The Student and the Teacher

OwlToday I’d like to hear your thoughts….

Let me be the student and you the teacher …

Now… what is it you’d like to say?

What inspires you?

What gets you up out of bed in the mornings?

What keeps you moving even though you want so badly to give up or take a break?

What motivates you?

What lessons have you learned?

What makes you feel better?

What makes you smile?

What makes you sad?

What is it that you could share today?

Many Blessings,

Feel the Shift…

IMG_8802There are many shifts that will happen in our lives. Some shifts come and go without hardly a notice and others rock our world in such a way that great change is experienced and acknowledged. We are constantly moving into different phases of being and of knowing. As our lives progress, we can’t help but to change.

When a new shift of being draws near, you can feel it. It resonates within you to the very core of your being. Your soul knows it’s coming, your mind, however may want to try and dismiss this shift coming for what could be a wide array of reasons. The shift is necessary for your own personal growth. Find ways to ground yourself and hold steady as the transition takes place. When you begin fighting with the inevitable, it only creates chaos. Stay flexible and allow the shift to take place. Once through the shift you will find yourself in a better place. Mentally, emotionally, physically …. all together better.

Looking back, you’ll wonder why you ever stressed over the change to begin with and wonder why you fought it and why you didn’t allow it to take place sooner.

The key is listening to your own intuition, that inner knowing that lives inside you will let you know when these shifts are coming. Listen and trust!

Fall Hollow – Natchez Trace Parkway

Today I took a trip down Natchez Trace Parkway to Fall Hollow where you can hike to a couple of different waterfalls. I started the trek on the Tennessee side at the 444 mile marker and made my way down to mile marker 391.9 to Fall Hollow. The brochure said it was not an easy hike down or back up for that matter. About half way down I had to find a good sturdy stick to help me the rest of the way down. Without that stick I doubt I would have made it back up. It had rained all night and was still raining off and on today so the hike was worse than normal. There were lots of places you had to hold on to the trees to make it down to the next level. The good thing is you really don’t have to hike very far to reach the falls. There were 3 different falls to Ooooo and Ahhhh over and I’m glad I made the trip down to see them.

At the last waterfall I started taking a video and a little blue butterfly decided to pay me a visit. It danced all through the waterfall and then up into the forest where it disappeared.

Check out the video and the photos below :-)

I’m Not You… I’m Me

happy to be me
I don’t look like you may think I should, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t do things the way you think they should be done, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I may not react the way you think I should, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t paint what you think I should paint, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t say what you think I should say, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I may not eat the way you think I should eat, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I may not feel what you think I should feel, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t see what you think I should see, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I don’t believe the way you think I should believe, but…
That’s okay because I’m not you… I’m Me

I’m perfectly good the way I am, being me the best way that I can. We are all different and that’s not bad. Instead of building bridges to keep us apart, lets build them so that we can come closer together. You bring the rope and I’ll bring the planks. Together we’ll build a connection that unites us.

Many Blessings,
