What can I say? The heart wants what the heart wants… there’s no way of stopping it, believe me i’ve tried. But what do you do when it’s unrequited love? Enjoy the feeling. For you are capable of a beautiful emotion. You are capable of love and being loved. That my friends, is truly amazing.
I went to a funeral last Thursday for a very special man. I haven’t been to a funeral in years let alone a church. Funerals are sad, but can also be inspiring. As I looked around the church, I saw so many people that I haven’t seen in years. These people were once a part of my life, and some of them still are. Good memories of years gone past flooded my thoughts and I felt happy, not sad. ‘Henry’ brought good people together. This does not surprise me, and I don’t know why this came to me as a revelation but it did. I respected this man, not because he was a successful businessman but because he had a good value system. He earned the respect of others by instilling his values in his work and believing in himself and others. Many of his values live on in the staff, the team he built that made his business one of the best places to work in Vancouver. In that moment of revelation, I did not fear death. I felt inspired to continue to work on myself and be the best that I can be. I felt happy and lucky to have made such wonderful friends and acquaintances over the years, and most importantly to have known Henry.
A collection of lessons I learned in 2013 and over the years. Growth is an important part of life and I am thankful for having the opportunity to see challenges as just that. Growth. Happy New Year everyone!
I made it my New Year’s resolution to draw from these Permission cards daily. Just like a morning cup of coffee, these affirmation cards help my day get off to a good start. The mind is a powerful thing and manifesting positive messages before I start my day helps to take the piss out of my cornflakes.
Today’s message “Learn From Life”. Well, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out that life is ALL about learning. Although life’s lessons are open to interpretation and individual perspective; much like children’s programming… there is most always a lesson to be learned at the end of each day.
So, what was my life lesson for today? It was a lesson I have learned over and over again, but needed another reminder to simply LISTEN. It’s a quality that so important yet so difficult to master unless you take a vow of silence. Besides, I don’t need to be the one always talking. The planet is my University and knowledge awaits.
