Words of Wisdom 02/13/2018

Good New Day Beautiful Spirits!

This week’s Words of Wisdom is a quote submitted to me and it sure was right on time!

“Live your life without buts!” ~Olivia Smalls

Ms. Smalls’ quote reminds us that we are more than capable of creating and maintaining a life we truly enjoy.

A meaningful life by our own standards if we simply…

Stop making excuses.

Stop hesitating because of this or that.

Stop being afraid of what happens if this time doesn’t work out.

Stop awaiting support and validation from others.

Stop believing we may not be worthy of the life we want.

Re-write your script! Image result for action

Let’s find out what happens when we…

Stop trying and simply take action…DO!

Be open to changing direction midway if necessary; quitting is NOT an option!

Leave past experiences behind us; this time IS different; we’ve grown so much since then.

Be our very own cheerleader!

Trust ourselves to get it done.

We are worthy of beautiful life experiences. Contrary to what “they” say, life is NOT meant to be difficult.

 

As always, sending you great Love, Peace & Blessings…

It’s Just Me…

Here’s my thing…

I am who I am; I will always be who I am.

If you are intimidated by my presence, deal with it because that my Dear One, is YOUR problem NOT mine! Accept me as I am because I am NOT changing for you. Being true to myself if the highest form of honor; perhaps you should try it too.

Never again will I dim my light.

Never again will I attempt to lessen my intelligence.

Never again will keep quiet so you can feel better about yourself.

I am NOT here to make you feel good (or bad) about who you are, that my Dear is YOUR responsibility; perhaps you should take it seriously.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your run; it’s over now!

Be mindful of how you approach me, I am kind, compassionate and helpful but if your intentions are less than honorable I promise to be your fiercest teacher.

As always, with a smile in my heart,

Love, Peace & Blessings…

Only YOU Can Save Yourself

Dearest Beautiful Spirits,

After spending yesterday in bed, searching for a reason to keep trying, I’ve awakened today with reasonS to keep trying.

Here’s the thing, I had to acknowledge that there is something within me that is destructive. It fights all of the good in me, as if it’s trying to prevent its inevitable death once I get the hang of thriving as my authentic self. This destructive (for lack of a better term) part of me is a strong son-of-a-b&tch, fortunately the rest of me is even more powerful.

You see it’s so much easier to blame something outside of yourself when your life doesn’t seem to go as want it to. At this time in my life, there is no one or nothing to blame, yet I still feel as though I am not where I should be.

I’ve even tried to blame it on being an introvert, unfortunately everywhere I look there is a successful introvert thriving because of who they are. I honestly believe as an idealist, dreamer, INFP I often get stuck in the creation phase of things and lose interest shortly thereafter because…monotony of day-to-day business is not appealing to me. Funny thing is, I am definitely at the point in my life where working for someone else, helping to build their dreams is simply NOT AN OPTION! I’ve managed other people’s businesses, it’s past time for me to put my big girl panties on and manage my own business. HUuuuuuuumph! *chuckles*

Bottom line is, I’ve been afraid of following through with my dreams/ideas because lack of support has subliminally taught me I am unworthy of fulfilling my dreams/ideas. Growing up, no one ever saw the splendor in my dreams/ideas and I wasn’t encouraged to pursue them. If the ones who love you don’t seem to believe in you, how can you expect anyone else will?

As the years went by, the twinkle in my eyes along with my fearlessness slowly evaporated and I began waiting for someone to save me (i.e. from the bully in school, the adults who thought it was okay to violate my trust, an abusive spouse…) yet no one ever came to save me.

 

YOU ARE WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU MAY KNOW AT THIS MOMENT; DON’T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF. ITS TIME TO BE YOUR OWN HERO…

be-your-own-hero

Being saved was a deep longing I needed fulfilled but much to my chagrin, it never happened until the Universe told me clearly and with certainty, “You and only you have the power to save yourself. It’s time for you to do so with all that you are; all that I’ve created you to be. You are never alone, I am always here unconditionally loving, protecting and guiding you.”

After such a spiritual awakening, there is no way I could continue waiting for anyone to save me so I made a conscious effort to begin saving myself. I am not perfect nor always happy but my personal power is something that I rely on to keep moving forward instead of allowing myself to give up.

Let me just tell you, my entire being…mind, body, spirit, soul and heart gang up on me if I try to give up; seriously sore throat, chest pains, back pains, headaches, spiritual disconnection etc. The part of me that is not destructive has become so much stronger than the part trying it’s best to shut me down therefore, my only choice is to keep moving forward.

Wishing You Love, Peace & Courage during your personal journey…

Return to the Wild

The moment it becomes clear the Mustang, rebellious spirit, infinite strength and independence has been quietly led all of this time.

Led by fears, beliefs and expectations of others.

The Mustang’s fire dimmed to almost nothing until now.

Trapped in a cage she’s had the key to free herself from all along.

The moment the Mustang wipes away cobwebs, giving thanks for clarity and strength gifted to her by the Universe…

The moment the heaviness that was suffocating the Mustang has finally dissipated and she knows that she is finally and totally free…

Wild Mustang

The moment the Mustang stands, legs stronger than ever; heart beating so strong she can here it reverberate throughout her entire being

The moment the Mustang declares that no one will ever lead her again!

The moment the Mustang reclaims herself completely!

The moment the Mustang has longed for…to feel alive and purposeful

This moment you are feeling proud and relieved for the Mustang, realizing…the Mustang is YOU!

“I am truly, hopelessly addicted to feeling so deeply, words cannot describe…”  ~SereneNSassySoul

Back or Just Getting Here?

My hiatus has ended. Yesterday I posted a poem filled with words that have entered my mind during the past few weeks; longest, shortest poem ever! LoL

Someone asked, “Does this mean you’re back?” My response was simply, “I’ve learned that I was never really here before now.” I’ve been getting to know me; the me I tightly tucked away for years. The vibrant, creative, fearless, loving, determined, whole me. “I’m more of a behind the scenes type of person” I used to say; one of the biggest lies I’ve ever told myself. There have been many other lies as well… I just want a quiet ordinary life; love is optional not necessary; there were others but the list is too extensive. Since I’m done with “that person”, there’s no need to recap is there?

Living is about the moments not the days; there are no perfect days but there are perfect moments. Leave the less than good moments behind; allow the beautiful moments carry you forward.

As always wishing you Love, Peace & Blessings…
