There are moments when replenishing the spirit, one reaches for others for inspiration and guidance. I am fortunate to have a plethra of individuals that do just that with their stories of triumphs and tribulations. Almost always, I find a source of strength within each circumstance that gives me an "ah-ha moment" or a smile or a realization that my life is in fact, quite satisfactory. For this months offering, I share with you messages I carry on my person every day. Enjoy.
"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possiblities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sign, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and everyone of us". Unknown Author
"In my uttermost bones I know something, as you do. It is that there can be no despair when you remember why you came to Earth, who you serve, and who sent you here. The good words we say and the good deeds we do are not ours. They are the words and deeds of the One who brought us here. In that spirit, I hope you will write this on your wall: When a great ship is in the harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for". Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D, Author of Women Who Run with the Wolves.
