The Storm

coming stormWhen a storm is approaching … focusing upon the clouds won’t stop or slow the storm. In fact … by focusing on the storm alone you ensure that you are fully enveloped within it. Shift your focus to the light on the other side of the storm and before you know it that storm will have come and gone leaving far less devastation in its path.

Have You Ever?

Today’s post is dedicated to all those who have found themselves in that deep dark hole of depression, loneliness and sorrow. It happens to all of us at some point in time. Life becomes complicated and messy… there are days when we just can’t deal with what life brings us or we just don’t know how to cope. So many reasons that we can find ourselves in this dark place. Life throws at us so much, sometimes it is just too hard for us to take on.

I want everyone who finds themselves in this dark place to know that you are not alone. This happens to us all and the thing I want you to take with you from this post is that … it is never forever… the pain, loneliness, sorrow, depression is temporary and you can overcome it… there will be light again.

Reach out to your friends and family to help you through the difficult times. With much love and understanding I send to you all great big healing {{hugs}} and well wishes.

 

 

 

Have you Ever?

Have you ever found yourself so sad you didn’t want to get out of bed

Crazy thoughts run through your mind, like what if I were dead

You begin to wonder if suddenly I were no longer here

Would anyone notice, would anyone even care

Your world seems so dark and sad

You wonder, why does this feel so bad

It feels like there will never again be light

It’s so hard not to give up and continue to fight

You wonder what’s next and how much can I take

Then you think maybe I’ll close my eyes and never wake

But then you realize this is no way for your life to end

So you pull yourself together and cry to a friend

Letting go of the misery and all the pain

A friend shows you that there will be light once again

You are not alone in this fight

There are others who feel the same, crying in the night

So let tomorrow be the beginning, a fresh start

And let go of what burdens your mind and your heart

Nothing good ever comes from wishing you were dead

So snap out of it and get your ass out of bed!

 

I’d like to say something about the last line above…
I know it’s not as simple or as easy as getting out of bed… but the first step forward IS getting out of bed.

The Candle

There is a candle glowing inside me
Dare to open your eyes and take a peek
Come on, see what you can see
Is it strong or is it weak

 Sometimes I feel it wavering in the night
But still, I am lit from within by its light

Flickering away deep in my soul
This light tho aged, never grows old

Swaying in the breeze
Its flame never does seize

Though at times it seems to douse
The light is always there
Ready to roar like a lion or hide like the mouse

It burns steady, deep inside my soul
I’m sharing it with you now, so you’ll also know

This burning flame starts in my heart
But fills my whole being, my every part

Always there, ready to roar
Filling me with the ability to soar

Now its up to me from here on out
To hold that light in or let it shine, let it shout!

There is a candle inside me, glowing ever so bright
Do you dare take a peek
A quick glance at its light?

There is a candle inside me….
Burning bright every day and every night!

Come on take a look and you will see
That’s my light and I share it with thee.

Many Blessings,

The Light Within

There is a light within us all…  there is also a darkness ….

We have a choice every minute of every day to embrace either side …. or……..

TO FIND THE BALANCE WITHIN.

Take a moment to think about your own inner light,

Do you nurture it?

Do you smolder it?

Do you keep that light kindled?

What do you kindle it with?

Do you feel the warmth of your own light?

Do you allow it to shine?

Do you dowse it’s flame?

How do you feed your light?

Do you feed it?

Are you afraid of it?

Are you afraid of what others will say or think when they see your light?

Do you know it’s color?

Do you feel it’s strength?

Do you know where it lives?

Just a few questions to ponder while you sleep tonight.

Don’t be afraid to shine your light on the world…. the world could use more of us shining our light instead of hiding it away.

Many Blessings,
