Everything changes: seasons, environments, people, likes & dislikes, technology, time and you. I recently changed vocations from the Non Profit back to the For Profit sector.
Change is the constant that we all must adapt to at certain points in our lives. Our attitude and how we maneuver through these changes is important.
No matter how challenging change can be, make the decision to embrace it and make it work for you. Fighting against it will only leave you frustrated and spinning your wheels.
Like a wave, you can ride it out or go tumbling along while being thrashed and dragged about. Change is unavoidable.
The good news is… change can be better than you thought and even more rewarding but you’ll never find out if you’re in fear and constantly complaining. You’ll miss the beauty and blessing it brings. Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie
Never underestimate the power of love. In a world that says hurry up, faster and faster and I want it right now, love is not something to be rushed. Love is patient and kind and never insists on its own right or way, people do.
When pondering over whether you love someone, ask yourself, “Am I willing to wait for this person? How long?”
When love is true how long you wait is not the issue or a problem. A day seems like a minute and a month a day. Love is not governed by time and exists outside of time as we know time to be.
So, next time someone you believe you love asks you to wait or be patient, consider your reasons for wanting to rush. I know today is not promised but neither is the next hour or minute and rushing won’t change it.
Hugs and love from me to you. Valarie
How many times have you found yourself searching the night sky? What were you looking for? Did you find it?
Did you see a glimmer of hope that gave you the strength to endure a little longer? Or, do constantly search the sky for a silver lining.
Questions, questions, questions?
The real questions are, “Where does your faith lie? In whom do you trust? Dreams keep us going and hope encourages us to never give up.”
If we are not careful, we will always find ourselves waiting and longing for something that’s not meant to be while missing out on what is.
Hugs and love from me to you! Valarie
Life doesn’t always have to be colorful to be beautiful!
Honesty means being transparent, nothing concealed, no secrets, and full disclosure. In relationships it means opening yourself up to be known in depth as much as possible. Leaving yourself open to be hurt by the person(s) you’ve opened up to.
Trust is wrapped around honesty, because the more you trust someone, the more you open up to them. When trust is present honesty can flow freely, and unhindered. Although you leave yourself open to be hurt, trust allows you to do so believing that it is not misplaced.
Unconditional love shields the heart so that if honesty is false and your trust is misused, you will not be crushed, devastated or broken. Wounds will heal, hearts will mend, walls won’t go up to keep others out and make you a prisoner of your own emotions. You will hurt but you will also fully recover.
Honesty is a virtue you can’t afford to lose because the other side of honesty is dishonesty i.e. lying, false truths and lack of trust. There can be no genuine love without honesty only fallacies. No matter what you’ve done, others have done just as much, maybe even more.
Can you be honesty? Will you allow yourself to be transparent when others are not? Don’t allow the dishonesties of your past bind you in your present and ruin your future.
