Here’s the Thing … Collage Wisdom #3

20181017_063322_HDRWhat a relief!

It’s so easy to worry.  Look back with regrets.  Woulda, coulda, shoulda.  The best thing about looking back, is the wisdom I’ve gained to move forward.  It’s true – every situation has had Divine Timing.  Mind you, I did not/do not care BEING in certain life events, but when they were most difficult, Earth Angels came in at just the right moments.  They helped me walk through tough stuff with divorce, depression and single parenting.  I’ve learned much, going through the muck.  I’m stronger than I ever thought I’d be.  I’m braver.  The Universe does know exactly what it is doing and an incredible teacher.  I have to take ownership in playing my role in it.  (Not scoring 5 Stars is a reality check!  Yes, I’ll admit to less than stellar performances.)  Breathing helps, every single time!  My asking for help, being willing to change my way of thinking, being adventurous enough to try new things … like dating, for example, were keys to opening doors to new life … and believe happiness would greet me.

The Universe is still playing with me on the dating thing … none-the-less, my life is filled with happiness, because there are lots of doors in life to open, and I’m twisting a lot of knobs!!  Not all of them open.  I respect that now.  I don’t try to bust or jiggle them open anymore.  I’ve noticed …  light, from a door cracked open in the dark – is amazingly bright.  Look at the stars and the moon on a partly cloudy night – see how the light ebbs and flows with banks of clouds, or wisps … as the earth faithfully turns.  It’s taking time to notice a door is actually open … and being willing to walk through it and … play!

Sweetness of friendship

Friendships begin at a young age … expanding out from the familiarity of family, into a new realm of the unknown.  Yet, thankfully, when we trust this unknown, our circle of people grows … our circle of friends.

Friendship is both tears and laughter.  The silly little things that can get us laughing so hard we pee our pants, and have tears streaming down our faces, as we clutch our stomachs and catch our breath, to losing someone we love and our hearts are breaking.  It’s the sweetness of the friendship = love, that makes it so.  Would we trade it in?  Wish we never had shared the laughter and the tears, for however long it lasted?  Not me.  You?

Friendship is being vulnerable and willing to trust.  That breaking heart thing?  Yep, anytime we open ourselves up … expose who we are with all our warts and loveliness, we let the light of who we are shine and we’re accepted and loved – YAY – or not, we’re judged for our warts – BOO – (but then it’s not true friendship, is it?) … our hearts can break.  Would we rather not be vulnerable for fear of someone’s judgement of us?  Or, perhaps, trust and be gifted with a most amazing friendship when we’re recognized for the  light within us rather than the warts?  I’ll go for it.  You?

There’s an ebb and flow with friendships.  Sometimes we give.  Sometimes we take. Sometimes we’re the student.  Sometimes we’re the teacher.  We live, grow, and change throughout the years.  Sometimes, as we grow, we take a turn that our friends do not. Then, it’s letting go and trusting the new path will bring new friends.  Sweet.  It’s how life works.  Trust me!

Friendship doesn’t cost a penny … yet … friendship is priceless.   Let’s celebrate our friendships, let’s laugh and share wonderful times together.   Let’s experience the little things in the dew, and tomorrow our hearts will awake in the morning, refreshed.

Friendship.

How sweet it is.
