Day 4 Can

25 08 2012

Last night I got to be a bouncer at the North Texas Fair Road Beer Ticket booth. It was awesome people watching and I realized I m getting older. Most of the people buying beer wore born in 1990 or 1991. I told one girl that she was so young and she said when were you born I told her 1975 she said oh my God that was back in black and white TV. SO that sums up that I had nothing to more to say. Just FYI if your a single guy and can’t find a date there just give up.

Had a few great meetings today. Very thankful for the people that God has allowed in my life when I decided to except them. I missed many opportunities in my life because I was so closed off from the world.

Moving onto Rule 3:

There are no mistakes just lessons. When I started to make all of my changes I said here are all the mistakes I made. I know that I ve learned from my failures than successes. No matter what action I took I never knew how the situation would turn out but at least I gave myself an opportunity to fail or succeed. I know I felt so much great disappointment and anger when my plans fell through. I always felt I failed.Even though its normal to jump to this depressing conclusion all we do  is impede our ability to progress in life.

Since I now try to view my hardships of life-disappointments, failed marriage, illness, losses, bankruptcy, other tragedies and chances to learn I am and will become empowered. You can’t become empowered until you can learn compassion. I always thought I was compassionate but I wasn’t. Compassion is opening your heart lowering my emotional barriers and connect with others by seeing them in a light of not what the world says they are but what God sees them as.

Every lesson (not mistake) happens so you can learn. nothing more nothing less.

Life is a 5000 piece jigsaw puzzle that you open the box and dump the pieces on the floor. Some pieces go under the couch and you cant find them. Some never seem to fit and sometimes yo just get tired of looking at the puzzle. In the jigsaw puzzle of life love is what its all about.

Never tell someone that you don’t love the, never loved them, or their not loveable. As I continue to grow what my ex said to me about not loving me or not sure she ever did is the hardest part of me to stitch up. There is no one that doesn’t want to be loved. I want want to be loved more than anything and I know as time comes and goes I will begin to feel that. Its a stitch on a heart that’s the easiest to come apart and the hardest to stay closed.

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

 

Pass this on.

Do you know what the opposite of “Love” is?
I ask people this all the time…. They ALWAYS say “Hate”….

But it’s not “Hate”.

The opposite of “Love” is not “Hate” it’s “Indifference”….

It’s what you feel about the person you just walked by… Nothing.

Remember that next time you think of your ex-wife telling you that she may never have loved you… She loved you once… And maybe just chose to stop loving you… Maybe she became indifferent… It happens…. But don’t believe she NEVER loved you…. She did.

I don’t know if that helps or not, but I hope it does. 🙂

Surviving the affair....the cheaters perspective

I cheated. Yip I did it, I am not proud of it, but that won't change a thing. This is my story of me trying to survive one day at a time. No guarantees....
