I shared a quote on Facebook today, along with some additional thoughts of my own.
Here was the quote:
“Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enJOY and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way.” Anonymous
My addition to it:
And if you want to take it to the next level, try to EnJOY it even when it is not so called “Good” … we can never get lost time back so let’s squeeze as much JOY out of EVERY moment that we can even when it is challenging. When it seems hard to do, look for things to be grateful for, think of who you Love and who Loves you, Smile at Beautiful memories, send Inspiration and Hope to others, listen to Happy music, take pictures of the sky, notice how blue the sky is, Love up your pet, drink a glass of water all while appreciating that you have clean water to drink, …… the list is endless. Use your internal power and focus wisely.
Can you add to this list? Why not get out a pen and paper or grab your phone and use your Note feature to jot down some more things. I promise you if you do, you will feel so good and that sounds pretty darn good right about now, doesn’t it? 🙂
I am very excited to be able to offer this workbook for you at this time.
With many of us staying at home, it’s the perfect time to delve into your inner desires and to better understand your soul’s callings.
There is no catch here. This is my GIFT to you! And full disclosure. When you download this workbook you will be added to my email list if you are not already on it. But please know you are absolutely free to unsubscribe if this is not something you wish to do. It is only ever my intent to reach only the people who want to receive my messages and inspirations.
I hope you are all enJOYing your time staying safe and that you are in fact making beautiful memories and dreaming of glorious new horizons coming our way. 🙂
“The human capacity for burden is like bamboo- far more flexible than you’d ever believe at first glance.” ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper
Let us always remember that we are stronger than we realize. Challenging times can also challenge us to rethink, to regroup and to adapt to what is currently happening and to the changes that we are experiencing.
We need to be like bamboo and be flexible in our thinking and in our resilience.
I am at the cottage or camp as we call it here in Northern Canada. Something happened to me twice today so I know that I was meant to share the message.
I ran across, in two different locations, something that resonated with me deeply
. 1) in my sock drawer and 2) in my camp journal, was this poem written by my Honey, Don in August of 2012. The words speak volumes to me at this time and I hope you enJOY them too!
Here it is:
When you are in spirit, you are in union with God.You become one with the forest as you sit on that log. Your mind transcends what you believe to be true. You see (っ◔◡◔)っonly ♥ Love ♥ in whatever you do. The sky becomes bluer and the stars more bright…❈❈❈ As you inhale nature in the middle of the night. All people become one as you Serve and you Trust…. There is no them because they all become US.
In the middle of the night, a few days ago, we heard our daughter talking. She sleepwalks often, so we checked on her and she was standing on the bed in the middle of the bed pointing at the ceiling. She might have even been touching the ceiling. And she said “I see numbers on the ceiling 1 1 (pause) 11.”
She was asleep but her voice was very loud and she was touching the numbers 1, 1, .. 1, 1…
Now why I found this to be interesting is because it is said that 11:11 is a number that means “𝐀 𝐆𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐲” to another dimension. Many people see this number often 11:11. I do believe at this critical time in history, we are indeed entering a new dimension.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, we are uniting together world wide like we have never done before. The earth is healing. We are reevaluating life as we know it. We are changing our entire view of everything and I truly believe we will emerge from this in a better place. I see it as a regrouping and an opening to a new way of being… a portal like 11:11 is referred to.
I also think that we are all opening our connection to a deeper dimension and to messages that have deep meaning for us, especially at this time. Like the one I posted about two days ago. If you have not read that one yet, here is the link:
I will close for now and I do hope you are all enJOYing this time of transition. There are so many people that I have spoken to or messaged recently that share with me that they are enjoying this time so much. Many are awakening passions and interests that have been laying dormant or put on the back burner. And they realize now that this is the time for them to let their creativity and their desires out to be actualized. So many people are getting clear on what is important to them and that is an awesome thing.
Take care everyone. Bye for now and there is much ♥ LOVE ♥ sent your way today!
I am at the cottage and I went to my special box where I keep the ‘camp journal’ to make an entry.
We arrived here yesterday and are still trying to heat the place up. There is a lot of snow and this is the earliest we have ever come out here but this is a different time. Usually we don’t come out until sometime in May.
I knew that my camp journal entry today would be historic. Things are very different in the world right now.
♥ Back to the box. ♥ When I opened the box I found this, and it was like a special message from Anne Frank to us, right now when we need it most. I am tearing up writing this. Here was what I saw….
WOW. It literally took my breath away and I knew I had to share it with all of you.
I am so grateful for these words from Anne Frank. And if you know Anne Frank’s story you will know why these words are even more profound. If you do not, please take the time to Google her.
I hope you are grateful for these words from Anne, and that they bring you comfort and peace and this time.
“I searched among her crayons for a color that represented autumn and pulled out an orange-toned crayon, never used. It read “Bittersweet,” and I wondered why that particular name. Autumn was my favorite time of year… I was always ready for the change. I guess some people didn’t see it that way. Some people wanted to cling to summer… I loved both seasons, but I thought no one would ever call spring bittersweet, even though it was just another change, another new cycle, an end to one season and a beginning for another in an endless, never-ending spiral.” ― Janet Rebhan,
I ran across this quote today that reminded me of what we are going through in the world right now. It truly is Bittersweet. I know a lot of people are in fear right now but there is so much goodness happening too!
We are getting clearer on who we are and what is important. We are stepping up to the plate of humanity and serving others. We are learning to look through the eyes of Love for the entire world. We are all collectively thinking of new horizons that we will be so grateful for.
Just as the changes of the seasons throughout the year and the seasons of our life can be bittersweet, so is this time we are in.
I encourage you to look for the Sweet. As I typed this my daughter popped in to say hi to me and I looked at her sweet face and I knew what it all meant.
Look for the sweetness. It is always there if you look.
I also this today in a Facebook Post that my friend Meredith Ann Deasley shared. Meredith is a Certified Life Coach, Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Spiritual Vitality Expert!
This is what I saw and it Inspired me!
She shared her notes for the day and this is a snippet from them. I love it!
It says in regard to how she sees herself:
“The way I taught myself to turn every negative into a positive from a young age. (and people think I’m naive! hee hee) Meredith Ann Deasley
Well I have to say I loved that. I am seeing so much positive in all that is happening and I continue to do so. Of course I have compassion and empathy for others and I understand some people’s anxiety is running high, but I do think we can choose to see Goodness and Sweetness and I hope that you look for and enJOY the Sweetness too. It is even sweeter at times like this because we appreciate it more. 🙂
Things are certainly changing quickly, and life as we know it is regrouping right before our very eyes, and it is happening on a global scale.
It may sound strange to you, but the more that this is happening, the more I am getting feelings of well-being and knowing. I do feel there is a lot of good that will come out of these challenging times.
During this time of uncertainty, I think we are all starting to appreciate and see our lives differently. The word I have come up with is ♥ Cherish ♥ . We are starting to ♥ Cherish ♥our lives in a whole new way.
I just got off the phone with someone near and dear to me, and she shared with me that while out walking yesterday, she looked up at the blue sky and just started to cry in appreciation of how beautiful the world really is. Her tears were not tears inspired by fear but rather from a place of appreciation and realization.
It seems that everything is becoming more cherished and that we are recognizing the gift in many things that we have taken for granted. For example, being able to access convenience products like toilet paper, being able to buy nourishing foods, being able to freely go where we want, to be able to travel anywhere in the world, being able to attend schooling, and many more. Sometimes we have to drag ourselves to the gym or to go for a walk and I am sure the day will soon come when we will be so grateful that we are once again able to go the gym without worry. I bet will run to get to the gym. 🙂
We will get through this and that day will come.
I for one, am cherishing the most simple things and appreciating them in a whole new way.
I really, really feel that there is a shift happening and what we are experiencing is all a part of regrouping or shifting of the planet to a place, that quite frankly, needs a good regrouping. A regrouping of the way that we are too dependent on consumerism, on how we treat out bodies and our planet, on how we treat each other, on how we waste so much, on how we take for granted so many things…….. and on and on.
I have been hearing and reading so many wonderful posts and comments from people who are taking this time to enJOY reconnecting with loved ones, reading books, reflecting on life and just making a challenging time better.
We always have a choice. I hope you choose to see the gifts that are now here and to uncover what it is that you cherish. I hope you will join me in holding the frequency of optimism. Together we create collective consciousness and consciousness creates…. let’s create HOPE, let’s see (っ◔◡◔) new and better HORIZONS, and let us all remember that the sun will rise again tomorrow and the next day and the next. We will get though this. Let us do so in LOVE.
