it is fine to paddle your own canoe. just be sure you know where you are going. Mercia Tapping

I think it is immensely reassuring if you have some sense of direction in life. There is nothing worse than letting life idly float by with no sense of purpose or direction. It does of course take some inner reflection to figure out your intended path but it is worth the effort.

when the storm has passed, may you find a clear and tranquil morning. Mercia Tapping

When I saw this boat I was struck by the peacefulness of the setting; yet with water in the bottom showed it had endured some stormy weather. If you are in a storm, I hope it will soon pass.

may the waves gently wash away your grief until you find peace. Mercia Tapping

Some of you are feeling the loss of loved ones and the grief that goes with it. There is no timetable for grief, and we never forget our loved ones in heaven. But the really painful part of grief can subside into a dull ache in the background, as we learn to accept reality and find peace.

Life Throws Down Its Gauntlet

Filed in Courage, Hope, Inspirational, Life by on July 28, 2016

life throws down its gauntlet of challenges. the true warrior picks up that gauntlet to fight. Mercia Tapping

There have been times when I have felt that if I got thrown one more challenge in life, I would just throw in the towel and succumb to despair. I think everyone has a breaking point and in the past I came pretty close to mine. What I always did after a good night’s sleep is ask myself whether I truly wanted to give up. The answer was always no, and so I picked up that sword to fight on until the crisis finally passed.

ihave you noticed that clouds, fog and rain all pass with time and the sun finally comes out? Mercia Tapping

At least here in New England the weather is always changing, sometimes tor the better and sometimes for the worse. When it is overly hot or cold, I know that there will be a break in the weather. Perhaps not as soon as I would like, but it always comes. It is the same with life isn’t it?

So remember that nothing bad lasts forever.

end your day with thoughts of gratitude and you will be smiling in your dreams. Mercia Tapping

Each day presents new challenges and it is easy to dwell on the things that have gone wrong. And we can thus go to bed feeling discontented and disappointed with life. But a practice that will bring you more peace, is to let your mind dwell on the things in your life for which you are grateful. You will sleep the better for it.

Push Open That Door

push open that door to a new chapter of your life. Mercia Tapping

Our lives have passages or chapters, and sometimes we know we are in transition between one of them. We know what we want, but we aren’t quite there yet. It just requires a bit more pushing to make it happen. Keep pushing.

The Best Things

the best things come in little packages. enjoy! Mercia Tapping

As I have gotten older, I see that the best gifts in life are the smallest, simplest and most thoughtful. When I was an impoverished student, I made chocolate rum balls for my friends and family. Now my offerings are healthier, but remember the wisdom “It is the thought that counts”.

Be A Beacon Of Light

be a beacon of light and others will be drawn to you. Mercia Tapping

I have a dear friend who is always thinking and doing tor other people. She is the most unselfish person I know. Small wonder that she is never lonely and draws people to her. She does not have an easy life, but it does not stop her from thinking of how to stretch out a hand to another. We could all learn from this.
