When times are tough hunker down, say a prayer and wait for Happiness.

“Sometimes you just have to bow your head, say a prayer and weather the storm.” Unknown

I woke up today feeling the best that I have for weeks. Hooray! Am I still in pain? Yup. Am I positive inside today. You betcha! MORE Hoorays!! I think that today’s quote sort of sums up my journey of late … sometimes things are just darn challenging. At those times you need to tuck your head in … say a prayer to whatever gods you believe in … have faith … and wait it out.

A large part of the credit for today’s shift goes to an awesome friend whose kind words helped me to remember that I’m not only a body … I’m also the being-of-light who resides inside … a being known to Capital “L” Life as friend. And as no friend voluntarily leaves another friend to suffer, so too … I believe … is it with Life. I just needed to remember Me … and I needed to remember Its commitment to Us.

I think that all-too-often we tend to get caught up in the world around us thinking that if we can see it, feel it, hear it and taste it then it’s the only thing that’s real. But it’s in the challenging times when The Natural is overwhelming that it’s most important to remember The Invisible.  No-one sees Miss Perky, Ms. Sunshine or even Life but me … and that is only with my inner eyes. But, when I pay attention there they are shining brightly … and loving me through it all .. and what a difference that makes!  I absolutely understand that it’s my inner life and my inner focus that dictates how my day will feel and so … once again … I make the choice for happiness … despite and through life’s challenges.

Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
