Special Delivery Back in Time

time-tunnel-through-gold-trees

What if you could go back in time to give yourself a message?

If I told myself not to bother dating the first guy who asked me out after the divorce because God has a much better plan, would I listen? Probably not, because I wasn’t listening very well back then. S0 now, I have more compassion for people who find themselves in unhealthy relationships and more appreciation for healthy ones.

Maybe something simpler would get through to my past self. Sometimes I just want to hug that mixed up, co-dependent, grief-blind woman I was, and tell her:

It’s all going to work out!

I promise.

Love YOU!

There are a few songs I’d like send back in time to myself. Here’s one of them.

What is Hope? a star that gleaming O’er the future’s troubled sky, Struggles, tremulously beaming, To reveal what there may lie. ~R.A.P., “Hope,” in

One-Liner Wednesday: Less Nonsense, More Love

We are going to have some nonsense, and the fun, silly kind is great. But it is possible to reduce the not so fun nonsense, especially when it pops up in my brain. I just have to say, “Stop it!” And move on.

Loving Me, Too

Love Yourself don't tolerate nonsense.

I have less tolerance for manipulative games and layers of unnecessary paperwork, but I still like a little silly, fun nonsense. Loving myself more means saving my time and energy for things that make sense.

One-Liner Wednesday is hosted by Linda Hill. Here’s her post:

We Are More Alike Than Different

“The earth is what we all have in common.”   Wendell Berry

Earth, The Blue Marble

We all live on the same planet.

We all need the same mix of air.

Designed to eat from Earth’s garden

And drink from bodies of water

Abundant in all of our bodies,

We all floated in our mother’s wombs

We all cry the same salty tears.

We are more alike than different.

You would think

we could all get along

If not for ourselves, then

For the sake of all children

of the great Mother Earth.

And we can.

FANNING THE FLAME 🔥 

RIP = Recovery Is Possible. Eric has a powerful story.

FROM STRUGGLE TO STRENGTH

I remember when I was young and my enthusiasm and curiosity burned bright. I was a happy, healthy and eager to learn more about everything. I was a straight A student and very creative. But under the surface there was a scared, fragile, uncertain and insecure little boy.

After a while the flame didn’t burn as bright and the happiness and enthusiasm began to fade. Eventually the flame 🔥 that burned so bright died and the doubt and insecurities took hold. The scared little boy began to search for a place to belong. Searching 🔎 for meaning, purpose, belonging and love. Love from anyone who would offer it. The funny thing is, I never really knew what love was.

I’ve experienced the unconditional love that my parents and family gave but that never seemed to be enough. It wasn’t what I thought I was looking for. They tried to no…
