Make a fresh start

As you thrive in and through the rest of this week, a few points on the nature of new beginnings, big and small, on doors and on fresh starts.

“Our God is in the business of giving us a new beginning…one that will endure not by our own strength but by the power of the Holy Spirit.”-alyssajhoward.com

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”-Walt Disney

“Every moment is a fresh beginning.” – T. S. Eliot

“To greet a lovely morning, we must leave the night behind.”― Tarang Sinha

“Sometimes the best thing we can ask for is change, and a fresh start forces us to confront change head-on.”-Natalya Neidhart

You are good enough

Yes, you are good enough.

You are not;

your last job

your present career,

who hires or does not hire you for the job.

You are not measured by how much

finances you have or don’t have.

You are not the sum total of your bills.

You are not what the creditors or your credit score state.

You are not the totality of your social media posts.

You are good enough.

Your measure of what is good about you

is what you believe about yourself,

and by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

The outside world trappings

try to shape you into believing what the world system

deems as ‘good.’

But I am here to gently remind you that;

You are good enough.

Walk in that truth.

For although you are in this world,

you are not of this world (John 17:16)

You are a beautiful, infinite being,

made in the image and after the likeness

of the divine Creator,

who made the stars and set them in place. (Genesis 1:16-18)

“He looked at everything that he had made and declared it good.” (Genesis 1:30)

You are good enough for Him – that is ‘enough’.

Blessings and peace to you. Good evening, good night and good morning where ever you are.💓

You reflecting on You

This idea I present for your consideration today, if you so choose, is about taking time to ground yourself in the present.

You reflecting on you; the present you – the today you. The past you is gone.

It may be something as seemingly simple as preparing your favorite cup of tea or coffee. I say seemingly simple because the process of mindfully and calmly making your favorite warm beverage may require calm grounded reflection with action.

If you are in a calm state of mind, composed and aware of where you are in the present as you prepare it, oddly enough, your tea or coffee tastes better.

You may have noticed this yourself, perhaps. Your morning coffee, as you rush out the door and take a sip while rushing to the car, or to other means of transport, tastes different than the one you leisurely prepared to enjoy while restfully seated at home or elsewhere.

The ingredients are the same, your preparation method is the same, so what is the difference in the taste? Answer: You and your sense of grounding yourself in the present, calmly and peacefully as you obtained, prepared and enjoyed it.

“It is only by grounding our awareness in the living sensation of our bodies that the ‘I Am,’ our real presence, can awaken.”— G.I. Gurdjieff

One of the great exercises you can do is to stop and acknowledge the colors around you … If you’re constantly distracting yourself, then you’re never really experiencing anything fully. It can cause you to feel like you have no center, like nothing is grounding you. – Sheryl Crow

“When you really pay attention, everything is your teacher.”~ Ezra Bayda

Have a great day in the details. Life can be richer than we think if we just pay attention. Cheers. Sending you good vibes and many attentive acts of living.❤️

and smiling-
I thought this was a feature film gig?”

What’s up Sarah?” they asked.
“Okay” she said,
“It’s an ad for the new speech emoji’s-
The feature film thing didn’t pan out”

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains…”

“I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains:
From whence shall my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” – Psalm 121: 1-2

All photos are the same mountain location (Yosemite National Park) at different seasons.

“Mountains, according to the angle of view, the season, the time of day, the beholder’s frame of mind, or any one thing, can effectively change their appearance. Thus, it is essential to recognize that we can never know more than one side, one small aspect of a mountain.”― Haruki Murakami

“The secret of the mountain is that the mountains simply exist, as I do myself: the mountains exist simply, which I do not. The mountains have no “meaning,” they are meaning; the mountains are.” – Peter Matthiessen

A temporary shift in your perspective

If you are pursuing the realm of personal forward movement – a new challenge, a new direction, this week – one suggestion for you, if you so choose.

If you are structuring the beginning stages of a departure from one door of your life to another, perhaps a temporary shift of perspective may assist?

Therefore, make some movement to get those creative juice flowing.

Go on a small trip (around the block even), go on a little journey (shopping, nature trail, trip by the sea, for example) and, change your scenery (change your screen saver, move one item around in your home, you don’t have to travel to Spain, or anything– I’m just saying).

All this to help your perspective to shift enough so that you make an important decision with as much clarity and ingenuity as possible.

Who knows– there may be a whole different way to accomplish part or all of what you want to do, which a temporary shift in perspective, may help bring to mind.

“You have the capability to change your life all with a simple shift in perspective.”- Demi Lovato

“Sometimes all it takes is a tiny shift of perspective to see something familiar in a totally new light.”- Dan Brown
