I wonder what kind of person you might be? Are you pondering over death or celebrate life? Are you sad or joyful that you were chosen to live? Are you weeping tears of sorrow or laughing over beautiful memories spent?
The choices we make in life reflect who we are. Discover within yourself that change brings transformation and growth? Learn to grow steady like the mighty Oak but bend like the Weeping Willow. In the face of adversity we must keep moving forward if we are ever to persevere through anything in life. What challenges us today makes us who we are tomorrow. Be like a tiny flowing ripple that grows out from the center and touches what ever is in its path. People, places and things, become altered by these flowing ripples and one hopes that the ripples he creates are white worthy ripples for everyone to experience. Our own challenges with in us shape us into who we will become, to grow beyond what we expected of ourselves. How will we ever know what we are capable of if we don’t push our limits? Why only live just to exist? The more effort you put in, the more you will gain. We don’t have to try and change the world. We can just try to change ourselves. One day at a time, small steps within our selves become big white worthy ripples for the world……
Think of all your unique qualities that you possess as an individual and how much they can impact another. Do you have the ability to overflowing with compassion at someone’s sadness? The talent to make someone laugh when they cry? The power to uplift someone’s spirit? The sensitivity to console someone in just the right way. It takes a certain someone to do those things, not just anyone. Different people react to different expressive style, there is someone there for every one of us. Know that you are needed in some way. You have been given life for a reason. You are an essential piece of the puzzle. Someone’s ripple, someone’s connection, someone’s lifeline, someone’s rock, someone’s friend. Dare to go beyond yourself. Let go of your selfishness and go to selflessness. You never know when it might be someone’s life altering moment, that one action that creates an action with in them, and the ripple moves out and on to another…….
We have the power to influence action, positive or negative, the power to set an example, the power to be a leader. the power to fly or fall, react or not, get angry or remain calm, the power to be vengeful or to forgive, the power to show cruelty or show compassion, the power to stand up and fight for what you believe in or not, the power to CHANGE or not, you have the power to recycle or not, to smile or frown, to tell the truth or to lie…………. all in one tiny moment….. The power is in that moment, the CHOICE you make IN that moment…. That IS the power. The power of NOW. Realize that in any given moment is magic. In any given moment you can transform. In any given moment time is NOW. It can be a time to change ANYTHING. Close your eyes and see that moment – ticking toward you, within you, outside of you, feel that moment – changing, creating, building, moving in and out of you, , BE that moment. Don’t be afraid – if you miss the first one another one comes right after that….
Will you live in the darkness or grow in the light? Rise above the challenges and succeeded not only for your self but for the whole of humanity who lays in darkness. We don’t have to live in darkness anymore. The darkness is fear. Fear of the unknown. Living is life. Live.
Let this give you the chance to see how unique and precious you are in your own way. That you are someone’s angel with a talent or special gift that no one else has… A smile on the subway, a hand reaching out, a light in one’s darkness…..
Remember, one day at a time, small steps within ourselves become big white worthy ripples for the world…….
Be careful of the ripples you create – it could be doom or destiny – I am left with only seeds - Will I grow into God or Frankenstein? R.
