“I WISH YOU ENOUGH!”

"I WISH YOU ENOUGH!" Recently, I overheard a Mother and Daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the Daughter's departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Mother said:
"I love you and I wish you enough.


“I WISH YOU ENOUGH!”

Recently, I overheard a Mother and Daughter in their last moments together at the airport as the Daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Mother said:
“I love you and I wish you enough.

“The Daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough.

Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom.” They kissed and the Daughter left. The Mother walked over to the window where I sat. Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry.

I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say Good-Bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied.
Forgive me for asking but why is this a forever Good-bye?

“I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is the next trip back will be for my funeral,” she said.

When you were saying Good-Bye, I heard you say, “I wish you enough.” May I ask what that means?

She began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to all of us.” She paused a moment and looked up as if
trying to remember it in detail and she smiled even more.

“When we said ‘I wish you enough ‘ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them”. Then turning toward me, she shared the following, reciting it from memory,

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hello’s to get you through the final good-bye’s.

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person. An hour to appreciate them. A day to love them. And an entire life to forget them.

We outgrow those who don’t appreciate us.

We outgrow those who don't appreciate us.


The truth is we outgrow those who don’t appreciate us.

Those who are okay with our absence.

Those who allow the distance between us and them to grow.

We outgrow those who make us feel like we’re replaceable.

The truth is we outgrow those who aren’t genuine with us.

Those who say things they don’t mean.

Those who talk the talk but can’t walk the walk when we need them beside us.

Those who only like a certain side of us but don’t want to accept all other sides.

Those who don’t care about our wants and needs because they’re too busy focusing on their own.

We outgrow those who make us feel like we’re not worth their time or effort.

Those who are capable of giving so much more but choose to be stingy with us.

Those who put us last on their list of properties.

We outgrow those who are lazy with us.

Those who take two steps backward every time we move one step forward.

The truth is we reach a point where we know who we are, what we want and what we deserve and we’re not willing to go back to selling ourselves short again.

We’re not willing to repeat the same vicious cycle of handing out our hearts to those who don’t know how to catch them.

The truth is we reach a point where our self-love trumps any other love.

We choose ourselves even when people don’t choose us.

The truth is we outgrow those who show us that they’re not invested.

That they don’t want to try.

We outgrow those who treat us like a pit stop until they find what they’re looking for.

We outgrow those who don’t make us feel like they’re glad they found us.

We outgrow those who don’t value us the way we want to be valued.

The truth is we’re capable of giving someone we love the world but all we need is the reassurance that they won’t abuse it, that our hearts are secure with them, that they won’t turn into another lie or another mistake.

The truth is we outgrow those who don’t know how to love us and we save our love for those who fall as hard as we do and catch us if we fall faster.

We outgrow those who tell us everything we need to hear but show us nothing.

We outgrow those who don’t love us because it took us years to learn how to love ourselves and we’re not ready to ruin that by being with people who make us question who we are or if we’re worthy of their love.

The truth is we outgrow those who aren’t afraid of losing us because they’ll never truly understand who we are and what kind of love we’re seeking.

They’ll never truly see us the way we want to be seen.

I sincerely hope that you are with or around people who truly love you and value you for who you are.

With all my love, wishing you health, peace, safety and empowerment please stay safe Joanne Wellington. 🙏💙

Respecting yourself and living with dignity makes us independent.

When you are alone in the world, the pitfalls are huge. It is important to develop an understanding and appreciation of the underlying character traits of one’s true self.
Dignity and Personality

The most important thing is still the beauty of dignity and our personality in life.

When you are alone in the world, the pitfalls are huge. It is important to develop an understanding and appreciation of the underlying character traits of one’s true self, and most importantly making life choices and decisions from that authentic aspect of a person’s personality.

Respecting yourself and living with dignity makes us independent

Be more motivated to live a life of authenticity and personal integrity despite whatever anyone else thinks about us. Setting boundaries and parameters for life is the best description of self-respect.

Learn to say “no” to what is no longer emotionally, mentally, or financially healthy. Gaining self-respect is about learning your worth and knowing your value. It is important for making sensible decisions that impact life and the lives of others connected to us.

At the end of the day, self-respect starts with you but is designed to have better interpersonal relationships. It is not just a pronouncement but an amalgamation of credibility to challenge oneself and then feel pride that comes with the accomplishments. A person with self-respect treats others how they want to be treated, and command respect in everything they do while laying down the foundation of truthful existence.

A person may be disrespected, ignored or looked down upon. It can happen to any of us, but the difference is that a self-respecting person would not accept this, nor would they let it go without some discussion on the injustice. This applies to all relationships too, whether personal or professional.

In the end, a life lived with dignity, despite the obstacles and impediments, is a life well-lived

Please choose a course that will really serve your life well because without all this knowledge or knowing life will be really difficult and tough .

Please take care and have a good day. Wishing you health, peace and empowerment always.

How To Get Happiness Back In Your Life:

How to get happiness back in your life ~ Eleven simple questions you can ask yourself today that will inspire you to look for the good in life.

11 Best Questions To Ask Yourself

Eleven simple questions you can ask yourself today that will inspire you to look for the good in life — things that are already working in your life now, and will make you appreciate and recognise them for their benefit and value. These questions will teach you how to get happiness back in your life by focusing on the right things.

As life gets busy or when sudden misfortunes arise, these things are sometimes overlooked and left unnoticed amidst the chaos of everyday living. Take the time to answer these questions below and feel how much you have to be thankful for right now. This will help shift your perspective by looking for what’s satisfying wherever you are, instead of what is missing, lacking, or not working. Let’s jump right in!

Question 1:

Who are the people I feel blessed to have met in my life?

This could be a family member, a friend, a teacher or mentor, or even a new acquaintance who has helped you in one way or another. As you take the time to name them one by one, feel the gratitude for having attracted them into your life and the appreciation for the unique being that they are to you. This could be anyone you have met in person or online, who has given or taught you something of value and assisted you in becoming a better person.

Question 2:

What things do I have right now that makes my life comfortable?

Look around you right now and notice what brings you comfort wherever you are. This could be the simplest things like the bed you slept on last night, the roof above your head, the relaxing bath you had this morning, or the meals that made your tummy satisfied. Up to the things you once desired that you now enjoy, like a fast internet connection, your access to a wide range of products and services all over the world, the ease of communicating to anyone regardless of distance, and the variety of avenues for pleasure and entertainment available to you.

Question 3:

What qualities or skills have I developed over time that I feel proud to have now?

This could be qualities such as kindness or generosity that you have practiced and has become the trait that people like about you. Or it could be your cleanliness or superb organizational skills that you just feel proud to be good at. Or it could be that you are a good listener and friends are comfortable to share stories with you, that you are humorous and fun to be around because you are very lighthearted and don’t take things too seriously that much, or that you are an avid learner and you just enjoy improving yourself in many areas of life. These qualities are very valuable to have but are oftentimes not given enough credit for what they’re worth.

Question 4:

What experiences have I had in my life that made me better than I was before?

These are experiences you have gone through in the past that make you feel thankful for the valuable lessons and insights they have provided for you. Recognizing them will make you see your experiences in a good light and the “blessings in disguise” that are present in those seeming contradictions in life. This could be your past relationships that have ended but made you love yourself even more, or a lost job opportunity which eventually led you to discover what you truly wanted to pursue in life.

Question 5:

What are the things I enjoy and love doing that I am able to do, either regularly or occasionally?

What things make you feel joyful and excited as you do them, and which you are capable and free to do from time to time? Maybe it’s reading a book by your favorite author, watching movies you like, trying out a new recipe by your favorite celebrity chef, buying a new wardrobe for yourself, or just laughing out loud with your friends over a cup of coffee. These could be simple but meaningful things you’re able to do from the comfort of your home, or alongside other people from time to time.

Question 6:

What desires, big or small, do I have in the past that I am already living right now?

These are desires that you want at one point in your life that have already manifested for you. It’s time to look back and remember the things you once wanted in the past that you already possess today. Perhaps a desire to take a cooking or art class, or your desire to start your own blog, or to improve your self-confidence and communication skills. It could also be opening up your first savings account or starting on your diet program. This could be any baby step that you’ve already accomplished for yourself or have successfully ticked off on your wish list.

Question 7:

What unique things do I like about me?

What personality trait or ability do you like most about you? What makes you distinctly who you are? Maybe having a very unique laugh that many find funny and contagious, or possessing a great memory that you find it very easy to retain information, or even being good at analyzing directions and navigating the road especially in new places. Look for these characteristics in yourself, and feel your self-love and self-esteem grow as you recognize your own hidden genius.

Question 8:

What made me smile or laugh today?

Think of three things that made you feel good today. Could be a Facebook post from a friend that made you laugh so hard, a very adorable baby on your Instagram feed, a surprise call or message from a distant relative you haven’t talked to for awhile, or just the nice and comfortable weather as you’re relaxing at home today. Notice these subtle things around you that are worth feeling grateful for today.

Question 9:

What things worked out for me this week?

These are things at home or at work that went smoothly and successfully for you. Your laundry finished on time, check. Your weekly house cleaning done, check. Requirements for a certain project already submitted, check. Groceries for the week done and complete, check.

And as you notice all the things working out, you will vibrate toward success and appreciation more and more. This will create more good things coming to you with great success as well.

Question 10:

What kind of help have I offered anyone, tangible or intangible?

What good things have you done for somebody else? Offering helpful advice for a friend in need, assisting a co-worker on a certain project you have some knowledge about, giving directions to a stranger who’s new in town, offering food to a homeless child, donating your old clothes to charity, or even just giving a helping hand to your mom as she’s doing household chores. Notice that as you offer help and kindness to another, you are also giving that positive energy to yourself.

Question 11:

What do I appreciate about life in general?

This last question will allow you to look from a broader perspective of your life and take note of the things that feel good about being alive, here and now. These can include the most general things such as the sun coming up this morning, your heart continuously beating, nature continuously growing to support life, or your body effortlessly functioning and doing well without your supervision. Notice all of this magic in life, and feel how blessed and worthy you are to be alive at this time.

Conclusion

Big or small, your every answer to these questions is counted, and each one adds up to the blessings that are continuously piling up for you. In time, it will be easy for you to know how to get happiness back in your life whenever you fall back into unhappiness thinking.

What you focus upon grows. So make it your daily habit to continuously focus on the good that is already in your life and watch it grow to even bigger, greater things. And in time, you will gradually lean towards looking for the good in life and always seeing your world in a positive light.
