“This is when the magic happens: right when you feel like everything is going wrong, shift your attitude to accept that it’s actually going right. Our judgements of how we think our life should be are preventing us from reaching our highest potential. If you’re going through a storm, hold the belief that it’s the perfect storm for you to be going through and that you’ve been given everything you need to weather the storm. When the chaos subsides you will experience the truth that is forever true; you are always taken care of, exactly where you need to be and your efforts are rewarded exactly when they need to be. Remember this truth the next time a storm is on the horizon you will grow wings and be able to fly right over it and towards the calm waters of truth and trust.
This storm has sucked me into its vortex and keeps me whirling around in the darkness of my selfish confusion waiting for someone or something to come to my rescue and hand me all my wants and wishes of ‘MY’ perfect life.
I believe this storm has me exactly where I need to be…5am, sitting at my dinning room table wishing that this chaos of searching for my ‘worth’ would come to fruition.
With a sigh of resignation I aimlessly glance over at my gratitude “quote of the day” and as I do every day at 5am…sorta, kinda read it then go back to bed.
Not this morning......This morning I find myself actually reading ….several time, It was a very clear and a direct order…’get off your ass, stop the pity party, you are exactly where you need to be, you have the wings to fly to calm waters of truth and trust.’
‘Write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens’
The basis of my Blog is about the content of quotes that my Gratitude app sends me daily. Basically it's what I learn from each one of them. I will read intensely about them, learn from them…then write, paint or photograph my truth.
What you will NOT get are my personal 3 golden rules…which I have had forever….they are:
1. Nothing about my sex life.
2. Nothing about my financial status.
3. Confidentiality is the highest form of respect..I keep it that way.
Caution: I write, paint and photograph as if I am speaking directly to you therefore, the word ‘fuck’ is used with high amounts of expression which may not end up grammatically correct! LOL.
I do hope you will actually read my Blog and find the content interesting enough to comment (I learn from feedback), share it and subscribe to it.
I will not overload you with daily blogs…we have enough thrown at us everyday….it will be more of ‘as the storm moves me.’
