The bridge was there, only I had never thought of actually crossing it. I loved the symbolism of the bridge, and the possibilities, it just never occurred to me to cross it.
Today I saw it in a different light, and the road beyond. It was simple really, all it took was the realization that “today” is really here. I can travel and explore beyond what, and where I have been. Life does go on. It is not by looking behind that we free our minds, but by moving ahead, into the world as it is now.
I thank my son and my friends for getting me to this part of my journey. Happiness is knowing you are loved. My husband will always be in my heart and part of who I am. That will never change. Today, he held my hand and opened the door, knowing the lessons and the love we shared will carry me through the tomorrows that are before me.
Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it
Found this quote in one of my profiles. I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.
There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”. For sure, what I am living is my personal experience. Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen. Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present. To succeed I have to be present.
Every frame of the “scenes” being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”
Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.
Day 2 PL Calendar – Be forever Young and Seek New Challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the every changing world.
I so truly believe in these words. One of the reasons I enjoy Second Life so much (virtual world) click here is the opportunities it gives me to express my artistic self, as well, as be anyone, or any “creature” I want. The creative opportunities are endless.
Every day, we live our lives usually dealing with the immediate needs that come our way. To keep our senses sharp and be ready to adapt, we have to be willing to “let go” of old habits, and to allow new ideas and expressions to colour our world.
Little steps. One day at a time.
In the PL community there is always someone to listen. Someone to “help” .. someone to “listen”
hello Morning. Watching the particle show last night, I was dazzled by the many displays and the constant changes happening before my eyes. The artist performing the particle show is very gifted, the changes ebbed and flowed to the beat of the music with a rhythm that was almost hypnotic.
As I watched her weave her magic, I thought, “wouldn’t that be something to try to do” that thought lasted but a second or so. Reality tapped me on the other shoulder. If I was doing what Lexxi was doing, then I wouldn’t be in the audience captivated, I would be focused on being creative.(active)
My choice at that moment, was to be her admirer, someone enjoying her talent, allowing my own thoughts to drift and my “battery” to charge, my creativity to be fired up my her talent, and use of it. (passive)
That is balance, that is knowing that there are times to be active, and times to be passive.
Have a fabulous start to a brand spanking new week….
