An Antidote for Fear, Anger and Guilt

apothecary

There are some words that when understood and utilized actually activate your life’s energy flow. A proven fact. They can fortify your immune system (so you’re healthier), strengthen your resolve of things and assist you in overcoming doubt and other obstacles in your life.

Faith or Belief – The pure feeling and revelation of our relationship to creation and the infinite.

Trust – Confidence, believing in and relying on the qualities of integrity and goodness.

Gratitude – A feeling, a humble emotion of sincere and heartfelt thankfulness.

Courage – Bravery, the quality of the mind enabling one to prepare for danger even through fear.

If they came in the form of a pill, we’d pop the pills into our mouth in a heartbeat. 

Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. There’s a little more effort on your part required. The good news is that all are readily accessible, you just need to change your mind on how you view yourself and your capabilities.

So how can you accomplish this?

The “you” who is convinced of what you can’t do, and your head full of all the reasons why.

You believe you can!

You change your ATTITUDE!

You wake up tomorrow and say “I CAN DO THIS” !

You go through each day regardless of what happens believing you can do it!

AND YOU WILL!

The only one stopping you is … you,

your fears, your anger and your guilt.

So there you go.

The antidote you need, yours for the doing!

MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Have a great week,

Lullaby of Hope and Love (for my friends)

you are loved

~

love's lullaby

Love’s Lullaby

Just as a mother feels the beat of unborn child
I feel the rhythm from your heart ~ you are loved.
 
The music of you heartbeat so piercing and so sweet
you are special and unique and ~ you are loved.
 
 Yes there are those bad days, bad times,
(hard, hard, hard ones too),
but, hush now, hush now, do not cry ~ you are loved.
 
I sing for you a heart song to nourish you within
You are safe, and you are cherished ~ you are loved.
 
 Let my strength pick up your spirits
carry you along.
You aren’t alone, you aren’t forgotten ~ you are loved.
 
 You my friend so beautiful
I sing to let you know.
Do not be sad, I’m here for you ~ you are loved.

“On those loneliest days when you feel such despair
Reach out your hand, a friend will be there!”

Just one more time … you can get back up!

sadness

Yes you can!

And it’s not just hard …

Sometimes it’s “friggin” impossible!

So why should you bother? Because. Just because – that’s what life is about. It isn’t easy but it is worth the extra effort, come what may. The human spirit, the human soul. The need to live, to experience – to be!

“Remember it’s only impossible … until you decide it isn’t”

Through the pain, through the tears, through the suffering, through the agony, through the never ending onslaught of loneliness and hurt.

You can do it.

Get up!

Just one more time!

the hopeful heart

Yes you can!

 Live!
