Sadness clings like dust particles, and makes us think there is no other way to feel than sad.
This is your chance to be a seed of happiness, a spark of hope, a star that someone can look to and follow.
Keep away from sadness and let your light shine.
Good morning today is all about you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are, so when the days come that are filled with frustration and unexpected failure, remember to believe in yourself and how you want your life to be, because the challenges and changes will only help you find the spirit and strength to keep you on your path. Lesson: Keep believing in yourself..
When we allow material things to be more important than Spiritual things we lose a lot of very important ways in life. Many fear dying and are so concerned about what would they do if someone stole all their possessions. Did we not come into this world naked? Can we take all our riches with us when we pass?
Is success what really makes a man or woman or is it something more from the heart? Can we actually buy real love? The twisted ways of thinking come from greedy people. A person who works hard should be paid more than one who works less. But that is not the case here. It is all backwards. This is what man has brought forth because of the attitude that being a certain religion or family tree
entitles them to it.
What they really forget is that: "We all are from the same family."
Yep that's true
Yesterday may have left you warn out and exhausted from the stress and chaos. But today we are given the opportunity to start a new day leaving yesterday behind. Its the choices we are gifted with when our eyes first open. And it's here, in the first moments that we wake up and still realize we have a chance to live...
This whole week was stressful. I hate deadlines at work. But I do try to leave yesterday garbage where it belongs.
Good morning... As I open my eyes to the morning sun I leave you this message. This message is to remind you that you are beautiful, talented and one of a kind. Don't be like everyone else, because they are not you. Being different is ok, being different is unique, being different is beautiful and being different is who you were meant to be. Remember, No one can stop you from being you. So stand with your shoulders high and stand with pride in who you are, because you are exactly who you were meant to be
Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds you in a hug and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.
Today was a day of choices, it’s where feeling and emotions play a role in everything we do, it’s like the moment I remember walking the river’s edge. The water came to a still spot and as I gaze at the stillness of the river, I picked up several flat rocks earlier in my walk that I carried in my pocket. As I stood in the perfect spot, here is where I could sit and think in the calmness of the sun and sit on this newly fallen tree like a bench, carved to my comfort and placed here just for me. The shimmer and reflection of the morning sun glows where the waters looked clear as glass and the grass soft as silk and the sand was dry and warm to the touch of my feet as I took off my shoes.
A soft breath I breathe and my thoughts run free. In this moment I think of many things; it was here in this time gazing over the river; where the water calmed my spirit. Then I remembered I had the stones in my pocket. I took the first rock and threw it into the water; it skipped and glided across the top of the waves of the waters, it made a small splash, and as fast as I had thrown it, it now was gone; But there’s something happening; the water has changed, there’s a change in the waves; where once still and calm, peaceful; is now filled with hundreds of ripples circling moving throughout the water’s edge. The ripples spread from the center where the rock disappeared and I see the wave growing and there is no way of telling where the end is going to be, but one thing for sure, it’s now a constant flow of ringlets. In that moment I was reminded of a lesson.
In troubled times the waters were calm and in a flash a stone was thrown and it started the waters flowing, and those ripples circling throughout the top of the water, those little waves are moving where the moment of stillness was interrupted. I had just disturbed the mighty river just by throwing a stone into the water, just like the stone thrown into life and in our own lives, what we throw into our daily lives. Shall the stone make a ripple, and are we left with the option to choose the true choices. Those choices are left with consequences like the stone changing the ripples of the waters. Some changes aren’t necessary making a ripple but what we really needed to see; is that we disturbed our own calmness; that calmness before the stone was thrown; in its calmness it didn’t ask for my distraction. I forget in that moment I had thrown the stone that started a ripple. I remembered I had a choice; so think before reacting and starting chaos, because a small stone will change your environment and change your calmness…
There is a stream behind the barn where I live that some mornings I love to go back there and walk, watch the sun rise and listen to nature. Nature talks to us if we clear our heads enough to listen. The stream back there is what inspired me to write this. I love skipping peddles on the top of it and it got me thinking...
I used to live where we had a lot of woods behind it, and a creek.
It was very peaceful to sit by the bank and watch & listen to the water, and the life within it swimming by. Sadly i don't live in a place like that now. I miss those peaceful days. lol
