Appreciation Denied

When was the last time you actually took the time to truly say thank you
Not a crap, off the cuff, unfeeling thank you
But really took the time and energy to notice

The little things
The big things
The love
The concern
And everything in between

Your lack of appreciation outwards is a reflection of your appreciation inwards

You don’t appreciate the little things within yourself and so how could you ever truly appreciate the little things within another.

You don’t have gratitude for your own efforts and so you blow by all the efforts of others

Not seeing them or instead minimizing, diminishing, or turning them sinister

You smother the love that you so crave because you don’t slow down enough to appreciate and truly see it being offered. Instead you hyper-focus on the type of love you want and it’s scarcity. Giving a big F U to those holding out their hands in offering. Missing what truly is present

You smother the love for yourself because you don’t slow down enough to appreciate self. Instead your beat yourself down. And without realizing it you beat down those around you as well. You take back your love. You second-guess. You close down. A closed down heart is an ungrateful heart. An unappreciative heart. A heart that has lost it’s connection with self.

And in this closing down you close down your sight for the beauty and the gifts. This beauty and gifts are straight from God… and you spit on them!

You can turn this around. You can revel in the offerings of other, of self, and of God.
God wants us to appreciate. In true HEARTFELT (key word!!!) appreciation God rains more blessings down upon us.

More love
More abundance
More blessings
More BLISS

When was the last time you looked yourself in the eyes and said, ‘thank you’. Thank you for being you. Thank you for waking up each morning and striving to grow. Thank you for falling down in order to get back up stronger. Thank you for seeing your shit!

And when was the last time you saw the efforts of another and just stopped. Stopped and said a true thank you. Told that person that they do matter and let them feel seen. Said thank you for another showing you their heart AND their struggle. Thanked another for just being them!

Go out in appreciation today.
Go step into a sense of acknowledgement
Go see the world and much more importantly self with a heart of gratitude.

And step into greater bliss TODAY @ https://addisonbell.net/bliss-coaching/

Detailed Avoidance

You’re blocking the message and you know it!

You’re running from it and trying to hide in every corner possible and yet you say that you want the growth, the change, the blissful life.

You think you want it.
You think you are listening.
You think you are in alignment.

But really you are hiding. Really you are avoiding the issue.
You are focusing in on the small meaningless aspects.

You are getting caught up…
On semantics of words.
On the little nuances.
On your pride.
On your Ego.

Instead you debate… internally and externally.
Instead you do everything BUT what needs to be done.

You are doing all of this to avoid the discomfort. I get it!
I do it too. We all do!
But it’s the recognition that sometimes we are sweating the small stuff.

You are casting the whole painting as crap
But really you are only focused in on one splash.
The painting is too profound.
You might have to getting uncomfortable with the power.
So better not look at all!

Instead let’s smoke, drink, social media, or overwork
Instead let’s live another day disconnected
Instead let’s take external action but not make any changes in the internal
Instead let’s pick apart another’s message apart to not have to hear them
Instead let’s bitch, complain, and wish…wish, and wish, and wish

But God forbid let’s not actually change. Let’s not actually put our Egos away in order to really listen and get the message that we are needing.

I do it. You do it. It’s time to face it.
Not shame ourselves.
Not go even deeper into our Ego B.S.

No it’s time to simply see it for what it is! And make the changes we need to make. Open our perspective up and steep back from the painting. See all the brush strokes together. To ask our hearts and our souls what we are meant to be getting from each interaction and moment.

Asking, “What is my message here?”

To discover what you are needing to look at and where your particular escape from your messages is coming from in your life.

You are meant to receive your messages with ease and clarity.
You are meant to always know the next right step.
You are meant to have the blissful life.

If only you give yourself permission to step back from the details and be penetrated.

Orgasmic Hair Pampering!

I’m getting my hair done and it feels great. I love the feel of the brush being dragged through my hair and the small tug. I love the sensation having my hair brushed and played with brings throughout my body. I love the focused attention that I am receiving and getting to just let go for a few minutes while I revel in the beauty of the touch and feeling of being pampered.

It’s one thing to pamper self. I’m a huge advocate and always tell clients to engage in self care. BUT there is something magical about another person pampering you. There is just a feeling of surrender and relaxing that happens when you allow someone else to step up and help you enjoy the moment. There is a receptivity that is impossible when pampering self and a level of a gifting. Read more
