Tiny little dots

 

Have you ever looked closely at a comic picture? The picture is made up of thousands of tiny dots. Up close it doesn’t look like much, yet step back and view the whole picture, and the scene comes to life.

Life can be like this too at times. Often we are so rushed that we end up only looking at each tiny dot on its own. We forget about the back story and we forget about the other dots that make the picture whole. We are quick to make judgements based on appearances alone.

Everyone is woven together into one big picture. Each of us is a dot in the masterpiece of life. Together, we make a beautiful piece of art.

Miracles

Sometimes God sends miracles that seem to be so small that you may not notice them right away…but they will add up to making big positive changes for you. – Doreen Virtue

Dreams

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney

The Judge

Who are you to judge the life I live? I am not perfect and I don’t have to be! Before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean. – Bob Marley

Awaken Yourself

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself.

If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself.

Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.

– Lao Tzu

The Attitude of Gratitude

American Thanksgiving has recently passed, although we should make sure we are grateful everyday, and not just one day a year. This week there have been serveral things I have been grateful for. We had a big snow storm roll through the prairies this week and with it the temperatures plumetted. I was grateful for a snow day, as my car (which I nicknamed Santa’s sleigh) was in the shop. We braved the weather and picked it up in time to have for our winter driving.

I was also grateful to have the majority of our basement insulation finished, and also grateful for our furnace. There are still many people in our community who are without at least insulation, and a few still without furnaces. I am also grateful to be in my own home.

Whenever I have felt like I’ve been dipping into a downward spiral I start going through a gratitude list. Even if it only one small thing I can think of, it can often times turn a bad day into a good day. A good friend of mine was really struggling this week and was heading deeper into that spiral. I told her to think of at least one little thing to be grateful for. Even if it is something silly one of her kids did. And it helps.

Too often we forget to be grateful for the simple things. Even being grateful for being alive. We are where we need to be in each moment of time.

Hard Knox

“I get knocked down, but I get up again, ain’t never gonna keep me down…” – Tubthumping, Chumbawamba

Sometimes you need to take a hard knox approach to life. If life knocks you down, you need to get back up and start living again.

To take a more zen like, compassionate approach to life, if someone does you wrong, you need to bite your tongue and move on.

Stop dwelling on what cannot be unchanged. Stop holding a grudge. Be grateful for the little bit of help you do receive, even if you have to re-do the work to your standards.

Move on, move on, move on!

“Don’t look back, you’re life is not going that way!”
