Synthesis Note (33): "Starting Over"

Song of the Moment: “Winter Wind” by Jose James

As I reflect on the holiday season, I contemplate the year coming to a close and all the blessings in my life. I am grateful for my friends, family and experiences both in RL and SL. I am grateful for my health and for the opportunity to serve… to love…to help and be helped through the care and support of others. I am grateful for the spirit of giving that this time of year seems to inspire in us, and for my own desire to be open and receptive to receiving from others that which they give in love. There is no gift greater than love with “forgiveness” serving as a close second.

2009 has been a quite a ride for me. Some say that nine, being the last simple number, is the number of finalization. I look forward to 2010 as a new beginning… an opportunity to start over, again… to let go of those things in my life that no longer serve me to make room for those things that I truly desire. I enter the New Year with the mantra 'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'  I appreciate that to mature emotionally… to develop a new skill, I must bring that experience into my life. If I ask for more patience, I will expect to manifest more opportunities that will challenge my patience knowing that each time I push myself to remain peaceful in those situations, the more patient I will become. When I ask to be better able to forgive, I will then embrace those opportunities which present themselves where I would ask for forgiveness so that I am better able to understand why being willing to forgive is necessary.

In 2009, I fell deeply, as more than once my heart and my “peace” were broken followed by a time of reflection and renewal …each time picking up only the “piece” I wanted. In 2010, I will RE-member the parts of me that have been broken and “PEACE” them lovingly together to form a new Me, a perfect whole, to live and love without fear…Living up to my grandest vision, leaving behind the need to live up to the image created for me by others.

I remind myself of a favorite joke “ the definition of insanity is doing the same thing, the same way and expecting a different result.”

I am ready for a new beginning… are you?

May 2010 bring your heart joy like you have never known…

With peace and love,

Relationships Are Like Glass (Synthesis Note [32])

“Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it is better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.” ~Unknown

Today I want to remind you that you are whole, perfect and worthy just the way you are. You are loved and appreciated, but sometimes we seek acknowledgement for that from someone beyond a door that has closed despite that fact that there are open windows all around.

Melodie Beattie said “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

I am grateful for the blessings of my first life.

I am grateful for the blessings of my second life

I am grateful for my relationships in both lives and connecting with people who are as open and willing to provide me love, support and guidance, as I am to provide it for others.

I am grateful for the ability to forgive and for the understanding that if I am unwilling to forgive, how could I ask others to forgive those transgressions *I* have committed? It has to start somewhere...

I am grateful for those who have forgiven me, in honor of our love and connection.

If noone has told you today, I want you to know that *I* love you, *I*  appreciate you and feel so grateful that you share your second life with me ...and each other.

We are here for you … just beyond the window pane (and pain)…

SEE US? (waves & smiles)

Bless XOXO
