Fight or Flight...

Living in a constant state
of "fight or flight" drains you
of all energy to create
and to appreciate the moment.

Building Bridges....

life is a raging river
full of cascading waterfalls
rushing over jagged rocks
with time polishing them smooth
eventually
emptying into calm ponds
God is the ocean
we are the tiny tributaries
working our way back to the ocean
we are flexible in spirit
yet rigid in flesh
we keep returning
to the familar
 dysfunctional
 suspension bridge
with frayed ropes 
and missing planks
instead of trusting ourselves
to venture on a new path
of the sturdy log
firm and wide...waiting....
for us to build hand rails
as we work our way across.

"The greatest gift you can give to me
is to seek me out
accept me as I am
be with me in any given moment
and listen with your heart."

6.  Find the positive and the humor in as much as I can.

7.  Listen with my heart instead of my ears.

Boundaries and Self Reliance

Healthy and solid relationships
each stand alone but are united;
not leaning upon the other.
Lop-sided responsibility
becomes habit
and one morning, you awake
and there is a subtle uncertainty
doubting your abilities
because you have become
so out of practice...
Keeping boundaries and self reliance
is as important as hygiene, exercise,
eating right and brushing your teeth.
