It is, what it is

29 Aug

My last post, as I reread it, is fairly negative. I have sat with the upcoming changes and realized, once again, the higher powers that be are looking out to keep me in truth and on my path.

I used to get upset when things were not turning into what I had planned. It could be age or part of maturity, or both, but now when events do not happen as I envisioned they “should” I wait for understanding as I accept the turn of events. I look for meaning in everything and find it.

At the moment my life is brimming with change! How exciting! I have protected myself from taking on the energy of my coworkers to maintain my positive outlook on what is occurring. How much change?

• new job
• new office space
• looking for a new house
• possible career change for my spouse
• my oldest starting high school
• my middle daughter starting horseback riding and giving up piano

Incredible when I list everything.

And so as we enter the last month of summer and welcome fall, the season of change, I’m going to accept life as it happens. Truly it is what it is.

Unexpected turn

19 Aug

I knew changes were coming. There had been talk since April and even conversations which lead me to believe my voice mattered. The end result is not what I hoped for.

Or is it?

I wanted a change. A new position to feel challenged again. I wanted to grow in a new direction. I got that. I wanted to move closer to my career goal and I am.

What I did not want was to move physically to a new space. I like where I am and who I am with. It saddens me to think about moving.

What bothers me most is the reason for the move. To be micro managed. One person wants control and she worked her manipulative skills to end up with exactly what she wants. I detest that.

I am trying to know what my lesson is in this time of change. I embrace change, however this time part of it is tearing at me.

I need to ask and listen for the answer to feel settled.

Kindness – Pass it on!

17 Aug

You can choose to live every day as though it’s your last or live every day as though it’s your first with all the wonder, love and light of a new born babe.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.”

~ Og Mandino

I have a favour to ask of you today. It’s just a small one, but I hope you will oblige me.

Today I would ask that you take a little time from your day to gift three small kindnesses:

1) A smile to someone who needs one.

2) A kind word or some small thoughtful action for another.

3) A small act of kindness for yourself.

Can you imagine how our world might look if more of us practiced a little kindness for self and others?

To be a Lightworker, we need simply to spread light in the world. What better…

inspired to say the least

I love watching people speak about their passion. It’s uplifting, inspiring and I get caught up in their energy to live my passion too. 

Last night I watched a webinar of Caroline Myss. She is one of my favourite authors so I sat smiling and nodding my head throughout the entire 90 minutes. 

The information she shared has caused me to rethink, reevaluate and change my thought pattern. She recommends that we live a detached life. Not detached from feeling or caring, but detached from labeling something good or bad. All is well because we are constantly learning the life lessons we need. 

Tonight I walked my Boxer who is normally very reactive to other dogs, and I tried very hard to detach from my feelings of how she would freak out when we walked a past a particular dog, who always charges at the fence. You know what?  As silly as the exercise seemed when I headed out the door, it worked! We walked past said dog’s backyard and other than a sniff, Ruby kept walking by without lunging at the fence.  

Okay so this was a fairly simple exersice, but a good one to start with.

Baby steps…that’s all.

Words are powerful and can be used to heal or harm. I believe in using my powers for good. Compassion, celebration of Gaia and our shared humanity, random kindness, the wonder of the human spirit, the poetry of empathy, all inspire me daily.
