In Honor Of Women

Posted in life on June 29, 2010 by Robin Eller

I was going through some old messages in my email box and discovered that there were a lot of old messages. I found myself wondering why I kept these old email messages when most people can just read an email and then throw it out after making a reply. My justifiable answer: I’m holding on to these words of wisdom, advice or just something that may have touched my heart the very first time I read them and perhaps reading them again might resonate louder with me or not. When comparing an email to a letter; there is less clutter on my desk in terms of paper…. at least it appears to be. There is something special about reading a hand-written letter because they are so few and far between due to technology. The beauty of technology is that we don’t have to wait a day, or three or even a week for a letter to reach it’s destination. Okay, I digress. The clutter that once remained on my desk has found a new home in my email mailbox. Spring is gone to consider this task “spring cleaning.” I’ll just call it “post-spring cleaning” and clean out my mailbox these next few days. A dear friend sent these words to me. As I read it again, the words still ring true in times of my frustration and more importantly; where I am in my life at this very moment. I decided to post this as a reminder to myself. Ah-ha! There was a good reason for keeping this email after all. 🙂

IN HONOR OF WOMEN:

May there be peace within.

May you trust that

you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite

possibilities that are

born of faith in yourself and others.

May you use the

gifts that you have

received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing,

dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of

us.”

I was in a very low mood and a kind friend originally from England, share these words of encouragement to me. I’ve decided to post it pretty much everywhere I write as a reminder of the journey of life. Somehow I had forgotten. Thanks “Trevz!”

Ongoing Adventure By Maya Angelou on 06-03-2010:

Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now

Because of the routines we follow, we often forget that life is an ongoing adventure. We leave our homes for work, acting and even believing that we will reach our destinations with no unusual event startling us out of our set expectations. The truth is we know nothing, not where our cars will fail or when our buses will stall, whether our places of employment will be there when we arrive, or whether, in fact, we ourselves will arrive whole and alive at the end of our journeys.

Life is pure adventure and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art: to bring all our energies to each encounter, to remain flexible enough to notice and admit when what we expected to happen did not happen. We need to remember that we are created creative and can invent new scenarios as frequently as they are needed.
