I was thinking today, taking a bit of time to reflect. I looked over all the bad days I’ve had and all of my best days. I found something common in each of them. Soooooo … I tell you what I found! TREASURE!
Today Spirit urges me to tell you all a story… All morning I have wandered through my memory banks to find the right story for you but just could not figure out which story Spirit wanted me to tell. So, I start this video with the thought of a story and allowed it to unfold all on it’s own. Enjoy!
In life we will get knocked off our path many times… the important thing is that we get up, dust ourselves off and get back on that road. Spirit knocks us off the path when we are going in the wrong direction… it is important to recognize that so that when we get back on that road we don’t keep going the wrong way!!
Life is quite often complicated and hard. There are magical moments and moments of great hardship. The world will knock you down over and over again. Just make sure you keep getting back up.
Life lessons are hard, they create so much chaos in your life, you don’t know if you are coming or going and searching for that next step can feel like a huge burden. All the “what if” questions flood your mind, creating worry and fear. That’s the whole point.. Your world gets turned upside down when it’s time for big change. We are all creatures of habit to some extent. Unless someone throws the puzzle pieces up in the air, we will continue searching for the right piece to go in that empty space in front of us. Sometimes you are simply working the wrong puzzle.
Although change can throw you off balance, there is a great feeling that comes with finding your balance again. Remember as a child when you use to walk across an old fallen tree… each step taken with care, not to lose your balance…. when you would begin to teeter from one side to the other it was both frightening and exciting all at the same time and then that moment when you regained your balance…. remember that feeling? THAT was a great feeling, you felt safe, you felt okay and that moment of fear, when you nearly fell off … is gone. You still have to keep walking forward to get off that old tree. Just remember that the fall is still possible and that tree isn’t going anywhere… get back up and try it again.
Watch as a baby first begins to to learn how to crawl. They push themselves up by their arms and one knee at a time they raise up… and then the inevitable slip of a knee happens and they find themselves back on their tummy. A baby doesn’t just give up at that moment… something inside them says “I can do this” and they try again and again until they master crawling. It begins again when they try to walk for the first time. And again as they learn to speak.. to read .. etc.
We were born knowing “WE CAN” … it isn’t within us that idea of giving up… that is something we tell ourselves when we are afraid to succeed.
>In this life we live … mistakes will be made … we will fall.. we will get back up again and again… There will be highs .. there will be lows … ups and downs and all arounds…..
Don’t let your mistakes define you … let them be the building blocks of your growth.
We need to find that place within ourselves to let go and forgive past mistakes.. so that we are able to move forward. Dwelling over the past does not change the past or make any easier to let go.
Through the more trying times we will find our strengths… figure out what we don’t want …. and learn more and more about our truest self.
This life right here … right now.. is all that we have .. so we must live right here .. right now..
Allow yourself to experience every part of this life.. the good and the bad.. the calm and the chaos… the laughter and the tears ..
Remember your daily blessings and walk your path with love and honor..
And…. Don’t forget to be YOU.
