Be more kind and loving, spend lots more time with family and doing things I love to do. We take for granted so many things in this life. I try to keep this perspective often, because we never know when it is our time to leave this earth. So try to live each day to the fullest and enjoy the precious moments that we do have.
When you pause first before reacting, the outcome is most likely going to be different. When you take a breath and let God lead you, your more adapt to handle the situation more positively.
When I pay attention to others needs and feelings. I feel I can love more openly when I am more receptive to other peoples feelings. I need to work on this and be more aware of others and more loving and caring.
Slowing down and gaining a clear head helps to distinguish what matters most in life. Taking time to focus on the things that matter most will help clarify what things matter most in each of our lives.
Things that are done for me. Friendships that I have. Actually we should take nothing for granted while we are here on this earth. Everything God has given us or put in our path we should appreciate and be grateful for. Everything He has laid in front of us has a purpose and a reason.
When I feel powerless I tend to get more frustrated so here lately I have tried to take a step back clear my thoughts a bit and try to be open to the other choices that are available. I don’t always do this but the past few times I have I have realized that they are different choices I can make and different ways to handle things.
Be a better listener and open to others thoughts and feelings helps us to grow. God puts people in our paths for a reason, don’t discount any daily encounters you have with other people. Take it as an opportunity to learn something from the circumstance.
A small change I could make is to be more tolerant with adults. I work with children and God has blessed me to have abundance of patience with them, but when it comes to adults I expect to much I guess. I could make more of a difference in the lives of adults and children if I could be more composure and understanding towards others.
In today’s world it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and allow the sounds of the world to drown out the whisper our souls. My intention every day is to stay tuned into my heart and listen to the whispers of my soul but like so many of you I still struggle with creating the space in my life to slow down. I feel as if I do slow down but apparently I am not listening to the whispers. Thank you Patricia for your prayers and you message.
I have learned that even when I try to open up to my spouse I continuously get shut down. He has to control the conversation and can’t let me speak my mind at all. If I do participate it is minimal and dismissed. I value his opinion and heed to his advice, I just wish I could express myself more. He wants me to express gratitude for the things he does for me, but I find this very difficult to do. I need so much more emotionally from him it is hard to show gratitude for the other things ...

I felt like privately expressing gratitude or doing for others was enough. I have recently learned that I need to verbally express my gratitude to the person and to the universe. I do not want or expect anything from other people, therefore I have just given to others without wanting anything in return. I feel like it should just be a give and take. I am not one who verbally expresses gratitude. However, I guess I should start verbalizing my gratitude towards others, hopefully this will uplif...

Qualities I look for in a friend is someone I can be open and honest with and will be that way towards me. Trust, loyalty, and genuine are very important to me. My circle is small only a people have these traits and qualities.
My Aunt, she has been gone for 17 years, but she is with me daily. I have strongly felt her presence anytime I need guidance or strength. We bonded from my teenage years through early adulthood. She was someone I could openly discuss things with and she would be loving and honest. I am thankful for the time we had together while she was hear on earth, and thankful for the bond we still carry on today.
I need to learn more patience with life itself. All this uneasiness in the world and country is so stressful. I want to enjoy and live life to the fullest. The older you get the more precious time is.
. Even when life pushes you back, you can tap the hidden resources of your human spirit. Trust your gut feeling and inner knowing, the wisdom is inside you and when honoring it, you will not go wrong. The proper use of knowing comes when you flow with your authentic feelings, embracing all the experiences you encounter in life as learning lessons rather than hardships.
My reflection on this is a literal storm. Hurricane Katrina took our every possession my family had. It has since left me though with more understanding that people and relationships are so much more important than possessions. It put a new perspective on the important things in life, and made me realize to appreciate the relationships and have a greater appreciation for what I do have.
My present moment beauty was the trees in my backyard. It helped me tremendously the past two days. It has brought me peace and harmony during this stressful time in my life. Slowing down a little bit always helps heal your soul from stressors in your life.
Right now I am not feeling that anyone is dancing to the beat of my drum. Which I am realizing is ok sometimes you have to dance to your on beat and it may be all alone. You have to find like-minded people to dance to the beat of your drum. Sometimes your energy is different from everyone else and you don’t have anyone dancing to the beat of your drum.
I feel that as you get older your experiences change. As you age you appreciate more, you are more aware, and more thankful for the experiences in your life. You are more aware of what you want from life and the importance of every day experiences. Also as you age you slow down a bit and you understand the importance of each and every experiences in your daily life.
My dad will be held in my heart today. He had fall recently and I have been spending all my free time helping him out. I will be traveling back home today. He is hopefully on the road to recovery, but he will be in my heart daily until I am able to return to him.
