Dear Me;

No one is coming to save you. Drop the damsel in distress act and pick up your goddamned sword. You know what you need. Get up and make it happen.

Love

Let It Be 2-7-19

I’ve always loved this song. Even when I was a young girl this song would hold a special meaning. It never failed, it came on in the Knick of time to offer me the comfort I needed at that time. It reminded me then and still reminds me today to….Let It Be. I’m posting in the hopes that if anyone is struggling that this song will come as a reminder that whatever you’re going through….Let It Be. Everything is going to be ok. Many if you may not know the true meaning of this song, but here it is.

Paul McCartney wrote this song. It was inspired by his mother, Mary, who died when he was 14. Many people thought “Mother Mary” was a biblical reference when they heard it.

According to McCartney, this is a very positive song, owing to its inspiration. One night when he was paranoid and anxious, he had a dream where he saw his mother, who had been dead for ten years or so – she came to him in his time of trouble, speaking words of wisdom that brought him much peace when he needed it. It was this sweet dream that got him to begin writing the song.

He told the story to James Corden when he appeared on his Carpool Karaoke segment. “She was reassuring me, saying, ‘It’s going to be OK, just let it be.’ I felt so great. She gave me the positive words. I woke up and thought, ‘What was that? She said ‘Let It Be.’ That’s good.’ So I wrote the song ‘Let It Be’ out of positivity.”

Integrity 2-1-19

“A quiet mind married to integrity of heart is the birth of wisdom.” – ADYASHANTI

I read this quote this morning and I found myself pondering on my own integrity. It reminded me of the time I quit a lucrative and very prosperous position based on my personal integrity. At the time my boss was asking me to compromise my integrity for the good of the business. In other words for money. I refused, so I quit on the spot. I still remember the words he said to me. “You will never make the money you make here”. My reply was “I’d rather take that chance than compromise my integrity for a buck!”

I walked away that day with my head held high and have never looked back. In the end, he was right. I’ve never made the money I was earning at my position while working there, however I have never regretted my decision. I knew then like I know now. I made the right decision. I haven’t always made great decisions in my life but any decision I’ve made based on integrity has always been one with no regrets. I’ve found it easy to never look back.

Dear Me 11-12-18

Dear Me, (you)

Why is it that you’re everyone else’s greatest cheerleader, but you struggle to pick up the pom poms for yourself?

Don’t you realize that your cheer means more to others when they see you yelling “Yes you can!” for yourself? Only when you’re your own greatest cheerleader can you achieve what you must.

Not hearing that voice within?

YOU CAN DO IT! YES YOU CAN! BE YOUR SWEET SELF’S GREATEST FAN!

Highs and Lows 11-12-18

I’ve put $3 worth of gas in my tank before and I’ve put $40 in my tank. I’ve had $5 to feed myself and I’ve had $500 to go out to eat. I’ve asked for rides and given rides. I’ve had a house full of food and I’ve been without food. I’ve given people clothes. I’ve been given clothes. I’ve been in stores cashing out with no worries and I’ve also had to add it up and put it back. I’ve paid my rent in full and I’ve had to pay it late too. I’ve given money and I too have had to ask for it. We all have highs and lows in life, some certainly more than others, but we’re all just trying to make it. No one is better than anyone else, and I pity those who think that they are. No matter how big your house is, how new your car is, or how much money sits in your bank account – we all bleed red and will all die someday. Death has no discrimination neither should your life. Be kind to others. And know not everyone has the same heart as you… The people who pretend they love you so much will leave you standing in all the storms just so they can shine…

I Challenge you to copy & paste this! Most people won’t because they’re the person I’m talking about…. But if you are Genuine, Post A Picture of yourself.

Enjoy life! You only get one. ❤️

Kintsugi 11-8-18

Kintsugi – in Japan, broken objects are often repaired with gold. The flaw is seen as a unique piece of the objects history, which adds to its beauty. Consider this when you’re feeling broken.

I am sharing this because it’s a wonderful concept to ponder on the days I feel like giving up. I love the thought that despite being broken in many pieces, I can still be put back together and the scars or broken pieces will forever shine as beautifully as the gold the Japanese use to repair an object.

You Are Enough 10-9-18

It may seem obvious, but those who raised you may have disabled your knowing about something so basic it seems silly to have to say it out loud. But darling, I am going to say it.

You deserve to exist.

You are worthy of being here, just because, unconditionally.

You are a child of the Universe and as such, you are adored, even when you make mistakes.

You cannot get this life wrong.

Sure, you can stir up drama that may hurt you and others. Sure, there are spiritual and social laws you can violate, and when you do, things might get messy.

But nothing that you do can get you kicked out of the field of love, where you are always welcome and where you always belong.

You do not have to do anything, achieve anything, or prove anything to earn this birthright.

There is nothing you can do that will cause you to lose it.

YOU ARE ENOUGH, just exactly as you are.

Holding you in my enormous arms and rocking you with all of my love……

Your Inner Pilot Light
