Embracing change

If your life starts to dismantle,
just breathe and let it happen.
There is a season for all things.
When the season comes to an end,
it has fulfilled it's purpose.
Now it's time for something new!
Don't hold unto yesterday!
Let faith carry you into tomorrow.

Sitting on gold


A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. "Spare some change?" mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. "I have nothing to give you," said the stranger. Then he asked: "What's that you are sitting on?" "Nothing," replied the beggar. "Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember." "Ever looked inside?" asked the stranger. "No," said the beggar. "What's the point? There's nothing in there." "Have a look inside," insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold.

The true gifts in life are when...

 We have made peace with ourselves and others.

We let go of control and learn to just trust.

We face our pain rather than cover it up.

We stop looking for external validation.

We feel a deep sense of belonging.

Inside happiness

Picture yourself as a woman
who awakens
to feeling blissfully happy
 
“Happiness is when what you think,
what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

A blissful life



 
Imagine seeing the beauty in everything;
  in yourself, others, your surroundings. 
 
Every day we are blessed with so much.
The magnificent colors in the sunset, the salty air,
nature playfully dancing around us.

Deep appreciation comes from our heart.
If we have a protective barrier around it,
we forfeit the joy of existence.

The taste of freedom


Let go of fear

fear of change

fear of what tomorrow will bring

fear of being powerless


Release the past

forgive those who have hurt you

forgive yourself

for your own mistakes


Have faith

trust whatever comes your way

will not be more than

you can handle

 
Be the best you can

share your heart with others

be gentle, kind,

patient and thoughtful


It is in dying to our old ways

that we come ashore
to taste the joy of new freedom

Special moments

 
These moments can be as simple as…

chasing rainbows,

wishing on the brightest star,
 
taking risks,
 
standing on the edge,
 
learning to fly.

The simple things


 
Our lives are full of simple pleasures

that are too often overlooked.

Take a moment to slow down

and show appreciation for

all the little things in your life

that bring you happiness…
