“This instant—this one now—is always your life’s beginning, a fresh chance to start living your destiny.” ~Unknown~
This quote popped up in my memories so I decided to pair it with this photograph I took the other day while on my Soul Stroll. The Now of this leaf’s life was to share its autumnal color and beauty with me. It’s nearing its end, yet is this the leaf’s final destiny?! Nope, for through decomposition, it will continue to live on, giving its nutrients to the soil.
Which got me remembering how I’ve tried living and reliving the past, and then having to ask myself, how’s that working for you Linda? 🤷🏻♀️ and of course I’ve tried living for the future, waiting for that something better to come along, all the while life was passing me by…….
So, I choose to live my life Now, to embrace it and appreciate the moment. The ups, the downs, the curves and detours, because I know God has it mapped out, and with Faith, I follow 👣knowing exactly where my final destiny will be ✝️
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5)
When a quiet sunrise soul stroll turns into a pony surprise…I can remember this day like it was yesterday, yet, it was 6 years ago…little did I know when I took and sent this video and picture to my Jim, it would be the last pictures I’d send him before his unexpected passing…
Was reminded of this while watching God paint the sky earlier this morning 🙌
You’ve wasted moments being unsure of yourself. You’ve wasted moments worrying about the things you have no control over. You’ve lost sleep over and have second guessed the choices you have made. You’ve worried about what this person or that person may think…..Well the time has come to realize doing all of these things is a waste of the precious moments you’ve been Blessed with……….Tell yourself your going to do more than just exist and open your eyes and your heart to the fact that living a complacent life isn’t really living ………
Soooooooooooo……….As I slowly sipped my coffee with pumpkin creamer 😊🎃 I once again made a pact with myself (one of the wonderful things about a new day is the gift of starting over)…….Today I’m going to Embrace and Thank God that I Am Alive and start living it! 🙌🙌🙌
