Hope

The sun rises each morning.
Ready or not
light and rays
stretch out.

A warm blanket of
Hope
comforting those ready
to receive.

Hope is there
waiting on the porch
to be welcomed in.

Hope sees opportunity.

Knock, knock!
Are you in there?

Don’t you dare leave me
on the porch-

Wait,
Wait,
Waiting
To be invited in.

The inviting is surrender.

Don’t let fear
be a gatekeeper
Don’t let fear
block the door.

Don’t you see?
Hope is right on the other side.

Choose to open the door.

Let her in.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether the past is an hour ago or decades, second thoughts only begets guilt or regret. Whether observing others in a superficial or competitive light, comparison only begets inferiority or envy. I’m reminded neither living in the past, nor observing others is conducive to creating value. Here’s to honoring gifts of the present and fostering happiness.

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…This week I had a case of the repeats. It is a thang. A case of overthinking. A case of caring, of worrying, and of feeling guilty about weight that isn’t mine to carry. I’m reminded everything isn’t equally important and I can’t be all things to all people. Shocker. I can only be me; doing the best I can with what I have. Here’s to putting a stopgap on shoulding on myself, to feeling “bad,” and to worrying. I’m pressing the reset button once again!

Sunday Quotes, 02/02/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks I’ve been reminded once again in moments of darkness there is always light. The blinders may obscure perspective, but one must have faith sunshine is there. Some shadows left behind are just a blink; barely acknowledged. Others are long and lingering; slow growing roots. We each live our own unique journey. To have a comparative or competitive mindset is poisonous. Here’s to staying in my lane, holding my head high, and continuing to face the sunshine.
