Here we are and all it took was time to get here. Since we are the sum total of all we have done, who we have been with, where we have been, and yes all we have experienced we have a lot more to account for than just hanging out in time.
What counts is who we are and if we have made a difference doing what we have done, influenced those we have been with in positive ways, been able to make the most out of where we have been, and contributed to what we have experienced. It is time to move beyond and create in life doing what it takes to impact life and make an impression so that we are remembered for who we are.
We often ask the question who am I? Well it is a good start to announce that we are light beings in human form to create a context for being here in body. Woody Allen once said that 90% is showing up. I tend to agree that when we are present and clear there is little to do but to make it better for our being here. Living each day letting people know we love them and seeing to it that people feel better about themselves for our being in their lives. It only takes a compliment, a kindness, a loving acknowledgment, to assure that life is better for our being in it. Sometimes this takes letting go of resentments, grudges, annoyances, and lots of forgiveness. Hello is great and it can be more spiritual to say goodbye.
By making attitude adjustments we can offer new ways to look at circumstances and behavior. Listening and responding clearly rather than reacting, being afraid, feeling insecure and dimming our own light. By being all we are we shine lightness into the world and create change just by being open and willing to assist. Life can be experienced as an active expression of our lightness or playing victim to circumstances, it is all about our attitude and the choices we make. Bless and Release.
It is time to take a quick review of the past, assess it for how we can benefit from mistakes and look for ways to improve our future. It is time to use foresight as a way to see that we can validate our choices rather than hindsight. By being open and authentic our foresight is a valuable tool to make changes in the moment. In this way we can create our reality and future. Things do happen and it seems we are powerless to make much difference. Always remember that is only in the smaller view and that we are beings of light so we have the power to zoom out and keep perspective in all matters. Keeping this perspective takes practice and it is time to create 2013 in ways that improve the human condition and tap into our lightness as a way to make our mark on this life. It is our design and our way of being.
We are blessed for being light so keep it simple.
People come into your life for a REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.
Relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you are here for a
REASON, a SEASON or a LIFETIME.
