Well Hello There Life!

imageI realize that as I do all these things to figure myself out…

Life is passing me by.

I operate under the belief that I have all the time in the world…

When in truth that is the lie.

It’s an excuse to hide.

I think I’m just making myself better, by analyzing my behavior and reviewing my history…

Yet without balance I am no longer really living.

There is no better version of me…

I’m just me, complete already.

As I wait and strive for perfection, the perfect job, perfect home, perfect romance…

The truth is that “perfect” only exists in my mind, the same mind that will never admit perfection even if perfection were to arrive.

Because the mind will only then want something else, something better.

The solution…

Is to go live an incredibly full and messy life, allowing it to be all what life is.

What better time than in “the now”?

Seize Every Moment

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it.”

Wayne Dyer

Positivity and Living

What happens when you focus on retraining yourself to think positive, stay present, stay in gratitude, bring light to all situations, serve your creator and love without conditions?

Life opens up in ways unimaginable.

Yes it takes practice, especially when we have lived our lives contrary to this way of life.

We never get perfect.

However, I’ve experienced and continue to experience the dramatic turn life takes when constantly practicing this way of life.

Every single area of my life has gotten better.

Most importantly I have been given inner peace, love, connection, companionship, and more ways to serve the planet and the people on it.

It’s been possible by holding on during the tough times and riding it like the wind when it’s great.

God Either Is Or Isn’t

“God is everything or else He is nothing. God either is or He isn’t.”
Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

I could read something 1000 times but until I was ready to really hear it, I just couldn’t fully grasp what it meant. Years of seeking to find answers, to find truth, to find the path to be what my soul always knew I was, has led to me the understanding I hold today for what this truly means.

My soul yearned to know it’s potential but I was driven by ego.

I used to wonder why there was a need for darkness, for sadness, for pain and deny that there was a purpose for it’s existence. Now I understand that we cannot know and experience the beauty and power of the light we are without the existence of everything we’re not.

We have to experience the opposite of what we are to know who we want to be.

God is the darkness and the light, the tragedy and the joy, the hope and the suffering. God is just as much you and I, as he is each grain of sand on the beach.

God is in every moment, song, sign on the street, word or whisper spoken.

God is in the tears spilling from our eyes, the laughter, the pain, the joy and even the heartache.

To deny any of this would be to deny the existence of God.

To shelter ourselves from people, relationships, connection, trust and love, of our own will, is to shelter ourselves from God.

Today I understand that I must live, really live, to ever become what my soul yearns to become.

That is what God wants for me.

That is what God wants for you too.

Sky Full Of Stars

I watch you from across the room

The way you walk

The way you smile

How you interact with others

How intently you listen

The determination in the way you are of service to others

How much you authentically care about other humans

The humility you exude

It’s no coincidence that are stories are parallel

That our paths have crossed

You know what it’s like to have this thing called sobriety and then loose it all… again

And to never want to go back there

So I watch you push on towards the light with passion

Then you look over my way and smile at me

It tells me everything I need to know

That you are amazing
