Asking for Help is a GOOD Thing!
THE WORLD isn’t the same as it was 10, 20, or 30 years ago. I was born in 1968 so I clearly remember being a child in the ’70s, a teen in the ’80’s, an adult and mother in the ’90s, and watched the ball drop for the year 2000. This is a better world today, I think. I see people are more real, more open, more human. (more…)
I know things have been really hard for a lot of people this year. These first six months of 2014 felt more like an extension of the worst months of 2013. I didn’t escape the punishment, trust me. So much of my life needed correcting that the universe felt it necessary to stack lessons on me all at once. And I worked with each element each time. And I cried a lot. And I prayed. (more…)
The little boys are off to school tomorrow and I’m so sorry I woke them early this morning! I’m over a week behind schedule and I’ll be catching up as quickly as I can. Thank you for your patience while I manage many things and try to get to each of you as quickly as I can. As you can imagine, my days are packed and now a little more loaded than usual. But it’s all good, I say! Tomorrow I hope to have another day. And while I’m a bit tired I can say that I do this for you because I love you all, very much. I care about you. I worry with you when you worry and I suffer when you do. But life is not all a suffering or at least, it’s not meant to be. Anything I write is meant to be something to think about, not necessarily to be taken as the only advice or path possible. But, while I take the time to write for you, I’m thinking about you and wondering, “What is the best advice I have at this time?” I’m also thinking about what I’d do if I were you. Life is a series of moments and nothing more. What we should look forward to is each new day and another chance to start over, right wrongs, help ourselves get better, live better, align ourselves with God and Spirit, and help others, too. That’s what I try to do for you! There is much good in the world and that means where there is good there is also bad. What are we to do? Fear the bad things and bad times? Or, are we better off working through the challenges we often face and looking forward to better times? I guess I’d have to say both are correct: we are to consider the bad while not dwelling on it, in a nutshell, just protecting ourselves from it. Live in the moment, be mindful of the present, and create the future you want for yourself. No one can do that for you, I can’t teach you how to live your life but I can help you understand, certainly, what could be better options for you!
