Releasing

Not every day is upbeat and some things CAN be positive, without being “feel goods”.

And some days are reflective.

In the reflecting, nostalgic…sometimes its about the missing pieces of what has brought me to the place I am.

Gratitude for the what has been given to me – yes -even joy, in the hollow places left after its gone.

Peace, ~me

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet,
regardless of time, place, or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will
never break
.
— An ancient Chinese belief

just remember love possesses nothing nor would it ever be possessed oh love is love sufficient unto love and you can figure out the rest  your children will not be your children they are the daughters and the son of a beginning they’ll come through your womb but not be coming from you they will be with you but do not belong to you you may give them your love but not your thoughts then they’ll arrive with their own hearts they’re the coming of angels this blessed season and then they’ll sing oh how God rests in reason
“… remember love possesses nothing, nor would it ever be possessed…your children will not be your children- they are the daughters and the sons of a beginning…they will be with you but do not belong to you…you may give them your love but not your thoughts…”  ~ Mraz, God Rest In Reason

Excerpt from Desiderata

…You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
