A WISE TEACHER ONCE TOD ME.....

OVER THE PAST TWO MONTHS, I HAD BEEN GOING TO SEVERAL DINNER DANCES IN MY AREA. THE THEME OF THE NIGHT IS THAT I USUALLY I  SIT IN MY CHAIR ALL NIGHT, AND SPEAK WITH THE WOMEN AT MY TABLE. I HAVE BEEN FINDING THAT I HAVE BEEN FANTASIZING ALOT ABOUT MY DEAD HUSBAND JEFF,  WALKING INTO THE ROOM, WALKING OVER TO MY TABLE AND TAKING MY HAND TO DANCE. HE ALWAYS LOOKS THE IMAGE OF GOOD HEALTH. AND THEN SADLY THE TEARS WELL UP IN MY EYES WHEN I REALIZE THAT HE IS NOT COMING IN TO TAKE ME IN HIS ARMS AND  ASK ME TO DANCE. ...more

YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF LIFE CHANGES ALL AT ONCE, YOU MAY FIND YOURSELVES TRYING TO SEE WHERE YOU CURRENTLY FIT IN OR WHAT YOU LIKE IN THE NOW. I AM A MEMBER OF PAULS LIST IN MARYLAND. IT IS A LARGE MEETUP GROUP. I HAVE RECENTLY FOUND OUT THAT THEIR FOCUS IS ON DANCING. AND I ALSO HAVE LEARNED THAT I CANNOT DANCE. I LOVE TO SIT WITH A GLASS OF WINE, OR A CUP OF COFFEE AND LISTEN TO MUSIC. ...more

EVERYONE WANTS ROMANTIC LOVE. YOU KNOW THE KIND OF LOVE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL GIDDY, WEAK, YOUR HEART SKIPS A BEAT, THERE ARE BUTTERFLIES IN YOUR STOMACH, AND MOST IMPORTANT, FOR ME ANYWAY, YOU LOOSE YOUR APPETITE. THIS  KIND OF LOVE CAN COME MANY TIMES DURING AN INDIVIDUALS LIFETIME, IF YOUR HEART IS OPEN TO RECEIVE IT. THERE REALLY IS NO SUCH THING AS ONLY ONE LOVE, WE MAKE IT THAT WAY. THE UNIVERSE PROVIDES MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOVE AT ALL TIMES, IN FACT THERE IS AN ABUNDANCE OF IT. ...more

WHEN WE LET GO OF ALWAYS TRYING TO CONTROL THE ENVIROMENT AROUND US, AND GO WITH THE FLOW OF LIFE, THINGS JUST SEEM TO HAPPEN MORE EASILY IN A POSITIVE WAY. FIGHTING THE NATURAL UNFOLDMENT OF LIFE, KEEPS A PERSON BLOCKED, IN FEAR, AND UNABLE TO MOVE FORWARD IN THEOIR LIVES. TRUST IN THE UNIVERSE TO MOVE YOU WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO BE,. TRUST IN THE PROCESS. THINGS HAPPEN AT A QUICKER RATE WHEN YOU DO THIS. LIGHT AND LOVE TO ALL LAURIE...more
