Still Good for You. Now, Enhanced!

Wellness means more than feeling good. It’s also “right” thinking. By “right” I mean, “positive thinking.”

The challenges that life brings in just one day, often makes me feel hopeless & weak. Those are the moments in life that my future is actually forming…becoming that which I am thinking. And that is a bit scary to me! 

I want things to go well for me, but thinking negative thoughts, thoughts of anger and resentment…get in the way!

But the decision is ultimately mine…

  • “How long will I stay angry?”
  • “Am I frowning?”
  • “Is my forehead still wrinkled?”
  • “That was funny…So why aren’t I laughing?”

These are some of the questions I have to ask myself in times of stress & tension….pain & conflict.

Take the time, instead, to reflect on the Unchangeable Constant, those things that bring Hope like, for instance, the Unseen. And realize…millions didn’t make it, but I was one of the ones who did!

…And don’t forget, if you have clean, running water, you are blessed! Water is always good for your body. So, if you are fortunate enough to have it, Use it, Enjoy it!

There’s the smile of a loved-one. There’s the hope that a new day brings! If you woke up this morning, there is a chance for another chance.

Ever wanted to do something different, but found yourself hesitating because of the unfamiliar? Getting out of our comfort zone can be scary and often confusing. I know, because I was forced to ‘do without’ after the hurricane!

After losing my job (of many years), I discovered that working for temp agencies wasn’t paying the bills. I collected Unemployment benefits, and job-searched. But opportunities are rare for an over-60 grandmother, whose entire career had been?” data-entry & customer-service. My knees ached, my feet hurt, my back ached, and I never had enough money left for steak! I wore the same clothes day after day, because my wardrobe was just that limited.

This was my reality-check!

After a lot of soul-searching, I decided to start looking within. “Was I it possible that I was doing something wrong?”

Sometimes, when life deals us ‘rough time’, we have to the best of it, and decide keep going. What I realized was that my trend of thought was actually holding me back.

You see, I decided that I wasn’t good enough, or that I’d be overwhelmed before the task even began!

I had to admit my weakness was a

Lack of confidence!

Sounds simplistic, but actually, it was frightening. I was hungry enough, alone enough, ‘without-something-to-do-today’ enough, to sit still for hours! And think! “What’s really going on?”

Soul-searching hurts, but it’s necessary for my future. It’s staring in the mirror at the one you don’t want to see!

No matter what you’re facing in life, you can boost your courage and your will-power, to envision any goal you choose. With clarity, you can endure the pain and you can make insightful decisions with calmness and stable resolution! Now, I speak to myself ..I use daily, minute-by-minute affirmations, like…

  • I am capable.
  • I got this.
  • I’m important.
  • I matter.
  • I will not quit.
  • I look good.

Refresh Your Soul: Color and Comfort in Abundance!

If you look around, you’ll realize that nature is extremely colorful. There is color in the trees in the fall and spring, the grass, the animals on land and in water! The sky changes colors with the weather, the time & the seasons! Meteorologist have confirmed that … Even the elements are full of color!

There’s a reason we find certain colors to be “comforting.”  According to Wikipedia, there is a science to human behavior, as well as a psychology behind human behavior…that is determined by colors!

Colors can warm, or make you feel “cold.” For instance, the color red can trigger passion & excitement, while yellow can calm you down.

Ow is the time to celebrate life and endurance through all the challenges and adversities of last year, while looking ahead to a better future!

Calming wind & sun!

Most of the time, now that we are socially-separated and masked-up, I find myself craving simple Comfort… Avoiding crowds, friends and family from another household, large gatherings…

I find comfort in solitude with the beauty I see around me…

  • flowers,
  • birds, and especially,
  • natural gemstones!

… all reminding us of how blessed we are to be alive … to be healthy or … on our way to “a healing” …

…and blessed to be able to simply, love oneself!

There is a magic Transformation-of-spirit …

… found in the secret of meditation, reflection and gratitude!

Here’s a way to find comfort — while focusing your attention on your favorite flower or gemstone…

(3-2-1 Secret Strategy:)

*Think & name 3 things you are grateful for,

*Think & remember 2 people you truly love, & finally,

*Reflect on 1 time you felt like laughing.

What a Freed Soul Feels – (Part 5 of 5)

There was a time in my life when I could not simply do whatever I felt like doing. I couldn’t turn on the TV at anytime of night. I couldn’t open the refrigerator and pick something to eat whenever I felt like it…because, It wasn’t my refrigerator. (And I remember owning a refrigerator, but had very little in it.) I remember a time when I didn’t have a radio handy, or an mp3-player, or an iPad, or even a computer. There was a time when we had nothing. Hurricane Katrina blew through our hometown, and destroyed it all.

But, now, many years later, here we are…

It’s not a secret…It’s well-known and accepted, that “as a person thinks, so Is that person.”

Truth is, I’ve always believed in the Unseen. So even though I didn’t see the streaming device, I believed I would, one day, own one.

A “freed” soul is one Who Believes. No food, no music, no movie…will inspire you if you doubt your freedom. Dare to believe.

Use the power within. You are pure spirit!

This series is about freeing your spirit. When dark times come, know that it is temporary. Believe things will get better. The soul that is free feels joy, even when in pain. Soon, those savory smells of good food will remind you that you are blessed; , that song will make you nod or rock; that exciting movie will hold your attention …and will help you to smile, and to feel good once again!

I pray that you are One Who Believes in hope. And when adversity strikes close, continue to believe. And continue to hope, relax & rest your mind, using the tools we’ve outlined in this series about “freedom” … because whatever you’re escaping, these tools still have the ability to transport you to a better place!

Atonement: a Hard Pill to Swallow!

How can I make-up for all the wrong I’ve done?

Maybe, if I start today, and never make those same, stupid mistakes again…

Maybe if I apologize, but will they believe me? Just saying “I’m sorry,” is not enough!

Maybe if I cry, they’ll believe I’m sorry.

Two weeks later, I messed-up again.

Atoning for past sins is really quite impossible. I can never do the right thing consistently. Part of me wants to give up. The other part wants to just hide. Then, there’s the seriously guilty part of me, that may as well die!

Guilt is a killer!

How can I ever atone? It’s a hard thing to live with: a hard pill to swallow!

Let’s be truthful.

I can’t. I can’t be right, or good, or perfect. There’s no way. Every time I try to do good, evil is always there, staring at me! Every time I try to say the right thing, it comes out wrong.

All I can say…. is…

…thank God for this One Truth:

A man on the street-corner told me a story about the torture of an innocent Man, thousands of years ago, Who prayed for His torturers, while they were torturing Him, Whose death actually paid for my wrongs!

“How is that possible”, I asked, “when I had not been born yet?”

The stranger explained that This Man’s death atoned for, not only my wrongs, but for the sins of everyone born before …And after His death!

Miracle of miracles, and an amazing gift of Grace!

The mystery of the Love of Jesus, makes it possible to release me from the penalties that I deserve for all the mistakes and wrongs I have ever done!

“Whaaat??!” I exclaimed.

Truth is: If I had not stopped to talk to this stranger on the street-corner, I might have gone on through life, condemning myself forever…miserable, angry, blaming others … or circumstances, for my misery.

So glad I stopped and listened.

Now, I have come to know…

When I mess up, all I have to do, is repent: acknowledge my sin, tell Jesus and anyone else that I’ve offended, that I am sincerely sorry, make an attempt to change the error of my ways…and immediately….

The bright light of Jesus’ love covers me, hides my sin and my shame, washes it away, and suddenly, I’m on the path to newness…a fresh start!

… And, trust me, I’ve started over many, many, many times!

But Jesus doesn’t condemn me…Instead… He keeps forgiving me, giving me another chance. Nobody loves me like that!

Atonement? Aaaahhh!

It’s In the old rugged Cross of Calvary!
