We Win Some…

We win some…we lose some. Who hasn’t? It keeps us humble, it keeps us real. We become more relatable. Hit rewind for a bit, relisten, and reflect. It can take a few hours, days or weeks. As long as you don’t forget to hit the restart button. So keep going. Bring your best, your brilliance, and the blessings unique to you. Share them all! You’re making a positive difference in someone else’s day, I’m certain.

You’re going to cry. But you’re going to laugh a whole lot more! Pick up your bootstraps. Carry your backpack, and carry on my friend.

Keep planting your seeds, and watering them all. Ensure that they receive a daily dose of “sunlight.” Keep your love growing, and glowing!

Have a magnificent week everyone,

Sandra

To Listen

To Listen. To listen is a beautiful thing…

Listen, not to reply, but to understand.

Listen, not to criticize, but to care.

Listen, not to judge, but to love.

By doing so, our relationships may transform from ordinary into extraordinary!

Have a great day everyone,

Sandra

To Build…

To Build anything worth having in life must be built over time, with great pride, investment of time, love and respect. Whether it’s a home, a car, a friendship, marriage partner, etc, it’s going to take time. Although we live in a society of, “I want it now” and Drive-thru everything, how wonderful is it to slowly, carefully, and lovingly create a work of art? Relationships that are long lasting and special are truly what life is about, isn’t it? How meaningful is life without people, experiences and work we love? In our everyday journeys, we need to take notice of how beautiful life can be. Take your time, relish in it all, and keep building. Block by block, brick by brick. Let it unfold into the masterpieces you wish to create.

Have a joyous week!
Sandra

A Small Gesture

A small gesture. It’s often the smallest gesture that makes the biggest impact. It was a bit of a frazzled start to the day. Grabbing a coffee through the “Drive thru” sounded like a good idea. I reached the window, the cashier smiled and said, “No worries, the driver ahead of you paid for your order today.” It was a small $4.00 order, but the sensation that I had was priceless. In the midst of life’s hurdles, both small and large…remember, there is always goodness. Always good people, with good intentions. There are those who truly strive to make the world a better place. Please keep your faith, life is forever changing. Count on better days to carry you through!

Just a little bit of sharing today, have an Amazing weekend! Sandra

Above All

Above all. As Shakespeare so eloquently said, “To thine own self be true, and it must follow. as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” It is true wisdom. When we know ourselves, our likes, dislikes and preferences, we ultimately make better choices. Our passions, our interests and loves, they are inherently unique. They cannot be duplicated or disguised. It’s when we neglect our inner messages, and our ability to tap into our uniqueness, our originality, that we stumble, fumble and get a bit lost. Veer off course. No flashlight, compass or map to get moving again. And by the way, that’s okay. It’s part of life for us all. Yes, we’re all going to get sidetracked, rerouted, and a bit off the beat and path. Just turn around, and again, hit “play” all over again.

As we start our days, live with intention. Know what resonates within your mind and spirit. Ask yourself questions. But in your heart, know who you are and what you want to experience on this earth.

Start today. If you don’t, don’t worry, there are plenty of people out there who may try to decide for you.

Have a beautiful night,

Sandra

A Natural Progression

A natural progression. An evolution. We are continuously growing, learning, and changing. It’s an evolutionary process. The speed and rate of the metamorphosis varies among us all. We are unfolding, transforming, and living more fresh, and unencumbered days. It’s an intricate process, sometimes woven so perfectly, with the ideal blend of fabrics. Sometimes not, it’s a bit more complex, and the weave is slightly tangled and mismatched.

Keep going and growing, with the hopes of reaching your greatest creations, blends, and states of bliss. New levels of awareness are reached, and states of peace. There’s no attachment, no holds, not on anyone, anywhere. Our unique design will always have its place and purpose in this world. It may not be created effortlessly at first, maybe some trials are needed along the way, to create a better version. Whether we realize it or not, we are always influencing, and affecting someone, somewhere, positively or not.

We have our days when we may stumble a bit, slip and fall. Then there’s another, we get back up, keep walking, and begin the maturation and evolutionary process all over again. As many of us know, this is an everyday “work out.” Not a one time agreement, but a lifetime of them with yourself and others. So keep on going. Keep on evolving, and weaving those fabrics as beautifully as you can. Undo the tangles, stitch by stitch. It’s okay. Today is here, and how wonderful is it that we are here to live, create, and love again?!

Have a beautiful week everybody, Sandra

Our Minds

Our minds. As the sun sets each day, we are a collection of our thoughts, feelings and experiences. Similar to a whiteboard, smart board, or chalkboard, depending on your generation. Our minds are filled, covered and crowded with thoughts. Becoming jumbled, and rather confusing some days. They can truly weigh us down, or set us free. It’s always our decision. No, not easy. Treat it similarly to a whiteboard. Grab the erasers at the end of each day and clear it up as best you can.

Maintain and contain what was best, let go of the rest. The sun will rise again, and we’ll begin anew. We’re blessed to have the chance again. New learning, loving, and new lesson plans. Meet and greet your new day with pure expectations of beauty, clarity and goodness.

Have a wonderful weekend, Sandra

Set Sail…

You’ve set sail. The forecast is in, choppy waters may be ahead. Have you changed your mind now, or do you continue to embark on your new adventure? Inevitably, as we’re sailing through life, we’re bound to experience some unsettled waters. But what we all can be certain about is that at some point, the choppiness will subside. Calm waters will soon arrive. Yes, it’s a bit uncomfortable, isn’t it? Ensure you have some supplies, and some reliable, upstanding people by your side. Continue to prevail. Sail ahead.

Because after the calmness, you’ll be approaching fertile land. It’s quite beautiful. The richness of the landscape, the people, and the vegetation too.

Ahhh, aren’t you pleased you didn’t turn around and give up? Me too! Congratulations, you are worthy of living well, living fulfilled, free, and filled with joy. Hope to see you here soon!

Have a lovely journey, Sandra

Turning points

Turning points in our lives. We all reach breakthrough moments, or “Destiny Points.”

It’s a time of change, usually brought on by us or others, or life itself. We continue to grow, forge ahead, and gain wisdom through our trials. Moments of fear exist in all of us. It’s in our human fabric. None of us are exempt from it. Can you feel moments of fear? Asking yourself, “What’s it going to be like?” Can someone out there please provide a guarantee?

It’s how we travel through it that determines the quality of our lives. Weed your mind from worry, and weights that bring in weakness.  Carry your courage closely. Lift your head, and continue taking your steps. Sometimes it’s not easy to do.  Let go of all the “let downs.”

Life truly is on your side. You’ve reached a pinnacle point. Reach for pieces of unbridled joy in your heart, reach far and wide. Open up to greater possibilities. It’s your new day. Hold  onto it. Live it. Love it! Life will be okay, perfectly orchestrated in your favor.

Better days are coming.

Have a beautiful week, Sandra
