Grateful for Kindness

This morning on my way to work I saw a homeless man walking along the street. He was cold, he had a limp, his clothes were tattered and his shoes were way too big with holes in them. As I drove by I realized I had nothing to offer him. In that moment I consciously sent love to him and my eyes filled with tears. He looked up for a second and gave me a smile, in turn I smiled back and put my hand to my heart. In that moment a million things came flooding in to my mind. I felt his pain and his feeling of deep loss, I don't know what loss but there was great pain and loss. I felt gratitude, immense gratitude for the life I have, for the love I have and for the comforts I take for granted. I looked at my shoes and I was immensely grateful for them. They fit, they are comfortable and I chose them because I liked them. I took a moment to thank the divine source for all that I have in my life. Mostly for my mental health and for the comforts of life I so often take for granted. I also sent my gratitude for the smile this man gave me. For the exchange of kindness and love between us. The synchronistic part of all of this is that I just spoke with a friend the day before about organizing a drive for the homeless. This was the message from the universe that kindness, no matter how small matters. I hope that each person who reads this today takes a moment to be thankful for the things we are blessed with. Look at your shoes, be grateful. Feel your clothes, be grateful. Be grateful for the ability to shower in warm, clean water each day. Be thankful for everything today, and radiate love and kindness. Namaste :)

Keep climbing - There is strength and beauty from every experience

Repost from: Monday, October 13, 2014
I spent the weekend with family and caring for my Grandmother. There was conversation around growth and the trials that we all go through. And I really started thinking about my path and the trials, challenges and just all around difficult times. And what I saw through it all is that I could never appreciate my life the way I do now had I not been through all the things I have. There was far from a perfect childhood, yet I was loved. I had far from a perfect first marriage but it was perfect for me at the time, and my two children were such a blessing from that. Looking back, sure I could have made better decisions, but I made the decisions that were right at that time. I have climbed the mountains and I stand at the top looking around appreciating the beauty of all that has brought me here. I have such gratitude each and every day for the relationship that I have, my children who have taught me to be patient, loving, and courageous. I still have many miles to go in life, but the greatest gift is learning to live in the moment and appreciate what I have today. I am eternally grateful that my awareness of life is getting better each day, that my experience of love deepens each day, and that gratitude increases every day. I hope you can look at your life and see how far you have come, and how much further we can all go. Breathe in the beauty, and have gratitude for all that has happened in life and all that promises to be. Namaste :)

Love - Make it a point to feel and see it today

Love. Love. Love. What a tremendous feeling to have, to be loved and to love. So much love surrounds us even when we may not feel it ourselves. Recently I had one of those days that I just didn't feel loveable. I am not sure why we have those days, but when we do it is so sad to feel. Yesterday as I was driving to work and I heard a song that reminded me of my cousin who passed away earlier this year. I started crying and as I was talking to her telling her how much I missed her, I wondered what it was like on the "other side." I asked her if it was everything that I think it is, pure love and joy. And then it came to me, it isn't just on the other side, it is within us at all times. We are made of the universe, we are pure infinite love and joy. Sometimes we just get bogged down while we are here experiencing this physical world. We are always pure, infinite love and joy. Sometimes we just have to go within to remember that. I am overwhelmed by the love that I feel and the love that I have from others, I am so beyond grateful. So today, place your hands to your heart and remember that you are pure, infinite love and joy as well. You are loved, you are love. Namaste :)

Magical Energy

Since the eclipse/full moon on Sunday I have felt a break through in life. It has been as if a ceiling has been removed and I am limitless. The thing is, I have always been limitless, but I have certainly limited myself in my beliefs in the possibilities in life. I released all that no longer served me and welcomed in abundance in joy, finances, health, hope and beauty. I feel immense joy, so much that it is radiating all around me. I am so grateful each day for life, for the people that are in my life, for everything - everything! I feel as if I can shout from the rooftops how miraculous life is, how infinite we are and then simply take flight. It is a phenomenal feeling, and I think I realized as I talked to the universe and moon that truly we are glorious, limitless, magnificent beings - each and everyone one of us. I am so grateful for this creative writing space I share with all of you, and I am so grateful for this community of people that I share this space with. What are you grateful for today? Feel it, write it and believe it! I am sending out immense love and light to all today, radiate love and joy! Namaste :)
