“All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Just as the four seasons come and go…
Nature’s children know her form.
We, too, will find our footing on firm soil
And grow strong with the changing landscape
Trusting all will fall into its rightful, rhythmic place
Like the seasons…
We can start over by trusting the process, by paying attention to the gentle promptings in our lives, by listening to our instincts, and by staying aware of our blessings. More below!
“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” Nido Qubein
Circumstances open the door to change…
I can trust the shift or recoil.
It is better to trust and hold unto hope…
It is best to not to give in to fear and loss.
New pathways are forging ahead.
Start here. Start anywhere. Start and trust… Three things that have helped me and continue to offer me sustenance are: Contemplation. Meditation. Prayer. Stay Inspired. Have a blessed day and thank you for stopping by!
*Please bear with me as I continue to catch up on your blogs. Thank you all for your patience!
Happy 2013! This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Writing Challenge: Starting Over. In this week’s writing challenge, we’re asking you to write a short piece of creative writing (fiction/poetry/prose poetry/freeform mindjazz/whatever floats your boat) on the theme of Starting Over.
Positive Motivation Tip: In nature, starting over is a given; it comes with each seasonal change and ecosystem shift. Learn from her gift of trust… ♥HAPPY 2013!♥
