Listen To The Whispers

Filed in Courage, God, Inspirational, Life by on August 31, 2016

listen to the whispers from the universe, because they wil tell you your truth. Mercia Tapping

How many of us ignore that tiny inner voice which threatens to tell us our truth? Perhaps the truth is uncomfortable and would mean us taking courageous actions for which we do not feel ready. I think listening to a higher power, in whatever form yours may take, means clearing ones mind, being still and waiting for the answers to come to you. Sometimes it means paying attention to what others are saying, as they reflect back to you who you are at your essence. Listen.

No Matter How Fierce And Black The Storm

no matter how fierce and black the storm, brighter days lie ahead for you. Mercia Tapping

I think it is very hard when you are in the emotional and physical misery of a storm in your life, to imagine that it will ever end, and you will have the strength to survive, and come out the other side. Surviving a storm involves blocking and tackling one day at a time. I had seven years of unending storms, and then thanks be to God, the misery was over. Never give up hope that brighter days are in store for you.

Life Is Not A Dress Rehearsal

life is not a dress rehearsal. it is your one and only performance. Mercia Tapping

When I was younger, I had no concept and neither did I care to know, that life was finite. I am sure that there were many times that I was careless about how I spent my time. Now having conquered a very serious illness, I know better; every day and moment counts. So each day as I start the day over breakfast, I contemplate how to spend my time wisely, because life as I know it can change in an instant.

Do As You Would Be Done By

Filed in God, Health, Inspirational, Life by on August 28, 2016

do as you would be done by and life will hold endless joy. Mercia Tapping

The question I ask myself all the time when interacting with people is ” How would you like to be treated if the situations were reversed?”. It has helped me curb the sharper side of my tongue both in private and public. Most people would not even guess there is a sharper side lurking. It has also helped me lend a hand to another in need, even though it may not be particularly convenient. It encourages me to ask about the health of others because I know it feels good that someone cares enough to ask.

I don’t think much about the above actions or congratulate myself, it is a way of life. But there is a saying “What goes around… ” And I confess that when others look after me in some way, I have a smile that goes deep to my toes.

So consider this before you act.

Be Brave My Friend

be brave my friend because at the edge of the forest of darkness, there will be light again. Pamela Gleeson

If you looked at a map of this earth, even the largest and thickest of forests have boundaries. They come to an end. So sometimes, despite not feeling like it, there is nothing for it but to hike straight through that forest. Then you will be in the light again. I wish there was an easier way, like an air lift! But sadly, that doesn’t seem to be the way out for most of us.

Negative Thoughts Create Your Reality

negative thoughts create your reality. banish them ad replace them with uplifting ones. Mercia Tapping

So much of our happiness in life depends on the battle for the mind. And it requires mental discipline. I will give you an example. I have been putting a tremulous toe as a widow into the dating pool. A pretty common reaction by men is they don’t know they could keep up with me, especially intellectually. At first I was discouraged. And then I thought ” Hey girl, celebrate! Two years ago you were fighting for your life and with chemo brain you could not think your way out of a paper bag. So celebrate that you are BACK, and trust that the right man will show up in good time” I share this with you to show that keeping a positive outlook on life is a mental discipline, which can over time, just be habitual.

You Will Rise Again

you will rise again like a beautiful jewel in the night. Mercia Tapping

There have been times when I have felt utterly beaten into the ground by the latest bad news in my life. And then I remember my mother, a woman of extraordinary courage who never let life defeat her. Yes, like us all she was bruised and banged up, but she always rose again to fight on. Now like a Phoenix rising, I know I owe a lot to having witnessed my mother’s courage. So keep the faith my friends.

dream a little. then the magic will start to appear in your life. Mercia Tapping

I have done some unusual things in my life and am often asked the question “How did you ever think of doing that?”. My answer always is ” It begins with a dream”. If you cannot envision some outcome, it will never happen. Keep dreaming.
