Your Love Becomes You

 *

             “Self worth is said to be priceless. Both yours and mine. But it still remains a truth that the nature of our very being, shaping our conduct in everyday life, will ultimately determine the value of who we are/become. Therefore it follows that …

           … your love becomes you.” ~Plh

Have the best week possible that you can, I wish you well!

It’s Okay to Be What You Are: Human

f37fc55557fe485b7e61d8ce28b5f947.jpg

It is okay to be human and it’s okay to make mistakes. It’s also okay to say “I made a mistake”. It’s okay to fail. And okay to say the wrong thing at the wrong time; to make an error of judgement; to let someone down you care about; to be fearful at times; to be stressed out; to worry about today and or/tomorrow; to feel guilt/anger/disappointment/hurt over something from yesterday. It’s okay to feel all these things because you’re/we’re human.

Every single one of our species on the planet is human. Before we’re anything else we are born as human beings. We ALL share this commonality. Everything else, we become aware of or learn about afterwards – Our race – Our ethnic background – Our belief systems. Our likes, dislikes and so forth.

The most important thing is while we’re (all of us) busy being human, each of us is unique. This is important to remember. We will, as we grow, have individualized strengths and weaknesses specific to our background and experiences. Very important to remember in the scheme of everyday life because this is why we make mistakes, each to his or her own, according to our particular learning curve and life adventures.

Therefore, to live one’s life it is imperative to recognize our own humanness and accept that things will go wrong and sometimes it is because of something we did or didn’t do. Accepting it and moving on is the best way to be okay with yourself.

There are many stressful things happening in the world today and I doubt it is going to improve any time in the near future. But how you feel, first about yourself and then about others will help you to guide yourself through this troubling time period. You’ll find you can make better choices for yourself and those you care about if you remember you’re human (and all the inherent weakness that comes along with). Armed with this perspective and acceptance, you will be able to expand the control you have within your own environment.

It’s that simple, really. The input from others and how you relate to them begins with recognizing that you are first and foremost a human being (as are they) and it’s okay to not be perfect. To be different. To be your own person. Respecting yourself goes along with this and towards others respecting you as well. How you relate to yourself is how others will relate to you and reaching your own goals will depend on just how well you treat yourself first.

Recognize and accept that you may not always get things right but … it doesn’t make you any less of a person or human being. You’re still you. You’re still important, whether making mistakes or not and you always have the value of being your own unique person … that’s what really matters most. To you and everyone else.

Thanks for stopping by, I wish you well.

With great affection,

When Words Overwhelm

Silence can be a good thing giving time to reflect on values as opposed to desires. Honor as opposed to polarizing negative ideas which separate us from one another. Wisdom as opposed to valueless words being said and repeated leading to emotional reactions and nothing more.

It’s time to decide what you, within your heart of hearts, believes in, for when our souls touch, as they shall, there will be no animosity, no negative vibrational causation from physical manifestation (owing naught to an irrational thinking brain and all to a loving heart).

When words overwhelm, reign in your emotions, allow for the threads of life originating from your soul to lead and direct your actions. Breathe in life, and the natural way of being. We are an important part of each other and our universe.

You, we, are better than this time in humanity’s existence. So much better.

Time to make it so, I believe.

Tomorrow’s Mysteries and Our Dance of Life

In a poetic manner one might say we dance our way through life, in spite of our concern for tomorrow’s unknown and the burden of those heavy laden pieces of our yesterdays creating missteps within the flow our momentum.

Yet our momentum will still carry us forward. It cannot be halted. It is the unknown that continues to propels us – the hidden mystery of our purpose. Truly. It is this same mystery that inspires. The creative/imaginative power inside our heart and soul incessantly resisting negative tides, overcoming, moving beyond a myriad of unanticipated obstacles in our way  – along our way.

Never doubt your individual power and ability to overcome and move onward. It’s always there, just waiting for you to activate. Know that your unique dance of life is singular in it’s purpose, stronger than you can imagine, blending as need be with others revealing diverse and exciting discoveries which lay at the universal heart of life’s mysteries.

“Sing me to the moon

then love me far beyond,

all of this and more

Life’s universal song.” ~Plh

“Believe in yourself, your individual self worth, understand that your uniqueness is the special gift of life. You are far more than you can imagine, making your worth priceless.”

Thank you for being you, thank you for stopping by,

I wish you well,

Neverending Change, Captured in Words

Words, words words. They’re amazing things aren’t they? Drifting in, around and through our thoughts and emotions connecting with or latching onto every bit of life’s often overlooked creative aspects and/or acquired wisdom in our daily, sometimes meandering advenures.

Those minutiae of flotsam within life experiences, frequently add to an artisan’s imagination, collaborating with her/his words to bring forth the profoundness of a thought, idea or expression.

On the one hand we’re blessed with this finely honed awareness of life, on the other hand it can often lead us far from our original intent as life is a never ending spiral where the old gives way to the new (and upon occasion revisits the old again) and as we all recognize about change … well … it’s constant, whether we wish it were so or not.


I believe the key
here is to embrace change as often as one can, recognizing that even during its turmoil, within its essence is an neverending source of information and inspiration for the next great thing you shall write, my creative soulmates.

Thanks for reading my written thoughts. I wish you well.

Words Within Worlds Within Words


~ Well written words reveal themselves to be branches spiraling ever outward; releasing and igniting an ever changing spectrum of emotions ripe with potential for the emergence of new thoughts and ideas from those readers/speakers of our verbal creations.

~ Whether fiction, nonfiction, prose, scripts, lyrics or other, writers do much more in our crafting of words than just informing or entertaining.

~ Perhaps we may view each of our written endeavors as not just creative methods of communication and/or expression, but more aptly as inventions of innovative and thoughtful imagination, serving up potent catalysts of change involved with the evolution of who (as human beings) we are or in an even more expansive view ~ of who we’ve yet to become. ~Plh, 2017

Love – Empowers Us to Endure (and overcome)

​♡

Love does bless with abiding strength

so deep, so strong, so pure,

nothing overcomes unconditional love

as it gives us the power to endure.” ~Plh

Love is a very small word representing the biggest meaning in the world. There truly isn’t anything stronger or greater than love and when given free reign, it can conquer fear and hate.

Love large, it does a body (and mind and soul) good!” ~Plh

Take care of you and yours.

With sincere affection,

Penny

 

We Are The Good People – If Only

anewbegng

“Let us love, not hate in a world of uncertainty & fear. We will always be the one to shape our life’s flow and the direction. If we allow ourselves to be led, let us not blindly follow.”~Plh

“If only” you think to yourself knowing that worries will probably be the start of your new day making it extremely difficult to accomplish things with a happy heart, much less positive energy.

Truly, there exists altogether too much negativity to view and experience in the modern world of our lives a.k.a Social/News/Entertainment Media Overload. Those personal comments by those you know and those you don’t. News media’s seemingly never-ending reflections of what’s wrong in our lives and on our planet. And not to forget the amazing ongoing volume of advertising everywhere for everything (while some advertising appears to be of a positive nature it has still become an insidious encroachment in our everyday life).

But, what if we begin each day with the premise of knowing we are good people with positive, loving thoughts and then expand out from there.

Instead of investing in the newest, latest better than before iphones, pc’s or game playing apparatus and the ever newer extremely violent game (oft time becoming obsessive and addicting), invest instead in positive, happy comfortable feel good types of things (and not necessarily things you purchase ‘with a budget that says you can’t really afford it anyway’) for you, for your family, for your friends, for your coworkers, for life overall. Don’t you think we’ve carried consumerism just a smidgen too far?

Instead of watching increasingly violent movies and/ Cable/TV productions look for happy gentle movies and TV shows (hint: there’s a whole bunch of this type of available content from the previous century) or instead of reading dystopian or the weird and scary type of “best selling” books look for the well written novels with a more evenhanded approach to plot, character development and outcome. Instead of watching the “what’s wrong with everything and everybody” news reports – develop the instinct to recognize actual news reporting from opinion giving commentaries. Seek out places of well-being. Search for happy news. Good people doing good things in your community and beyond. Create an exciting new panorama for your daily life viewed from positive possibilities, subtracting those items (and people) which negate and diminish while adding items (and people) that assist your positive mentality to flourish. You and I can do this. Yes we really can.

Because I have to tell you there is a large amount of positive and good things happening out there. Although currently relegated to the background in much of our everyday life’s awareness; crowded out by negative sensationalism of every type.

You can turn your television or computer or iphone off for a few hours or days or …

You really can. It is still a really good world out there, more noticeable when there’s not so much noisy nonsense filtering it out.

You see, we are good people. You and I and the many overly concerned, confused and fearful multi-billions on this planet. And honestly, one by one, in a polite well mannered way, we can begin to remind each other of this humble and truthful fact. Beginning today.

So, yes we … you and I … can. Right now. This minute. One by one by one.

Wishing you a pleasant beginning of the new week. May it be a positive and prosperous one for you.

With sincere affection,

~ Penny

 

 

 

 

Remembering Who We Are

“We are of nature. When the two (humans and the natural order of our home planet/Universe) are separated and viewed as different or individual things, a grievous imbalance occurs. Harming both, as may be seen today. Connect with your natural roots ~ it is as life (all life) should be.” ~Plh

Have a positive and relaxing weekend. Wishing you most well and happy.

With much affection,

~ Penny
