Ali's post, this is a bit about what's happening right here, right now in my life. Just as the season are changing here, I know change is coming for me too. I choose to be open and excited while it's daunting and a bit scary too. Today i heard it whispered in my heart: Your hour of need is the moment of My coming. Today I choose to be vulnerable: it gives birth to joy, creativity, belonging, love. Today, right now i choose to love and live wholeheartedly: with courage (telling the story of who i am with my whole heart), with compassion (in being kind to myself first) and with connection (to be authentic... and not who others and myself think I should be). I choose to be self aware: to be true to who I am even if it takes my last ounce of strength.
I am so blessed. I love this post by Leo:
This is the only response that life deserves: overjoyed applause.
This morning, wherever you are, whatever life has given you, take a
moment to really appreciate this gift, and applaud. I mean, actually
Then give back to life, something, anything, to show your gratitude
for this miracle you’ve been given. Do anything: be kind to someone,
create something, be gentle with your children, do something where your
body feels full of life.
I am filled with gratitude to an awesome God: Heb 13: 5 be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have]; for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]
I don't usually share my journal, but this is almost word for word what i wrote this morning.
love and a kiss
