This morning I awoke from a muddled mass of confusing and frustrating dreams, sweaty and uncomfortable.  Trying to put them in to some sort of order was my goal for the day.

             As I rode a city bus through the rain downtown, then transferred quickly to another one, it started to become clear.  (Have I mentioned lately how very much I enjoy participating in mass transit?)

Personal Gifts

             We all have them.  They are as different and individual as we are.  Some are more obvious, though.  Some, subtle.

             When we come from a place of serenity and lovingkindness, we are better able to recognize these blessings.  When we struggle (as some of us are wont to do), the utilization of our gifts becomes more stressful than stress-reducing.

             Less arguing, more acceptance.  That’s what the Universe wants us to remember right now.  Also, where I was directed for our daily draw.

             This is yet another way to live with authenticity and full participation.

“Goddess of Strength  ~

‘Stand up for what you believe;

you will gain respect by holding your ground.’

There are times in life when it is best to let go and walk away from certain situations.  However, you are being encouraged by the universe to stand up for what you believe in, with regards to a situation you are currently faced with.

Stand firm in your beliefs and convictions, yet do not allow resentment or anger to fester.  It is possible to be both loving and strong simultaneously.

You will gain much respect from others by standing your ground.  At the same time you will have broken a repeating pattern of not standing up for yourself that has affected your life experiences for far too long.
