Party On!

Day 2 of 2018 and here’s what’s come to me and written itself.

Need I remind you (and me for that matter) that we only have today in which to live?  Sometimes I find that time flies by and I realize that I have let days go by without living.  What does that mean exactly?  Well, it probably means different things to each of us, but for me, it means that my days sometimes are filled with mundane routine and there’s not even a small spark of newness to them.

I wonder if when the watch the reel of our lives when we get to the other side, if we will feel like that time was wasted or if we will realize that there was something important about days that feel spark-less?

Will we run through the Rolodex of days gone by that seemingly had no spark and berate ourselves?  Or will be understand that those days had meaning because they were when we were experiencing, accepting and processing life in a quieter way?

I have friends who live life to the fullest all the time.  They are busy, busy, busy – running here and there with their party lights on full tilt.  It amazes me how they can be on so much of the time.  Perhaps it is my chronic fatigue that plagues me that I don’t have that type of energy all the time.  Perhaps it is because I can become introspective and often need to go within to process life experiences so that I can come out with enthusiasm for life again after I’ve been hurt.  How do you live your life?

I love to hear how people deal with life experiences differently.  I love how relationships change.  I am an avid people-watcher and I enjoy learning about how people think and what leads them to their actions.  Connecting with others makes me happy and gives me a feeling of divine purpose.  Most of us by this age have experienced many different life experiences, good and bad.  To connect with someone who understands what you are going through because they have had a similar experience is like finding a golden nugget, especially when you are both open to share freely.

So what’s my point?  Obviously, I don’t know.  This is just another post which has written itself and I allowed the words to flow from my fingers to the keyboard.  If any of this resonates with you, please let me know.

Shine On!

Nothing Can Be Done 2 Days Out of the Year

14thdalailama

 

“There are only two days in the year

that nothing can be done.

One is called Yesterday and the other is called Tomorrow.

Today is the right day to Love, Believe, Do and mostly Live.”

~His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

 

Just a little reminder for us all.  May you enjoy every precious moment, especially this one!

Shine On!

Be Present in the Present

lookback

“If you must look back, do so forgivingly. 

If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. 

However the wisest thing you can do

is be present in the present.  Gratefully.”

~ Maya Angelou

 

I thought this was a great quote to start the week off and I hope it inspires you to live with presence.

Shine On!

Freedom

10665028_Freedom is the oxygen of the soul. Moshe Dayan

You have freedom.  Freedom in thought, feeling and deed.  This is YOUR LIFE!  Sometimes I think we are our own prison guards as I mentioned in yesterday’s post Free-Your-Mind.  You hold the key, but many times, we don’t realize that we are the prisoner and the warden of our own minds.

But now that you read that statement, you can never go back to not knowing how much power you have in your life.  After all, dearest one, This Is Your Life to create what you want with it.

I awoke this morning and looked out of my back window into the yard ~ my morning ritual.  I check our small koi pond to make sure that the waterfall is moving the water and that all is well.  And it hit me this morning how beautiful the world truly is.

So this week as you go about your duties and life, please note the feeling of gratitude for all the small and big gifts in your life, be they people, places or feelings.  Shine your magnificent soul onto everyone you meet.  Relish the connections you make with all that encompasses your life.  You are free to choose, free to dance, free to love and free to think!  Use your freedom for its loving purpose ~ to make a positive loving impact on the world around you!

You hold the power.  You have the freedom.  You are loving and you are loved.

Shine On!
