Each of us must understand that our time in this world is so short, that darkening it with useless arguments, jealousy, not forgiving others, discontentment and bad attitudes is not a productive use of time and energy.
Becoming YOU is not a destination: it is a practice. And with every new moment in our lives, we get to practice.
Sometimes when we flail, fight and resist, we only sink deeper, perhaps even drown in our unwanted reality.
With some nurture, time and patience, we can restore ourselves and rise from the ashes of burn out with beautiful green fields of mental, physical, intellectual and spiritual health.
The skies may seen grey when we experience loss. We can use our memories to see blue through the pain.
Have you ever looked at someone and something they could do and said, “I wish I could do that?”
The wound is not only in the body and the consciousness of the other person, but the wound is also there in you.
There is a tendency to believe that we will remain the same person forever, and that the person we are fighting with will remain the same person forever, that they will never change.
We can Forgive ourselves, and in doing so, open ourselves up to the emotional healing we all yearn for.
Joy isn't just something we have. Others have it too and we can partake of all of it.
