Enriched through Experience….


~Enriched through experience~

Over the last few months I’ve been able to see so clearly the growth that is coming in me.

For so many years feeling somewhat handicapped by life and unable to fully or properly deal with the hard lessons that came along Ive slowly gained enough courage to want to work things out that go wrong or are difficult or unpleasant.

Usually… I lived with some of the things that caused me pain… Fear held me in place… But gradually I learnt that pain was too high a price for me and that the price of confronting things in a gentle but firm way was far better for me…

We’re always taught to communicate and express but I didn’t gave a voice… I really didn’t. Fear had clammed it and when I look back now… It’s taken the last 22 years to even begin to really reclaim it… In SO many areas of life.

I’ve lost things by using my voice, changes have occur but really they were already changed or they needed to change. I just hadn’t want to acknowledge or accept the changes but I’m learning and I’m being strengthened. I am being enriched….

Just something to think about….

Count my blessings…


ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ.

Are you counting?

I talked to an old friend of mine who is alone, she is recovering from many things, suffering and all the while she is alone.

We have no idea how many people around us may be around us like that….

All I can do is call her, send her a few things, text her, and when she is on my heart I pray for a miracle!

These are things that don’t cost but their value is far above anything she or I could afford.

Just a little encouragement to count my blessings, and to do all the little things that I CAN do for those in need.

Hope this inspires many of you do something for someone today and to always think along these lines.

Just something to think about….

Floating… The test of trust…

.ƸӜƷ. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY ƸӜƷ.

The test of trust…

Since I have been walking again this last few months and sharing my thoughts and ponderings with you, there has been a recurrent them. It’s been all about water, The ocean and the sea.

Image of me floating in the sea is equivalent to the trust game. I may have shared this with you before but when I was a young child at a friends birthday pool party I nearly drowned. At least that’s what it felt like to me.

I managed to get myself out and I never told anyone about this incident. To me this is symbolic of where I learned look after myself, perhaps have a bit of fear and not trust other people.

From this point I refused to learn how to swim at school. I went with the swimming pool but I refused to have lessons to teach me how to swim.

When I was in my early 20s I learnt how to swim with a girlfriend of mine who also was not confident. Perhaps this is symbolic of a point in my life when I began to learn to trust.

What has all this to do with water you may ask? It has to do with my version of the trust game. I believe in reality there are few people we can really trust. People human and so they will let us down.

So my trust game begins at the beach in the water. Floating in the water is my picture of trust. Right now my feet still need to touch the bottom and I can’t simply lay back and flights.

I know it sounds crazy but to this is my picture of trust. And in my picture ocean the water is God. I know I can trust God he is the only one, but I can still can’t float.

So it’s my mental exercise to learn to trust God by floating, even if it is in my mind, the thing at this point is I still can’t let go.

How we feel about God is usually a picture of how we feel about people and experience and habit has taught us that people are not to be trusted.

So I will continue to try to allow myself to float in my mind and learn to trust, I mean float 😊.

Where is trust for you? Who can you really trust?

Just something to think about….
