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…

I Wish To Live A Life
Do you ever wonder how much of your life happens at random and how much 'by divine design'. What if you could wish your life into the form that would most delight you?

This Pretty Planet
  April 22nd , 1970 was the date that began a legacy of love for the planet, as Earth Day made its debut. John McConnell, Gaylord Nelson and Denis Hayes planted the seeds for the eco-fest that now 44 years later has taken on epic proportions as the need for environmental awareness has r

I Stand For Love
I am proud to proclaim that I am a heart forward love-monger. I grew up in a touchy feely, mushy gushy family in which verbal and physical affection flowed like water from a fountain. No one left the house without hearing the words I love you and without a hug or kiss from my mom or dad. As a result

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi
