The hard stuff

Seems to be lots of us going through some bloody hard 'stuff' right now.

I would like to write a deep and meaningful post to help everyone through it but you know, I can't.

Poeple can only help themselves.

Hard stuff is just stuff that needs to be gotten through.

One day at a time.

I can however say that there is ALWAYS the other side to head towards.

Even dying has another side.

I believe that this life is not the 'only'.

I believe that when we die we do indeed go somewhere, and that this life here is only a tiny part of what we experience in our journeys.

I don't believe in hell, in any of its portrayals.

I believe we can create our own hell right here, but we can uncreate it too.

I believe we are never given more than we can handle, it just feels like it sometimes.

I believe that we are guided should we choose to listen.

I believe in miracles even though they don't usually come in the forms we may find appropriate.

I believe that in order to find peace we must look inside ourselves and not outside.

I believe that all of you will fight your battles as best you know how.

And that some of you will realise that fighting is not the answer, surrendering is.

And vice versa...

Life is a funny thing but always, interspersed with the shit, there are nuggets of gold.

The trick is to see them and hold them and be here in this now.

This now is all we have.

Tomorrow is not here yet and yesterday is long gone.

Just do today people.

It is enough.

Well said indeed.

There is a strange vibe around here at the moment - it seems like endings and new beginnings, a real shift of sorts, re-prioritising, a lot of soul searching going on.

True and well said. I have the same vision (more or less) of hell...the most hellish part of hell is that we have the key to get out anytime we want but don't seem to be able to use it.

Michelle that is because I have many more years on you to have organized my thoughts. I have a million thoughts on the subject and believe me they are all over the place.

I am like water today I am here tomorrow over there.


Hope the family is all well.

Love Renee
