The Queen of Reinvention

When you look in the mirror, who do you see?  Not ‘what do you see”?  Go beyond appearance….way beyond…go inward. What does this person think, feel, say and do?  Does that contribute to the makeup of their identity?  Perhaps. How about their history?  Not so much, as I like to remind people “Your history is not your destiny.”  We each have the right to create our lives in our own image. Awesome responsibility comes with it, since when we do that, we have no one to blame if it doesn’t turn out to our liking.  Many feel they are at the mercy of family, friends, their jobs, the media, the government, God… I imagine that is pretty painful. Never have I allowed myself to feel like a victim of circumstance for any length of time.  I would much rather take credit for my successes and responsibility for my errors in judgment, or as a friend has said “mistakes of epic proportions.”  Even those have been stepping stones to the wondrous life I am living now.

For the first time ever, I have become remarkably introspective, dynamically still and silent when once I was a whirlwind of activity, a tornado of thought, sucking everything up into the funnel to be dumped into my ceaselessly busy buzzy brain. Sighing a lot.  Dreaming a lot. Staring into space a lot. Aimlessly wandering  a lot. That would have been unthinkable before. How silly to believe that the world would stop rotating on its axis if  I did. How arrogant to think I had that kind of power. How rewarding it is to take pause. As I do that, all that I have desired is coming into my life. The inner peace I have so desperately wanted surrounds me. The abundance in all areas splashes over me. The from the heart relationships are deepening.

I barely recognize the woman in the mirror; I even look different. Softer, calmer, more present. Taking one breath at a time. One step at a time. Almost one thought at a time; admittedly, there are still some vying for attention, but I have been asking them to wait their turn and sometimes they do.  As I do, life gets easier. As I listen to my inner guidance,  I am able to attract with little need to pursue what I want. Of course, I still set intention and take inspired action, but it is less insistent and more surrendered. Such a sense of peace accompanies it.

 

I like it that way as I become the Queen of Reinvention.  God has indeed ‘saved the Queen’ as she savors her new life.

Be the Vortex
Yesterday, I was sitting in a black plastic chair at Meineke in Doylestown,  waiting for my car to be given the thumbs up to be road worthy after a rough winter. Here in Eastern, PA, like many places that endured snow, below freezing temps and with it, expansion and contraction of driving surfaces,

The Width of An Eyelash-The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Yesterday, I saw the much heralded film : The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Even without benefit of viewing its predecessor, I enjoyed it immensely. It may have had something to do with the demographic I am now in. Although most of the characters were twenty or more years my senior, I could r

Through The Eyes of Love
Yesterday, my friend Joan made a comment on Facebook about a painful interaction with someone in her life. "I've been looking at myself through the eyes of someone who doesn't love me, but trying to see love." My response to her was this: "If you are looking at yourself through the eyes of someo

We Never Know Who We Will Touch With Our Words
It is no secret that I am addicted to words. As a career writer, I live and breathe their essence. They delight me to no end. They are the beat of my heart and the blood that flows through my veins. They are a source of emotional, spiritual and physical support. They feed my right livelihood work th
