When Worlds Collide ~ Just Do Our Best

 

J6.jpg

I am so sorry for my absence! Life and health issues have caught up with me a bit, and I have had to leave aside some things for a moment. I miss posting and you all so much! I will admit my energy has been low and inspiration has been scarce with so much going on. But I absolutely Love…and it gives me so much Positive Energy and Joy…to see you still coming and reading. And the posts you are reading…I am so glad you are finding them and hope that they are helping you just a little bit to navigate our increasingly crazy lives and worlds*.

And, I Do believe we have to keep at it and, no matter what, we must not let go of Hope and our vision for a better world. Sometimes, the road to the destination is paved with rocks and potholes and dips and challenges. We still must carry on and hold our vision close and give it Power and Energy. Some days…that is easier said than done. And at the end of the day…all we can do…is Just Do Our Best.

Take one day at a time…and Just Do Our Best.

Try to look for the best in each day. There IS magic out there…and in our worlds.

Let us try not to expect ourselves to handle every day perfectly. It is chaos out there. Just Do Our Best.

*I AM SO GRATEFUL TO ALL OF YOU WHO COME HERE TO READ MY HUMBLE WORDS, HOPEFULLY FINDING SOME COMFORT OR INSPIRATION THAT HELPS THE DAY GO BY IN A MORE POSITIVE WAY. YOU WARM MY HEART AND SOUL!! AND THAT HELPS MY DAY GO BY IN A MORE POSITIVE WAY! THANK YOU!!

You Are Important ~ Don’t Forget That ~ Repost

 

M1.jpg

In this swirling pool of negativity and waves of uncertainty, confusion, and vitriol…it is very easy to be swept away from ourselves. It pulls on our focus and emotions…and soon we are swimming away from that which is and should be important in our own lives, our own worlds. And we begin to feel helpless and ineffectual and unimportant. But that is not the truth. Never forget…

M2.jpg

EVERYONE matters and is an important and essential cog in the wheel of life and the world. No matter what you might hear “out there”.

M3.jpg

It is my heartfelt wish that these words sink in to your soul today and remind you…no matter how you are feeling…that You are important and have a purpose…just by being You.

We receive such negative energy and so much static feedback in our days lately…let this be the counter message that reminds you that you do not have to believe in all of that. You can believe in YOU!

For Mother’s Day Weekend

“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.”  ~ Gail Tsukiyama

“If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where a prayer has not already been.”  ~ Robert Brault

Sweater, n. Garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly.”  ~ Ambrose Bierce

“There’s no bitch on earth like a mother frightened for her kids.”  ~ Stephen King

“When your mother asks, “Do you want a piece of advice?” it’s a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.”  ~ Erma Bombeck

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~ Washington Irving

from The Desk of MarDrag:

As we enter a weekend that leads to Mother’s Day on Sunday, today’s post pays homage to those special and ever enduring loves of our lives…our Mothers…of which I am one. All of the above quotes state so well the attributes of Mothers and embraces the wide variety of the different characters we take on to handle, resolve, or be there in all the different situations and circumstances we are faced with every day. And we would not have it any other way.

M4.jpg

We are all the things our families and loved ones need us to be…at any given moment…and our love is boundless. So too, is our forgiveness, and ability to look deeply and, even at the toughest moment, still love.

A Mothers love is vast…our capacity to endure limitless…and our protection impenetrable.

M5.png

So, let us honor ALL the Mothers, Step Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Grandmothers, Great Grandmothers, Mothers In Law, Daughter Mothers, Mothers of the Animal Children and Inner Mothers and CareTaker Mothers…for from them all springs Life and Love…and with that Hope. Let us Nurture every Mother as she has Nurtured us. And let us not forget to honor that one last Mother on the list…our Mother Earth…who hangs in the heavens and supports us, just so we can have Life.

BLESSINGS AND LOVE TO ALL MOTHERS AND MOTHER FIGURES!

MAY YOU HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND!

Do You Believe In Magic? ~ Repost

 

M2.jpg

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”  ~ Ronald Dahl

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”  ~ W.B. Yeats

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”  ~ Laini Taylor

“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”  ~ Nora Roberts

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.” ~ Goethe

“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”  ~ Charles de Lint

M7.jpg

from the Desk of MarDrag:

Do you believe in Magic? Do you believe there is energy around us, pulsing and moving and creating? Do you believe in the Magic of Belief? Or the Magic of Love…or the Magic of the Heart and the Mind?

I think, that in this chaotic and sometimes distressing world, we can lose sight of the Magic that exists, that Magic we believed in and saw in the world around us, as a child. That Magic that we created our dreams with. A child sees with unclouded eyes, with innocence that what it sees is undoubtedly true and real, even in their imagination. That is how dreams are born and manifest.  As we grow and experience more of the world, and its harshness, we lose so much of that innocence and ability to believe that there IS Magic all around us and that we can have it in our lives. If we just recognize it as we look at the Magic of Nature. Or listen to the Magic of Music. Or feel the Magic of falling in love.

M6.jpg

But, there is also the Magic of Will, of Belief, of the Heart and of the Glowing Light within us that helps us create the life that we so desire. Or Will a solution to a problem to manifest. Or have the conviction that something we desire will come to us. Or even just the Magic of a Smile, to lighten someone’s day.

M1.jpg

Today, if even just for a moment, look around you and see if you can spot a bit of Magic and focus on that, draw it to you, feel the tingle of that something that is outside all practical thought. Just for a bit, open that part of yourself that dares to see past the severity of life to the enchantment and charm of possibilities when you tap into the Magic of Life. It is there. That glittering sense that there is so much more to what we see than what we see.

M3.jpg

Magic is everywhere…don’t forget to look. And when you look…Believe in what you see. And when you Believe…amazing things will happen.
