Inhale…Exhale…

Pain felt so deeply it make your heart stop briefly, your head pound angrily

Love felt so deeply warming your entire being, briefly taking your breath away

Disappointment you feel when someone you love experiences turmoil and there’s nothing you can do to make it stop; one of the worse things you can ever experience…helplessness

People around have no idea what you are processing inside, most don’t care; it’s not as if they can resolve your worries anyway…

Tears refuse to fall; spirit refuses to accept defeat

Something inside of you is fighting the darkness trying to take over; your will is stronger than anything that comes up against it

You can feel this happening inside of you; there are no words to describe it

The internal war is making you stronger and things that angered or saddened you melt away…

After a while your guides help you understand and know what your spirit, heart knows…you are just fine

You smile at this feeling a sense of inner peace spreading within you calming your entire being

In this moment you realize the one you love will be just fine in time; at their own pace and in their own time

Rain begins to fall, you release the chaos allowing yourself to breathe freely once again; rain is always soothing and cleansing

After a while the Sun joins you in the first new moments of the rest of your life…

You can’t look back even if you wanted to; forward progress is the only way

Inhale, Exhale…Inhale, Exhale…Inhale, Exhale…

Gratitude for Seniors-Elders

To the Senior/Elder population that sometimes becomes neglected…

To Ms Barbara (who may never read this but I want to celebrate her anyway) I am so grateful for your kindness and compassion.
Although I wish she wasn’t still in the workforce, I’m grateful for the opportunity to know and love her. More importantly, as much as she still has going on in her life, she takes time to make sure that I’m ok. Yesterday she stayed around and gave me a jump because my car battery died. In the rain with no questions asked she simply offer to help me and took charge of the situation (no room for me to say no LoL). Once my care was “alive”again she hung around to make sure I was ok to drive off.
Today, as soon as she arrived, she checked in with me to make sure I was ok and that my car was ok. She is amazing and it troubles me that others don’t seem to have much patience with her or do what they can to make her days easier. She’s got me though; I will do anything I can to make sure that SHE is ok.
To all of the Seniors/Elders I spoke with this week, who have complimented me on being kind and patient because many people have not been with them, I appreciate your kind words and it’s always my pleasure to assist you. Please don’t ever allow anyone to treat you less than what you deserve. You are NOT inferior and you are NOT forgotten.
People with little or no patience with Seniors anger me because when they become a Senior you can bet they will expect to be treated with compassion, respect and kindness. Before you make a conscious decision to be rude/impatient with an Elder, perhaps you should think of how you want someone to treat your parents and or grandparents. Perhaps you can try to understand that yes they may be a bit slower mentally and/or physically but that does not mean they are not worthy of your time, your energy.
I will always go to bat for Seniors/Elders even if they are a bit crotchety at times, heck they’ve earned it! Be kind, be gentle, be patient, be helpful because they DESERVE for you to be.
Perhaps my affinity for Senior/Elders is because I grew up without grandparents so it seems I’ve adopted every Senior/Elder. I have tremendous respect for them and a genuine love and concern for them. I don’t get riled up often but when it comes to Seniors/Elders, I’m a fierce protector and caregiver, so know that if I catch you being anything less than honorable with them, I WILL tear you a new one!

As always, Love, Peace & Blessings…

I’ve been ridiculed most of this lifetime and now that I am older, I can see there are different sets of rules for people who consider themselves “normal” and people like me who walk our very own unique, individual path.

People who usually dish out crap, certainly don’t appreciate when it’s thrown back to them. LoL People who use the term “oh just get over it already and move on” want empathy when it’s their turn to feel bad or experience something that is NOT so easy to move on from.

I’ve always been fascinated by humans especially how some things are ok for some but not for others…

Here’s the thing…I’m so grateful that I’m no longer the soft-hearted, walk-all-over-me HSP, INFJ/INFP, Empath that I used to be and people are beginning to learn to keep their crap to themselves instead of trying to give it to me. I’m still the HSP, INFJ/INFP, Empath I’ve been created to be however, I will put you in your place if you even think of trying to get at me!

Needless to say, my circle of people has dwindled to almost nothing…which is ok by me because I don’t want to be around people who don’t love and accept me as I am…all of me.

Let today’s spilled thoughts remind you to ALWAYS stand up for yourself! Yes it will feel uncomfortable if you are a newbie at standing up for yourself but trust that…

  1. standing up for yourself…gets easier the more you do it
  2. standing up for yourself…becomes a natural process for you
  3. standing up for yourself…FEELS GREAT

People like to share their crap but it doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Do what feels right to you; honoring yourself always. Now I’m not suggesting that you become aggressive or confrontational but you deserve to honor, support and love yourself completely. Most of all, you do NOT deserve to be handed crap from anyone; no matter who they are!

Oh and…don’t forget to stand up for the those who may not be able to stand up for themselves (i.e.; seniors children, animals…). I mastered standing up for others as a child but sort of just learning to really stand up for myself…flabbergasting isn’t it? LoL

And Hey Beautiful Spirit…You’ve got this! 🙂

As always sending you great Love, Peace & Blessings….

Empty Words; Missing Actions

My love affair with words began long ago…

 

Providing a bridge to a blissful place; other times sharing myself with the world

Creating smiles, comforting souls; creating sadness, tormenting souls

My energy defines their role; giving them power, bringing them to life

Experience is threatening my love affair with words; never imagined anything could come between us

People abuse words; creating meaningless statements and phrases

Often devoid of truth without considering consequences; selfish devoid of personal accountability

Invoking a false sense of security; creating deception and emptiness

Experience creates discord within our love affair; actions often tell a story contrary to words others speak

Empty words, missing actions threatening to consume this lifetime

Pain steadily transforming me into a “don’t tell me; show me” person; my adoration for words slowly drifting away

My brain says, “It’s what’s best to protect yourself”; my heart disagrees and pouts

Unsure of what will unfold, I can only hope that words and I will find a way to create and believe in magic once again.
