"Grace, Peace & Love to you.
Hope from above to you.”
As I put up my lil’ wooden tree. 🌲
#MerryChristmas my dear friends, you’re all precious!
A lesson I learn and relearn from a sage: Give and Receive with your hands wide open, lest you crush what’s within and cease to receive the new & beautiful in store.

So we were weighing out comments this week.This time about #slacktitude. And then it dawned on us! If we were considered slack and still get the nods (plus looked this awesome), what more if we worked (out) as hard as you! But nah. #ditzedition
I can give you the other editions but that would be boring.
Today I received a gift.
A gift of pure life through words.
Same tool that often destroys, flippantly. Out of offense, jealousy, or perhaps nonchalance. Today, I experienced the other side of the spectrum.
For many, a snide remark or wounded ego results in a lifetime of grudge, despite all the good surrounding them. Yet for me, of late - one kind word, a moment of empathy, an unexpected encouragement. And it renders impotent, layers of measured poison, like an antidote - without the side effects.
Releasing the hate,the arghh, is not a skill. Honestly no goodness in your heart will ever get you there. It is a yield. And when you yield to a force and love so consuming. The most venomous poison and attack whatever the source, loses its hold, because you no longer fear. Not even death.
Today a note from someone miles away, who knows naught of what the months have displayed, helped me enter that zone of undeserved favour and utter fearlessness.
May it give you an ounce of faith&fearlessness too.
"Dear Annabel, here is a peaceful thought that I wanted to share with you:
Come sit a while
There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.
Quote: ‘Today may there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.’
Be blessed sister !”
Be loved ;)
