I SEE Greatness In YOU!

surround yourself with dreamers

 

I spend my time, by choice, with those who see goodness and potential in me! Well…that is how it’s supposed to be. We all should encourage each other every day. I am sure the opportunity to encourage another arises more often than we realize. And we should make an effort to surround ourselves with people who encourage us and we encourage.  I think we should be around people who know how to dream and think it is awesome when you dream and think YOU are awesome. These people help us to grow.

it is always our choice who we give our time to. Yes, sometimes we get into situations where we have no choice but to be around people who drain our energy, people who seem to always look at the cup as being half empty.  While we may have no choice at times than to be around people like this, there are things we can do to help ourselves in these situations!  We can pray, we can meditate, we can call on our army of heavenly soldiers to bolster us up with a shield of protection. And yes, we can spend a few minutes in silent meditation, breath in breath out, even while in a room filled with other people. OR we can succumb to their draining ways and join in on the negative talk and actions…..which I am sure will make us feel so much better!  <——- sarcasm!

OK sarcasm aside, it is our choice how we maneuver through the challenges of life, nobody said it would always be a piece of cake, but there are tools we can use if we choose to.

I choose to!

As I Sit Here…………..

This morning as I put my feet on the floor my head was pounding; I had a terrible headache! But I was/am as grateful today as I have been any other morning. Why should today be any different from any other day? Why should today be any easier, any harder, filled with any more miracles, than any other day?

I ask myself this question; because it feels different.

In the months leading up to this moment, this day, I have awoken each morning and said my ” I love you” and my “thank you” and went on with my day…..but in the back of my mind, and sometimes in the forefront, there has been a voice saying to me “something BIG is happening”.   “What?” I would ask and I would wonder….What?!  What is this BIG thing that is happening? It was like I was always on the verge of something big!

So today I wake with my terrible headache and the rain was pouring outside; I know you expect me to tell you I had a great epiphany and I know what the BIG thing is! Sorry…… I still do not know,  but I did have an epiphany this morning and here it is……

I have not really asked the question “what is happening?”. I have walked around for months with this voice telling me “something big is happening” and I not once sat down and got real still with God and just asked “what?”  I have asked “what” in a non inquiring way…..but I have not got still (quieted my mind) and pondered or meditated with Him to learn the answer.

What have I done? I have done all the busy work that we as humans do when we think we are progressing towards something that is God intended (inspired). We take action….but maybe not inspired action….. maybe not God led action?  Sometimes we have to get out of our own way, to even see, that we have taken things out of His hands and are running the show ourselves.  And there He is watching and wondering…..”when are you going to let ME handle things and show you the way?”

So what is different today? Well, as I sit here, I am hopeful that today is the day I get out of my own way!
