You Are

I just want to remind you of how strong and powerful you are. I know that you don’t always feel as though you are-but you definitely are.

You are a wonderful expression of God-unique and unrepeatable in every way. Someone loves you more than you will ever realize; you make all the difference for many.

You are not your mistakes or your past, unless you continue to make those same mistakes, and live in the past.

You are amazing, and gifted in your own way.

Every matter of concern has already been worked out in your favor. You just have to believe and surrender to a power and presence that is greater than us all.

Namaskar!

The Nudge to Grow

A child goes to school, and finds guidance there. A child is surrounded in love, and finds nourishment there.

And then graduation day comes, as does moving day. You can’t stay where you are; no one can. Life simply won’t allow it.

Accept the nudge to grow; to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Grow we must, grow we must! Because remaining invisibly the same is no longer an option for me.

Or you.

Life is a Special Occasion

Be gentle with yourself today. Be compassionate and take care of yourself today. Make that appointment (cancel that appointment); book that trip, write a letter to express your dormant thoughts and desires-(you don’t have to send or share it. Ever.)

Listen to music that makes you feel good (extra credit if you get up and dance it out for 3 minutes.) Put on the lipstick; the special occasion earrings, jeans, shirt, dress, suit, shoes, jacket, or tie. You woke up today…this IS the special occasion.

It is only when we take care of ourselves FIRST, that we can show any semblance of humanity, compassion, and decency to others.

Have the best day today.

And enjoy it.

Finding Joy in Grief

Forgive me because my human senses have no comprehension of the peace you’ve found. The reality…the majesty; the “heaven” that is now yours, feels like sadness and loss to me. Forgive me for my selfishness in needing you to be around “just in case” and “just because”. The joy you have found makes this request oddly disrespectful and inhumane. You and God understand and love me anyway. He knows like you, I simply miss you and this is how I deal with it sometimes. The lesson to be learned is when you love someone, this love must be absolute and unconditional; including accepting another’s decision to be with our Father.
