Life: Live It

Image

When the rain falls, don’t hide yourself away

Learn how to dance your way through the storms

And when the sun is shining brightly upon you

Don’t take a single minute of that for granted

 

Life is a series of ups and downs

A crazy roller coaster ride of emotions

There are lessons to learn

And memories to be made

 

Your heart will be broken

And you might break a few yourself

You’ll know loss and pain

Disappointment and strife visits us all

 

And while there are times it seems easier to give up

In the end, it’s always worth it to find your way through

Even though it may not seem that way at the time

The dark times don’t last forever

 

Though neither do the good ones

So when they’re upon you

Remember to appreciate each moment

Cherish every laugh, smile, kind word, and embrace

 

Love boldly with every fiber of your soul

Don’t let loss or fear of rejection hold you back

Feel every single emotion unashamedly 

Embrace change, take risks, and always be true to yourself

 

We were born to be an individual work of art

Original, truly one of a kind

Don’t blend in just to gain acceptance 

Or even just to go unnoticed

 

Life isn’t always easy

And we don’t always understand why

Or how things happen the way that they do

But it’s all worth it in the end

 

Having faced lots of loss and pain myself

I have come to realize that life is short

Quite fleeting and fickle

Taking us from this world many times without notice

 

And I have decided that I want my life to mean something

For however long I am to walk this earth

I want to have touched people’s hearts

To love those around me with all I have each day

 

For without love, what is there really?

I know that is why I am here

To be a friend, to help, to give, to heal

That is what I will leave behind, a great legacy of love

 

(And I encourage you to do the same.)

Celebrate Life Now

Celebrate Life

I was listening to K-Love yesterday and a listener called in and told them about how they celebrated the life of someone they love BEFORE they died. The lady that called in talked to us about her mother who had terminal cancer and knew she didn’t have long. She’d heard the idea on K-Love and decided it was something that she wanted to do for her mother. So, she planned out the event to take place on her mother’s birthday. She wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but she knew it was something she wanted to do, no matter how many people showed up. They expected maybe 15 people to show up, but 65 people attended and it was such an amazing and positive experience for everyone. Her mother was able to be surrounded by people who loved her, who celebrated her life and all she’d done. Since then, her mother did pass away and I can imagine it’s been hard for her and her family. But, she said that doing this for her mother is something she’s so glad she did. Her mother got to know just how important she was, how much she was loved while she was still here.

I really liked hearing that story, moved me quite a bit. I know there are many times when doing something like this isn’t possible, but then, who says we should wait till someone we love is dying to celebrate their life? I try throughout my life to show those I love how much I appreciate, respect, and love them. Though, when someone we know is dying, I think it especially a good idea to throw a celebration of their life. Why not give them something to remember in the days they have left that will touch their heart? Life is precious and all too fleeting. We should make the most of it and part of that is showing those we adore how much they mean to us, how important they are. I wanted to share this story and idea with all of you. Perhaps even one of you will be touched by this, perhaps even one of you will take something from it and then share your own story of celebration, life, and love with others so that your story will then inspire others to do the same. All it takes is one person and the willingness to share their story to ignite the flame.

Today Is Here

Love_heart

Love those you have in your life right now because we’re never promised a tomorrow. Each day we’re given is a blessing, even the ones that don’t feel like one. Life is short, especially when one considers the scope of eternity. Even if one lives to be 100 years old, that time is but a blink of an eye in forever’s mind. I can’t tell any of you to never worry, to never be upset, to never get angry, to never feel pain, or to never be sad because it’s all a part of life. But I can say this, also do your best to give as well as take, show kindness, feel hope, be a friend, smile, laugh, know joy, and to both feel and give love. Today is here and it’s yours to mold, use your time wisely. ❤

A Plea For Empathy From An Empathetic Heart

Empathy
How can I explain with mere words
The way that my thoughts and emotions work?
When someone I love is hurting, I hurt too
As if their heartaches and burdens were my own

Many times the empathy I feel allows me to help
So there are times when this serves as a blessing
By putting myself through the pain and stress
I can often find ways to help them hurt less

To be able to be there for those I love means a great deal to me
I wish that there was a way for me to make you all see
Though I feel as if most haven’t even begun to discover
Just how deep my love, empathy, and compassion flows

There are times when the stress upon my shoulders crushes me
From the inside out, I begin to wear down
Sometimes people take advantage of my good heart
And their needs begin to tear me apart

It’s not always of malicious intent
From others that has my spirit bent
In fact, often times many are oblivious
To the state of exhaustion I’m in

Now and then, I find that I need to take a step back
To renew the mental and emotional strength I lack
As badly as I feel to tell a loved one no
Sometimes it just needs to be done

Often, I am left with an ache of wanting to give and do more
Giving comfort, support, and love is something I live for
And I feel as if I was put here to do just that
But if I ignore my own needs for too long, I become a mess

I ask that you understand when I need to take some time for myself
That you won’t think I’ve become rude, crass, and uncaring
There are just times when I have my own needs to attend to
But know that my love for each of you will always be strong and true

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
