You know what you don’t want now that you’ve kissed a few toads and are ready for that prince, "Mr. Right". Now it’s time to think about what you do want and to do some self-reflection. Take your time with each question, perhaps with your pen and journal.
- What do you most value in a relationship? What does Mr. Right have that others don’t have?
- In what way have past relationships affected how you'd choose the right man now?
- What three things do you want more of in your life?
- Who have been your major role models? What do you admire most about them?
- What do you value most about yourself?
Are you feeling a little clarity around what you truly treasure in yourself and others? Are you beginning to have a stronger sense of what you are looking for in a relationship with Mr. Right? Now that you have an idea what vibe you would value in a partner, let’s look a little further. What direction would your relationship take?
- What would life with the right man look like day to day?
- What is your ideal self-image for the future?
- What would your image look like if you viewed it through the eyes of your ideal partner?
- What new possibilities exist if you allow yourself to be complete and vulnerable with your authenticity?
- What self-doubts are you ready to leave behind?
Is your vision coming into focus yet? Do you feel a sense of security, hope, joy, interest? It is said that your vibe attracts your tribe.
It is all too easy to fall into a sort of trance of low energy and self doubt. Beliefs about ourselves will either stunt our growth and capacity for love, or feed, shed light on, and expand those good, loving vibrations. A belief is just a thought you keep thinking – right or wrong. What we focus on grows and it is very beneficial to recognize the difference between affirming and diminishing thoughts. Practice catching them and make adjustments to maintain healthy, loving, life and light-affirming inner dialog.
Accept your uniqueness. Accept the things you aren’t thrilled with, too. They make you human. Keep to and embrace your own truth, both the things you struggle with, and your ideal well-being. Recognize your inner worth. Trust goodness in yourself, and learn to fill yourself with love. When you truly love yourself, your attitude will attract other healthy loving people -- in all areas of your life.
- How can you better recognize, accept and honor your true inner worth?
- What boundaries are sacred to you and how can you fortify them?
A favorite saying is, “What you think about you bring about.” Another is, "What you appreciate appreciates."
- What action can you take today to bring yourself joy?
- Who can you write a note of thanks to?
- What relationship can you enrich by paying more attention to and turning in toward the other?
- How can you remind yourself that life loves you and that “Mr. Right” is worth waiting for and that he’s waiting for you, too?
