Are you respecting yourself? and if not who is? Read this and find out!

Aretha Franklin in the 60′s sang the words R.E.S.P.E.C.T that’s what it means to me, but there is a new and easier way to understand and define respect and it is W.I.V. Let me explain. I define respect as giving something Worth, Importance, and Value. In short I W.I.V. you. I respect you. I give you Worth, Importance, and Value. How do you know if you are being respected? By asking yourself is this person giving me worth, importance and value? Are you W.I.V.ing yourself? Are you giving your hopes, dreams, and aspirations the respect they deserve? If not then it is time to reconsider where you want to put your focus. Life is going by fast. W.I.V. yourself now, and the ones you love. If you do you cannot go wrong. If you are not being W.I.V.ed then you can do one of two things. You can teach yourself and others how you want to be treated and be held accountable or you can put your focus on someone or something else. Respect can be applied to your thoughts and actions. I wonder if Aretha Franklyn would have said W.I.V. that’s what it means to me had she read this blog. Ok I agree R.E.S.P.E.C.T. is more catchy in the song then W.I.V.. The question I will leave you with now is what are you doing to W.I.V. yourself more today?

I W.I.V. you and support you in living in the possibilities of life now!

It leaves the world a little brighter and our hearts a little lighter. My hope is that smiling will be so common and contagious that we may all need to wear sunglasses, because the light created from the smiles is blinding. With kindness, Stuart
