I found these sayings on Journey into me.  They really resonate as affirmations to me.  Not only should we pay attentions to what God tells us in His Word. We also need to pay attention to what we tell ourselves.  What we tell ourselves about ourselves can totally erase what God is trying to tell us in His word if we are not careful.  I am always at practice when it comes to that.  I always try to go back to what God thinks of me.  It is important as well what others say yet only to a certain point and it depends on what it is about…haha!  I am hoping these will also resonate with you and you will find some comfort in them.

“You create your own happiness.”

“Gives thanks daily for the life you have now, it is a gift, treasure it.”

“Living in the moment is not always easy, however I am doing my best to live in the present.”

“I believe in happiness even when things go wrong.”

“Don’t let the world harden your heart.”

“You create your own happiness.”

“Gives thanks daily for the life you have now, it is a gift, treasure it.”

I also have a video to share with all of you.  I was unable to get this video to embed properly so I put the link here for you to hook into the video.  This is definitely worth the extra couple of minutes it will take for you to do this.  You will be amazed:

This video pretty much says it all.

Have an amazing week!

I really tried to do some in depth research this past week.  I watched a lot of videos and read a lot of poetry.  Definitely have some material for the next few weeks.  I really have been so inspired.

What I am going to share with you today are some very unique things that caught my eye.  The first one is called Hospital Window.  It gives us something to think about and how far would we go to love others.  To go out of our way to give someone something they desperately needed.  We all need to be loved.  We also need to feel needed.  I believe we see both things in this video.

  

Here is a video that really pricked my heart and reminded me to love not judge.  As people don’t live in my shoes (a son with Downs syndrome as well as severly Autistic, as well as having FM) I don’t live in your shoes.  In this life will be suffering. We can work to ease each others burdens.  A Blog is not only a place for us to vent and tell our sides of our stories and how we live; or a journal.  It is a community where we can reach out and care for one another.

I actually was going to post a different video for the last video.  I saw this on the YouTube side bar and wanted to watch it.  I felt it went along with what our other videos were showing.  It is about including others in all things and not excluding them because they are different.

If my Blog Theme will let me I will try and post the video I had planned on showing.  You will get a laugh and really enjoy some great music.  Cant tell you what kind.  I would totally give away the punch line….

So I hope you enjoyed Tuesday’s Treasures.  I hope you enjoyed the videos.  Let me know what you think.  Let me know how it touched you or even if it did at all.  I am excited for the rest of the week.  I know this has nothing to do with the subject of this post yet just a reminder that we can choose how to respond to situations.  Also, we can choose to be happy no matter what is happening.  It takes tons of practice and I am certainly at the practicing stage.  Take care and I will see you next week.

This week I wanted to look for something to share that really would make me think.  To think in ways that could possibly change my life for the positive. I have a tendency to be a deep person sometimes.  Sometimes such a deep thinker that it is impossible to form words to explain what my heart/Soul is trying to say.  It confuses other people sometimes. Yet sometimes I find in this deep thought is where a life change might begin to form.  So here is some poetry and a video that I found this week that moved me in a deep thoughtful way.  I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did!

 

Underneath the rubble

lies a pocket of Hope

and

a

strong

Will

to

survive….

This is an amazing video short on Steve Jobs.  Stick with it until the end.  The things he has to say will move you.  Hopefully it will move you to action to act on your mission or if you do not know what your mission is for you to find it.  It certainly inspired me.

Change.

Standard

the smell is in the air

like a forgotten happiness

that I’m dying to grasp

the vision of the unknown

down an infinite winding road

touching the tainted surface

as we march towards the dark

hand in hand

This Poem is from the Blog called Words Are Deadly.  Here is the link.  There is some amazing poetry to be read here:   http://wordsaredeadly.wordpress.com/2014/12/28/change/

Sometimes change feels as though we are walking in the dark.  It is scary to walk from the light into the dark.  Like Steve Jobs said we have to trust that the dots will connect.  Those of us who have spirituality in our lives are lucky as we have a place to draw strength from.  For me I draw strength from Prayer and the Word of God.  I also find strength in sharing with those special friends the ones that you have learned you can trust and listening and pondering on what they have shared with me.  The dots sooner or later will connect and then we move on.

I thrive on growing and learning new things.  Through many trials I have come to learn not to fear change.  I try to now look at it as an adventure.  Some changes are more difficult than others.  It can be stressful.  Those of us with Chronic Pain issues try to manage the stress part of all of this. FM is stress driven so the higher the stress the more pain or fatigue that happens.  For me I may have a bit more pain while the stress is going on yet for me the greater amount of pain and fatigue comes after the stress is over with.  I have learned to pace myself better.  Also, I am in the learning process that I can choose how to respond.  I can be happy no matter what my circumstances.  That one is so enlightening for me.

Take care this week you all and I will do some more looking around the neighborhood for some more wonderful Treasures.
