Flicker, Flame and Freedom

I love how the tiniest flicker from the smallest flame has the ability to light up a room.  
Perhaps the tiny flame is not strong enough to read by but the strength of the light is just enough for me to make my way around a darkened room.  It is just the right amount of light to see in the moment, to pray and meditate before the beginning of my day.

I am in transition, changing the way I start my day.  I no longer need the bright lights, books and baggage to help me navigate through and to my truth. I have spent years sitting in brightly lit rooms before the break of dawn.
I have been in the process of breaking old habits while creating new ones.  Years of intentional times in the light has now paid off.  The truths I leaned into and learned are now carved out on my heart and soul.

In recovery I was taught, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.  I believe that is what I have experienced over the last several months.  Even a good thing needs to come to an end to make room for a new beginning.
It is like opening up a suitcase to find nothing inside.  It feels like insanity believing that if I continue to open up that bag something just might come out.  It is time to put the luggage away and embrace all that I have been given and all that is about to come.

I am grateful for the times when I had the brightness of the light to help me find my truth.  Now, however it is the flicker of the flame that reminds me, I know the truth and the truth has set me free.

My focus word for the week FREEDOM..

Do you have a focus word for your week?  If so I would love to know what it is and why you chose that word.

Thank you for letting me share.

“Living In the Moment”

This Little Tribe Of Mine


This little tribe of mine, were going to let us shine, let us shine, let us shine, let us shine.  Oh how grateful I am to have women in my life who bring out the best in me.

With summer coming to an end and the feeling of fall floating in the air, I find myself thinking about all I have to be grateful for.  I know doing this will help ease the pain of letting go of summer and embracing the cool days ahead. 

These women have helped me find my voice, see my value and embrace my race.  They have helped me see that I am brave, bold and beautiful, from the inside out.

My prayer for all those who come across my blog is that each of you if you haven't already, will find your tribe, your peeps those who speak your language and know your voice.

Those special someone’s who have away of wiggling into your hearts with such ease that you will know without a doubt that they were sent from God.

So, as I say goodbye to my favorite season, I hold my sacred soul sisters hands and embrace the next to come. 

And I pray you will do the same.

Just Be

Today I choose to do one thing.

  I choose to live from the inside out.

    I choose to follow the spirit inside me.

       The spirit that moves like the wind.
           The spirit that cannot be seen, yet leaves its mark.

              choose to do one thing and that is just be me.

Happy Monday my blogging friends.  Summer is coming to a close and the greatest gift this season has given me is the ability to be.  Be in the moment, be me and be free. 

Thank you to all those teachers who have taught me the skill of choosing.  I was not born knowing how to choose but rather, those along the way who loved me enough to stop and take the time to show me how to make choices and wise ones at that.  I stop today and pause and pray, I whisper a prayer of gratitude for each of you.  A gift you have all given me along the way.

Thank you for letting me share.
