For you. And so much more. Take care and have a wonderful and bless day everyday.
Enlightened leadership is spiritual if we understand spirituality not as some kind of religious dogma or ideology but as the domain of awareness where we experience values like truth, goodness, beauty, love and compassion, and also intuition, creativity, insight and focused attention.
— Deepak Chopra
Above all, as you start every day with whatever ritual of life you practice, remember to always practice self-love, meditate, and say affirmations of what best fit your needs. There are so many ways to practice spirituality, and everyone does it in their own way.
What do you like to share on how you practice spirituality, and/or anything else related you would like to share?
Enjoy your day, lovelies! 🌹
There is something so magical and beautiful about holding a pen of any kind between your fingers and gliding it across paper forming words that were probably spoken once but though of countless times.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done this. It’s almost like exercising until I feel that cramp in my hand that I’ve been writing too much and should take a break. The simple act of gliding isn’t the problem. It’s the fact that my mind moves faster than my hand can’t keep up with. I love it still and occasionally still write by hand.
Before, just a couple of years ago, I had written six or more pages of letters that I wanted to say to each and every individual for whatever has happened between us. After I wrote the letters, I looked them over and burned them. It was a spiritual act of letting go and healing from the inside out. Though I felt better than I had previously, I still feel like I need to do more cleansing.
For today’s writing challenge, I am to write a letter to someone, whoever I chooses. The thing is, I don’t know who at the moment. So the following letter may be more general than personal as I been think about who to write a letter to all day long and now it is the next morning.
I want you to know that you are unique and worthy of being love. Times get difficult and you may find yourself feeling like you are just about water, but know that I am here for you. I am here to support you and be an ear to listen to you when you talk. I will simply do my best to be that friend for you. You have not only me, but a community of people who are here for you. You are never alone.
I may tell you that I have spent time looking for love and hoping that it will someday find me, but I will tell you that though that is over, and don’t be like me who have given up. Practice self-love and put yourself first. Don’t be so trusting and guard your heart. Do affirmations and meditation.
My friend, I can’t tell you how to live your life because we only get one, but I want you to know that if you don’t take your own life serious and do something with it, someone else will. And it may be something you don’t want. Live your dreams. Achieve those goals. Get out there and live! Because you don’t want to look at yourself in the mirror decades later and realize just how much your whole life have pass you by. Take time for yourself to do whatever it is you want to do. And be whoever you want to be. You are the captain of your ship. You are remarkable and so kind. One day before you know it, you will know the real reason why everything happened and why it did. I hope and pray that from this day and many days to come that you continue to be great. I know no one is perfect, but how caring and loving, and the determination and hard work you put into what you do, you will get to where you want to be, who you want to be, and where you want to be in life. Take care, and don’t give up.
Thank you for reading everyone. Have a bless day.
Stay tuned for Day 24.
Today’s #writing challenge is discussing your first love. It’s not something I plan on elaborating much on because I can’t recall having a first love. Infatuation and so-called doesn’t count. When I think about what or who could qualify as first love, a parent comes to mind. Someone who was there for you and sacrifice and tried their best to protect and take care of you, even when you gotten taken away by the State from them. A true story for me.
First love to me is writing and music. When I feeling down, when I’m feeling good, they are there helping, encouraging, uplifting, entertaining me. I would write and write some more about any and everything. I would sink deep into a book. One book became five, then fifteen, and twenty. When I want to escape the world, I would dive into another one by reading.
From Good Therapy website it mentioned: Love is a complex set of emotions, behaviors, and beliefs associated with strong feelings of affection, protectiveness, warmth, and respect for another person. Love can also be used to apply to non-human animals, to principles, and to religious beliefs. For example, a person might say he or she loves his or her dog, loves freedom, or loves God.
Love in general to me is an emotion that is greatly felt deeply. It’s action and an energy. It begin with self-love. When my first love(s) of writing, music, and books entered my life, I didn’t love myself. I was a child and didn’t fully understand much about it. I would see how people would treat each other and called it love. Now as an adult after learning the truth, I know what it really mean. What it’s all about.
I’ve written so many posts about love along with poems and quotes that I don’t want to sound like a broken record. Love is important and serious to me. It’s not something to be played with. Love is patient, respectful, and gentle. Love is so many things. I can’t truly say that I have been in love that I’m sure about. So, that’s why it is vital for me to work on myself and love all of me so when love(real and unconditional) does find me, I will recognize it. And that’s because I first love me. Though I do know, the love of self, the love of God, the love from a child and parent, perhaps even a sibling is the best love. A friend? Maybe, but I’m only speaking from experiences.
What is a first love to you? Thank you for reading.
Stay tuned for Day 20.
The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.
