A Pristine Waterlily

The lotus comes from the murkiest water but grows into the purest thing.

"A pristine waterlily undiscouraged by its surroundings, rises from the depths of a murky pond. It's lotus petals perfume the air, as it flowers and blooms brilliantly, purely, divinely, despite and probably because of its origins. Becoming a spiritual person does not mean you to leave your prior life behind, but instead you integrate, learn, remember, and respect what brought you to this point  in the first place." Jacquelene Close Moore

An arrow of hope...

An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward.

So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it's going to launch you into something great.

Letting Go...

There is a popular saying...

Many have their own way of expressing it.

"If you love something, let it go, if it was meant to be it will come back to you."

It's a lesson of love.  One that does not control.  Selfless.  It's a lesson that we could pocket for many life situations.  One that continues to be studied.

Letting go... sigh... it brings freedom.  WHY?

Because you're not in control.  Never were.  Never will be.

So, we learn to live life letting go!  And what comes back our way will be apart of fate.  A story...

A beautiful story...

Of your journey.

Of learning.

Of love.

Of knowing.

Of just learning to be in this journey that can't be controlled.  Sounds redundant, but maybe it needs to be heard in a meditative state?

You know what? I can't wait see what comes back my way or what comes my way as a result of letting go.

And the things that don't come back...well... I just trust weren't meant to be.  Except, for a moment of learning and great love.

For myself, I am an optimist....

Here is a very helpful article to use as a reminder of the power of optimism.

I have found it to be the utmost truth.  Even, as of lately, when I struggle to be so...  I am reminded how unpleasant I become, how pessimism corrupts my soul, and I'm not the bubbly, cheerful, lovable, healthy, happy girl others enjoy being around.  Not to mention I don't enjoy being around myself!! Ha!

It just takes us a moment to go "What the hell is wrong with me!?  I've been down this road before and I DON'T LIKE IT!!!  I mean, really!  What is the definition of stupid? Get it together!"  Well, I guess that didn't sound so positive, but it works for sports! ;)

Don't get me wrong... we all need a healthy balance.  And being an optimist does not mean we put on the blinders and act like every thing is OK!  Not the point...  Just read the article.  It's a simple reminder...
