Allow Your Heart To Be Your Compass

 

Wander whimsically. Allow your heart to be the compass on your journey as you tread lightly on the path before you. Have not a clue about your ultimate destination. Instead, trust that the One who guides you has the most magnificent trip mapped out, with alternate routes and detours; your own personal AAA (Awesome Awakened (I) Am). At all times, you have a choice whether to follow the map, stepping on each stone or leap frogging over them, taking the safe ‘straight and narrow’ or meandering off into all manner of grand adventures.

    Always nice to see your suggestions here, Edie. Yes, my heart is my compass on this Monday morning…

    Couldn’t agree with you more, Edie! We are very well trained to think by head and forget to check our heart a lot of times. What seems right to our head may not be the right thing to do. I always say, “if it doesn’t feel right, it won’t be right”.
    I also like how you say “tread lightly” and not have to have a clue on our ultimate destination. What we can think of and plan for our life is limited to our own experience/knowledge/wisdom. I can’t think of the possibility of having a 20-year-old plan for his/her life when he/she reaches, say, 60.
    Nice blog! I will continue reading…

Child's Play
I've been thinking a lot lately about my childhood experiences, almost in a life review format. Chalk it up to turning 56 in a few weeks. I grew up in a two parent household, with a younger sister born 2 1/2 years afterward,  so I had some time with them and with my grandmother as an 'only child'

Sleepiphany
This being a writer brings with it a penchant for word mash-ups and unique configurations. Many in my life share that talent. Yesterday while perusing Facebook, I noticed a term coined by a fellow wordsmith Shawn Allen. He was commenting on having taken a nap and then awakened with what he referred

Love Poems to God
Words come from a Divine Source, as far as I am concerned. since my writing (as if does for other wordsmiths) 'writes me'.  It flows through me and not from me. There are times when I have looked back at journal entries or articles I have penned over the years and think "Who wrote this?  I don't r

Unremarkable
We all like to think of ourselves as extraordinary, exceptional, and  a slew of other superlatives. Is there anyone who wants to feel ordinary, as if they have not accomplished anything of note? Chances are, since you are reading this, you have indeed achieved a modicum of success. Likely you le
