Tips for a Great Day!

February 24, 2017

These are a few of my favorite things anyone has said to me in my entire life. I have tried to base my actions and my days on these things.

Someone once told me I have the faint cracklings of a healer. I loved that. I would love to heal everything – people, scenarios, reasons for war and discontent, communication between people. I cannot of course – but I can keep trying.

My daughter told me once that I channel what I believe…I channel God. Now I know I have not always, for sure, been a true reflection, but it surely inspired me.

I was told that my presence at that particular time, to that particular person was that of an angel. I have been told that several times, and I loved that to aspire to…Wasn’t that lovely? Of course I know I am not – but I fly in my dreams – and I know I could in this life, if I could just remember how!

My son told me he was sorry for all the times he had been mean to me. I was shocked. I never thought a thing of it because we all have our “growth” spurts, and love is unconditional and forever. He said he guessed he was because all through his life I had always been there – in the good times, and in the very bad times. It touched my heart though love never runs away because of fear or distress.

More than once people have said, “I like your smile. It made me smile.” Cool. Less wrinkles to smile, more fun.

I have had a full life thus far, and though most of it is behind me, I look forward to seeing what is next. I want me to be my best ever. I have learned from a thousand mistakes and poor choices, and from that which was not even my fault.

I prayed for guidance last night and woke up to write. I allow myself an hour to pray, read and write upon waking. It is a delicious time.

I could tell you so many terrible things I remember in my lifetime, but the thing about being human is that if we focus on the GOOD – look upward and move onward – and LEARN, we will blossom like a flower. I’d rather be a flower than a prickly cactus. Smiling is so much easier.

Do something for someone today (something little or big) and don’t tell a soul! It will be tempting to talk about it, but it is so much more exhilarating to have the deed between you and whomever you believe as a creator. The Creator watches.

If you don’t believe in a higher power, then silently think about the deed and be proud of your choice, amidst all the tension and delusion that is happening around the world. It will bring a smile to your face sometime-probably more than once. It’s good to share love.

And if you think of the horrible days and comments made to you, then STOP IT. That was then. You can’t take anything back, so pass the good forward.

This is now. On your mark….get set….go!

 

 

Don’t Worry – Be Happy

December 6, 2016

I am so passionate about so many subjects, I barely know where to begin. Will anything I say matter? Will anything anyone does matter? Or will the power of the media sway all thinking so there is always racial division and concern about a presidency that has yet to begin.

Did your mama ever tell you “Stop worrying! Ninety nine percent of what you worry about will never come to fruition.” I have found that to be true over my lifetime! Such a small percentage, of EVEN LIFE-CHANGING events have had the power over me (and my choices in responding,) to take away a free and happy life.

Of course we all find mountains to climb, and sometimes we choose different paths of travel, but with the same goals in mind, do we not always have the choice to work together as best we can until we can work out a way to join paths and unite once again. I believe it is part of what makes us human – the willingness to PEACEFULLY be able to “make things work.”

Life is a teacher to unwilling students.

God forbid I would discourage anyone – that is not what I was born for – but honestly, I spent so much of my life “worrying” about so many things, I find it amazing that I have done as much as I have done in my life! In the state of “worry”, there is (as Churchill said) “Nothing to fear but fear itself!

Don’t get lost in your own rhetoric… if you do you will loose the value of each moment we have = and the moments are all we have! I guarantee that. I had ten years or more stolen from me in a moment. I am grateful I had lived my life thus far, as I chose. Now it is doing the best that I can in a limited world I had not known.

Please do not forget now. Nothing has happened yet. Likely-and I wish I were 20 – NOTHING will…We still must move onward and upward.
