Making it matter

Saw this the other day… I don’t know who originally wrote it but it’s brilliant

”Every minute someone leaves this world behind.
We are all in “the line” without knowing it.
We never know how many people are before us.
We can not move to the back of the line.
We can not step out of the line.
We can not avoid the line.

So while we wait in line –

Make moments count.
Make priorities.
Make the time.
Make your gifts known.
Make a nobody feel like a somebody.
Make your voice heard.
Make the small things big.
Make someone smile.
Make the change.
Make love.
Make up.
Make peace.
Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
Make sure to have no regrets.
Make sure you are ready.”

Path of the Gentle

I love the power of these words.

So profoundly inspiring that I had to share.

“I choose gentleness…
Nothing is won by force.
I choose to be gentle.
If I raise my voice may it be only in praise.
If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer.
If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.”

Max Lucado

Truly beautiful and I deeply appreciate the profound strength of gentleness.

Gentleness is strength of the being

Rendered with softness

It is the power of compassion

That cares to bring the truth

Correcting the tone with care

So that it is well received.

Gentle are bravehearts

Without violence.

A gentle soul intends in goodwill.

Gentleness is a way of life

The path of the gentle

May not be easy

Being gentle is a choice you make.

On the brink and beyond

autumn close up color daylight

Stepping beyond the comfort zone

Is a dare to trust the given chance

A step is all it takes to get on

As the soul readies for a spirited dance

Knowing nothing that is beyond this now.

A blind conviction

To reach the unknown and how

Is a story of guts and gumption

The moment is all there is at hand

To test the strength at bay

And explore far away land

Flowing along with a heart that shows the way.

All this life is a test of will

To transcend the levels known

As you climb the mountain and hill

Being in touch with natures own…

Life may be a challenge at work and play

Do love this life to connect with care

Every moment is given in every night and day

To live in this now and heart fully share…

Your life is a pattern of living

That you choose on your own

So rise to the unique moments

Sharing the joys you have known.

Bravehearts

Life is beautiful and yet challenging in itself!

We define our life

In how we respond to life.

In moments of merriment to melancholy.

The changes bring along the challenges.

And in it is the wisdom of the now.

To remember the interdependence

And know we are not alone!

To know life is simpler in the letting go!

Many deep-rooted issues that we choose to bury within manifest themselves in time as diseases of the mind and body.

We are better off in the sharing…

When things are too tough to handle

There is no point in holding it all.

The remedy is never in suppression.

But our world is happier wearing masks

In its facades the truth submerges

Only to rise like a Phoenix

Unexpectedly at the most inopportune of times.

Time to accept our vulnerabilities,

And find the strength from it.

Commend a share from the heart.

Support and appreciate their efforts.

Build a sense of community to help

For the truth is we are all in it together.

The healing is in the sharing
In the very ability to share
The first step of healing begins
For often in brushing under the carpet
The debris gets collected in time
And manifests grief in unexpected ways…
In the very vulnerability of life
Is the strength of living.

Kudos to ‘Brave-hearts’ for sharing their stories.
For it can inspire hope to someone somewhere…
Who needs to know, all is well in life and living
And hope is here to stay!

Every life is best lived by itself!

Sometimes comments on a post germinate a seed of creativity.

A compliment in appreciation of a life lived in dare and adventure on a fellow writer’s post… evoked a reply from him that reflected many sentiments in a sentence … that he would never wish to advise another to live so! And yet is proud of the journey that was, is and will be!

Sharing my reflections to it…

Every Life is unique
And has all the potential to be a masterpiece.
All is in the choices one makes!

Speaking of a life lived on the edges
Or a life safely sailed in smooth waters
Never reaching the rapids
Both have a reason and purpose to be
For as the purpose reveals itself in time.

The life in question will have answers to itself
Why it was the way it chose
Why it lived a life
Of dare or in safety?

And it will know
It has served its purpose
In simplest of ways
Or charted new ways for others
In adventure or sacrifices
All is a play of life
Asserting itself over and over again.

All said and done
I believe every life is best lived
By the spirit and soul that is given the life!
For it is meant to have
all the wherewithal of existence.

Every life is best lived by itself
So while we can appreciate
The adventure of lifes moment
No life should be wished
or advised for another
As each is meant to be!

And yet through it all
in hope for a better world…
It matters to be seen
Whether the given life
Is simply existing or living the moments!
But then
That is in the power of choices we make!
