  1. As we get older, we learn the wisdom of acceptance. Whatever is going to happen, will happen! There is a quote from someone who said ’Youth is wasted on the young', how very true this is. We have so many enthusiastic ideas for our future when we set out and looking back in my life so much didn’t go to plan.

    However much we look back, and want to change what happened and how we handled a situation, there is nothing we can do but ACCEPT that it is in the past we cannot change that. If you don’t do this, you will be stuck on the roundabout of life’s regrets.

    We can though make our future so much better if we have learned by the mistakes we made, by the wrong roads we have travelled and indeed by the wrong people we have connected with.

    Don’t be in such a hurry. First think before you go headfirst into the next situation. Lots of people ask me why do I keep choosing the same sort of people to be with? The answer is simple: you did not learn the first time, you kept repeating the same pattern over again until the penny dropped. Then, hooray, you finally accepted the learning and changed the situation around you for your future life.

    Who said life would be easy? Certainly, I have had my trials and tribulations as you will see in the book Spirit Shows the Way, but I have learnt many things along the way. To help towards my acceptance of what is, I calmly take a breath and let go of all the angst, if you are quiet and still it will help. Then you can approach the next challenge in a calmer way, the quiet helps you think.  

    Remember, the fairy tale of the hare and the tortoise, the tortoise won the race because he was not arrogant in the thought he would win, but he plodded along one step at a time towards the goal in a very quiet manner knowing that whatever happens he would get there in the end, whether he won or not.  ACCEPTANCE

    Part of the serenity prayer says it all:

    God, give me grace to accept with serenity
    the things that cannot be changed,
    Courage to change the things
    which should be changed,
    and the Wisdom to distinguish
    the one from the other.

    Living one day at a time,
    Enjoying one moment at a time,
    Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,



  2. I consider myself young at heart. I have reached an age where there is less time in front of me than there is behind me. I am blessed with children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. At Christmas time we had the opportunity of all of us being together. It was a bit chaotic and hard work to get us all fed and watered. But it was a marvellous time. 

    My home is my sanctuary, it is where I can get into my PJ's and relax and watch the TV. But, when you sit and watch the news bulletins and see the dreadful things going on around the world, I am always grateful and humbled by my blessings. I am blessed with food in my belly, a warm bed, heating and lighting, and running water and family and friends who love me, all of which we take for granted. It isn't about things, it is about people, we forget we all belong to one another. We are all part of the race humankind. We all need to take time out to think about that. 

    I send out absent healing to all those who are suffering and hope that somehow, they will be helped. We can all do this, all you need to do is go into that quiet space and be silent just for a little while and ask the divine spirit to send that love and healing to the world or just to that person who needs the help.

    Very recently a friend died with cancer, no matter when we go to the spirit world loved ones who are left behind feel the grief. But, don't avoid talking to those who are grieving it is better to acknowledge them and the person who has gone. Believing what I believe that the spirit continues, it gives me great comfort to know this, but, when we lose the body of the person it is difficult. Grieving takes as long as it takes so don’t be in a hurry to overcome it, the pain does not diminish but the time goes past when you get used to the idea.

    On a lighter note I have told my children that I am going to grow old enough to be a nuisance to them. PAY BACK TIME (ha ha).

    Sending you all my healing thoughts

    Love and light
