If you looked for recognition with every work you did, then you would be waiting a long time to be satisfied. The recognition must come from within. You may see an abundance of recognition for a job well done, from others today, but the satisfaction will be short lived. No one can stand next to you and say "good job" every time you climb a mole hill. In fact, your main goal in life is not to seek recognition, but to be pleasantly surprised when it happens.
You should do things in life with all your power. With all your inner strength.
What are you really chasing after?
The recognition from other people can lead us down a path of great destruction. Is it for the better?
Well that is up to us to figure out. We make decisions within seconds and even if we take time to think about it, we still have the answer already picked, when we first hear of the question.
What we really are looking for is the recognition that what we are doing is correct. That what we have chosen will turn out okay.
Don't you think it will turn out okay?
I mean, Source gives us everything we need and want, so wouldn't it be okay with whatever we choose?
Your decisions do not affect anyone else. They only affect your reality. Everyone else still goes on living. They still move forward. There are those that are intertwined with our love and spirit, but they still make their own decisions. No matter how considerate you may be to their feelings, they do not pay your rent, car payment, and cell phone bill. You are in control and whether you are nice or not nice, you call the shots within your life.
What does all this have to do with the energy of today. Well, it is all about the person in your life that you are trying to please. Who's attention are you going after, and why are you letting them dictate the level of your happiness?
I know that if my love was to leave me, I would still go on living. I would still breath. I would still sleep in the dead of night. It is only a choice, a decision, a remark within this thing called Life.
Now, I am not advising you to go out and make all the bad decisions you want to make. As a matter of fact, if you are not happy right now with the way things are going, you are probably making some of the worst decisions possible, and in turn maybe it is time to turn things around.
I am simply advising you that the attention of someone else is short lived. They will want something or someone else in the process of trying to make them happy. This goes for anyone in your life such as family, friends, co-workers, a boss, or the pope.
Today is about living your life for yourself. Move forward for the recognition of you. Do it for yourself. Create with the intent that you are being taken care of and in turn everyone else will be taken care of as well. Your ability to be healthy will be reflected on those around you, and in turn they will recognize the potential to be healthy within them as well.
