Purple Heels

Purple heels

There once was a lady wearing Purple heels.

She loved wearing her Purple heels with the spiked frills.

She did not care if wearing the Purple heels made her fall.

She wore the heels because they made her feel tall.

She really loved how the Purple heels made her feel.

She loved wearing those Purple heels for thrills.

Welcome New Year!

Renewal

Happy New Year.gif

5,4, 3, 2, 1…

Many will reflect, celebrate, make resolutions, and have expectations for the new year. Many will declare a “better year” than before…

Welcome New Year, We welcome you!

How many times each year, declaration “this is the year” dismisses previous years.

Instead of looking for the magic in a “new year”, exercise how you are looking at your current year.

After all, a new year does not guarantee a better life. But, a better year is guaranteed by how you see your life.

Intentionally avoid saying today is not a good day, consider saying today is a good day with the exception of what happened today.

When facing the loss of a job, loved one, finances, etc., remind yourself “this too shall pass,” what I am facing today will be over.

Remember, nothing last forever. Keep living, the best and worst will happen, but like in all things, they will eventually pass.

Just think, if you are reading this post, you made it to the end of  a year! You are survivor! You are more than a conqueror! (Roman 8:37)  Even when  you didn’t see how or believe in conquering.

Go ahead, think of the worst that has happened, do you feel the same way you felt when it happened? Is the pain as intense now? More than likely not. The reason why, “old things pass away and all things become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17) for those believing for a better hope of promise.

So, Welcome the new year! But like the first day of any year, welcome each day and each moment as though it’s the first!

Renewing your minds daily. Remember, in all things whatever the challenge, “this too shall pass!”

Press Forward, No Time to Retreat

Retreat

keep-moving-forward-martin-luther-king-jr-quote

One of the infamous quotes from many of Dr. Martin

Luther King hold truth,  “If you can’t fly then run, If you can’t run

then walk, If you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have

to keep moving forward.”

 

If you are living there is no time for stagnation. It’s easy

to retreat and allow life to pass you by, but if you do nothing,

you will receive nothing. Life is an active force. There is energy

all around us. It’s true, whether we see it or not, the laws of

attraction are in effect. We are affected by our actions.

 

One of the mantras I often use, “if you want change, then

you change.” If you want things to happen, then make

them happen! Do not retreat before time.  There is a time and

purpose for all things. Stay mindful, timing is important!

Know when to rest or keep it moving!

Sweet Aromatic Therapy to Stench

Aromatic

woman-relaxing-by-candles

Aromatic therapy to stench…

Plans for the evening are

relaxation and meditation…

After a long day of work,

the mind is on mute-

only engulfed in sweet fragrances…

Downtime on the chaise, I escape…

But this evening turns out a reminder …

because the mind begins to wander

and find its way to the homeless man I met the other day…

I’ve seen homeless before, and

the heartstrings are always pulled-

from tunes of concerned to sorrow-

sorrow to a feeling of helplessness-

Homelessness had a new facelift…

The outcome turned out to look like me and you…

Homelessness today is not easily recognized at times…

it’s often hidden behind a smile…

Look into the faces of the ladies, men,

and children at church, co-workers, family members,

or friends you’re find it…

When homelessness wandered into my path

the other day,

I looked into the eyes of fear and desperation.

I found  it on the face of the 76 years old man.

He was put out the home of a family member…

While some hearts are hardened

to the plight of homelessness

and some have been scammed by some homeless-

I never gave a whole lot of thought

to sowing seeds of kindness here and there…

One reason is because I believe in

the law of sowing and reaping…

What you sow, you will reap…

Seeds of kindness are in abundance…

those things are sure to come back to you

if they’re sown straight from the heart-

they’re on good grounds to flourish…

So, as I sink further into my thoughts

attempting to relax in an aromatic calm,

I must pause for a moment

to imagine the aroma of stench

some may face to escape to their rest

in a place they consider home…

As we celebrate this season of Thanksgiving and reflection, think of others besides you and your family. Think of those in need. Sow seeds of kindness.
