transformation on a thursday - the winds of change

Welcome to Transformation on a Thursday. I am devoting each Thursday to a positive affirmation or to inspirations in my life. There are so many ways we transform ourselves. It may be through meditation or prayer, by taking a class to learn something new, by involving ourselves in public service, or even changing something in our homes.

Each day for the past two weeks, I have been continuing my 21 day meditation challenge. It has really been helpful in centering and calming me through a difficult time. 

Yesterday, after writing my post, I took an extra 15 minutes to sit and meditate quietly. I felt a calmness come over me and knew that no matter the outcome, I would be okay.



Right after coming to that realization my phone rang and the deputy said she had reached the woman who has my property and although she is being difficult I think we are going to be able to work it out. 

There has been so much change happening in my life recently, but I know that I am finding my direction. I am learning from each of the difficult experiences  and moving forward.



I know that the seasons of our lives are constantly changing. That in each moment we are all looking for our direction. 

Sometimes it just seems so hard to know which is the right road to take, but when we sit quietly and let the world come to us I think the path becomes clearer. 



I have many decisions to make in the coming months. I have been so busy taking care of my mom and my sister and her husband that I have failed to take good care of myself. 

So for now, I am going to continue meditating and enjoying my alone time during my morning walks, and when things start to settle down I am going to focus on what it is I dream of in my quiet moments.

I hope you will, too.

  8. Laura- You have had quite a time of it over the last couple of years. I think it is wonderful that you are really taking some time for yourself. It is so easy for your health to suffer when you are intent on taking care of everyone around you...and before you know it you feel 100 years old.
    I hope it works out that you get your stuff back. That has been another big, stressful mess. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you, Laura. xo Diana

  12. Taking time to care for ourselves is essential. We can't offer anything to others, if we are on empty. I'm glad you're taking time to nourish your spirit.
