Life is Like a Puzzle

Dear Beautiful People,

Life is like a puzzle.

We are constantly searching for answers on how to put it all together.  Each piece of the puzzle represents life experience – victory, adversity, triumph, failure (YOU are not a failure but sometimes life doesn’t go as planned), happiness, disappointment, clarity, confusion, growth, new direction, personal development, a friendship, a relationship, a character trait, a choice, a consequence… the list goes on and on.

We don’t always get to choose the pieces.  However, every piece of the puzzle gives meaning to our lives and prepares us to live out our purpose.  Hmmm… how do you define purpose?

So walk in love, joy, compassion, kindness and peace.  Keep creating your masterpiece… your life puzzle.  You are worth it.  You matter.  You are beautiful.

P.S. Don’t be bitter.  Life gets sweeter…that’s what I tell myself, hah!  Keep living…  🙂

Peace,

YaKima

Life is fleeting…

Question: When was the last time…     THINK

You said, “I love you.”

You kissed a loved one on the cheek.

You looked up at the sky, sun and the moon.

You told your spouse how much he or she means to you and how much you appreciate your partner.

You said thank you for the gift of life.

You thought about your life without a loved one.

You expressed your love with your actions and your words.

You did your best to not take people for granted.

You said a prayer.

You meditated.

You asked for forgiveness and/or forgave yourself.

You said, “thank you.”  Those two words create love!

You let the loved one be more important than being right.

You cared.

You listened to a song that made you feel like you can conquer the world… then pressed repeat more than three times.

You opened your heart to love.

You really let it go.

You smiled and kept walking when life didn’t feel good.

You took a deep breath during the day and realized how important each single breath was… and still is if you are reading this post.  😉

You really moved on from what is holding you back.

You got unstuck.

You held on to your faith.

You focused on someone other than yourself.

You hugged someone.  Hugs create love!

You smiled at someone.

You thought about how do you treat people.

You told someone, “No, you go first.”

You gave with a cheerful heart.

You took the time to think about life… the gift of life.

Now is always the best time to do the things that will help us appreciate life more, the people close to us and people all around us.  Let’s appreciate life – you and me!  🙂
