A Conversation

Dear Beautiful People,

A conversation… You are invited. 🙂

You: Where do I begin?
Me: You can start with breathing.

You: I’m weary.
Me: I understand.  You are not alone.  Life has away of pulling the rug from under your feet while you are trying to stand firm.  This too shall pass.  Don’t give up.  Please don’t.  You are worth it.

You: I’m not beautiful.
Me: What mirror and dictionary are you looking in?  Look again.  Yes, YOU are most certainly beautiful!  Be kind to you inner and outer self.

You: I don’t matter in this world.
Me: Yes, YOU do!  The world needs you because there is no one like you.

You: Does it matter what neighborhood I live in, what car I drive, what clothes I wear, how many friends or followers I have, how I look, where I’m from…?
Me: It matters how you treat people (including yourself)… with love, acceptance, compassion, respect, generosity and kindness.

You: I’m happy!
Me: That’s wonderful.  Embrace the moment and make others happy too.  We’ll have a village of happy people!

You: I don’t know what to do.  I don’t have all of the answers right now.
Me: I understand.  You are not alone.  We will not have all of the answers, but we can have faith.  Have you ever tried praying, being still, quiet time, devotion time or meditating?  It is life-changing.  You can try to start there if you would like to, okay.

You: I feel better.
Me: That’s great to hear!  The seasons of life change.  That includes victory, blessings, defeat, waiting, memories, moments, struggles, overcoming, suffering, triumph, winning, setbacks, growth and change.  The hope is that we become better human beings during the seasons of life.

Me:  Plant seeds of joy in your heart! 🙂

You are not alone,

YaKima

Waiting

Dear Beautiful People,

While you are waiting… time does not stand still.  Life keeps happening.

We are all waiting for something… a dream to come true, a significant other, a husband or a wife, a new job or promotion, a baby, an apology, a new life, a new opportunity, a pet, a new house or car, forgiveness, happiness, fulfillment, to be loved, to lose weight or gain weight, a new gadget, another chance.  The list goes on and on but I think you get the point.  🙂

While you are waiting… life is full of twists and turns, victory and defeat.  You have to make a choice to keep on living, believing and doing your part even when life doesn’t feel so great.  Some days will be brighter than others.  Always remember every single day we live to see is a gift.  Count your blessings over and over again to remind you of the light in your life.  Some days you will feel like you can conquer the world, and some days you will feel the weight of the world.

While you are waiting… surround yourself with loving and  caring people, pray, meditate, exercise gratitude daily, listen to songs that will inspire you and encourage you, learn about yourself, read positive and uplifting messages, encourage others and yourself.  Love others!  Love yourself!  🙂  Xo

Peace,

YaKima

 

Moving Mountains

Dear Beautiful People,

Moving Mountains… sometimes that is what life feels like.  Do you ever feel like you are moving only to feel like you are in the same place you started?  Well, if you feel like you are moving mountains then I want you know you are UNSHAKEABLE, PATIENT, UNIQUE, DETERMINED, FOCUSED, CREATIVE, RESILIENT, BEAUTIFUL, COMMITTED and CREATED with PURPOSE.  Wow, YOU are powerful!  I haven’t had much experience moving mountains we see in nature, but I can only imagine what it would take to move one.  Whew!  Be encouraged and keep moving.  Don’t give up.  You are growing and going places.  Let’s go!                                               

Cheering for you,

YaKima

Overcoming Obstacles

“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.” ~Ben Okri~

Dear Beautiful People,

Whatever you are going through is a bridge… leading you to a better and brighter day.  Creating, overcoming, enduring, transforming and loving is a beautiful and challenging process that we are all capable of once we choose to change.  You are more than enough!  🙂

Warmly,

YaKima
