Mirror, Mirror

I realize that I make a whole lot of excuses for a whole bunch of things. The first time someone said this to me I became argumentative and defensive. I didn’t want to see myself as that person, when in fact, that’s who I am. I create excuses for my attitude; I justify my actions, and refuse to acknowledge this as an aspect of my personality. In moments like these, I refuse to see myself from any vantage point other than my own. This has been disastrous. I’ve created a one-dimensional view of my life, which has lead to stagnation and contentment.
There are an infinite amount of perspectives that exist in the world. Each individual has a unique perspective based on their reality and the things that they experience within that reality.

Fancy Me Not

I don’t take great care of myself. I spend time caring for everyone else, but don’t spend nearly as much time caring for myself.

Soulful Sundays

There are many children born into this world everyday. In fact, it is estimated that approximately 360,000 babies are born daily. Unfortunately all of these babies are not met with celebratory tears and a room filled with loved. Some babies are born into families filled with anger, frustration, and brokenness.
Millions of children live in unloving homes with caregivers that do not shower them with the love and affection that they need. Today let’s remember “The Lonely Child,” that did not ask to be born into this world, but still has a greater purpose that he/she has yet to discover. Sending lots of light and love to all the children in the world because just as much as we need love as adults, children need it ten times more!
Happy Sunday!!
