L is for Love Yourself

The demands of life are many, and all too often there is little time left for yourself at the end of the day. But as long as you have some time for yourself, it will be okay. Day to day is manageable. Sometimes there are extra demands, and even that’s okay. It’s to be expected – life happens. Although you know that it’s important to have time for yourself, you can put yourself “on hold” when you need to. The problem arises NOT when life throws you a curve ball.  The problem arises when life throws you a few major life curve balls that carry on for too long. When you can’t even do what you need to do, let alone what you want to do, the problems begin.  You know you’re here when it’s an understatement to say that “Life is too demanding” and it’s too easy to say, “I’m not having any fun”. But you carry on by prioritizing because you have to, and you know that it can’t go on like this forever. Then finally when the heaviness begins to lift, you realize that life now has a “new” normal. It’s a slow process “putting back the pieces”, and it does take time. But being “whole” will not happen until you take time out for yourself, for you can only put yourself “on hold” for so long. Rebuild yourself, for you will not be able to be there for others unless and until you are there for yourself.

THE IMPOSSIBLE – A POEM BY DARLENE WIGGERS

 

Anything is possible

You just have to believe

When everything lines up

It’s easy to achieve

 

Removing limitations

Adjusting expectations

Past, present, future

Is just an illusion of time

 

Forgiving and forgetting

Vulnerability with an open mind

Let loose and see where it takes you

Just give it a try

 

Positivity flows in the right direction

The plan includes unexpected purposes

Turning balanced changes into small miracles

The impossible CAN be in the future!

The Sequel – A Poem by Darlene Wiggers

Words unspoken

Thoughts that abound

Emotions are reeling

The healing that hurts

 

Once upon a time

Happily ever after

The sequel is ending

A new story begins

 

Pain and suffering

Humour that heals

The heart is aching

Searching for hope

 

Life is for living,

Laughing, loving, and forgiving

Not judging and regretting

But understanding and appreciating

It comes down to one simple thing: How bad do you want it?

Inspired by J is for Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it – DALAI LAMA -LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME AND MAKE IT A MASTERPIECE

There are many ways to define success, but this entry is not about that. For the purpose of this entry, I am thinking of success as something towards which you are working.

Sometimes when you work hard towards something, you may begin to wonder if it is really worth it after all? You are putting in so much time and as the saying goes: “a lot of blood, sweat, and tears”. But remember, no one said it was going to be easy. At this time, you need to dig deep and do some soul searching. You need to ask yourself, “Is this something I really want?” It is important that this is your goal and not someone else’s. After all, it is your life. If it is definitely not what you want, then stop reading right now. But if it is what you want, or even if you’re not sure, please read on. You can decide on this later. Maybe you’ll have an “aha moment”, and realize that it is what you want, after all.

You should try to visualize what things would look like if you achieved this goal. If you have doubts and are not happy with what you see, then paint a different picture:  see it in a positive light; see it as though things worked out. See yourself being confident in this role; see yourself being happy in this role. Now, keep that picture at the forefront of your mind, and don’t let go of it!

“The reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they have come.” As you work towards a goal, it’s okay to pause and reflect, even if you are so busy. Take a moment, and remember all the little successes that have brought you to this point. Yes, it was hard, but focus on the positive. It might be good to write down your successes and or talk to someone about them. Your successes are very real, and you are the one who did it! You made it happen! Don’t discount this – there is great value in what you have done so far! Give yourself a pat on the back! Take a moment to relish these little successes that have brought you to this point.

“Success is no accident. It’s hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love for what you are doing or learning to do.” “Success demands for sacrifices: Sacrifice of sleep, sacrifice of entertainment, sacrifice of comfort zone.” And

really “it comes down to one simple thing: how bad do you want it?” I know, you’re tired, and you don’t know if you can do this anymore, but you are loved and you have lots of support. Believe in yourself. You can do this! And sacrifice always comes before success, so you’re going to have to work for it. As it is said in microeconomics, there is an “opportunity cost”. You are going to have to give up something in order to get what you want.

You may not even like what you have to do now, but remember the shape of things to come will be different. And what you have to do may make you feel uncomfortable – but you are going to have to get out of your comfort zone to see this through. And you will grow, as a result: “Be willing to sacrifice comfort for growth.” This is the time to remind yourself of: “See the end result in a positive light; see it as though things worked out. See yourself being confident in this role; see yourself being happy in this role. Now, keep that picture at the forefront of your mind, and don’t let go of it.” In other words, “keep your eyes on the prize!”

In the meantime, “Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.” And remember, “in order to achieve your goals you must make sacrifices, commit daily, overcome challenges and work your plan. No one can do it for you. It is up to you.” But no matter what, “Never sacrifice these three things: your family, your heart, or your dignity.”

And when you achieve your goal, and you pause, reflect, and judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it, I hope you celebrate and say that it was worth it! The harder you work at something, the more you appreciate the result. This is similar to Newton’s Third Law: “Every action has an equal but opposite reaction.” And if you didn’t work that hard, it’s still a win! But what I mean is that you appreciate it more if you worked harder – it’s the equality of the exchange.

Right – A poem by Darlene Wiggers

 

Think, feel

Feel, think

Right, left

Left, right

 

Right is not wrong

But left is not right

Two become one

That is what’s right

 

Sense makes dollars

Emotions might

Two become one

That is what’s right

 

Save, spend

Keep, give

What makes sense?

What feels right?

 

Work to live

Live to work

Live it up

Live for life

 

One life to live

Or is there more?

Make it right

Make it right

 

What do you think?

What do you feel?

What will you do?

What will be right?

 

Life is hard

Life is light

Light is love

Love is light

 

 

Head, heart

Truth, dare

What will you do?

What will be right?

 

Sad, happy

Disease, health

Follow your heart

Your heart is what’s right

 

That is what’s right!

Right is what’s right!

Subtle Sensations

A poem by Darlene Wiggers

 

An assortment of attributes

Somewhat skeptical

A barrier, a boundary

A distinct divide

An uncertain uneasiness

Letting loose

Trying to trust

Peeking, peering

Basic breathing

Mindful meditations

Raising reflections

An activated awakening

Joining the journey

Very vulnerable

A collective calling

A distinct drive

Mysterious music

A signal, a sign

Suspecting, sensing

A sixth sense

Curious coincidences

A picture of perceptions

Uncommon, unfamiliar

Cautious clarity

Loosening the left-side

Initial introductions

A range of realms

Variegated violet

Prismatic pink

Invitational indigo

A calm cool current

A hint of heat

A sense of smoothness

Fuzzy, faint

A tiny tingle

A tittling twitch

A fleeting flutter

A tapping thump

Vibrant vibrations

Repetitive ripples

Trembling tremors

A crackling clearing

A taste of titanium

Dehydrated, dry

A touching of tresses

A rearrangement, a realignment

A wag of warmth

Heightened heat

A suggestive scent

A smoldering smoke

An earthy emergence

A primal perfume

A murky mustiness

A clammy crispness

A petite pull

A tad of tugging

A slight surge

Significant sensitivities

Pieces of the puzzle

Telepathic tendencies

A coming of clarity

Developing depth

Intriguing ideas

Realizing the realness

The clear “clairs”

Fluent familiarity

Increased intensities

Dreams that direct

Descriptive déjà vu

Visions that visit

Testing the truths

Knowing now

Rented relationships

Lease of life

Somber shifting shadows

Subtle soft silhouettes

Evolved energy

Surrendering the self

Developing discernment

Understanding unknowns

Strengthening symbols

Handling habits

Greatest of good

Systems of space

Transcending time

Elapsed endurances

Passages to the past

Deep, dense

Troublesome tightness

Eliciting interventions

Forgiving faults

Living and letting live

Receiving remediation

Mending memories

A withdrawing wall

A white wave

A luminous light

Connected courses

Electrical, exciting

Brilliant bridges

Gateway gazing

Angelic apparitions

Mesmerizing, mystical

The language of light

A relaxing rhythm

A surprising spark

Remarkable revelations

A fresh feeling

Absolute awareness

Peaceful playfulness

A soulful spirit

Welcomed whispers

An effervescent embrace

A kind caress

A velvet vitality

A wealth of wellness

An energized experience

A pleasing phenomenon

A marvelous miracle

A leading life-force

Priceless, powerful

Insightful, intuitive

Maintaining, mastering
