By continuing to focus on me and loving mys of so that I can continue with not needing others to make me happy.
I am now an “empty nester” after being a single parent for many years and the new situation provides me with more time to devote to work and extracurricular studies, and related accomplishments.
This morning I raised my arms up as high and wide as they could go. My fingers stretching upwards, higher and higher, up and up until and finally I got a little bit of that heaven into my heart, welcoming and open, rising to the occasion and what the new day will bring.
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: if we have been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozled has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan, power over you, you almost never get it back.” Carl Sagan
Stepping away from the bamboozle.
Being dumped by my partner?…
Oh dear, Dear Trinity 🙁
Warm wishes to you – 🙂
The next moment invites to spread my wings and let me fall in to it.
Thanks for that comment. It is good for me to remember, too.
A literal outing with metaphorical relevance to the question: I’m going to a wildlife refuge today that’s full of birds. We moved to a new town in fall of 2020 and have been exploring slowly. Today’s outing is because I suggested to my husband that we have 15 days of dates surrounding our 15th wedding anniversary, which is July 7. Yesterday it was a bike ride to a delicious brunch, today it’s the wildlife refuge, and who knows what tomorrow will bring?
I love that. How special. Enjoy that time with him! Blessings on all the events!
I am led to spread my wings these last few days to stand with women who’ve lost their voices for access to health care. I’m wearing black this 4th (in US). Not all are free. I know this may make some uncomfortable on this site, I’ll not forget my devout mother sharing stories of friends in 1940’s dying in back alleyways.
Thank you, Carla
Thank you for this, Carla.
Relaxing today, my wings are chilling. Happy 4th of July everyone:)
I have been looking at a group in our church, and thinking I may be of service to them. For now, I will continue to investigate how I could help, and if I think, after more reflection, it would be a good fit, I will join and become active. But first, before I spread my wings there, I will check it out a little more….
relax into uncertainty
I heard a young teenage boy say you have to be okay with not knowing, what a gift to learn so young.
Truthfully, I am not, and that is just fine with me. At this stage in my life, and building on the metaphor of the moment, I get to choose when I take flight, and why, and most especially, where I will land.
I am comfortable with today’s Daily Question, though it strikes me that there’s a hidden “should” element at play here also. Some people may read the question and think, “What’s wrong with me?” or, “I should be more engaged and out there.” Overall, this site does a very good job at avoiding blaming statements, but every now and then hidden, and unintentional, underlying meanings slip in, which in my view points to our nature as humans and nothing more.
By sharing with others the struggles and challenges that I have been through and showing them that they too can go through them and grow through them. By doing this I also get to understand myself more and accept myself more.
With the sun rising on this new day, I am invited to let go of the past and grasp all of the endless possibilities and opportunities that are offered today.
