HEY MISS, WAIT…….

I was standing in line (not “to see the show tonight”) but at Whole Foods with only one woman behind me and one woman ahead of me in the check out line. The women in front of me, grabbed her groceries and left not realizing she had left her purse behind. Neither did I, or the cashier, until we both looked up as the doors closed behind her as she left the store.

The reaction from the cashier was spontaneous. He grabbed the purse, closing the register instaneously, and ran outside to see if he could find her before she got into her car and left. The instant reaction from the woman behind me was of anger and frustration for the cashier. My immediate reaction was that he is “AWESOME”.

From one perspective, the there may be cause for the cashier to be fired. From another, the cashier deserved a raise. By The Way, (I tried to say), neither of us were wrong or right. Simply two totally different reactions to the same event.

Granted, I was is no rush. I had no timetable that certainly could have influenced my reaction. Likewise, the woman behind me may have already been late and was alerady rushing. She also may not have seen the entire scene but rather only the cashier leaving and running out the door not realizing the reason why.

When there are gaps in information, we so often fill those gaps with our own stories. The stories created in our head shape our reality, whether positive or negative.1510828_10152197150260854_760073879_n (640x640)

Love Is Not

 Love is Not

seeing the forest for the trees

For all the trees in the forest

are but hiding your fears

yet there’s no one out there

look inside where truth resides

Image

Love is Not

about holding on

but letting go

the only way to truly fly

is being not afraid to fall

trusting in the wind

it’s not a giant leap of faith

knowing that life is there

forever watching over you

Image

Love is Not

being afraid of the thunder

lightning and rain

even if there is a

torrential downpour of sadness

pouring from the sky overhead

knowing there may be floods lasting

days, weeks, even months

knowing any adversity any storm

can be weathered together

Image

Love is Not

about remaining stagnant

standing still

getting in one another’s way

but rather taking the long hike

together finding each other’s

own path all in knowing

reaching the top is not the goal

but rather the miracle is both

in what is waiting up ahead

but also what is here and now

Image

Love is Not

true if only one is climbing

or attempting to change

another to fit their void

only together enjoying each moment

along the way loving with abandon

and being loved in kind as both

  relish the climb to forever

Image

With Peace, Love and Happiness

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

May this day ​ be a celebrat​ion of​ ​the “LOVE” that burns bright. If ​there is a special someone extra special ​may they be cherish​ed not only today but tonight and throughout each and ​everyday.  Think not of what may become but rather become enchanted with what is here right now and bask in the light.

​May this day be a celebration of the “LOVE” ​that is inside, the internal combustion for all that is. It is this that is so often ignored in the service of others but self is as worthy as anyone else.   Think not that there is no time to find and take care of thee.

​May this day be a celebration of the word “LOVE” that is expressed​ beyond that of the intimate connection and extends to both strangers and friends as well as family both two and four legged, too. Think not that any showing of love is too small, for even the slightest glimmer of hope can provide enough spark to light even the darkest of nights.

​May this day be a celebration of ​​the word “LOVE” that not associated with attachments, with loss or gain. 1 + 1 does not necessarily equal two, nor does being alone equate to being lonely. Think not that the world has passed those by who are not presently in the throws of love for they may simply be fine as they are, enjoying who they are, where they are.

​May this day be a celebration of the word “LOVE” that far out lasts any sentiment of hate, or fear, or loathing, whether self or otherwise.  Whose ever arms lovers embrace, may those they hold be true. Forever in the moment letting not the fear creep in to dim the mood, but rather letting love flow and allowing love to grow.

​May this day be a celebration of “LOVE” and the declaration of such be for today and for every day.

​​​​TODAY

I align myself

with all that’s good

and all that’s light.

I am one with the universe,

and the universe is one with me.

 From this moment forward, I am free.

I am a magnet attracting continual abundance

in the form of wealth, health and happiness.

With wave after wave of healthy,

happy and prosperous opportunities,

I simply flow.

Peace surrounds me,

​LOVE surges through me

as I give 

and receive 

graciously and

live gratefully.

Thank you. It is done.          ​


​May this day be a reminder of all the love

that has ever surrounded me or graced my path,

that I am love and all is love.

May this day be a reminder of the melting of my heart

and how precious the moments are with one love

and how those moments are some of the greatest of my life.

May this day be a reminder that love does not conquer all,

for love and conquer do not sleep well in the same bed,

but rather that love IS all and all there is

when I allow LOVE to conquer all of my fears.


May this day be a reminder.
