My Heart Used to Light Your Way

My Heart Used to Light Your Way

 

Somewhere between the evening news and getting caught up with the DVR’d shows I’ve not been watching last night it hit me that I’ve taken a huge step backwards in the love and life categories. It’s probably why I’ve been so blue lately, I’ve been barely breathing. Today, on the first day of this weekend I am recommitting to live my love, live my passion, rekindle my curiosity and dedicating these days to living my dreams. Sure we can all say that, but at some point for it to be true we have to show intent, not just words. Are you with me? In this moment, live your values. With each person you meet, live your compassion, your respect, your authenticity. Be real, that’s a hard one isn’t it? We put up these persona’s because we fear the real us is sadly lacking. Come with, let’s put aside just thinking about or wishing for those things that are most meaningful for us. Let’s put aside those thoughts, grab the brass ring and live our dreams in every action.

It’s our time to spend our time really, truly enjoying whatever we enjoy. Let’s push past the mere appearance of richness and fulfillment, and actually get down to living our richness, live whatever it is that will lead to fulfillment. Stop doing things just to say you’ve done them. Do whatever you do because there is something deep inside that implores you to do it. Because think about it, instead of crying over past mistakes, or looking forward to what’s coming in the future, life is ours to live right now. It’s time, surely right this moment it is the time to be true, be you, I’ll be me, and we can be filled with the unique joy that is ours to experience. Lord knows I’ve tried to rush through enough things in my life. I hope you have a purposeful well lived in weekend! As for me, right now I am going to go enjoy the good life we call work.. *sigh*

  1. I like that sentiment! I’ve lived in the doldrums occasionally, I call it the Land Inbetween, as I’m not really me there. I’m just the sum of my negative thoughts and the past, it’s hardly human. Back in the real world I only have to watch the nature, the sea or the simply action of sunshine as it travels across a room to know that the Land Inbetween only exists if I let it. ❤

  2. I’m gonnna be in Tampa Bay and elsewhere for about a month starting in about ten days. Shall we? Meet for coffee?
    and then there’s this:.

    Bernie Sanders needs to ask these four questions of Hillary Clinton. How does she stand when it comes to the policies your husband forced down the Democrats throats, or coaxed via federal spending projects:

    1) NAFTA: just how many millions of jobs were lost, replaced slowly and painfully at $6.-10 an hour when factory pay in Detroit was higher than $25 per hour for most workers?

    2) GATT 2: This WTO-Creating abomination gave up our sovereignty (no country should be allowed to punish another with fines over trade, come on!) and opened the door to tens of millions more jobs moving to the cheapest labor they could find with favorable governmental non-interference (enter China). Now that Obama has “done it again” via the Pacific deal, when will you bring back the $25-an-hour jobs, and how?

    3) The Welfare Reform act of 1995: After shipping unskilled and skilled labor overseas, William J. smiled as he hammered the lower class with draconian cuts to the welfare system. How did that work out? With way more gun violence, crime, drug dealing and use, and of course the DOUBLING of the USA prison population. How can you or your husband still even be called Democrats?

    4) Worst of all: The banking Reform Act of 1995. During the depression banks were reeled in to lending $4 for every $1 they had on deposit. This tight ration meant it was nearly impossible to get a loan and the real estate and country suffered immeasurably but recovered. Does the opposite prevent a crash then? I think not. Your husband loosed banking from the generous $12 worth of loans for every $1 in the bank to $30 available to lend for every $1 in the bank. The result has been not JUST the subprime mortgage scandal but the resulting illegal and unnecessary bail outs, I mean is this a free market or not? The point is the result was more damaging as mortgage foreclosures soared way over 10,000 per day.
    Now we have four times more dollars in float than we did in 2008, could this cause inflation?

    Which of any of these policies your husband ushered in do you agree with, and why? How!?

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
