Love and menopause are rarely used in the same sentence. Much like comfort and change. I am writing this post for you ladies who are having your menopause emotional challenges. I am sharing an interview about asking yourself the tough “LOVE” questions with the hopes that understand that you choose “to be loving” during this time of change. Everyone wins when you do!
A few years ago, while watching the Today Show, I listened to Meredith Viera interview Jennifer Lopez about her soon-to-be released album called “Love?“. Asked about the title of her album and the question mark, Jennifer Lopez said that it came from “being in such a good place” and “always questioning yourself when it comes to happiness.” She went on to say that after giving birth to her twins, she felt “a deeper love” and started questioning things….Am I loving in the right way? Am I being loved in the right way? You still have questions; there’s still so much to learn. Love is the answer but it’s also a question.”
Jennifer has been voted the most beautiful woman in the world and you can see why. She does not only work at keeping her outside looking fabulous, she also works on her spiritual self, too. She understands that happiness is an inside job. She is also brave enough to ask herself the tough questions.
Are you brave enough to ask yourself those tough questions about love? Allowing yourself to get to your love truth can be quite freeing. Sometimes we are just not aware that we have closed off love to a friend, family member or to ourselves. There are many reasons we close off love- when we want to change someone or ourselves, when we are listening to our “liar” ego mind, when we are not forgiving ourselves or others- just to name a few. Asking yourself a few key questions can allow you to see if you are in the loving, connecting flow or stuck in being right and cut off! Remember every decision we make takes us to love or away from love and everyone is seeking love. When one is loving everyone wins!
I challenge you to take a few minutes in the evening and ask yourself these love questions and evaluate your loving for that day. If you do not like what you have done or you can see where you can be more loving, set an intention for the next day which will allow you to love more. See if you do a better job at choosing love the next day. There are a plethora of ways to love- being accepting, being grateful, acts of kindness, smiling, listening, and sharing are a good start.
Remember when you are not loving, it is like you are taking the poison expecting some else to die! Stress is caused by closing off our love and listening to our Ego mind. Give yourself a gift. Allow yourself to have less stress in your life. Start loving and start flowing and connecting to peace and happiness.
Love Questions for the End of the Day
♥ Was I loving in the right way today?
♥ Was I loving myself in the right way today?
♥ Was I being loved in the right way today?
♥ Was I forgiving myself and others today?
♥ Did I choose to be grateful today?
♥ Did I choose to accept a difficult person or situation today?
Here are just a few, feel free to add more. After a week or so, I am sure you will feel more loving and connected. You will also be experiencing much more happiness and peace in your life in your second adulthood.
