Be kind, be loving, be gentle with yourself – you’ll see things bloom before you know it… My Anchor recording says it best maybe. A picture is worth a thousand words (or in my case, less).
This cottonwood is very old. All cottonwood trees, like any living thing really, needs water to survive. The farmer, or gardener doesn’t pull up a chair and sit there to see the progress of their seeds… Sometimes, the frustration of planting something beautiful takes time. the growth is what is the most amazing process – you wake up one day, and see ‘the bloom’. Keep growing… keep watering… keep believing.
A new day, in a new life. Breaking free of self-imposed chains; external forces that cuffed me somewhere along the way; seeing a new way forward inspired by seemingly impossible obstacles to overcome; Easter. The day we observe The resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This isn’t a post about religion. It’s an acknowledgement that we experience many endings in our lifetimes. And through those endings, emerge new beginnings.
Today, I celebrate my own release. Release from negative live-feed internal nonsense, and build healthy boundaries around those who seek to tear down my efforts.
🥂, may you all find beauty, courage, and strength around your soul. 💞
Today, I realized how fuzzy my mind can really get. Some might even call it, absent-mindedness. This pic was taken today. Can you guess what is really in this image?
That’s how life can be. We are extraordinarily stretched. So too can be our perception. What is our reality, can be someone else’s insanity.
It’s the same with what I think I heard. Just recently I was on the phone chatting away, while waiting for my car to get fixed. The person on the other end was watching over my fur-kids. I heard: ‘they’re a problem.’ What was really said: ‘I’m having fun.’ How did I get that so mixed up?
Well, I don’t like being human, but there it is. I’m only human. Next time you find yourself berating yourself: DON’T. 🙏🏼
As 2020 wraps up, and the slush of the maddening phases we’re overcoming, including government, Covid-19 pandemic, and our very own issues of survival come to a head, the door is about to open. I welcome it. All of it. Because that door will contain challenges, un-foreseen consequences of what we have done, or not done collectively.
Personally? Well, my door has been closed. Healing has been on the menu. Healing on physical levels, emotional, and mental. As I get ready to open the door, I invite those whom have done the same, to enter: like-minded, supportive, non-judgmental, and spiritually attuned, welcome!
Still working on it? I take my hat off to you, and hope you will continue. Don’t give up. Keep up the good work, and know you’re on the right track. Peace within, starts with you. Peace without, starts with those you know who are willing to grow with you.
Sending out blessings to all, and I’ll catch you next time…
