|Peace~ Letting go of my piece of the American Dream and grabbing hold|
of a Peace for the World Dream. Beginning with Inner Peace
|Challenge~ Life is full of challenges, I spent most of mine believing them|
burdens today I know they are gifts that build character!
In the early 90's I was a student at a community college majoring in psych until I dropped out in my 3rd year to go back to work as my husbands income couldn't support us and allow for my sons to be involved in all the sports they loved. I planned on going back but never did.
|Seek~ All my life seeking happiness because I believed what I was told|
today I seek the truth inside of me and the truth is bright and bold!
|Dance~ Today I dance freely, no more names for the steps I take the|
dance is me, my life, my soul!
One thing I notice looking back is that I spent my whole life like most of us do, trying to fit in with the whole while trying to be an independent individual. I also see now that no matter how differently my Mom and I did things we also did the same things, we both made mistakes. Although my children had a different life than I did I still suffered the same hardships with them that my Mother suffered with me. Terrible two's were terrible and their teenage years every bit of challenging.
|Forgive~ I always thought myself a forgiving person until I learned to|
forgive myself. Now, I am learning what a forgiving person really is.
|Thrive~ Loving myself with my thoughts and actions, putting only good|
ingredients into me physically, emotionally and spiritually is my Thrive!
|Create~ Within each and every one of us is the limitless ability to create|
the world we want to live in, a world of love and peace for us all, all that
is needed to create this world is our belief that we can create it!
Truth is there is magical fairy tale endings, always has been. They know that, they just made sure I didn't know, you didn't know. The truth is that happiness is not in those things, it is not in saving a buck or a minute with the conveniences created to kill us slowly so that even in the end they can profit off of us through medical bills and prescription costs.
|Express~ Yourself! Be you, accept me as I be me and accept you.|
We are really each in our own ways anyways, why we fight to be like
another is a mystery, maybe because they taught us not express you see!
We are programmed our whole lives to think one way. If we think outside the box at a young age we are labeled as ADHD or told we have an Authority Complex. If we question anything we are subject to reprimand throughout our entire lives. We ourselves shun others suffering with our judgement and indifference. We have all been mislead by the same small group of people while we point the fingers at each other.
I remember hearing the same words my whole life... "GROW UP, ACT APPROPRIATELY, BE NORMAL, ETC..." Fortunately for me I missed a lot of school growing up, you probably guessed that by my less than perfect grammar and spelling errors. I also had a super hippie Mom who didn't tell me things like that and since I missed so much school I didn't hear it as much from my teachers either. It's funny all these years I hated my Mother for being the free loving hippie she was and today I thank the heavens for her and for my struggles as a child. She and those struggles taught me a lot, they gave me strength and helped me to stay an independent thinker. The really bad parts of my childhood created a deep dark hole in me that told me I was not worthy of love so until now I didn't know what I know today.
|Breath~ Ahhhhhh, now that felt good. Inhale, exhale, repeat. It is all|
going to be okay, in fact it is going to be great. Just Breath!
|Share~ We all have something to offer ourselves and the world, the whole.|
Share your love, your joy, your talents. Share yourself with the world!
|Expand~ Your horizons. To believe we already have it all figured out must|
equate to having it all right? If where you are is not where you want to be
why not try learning some new ideas, new thinking, new ways of living?
Funny thing is that we are all created from the same things. In fact the trees, the birds even the air is created from the same things, atoms, protons, neurons whatever. You get my drift, I am no scientist, but I do know enough to know that we all are made from the same beginning ingredients, even the air we breath to live that flows between us while we think ourselves so separate from each other is created from the same beginning as we are.
|Love~ Yourself the rest will follow trust me!|
We are kind of like these 20 different version of the very same picture I created today. Self answered back today (she does that often now) and said... "because we are so used to seeing with our eyes, touching with our hands, tasting with our tongues, smelling with our noses and hearing with our ears that we forget to listen and feel from our heart!"
Self is one smart cookie these days. If she keeps this up she just may solve some real issues, haha.
|Imagine~ The limitless possibilities of the simple act of imagining!|
|I believe in me and I believe in you!|
Open your heart to the truth inside of you|
that has been there all along. Listen to your inner voice guiding you~
I know this was a long one, I have been in some deep thought today. Yesterday was a huge breakthrough for me that has allowed me to really let go of a lot of my issues and fears. So today I am like a child asking a million and one questions, haha. Thank you for joining me on this yet another great day.
I love you all from a place of knowing that you and I can be individually whole as we are part of each other expressing in our own ways learning our own lessons on our own journeys.
