Everything happens for a reason and me today, I strongly believe this, but before there were times when I really questioned if this is true. In the laws of attraction and the Secret it says that positive attracts positive and negative attract negative. It also mentions how people question how they could attract something so negative and have a hard time believing it.
In any relationships whether it’s with family, loved ones and friends we go through a growing process and learning how to work with this relationship and how it entwines into our lives. As we learn and understand our appreciation and love for each other grows too. Every person has a story, and everyone has their sad chapters, some more than others and sadly some who have a whole lot. Every relationship takes patience, understanding and time. When you work with someone in any community and from any position we have to learn to listen to understand, keep an open heart, mind and ears. Do not assume and do not judge, if you don’t know then ask questions and keep your heart, mind, and ears open to learn. It’s going to take patience, understanding and time.
Listen and read to learn, not to respond, argue or prove a point that you only have one perspective on. We are always so quick to let our emotions get the best of us that they take away the opportunity to learn something new, connect with someone or something and grow. Don’t take what others do or say personally is a teaching that I am reminding myself of a lot, especially now stepping into another new business adventure. I know I am ruffling people’s feathers, a lot of my own people are asking who Amanda Kennedy is and who does she think she is and what does she think she is doing.
A lot of times people assume, I myself am guilty of doing this too. We assume that we know what the other person is thinking or not thinking. We assume that they are lying, or looking for a handout, or using us. When someone walks in our office or space we don’t have a clue what happened to them an hour, a day, or years before they entered that room.
When we step out of our comfort zone we start thinking outside of the box. You need to expand yourself and take yourself out of your comfort zone because if you stay there you can’t grow. Success is a very uncomfortable procedure and when you start to create change, chaos comes, it’s part of the process, it’s all about balancing out.
We all make mistakes and in todays World we are programmed to look at ourselves as bad people and to judge others. In reality I wish that when I was a youth someone told me “you are going to make a lot of mistakes and fail in life however learn from those experiences, see your worth and allow yourself to grow”.
I am getting into facilitating and educating people of all ages from all walks of life and it’s such a blessing and great learning experience. I know that a lot of people that I talk to walk away feeling inspired however have heavy hearts from the truth that they hear. I am so proud of them for taking a big step to create change and I decided to start writing blogs in hopes of continuing to help people after they attend one of my circles or workshops, or anyone who is in need of extra guidance and support.
