“We accept the love we think we deserve.”
-The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
As Valentine’s Day approaches once again, I am reminded of the gratitude I have towards my relationship with God and for my husband Wade. I didn’t get married until I was 39, which was unusual for a girl from a small town in Kansas. However, I am grateful I waited until I was older because I had A LOT to learn about myself and life first.
Through the years of dating, I did accept the love I thought I deserved, which many times left me brokenhearted and asking, “What did I do this time?!”
Looking back now, I realize my former boyfriends were all a perfect part of the Divine plan for me to learn the lessons I needed, before meeting Wade. Even though many of the lessons were painful, I’m sure God was rolling his eyes at me a few times, I do believe the Universe put these men in my path, to help me fine tune what I wanted in a life partnership. Once I made the decision to not settle for less than I desired, God brought me Wade.
Many times we think we are waiting on God to fulfill an area of our lives, “tick tock!”, but in reality, God is waiting for us to recognize our worthiness.
I believe through the law of attraction, we attract people and experiences into our lives according to the self-esteem we have in that particular area. Once we realize we are WORTHY of our heart’s desires, whether it be a soul mate, a new career, a healthy body or increased prosperity, we begin to attract the things in our lives we FEEL we deserve.
If you are vibrating at a high level, filled will self-esteem, than the right partner is going to align with your vibration and the two of you will collide in divine timing. If you are vibrating at a lower level and the partner who is yours by divine right is vibrating at a higher level, you could easily miss each other, like two planes passing over each other in the night.
So when it comes to accepting the love you think you deserve, I hope you will let go of the non-committal partners, the untrustworthy partners, the out of town”sometime” partners and announce to the Universe, that you only want to date people who match your high vibration of self-respect and relationship commitment level. No more “throw a dog a bone” relationships, where you are satisfied to have just a shred of a someone, because that is all they are willing to give you.
If you know you deserve the best, the BEST will find you! Self-love, self-love, self-love……the magnet for all things good.
