My wish for all of you! ENJOY!
Valentine’s Day is coming up and so I wanted to take a moment to share with you something I have done for friends in previous years to spread the love A few years ago I got the idea to give a whole years worth of love on Valentine’s Day …. So I thought how on Earth will I pull that off!
So it dawned on me … I started collecting motivational and inspirational quotes along with a few funny and odd bits of wisdom, jokes or whatever it was I liked…
I collected 365 sayings … I printed off 20 sets of these 365 sayings and began the process of cutting them all up in strips to place them inside a decorative box … with a tag that says … A Year of Warm Hugs and Wishes
I found the boxes at the Dollar Tree for $1 each …. Not a ton of money invested.. just loads of time!
If you would like a copy of the quotes and phrases I’ve collected.. message me and I’ll be happy to share.
What can I say that has not been said before when it comes to love. It is that one thing we are all in search of and yet so few feel like they have found true love.
Bells, whistles, lightning and thunder are suppose to be heard when that love walks into your life… but is this true?
YES!!! Yes it is very true.
Your entire being knows when that other half of your soul stands before you. Words nor actions will not be needed for the souls communicate on a level that few understand.
Magical is another word used often to describe the feeling of true love. I have to agree but also I should also say that one need not expect to have that “magical” feeling every moment of every day. The magic is always there but in the chores of living day to day other things blur the magic and while it is there.. it may be unseen or felt less than other moments at times. This is ok.. this is how it should be.. for the magic is never gone… it’s just not always front and center.
Be sure and let those you love know it every day. If you want a magical love life then you have to play a part in making sure the magic is front and center.. don’t allow life’s day to day challenges blur the magic that lives within your bond.
It’s the small things that for me bring that magic back to the surface… like looking over at my husband and as he turns his focus and looks back at me and that smile of his takes form… A magic stirs inside me and I bubble over with how very much I love him. Late night cuddles and morning kisses .. sigh… Preparing meals together… the love and care that goes into every action. These are just a few of the things that normally may go without notice but for me these are the moments I look forward to.
Quote from Eat, Pray, Love “Accept that everyone you meet in life is a teacher”.
I was thinking about this statement and for a moment and began to reflect back on various people that have come and gone in my life and what I might have learned from each of them. Even those who came and left in a moment there was something to be learned. It doesn’t matter the length of time someone is in your life, they all offer something to be learned. Here are a few examples of my own:
These are just a few examples of what we can learn from others.. the list is never-ending. Today I ask that you look at the world you live in and the people in it, a little bit differently. Ask yourself what lessons can be learned and how that person has influenced your life today.
This is what I have done all my life. In fact, I strive on proving others wrong when it comes to what I can and can’t do. It fuels me in a way that no obstacle is too big.. nothing shall get in my way .. I become this super hero of whatever it is I’m about to take on and so I leap tall buildings and scale the mountains before me to show the evil doubter that “Yes indeed, I CAN!“.
It is a great feeling to transform a can’t into a DONE!
You are suddenly filled with a sense of pride and well being. At that moment you are truly happy inside and out. It is euphoric and feels oh so good to be alive. Not only did you show others that you COULD .. you showed yourself that you could do it and that is far more important and rewarding.
Today’s message: Don’t let fear and doubt fill your mind.. Go at life with a CAN DO attitude and watch as the doors to possibilities continue to open right before you.
There is a story inside me you may or may not know
I’ll try to explain it with a bit of rhyming flow.
This story runs deep, straight to the core
It begs for you to know me just a little bit more.
From my childhood to this adult like life
The girl, the friend, the lover, the mother and the wife.
I’ve been through the jungle and survived many a war
I’ve been lost but also found what I was looking for.
I’ve been held captive and I’ve known what it’s like to soar
I’ve found the keys and unlocked some doors.
Some right, some wrong
But through it all I have become ever so strong.
At times all I wanted to do was flee
But that wasn’t really me.
I’ve learned to conquer many of my fears
It has taken lots of practice and many years.
But here I am today as I stand
Offering you a welcoming hand.
Come into my world and see what I see
You’ll get a little glimpse of what it’s like to be me.
The many hats that I wear
The way it feels when people give you that stare.
The love that I give and the friends that I gain
And lets not forget how much fun it is when we dance in the rain!
From my hand to yours
I welcome you to know me just a little bit more.
Be careful not to cling to any emotion… allow yourself to experience emotion without fear of that emotion and without clinging to that emotion.
For instance: When one is happy, you want to hold on to that feeling for as long as you can. You push that moment into being and in doing so you also create a fear of loss with that emotion. This blocks energy from flowing freely through you and all times we need that energy flowing.
Allow happy moments to come and go at their own natural pace. The same is said for all other emotions. When you allow fear to take over you allow road blocks in your own life-spring of energy.
It is hard to let go of that control. We want so badly to keep happiness in our lives, but think about this for a moment. If you are clinging to one particular happy moment … you are blocking other emotions from flowing through you. The same again is said for other emotions…. Anger, hatred, sadness, etc. Live in this moment .. right here .. right now.
What is done is done.. holding on to past emotions is pointless and helps no one.
Some call it our purpose.. some use the word destiny… and others a calling.
There is this vibration inside each of us that when we are on our correct path, when we are using the gifts we are born with, when we follow our instincts and are being our true selves.. that is when this vibration sings. When the vibration isn’t singing we feel lost and we search for ways to make it sing. We may not understand where this desire comes from but it is there and it pulls us and calls to us to be our truest self.
There is a feeling so pure and it hums like the buzzing of bees in the hive. This feeling resonates deep within our core and when we are spot on, doing what we do best.. what we are meant to be doing .. this feeling grows so intensely that the light within us shines so brightly it seems to light the whole world… or at least our own worlds.
Knowing your calling is there with you … inside you at all times, this is the first step in understanding. Pay more attention to your feelings and when you feel your best.
What are you doing when you feel your best?
What have you created, said or done?
Where are you?
Are you at home, at work, playing?
Life passes by us so quickly .. we often overlook our own selves.. we forget to get in touch with our own inner being. Quite often we also push our own needs to the side to take care of others. Take some time today for yourself. Take the time to understand your own feelings and take mental notes of when you feel your best and then do more of that!
