This too shall pass.
I received an email from a friend with some keen observations about me. It was, at first, a difficult message to read and receive. And then I realized he was extending love to me by being honest and forthright about some behavior (once I was receptive to it) I needed to change. I took it to heart and knew why I wasn’t being my true self. I was imbibing too much. I have stopped doing that and I read his email ever day to remind me of that and to embrace my true loving and compassionate self....

My own biological mother’’s story. She transitioned very young in life at 45 years of age from cancer leaving four children and a husband in the immediate family and oh, so many more. What I treasure about her is that while on this earth she shared her amazing musical talent and inspired others to recognize their own. She had an abiding faith in humanity and God and was fun-living as well. I miss her to this day. I was seven. I can still hear her playing piano and singing.
Dawn. I love the silence juxtaposed against the illuminating sky.
Focused on being loving to everyone who crosses my path and grateful to share a part of this journey with them no matter how extended or brief. Lovingly grateful for the connectedness.
Being of good health, I would sing. I would dance. I would swim through cool spring waters. I would love abundantly.
Memories of a loving marital relationship. I stay as much in the present moment, but I have to admit I miss intimacy and I wonder now that my husband has been gone two years, if I will ever have a fulfilling loving relationship again. Life is too short to live in the past.
A shift in perspective to one of gratitude will help me divert my attention from my pain from oral surgery.
To live more fully, openly, joyfully and lovingly in the moment.
I wish it to be so. Have we really met each other half way?
That I am a hopeless romantic.
My once whisper is very audibly shouting to move to the community I love. My spiritual community is waiting to welcome my arrival as well as new friends yet to be met.
What matters most to me is maintaining non-adversarial relations. Even when conflict brews, to find how to forgive and love and let go.
Living affirmatively loving and extending that to those currently in my life and beyond.
It took me quite awhile to move from grief to gratitude. I wish I was more practical really. I am actually quite a romantic. My practice is to put out my relational intentions to the Universe. I feel strongly that my message has been received and so I remain positive. I get a good laugh occasionally that I love men too much not to have something wonderful ensue — one soulmate will be more than sufficient. Blessings to you.
Arleen. Yes so true. I am in the dental office as I write this.
Kevin: So wisely stated and expressed. Thank you for your insightful messsge.
Dusty Su: WOW, you never cease to amaze me. It’s right on, influenced rightly so by colorful and poetic language and so incredibly creative. Keep up the mantra. Now I am thinking about mine! Ha!!
