The Power in Finding You

I was browsing through my documents on my computer and found this piece of encouragement. I don’t know where it came from but I decided to share it. I hope you are as enlightened as I am.

The Power in Finding You

When you cease to be “the person you were never created or intended to be, fear will no longer continue to be what it was never empowered to be. Doubt will cease to be what it was never empowered to be.

When you take that bold action that manifests your Original Self and Original Intent, “all of the emotional death trappings of the soul” will take action and depart from your life.

Be what doubt cannot be. Be what fear has no poet to be. Be what limitation is afraid to be. When you become your Truest Self, every lie will have to disappear.

We are not living in a world of impossibilities. Everything is truly possible to them that no only believe, but participate with their belief. Believing a thing, without participating with that thing, is merely an idea with no food to drink. It cannot be strengthened. It is a weak thought.

Have unlimited faith in who you were created to be.

Allow the curiosity of Divine Discovery to navigate you through the valleys of uncertainty. Allow the Attraction of Truth, Possibility, and Oneness with God, to lead you to the awakening of an individual that has resided within you all along, who at times, spoke to you through your dreams, your passions, and even the simplest, doodling on scrap sheets of paper.

No one is obligating you to be who you were never created to be. Find Yourself. And when you do fear will find its way out of your life.

End Zone

For the last alphabet, Z, I chose the word zone.

I feel I have been in two zones the month of April. One blogging in the A-to-Z Blog Challenge. The other blogging in the National Poetry Writing Challenge.

I believe I completed almost all of the blogs for each day though I was sidelined with a dental issue I’m still recuperating from.

It is my second year for the A-to-Z Challenge and my first for the Poetry Challenge. I enjoyed both of them more than I imagined I would.

I met a lot of nice people who read my blogs and whose blogs I read. I loved all the comments and encouragement I was given.

Thanks for helping me to strive to become a better writer.

Starting May 1 I will be crossing over to a new zone. I will be trying to write something I’ve never considered before. I will be attempting to write a fiction short story. After I get it written I will enter it into a contest. I don’t know what contest but that’s at the end of the task.

My greatest accomplishment will be when it is finished and submitted. Winning would be icing on the cake but when I submit it I will be winning. I will have won over fear. Defeated it with my foot on its neck. I will then be a force to be reckoned with. Ha, ha, ha.

I will continue to hang out in the blogging zone and I will be working diligently in the new zone also.

Thanks for hanging out with me this month and making it a productive and satisfying month for me.

Blessings to all.

Yesterday

Yesterday is in the past

What happened then is gone forever

Nothing can be done

No matter how clever

That can bring it back

To clean up the track

Of mess that was made

The wrong words said

That shouldn’t have been heard

Things that shouldn’t have been seen

Yesterday is gone

Today is here

Watch carefully

What is said and done

So when tomorrow comes

And today is gone

There won’t be a concern

About what went wrong

X-Cite

Having a little trouble finding an X word to write about. I’m having to manipulate a word a bit. The word I’m going to write about is x-cite.

Some things that x-cite me are:

Music-I love music, especially smooth jazz. Some people say it’s not real jazz but it’s real enough for me. It’s smooth jazz for a smooth operator.

Writing-has been a deliverance tool for me. The more I write the freer I become. I may not be good at writing, it is helps me face hard things I would normally not address.

It would really x-cite me to hug, kiss and hold my grand babies. I would be x-cited to see the twinkle in their eyes and the cute way their mouths curve into a smile knowing that their grandma was lovingly hugging them.

I could go on but I’m sure you get the idea.

What x-cites you?

4 Weddings

I am watching a TV show called 4 Weddings. I watch it every once in a while.

The four brides attend and rate each other’s wedding. I did see one show that the grooms judged the weddings. The brides and grooms weddings are judged on the venue, decorations, dress and food. A point system of 120 is used to determine the winner.  I’ve never seen anyone get close to 120.

There are a lot of superficial comments about the weddings that don’t take into account the couple’s taste and desires. I guess that’s how the game goes.

The prize for the winning couple is a honeymoon to an exotic destination. They find out the winner when the winning husband or wife arrives in the limousine. They get out with a bouquet of flowers and a card that tells where they are spending their honeymoon.

I don’t watch this show all the time. When I do I wonder why. It is so predictable. I guess it works when you’re not doing anything else.

I’ll be sure not to invite them to my wedding because it will be filled with all the things I like.

Unexpected

This week the unexpected happened to me.

I went to the dentist because a couple of teeth that a needed to be looked at.
One tooth has a root canal and the other one felt like part of the filling was missing.

After getting X-rays the doctor discovered that the tooth with the root canal was infected and the filling had disappeared out of the other one.

I was referred to a specialist for a consultation. The doctor agreed that the root canal tooth needed to be extracted. The tooth had previously been treated for infection. The treatment eased the pain but didn’t eliminate the infection. As the result of that I’ve walked around with the infection for about a year. Another unexpected.

Today I’m minus the tooth and working on eradicating the infection totally. After the infection is gone I will continue on my quest for restoration. With no more unexpected detours.

Have you had any unexpected in your life?

Tied

When I got to the bowling alley tonight I found that we were tied again with several other teams.

This is the third week we’ve been tied. The first week we were tied for first place with two teams. We won the first game. The second and third games we handed the over to the opposing team who happened to be the number one team. We fell apart. I guess we were intimidated or something.

The second week we were vying for fourth place. Again we were tied with two teams. We won two games plus total points. Our last game we had 1001 pins. We were in shock and amazed. We loved it-never happened to us before.

This week we were tied with two teams for ninth place. We lost the first game. We won the second and third game plus total pins.

We are not the best team but a miracle is keeping us going. There are twenty teams and we have been in most of the positions. Up and down, back and forth.

Who knows, we might just be number one when the league is over.
