Shared this morning at
Small Reflections ... converted
to black & white twice.
leave me wondering which one
is my favorite.
Perhaps you'd be kind
enough to share your views in
comments to assist?
Palms drip dew ... staining the sidewalks below.
African Lilies in my yard
open wide yesterday, have closed up ...
yet in JP's yard they're in full bloom
while totally 'finished' at M & J's.
Everything in it's own time ;--)
Louise Hay reminds us that RESISTANCE is a point of entry!
I know that FEAR is another.
Prosperity is not a problem for me ...
I block flow by holding on to that which
I no longer use, need, or want
simply out of HABIT
and FEAR ...
even when I know from experience
the habit no longer serves me well
and that the fear is unfounded.
I survived the loss of
friends moving away
my big brother
and a significant betrayal of trust ...
the loss of fur-friends Ralph & Charly
I lost nothing but the ILLUSION
the perception of what was
for love remained ... steadfast.
LOVE lifted me
even through the loss of my health
and led me to recovery.
Action and inaction require BALANCE.
Paying attention helps me shift appropriately between the two.
Knowing WHEN to be still and listen
when to move with bold purpose
and a willingness to ERR
in the service of learning.
There's no need to BE perfect.
Perfect is BORING and DANGEROUS
limiting to self
irritating to others.
Perfection is in the imperfection
the willingness to make mistakes
and to learn from them.
It takes as long as it takes ...
and even THAT is perfect.
Feeling the fear and moving forward anyway
I take one step at a time
remembering that FEAR (like resistance)
is an old friend
rather than the enemy ...
and I welcome the familiarity with gratitude
as I step out in faith.
"Rejoice in the small new beginnings. ... Remember that things come and go ... when something goes it is only to make room for something new and better." Louise Hay
