IT'S ALL IN THE JOURNEY....

WHAT WILL THE NEW YEAR BRING TO YOU THIS YEAR?


THIS IS A QUESTION WHICH IS DAUNTING AS, SOMETIMES, THE ONLY THING WE CAN DO IS TO LIVE IN THE MOMENT.

SO, WITH THAT IN MIND, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PLAN YOUR MOMENTS, OR ARE YOU GOING TO 'FLY BY THE SEAT OF YOUR PANTS' LIKE I DO MOST OF THE TIME!!!



WITHIN THE PAST SIX MONTHS, I HAVE FOUND THAT MY CHARACTER TRAITS EXACTLY FIT THOSE OF AN 'EMPATH'.  BELOW IS THE LINK TO THE TRAITS OF AN EMPATH.

http://themindunleashed.org/2013/10/30-traits-of-empath.html



AND, WITHIN THE PAST THREE WEEKS, I HAVE FOUND THAT MY PERSONALITY CHARACTERISTICS POINT ME IN  THE DIRECTION OF BEING AN INFP PERSONALITY TYPE.

THERE ARE 16 PERSONALITY TRAITS FORMATTED BY A MOTHER/DAUGHTER TEAM NAMED MEYERS BRIGGS PERSONALITY TESTING.  THEY BASED A LOT OF THEIR WORK FROM CARL JUNG.

  I AM POSTING BOTH LINKS TO THE 16 PERSONALITY TYPES, AND ALSO THE LINK TO TAKE THE FREE PERSONALITY TEST.  (AND NO, I DO NOT GET ANY RECOGNITION FOR POSTING THESE LINKS.  I FOUND THEM DOING MY OWN RESEARCH).

WWW.16PERSONALITIES.COM/PERSONALITY-TYPES

WWW.16PERSONALITIES.COM/FREE-PERSONALITY-TEST



THE TWO CHARACTERISTIC PERSONAS (THAT OF THE EMPATH AND THE INFP PERSONALITY TYPE, WHICH IS WHAT I AM) GO HAND IN HAND.

MAYBE YOU WILL FIND OUT A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF IN THE PERSONALITY TRAIT TEST.  IT WILL TELL YOU YOUR STRENGTHS AND YOUR WEAKNESSES, AND ALL PERSONALITIES HAVE THEIR OWN BEAUTY.  THE WORLD WOULD BE A DULL PLACE INDEED IF WE ALL WENT AROUND LIKE ROBOTS!

SO, IF YOU HAVE TAKEN THE TEST, THEN BECOME WHO YOU ARE! REALIZATION WILL BEGIN TO MAKE YOU AWARE OF POSSIBLY WHY YOU DO WHAT YOU DO, WHO YOU ARE, AND THAT IS GOOD!  BRANCH OUT AND DISCOVER YOUR CALLING IN LIFE.


 LIFE IS ABOUT FINDING OUT WHO WE ARE, AND WHEN WE BEGIN TO SEE THE ROAD AHEAD, IT MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO FACE REALITY, AND ALSO TO IMAGINE OUR DREAMS IN ORDER TO MAKE THEM COME TRUE.




AND LIFE HAS IT FAIR SHARE OF TRIALS TOO.



BUT FOR THE EMPATH, SINCE PEOPLE ARE BORN EMPATHS, THERE IS NO DESCRIPTION IN WIKIPEDIA AS IT IS NOT A PSYCHOLOGICAL EVENT THAT HAPPENS OVER TIME TO AN INDIVIDUAL.  YOU ARE EITHER AN EMPATH OR YOU ARE NOT.

BUT THIS IS WHAT MAKES LIFE SO INTERESTING!  WITH SO MANY DIFFERENT AND VARIED PERSONALITIES AMONG PEOPLE, NO TWO PEOPLE ARE EVER TRULY ALIKE.  WE ALL HAVE OUR INHERITED TRAITS TOO, AND WHATEVER LIFE HANDS US IS ALL PART OF WHAT MAKES US WHO WE ARE.

THE KEY IS IN OVER COMING DIFFICULTIES, OR IN FINDING OUT HOW TO GET ALONG WITH OTHERS, OR TO LET GO OF THOSE WHO DISAPPOINT US, EVEN IF IT IS IN DOING OUR OWN THING IN ORDER TO SURVIVE

  IF WE NEED TO SEPARATE OURSELVES FROM SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT INTERESTED IN WHO WE REALLY ARE, THEN IT IS TIME TO EITHER DISTANCE OURSELVES, EVEN IF IT IS TO CREATE A PLACE FOR OURSELVES EVERYDAY, SOMEWHERE WE CAN GET AWAY AND JUST 'BE' OURSELVES.  IT CAN BE AT THE LIBRARY, OR THE MALL, OR THE MOUNTAINS, OR THE OCEAN, OR A MUSEUM, JUST TO BE BY YOURSELF, TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF.  GO BE OUT IN NATURE AND BREATH IN THE AIR! OR GO TO BED EARLY AND READ A BOOK, OR WATCH A MOVIE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN. OR BE THE WORK ALCOHOLIC YOU WERE BORN TO BE! IT'S OKAY! ENJOY LIFE!

AND I PRAY TO GOD, THAT IF ANY ARE TRULY HAVING SERIOUS LIFE TRIALS THAT THEY CAN FIND HELP IN THE TIME OF THEIR NEED.  GO TO A PLACE OF WORSHIP YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH, AND SEEK SOMEONE OUT WHO HELPS PEOPLE.  SEARCH AND FIND A SUPPORT GROUP, A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, IF ONLY FOR A SHORT DURATION TO ENDURE WHATEVER IT IS YOU ARE FACING IN YOUR LIFE, WHETHER IT IS SICKNESS, POVERTY, HOMELESSNESS, ABUSE OF ANY KIND (YES, ALL OF THIS IS OUT THERE IN BIG NUMBERS!) DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO SURVIVE.  THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE OUT THERE TO HELP THOSE GOING THROUGH CRISES.  THERE ARE CRISES INTERVENTION ONLINE SITES TOO.  



IF WE BEGIN TO REALIZE WE HAVE MADE SOME MISTAKES IN LIFE, NOT DUE TO ANY FAULT OF OUR OWN, BUT BECAUSE WE ARE FINALLY FINDING OUT WHO WE TRULY ARE, AND LIFE'S EXPERIENCES, AND PEOPLE, AND EVENTS IN OUR LIFE BEGIN TO FORM US INTO WHO WE TRULY DESIRE TO BE, IT IS THEN, THAT OUR PATH BEGINS TO BECOME CLEARER FOR US, AND WE MOVE AHEAD WITH RESOLVE TO BECOMING OUR OWN PERSON, AND THIS CAN HAPPEN AT ANY AGE IN LIFE, YOUNG OR OLD.



WE ARE ALWAYS 'BECOMING'.  WE ARE ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD.  WE ARE ALWAYS LEARNING, AND THAT MAKES US WISE.   IF WE CAN ALWAYS LISTEN TO THAT SMALL VOICE OF ENCOURAGEMENT WITHIN OURSELVES, IT IS THERE TO BRIGHTEN OUR PATH AND TO SHOW US THE WAY.

 IT IS OKAY TO ACCEPT YOURSELF, TO LOVE YOURSELF AS IT DOES SHOW THAT YOU CARE DEEPLY ABOUT YOUR OWN LIFE AND SOMETIMES THAT IS THE BEST ANSWER TO YOUR OWN PATH IN LIFE.

BE SURE TO STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES ALONG THE WAY.

HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!

And I do need to acknowledge that first and foremost, I am a sinner saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, who loved me and gave himself for me, which also gives me access to the 'still, small, voice' of the Spirit which also calms me, and gives me insight into this journey called Life.

Dear Teresa, My eldest daughter, and are are both empaths. We are very connected to the spiritual side of our personalities, and feel things many do not. This isn't to say that we also don't fly by the seat of our pants..we do, especially me. I find it much easier not to eternalize my feelings, unlike her.Since I was a child, I could "sense" things, about intention, about impending doom, and about greatness. It was confusing at times, but none the less, I came to realize, that not all people are forthcoming, and not all people are good, but there are more good intentions than bad, and more good souls, than evil. If you have time, please go to youtube, and watch Jim Carey "intentions" interview with Oprah. It might explain a lot for you. Fairy Blessings, Christel

This is a really terrific post, Teresa. I loved when you said "We are always becoming. We are always moving forward." So true -- all the quotes and images here just fit so perfectly and there is much to ponder n your words.

On another note, a belated thank you to your recent comment on Marmelade Gypsy -- Thanks so much for the info and the caring words!

Happy weekend!

Yay! INFP! We'd band together if we weren't so introverted! Hugs for you, Teresa!
