The peaks and valleys are why you shine!
And then…………….A quick change offered me my biggest challenge to rise from the reality of, “what was”, to “what will be”, and how to resonate again with a new perspective.
The changes and traumas whirled me around for 5 solid years, spinning me and challenging my greatest fears and failures and testing my depth and desires, not to mention my deepest intentions and truths, finances and emotional well being, to highlight a few.
I can tell you in a short version without creating a book of circumstances. The circumstances mean the world to me because I lived them, however, each person is individual.
I’m not here to tell you my way is the right way, it is a way. Sharing my techniques to healing on a daily basis, even in the middle of the traumas continues to help me heal as well.
I feel like I can start to share more deeply with you now, ask any questions you would like and feel free to share your thoughts.
This is not to say I have it all figured out.
What I have figured out is that I am enough and whole.
Action is very important and often misunderstood as just a mobile body, of course, this is true, however, the action comes in the process first of changing a thought, having a new perspective, a desire, and intent.
As important as a mobile body, a thought and emotion must be flowing in action, rather than sitting stagnant and festering toxic energy in your body. When the flow is not active it is a critically unhealthy atmosphere for healing, as we all know.
I have been in fitness and nutrition literally a lifetime, I started studying and learning long before I was a legal age to get certified. It is in my DNA to want the best for everyone and after 50+ years, for me too.
This letter is to awaken and create awareness to a weekly letter I will post in between my, “Sunshine” soul writing to share with you my favorite staples that gave me a foundation when I felt as if it wasn’t there.
Also to all the empty nesters, parents who have lost children, like me ( the heaviness and feeling lack of everything, good, bad, excruciating, painful and all the in-between) who lost literally a part of themselves, to the middle age blues playing in your head lost in the middle beautiful people, there is more!
I love you, Sunshine
Courage is a love affair of the unknown.
Carrying the light
The solstice night
And all that shines brightly
Attempt to say
Decide which way
What will you choose to believe
Don’t miss the light of day living someone else’s way!
When the light of the day slowly fades
Sounds quiet down all around
Shade takes the stage gently perspective is changed
Where a moment ago light and shade both took center stage
They bow with the honor of true love in a universal exchange
Miraculously the tides never hide
Crashing and surging to a universal rhythm
Pebbles in infinite amounts toss and turn
Offering an insurmountable melody of beauty to align
Give way to a thought, what is life about
Some days interpret as heavy
Some say, ready
Others seem even and steady
As the light will slowly fade
Another day is gifted into the nightshade
No matter how far away you are no matter how many stars you’ve travelled so far, I love you!
The voice to my soul
My purpose to grow
My guide ahead
And that star so bright
The voice in the breeze
The crackle in the trees
Your infinite strength
Your more than any word can define
Youre my blessing of truth divine
Your forever my son
The only one
Your presence is a promise I always feel
I love you,
Your momma FOREVER
I MISS YOU HERE ON EARTH!
Strength is not what you see it the energy moved through your belief!
Strength is not a color or a gender
It’s energy moved
Strength is truth
Strength is not visible or even physical
Strength is believing
The courtship of your being
It’s energy spilling from the tongue and lips
It’s energy in the sway of your hips
It’s energy in your step and even regret
Strength can shatter
It can fill you with all that matters
Strength can sweep you off your feet
It’s the energy in which it moves
that gives it strength.
Do not mistake softness for the absence of strength
Strength is not what you see it’s what you feel coming from the energy moved in your belief
The lesson in the reflection is not seen but heard, it is hidden in the silence of your words!
It is in the voice where the vibration will rise
It is in the stillness when there is a sudden distraction of surprise
It is in the decision, not the defense where you discern
Where enlightenment lights the way
Offensive reactions go away
Where understanding is no longer spoken in words
Where trust is as solid as gravity and not considered a verb
Where the human distraction to compress, stress and not rest,
transforms the literal short, sparked by the persistent bending of cords
The human form is only as strong as the light you see
Design your plan to stand, while mistakes will be made, the lessons are the courage to maintain accountability to build a solid frame!
Find the fuel that sparks a flame
Release all blame
Jump where you’d rather stand
Stand after falling apart became part of the plan
Cry where tears need space
Create where loneliness resides
Love where doubt pushes you aside
Scream out loud to the full moon
Release the strings not tuned
Emptiness is a place
Where a gift is placed
A surrendered yet not yet captured infinity
Paint your design with the brush of choice
Framing in the empty space
Where light tunnels through to touch
a deeper part of you
Following the heart, lead by the soul and authentically guided by the truth in the pull, even after you let go!
The heart knows
It pulls even when your mind lets go
Intertwined fabric of heart and soul
Dancing together perfectly aligned
Stitched and woven without illusion of time
Harmonizing the souls spoken lines
Love brilliantly laced
Memories not to be erased
Stay for a moment in this place
Feel the lesson placed
To love you, unconditionally, is faced
It is in the thought where “you are” will start, it is in the shaking and cracks of your ground you will be found and it is in the action where life becomes profound.
It is not the opinion of another that shakes your ground
It is the cracks in the ground now open and found
“You are”, speaks loud, what follows can lift or tear you down
Awareness,”you are”, the color in my fall
“You are”, the sturdy when the wind calls
“You are”, the gratitude in my nature
Deep Breath, “you are” a life-changing miracle of adventure
“You are” a creative portraiture
Wisdom, “you are”, the gift of all experiences manifested as courage
“Live”, “you are” the purity and love I embrace and encourage
A place where no regrets are traced
And harmony and love are never replaced
