My beautiful people I have a word for you on this blessed Friday.
Stop relieving the past, replaying the same loops, or fighting a fight that’s already over and start living in the now. Accept what was and embrace what is. You are not yesterday’s brokenness. You are today’s glory.
There’s always a storm brewing or happening somewhere in the world, or as close as your own life. Now, we can choose to wallow in it, or explore the beauty after it. I’ve seen the brightest sun, the most vibrant colors, and awesome double rainbows after the craziest storms. I mean storms that made you want to keep shelter inside, but I opened the door. The truth is, we’re going to go through crazy & sometimes chaotic things, (storms) but don’t get caught in the storm, step out and see the offering of beauty shining on disaster.
I personally look over my hand and act accordingly. I smile and hold my hand close to my heart to avoid nervous shaking. Life comes to sit at the table holding its cards just as close. We stare at one another without expression. I can see life is a great competitor, but I’m not afraid. Life throws its 1st card onto the table, I wink and throw mine. It’s my book:). Life squints wandering if I have a hand full of spades or face cards, but my bluff is beyond fierce. This game is ongoing with wins for me and a few for life, but we’re playing this game until we’re down to the last cards and I’m not losing! When you show up ready to win -you shall.
Affirmation: I take care of the world when I take care of myself.
Putting yourself first saves lives. It may seem selfish, but if you’re sick, defeated, dead & gone you certainly can’t help another. It’s not wrong to take care of you. I promise it’s the right thing to do. You’ll even save a life or two!! 🙂
