The fact is that you may wake up feeling happy and ready to tackle the world, and then suddenly things start changing, you fall off your high horse, you stumble, spill, someone is mean, you argue…
Today, I had various plans for the day, gym, sleep (I’ve had very little since Friday, its now Tuesday) organize my piles of coupons (this couponing is new to me) and make a grocery list for dinners this week, a trip to my favorite place, Target!
Then I am here, at park, blogging, while I watch my youngest practice riding his bike. It’s so cute, his excitement! He falls, more than he rides, but as long as I am clapping and saying, “good job, nice fall, get up and keep going!”
God our father is there for us,like we are for our Kiddos, cheering us on, saying, “get up and start again, I’m here watching you and want you to learn!” I think, this is life, what its about, the excitement of getting up after falling! Starting over, what’s the real big deal? My little boy gets it, why do we have a hard time as adults?
When we realize, this is one of those days you need to pay extra careful attention to your thoughts.
At anytime things can happen that will disrupt my day, I have to know this after working in a level 1 trauma hospital right?
Yes, car crashes, domestic violence, falls, snake bites, shootings, suicide attempts….
Many accidents, some meaningful.
Yes, horrible things happen, or could happen in our day, but wait, at work to other people, yes they happen. But to me? No, not to me, not to us who have absolute control of our lives, and ourselves right?
We understand the Law of attraction, ask, believe, receive.
We know God, our thoughts, and about how what we think, we beloved.
We know our thoughts become actions, so these horrible things and heartbreaking moments we skip right by them, because we “know better” right?
We are human, and this world is mean. It’s so beautiful and amazing that it can be horribly mean!
People are mean, we can be mean, and we can say the worst things out of our own fear and hurt.
It’s so hard to understand, but I remember what my Pastor says so clear, “apples come from apple trees, don’t get upset at the tree making apples! That is madness!” So we need to look at what people do, or how they treat us, and not be shocked or upset, just look at that and know, “yes apples, come from apples.”
We have to walk away from those apple trees that are producing harmful fruit, not look back, or think its our job to help fix that tree! Fixing trees (people) is really not our business! That’s Gods bizz!
Our purpose is to be loving and kind. Like Jesus was, no matter what, its hard, only he was the perfect extension of God.
I find myself around people who have hurt, mistreated me, take advantage, taken everything…
and my Aunt D tells me, “be loving and kind!”
This is so hard! But it change everything, and it attracts that back!
And, I can’t always do it, but I think we need to give ourselves credit for trying and practicing this. We will find the more we fight it, the more we attract it, the more we let go, the easier it is and less we are confronted with facing it.
Today, I lost control, but I know that tomorrow is a new day! And I’m thankful for that, and the fact that my life experience has trained me to always be ready. To always kill them with kindness, and you will never loose. You will never go wrong when you are loving and kind.
Jesus was always loving and kind, to even the worst of the worst people who absolutely didn’t believe in him and despised him!
We are human, we make mistakes, life happens, its how we learn and grow.
We aren’t perfect, and we need to forgive ourselves for that.
We need to stay alert, follow our intuition and listen to the signs that we are given.
Some of our biggest mistakes are when we have previously made decisions and not followed through with them.
We have heard whispers, and ignored them. Almost every time I have done this I have had a very good reason.
Or excuse rather.
“I’m tired, I’m not a quitter, I feel guilty…”
people will say I’m crazy, they won’t like me, they will think I’m stupid.
Or worse, they will call me those things.
It’s not true that, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
I wish it was true.
Words are played over and over in your head, and keep hurting.
If you let them.
We have to move on from how we were hurt, who said mean things, or treated us bad.
We have to always be ready to leave everything, take who you love (and hopefully your smart phone Haha) and leave everything behind for your sanity and happiness.
If you hold on, it just prolongs.
You never know what the day will bring, and if you know that no matter what, God is for you, and the universe will supply EVERYTHING that you want and need, you know that what you are scared of leaving behind is only hurting you to hold on to!
They are only things. We can get up and build again, that is how we are made!
