Hematite (Root): Our world has become so complex, it is hard to find time to take a deep breath, much less actually relax and let go of
As much as it hurts to say this, I am realizing it is time to let go of some that I thought we would be friends for life. We have grown apart and doesn't seem like we are ever going to find the time to catch up or keep up with each other.. I wish you and your families the best. You were always such a great friend, moving was a hard decision but one I am glad I made.
I speak of love that comes to mind: The moon is faithful, although blind; She moves in thought she cannot speak. Perfect care has made her bleak. I never dreamed the sea so deep, The earth so dark; so long my sleep, I have become another child. I wake to see the world go wild. - "An Eastern Ballad" by Allen Ginsberg #literarytattoo
Worrying...Who isn't guilty of it? We worry about the future, our jobs, our children, our health, the world, and so much more. But, really, does worrying do anything to help any of those things? Corrie Ten Boom, the author of this beautiful quote, has given us a reminder today about the true value (or lack thereof) of worry. So, let's not 'worry' so much, and instead take action to try to change the things we can and accept the things we cannot. Have a truly wonderful Friday, Glit-Z Family!
The closer you walk with God... it changes everything. There will be times you get angry at God, especially when your illness seems to destroy your plans, your dreams. But try your hardest to run toward God--not away from Him. It will make the fear and the anger last so much less time and let you get on with the real plans God has for your life.
Do it yourself
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets and unfulfilled dreams. There's too much uncertainty, cruelty and heartlessness. Take the time to slow the world down. Take the opportunity to smile and let someone know they make a difference. Don't be afraid to tell someone what they mean, what they bring to your life and more importantly, don't hestitate to love selflessly, without limits and believe that everything happens for a reason. Today might not be perfect, tomorrow might be another challenge, but you survived yesterday and gained experience. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, embrace it. Have faith that you've done enough and touched enough people that everything will work out. Nobody said that it would be easy, but through defeat, experience and triumph, you will find out who you are and it will all be worth it.
