alone in the water it stood
tall, strong and fearless
ravaged by wave after powerful wave
as if the water’s deepest desire was to bring her crashing down
she bravely faced each torrent
as the waves wore at the surface
her strength flickered
but her beauty remained
when we quiet our world
only then can we can hear God whisper…..
when we quiet our mind
only then can our soul speak and be heard
nature speaks to us in so many ways…..
….but only when we are humble enough to receive it.
true love is not easy, in fact it is down right hard.
loving someone when everything is going well is easy, so easy it makes me laugh.
real love is when you stick around for the hard stuff.
the real hard stuff isn’t financial troubles or family squabbles…..
if you are physically well, you can work two jobs, it might be hard but, if you are healthy it is doable.
family issues can be worked out if you have the health to endure them or capable to physically pick yourself up and move.
but illness………it shakes you to the core. lives are transformed in an instant, roles change, individuals get lost in the symptoms leaving the caretaker to fed for themselves in a sea of uncertainty.
only with true love do you have the freedom to heal.
Today, may you experience a sense of healing, no matter how small.
…….choose the music that will heal your soul.
Like so many other people on this small planet, I take the beginning of a new year to set out goals that I hope to accomplish over the next year. I have a lot of them, eat healthier, move my body more, spend more time in nature, save more money, pay down debt, read more books, spend more time with God and go on more dates with my husband. As I was mulling over what it is I would like to accomplish this year, I realized that I really just need to spend more time doing the good stuff and less time doing the bad stuff. Yep, that about sums it up!
Wishing all of you a very blessed New Year! May you reach your goals………
January 1st, 2018 I decided to make a resolution not to watch any TV news. I made this resolution half joking, saying it mainly out of frustration of all the depressing stories I heard day after day. What I discovered after a few weeks was that I felt a bit better. My anxiety dropped and I spent less time watching TV. It was a wonderful experience/experiment and one I plan to carry on in 2019 as part of my……..do more of good and and less of the bad activities.
Wishing you a year of more good stuff in your life!
As we enjoy the beautiful lights this holiday season, let us remember what this time is truly about. Please take a few moments out of the next month to think about those who are less fortunate and make a plan on how to help. Small actions on your part can make a huge impact on others’ lives.
Those (in need)
Now go let your beautiful inner light shine onto others!
Only when humanity cares enough, will there be less sorrow.
It’s up to us…….
May you be the smile in someone’s day.
During this holiday season, let us all remember that there are so many people who are hurting and need HOPE. Let us be their HOPE. Your acts of kindness, no matter how small, may change the course of a person’s life.
