I am glad you decided to stop by and visit with me. I am excited about our times together. You really are a very special person. In several of our recent visits, we have considered, being ourselves, being positive, taking risks, and living our destiny. Today, I want to share a story with you about a man who was once so consumed about what others thought of him, that he spent much of his time taking other people’s temperatures (emotionally speaking) to determine how he was doing in life. Life to him was a continual challenge, but not in a healthy way. His ability to see beyond the expectation’s that each temperature demanded of him was impaired. He became a reactor, rather than an active participant in his own life. He became a human doing rather than allowing himself to just be.
And then one day, he met an individual who encouraged him to start on a new journey. He was told that the new journey would reveal a freedom that he had never known. He decided to take the risk. As he started on this new journey, his eyes were opened. He began to realize that this new journey would enable him to experience life in a way far beyond his wildest imagination. As a result, he began considering the possibilities.
In my repose, I find peace. Tranquillity is mine. I am free to move about with ease, unencumbered by control. I am surrounded by an ambiance of the conceivable. My heart echoes forth with jubilation as I consider the imaginable. I am not limited by the voice of conjecture or speculation. Instead, I find that wonder expands into full view as I focus on the feasible. Black and white thinking does not have to confine me. In reality, my world resonates with many colors. Vibrancy is the standard that calls to me. Autonomy is mine.
These colors draw me close to the light of God compassion. I run faster toward the light of God’s love, knowing that in that place I will find hope. In that place, I find comfort. My spiritual legs are strengthened and I find courage. Courage inspires me to not lose hope so I keep walking.
Determined, I am energized by the conceivable. New dimensions are revealed to me and I marvel. Clarity is achieved and I run with enthusiasm. I find myself tapping into what was previously unknown. I actively search for and accept all viable options. My awareness is not daunted by cynicism, nor do I allow the critics to dampen my zeal. I am not undermined by the bothersome; but am invigorated by the attainable. Life calls to me and I am animated. I do not lag behind but press forward. I am thereby rewarded with new ideas. My eyes are opened and I stand in awe.
