It’s Friday! It’s Friday! I can’t believe that I still celebrate the proverbial TGIF, even after being retired for nearly a year; yet I do. Guess it’s hard to teach an old woman new habits. Goodness knows, my hubby’s trying!
Len reminds me daily, “Relax! We’re retired!” He affectionately throws his hands in the air and says, “What are we doing today, luv?” He speaks with a light-hearted, untroubled buoyancy that amazes me. In the back of my mind, I’m thinking, “Really? We can do that?” I am blessed.
…and so…Yesterday, we drove over to Prosper, Tx to pick up an item for our little antique~boutique business. Rural north Texas is always a treat to travel. On our way back, we stopped in Celina, TX, which is historical, with a small up and coming downtown energy that I found inspiring. While window shopping on the square, one could hear the sounds of progress…bulldozers pulverizing old concrete walls, cranes hauling debris away. We could see cars dotting in and out, smell the aromas from numerous cafes, and we enjoyed shopping the small gift shops. One could just feel the excited anticipation of success and imagine the visions of hope. Ah yes, as an entrepreneur, I recognized that feeling, and then…An epiphany! It’s cliché, I know, but oh, so true.
THE NEW WAS REPLACING THE OLD.
I was hearing the sounds of progress, the senses of new life, the unraveling of old for new. The chaos of it all took me aback. For a moment, I became the old brick building being demolished one wall at a time. I sensed fears being crushed one brick at a time, and I inhaled the dust of a lifetime of love, mistakes, successes, and lessons that enable me to successfully meet the next change before me.
EVOLVEMENT SELF-DISCOVERY SOUL PREPARATION
More often than not, we either choose or we are mandated to tear away walls, jerk roots from earth’s hold, catapult steel beams of bad choices into salvage bins AND make room for new lessons, new adventures, new ideas, new mindsets, new elations, new disappointments.
MY NATURAL CHAOS of LIFE IS TO UNDERSTAND MY METAMORPHASIS
I rant, “But reinvention is so hard!” I question, “What’s wrong with the way I am?” I resist, only to find that staying tight in the bud is truly harder than blooming in God’s love and angels’ Light. New missions await.
I WAKE UP EACH DAY BORN AGAIN. BLESSED. HOPEFULL.
Today is Friday. Changes? Not sure what or if there will be any, but I do know that I have one variable that never changes, and that is to live life lovingly.
Of course, I fall short of expectations, and I ask forgiveness to all. Yet, isn’t it wonderful that we can change, evolve, and repurpose? HE didn’t say it would be easy…just worth it.
Need help? Seek until you find those tools, those resources and those people that will enable you to reach your goals. Pray. Open your heart. Be kind. Remember the children who need us.
TGIF, MY FRIENDS!
