universe sends us what we are readyfor.jpg

If we believe that G-d is in control and hears our prayers and that the Universe, at His Will, sends us what we need to hear, then my serendipitous find must be the message that I need to hear.

Clarity is always hard for me.  I think all the time – consider, rationalize, absorb, observe, process, and feel.  As an empath, if you are one, you absorb others’ pain and emotions and must try to block such strong feelings from overwhelming an already sensitive soul.

While cleaning thoroughly, I found an envelope with my first name on it.  I knew it by heart – it was my mother’s handwriting.

Her words were meaningful and in this lonely, confusing world of mixed messages and unrealized potential or opportunities, it was helpful to have a shoulder to lean upon and know that someone cared so much about me.

This was written 15 years ago.  That was a whirlwind time to be sure.  We had just experienced a year of major household moves, change of schools and job, major medical concerns and surgeries, life changing concerns for our children…….

We rack up life experiences, memories, and battle scars.  We carry burdens or dings to the heart and spirit, but we keep rising.  Each day, we begin again, and try to do the best that we can. Some days, we want to stay in bed, and that is OK too.  Restore, Recharge, Reveal, Re-examine, Review – whatever brings you peace and comfort has value.

I hope that this will bring you comfort as well.

If no one else tells you that you are important, if you are greeted by dull eyes and quiet stares, if you seek to improve yourself without outside validation, if you choose to create the best for others while they may not give it in return, you are indeed that one person who makes a difference towards change that matters in the world.

Sometimes we let a bad situation fester, creating a slippery slope that benefits no one.  Neither the one who fails through laziness, or “wins” by dispiriting others around them, nor the overall morale is improved.  The longer such a situation drains the spirit of an environment, the more it poisons those who would seek to improve or who have given up hope of such positive change.

How easy, and how sad, it is to kill the priceless qualities of motivation and loyalty.  Respect can be earned and embraced when shared equally.

how to master anything at any age         Putting one foot in front of the other is still at your own pace.  While no one else may recognize the changes you are making in your attitude, care, and attention, it doesn’t matter.  The validation that comes from within has to be the strongest in your life to keep moving forward. 

Waiting for apologies and recognition is a long end game.  While truth, integrity, and justice should be first and foremost, and I advocate for both most strenuously, there are those who withhold their praise or regard when you need it most.

Engaging efforts to change yourself for the better, in any number of ways, is always beneficial.  Determining to find something positive in challenging or difficult times is an act of mental strength.  Continuing to do so becomes a habit that is most supportive to your health and wellbeing.  Wherever your future takes you, developing confidence and self assurance is priceless.
