Faith and Grace

I think about dad a lot.

I don’t see him as often as I should.

 

There is nothing to explain really.

It’s just the way things are.

 

Yes I know.

I should, I must, I have to.

 

My point is about something else.

I think about Faith and Grace a lot.

 

I do what I can to keep the faith.

I believe that with grace, nothing could ever be lost.

Clarity

It’s clear to me.

I know what I want.

My goal remains.

 

It’s the process to arriving that’s challenging.

It’s also enlightening in unexpected ways.

Sifting through, loading and unloading will take a while longer.

 

Timing is essential.

One does not rush a delicate process.

Just as healing takes time, decisions must be processed clearly.

 

The end result is much awaited.

The anticipation builds with delight.

Excitement has never filled me this much until now.

Hope you'll be able to reveal something of this process as time goes by. It sounds like a blueprint for living! :-)

The Melody of Mid-Life

Don’t be afraid.  Take that leap of faith.

Only when you let go will you realize what you’re truly capable of accomplishing.

 

Find strength in uncertainty.  Persevere.

Truth and realizations emerge amidst not knowing what the outcome will be.

 

Pick your battles. Not everything is worth fighting for.

Eventually, things get straightened out.  Whether you meet again, does not matter.

 

Be willing to learn something new.

Growth never stops.  Embrace with openness what life has to offer.

 

Don’t just count your earnings.

Count your blessings!  They are worth more than money can buy.

A Sense of Calm

I feel a sense of calm within.

 

After many days of unraveling events, serenity has finally emerged.

Sometimes in the thick of it all, I wonder if I’ll ever simmer down.

A constant calling to the Universe for relief, my plea was finally heard.

 

The impulse has subsided.

 

I sit more comfortably now, contemplating but not waiting on end.

The early morning run, an afternoon massage and comfort food helped.

An email to a friend, comedy video and a friendly drink capped it all.

 

I am feeling much better today, thank you.
