in my fear cocoon.
So here are the four main lessons I learned from Leo Buscaglia that may helped me on my journey.
4 Lessons to Live a Loving Life
- Love myself enough to honor my feelings.
- When I care for someone, to tell them I care for them.
- When I need a reassuring hug, hug someone else so we both feel great!
- Tell everyone you care about specifically what they mean to your world.
The last one is kinda like the warm fuzzies. If someone has done something that gives me the warm fuzzies, I tell them I appreciate them for doing ___. They feel good. I feel good. Win-win energy to go around! My wise father used to say “You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.” Fortunately I learned those lessons well decades ago. When people have left the earth to become angels, I know in my heart I have told them exactly what they have meant to me. I live life with no regrets.
That’s how you feed your own energy and that’s how you help to feed others positive energy. We all need to be needed. We all need to be appreciated. We all need to hear that others are grateful for something we have done for them. Therefore we need to let others know when we are grateful. Allow yourself to experience the joy in life you so richly deserve. You see this grows your happiness and joy bubble of bliss! So be an angel to someone in your world every day!
- Did you smile at yourself in the mirror today?
- Tell yourself at least four ways you already experience joy and happiness in your life.
- Who needs to hear that you love and appreciate them?
- Who in your world needs a hug?
