Take a little time to LOOK UP and also LOOK OUT

GOOD MORNING!  Today is like a pivot day in the week. Here it is Wednesday.  Once upon a time Wednesdays were for me the ‘safety day ‘  I had survived (not always successfully)  the first days.  The children were still alive and my husband still loved me (I hoped).                  early views 007    I sincerely hoped I would make the weekend.  Exhausted with trying to do it ALL I pushed on to week’s end.

  Balance became my true safety guide.

          I absolutely KNEW I needed to lead a balanced life or there would be no time to live.  It would be all about survival!

       As human beings we are in five dimensions.

 1. emotional 2. physical 3 social 4. spiritual 5. mental.

Everyone needs to determine how where and in what order they balance these elements.

I’m still learning and will all life long.  In the physical for example – movement and  using the body is vital BUT adequate rest and sleep is equally important.

If  only one of the above takes over or dominates the others our life can become out of whack.  In the process we cannot function in all five areas the way we could.

HAVE A BRILLIANT DAY, EVERYONE.  Think about those five dimensions to being human. (It comes from a scientific research site).   Which one of in your life is ‘out of balance’?

One key is vital – never forget each day to look above the square in which you live – It’s amazing that even a simple sky can sooth the spirit.  Then look out – your window may show a blank wall but looking closer could show a crack and that crack a pattern. Light indeed gives a different perspective.

All this day entails, family, children, social networking, pressures of work and home.  Stop Look! Personally I would add PRAY —–The spiritual is where each person has to find their Truth and their Home.   I’ve found mine.  Everyone needs to find the BALANCE in ALL FIVE areas. You too can find yours.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
