faith…

Oh ye of little faith….   Why had that been the constant message in my mind lately? Do I really have no faith? 
I have hope… 
What is faith anyway?  How do we grow it? 

Checking the dictionary definition. Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.    Wow!  Complete trust. 

Have I ever felt complete trust?  Is that normal? 

friends…

Don’t take these awesome souls for granted.  Those who wander in your life and put up with your quirkiness and weirdness.  That accept you for who your are but challenge you to be the best version of yourself.  Those who you know if it weren’t for them you wouldn’t try half the stuff you do…  Good or bad…  Be grateful…  Life is too short…  It really is…  The beauty that I see in those that are on death’s door…  They are the ones that understand this truth…  They are grateful…  Humble…  Scared but kind…  God you have been there in my messiest of times and haven’t forgotten me yet….  This universe is too great and too vast not to be in awe of it and all the wonder it holds… 
Move on…  Heal…  Linger…  Ponder…  Grow. .  Be child like…..  Be who you are in the moment…  Just do something…  Even if all you do is watch…  Just be present…

Consider this….. .    Whatever this is…. 

eddy or whirlpool…

How do you know when you’re making the right or wrong decision? 
I envy people who don’t second guess things a thousand times and let their thoughts swirl about in the minds. This little unassuming eddy that keeps spinning and grows until it is this giant whirlpool of thoughts sucking anything and everything around it. Until it’s the only thing you think about.  What if I make the wrong choice?  What if I hurt people?  What if I get hurt?  What if I end up making the wrong choice and I can never fix it? Omg I am thinking about this too much….  Make it stop.  Does anyone else think this way too? There are so many other things worse than this situation. Why can I not stop worrying?
It’s  common theme.  Fear doubt worry concern… 
Some people are never plagued by it.  And others are tormented to the point of inaction. 
Where do you stand in the midst…  Eddy or whirlpool? 

fear is a ghost…

Fear is a ghost that follows you,  that haunts you.  Chases you,  reminds you that you’re weak and small.  It tells you constantly why you can’t,  shouldn’t,  won’t ever… 
When this fear that overwhelms you ….  Breathe….  Hope…  Dream…   And most of all don’t give up! 
Give your all and then give some more…  There’s always this place deep within that somehow replenishes itself…  Utilizes a strength we didn’t know we had… 
We look back over our lives sometimes at battles we faced and we wonder how we ever made it through.  I know sometimes those things seem to be impossible and daunting.  But somehow we conquered…  Maybe we went around,  got carried over, prayed  or just broke through.  However we did it…  We did it!
This ghost might constantly whisper in your ear that you can’t…  Why even try…  And sometimes we listen to it…  And in that case,  forgive yourself for it.  We are humans…  Full of mistakes and flaws.  We learn and grow from them.  We can even use those moments to teach someone else or ourselves. 

Life is beautiful.
Even in fear there is an opportunity for courage. 
Be courageous.  Forgive yourself. 
Love…. Often…. Deeply….  Passionately….

love is ACTION…

https://emma75love.wordpress.com/

Love is more black and white than we like to tell ourselves. Don’t allow anyone to keep you trapped in the “promise” of the gray area. The bottom line is: If they love you, TRULY love you, they’ll do whatever it takes to be with you. There won’t be excuses or doubts or fears or hesitation. Love is ACTION. Everything else is just words.
~Mandy Hale – The Single Woman

Read this on emma75love’s  blog.  So very very true. 

Words are lovely and we want to hear them because language is how we communicate.  But beyond the words there needs to be actions to back them up.  Otherwise they’re meaningless. 

Hoping for meaningful sincerity in my communication.
