✔️Those moments when you make a mess of it all and have to face your shadows
✔️Those moments when you wish you could rewind time an hour, a week, months prior and make alterations
✔️Those moments that are so earth shaking that you find yourself suddenly awake when you never realized you were asleep
✔️Those moments of confusion when you are shaky and uncertain
✔️Those moments that you want to rip your chest open to get to the aching heart beating inside your chest
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
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.
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/

This is how we treat our relationships
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
I wait for my coffee to finish brewing and glance out my window into the grey cloudy sky. Behind the clouds you can see the morning sun wanting to peak through and light up the sky.
The clouds are swirling and passing and I find myself enthralled at their graceful movement through the sky. Read more
I feel the tears rolling down my cheeks as the intense amounts of energy is releasing in my body. I feel my entire being trembling from the tips of my toe to the hairs on my head… and everywhere in between. I feel the emotions from the energy release rising in my chest and begging for me to surrender into.
👑Who Made You King of Anything? 👑
You sit there telling me about me.
Yet, you don’t even truly know me.
You judge me based upon the little pieces that I have allowed you to see of me. You think you know all about me but you know nothing.
You have this distorted fantasy of who I am, where my hang-ups are, and who I need to be
Who made you King of Anything??
Who made your word more powerful than my own? Your desires more worthy? Read more
💝You Love The Idea of Me! 💝
I get told all the time by people that they love me.
And I love to be loved but the truth is that most of them don’t really love me…
They don’t love me because they don’t really know me
They love the idea of me that they have created in their head
It is a figment of their imagination and has nothing to do with me.
I’ve told by clients consistently that they love me but they don’t have to sit with me in my dark and scary moments. My moments of drowning in my ego where it’s hard to get a breath. When they see these things they turn away. These times where I am lazy, unsexy, emotional, and angry. They love the idea of me…
