Seeing Love’s Reflection Makes Me Happy

Gently allowing this post to resonate and support me through this continually grey weather and mood. Namaste.

Dutch bulbs hang softly
decorating my holiday
red rose-bush
who sparkles
sunshine’s radiant
gift of love
for life on earth.
I’m humbly grateful
to be here
& truly see,
to behold
this miracle.

Several weeks of raining
drought healing from the heavens
transforming parched earth
into emerald grass & oak hills.
Even on debris-filled lake
it’s a wonderful gift
paddling into sparkling diamonds
alive in this present moment;
welcoming winter’s
what’s new.

Do not just look for what you want to see, that would be futile.
Do not look for anything, but allow the insight to have a chance to come by itself.
That insight will help liberate you. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

    Good morning Julia, my mind is heavy this morning, my l be allowed to tell you I am going to see a new doctor about changing my meds. This something I having been working on for a long time and it’d finally here. This isn’t easy for anyone. The older you get the harder it gets. I just need some words of encouragement. I know I’m on the rite path, it’s just change and uncertainty. A listen ear is always better then living in your own head

      My heart and experience hears you well. May I ask what the medication is for? I just switched to a new anti-psychotic in December because the other one was making me manic. Yuck. Next month we’ll try another anti-depressant that’s weight neutral I’ve gained 20 lbs on the present one. Not fussy! It is a constant work in progress my friend I know you know this. Kudos to you for recognizing a change is necessary ☺. You could bury your head in the sand but you’re not. This is an achievement in itself. Small steps, small goals help reduce my anxiety and stay away from the big picture which overwhelms me. I give myself credit for just taking a shower! lol. Whatever healthy choice you can make for yourself in the moment is worth celebrating ☺ thank you for sharing…I’m honoured by your truth 💜

    I just got back from seeing the new doctor it wasn’t what I wanted to hear but there is hope it’s going to take time, I’m not good with being patient. But like I said there’s hope, thank you for responding. I knew you would understand
