Umbrella Life ~ Spring Thoughts…



Today is a brand NEW day, and we are embarking on a New Season ~ Yes, SPRING ~ 2016!

Now that we have entered into the Spring Season, it is now time to reflect on those jewels hidden within…

What new thing or things are you going to dare to do this Season?

Let us first be appreciative of all of the joyous people that we have in our lives — friends, family, co-workers, and also all of the new friends that we are meeting along the way in life.

Review Time…

Sometimes it is worth it to stop and reflect.  Reflection has a way of keeping you on track.  One way to help you with your progress is to Journal.  I can’t stress it enough.  You’ll find that I always mention Journaling, because it is very helpful in so many ways.  You will begin to keep your thoughts close to your heart when you Journal daily.  You’ll find that your mind becomes clearer and more focused on your aspirations. 

KEY POINT There are no errors — everything becomes a work in progress.  You can learn from every thought that you share in your Journal with yourself.  The best way to keep in touch with your mental state is to record it.  Yes, write it down.  Meditate on why you feel the way you feel.

Pay attention to the interesting people that cross your path.  Understand that sometimes the things that you are looking for are right in front of your face — literally!

It will be interesting to find you Journaling in the months of April and May, and discovering deep jewels during the month of May after you go back and read your April Journal notations.  Give it a try — We’ll be here waiting to hear what you find out about yourself and the process that you undertake as you search your soul.

With determination, you’ll be sure to improve not only your life, but the lives of all those who you may come in contact with, as you dare to accomplish those things that are close to your heart in this Season.

Here are a few tips for you…

  1.     You can decide to shape your life on this day in your mind, body. and soul.
  2.     You can also decide to forgive others for anything that they may have done to you, said to you, or said about you that had affected you in a negative way.
  3.      You can forgive yourself and anyone else for the shame or self-defeating thoughts that you have been carrying around; and you can exchange those thoughts and feelings for a vision of spiritual purifying rain washing away the negative impacts that may have put a damper on your life in the past.
  4.      It is never worth carrying around old luggage that weighs you down.  And, remember that negative interactions in life add up to heavy burdensome luggage.  You don’t need it, and you don’t want to carry that into another amazing Season in your life.

Without any excuses whatsoever, let us go back to the original question for today…

What new thing or things are you going to dare to do this Season?

Whatever happened to you that took a little piece of your spirit just simply made room for another divinely added piece of your spirit to come into place…

Maybe you had forgotten that you were a Writer, or an Artist, or passionate about a cause long put aside.

Maybe you had forgotten that you were a Photographer who could capture the world like no one else ever has, or ever will…

And  just maybe, YOU are a Healer who can lay hands on the sick, or help to mend the broken-hearted.

Maybe you were born to create a Documentary that will change the lives of many people.

Maybe your Voice is needed for songs, for motivation, for inspiration ~ you may possess a heavenly tone for uplifting those who need to hear your words of compassion, understanding, wisdom and knowledge.

God is like an umbrella ~ covering all people, places, and things.

You are loved, you are special, you are needed, and you are ‘called’ to BE just who God intended you to be.

And, who on earth can disagree about that?
