Love and Light

I wish you…Love & Light.

I have missed you dear friends.  I apologize for writing so sporadically these past few weeks and for not having visited you much either.  A friend signed a note to me recently with the above “I wish you Love and Light” and I just thought I would pass it along.  For to me, it is a sentiment close to my heart and one that I wish for all of us.

Our life journeys are not always easy and they don’t always go as planned.  To let go of expectations, of desires and of wants is a difficult lesson to learn and one I am now learning.  To let go and enjoy the wonder of the present moment is what I remind myself through blogging and one that I hope always shines through to you.

Each day, we have a choice.  Each moment, we can choose happiness, gratitude and love.  Those are the important parts of life I think.  The rest is all fluff, necessary fluff as we need to have shelter, food and clothing, but fluff nonetheless.  For our legacy here is love.  How we made others feel by being our real selves and how we made a difference in someone else’s life.  It’s being present with ourselves and with others.  Finding time to connect, to love, to be grateful and to fill the world with our shining love.

Perhaps I am a dreamer.  I’ve been known to wear rose-colored glasses and not see reality as such.  Certainly, I’ve learned quite a few lessons in my life from my experiences with enduring breast cancer, grief and many other things that I don’t wish to recall at this time.  But I’ve always been able to find the sunny side of the journey.

It’s a choice to find the sunshine, the moon and the stars.  It’s a choice to be happy and to go on when life throws us curve balls that we just didn’t want to see coming.  It’s a time of growth when we have to change course.  But I am here to tell you that you can do it.  Sometimes we need to step outside ourselves to find our footing again on this path of life.  It’s rocky at times as many of you already know.  Smooth sailing is not always good as it doesn’t give us a chance to spread our wings and learn to fly.

“When you come to the edge of all that you know,

you must believe one of two things:

either there will be ground to stand on,

or you will be given wings to fly.”

– O.R. Melling, The Summer King

May you remember the above quote this week as you journey into the month of October.  May love and light surround you every step of the way.

Shine On!

Hope Needed

73868995_Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible. ~ Helen Keller

I love this quote from Helen Keller and I just felt like sharing it with you on this stormy Monday morning.  Well, the storm has yet to officially start, but it’s looming.  Dark clouds are swirling in the sky, my migraine along with the ugly nausea that sometimes accompanies it has settled inside of me.  So I just know it’s going to be a doozy of a day considering that I was up half of the night unable to sleep with my monkey brain swirling with all sorts of ideas, conversations etc.  Does this happen to you?  It’s like when I meditate and I am waiting for Deepak to finish minding the time and ring the bell!  Click here!

But I digress….Hope.  It’s that intangible concept, similar to faith.  It’s in that quiet of the mind that comes when your monkey brain has been muzzled.  Do you know what I mean?  Have you seen it?  Experienced it?  Can you find my HOPE?  Have you found your own?

So today I thought that if we all pulled together and connected, that we could use our communal powers of humanity and make a difference.  We could spread HOPE ~ one baby step at a time!  So are you with me?

Please take a moment and as my gravatar says,

SEND OUT LOVE and SEND OUT HOPE

when you finish reading my post.

Perhaps like a ripple on the water, HOPE will spread it’s wings far and wide to all those on the planet who need a bit of hope.  Show me how far our HOPE reaches by just commenting on where you are today on this big, beautiful, hope-filled planet!

I’ll start ~ I’m a Jersey Gal, as in New Jersey, USA.  What about you?

Shine On!
