Strong and Steady

When things fall apart in life, can you put them back together?

Broken barns

Sometimes broken objects can be fixed without any detection and other times you need to throw it away or save it in its broken state.
Every day I walk by some barns down my street. There are some homes in disrepair and others that are strong and sturdy.

Broken Barns

The funny thing about barns is that they can stay up broken, swaying in the wind, and no one seems to wonder why. Someone once told me that they have a center post that keeps the balance in a not so study structure. Just like we have a heart center that can be strong with evenness at our center; keeping us strong in mind, body and spirit.

Working on Joy

I want to feel joy again

Remember when you moved from your 3 wheeler to a 2 wheeler bike? It was difficult but you learned your lessons joyfully

Dou know that spot in your heart that sends an electrifying zap to you as you smile and feel warm inside and out?

All the way down to your soul; centered in your heart center, that is where joy is. Joy is better than happiness; bringing with it a sense of getting through things that are difficult. Joy engulfs your entire being, sending shivers down your spine, warmth throughout your body and a glow to your smile.

Broken

Fixing things that are broken is difficult for some of us, and we all know someone who is good at fixing just about anything except broken hearts. Those people who seem to be there for you but it just isn’t enough because you have to learn how to fix yourself. Whether it is through relaxation methods, meditation or just taking a walk on a beach to clear your mind, you have to do it yourself.

When I want to feel like I am fixing myself, I think of relaxing by the ocean

Quietly Struggling through life

When I was young I used to believe in forever

When I saw this flower yesterday on September 10th, I thought of the strength of a single rose rising above catching the sunlight

When I got older, I realized that forever was not possible for many things in life. Just like a rose, it may look perfect today, but tomorrow brings a different kind of beauty and the edges may be a bit torn, but its beauty still rises strong and balanced for a short time.

Learning how to let it go

Letting things go that you need to is a problem for many people

Struggling with life is enough, you do not need to add to your struggle by getting stuck in the muck of holding on to grudges or painful moments with another person.
Let things go, especially things that do not mean much. Does it really matter if you are right about something?
Pick your battles in life; the ones that are meaningful and will help you to grow are the ones you should fight for.
