I apologize to my regular following for the long lapse since my last blog post. I have been very ill and am only feeling better today. I have been working on patience with myself in every aspect of my life. I began by making notes whenever I observed the possibility I might miss an opportunity to acknowledge something positive in my day. It began slowly… I first discovered that I missed beauty in my surroundings…a smooth road surface…a spectacular cloud shape… incredible colors in the sunset…and even the mundane things like the clarity that a brand new toner creates, or the comfortable softness of the sheets on my new mattress.
It probably sounds pretty silly. I am simply trying to teach myself daily lessons in appreciation. I give myself permission to enjoy the ride, both literally and figuratively. If it means I end up being tardy, so be it.
Every day I strive to learn how to praise my higher power more adoringly and sincerely –to give thanks for all my blessings and my burdens. There’s so much to be thankful for. I used to live in the world of regrets. I checked out of there and left no forwarding address.
There’s so much I want to do now. Instead of dwelling on what I can’t accomplish or afford, I am focusing on what I have now and can do next.
Perhaps I cannot sing anymore, but I can still dance!!! Make a joyful noise; right now; in this moment!!!
Don’t let the steps hold you back, let them propel you through time like a rocket. After all, we are only here for an instant.
Evolve yourself through any creative outlet you find, as long as it doesn’t harm another human being or species on this planet.
Never mind a gratitude LIST, cop a gratitude Attitude, take a deep breath and ask “What does my HP want me to do now?”
Be still and silent and close your eyes, and the answer will well up within you.
At the end of the day when you lay your head down on the pillow, reflect on the choices you made today, and try to fall asleep with a smile on your face.
Ever stare at a key and wonder if it has a secret power to unlock something more than a door? Something ethereal? Another dimension perhaps? I am allowing my mind to wander through a garden of ideas.
It’s like a high without drugs –giving it all up to God. Pray for others’ needs before your own. It’s SUCH A BIGGER RUSH TO SEE OTHERS’ PRAYERS GETTING ANSWERED. Be a gypsy. Like Stevie Nicks said: “and it all comes down to you.”
Peace, love, blessings and gratitude for you all….
