Do we ever really know what is around the corner?
This last week has been intense to say the least, in our very small town community we have been hit with terrible tragedy’s and are all grieving together. The week before last, we lost our town vet, who was very well known and loved – unfortunately he succumbed to the darkness – a terrible loss. And then we lost another two close community members, husband and wife who were just out for an afternoon ride…. the whole town has been grieving and working in an environment where you are dealing daily with family members of lost loved ones, trying to help them through the pain so they can square things away and move on from their loss has been taxing.
Our exercise of reading obituaries daily was originally set to be a challenge because fortunately, usually, we do not have obituaries in our tri-weekly community newspaper – so I was buying a “city” paper where the stories of people past did not hit heart strings. These last two weeks our tiny little paper has been full of them, with faces we know and love….
The universe certainly works in mysterious ways, the Scroll marked V which we have been conducting our daily reads from…. from the beginning sentence “I will live this day as if it is my last” has had a whole new emotional connection – one that until now I have not been able to put into words (and so yes I am late with my blog this week).
Working hard using the law of substitution – working hard to replace positive and light where we have been surrounded in sadness and sorrow – reminding myself “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” and that I have within me the power from the world within to beam radiantly even through such times of sorrow, I am now able to write my blog.
I am ever so grateful for this community and wish to remain in harmony, for myself and those whom I love.
We do not know what is around the corner, so make sure you choose to live every day as if it is your last.
CHOOSE to live. CHOOSE to love.
