Phenomenal Friday-Be The Change You Wish To See In Others


“Let today be the day that you decide your contribution, to yourself, your relationship and the world.”  ~Yvette N Treco

Ask a dozen people what they wish there was more of in the world. Each will probably give you a different answer, some may say they want world peace, more empathy and love. Ask them what they want in a partner and the list grows even longer. When you think about choosing someone you hope to spend the rest of your life with, there are many attributes you want that person to possess. You want them to be romantic, honest, fun loving, caring, open minded, family and goal oriented.

While you’re wishing for a perfect world, searching for that perfect partner. How do you stack up against your own demands? Are you the source of everything that you desire?

Until you find in yourself everything you seek in others, you will never find it. Your perfect relationship will forever be elusive and the world will always be perceived as a cold unsympathetic place.

Are you ready  to “Be the change that you wish to see in the world?”

    Hello Etta,
    This is so lovely. I’ve been on a very big journey of discovery and finally have found some peace within myself to accept me as me. From that place I can now be more present, less defensive and understanding where people are coming from if they say things that once had me reeling.
    It’s such a truth that you have articulated here.
    It’s a brilliant topic. I’m hooked.
    Thank you for a great post,
    Sending my best wishes to you,
    Di 💐🙋🏻
