We were born to be real not to be perfect. I often tell others I am far from perfect. I am human. Only God is perfect. I try each day to live life in alignment with the Divine. I am not perfect. I will cry when I am sad. I will feel pain if I am hurt. But, I will choose love over sadness, love over pain, and love over fear. I am REAL. I will be the first to share how shifting from fear to love has changed my life. I will share that in my pain I will give thanks for the opportunity to grow and learn from the lesson.
I am REAL. I have techniques which I use to help me live my life as real, as authentic as I possibly can. The day I choose love over living in an abusive relationship was the day I began living REAL. It was a big step for me to take because I had lived so many years trying to be "perfect" in the eyes of others, pretending to be in a happy relationship that looked like everything was "perfect" in the eyes of others. I spend so many years pretending to be "perfect" that I wasn't being "REAL" to myself.
I had lost myself. But the day came that my higher self trusted my inner guidance. The day came in which I knew I had to be "REAL", I had to be "ME" and stop pretending that there was nothing wrong. When you make the conscious decision to choose REAL (LOVE) over perfect (fear based thoughts) you begin to live and speak your truth.
I tell people all the time I am far from perfect. I have my moments in which I cry because of the damage parental alienation is causing in the relationship between my kids. I am a mother. It hurts. BUT that doesn't stop me from being REAL, living REAL, knowing that my vibration has to shift into a loving energy. I allow myself to release what no longer serves me. When I make this statement it is not to be taken that I release my kids. It means that the pain that I am experiencing does not serve my highest good. Yes, I allow myself to feel and release the pain and tears. Afterwards, I consciously shift my attention on living REAL. Real means crying when I need to cry. Real means being grateful, happy, and joyful in all circumstances of life.
