Good Morning!

Another thought about CHOICES.

Gentle Breeze

A gentle breeze was blowing.

Yesterday began for me as one of ‘those’ days when it seems like everything I touched fell to pieces or dropped off.    Computers, phones, camera and all things technical decided to all go ‘on the blink’. money hassles, family issues etc etc. STOP!  Life will always be full of ‘stuff’.   I chose for one brief moment in time to choose to breathe.

It sounds too simple but WOW did it work for me yesterday.   I stood outside.   There was a gentle breeze.    I breathed in deeply and chose to breathe in PEACE, Beauty, Love, Kindness, Breath of God, Hope.

I imbibed it right into my ‘inner person’.   Then I breathed ‘out’.   I chose to breathe out and actively   disperse into the atmosphere………(surrender to God) …… all the ‘stuff’ of the day.   irritation, annoyances, frustrations, anger, self-pity, lack, wants and ‘unnecessary’ concerns.

For me it worked far better than I believed possible. Physically I breathed in and out and felt refreshed.   Spiritually I was energised. but Mentally…… it was as if a whole jumble of cobwebs had been blown away.   Emotionally…absolutely PEACE. 

The awful ‘feeling’ this day is ‘yuck’ was gone.    I breathed in so much beauty and gratitude there was no space at all left for the other things.

Enjoy your day!   Make a difference to another life!


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.

    This is so true Faye! So many times in a day we stress out but it’s a good idea to step back, because life is bigger than us and it’s not all about us.
    Great post ^_^
