To be strong…

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel pain. In reality, the strongest people are the ones who feel it, understand it, and accept it. ~

Be the person…

Be the person who breaks the cycle.
If you were judged, choose understanding. If you were rejected, choose acceptance. If you were shamed, choose compassion. Be the person you needed when you were hurting, not the person who hurt you. Vow to be better than what broke you – to heal instead of becoming bitter so you can act from your heart, not your pain. ~StrongMind

*

It is always a good idea to improve yourself. Breaking old patterns of abuse and uncaring shows a real desire for healthy living.

Fighting back against hate means finding more love and replacing hateful things with loving things.

The easier you can forgive the sooner you can be free of the painful past.

That doesn’t mean that you will forget the things that were done, but it does mean that you choose to take a different path. One of a higher vibration and mindful effort.

Choose LOVE instead of other options and change the old patterns of hate and unacceptance to those of understanding and unconditional acceptance.

Know yourself…


Come to know the power and

authority of your graces with

the same precision with which

you have come to know your

brokenness and pain.

~Carolyn Myss

*

So many people feel wounded

and broken from past relationships

and less than loving encounters.

They know the details from beginning to end. 

Backwards and forward.

The same old story remembered over and over again.

One painful memory after another.

~

But what about your good qualities and accomplishments?

What about your super powers and graces?

Are you even aware of what a wonderful person you have become?

All the good you do for others every day, 

and how you are such a blessing to everyone around you.

~

You are all that and more.

Full of LOVE and zest for life.

~

 Be sure that you come to know yourself

for the power and authority that you are

with the same precision

that you know your

wounded parts.

The future…

The future…

 

Let go

of the pain

and disappointments

of the past.

Embrace and focus on all

you can be, do or have in the future.

~Billy Cox

 

 

*

 

It doesn’t do any good

to hold on to any part of the past

that is disappointing or painful.

 

Sometimes it feels like

justice or justification

to go over things a few times,

and share them with a few friends,

but really it just keeps the past

painful things alive in your present focus.

 

Embrace and focus

on your present

and all you can do or be.

 

Plan for the future

and work towards

doing your best

in every way.

Be that ONE…

                 That One

Be that one.  That one who forgives when

deep offense has been committed.  That one

who loves when no one else does.  That one

who gives kindness to those who are mean.

Be that one who looks past the insult,

instead seeing the pain that motivated it.

That one who shines light upon those who

sit in utter darkness.  Because the impact of

being that one runs far and wide.  It brings

healing to the wounded, joy to the sad, and

hope to those in despair.  Be that ONE.

~Sheri Echert

A beautiful place…

A beautiful place…

 

 

Be soft.  Do not let the

world make you hard.

Do not let the pain

make you hate.  Do not

let the bitterness

steal your sweetness.

Take pride that even

though the rest of the

world may disagree,

you still believe it to

be a beautiful place.

~author unknown

 

*

 

 

Everyone has their own perspective.

 

Be as positive and full of love as you can be

and let those who hate live their own life.

 

They will suffer their own disapproval and consequences

while you just go on smiling.

 

Stay true to yourself and find as much love as you can

in everything.

 

No matter what any one else thinks.

 

This is still a beautiful world...

Don’t stay there…

Don’t stay there…

Everyone goes through hell, but not everyone stays there by Bryant McGill

Everyone goes through hell, but not everyone stays there. Stop tormenting yourself by reliving the pain over and over. Good people go through terrible things, but wise people know when and how to let it go. We all know that wisdom does not come easy, it often comes from painful experience. Many of us are very unwise in how we handle our pain. Like an animal that struggles in a steel trap, we worsen our wounds the way we struggle, deny, and fight against what simply, is. When we refuse to learn the wisdom of acceptance, we become our own tormentors. When we refuse to let go we suffer, yet we cannot let go of something until it has taught us what we need to learn. Letting go is a process of recognition, confrontation, acceptance, and healing. Letting go simply means not suffering any more than absolutely necessary, but just enough to expand and strengthen ourselves. Some suffering is needed to deepen our compassion, to grow, and to learn. Letting go means you have learned enough, and now have compassion for yourself. Letting go means not touching that sore spot until it is infected, and instead letting it heal. Letting go means carrying a permanent scar, but not a permanent wound. Letting go means you may have walked through hell, but came out the other side ready to make your life a heaven. Letting go means you refuse to be a victim forever, by letting one moment define the rest of your life. Letting go means you accept change, and you accept that your pain is not permanent. Letting go means you accept that you cannot take away the past, but you insist that the past cannot take away your future. Letting go means you are ready to move forward and live. Letting go means you are no longer afraid. It was always fear that held you prisoner; letting go means you are finally free.

{Pray for the wisdom to know how and when to let go.}

Have faith…

Have faith…

Through spiritual maturity you will see new ways to avoid unnecessary suffering; wiser ways to endure unavoidable hardships with grace, and opportunities to turn your pain into lessons of service and healing for others. Your hard journey has had a great purpose! Your pain was always a part of a plan to open your heart to love. Have faith. A miracle is happening in your life; the miracle of pain is transforming you to your highest self.
— Bryant McGill

Don’t give up…

Don’t give up…


Dear Human

You can’t give up.

You can’t give up on LOVE because

others are hateful.  You can’t give up on

believing in one another because

you’ve been let down.  You can’t give up

on hope because pain came your way.

You can’t give up on kindness because

some people are cruel.  You can’t give up

on peace because war surrounds you.

You can’t give up on dreams because

they don’t always come true.  Life isn’t

about everything being in order.  Life

isn’t about bliss.  Life is about

learning to live, love, hope, and

believe in the midst of perfect

imperfection.  Life is messy,

complicated, confusing and beautiful

all at the same time.  Life is the single

best gift you have ever been given.

You can’t give up.

~Sheri S Bessi

It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the day dream of having a “perfect life.”

Always hoping for MORE.

More love, more peace.

Always wanting more money, and more friends.

A bigger house and a different car to drive.

Deeper feeling relationships.  The kind they show on television all the time.

Those perfect sit com type of life styles.

Those never ending get away’s to tropical islands, and buying brand new cars.

Those romantic romance novels that every one reads because they don’t like their own life all that much.

Let’s admit – that isn’t real life.

Real life can contain a little bit of all of those things, but there are also a lot of not so glamorous things mixed in also.

Things like pulling weeds to keep your garden tidy.

Doing the dishes and sweeping the floor to keep your house clean.

Making the bed every day.

These are not as glamorous at all.

But they are a part of what makes life worth living.

They are parts of life that we can all be grateful for.

Imagine not having a house with a floor to sweep.

Not even having a bed to make.

That really changes they way you look at things,

and maybe reminds us to be grateful for what we have instead of

spending our lives wishing for someone else’s  life.

 

Making peace with what we have as we look for even more.

Making the best of the life we have right now, as we live it.

Enjoying our life right now with all of the complicated imperfections of the moment.

Not the same…

Not the same…

” I am not the same

person I was 5 years ago.

Truthfully, I am not the

same as yesterday.

The change happens so

gradually that we hardly

notice. But love, pain and

knowledge constantly

change us. That is the

way it has always been.

Just be aware of it and

let it change you into

something beautiful.”

– JmStorm

It’s amazing to look back on old family photos and see how much everyone has changed. Right there before your eyes are the growth and changes you can’t deny.

Some things you may like and some you might not like as much. Things like noticing yourself age may not be as pleasing as watching your children growing up.

But what can you do about it?  Aging happens.  Life goes on.

So you’d better be aware of what is going on enough to make your changes feel beautiful no matter what they look like.  The body changes but your mind can become more empowered every day.

Wisdom grows and so does patience and understanding.

If appearance is really that important to you, you can always illicit plastic surgery or body enhancement.  Places are making a fortune keeping the baby boomers wrinkle free and sag minimized right now.

I recently heard that fake boobs never sag.  Now that’s important to many people.  Of coarse that doesn’t make them necessarily cancer free or free from other body malfunctions, but if looks are everything to you then you should make sure your body is up to your highest standards.

Lots of people get face and eye lifts.  More and more people are getting tummy tucks and roll reductions every day.

So if that is what it takes to make your world a happy one, then you should go for it.

Just be careful and be sure that what you are doing will definitely make a positive change rather that a negative one.

You could end up sore for a long time and bleeding with a giant debt for the rest of your life.

Now how happy would that make you?

Maybe it would be better to take some self esteem classes to help you deal with the effects of aging and find some friends that are willing and able to love you no mater what you look like.

Change happens, make sure you are changing into something beautiful.
