Weeks 24 and 25 -- Heartless.......

Heartless..... the music that is playing may or may not be something you would listen to... but the song is powerful.  

And it brings me to this weeks post.



First of all, it really isn't about me anymore.  I've had my share of heartache over the years and I remember what it felt like.... and I am happy to know that that kind of heartache will never touch my soul again

But I remember.




At this position of my life I now see those I love suffer this heartache.  

I see the pain, the tears, the sadness, the betrayal.

I watch as the scars build up and the trust goes down.

Heartless?

Yes, people are heartless to one another.

In your life.  By your side.  Laughter.  Silliness.  Love.  Dreams. Wishes. Hopes. 

But in the blink of an eye



You don't matter to them any more.  Just like that.

and You are left to pick up the pieces of your heart and glue them back together..
and that takes time.

It's not a journey that anyone can do for you.

Although I would gladly absorb it for those I love.

Heartless?

Yes.   People who profess yesterday to love you can be so heartless.



But the hard truth about this, that we learn as we journey through it.

This wasn't meant to be.  It wasn't the real thing.  It wasn't your destiny. It was a stepping stone of knowledge.  Yes,  a painful one.  But necessary.


After the first bit of time in your healing... my wish is that you understand your value and understand that the heartless one had no real value for you.  None.

Friends... Family....

Unconditional love.  It will see you through the pain of betrayal and loss but it won't make it go away.

For this journey, only you will rise above it all and end up a much better person.  Always.





And for the rest of this post, just some wonderful inspirations that have helped me over the years.

If your heart is hurting, please know it is temporary.  There is a huge world out here.  Simply beautiful, full of beautiful people.  Never let the heartless ones spoil your outlook and never stop believing in love.  The beauty, the strength, the incredible joy.  It's out there.  It's waiting for you.  Stand tall.   Don't settle for anyone who will give you anything less than what you deserve - and you deserve to be loved as strongly as you yourself love.  No matter who you are.



After A While
by
Veronica Shoftsall

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security. 

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. .

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure;
You really are strong, you really do have worth. 
And you learn, and you learn
With every goodbye you learn.








Light a candle.  Say a prayer.  Shake off the hurt and Know This

You are worth so much more.... 

Realize it.
Live it.

And Real Love will find you.

And it will keep you.


And REMEMBER>>>

Week 23 - A week in the life...

Week 23 of the year.  



I consider myself successful with this blog so far this year.   Yes, I know, some of the weeks have been combined but all in all, I'm sticking with it.   And that makes me happy.


Things have been pretty ordinary lately, and that's okay.  That makes me feel settled in my life, nestled.  Content.  Happy.

Going back to work full time was challenging for me.  Being pulled in several different directions and feeling my age most days.... but it's all coming together now, as I knew it would.


The most exciting thing...well, I got some new pots and pans and some new glasses for the kitchen 


And I am back to reading a wonderful set of books.... The Virgin River series by Robyn Carr..... 


Sharing with you this week....

Here is the stock picture of the doily I am working on and the link for the free pattern for anyone interested....




I'm making progress on mine and will share some photos soon.



The recipe I'm going to share this week is

BANANA GINGER SMOOTHIE

Soothe digestion, heartburn, nausea, and other stomach trouble with the fresh ginger in this natural remedy smoothie recipe.
SERVINGS: 2
1 banana, sliced
¾ c (6 oz) vanilla yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
½ tsp freshly grated ginger

COMBINE the banana, yogurt, honey, and ginger. Blend until smooth.




I came across this really cool challenge.

I'm choosing one each week -- I think they were meant to be more often, but it's okay.  Weekly is good for me...

I'm gonna call it...

Clutter Buster Challenge..... lol

As you can see, it's meant to be a daily challenge.... but I'm doing ONE per week.  I have so much to do daily, that I think this will work better for me.







This week..... 

COAT CLOSET...

I will let you know how that works out....






Naturally, I fell away from some of my lists on my listography....

you can view them 


but I am picking up where I left off and continuing on.   It's what I do best...



Starting up a second blog too.   

I'm real excited about it.   It, too will be a weekly blog but it is a Spiritual Place -- and a place, I hope, that will be of inspiration to bring Spirit into our daily lives.

It's so easy to go to church on Sunday.   Remember to say a prayer when in need..  etc. etc.

Many of us understand this.

But there are many people out there , I believe, who struggle to keep God in their lives daily.  And just set aside a little time.... turning new habits into very personal Spiritual experiences.

The new blog will be not religion centered, but Spirit centered.

Inspiration and Motivation is my goal with it.

The second blog is called

Whispering Horn's Walking With Spirit.

It should be up and running soon.  Been working on it :-)

  
See you all next week and remember this...

ALL OF THE DARKNESS IN THE WORLD CANNOT HIDE THE LIGHT OF A SINGLE CANDLE....

Be that candle for someone.... Let a candle shine for you..... Let the Light lead you in all that you do.
