5 Relationships Worth Cultivating

Relationships. We all have them, some pleasant, others not so much. We invest time and effort into those connections that matter most.

But there’s five relationships we all tend to overlook, avoid or dismiss that when cultivated will absolutely elevate your energy, peace and happiness.

  1. Your relationship with your body and food.

Are you in a love/hate relationship with your body?  How do you talk to her, dress and care for her? 

Is food your drug of choice to numb pain or avoid difficult issues?

2. Your relationship with money.

Do you think in terms of scarcity or plenty? When it comes to your money beliefs, what’s your story?

Our beliefs often begin in childhood.  We grow up hearing adults say “I can’t afford it” or “money doesn’t grow on trees” or “I never have any money, I’m always broke” and believe this is an unchangeable fact for us as well.

Maybe you were told that wealth was only for a select few or that poverty was spiritual. That having little made you more in God’s eyes.

Money is a neutral tool. It can be a blessing or curse depending on how it’s managed and stewarded.

3. Your relationship with your past.

You past ended long ago but is it still showing up in your present and predicting your future? 

Self sabotage comes when we keep repeating the past instead of putting the past where it belongs, in the past.

4. Your relationship with your self-worth.

Would you describe your self-worth as dollar bin or a luxury boutique?  What’s your believed value of yourself?

It matters because you work from and project that value into everything you do.

5. Your relationship with God.

Is God an ever-present, loving father or a detached dictator waiting to punish you with every mistake? 

Is He the one you trust to shepherd you through each day, in dark valleys and celebratory times?

These are hard but powerful, life altering questions.

Paul knew a transformed life begins with a transformed mind which begins with a deep dive into your beliefs, how you think and what (or who) consumes your thoughts most. Rom 12:2

You can’t change what you won’t confront. Confronting old beliefs is how you change them.

Christ said “you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free.”  John 8:32 

Your relationship with your body and food, with money, your past, your self-worth and most importantly your walk with God can be reset to “factory settings” renewed, redesigned and ready for the next season of your life.     

You can start today deleting old data, forming new beliefs and habits that support you instead of sabotaging your efforts.

Can you imagine living in a body you love and respect? Seeing food as God’s provision to fuel you instead of a coping mechanism to numb or distract you from what’s really eating you up inside?  

What if your relationship with money created abundance without the guilt of having it or the fear of not having enough or losing what you do have?

Can you imagine walking through life fully confident in your value and worth?

What if your past helped you create a positive present instead of imprisoning you in yesterday’s shame?

How would you live knowing you had a doting Father who loves, protects and meets your needs daily?  

So what if you have a wonderful relationship with your body but not with wealth? Or struggle with your past but be perfectly at ease with money?
