Becoming…

Me: Hey God.

God: Hello…..

Me: I’m falling apart. Can you put me back together?

God: I would rather not.

Me: Why?

God: Because you aren’t a puzzle.

Me: What about all of the pieces of my life that are falling down onto the ground?

God: Let them stay there for a while. They fell off for a reason. Take some time and decide if you need any of those pieces back.

Me: You don’t understand! I’m breaking down!

God: No – you don’t understand. You are breaking through. What you are feeling are just growing pains. You are shedding the things and the people in your life that are holding you back. You aren’t falling apart. You are falling into place. Relax. Take some deep breaths and allow those things you don’t need anymore to fall off of you. Quit holding onto the pieces that don’t fit you anymore. Let them fall off. Let them go.

Me: Once I start doing that, what will be left of me?

God: Only the very best pieces of you.

Me: I’m scared of changing.

God: I keep telling you – YOU AREN’T CHANGING!! YOU ARE BECOMING!

Me: Becoming who?

God: Becoming who I created you to be! A person of light and love and charity and hope and courage and joy and mercy and grace and compassion. I made you for more than the shallow pieces you have decided to adorn yourself with that you cling to with such greed and fear. Let those things fall off of you. I love you! Don’t change! … Become! Become! Become who I made you to be. I’m going to keep telling you this until you remember it.

Me: There goes another piece.

God: Yep. Let it be.

Me: So … I’m not broken?

God: Of course Not! – but you are breaking like the dawn. It’s a new day. Become!!!

It takes great courage…

 Be Brave

It takes great courage to sit with uncomfortable feelings

and simply allow yourself to experience them in full rather than running away

and attempting to avoid, deny or numb-out with addictions or other self destructive behavior.

For now, allow yourself to sit in the “not knowing” and trust that an answer will come

at just the right moment.

For that is courage.

And that is faith.

Trauma changes us…

Trauma permanently changes us.
This is the big, scary truth about trauma:

there is no such thing as “getting over it.” The five stages of grief model marks universal stages

in learning to accept loss, but the reality is in fact much bigger:

a major life disruption leaves a new normal in its wake. There is no “back to the old me.”

You are different now, full stop.

This is not a wholly negative thing. Healing from trauma can also mean finding new strength and joy.

The goal of healing is not a papering-over of changes in an effort to preserve or present things as normal.

It is to acknowledge and wear your new life — warts, wisdom, and all — with courage.

Having a soft heart…

Having a

soft heart

in a cruel world

is not

a weakness…

it is

courage.

~author unknown

*

Having a soft heart and acting on it can lead to a lot of teasing and the showing of acts of cruelty by classmates and other “so called friends.”

Most people just act like the rest of the crowd, not wanting to stand out from their group of piers in any way.

It honestly takes a great deal of courage to stand alone especially when you have a soft heart of gold.

Be yourself !

In a world tearing at you to be the same as everyone else, freedom becomes courage to be oneself, a commitment to creative expression and pursuit of one’s own dreams. ~ Brendon Burchard

*

“We must look squarely into our own tired eyes and examine why we waste so much time sniffing at every distraction, why we cower at the thought of revealing our true selves to the world, why we scurry so quickly from conflict, and why we consent to play small.” – Brendon Burchard – Live. Love. Matter.

Courage is…

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. ~ Sir Winston Churchill

*

Some days it takes all the courage you have just to make it through the day.

Depending on the stress level you are experiencing, and a number of other things, life itself takes a lot of courage – so hang on for the ride of your life…

Follow your passion…

You’ve got to follow your passion. You’ve got to figure out what it is you love, who you really are. And have the courage to do that. I believe that the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow your own dreams. ~Oprah Winfrey

Me too…

May you have the courage this week to begin breaking patterns in your life that no longer serve you. Give yourself permission to pause and reflect today. And remember, taking care of yourself doesn’t mean “me first;” it means “me too.” ~ Becoming Unbusy

*

Patterns can be very hard to break, especially if they have been a part of your life for a long time. Don’t be afraid to look at yourself close enough to see if these old patterns are still serving you in your “here and now” best life.

Some patterns are worth keeping and some should be let go if they are not currently your personal best.

Take care of yourself and be sure to include your health needs and comforts in your ongoing thoughts and reflections.

Change can be hard…

Change can be hard. It requires no extra effort to settle for the same old thing. Auto-pilot keeps us locked into past patterns. But transforming your life? That requires courage, commitment, and effort. It’s tempting to stay camped in the zone of That’s-Just-How-It-Is.
But to get to the really good stuff in life, you have to be willing to become an explorer and adventurer.

The serenity prayer…

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. ~Reinhold Niebuhr

*

Reading the serenity prayer always gives me a few things to think about.

If we could just keep these three things in the for front of our minds and follow them completely, we would be a lot less stressed.

Trusting in God takes a lot of pressure off of our every day decisions.

Many times we give something to God, and then take it back to resolve our own way.

And that just doesn’t really work.

It is human nature, however.

So trust in the wisdom to know the difference and practice it until you are able to trust, do what you can, and let the rest go.
