Never outgrow love

A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it!

We were made to love and to be loved. It is a deep and essential need.

Yet sometimes, we speak with scorn about people who appear emotionally needy. They seem immature. Aren't there areas where we are vulnerable and need, too?

Is maturity really a measure of our ability to hide our needs?

With open eyes with a sense of humour, we can find appropriate ways to received and give more love.

We begin with loving ourselves and grow from there, discovering we can love others with our own boundaries intact.

I will never outgrow my need for love, and I recognize and respect that those around me need love too.

there are those who are so scrupulously afraid of doing wrong that they seldom venture to do anything.

Perfectionism can be paralysing.
Afraid to mess up, we find it impossible to try anything new.

Instead of limiting ourselves to a familiar routine where everything is under control,
we can be kind to ourselves and welcome the opportunity to learn and make mistakes.

Trying something new,
we're bound to be messy,
but we'll get so much out of it as we stretch our thinking.

It's fine for us to make mistake -
and we know we will as we explore the unfamiliar.

I will let go of my perfectionism at times so I am free to try something new.

Asking what if

Asking what if, a dreamer- you know- it's a mind that looks over the edge of things.

The day dreaming mind asks, "what would happen if...?'
It also doodles with thought, following no specific path.
Perhaps as children, we aware told not to daydream.

It was considered lazy.

The dreamer knows that much can be accomplished in that seemingly frivolous time.
The oldest musings bubble to the surface while daydreaming.

When we let our curiosity and creativity come out to play,
we increase the likelihood that we'll have clever ideas throughout out routine hours.

We need time to let our mind wander, dream, and wonder, “what if?”

Letting ourselves dream, we give ourselves permission to entertain any idea and possibility.

and you know what I've been up to today.....
