In the most unexpected places you will feel the most unexpected language of the heart, listen, it’s telling you what it needs.
Adventure isn’t always where you are
It’s where you’ve been
It’s where you’re going
It’s deep inside every moment
Adventure arrives in color
In feelings and emotions
Adventure will call you and resisting will have no relevance
Where you are is always the start to every adventure
Listen to your heart right now
What does it tell you
No one knows your heart like you do
It is the lifeline to every adventure
It beats according to your needs
When it hurts, adventure the pain
When it’s joyful, adventure the joy
When it needs nurturing, nurture it
When it needs love, love it
When it calls for adventure
Adventure into it
Your heart has more memory than your brain, it knows every adventure and experience and it will show up for you when you need to be reminded or heal something or adventure an emotion or feeling. You won’t always be energetic and you won’t always be relaxed, hardships will come and go and success will also. Nothing is permanent and everything is temporary, change is inevitable and if you can’t bend with change then change will bend you. Adventure into the heart and allow it to beat solid for you, to protect you, to nurture you, to love you and return that adventure by listening to what it needs, it’s your lifeline.

When a crisis demands you to be clear, to focus, to take care of the intimate details of your life and create a healthy environment inside and outside of yourself and loved ones, there is where perspective rises to an all time high.
When times call for nestling in
Where nature is your sanctuary not a church
Proving workouts can be done at home
Better yet OUTSIDE
Cooking more and using your own creativity energy
Less of fast spontaneous choices
More of mindful healthy solutions
Putting phones down
Talking about real life more
Staring at the TV less
Sharing eye to eye concerns
Getting real with a global demand to be conscious
Waking up to what you have been missing
More of you and less of everyone else
More of quality family moments
Less of leaving
More dinners at the table or under the table if you choose
Delight in intimate time together
Remember what conversation is again
Find music instead of news
Dance in the living room
Don’t resist the stillness required
Instead gather who’s important and tell them
In this time where countries are closing doors to business and seeing a Dr. is only for emergencies. Where food and household goods are completely depleted in every store. Where handshakes no longer are healthy and hugging is now filled with danger.
Where fear DOES NOT have to come before laughter and solid growth and a rising to a better US is not only offered, but now demanded.
This is a calling to us all, to stand up for ourselves and each other, to gain the strength that has been given to a system to care for us instead of caring for ourselves.
There are emergencies Dr.s will see and critical cases that are being served. Remember that Dr.s are humans too with families to go home to and lives lived outside of their field.
Be sensitive to others, evaluate your symptoms and create a healthy , peaceful environment for yourself and loved ones.
It is in the calm, peaceful space inside you, you will heal, it is in the diligence to make sure you are taking care of your own health that will ultimately help others.
Be mindful, kindness and compassion go a long ways.
It is in your paws I found true love!
Their hearts beat for you to come near
A love so sweet
Kisses don’t wait
Love never hesitates
With a Ruff voice
A paw in hand
An anxious stance
Thank you for your loyal love
Everyday, you teach me to stop and play
The importance of setting aside moments to connect everyday
In all I have experienced on love, or what I think love is, this is where I have found the truest most genuine love of all, right next to GODs love.
I believe He brought dogs here to teach us about love and appreciation, attentiveness and quality time is right up there with love and demand for naps. They never ask or feel guilty they just do it and feel better for it.
They are always up for kissing and never ask if you want one, they just give it and are happy when they get one back and even when they don’t.
If you’re not paying attention, they don’t complain, they just bump you and look at you with love and you melt into them.
Why don’t people melt this way?
They always meet you at the door and show excitement to see you, even if all you did was throw the garbage out. They are there to make you feel appreciated for every single move you make.
No wonder people are hard to please, we spend more time waiting and less time loving. They spend all their time loving!
You can’t even get the attention of a person now days unless you’re texting or messaging them, they will see that before they see you right next to them.
You’re just one of many to a person, but to them you are everything.
They never loose track or keep track of time, people freak out honk and run each other off the road, scream yell speed and flip you off if you’re holding them up for a second.
They just look at you and smile as if you’re honking at them with love. Nothing is taken personally and love is always assertive and courageously given , you will never be in lack.
Dogs are the WAY TO HAPPINESS!
Change is inevitable, perception is choice, arrangement is a gift wrapped in action and a voice.
Where there is love there is no destruction
Where creation exists, strength is continually being designed
Flowers burst into bloom
Sunshine heals wounds
Rain clears pessimism from the earth
Storms rearrange foundations
Beauty is continually rebirthed
Laughter merges into cracks with a steady pace
Where kindness changes a frown on a face
Change starts within an evolving grace
Improvement or destruction both thrive in change
Change is inspired by how it’s arranged
How will you alter change to inspire
How will your communication be admired
Will you become the best you can be
Or will change get the best of how you see
Change is inevitable
Perspective is a choice
Change will happen whether you like it or not, you change, you’re older, or feel younger, you get stronger or weaker. One area may improve while another is let go. Change is occurring no matter how you choose to friend it or not friend it, change is YOU, good or bad, you are changing.
Our choices to change are not ours, our actions and our perspective on change is ours, our plans, our decisions , they are ours. We don’t get to decide if we change, its inevitable, it is how you will see change, if you will ignore it and let it makes its choices without your input. Either way change is happening.
How will you decide to be aware of the changes in you before the changes make the decisions for you?
You can’t stop the earth from turning, you can only turn with it. Is your life creating you, or are you aware enough to create your life?
The tides roll in and they roll out, but they never come back exactly the same!
Tides change inevitably
The sun rises into a sunset
Love and pain
Do they rise and set as well
Life and death, are they lovers
Are we dyeing to live or living to die
Resistance thrives in our stubborn embrace
Is it resistance that creates our pain
What used to be community has taken on separation
Our younger generation standing for their truth
The older generation standing for theirs
In between a generation split
Compassion has no judgements
It doesn’t split from itself
It is love, it leads and follows in harmony with our heart
It changes without judgements attached
But instead evolves with understanding
In the stillness you will hear!
It seems the stillness is where everything is found
Where movement comes alive
Where the waves crashing tell a story
Where the leaves dance and sing with glory
Where the birds soar with intension
Where pain and joy have no tension
Where love remains throughout
It seems in the stillness is where everything is found
Where feeling is in the beat of your heart
Where your mind sinks into a rational peace
It seems that in the stillness is where everything is found
When your lost, be still, you will hear the whisper
Be still it is where everything is found
In my stillness I can feel the intensity of all that moves around me. I can feel my heart beating and my chest rising. I can almost see with inner eyes the blood flowing through me. I can see the pain in another eyes and wonder is that the reflection of so much more to be healed within me?
Where you are calm you will hear, where you are still you will know, where you find peace, love will grow.
Your body is already speaking to you, it wants more or less of something, it may be in pain, or sickness or anger has driven a wedge between you and stillness. Sadness may be filled with joyful gestures to cover up the feeling we can’t seem to shake and loss may be settling in your bones with numbness you can’t seem to touch.
What if all of this is ok and what if all of this is the beautiful process we need to become our truest version of ourselves. What if who you are right now is exactly who you need to be ,to become who you want to be. What if every step from this space is a step forward into the acceptance, it is the process. It is the falling apart that requires us to heal.
Inevitably things fall apart
Preparing a new start
You learn that kindness has a time limit
That love does not promise
Instead the promise is love
You learn moments live in the experience
That experiences are always passing
You learn that light is always available
Even in the dark
You learn that reflection has nothing to do with a mirror
That admission to your life is already paid
You just have to enter, in full presence
When you realize how precious life is, you start to breathe more and observe more.
The anger of others stops settling in your bones and you are able to walk through it and not into it.
You start to realize your presence is needed more for you than anyone else and that it is in the hearts of others they get to choose when that time is for them.
When you realize how precious life is, you love more and have a better sense of who your best self is.
