The Unexpected…

Life has a way getting our attention. It is often through the unexpected that we gain the resurrection of strength, courage & a profound ability to become more than we could have possibly imagined.

It’s often through the unexpected that life & purpose becomes evident. There’s always more than meets the eye taking its timely place.

At times, it behooves us to welcome the unexpected.

Speak life, think well…believe. ~Storm

Time Alone…An Emotional Break

Time Alone...An Emotional Break

We are wise to give ourselves an emotional break. Time alone is essential, as it allows for soul searching, self -awareness, growth, and the many other factors that come to assist us in becoming more personally developed & accountable with our choices.

Example: It’s interesting how we allow ourselves to enter into new relationships (having just ended one a few weeks ago), expecting happiness to all of a sudden to become a reality. With no time off to examine/re-examine one’s own behavior or contribution to the demise – how can we not pick up where we just left off?

When emotions are in the lead role, we go where we want to go…often into the arms of those with whom we believe we can find happiness, comfort, etc. It can sometimes be difficult discerning our needs from our wants. If it feels good, then it must be the right thing to do – not always the healthiest of alternatives.

It’s difficult to establish healthy relationships when we’re overlooking the health of our own well-being. The soul needs a Higher rule of Authority for living and being. I believe this. This comes into view through an agreeable alliance with God, the One Who guards and directs our path with guidelines that teach us to establish boundaries for living.

This is no indication of a life without challenge, disappointment or mistakes – rather, one that assists us in maintaining an inner stability against the inevitable tides of living. Know what you believe and why you believe as you believe. We function from the foundation of our beliefs, whether healthy or unhealthy.

Additionally, time alone helps us to decipher and to put our priorities into order…giving our emotions a break.

The very principals, guidelines and insights that produce personal health and well-being, are the same ones that produce relational health and well-being.

Do you ever spend time alone? Is it beneficial?

Honor Your Rhythm

Honor Your Rhythm

As we live our lives, it’s much like finding our rhythm on the Djembe’ (African hand drum). Humbly commit to learning, no comparisons allowed. Participate authentically & trust that you will come into your own – let love, patience, work & time take its course. Your rhythm (just like mine) is essential as we have our being.

Your rhythm is your voice, it is your trust and instinctual timely as you move through each day.

It is up to us to accept our rhythm, as no one else plays that significant role in our lives.

As we learn to honor our rhythm, respect our rhythm – we honor our time & our lives – others will follow our lead.

Have you found your rhythm?
