"Life Strategies" by Dr. Phil McGraw is very helpful with this subject of "life laws" one of which is "You teach people how to treat you." Another way I've heard it said is "If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got." Sadly I put up with that a little longer than I should, but eventually the light got through!
Glad to know we've done some of these....but plan on doing many more! :)
Like an older tree, the longer our roots, the stronger our branches. Branches alone are weak and will break easily in the storm, but supported by solid roots become strong and able to withstand the fierce elements of nature. The individual branch is wonderfully unique but connected to its roots, it becomes amazingly beautiful.
i would be content with that
