Let’s get rid of the labels. The labels I am referring to are those qualifiers that precede a conversation like, “Oh! I was talking to this Black friend.” or “I have this straight friend.” or “Of course he must be A.D.D.” I want to say, “Drop the labels” We create a thinking process, by their inclusion, that takes the listener into a new arena. When dealing with parents and their children, the parents, often seem to have to place a disclaimer on their child, “I need you to know that she is dyslexic.” When I see a child before me I see them in their total perfection. This way I get to have a whole new relationship with the child and for that period of time, that I am with the child, the child feels no discounting, they feel honored for all that they are. This works well with adults too. I never need to know all the negative things about a person from another’s point of view. It truly is not necessary. Let’s drop the label making and instead, picture a Divine Being of Love and Light. We may have a whole new conversation.
Sometimes the most painful things in our lives come from the dishonesty or the unwillingness to take responsibility for the way that we feel. If we could only check in on our hearts and speak the truth in the beginning and say what is truly on our minds, we could by-pass so much of the pain. There is no shame in feeling sad. There is always a perfect gift in that sadness. The sadness is there to remind us of our human frailties. The sadness is there to bring us a gift in acceptance of all of our ways of being. What have we been avoiding? The secrets and those gifts lay within each one of us just waiting for acceptance and a pro-active step. We need to be good to ourselves, lighten up and allow room for all those feelings to flow. This is the honesty our beings need to be fulfilled. Being authentic to our inner spirit and to our souls help to release the joy within each one of us. Life is supposed to be fun and if we’ re not having fun it is our own fault. There is no one to blame for my not having fun but me! I’ve got this!
Today I am so grateful to report that my friend Darlene is out of hospital and home waiting the arrival of her sister who is coming from Florida to spend time with her. Thank you and all of our magnificent Angels for responding in this special way.
I have so much to be grateful for and I want to give a huge thanks to the Emergency (911) team that took such great care of my friend. Just as an aside if you ever feel scared or concerned, about what is happening to you and you are dizzy and alone, dial 911. Then call a friend and have then meet you at the hospital. Allow the professionals to take care of you and never forget all those Angels around you.
Today I call on my Angels to watch over a dear friend who is in hospital. Her name is Darlene and she herself has been a special Angel to many people and now it is time to pay it forward. When I think about all those special Angels who have been there for me, in times of hardship, this is a no-brainer! We are all responsible for our lives going forward and now, more than any other time in my life I recognize precisely what paying it forward means. This is simply a time for Darlene to lay back and be pampered just like she has pampered others all of her life. Thank you Angels – now go for it!
As I experience the ups and downs of life I am eagerly awaiting the gift and the message of perfection in each arena. There is always a gift in each happening of life no matter how troublesome those outward appearances may be. So I take time to meditate and let go of all those fears that may have been brought to the surface. They are there for a good reason. Those fears are there to remind me of the perfection and all I need to do is ask and the gift will be shown to me. I am so grateful for this perfection. I’ve got this!
