Thought of The Day

THIS TOO SHALL PASS:   My Aunt would say this to me whenever a challenge arose in her life. She knew it was only temporary. She gave up the struggle and trusted in a Higher Power and awaited the gift.  She knew how to talk to a person and be with them in a crisis or when they were upset. She had a gentleness about her. I learned from her the most important thing to do for a loved one in crisis is to simply love them. 

Inspiration for Today

In helping others, we shall help  ourselves, 

for whatever good we give out completes the

circle and comes back to us.

(Flora Edwards) 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s NOT my job to make YOU

like me!!

Passengers on this journey

we glide by  barely edging

past  each  other’s  comfort zone…

do not suffocate me with your 

useless breathiness of mundane words

I admire your attempt to shine

Your success is yours alone.

Leave me to my silence and quiet resolve, 

my strength is fortified by this wall of invisibility.

Do not drop a tear from your eye

there is no sadness glistening in the

depths of being alone.

Peace fills the space where I breathe 

each corner crowded with the haughty reflection

of the ego’s demise.

Friend you are a piece of the puzzle I 

barely recognize as my own.

We are separate yet strangely connected

rounded and pointed, colorful and drab.

Sounds speak from your mouth, I hear only

the mumbling of despair, do not continue

I cannot uphold your Truth, I believe in me

and send you on your way.

Our paths do not intertwine we slip through

the veil of pretentious greetings.

I bow to compassion yet stand tall in acceptance

of moments never bonded.

I surrender releasing judgment of any unbridled thought

that has caused you harm.

It is not my job to make you like me!

When I started this blog it began as an experiment and a dare by a cherished friend. The pulse of my life is writing. Childhood was expressed in soulful lines of questioning and early victim hood believing Mom and Dad do not have a clue to who I am. Teenage years were solemn prose written from a young woman who lacked self-confidence and was shrouded in silence and shyness. Adult years emerged with a blooming of exploration like a bud revealing each petal in delighted surprise. Awareness awakened the middle-aged woman with insight and words flowed into recognition and self-expression. I write this blog for my “Self” the words are messages I need to hear and I am inviting you to eavesdrop on these conversations. 

I deeply appreciate those who follow my blog and those who take a peek at it once and awhile. My goal had never been to see how many people I could get to follow or comment but to ease along life with a gentle flow and gift others and myself with revelations that persistently knock at my soul’s door. In GRATITUDE I say Thanks!!!!

Thought of the Day

The human mind may be likened to an electric battery: It may be positive or negative. Self-confidence is the quality with which the mind is recharged and made positive.

(Self-confidence formula #1) I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life; therefore I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.) Taken from the book by Napoleon Hill Think and Grow Rich Every Day 365 days of Success

Thought of the Day

Words to contemplate: I have found lately for myself that a clearing and cleansing of old worn out beliefs would be beneficial to the overall emotional well being of my soul. 

I deep down know these Truths of myself but bringing them forth and announcing them to the Universal vibration ignites a powerful vibration within me and and it expands my consciousness. So when I am driving to work or going to bed I start with powerful statements that express who I am. I have felt a shift in myself and those around me since I have been practicing this. It is refreshing to hear my voice claiming my greatness instead of criticism that tears at me with harmful intent. 

Statements such as: I AM creative, I AM valuable, I AM appreciated, I Am successful, I AM loving, I AM compassionate, I AM financially abundant. All affirm who I AM. And so it is!

If you are ever in doubt of what you need to hear take a breath and open up a book and listen with your soul to the words that present themselves to you. Emotion triggered a response in me today leaving my body constricted and fearful. Disappointment coursed itself through my veins leaving me listless and fatigued. “What is the meaning of this?” A question asked without benefit of an answer. Later when the shadow passed I picked up a book and read the message for the day. On a sigh the breath left in recognition. I will share the words that revealed an insight.

The vibrations of fear pass from one mind to another just as quickly as the sound of a human voice passes from the broadcasting station to the receiving set of a radio–and by the self same medium.  Mental telepathy is a reality. Thoughts pass from one mind to another, voluntarily, whether or not this fact is recognized by either the person relating the thoughts or the persons who pick up those thoughts.

Memories burn deep within me

as teardrops escape the corners of my eyes-

The saltiness is familiar; it is an invitation

to revisit and remember.

Overcome with a lethargic trance my ego weakens

subjecting itself to rejected thoughts that

uprooted themselves in diligent persistence.

A sardonic twist of fate reconnects the present

with glances of the past disguised as a desperate

interloper befriending my fears.

I begin to ache with the taste of yesterday’s teardrops.

My conscious thought is captured in turmoil for

a moment turned into an eternity of confusion.

I lean into possibility knowing this is temporary insanity

begging for admittance.

Awareness sweeps over me like a cool breeze and

My breath escapes into release.

Grace fills the void softening the shell of resistance

evaporating the tears dissolving the memories into

glistening reminders of what has previously existed.

I relax and peace fills with me an exquisite

sense of Self as I return home inwardly embracing

myself with Love.
