Courage, Strength, Patience~



Three words of meaning to me on this beautiful day.  As I stood on a kitchen step stool chair using a swimming pool ladder for leverage to make the climb these three words and the two white birds circling me overhead combined with the warm sun shining down on me from a cloudless sky gave me the ability to remove the two rather long screws holding the frame to my awning from my One Love trailer roof on try number Three.  Try number One I dropped the wrench after a few turns, try number Two I lost patience in the repeated turns, switching hands for relief, one on the ladder for balance the other in frustration and pain turning the screws one turn at a time.  On attempt three I chanted these three words and it was then I discovered the birds above me and the word patience slowed the turn of my hand allowing me to work with the screw instead of against it.  Third time is a charm as they say.  I climbed down shaking and crying in triumph as I sat in my chair and began to laugh.  My playlist switched songs and Bob Marley was singing to me "Don't Worry About a Thing" I laughed louder and looked at the half of the frame now laying on the ground and felt proud of my accomplishment.  I am not quite ready for the left side yet, but like Bob said I am not worried I know now I can climb slowly up there and get it down and as time goes on I will get better at making repairs to my trailer, my home and my heart!

Thank you for a beautiful day oh great universe, thank you for the song Bob and thank you for the protection beautiful birds, one step at a time, day by day I will make this journey and no broken awning or whatever else lies ahead will falter me in my purpose.

I am a woman of courage, strength and I am learning patience! I love me today, what a way to celebrate Singles Awareness Day, self love is the best love!
