Consider that some of the most wonderful and rewarding days of your lives haven’t happened yet. Peace & Blessings, JtB
Work on yourself. Have compassion and patience for yourself. Allow yourself to be beautiful and all the rest fall into place. Peace & Blessings, JtB
There is no outside force that can convince us of our value, our deserving or it, or even our unique and divine gifts. Being extraordinary is an inside job. Your soul is speaking. Learn to listen. Jtb
GIVE THE GIFT OF LOVE
I see unopened gifts everywhere- callings and abilities that are longing to be opened and enjoyed. The more (inner) gifts we can open, the more satisfied we are. The more (inner) presents we open, the more authentic our presence. Unpack your brilliance. Take it out of its little box- its too small to hold it. Forget about the store bought gifts this holiday season. Remember the gifts that you were born with. They are yours for the opening. Love it Forward…Peace & Blessings, JtB
OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE
Sometimes we obsess over defining what is or should be our purpose in this life. In truth, the answer may be a simple one, but we overlook it in our wanting or searching of it…To live our lives as best as we can; to serve as we can; to be an example of LOVE and LIGHT for others.
Focus on whatever it is that makes you full with passion and pride… This could range from the mundane to the sublime. If you are passionate about it then it is true and purposeful for you.
As we age and our lives are defined by our choices; as we grow and evolve in our awareness of self, so too will our purpose.
Just being happy to be making a difference in this troubled and unbalanced world is a purpose. Food for Thought, Journey to Balance
I was RAISED; I didn’t just grow up. I was taught to say please & thank you, to have respect for my elders, lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door for the person behind me, say excuse me when it’s needed, & to love people for who they are, not for what you can get from them! I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated! Now, if you were not raised this way; TEACH YOURSELF … YOUR PARENTS MAY NOT HAVE BEEN PERFECT! OF COURSE NOT…THEY ARE NOT INFALLIBLE EITHER…BUT YOU…DO NOT HAVE TO REPEAT THEIR MISTAKES…YOU DO, HOWEVER, WANT TO BE PROUD OF THE IMAGE STARING BACK AT YOU IN THAT MIRROR….
Food for Thought, -M :)
Take a breath. You are worrying right now but somehow this isn’t helping; stress isn’t helping the situation. If anything, you’re making it worse and inviting more worry into your life. I know it seems difficult to not worry about things that aren’t in your control, but you just have to change the way you see things. Just because you want things a certain way doesn’t mean it is the best way for you.
Take your time. Embrace all that is unfolding around you. If you can change it and want to, then do it. If you can’t, then you have to learn to let it go. This requires courage and trust.
As your day or evening unfolds, remember this: Every single person reading these words is on a path of self-awareness and self-actualization; and there are no exceptions.
Thank you so much sweetie. Truth be told, I have not posted very much lately. I am working in the field and won’t return home to New York until after the New Year. Today is the first day in a long time, I have some down time to sit quietly and reflect. Tumblr and this blog helps sort out my feelings and regain perspective. So glad you stopped by, Maritza
Today there’s a stranger somewhere who really needs your smile … perhaps on the street, in the elevator, in line at the store … you may never formally meet or even speak and there’s no way of knowing for certain who that stranger is. So please don’t take a chance and miss this opportunity. I promise your day will be better, and someone else’s will change in a powerful and extraordinary way….Excerpt from the Book: Begin with Yes … Peace & Blessings, Journey to Balance
