If you are fortunate enough to have your health, to have a job, a home and shelter, and food to eat – then you are blessed in this world! God lives in us, He is in our hearts. He is joy within us. He is love flowing out of us and to those around us. It is up to me, no one else to realize this, and to ALLOW it to live in me. It is up to you to do the same. I think life is this simple. We so over complicate and over stress everything, seems like everyone is always looking for something or someone to blame for their problems – I certainly know I do. This week a quiet voice from my mind came to me in a “moment” I was having, it said “you can either complain, cry and whine about this or you can make a decision to change it.” That statement, ever so clear, brought me peace. I understood that I have that power to make change for me. When I live in my joy, my love, and keep a grateful heart of hope and understanding of this simple fact, I am empowered to really live my life.
This holiday season find a silent night to ask yourself how you want to live your life, then remind yourself that you can! Don’t be afraid to let your love out and share this same message to the people in your life. Be thankful for what you have and know that if you have the things I mentioned above, you are blessed above the majority of the people in the world! It is really simple. We’re here for a minute to love for an eternity of generations to come!
How will you embrace this life?
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with love,
