CURVE BALLS with love FROM PARIS from Jay!

This has been on my mind this past week……..

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, and sometimes we find ourselves in situations that we cannot change. It can be frustrating and disheartening, but it’s important to remember that these challenges are not meant to defeat us, but to inspire us to change ourselves. When we face adversity, it’s an opportunity to grow, evolve, and transform into a better version of ourselves. It’s part of the essence of life, and it’s what makes us resilient and adaptable. By embracing change and committing to personal growth, we can overcome any obstacle and live a life that is rich, fulfilling, and meaningful. So when life throws you a curveball, don’t despair – instead, take it as a challenge to change yourself and become the best possible version of you.

I am realizing at this late date that I was wrong about most things and thought I knew what was right! I was wrong. Oops

And I have been a Pollyanna all my life and I am tired. I looked for that pony and tried to be Honey bunch. I need someone else to carry the torch for awhile.

I want to live and not die but I need help.

A thought ….. maybe I need to let go !

Letting Go…

To let go isn’t to forget, not to think about, or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret.

Letting go isn’t winning, and it isn’t losing. It’s not about pride, and it’s not about how you appear, and it’s not obsessing or dwelling on the past.

Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts, and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt, or sadness. It’s not giving in or giving up.

Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not defeat. 

To let go is to cherish memories, and overcome and move on. It’s having an open mind and confidence in the future.

Letting go is accepting. It’s learning and experiencing and growing.

To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had, and all that you will soon again.

Letting go is having the courage to accept change, and the strength to keep moving.

Letting go is growing up. It’s realizing that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy.

To let go is to open a door, and to clear a path, and to set you free.

Another thought…. I don’t know how to Not be a Pollyanna!

The Ever-Unfolding Rose. Cracked open. It’s happening for you, not to you…

I have always loved roses.

The challenge of life is to keep your heart open when you most want to close it. To let life crack you open. To open through hurt and loss. To allow what is falling away to fall away. 

Being human is a courageous act. A life well-lived is full of losses and tragedies, as much as triumphs and adventures. Wherever you find yourself at the moment, life is coaxing you to keep your heart open no matter how much it hurts. To continually unfold. To let life crack you open. 💫

Perhaps you are going through a difficult time right now. Instead of cursing the difficulty, see it as a blessing. To open yourself up to the truth that, perhaps, as hard as it may be, life is happening for you, not to you. And one day, in the not-too-distant future, you may just bless the thing that broke you down and cracked you open because the world needs you open. 

Now is the time to go gently. To treat yourself like a tender, sweet baby. To wrap yourself up in a blanket and trust that the Mother has you cradled in her arms. The seas may not all be smooth sailing, but you are safe and you are held. One day, not too far from today, you will look back at the transformation and be blown away by the poetry of life.

Everything is going to be OK. 💜

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”- Marie Curie–
