♥ DAILY LOVE TIP – Tuesday January 17, 2012

In fact, how about considering a good habit to make is not to be critical about big things as well as the small things.............remember the ♥ DAILY LOVE TIPSaturday January 7, 2012: S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G & S-Q-U-I-R-M-I-N-G & getting precious ♥needs met [here's the link]

- all frustrations and criticisms contain a hidden desire or need and our task is to unpack the frustration and criticism and translate it into a REQUEST for a CHANGE in BEHAVIOUR......

.......and so eliminate ALL criticism!

Love Letter to the World Art Print (free download) : http://www.kindovermatter.com/2010/10/freebie-alert-printable-love-letter-to.html:
Words by Kate Swoboda

I think this poster is a great conversation starter......

In the face of complaints,
selfishness,
insults,
disconnection,
laziness,
extremism or fundamentalism,
controlling behaviour,
"always needing to be right",
arrogance or bravado,
drama or attention seeking,
accusation,
judgement or comparisons,
passive-aggressiveness,
anger...........
In the face of ferocious hatred, believe in the possibility that there exists the potential for equally as big, intense, lovely and fiery ferocious L O V E.

I really value her re-framing of all of the above......maybe some I would re-frame a little differently.... what about you♥  What other negative characteristics would you include and the re-frame♥

 

Feeling a bit sad and weighed down at the moment by the number of people who put so much effort into 'the small things' and take up so much 'space' and energy.........when there are so many people who are experiencing deep and life-threatening pain who need our attention and care........

And Yes!!.... those who know me, know that I believe in the possibility that there exists within it all the potential for "equally as big, intense, lovely and fiery ferocious [unconditional]  ♥L O V E."  .......a thoughtful Susie.

Ask yourself whether it will matter a year from now is such a powerful quote. I think also for me, living each day as if it may be your last was also powerful and only made sense when my father died. So let’s be happy. Want a laugh♥ Amanda Gore is fabulous!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch♥v=bqRn81WFUr4&feature=related

Hey Susie
Sitting here on my old verandah, rosie the dog at my feet, sipping a lovely chilled wine, no breeze down here at the coast, the beach would be beautiful and calm right now, its been a long day so no walk for Rosie tonight, she is getting enough practice barking at the dogs as they go by….
Anyway – Love letter to the world is something I had not seen before, I really liked it, so simply put and something sweetly delicious about it, maybe the nutshell aspect of it appeals to me, sort of like a checklist of where my headspace may be.

Sorry to hear you feel sad and weighed down, life just IS like that sometimes isnt it, my description for a day like that- it was a bastard of a day- something my Dad used to say, emphasis on BASTARD, in his Yorkshire accent. Hope it feels lighter for you tomorrow
Love and butterflie wings to you, Hilary
Oh i finally found the follow-up comment, thingy

Susie, I love the picture at the end encouraging us to spend time with those we love. That is a BIG focus of my life and I always want to remember to do that!! As a matter of fact, we are getting snow here in Seattle these past few days with more predicted and I hope to spend extra time with family during these days!!! Yay!!
