On The Wall.

If an ex- lover or current lover were to write something on a bathroom wall about you what do you think they would say? We have all been in relationships..some short, some long, some life changing and others just a moment in time. We have all been heartbroken and broken hearts ourselves. We have been left as well as we have left others behind. Once a parting of ways happens, the question did you part and were you a better person or did you slip back to someone less than elevated and compassionate.

It is Fall, a new phase in life is about to begin for many of us so the focus needs to be..are we compassionate, supportive and understanding as partners and friends. Do we support the people in our lives at whatever level they need or are we self serving to only care about how the other person effects us.

If you are currently in a partnership, think to yourself..are you there completely for your partner unconditionally with no selfish motives? Do you let them be the person they were meant to be with you as a support and cheerleader?

Be good to one another. Listen to one another..and when you listen to them, don't just hear them and support the things you believe in or want..really hear them and support the organic place they are in. Be their friend, respect them over anything else..and if there comes a time where you need to part ways, remember this thought..when they look back on you, let them look back and see a friend not a foe. In order for them to see you in that way, your behavior will have to mirror that of a friend and not a foe.

About Now.

This exact moment. What are you grateful for? Forget about the things you are not grateful truth, it is too easy to list those things at the drop of a hat. So fight past those things and find a morsel within this moment of gratitude. Once you lock in on that you can't help but smile..and not one of those superficial smiles but one that radiates from deep within you.

Each moment of each day has something redeeming in it that resonates just for you, to bring you happiness. No matter what. You can find it in the moments filled with obvious joy, mundane moments, moments of sadness and disappointment. You can find them everywhere, so long as you just look.

So take the time, at least once a day if not more to just find gratitude and happiness in the now, in the moment you are in wherever you stop to recognize it.

About now.

There's No Room.

The world is filled with a landscape of energy. As you journey through each individual day, each moment you experience new terrain with each step. Many times there is a bountiful and colorful garden before you. Each color brighter than the next, lifting your day and inspiring you with gratitude for the world that you live in.

When you have a garden such of this you mind it with reverence, enjoying each glance and each breath. You tend to it if you want to keep it in such condition. Nourishing the soil with nutrients and water, manicuring it to keep it's aesthetics and the room to grow and develop.

Occasionally, you will run into a weed or a dry patch..threatening to ruin the landscape that surrounds you. Sometimes you are what is stifling your garden to flourish with the way you care for it, your garden needing more than you are providing.

That is your life, that is the energy that surrounds you in your life. The ultimate goal is to live in a landscape of energy that lifts you, inspires you and the world around you. Interruptions of energy pop up in your life and garden that have the power to completely overpower the beauty of your garden. Negative energy, like a weed can suffocate all of the positive energy in your landscape. It can change the world around you and who you are as a person. There is no room for weeds and flowers to grow in the same pot.

Circumstances, disagreements, different point of views..all of these things make up our world. Respect the energy presented to you and then walk away from it. Do not take it on, do not plant it in your landscape, do not own it. Move away respectfully and continue nourishing your garden with positivity and things that inspire you.

Create your world, create the energy you want in your emotional landscape.

There's No Room.

Just To Be.

There is so much to be said in the art of just being. To be completely in the moment you are in, not thinking of the future, the past, what could be or what could have been. There is so much to be said in having peace, fulfillment and satisfaction in the moment you are matter what the moment has presented to you or what circumstance you are in.

It is an art because I feel as if it is almost a conscious decision that we have to decide to do in that moment, for it does not happen by nature for most of us. I think of the moments that it does happen naturally and draw that up to ensure that I have more of that in my days so that no day goes by that I have not enjoyed simply being.

What is it in your life that you naturally can just be in the moment? Is it a cup of tea, meditation, music, writing, being with a good friend, creating something..what is your zen? Take the time to incorporate that into your week..take the time to give your mind, body and spirit the chance to just be. Take all of your hopes, dreams, worries, stresses, baggage and just leave it aside for the moment and enjoy the life that has been presented to you in that very moment. Love your life for what it is, love yourself for who you are..not the life you once had, wished you had or the person you wished or want to be. Love your life today, love yourself today.

It is an art, a craft but you deserve to enjoy this moment in your life. Honor your life, honor yourself.

Just To Be.
