Surrender

By Toni O’Keeffe

Surrender the toxic objects, people, noise, behaviours and attitudes that block your path and call you into battle.

There’s no need to fight the things that cause you pain. Thank them for the lessons, then let them and the darkness they brought you go.

Not every battle is meant to be fought, some are meant to push you on to a new path.
Your greatest victories will be realized in the battles you do not fight.

You deserve better days and joyful moments met with softer, kinder hearts and light in your life.

Put down your sword and let yourself heal. Surrender.

Stop making so much noise

By Toni O’Keeffe

We’re all so busy making noise we can’t hear the sage whispers of truth flowing from our whimsy, tired souls.

We need PEACE, We need PAUSE, We need QUIET.

When we’re busy being loud, spewing anger, hating, judging, mocking or insulting others for who they are or how they live their lives, we’re really reflecting our own fears, low self-esteem, ignorance and insecurities back into the world.

We need to be at peace with ourselves before we can be at peace with the rest of the world. Hate, anger, jealousy, greed, or the desire to control or change others is a reflection of what’s broken inside each of us.

At the heart of every human being, is a soul wanting to live peacefully, wanting to love and be loved. At our very core that’s who we are.
That’s who YOU really are.

If we want to fix our shattered little world, we have to stop making so much noise. We have to stop asking others to change. Individually, WE have to change. We have to change the way we look at ourselves and how we accept each other.

This little shit storm we have going on across the planet, is ridiculous and can be fixed. We’ve all been given a huge time out to go back into our corners and look inward. We’re wasting the opportunity.

If we don’t learn the lessons from this period in our history, I believe the next wave of this global “punch-to-the-gut” will be more painful than anything we’ve ever felt before. It might be a full-blown knock out.

Our souls know how to get along. Their trying to tell us to take care of one another, to be kind, loving and compassionate, all we need is the will. The problem is, we’re not all listening.

So let’s all stop making so much noise and listen to what the universe and our soul are telling us.

Really, let’s all shut the “F” up, close our eyes, inhale peace, exhale gratitude and start listening. I say that with a heart filled with love for every single one of you,
Love Toni

It’s time to get out of the mud.

By Toni O’Keeffe

Hey humanity,
We’ve been in the mud long enough,
It’s time to be brave,
To find the courage to do what’s right,
To fix what we’ve collectively broken,
It’s time for each of us to do our part,
It’s time to play nice,
It’s time to grow-up.

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 ~🌹❤️

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💕
