It's Never Or Now



"Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it's holy ground. There's no greater investment." -Stephen Covey


When change happens, it sometimes hits us pretty hard. We look around and see those around us figuring it out, finding their niche, living their life plan. I’ve been through a lot of change in my life and sometimes jumped track and gone a totally different direction than where I was headed. There’s a song that touched my heart because I see a lot of my past in it.


Unbreakable*

I know how everyone else's life

Is supposed to fly by

Then someone turns and says

What about you?

And I stand here

Mouth open

Mind blank

This should have all worked itself out by now

The map of my life should be clear and precise

With little red dashes and circles so nice

Showing roadblocks

And landmines

Oh, I am not unbreakable

I am breaking right now

Maybe everyone can't have the dream

Maybe everyone can't kiss the frog

Maybe it'll be me and a dog

And the little stuffed dolphins on the floor

And a little dog door

Oh, I am not unbreakable

I am breaking right now

I need to be unbreakable

Somehow, it's never

Or now.


Dear Angels, that moment in our lives when we realize that it is “never or now” is what I describe as the crossroads, or the moment of truth. It is when we take a good hard look inside. All the things that we go through are simply the chisel pounding into us and shaping us, yet we cannot bear to look at ourselves while this is happening. It is afterward that we stand raw and vulnerable. It is in that moment that we either pick ourselves up off the floor and move forward or remain there. Whatever the decision is, we are the one making it and no one else. We are not victims. We are the outcome of our choices.

Dear Ones, we understand that it is hard to envision joy when you are in the midst of trauma. You need to experience whatever is presenting itself to you in the now. Ignoring it or diminishing the impact of the experience will only prolong your healing. Every experience is important. When you are ready, you will know when it is time for you to take action. You will feel it deep inside like smoldering lava in the belly of a volcano. No one can prepare you for the journey as it is yours alone. Others can hold your hand and encourage you, but only you can make the decision about how to live your life and what path you will take to complete your healing. When it is your time to take that now journey, you will not be abandoned. You have a legion of angels helping you over the hot coals. Draw on our strength when you feel the sting of the fire. We will not let you fall.


Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.


Today, I promise to remember that I have all the support I need for the journey.
