Take nothing for granted

I was very moved by the film “Remember Me”. It was a great reminder to never, ever take anything for granted because you never know what might happen.

So love with all of your heart, sing out loud and dance as if no one is watching!

Take a Breath

Today I need to slow down and take a breath. My world went from peaceful and relaxing to hectic overnight. I am very grateful because I am getting ready for a new job and a couple of wonderful trips but the sudden flurry of activity has me a bit overwhelmed.

I am trying to learn how to pace myself so I can enjoy all the different aspects of my life without going into overdrive. That means taking the time to breathe!

Looking back at this year it is hard to believe all that has happened in a short 8 months. Time really does go by in the blink of an eye. Every day I learn more about myself and this wonderful journey called life.

When I read back over some of the posts I've written this year I am grateful to have had this wonderful outlet of muse and expression. The reflection brings peace as I know that I have moved on from some things and am ready for others.

The Power of Words

As our primary method of communication I don’t know if we give much thought to how powerful words can be. They are the gateway to our inner and outer world and expose so much about who we are.

It can be the words we say or those that go unspoken that define our experience. When we give voice to our heart the truth is revealed.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless – Mother Teresa

Tell a Better Story

If you continue to focus on how unhappy you are in your current situation you will have more of the same. If you can think of the positive aspects of what is happening and tell a better story your experience will change immediately. Suddenly you will feel the rush of joy that may have escaped you before.

It is easy to notice all that is not right in the world but it is imperative that we give our full, heartfelt attention to all that is good so that is what will grow. Tell a better story and the story gets better!

As I began working on my computer this morning a message came up asking if I would allow an update to be installed. I could either accept it or block it.

It occurred to me that is exactly how it is in life. Nothing could be simpler, all I have to do is ask myself one question "Do I want this?” If the answer is yes then I must allow it completely, if not I just cancel and it goes away!

It almost seems too easy to be true but it comes from a place of deep knowing and trusting in each of us. Accept and allow all the beauty and joy that life has to offer and it will be yours.

Cycle of Life

During this past year every possible life experience has touched me - Love, Loss, Marriage, Friendship, Death and Birth.

I realized in June that all things come to pass - it was the 18th anniversary of my mother's passing and the same month that her beautiful great-grandson was born!

That is the precious cycle of life that continues....

I love that life evolves and shifts every single day. Change truly is the only constant. It is exhilarating to me to anticipate what is coming and what new transition will occur. It feels like opening a gift you know you are going to love – no matter what it is!

Taking Stock

It is always good when I am challenged to stop and take stock of my life. What is really important to me and where do I choose to spend my time? Knowing that life happens in each and every moment makes me appreciate when I may be squandering my time.

Right now I am at yet another crossroads and it is time for me to choose if I want to race through this precious experience or slow down and savor the moment...

I know what I will choose - it isn't even close!

Looking Within

This has been a very good week! I was finally able to see what was under the surface of an issue I have been struggling with about my job. It really didn’t become clear to me until I talked it out with a dear friend and co-worker.

As I heard myself blaming others for something that I had either allowed or created it became clear. This was not about them or anything they had done, this was about me. The moment I took responsibility for my own actions the flood gates opened and the truth came pouring out! I knew it was true when I felt it and smiled when I remembered it all works out when I am willing to look within!
