Breezy Days

Read something which kinda made me say out loud; “Hummm”

“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” CG Jung

Well “clap clap clap”  I chose living stress free without even realizing it!!! Ok not TOTALLY stress free,  still adjusting to the facts; no health insurance, no steady income, the kinda stuff for a lifetime I felt was necessary.

Maybe I am finally growing up spiritually?

A dear friend recently wrote; “If we desire to let go, it means that there is something we are holding on to that really matters to us.  It could be an expectation, a core belief,  a need to be right or a deep wound.  The need to hold onto something we hold dear or find important causes us to tighten or cling to what we know or believe.  I always tell people that it’s not the situation that causes our feelings, but the meaning we give it. This makes it very personal and perhaps difficult for others to understand.   So, rather than consider whether you are ready to let go, consider loosening around the meaning you have attached to it.  Since our personal beliefs are so dear to us, we may find this difficult” ~ Mary Canane LMHC

She was so right and sometimes when it isn’t for our best interest a “suddenly” just may have to happen in our own lives to sever us from deaths door.  If that wasn’t enough to digest this morning my alarm clock woke me up on a day I didn’t have work. So what do I do, well open up my messages of course!  Another smack hits me, this time it was from a photography friend on Facebook. Her post read like this;

“Don’t take anything personally. Even when a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. Their point of view and opinion come from all the programming they received growing up. When you take things personally, you feel offended and your reaction is to defend your beliefs and create conflict. You make something big out of something so little because you have the need to be right and make everybody else wrong.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

So after a prayer and giving thanks went back to bed smiling. Disconnection from stress, letting go of control, was going to be a whole new way of living.  A welcomed adventure indeed!

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" Eric Curtis Cummings

    It often amazes me to find though I live by words, I share feelings and beliefs and hopes and history using words of my choosing, it may take the words someone else chose to open my eyes and my mind. Why do my own words fail me?
    They fail me because they are mine. I have assembled them from my own history. How important writing becomes when you understand that others will be your strength sometimes and your wisdom and you will become the same for someone.
    Ah…again…the power of words! The working of God for our enrichment.
    Happy days ahead and right now.
