Sometimes you just have to float

We’re told to go out and chase our dreams.

We’re also told NOT to chase who or what we desire but to trust that the universe will provide.

So, which is it? Do you wait for your ship to come in? or, do you swim out to it?

I think the answer is, both.

Most of the time we have to trust our instinct and chase the things we desire or the goals we want to attain.

Then, there are times in life when we feel lost, weak, have a cluttered mind or a spirit that is not at peace. Its at these times that we have to surrender and trust that the universe will take over and guide us.

We are the pilots of our journey, but sometimes we need to flip the auto pilot switch and trust that we’re going to land where we’re supposed to.

We don’t wake up and think “gee, I have to pump my heart, or move the blood through my veins or breath air into my lungs,” we trust these things are going to happens – and, they do.

So, swim out to your ship. If you lose your way in the swell or the elements become too much to bear, lay back, float and trust that the current will carry you to where you’re meant to go.

WHATEVER YOU NEED TODAY “BE” THAT

WHATEVER YOU NEED TODAY

“BE” THAT

The thing you’re searching for?

Stop searching for it and BE it.

Give away the thing you seek.

If your searching for happiness, BE happy.

If your searching for love, BE loving.

If you seek abundance, be generous.

If you need comfort, be a comfort to someone who’s hurting,

If you seek kindness and compassion, be kind and compassionate.

If its meant for you, it’s in you to give.

The most unexpected treasures reveal themselves not when we’re looking, but when we’re BE’ing.

BE what you need

Today, the page is clean

Yesterday’s page may have been a disaster,

but today the page is blank,

It’s clean, its filled with possibilities.

You have the experience from all of your yesterdays to draw on.

Every single day we have the opportunity to;

be better,

to be more,

to be less,

to be whatever we want to be.

As some things end,

new things will begin.

Perhaps it’s time to write the end of this chapter,

turn the page and start a new one.

You’re holding the pen.

Go write yourself a beautiful life❤️

The sudden loss

“The sudden loss

of someone you love,

leaves a longing

that stabs your heart

and shatters your soul,

leaving an emptiness

where the presence of

their love once lived.

It is this great loss

and a need to fill

the emptiness, that

becomes the loudest

and most profound

calling to live.”

YOUR PERSPECTIVE is YOUR Super Power,

YOUR PERSPECTIVE is

YOUR Super Power,

When an obstacle blocks your path,

you can CHOOSE to view it as a disaster, an inconvenience, Or, an opportunity to pause, catch your breathe, clear your mind, reflect and grow.

Then, when you’re ready, choose a new path AND move on.

Every loss, every ending, every failure, every spiral to the bottom and all things that cause us pain, provide the opportunity to change perspective.

Once you chart your new path, leave behind whatever, whoever was blocking you or causing you pain.

Take a gratitude moment and give thanks that you survived “it” and are wiser because of it.

What’s blocking you? Is it really a disaster? or is it creating an opportunity to move on healthier, happier, lighter, wiser and with a new perspective.

Life, a delicate high-wire dance.

Life is a delicate high-wire dance between chances not taken and bold quests to risk it all.

We move between treading lightly through life and jumping ”all in” at warp speed.

Then, something happens, a loss, an illness, a disaster and everything, absolutely everything changes. We are shaken to our core. Everyone means so much more than they did before that “something” rattled us.

We assess our purpose, our value and wonder why any of this matters at all.

But it does matter and it shouldn’t take “something” to remind us to live fully every day.

Our time on this earthly journey is limited. Those that leave before us are a reminder that we are not permanent fixtures in any of this. It’s that impermanence that makes life a gift.

So don’t tippy-toe through life, afraid to fall, be bruised or hurt. You’re here to feel and to BE human. So, feel it all and BE the things you’ve dreamt of BEing Take each step believing that there is a net to catch you when you fall.

None of us are getting out of “this” alive.

Don’t die with your love, your words, your music, your art or your passion locked inside you. Leave it all out there, where it can be seen, be heard, be touched and be loved.

Sometimes, wisdom just shows up.

Sometimes, wisdom just shows up.

I don’t know how.

I don’t know why.

But I “know” that it’s arrived and it’s meant just for me.

It shows up for all of us.

You feel it in your gut, you hear it on the wind, and in rain drops as they tap against the window of your soul trying to get your attention.

It whispers to you in your dreams, appears in clouds as you gaze across the sky.

Sometimes this knowing arrives in the eyes of a complete stranger. It can feel as if this wisdom rode in on a lighten bolt to land at your front door. When actually, this deep sense of knowing surfaced from deep inside of you.

It often shows up during our greatest life storms or, when we’re completely still.

It’s an understanding, a deep sense of truth, an ah-ha moment when you just “know”.

This knowing is the sound of some”thing” calling you.

Listen to it.

Its a Soul thing.

Something amazing is waiting just beyond your pain.

Beneath the insecurities, self doubt, disappointment, fear, worry, heartache, sadness and below the thickness of your scars, an amazing and wise soul waits to guide you. Your soul holds the key to your healing and has the answers you seek.

Once you strip away the darkness of everything that’s holding you back, your light will shine and the path ahead will be clear.

Stop chasing, stop fighting, stop regretting, stop resisting.

Feel your pain, your loss, your grief, your confusion, your darkness, then let it go. These things are heavy and weight you down.

Surrender and trust that the flow of the universe has brought you on this journey for a reason. It’s time to move on. You will feel lighter, you will BE lighter once the shadows of your pain are gone.

Release everything that’s holding you back. When you do the universe will take you to wonderful people, adventures and places meant just for you.

Something amazing is waiting just beyond your pain.

TO’K~ 🌹❤️
