Life’s Internal Survival Tools … So Handy for Today!

I fear change, unless curiosity and anticipation encourage me through a newly opened door of opportunity. I hate what doesn’t agree with me unless my compassion, caring and need to understand takes charge and helps me to greater wisdom.

Reality can definitely seem overwhelming unless/until my imagination takes over and finally, I know sometimes I feel a sense of despair until my hopeful spiritual nature and dreams come forth to guide me to a better place.

Isn’t it a most wonderful thing to know that we (each) have our own internal toolbox of survival tools always available to us. If we remember to use them.

You do … Don’t you?

Be an Encourager. First to yourself and then to others! Thanks for stopping by and have a great new week to come. I wish you well.

Why … We Go On.

It’s really about self motivation when it comes right down to the carrying on of things when others all around are retreating, laying blame or quitting.

Tenacity is a good word. It means never giving in or up. It means going that extra mile when it appears all is going against you.

We can hold within our hearts excellent hopes and dreams for our futures (an important thing to do, absolutely) but beyond this, it is a “forged in fire, keep on keeping on”attitude of unrelenting determination that will get the job done.

And even more important is recognizing that with self reliance and self motivation for your own personal goals you become a torch bearer for others. Lifting up their spirits, letting them know all things are still possible, giving them something to believe in, not just you but themselves as well.

It’s called leading by example when you go on while others are feeling too tired, fearful or worried.

Know then that the feeling of helpless hopelessness cannot survive in an atmosphere of loving strength and peaceful perseverance, it just can’t! Which is why … We Go On!

Take care of you,

With much affection,

I Go On

There are moments … when I crave so desperately to be in your arms. I know you chose security over the insecurity (that was all I had to give during my time of loss and turmoil). Well actually insecurity along with my love, a belief in you and your loving words of support, and a true need for you by my side.

But I did and do understand. And I am happy for you. You are exactly where you want to be.

As for me, well, sometimes I find myself forgetting you left me to pursue your personal dreams, leaving our shared dreams far behind. Leaving me to conquer them on my own, reshaping into a single dream. And I have, for the most part.

Yet, even so, there are still those nights when the thought of being held safely in your arms is so compelling … sigh.

I have had many people ask me where my strength of will comes from (and my happiness). My strength comes through learned experiences of facing life’s hardships on my own, often when those I cared about weren’t there as I had thought they would be. This is called surviving.

And my reason for my happiness – conquering the adversity and fears that accompanied the hand I was dealt. Alone and on my own … yes, and sometimes so lonely.

But none the less, much stronger as a survivor of both life and love’s misfortunes because I am not helpless, inferior or weak and therefore …

You Promised Me This …

image

Unspoken it’s true
Yet you promised me this:
With our last kiss
one shared with bliss.

With final embrace
that’ll never erase
your gentle caress
of finest finesse.

Promising truly
a shining sublime
of, lasting always,
a love so divine.

Never ever to be
feeling bereft
and though I still cry
I now know why
… you left.

Tho’ love can be pure
It sometimes can’t endure
or so it seems
save in one’s dreams.

“So I’ll see you there
sweet love of mine,
Where love will last
for all of time.” ~ Plh, 2016

Perceiving Perception or … Shall We Change Our Destiny Today?

 

unknown

Physicist Werner Heisenberg concluded that both the experiment and the experimenter are changed through the act of observation.  If this be so, can we perhaps intervene with destiny by selectively conforming and responding to the daily environmental and/or physical phenomena/data we perceive (that which is most often just beyond awareness or understanding of our heavily preconditioned mindset)?

Why not? Some say that all things are possible for those who believe it to be so. When we capture or are captured by an underlying ethereal nuance found just beyond the boundaries of our reality (while viewing/experiencing an act occurring in our lives) we can become transformed (so to speak).  Certainly our way of thinking or perceiving alters to a degree. And in those illuminating discoveries we expand not only our knowledge but also how we will approach the next adventure in our life.

But have we truly changed our destiny perhaps even manifesting into a parallel universe? Have we changed our future? Would we even know if this occurred? All questions unanswerable but delightfully imaginative, which is where I believe these mysterious answers will be found and where the “id” of our being truly exists – if we allow it to do and be.

Shall we make it so? I think we should:  believe in the unbelievable, imagine the unimaginable, and mostly I would love each and every one of us to achieve the unachievable by always, always dreaming the impossible dreams!

Have a wonderful week to come in this universe or some other …

Dream On, You Intrepid Dreamer You … Dream On.

The stuff of dreams, ah now that’s the ticket to a positive entrance for your tomorrows. At least many would agree with this. I being among those who do believe in the importance of dreams. Day dreams, Night dreams and the Dream of dreams.

For those seemingly endless array of insecurities we either point out to ourselves or have pointed out to us by others we can still have our dreams and dreams are the stuff that hopes, potentials and possibilities are crafted from … always.

An abstract thought conceived from a hope or an idea appears first in the formation of a dream then (if allowed by yourself) slowly morphs into a loosely conceived game-plan followed up by a specific plan of action at which point there is the perspective and strong possibility of a go ahead signal (that also comes from within you, btw).

So dream on, intrepid dreamer, fill yourself with uplifting dreams and goals of a future you imagine, remembering that Imagination is truly the stuff (composition) of dreams and as previously mentioned, you can see where this may take you  – which is anywhere you want to go … if … you believe, really believe in yourself and your dreams!

I wish you most well this weekend. Enjoy, be at peace, follow your dreams and most especially be good to you!

with sincere affection,

Be a Greater Person thru Creative Inspiration!

you

When we find ourselves inspired by some great and wonderful purpose, each of our individual mindsets break their bonds. In that moment we transcend preconceptions of limitations even as our consciousness expands in every direction.

Suddenly the whole universe is available to us (as it always was). Dormant talents, thought processes and forces become online within each of us, stirring our hearts and creative souls; turns out we’re not hardwired into a certain way of being … we just thought we were, setting up restrictive limitations in the process.

But with this new and freeing awareness, we discover ourselves to be a greater person, one we never thought even remotely possible. All because our dreams fired our passions … our passions fired our inspiration … and our inspiration opened up the never ending creative capability within ourselves.

In this coming new year, be that greater person.

Fulfill your dreams.

You can, you know. If you believe you can!!!!!!

Have a most Happy New Year in 2016. I wish you all the very best creative energy possible.

With much affection,

~ Penny
