Opportunity to change

As we get older we discover that our weaknesses, failing and short comings are in fact opportunities ... opportunities to stretch, to grow and change. 


Opportunities are favourable occasions allowing us the time to exchange a belief, transform a viewpoint, adjust our thinking and revolutionize our perspective. A chance to see life from a different angle. To see what was previously hidden from sight in a new light. It is a position from which to advance, to increase and make progress from. 


Opportunities look different for everyone but they often find us catching our breath as we pause to consider the merit of such change. We calculate its purpose and dissect its relevance. We question it's validity and value - How does this change impact me and my world? What will I lose in the process? .... What might I gain? 


Opportunities require fortitude and endurance. They may prove difficult to overcome, seem insurmountable or impossible to achieve. Yet, it is these very circumstances that can bring about the greatest and most significant breakthroughs in life. We must take courage, remain steadfast, tenacious and resolute in order to overcome an opposing doubt or ever-widening obstacle standing in our way. When we do so, we discover that we are indeed braver than we ever imagined and more courageous than once thought possible.

When we are ready to act instead of react we position ourselves for forward momentum. We can genuinely embrace our short comings and embrace a new way of doing, seeing and being.

Don't let life pass you by!

Friendship


Good friends are like stars …. 
You don’t always see them, 
but you know they are always there.
- Unknown


A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
- Bernard Meltzer



Friendship is a sheltering tree.
- Samuel Coleridge



Even after all this time, The sun never says to the earth, "You owe me." 


Look what happens with 
A love like that. 
It lights the whole sky.

Crazy times!!

We all take different paths in life, but no matter what happens, we take a little of each other wherever we go. My friends have changed me in profound ways. Some are near and some are far. So blessed by the amazing individuals in my life. 



Friends of the heart are friends forever. They impact your life in ways you never expect. This kind of friend is like a four leaf clover ... hard to find and lucky to have.



Love you all

Graduation 2011


Last night my son graduated from Year Seven 
.... goodbye to the primary school years. 
He has done me proud.

Today is his thirteenth birthday. 
The years truly have flown by!!
Not sure I'm ready for this next phase :0

I can't believe 
that I am now the mother 
of two amazing teenagers. 
I am so very blessed.

My refuge

Ruins on the island of Mallorca

Refuge .... 

~ a shelter from danger

~ a place of safety

~ a place of exceptional protection.

... there are times in life when I need a stronghold, a sanctuary and a fortress. When life squeezes the breath out of me, I need a place to camp out and get away. My heart and soul takes refuge in a place of safety and exceptional protection ... under the shadow of the Almighty. It is my shelter from the storm.

This is my journey of contemplation and you are welcome to join in ... or just take the moment to pause and ponder. Either way I hope you feel inspired.

Trust.Believe.Hope.Pray.


When you find yourself perched on the edge of reason, when difficulties are looming and struggles at hand, when the way seems ominous and the view obscured, when what holds you back keeps you small and contained, 
release yourself. 

Trust.Believe.Hope.Pray 

Leap from that cliff of doubt and plunge into a sea of possibilities.

Unexpected


On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.
For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.
For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.
Won’t you join us?
    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
    2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
    3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!
This weeks word is - 'Unexpected'.


Life can be unexpected 
with all the twists and turns. 
Parenting is this way, really really unexpected. 
I wasn't quite prepared for the way my heart enlarged 
when I brought my baby home from hospital.
Or the way my heart ached when their heart ached
The awe of being a mother was previously unimaginable,
hard to comprehend
and NOW hard to imagine any other way. 
The teenage years are so very unexpected. 
BUT it's not like you think. 
Things happen, wheels spin, the world turns on its axis 
and everything changes, 
in ways that you never dreamed of. 
It's all a bit of a surprise ... 
the gaining of independence, the pulling away, 
the learning to drive, of getting a job, 
of securing their own future.
It's all kind of bitter sweet.  
Unexpected joy, unexpected loss!

Act justly

Micah 6:8
~ To walk justly is to be impartial in action or judgement. It is to be true, honest, fair and accurate ... without prejudice or bias. 

When we cultivate an objective, equitable and open minded expectation we make room for impartial opportunities to manifest as absolute possibilities. If we remain stalwart in our irrefutable beliefs and live uncompromising in the light of truth, we give voice to distinct convictions and extraordinary persuasions that mobilise us to act with unequivocal certainty. 
~ K.Weight

Just remember, 
you will always be my baby. 
No matter how big you get or how far you roam. 
I want you to know that wherever you go in life, 
I will always be there for you. 
Even if you do go to the other side of the world 
and travel to the ends of the earth. 
I am only a phone call away. 
No matter the reason
or the time of day,
remember to call and say hey!
I carry you in my heart always
and hold my memories of you near.
On my mind in the morning
and the last thing I think about at night.
Remember that I will always be here.

A Collection of Proverbs - Flower of adversity


Adversity makes us stronger. It is in the midst of trial and pain that we have the chance to face our fears and find our faith. Faith makes us dig deep.


'A bend in the road is not the end of the road ... unless you fail to make the turn.'  ~ Author Unknown

Share the places you have been, the things you have seen, the moments that captured your heart and soul.

A mother's love


A mothers love is gracious, kind, overflowing and limitless.
It knows no bounds, even amidst the angst and trial of everyday schedules, boundary setting and life's highs and lows it looks for the good in those impish grins and mischievous souls.

We find untapped potential in the barest of landscapes.
We can see the end before it has even begun.
Suddenly the horizon is clearer than once thought possible.
The stars not so hard to reach for
and dreams within our grasp.

We pick up those small bundles when they stumble and fall.
Their pain is our pain, we feel it to the core.
It is carried like a badge across our hearts.
We who offer an uncompromising love like a high flying kite,
are the bridge of hope across a gorge of doubt 
and endless insecurities.

We long to see our children reach their full potential 
and see the best in them, even when others don't.
We nurture fledgling self esteems ... 
we cultivate, encourage and protect always.
Every day we begin anew 
and pull out new reserves, new strength and new grace.

We can't help it ... we didn't know its pull before, 
before the days of a babe in arms. 
But we know it now,
this great big life force pulsing through our veins.
This wondrous and sacred thing!

Life like we once knew it has ceased to exist. 
Our hearts melt in ways never before conceived.
We have been changed forever ...
in unimaginable ways.
It is who we are now 
and what we will always be!

Spring clean

Yay for spring! 



Time for a spring clean,
so this little blog of mine has undergone 
its own little make over.
Something fresh and ... well, 
different was needed.
And I just loved this quaint
 postage stamp theme.

Don't forget to link up 
with our 'Living inspired' 
community here.
