What if today…

What if today…

By Toni O’Keeffe

… you forgave everyone that ever caused you pain?

… you forgave yourself for the mistakes “you think” you’ve made, and realized none of it was a mistake?

…you decided to be grateful for everything, even the painful parts of your life?

…you left fear behind?

…you got rid of everything (the stuff, the beliefs, the behaviour, the judgement, the people) that are toxic and weigh you down?

…you decided to be kind?

…you unleashed your creativity?

…you decided you were happy?

…you started to smile at strangers and they smiled back?

…you started taking care of your mind, body and soul because you realized you are worthy of love and self care?

…you decided to surrender and be YOUR best and authentic self~ not the self others expect you to be?

…you stepped out of your own darkness and into YOUR light?

… you looked in the mirror and said “thank you for getting us this far, I love you~ it’s time to live our best life.”

You have the power to hit the reset button on your life at any time.

You are only one decision away from leaving the past, the pain, the regrets and the excuses behind.

What if today was that day and you shone so bright that the warmth of your glow created a ripple of light that illuminated the way for others?

Think about it, what if today…….

Every moment matters

By Toni O’Keeffe

Every moment matters.
With every decision you make, you’re paving the path that all your memories will be built upon.
You’re choosing to move towards your dreams or away from them.
You’re choosing to heal or suffer.
You’re choosing to seize an opportunity or let it pass.
You’re choosing to speak your truth or fall silent.
You’re choosing kindness or cruelty.
You’re choose tolerance or judgement.
Your memories will last longer than the moments that created them.
Choose your moments wisely.

Calm

By Toni O’Keeffe

Our lives are a blend of sunshine filled days,
wild chaotic storms, and days that provide us with a bit of both.
No matter how dark the day has been,
the sun stills comes up,
the stars still shine,
the ocean tides continue to roll in and out and,
the wind continues to move the heaviest of clouds to reveal blue skies.
There is calm before every storm,
There will be calm after every storm,
Life carries on after every storm,
and so shall you❤️.

One Day

By Toni O’Keeffe

One day you’ll wake up,
look at your reflection
and say;
“I set you free,
from all of it,
everything,
everyone,
and every emotion
that has ever hurt you,
let you down,
caged you in,
or caused you pain.
Now your free,
really free,
to live your magic
and soar”

All you have to do,
Is choose the day.

Lullaby for a weary world 💕

By Toni O’Keeffe

Surrender to the quiet
you’ve been gifted,
and rest your
beautiful heart.
Slow your breath,
close your weary eyes,
and paint your dreams
with indigo skies
draped in serene light.
Hush sweet soul, hush.
Something brand new
will be waiting
to greet you
in the dawn.
Toni O’K ~🌹❤️

This is your wake up call

By Toni O’Keeffe

This is your wake up call

The alarm bell is shrieking.
Don’t ignore it.
DO NOT hit the sleep mode button.
We’ve been given the opportunity
to wake up.
To wipe the sand from our eyes,
to face our authentic selves
and face the lies and the lives
we’ve been living.
We’ve been given the chance
to unplug from everything and
everyone that programs and controls us.
To stop the clock and step out of the race.
To question how we live.
To realign our minds, body’s
and spirits and reset the future.
This is no random event.
It’s an opportunity to wake up;
~ to what matters
~ to what you love and what you tolerate.
~ to who you want to be and how you want to live your life.
We’ve been given the opportunity to pause, to be present, to let go of what’s old and reset the future.
You, me, all of us will never get an opportunity like this again.
This is our wake up call.
Answer the call.
Toni O’K~ 🌹❤️

Surrender

By Toni O’Keeffe

Now is the time to exhale, to unpack everything and surrender to something new.
To sail into a life of grace guided by the things that sing from your heart and are craved by your soul.
It’s time to anchor your dreams to the warmth of the harbour waiting to welcome you home.
Toni O’K~🌹❤️

One Day

If YOU are still waiting for your “One Day”, this is for you❤️
I hope one day, everything appears different, brighter and better for you.
That the gentle whisper of your own voice greets you with love, replacing the harsh voice of criticism that has been by your side for too long.
That you are guided by your deepest wisdom and an inner peace that allows you to let your walls down and let your beautiful light shine.
Love Toni💕

I had to let go

By Toni O’Keeffe

I had to let go of what I thought my life should be and embrace the life I got.
When I finally surrendered to the universe and let it take me where I NEEDED to go, my life became a more peaceful and beautiful place.
And I’m soooooooooooo grateful. For all of it.
Even the hard parts.

Keep your heart open to receiving things you never imagined were meant for you and you might be surprised at what (or who) shows up.

In Stillness

By Toni O’Keeffe

For most of my life there has been a steady flow of thoughts, ideas and words that trickle through my mind and pour into a well of inspiration that fuels me.
These past several weeks, the well has run dry.
Like the rest of the world my mind has become still.
I’m learning to embrace the stillness.
It’s in stillness beneath the earth and below calm waters that beautiful things are planted and take root.
It’s in stillness that our bodies, minds and souls are renewed.
It’s in stillness that the planet will heal.
Welcome the stillness, the solitary confinement, the peacefulness and calm.
Enjoy it knowing when we emerge beautiful things will bloom in us and in the world.
Until then, I will be still ~

Toni O’K~🌹❤️
