Love is the endless ocean of God.
Associated with sadness, yet you are far from that for me.
You are the ocean, the sky, the creeks and rivers and lakes.
You are a clean pool to dive into and release what keeps us tense.
You bring thoughts of peace and content.
When people ask me what my favorite color is, I always tell them it is you.
The prayer of St. Francis and then quieting my mind to listen to what God wants me to do.
May we all have peace of mind and good health.
I hit a rock bottom a few years ago, and my mom was there for me in ways she did not have to be. Where I expected judgment, she gave me love. We already had a great relationship, but that experience strengthened our bond. I’m so grateful for her <3
Fearful customers (I work at Whole Foods, and all of the grocery business is crazy right now). On-edge coworkers also need my patience. I always try to set an example for them, though, that everything is good. That we are all going to be fine no matter what the situation is. I carry that with me thru this current state of coronavirus.
My soulmate/partner/bestfriend. After years in an abusive marriage, I never thought I’d be so blessed to share love like this with another.
My parents. They have been my rock thru hard times, and we share many joys. They are also my best friends, especially my mom 🙂
My siblings. We are all so quirky and different from each other, and we have a great connection!
My coworkers. I’m lucky to work with so many cool, fun, interesting, and hard working people!
Love would see thru the masks we wear and accept us all, holding us gently in a warm embrace, asking us to remember that we are love, too.
By remembering that it is not in my control.
Yes, it has. By living in gratitude, I find that I am better able to deal with the fears when they pop up. I’ve conditioned my mind so that when fears and worries arise, I look for something to be grateful for instead of investing myself in worry and all the “what if’s” like I used to.
Water of all kinds, but especially the ocean and connecting salty rivers and creeks. How the tide ebbs and flows. How the waves pull back and forth. How the wind effects the waves. Swimming, floating, and surfing in the waters, totally immersing myself into their energy. The waters by me are cold right now, but as I type all of this, I absolutely cannot wait to get back out there!
the fear of not being good enough. perfectionism.
I have let go of so much stuff over the past few years, but those two things still creep in on me. I’m glad I recognize them. I am definitely working on them!
My light grows brighter. My connection with God grows stronger. It fills me with joy to be of service to others in whatever way I can. As it was already said, it is in giving that we receive, and I’m grateful to be reaping the benefits of that truth.
My faith in God.
Getting to experience things I never thought I’d be able to experience – sharing an honest and genuine love with someone and buying a home for the first time. It’s all so exciting, scary and wonderful!
By listening with love and compassion. By not letting my ego insert itself where it doesn’t belong.
do it daily. write it down. smile at the now. dream big and know that God has your back!
