Don’t stand and weep

This is my all time favourite poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye. A friend sent it to me when my mother passed.

Don’t stand beside my grave and weep,
For I’m not there, I do not sleep.
I …

Nothing to fix

29 Nov

“We don’t have to be fixed to be healed.” That’s the conclusion I came to a long time ago.

We must be flexible enough to bend to what life throws at us, not the other way around. Having a certain belief doesn’t take away pain, stress or any illness we may have to deal with in the future …

Understanding the signs

28 Nov

Although we’re not always akin to understanding how the universe works, I believe the universe sends out pointers to help us work through certain situations.

I remember an incident many years ago through work, where it didn’t matter what I did, I never seemed to be able to please my boss who would fly off the handle at every opportunity when he thought I’d messed up. I had to be one step ahead of him all the time …

Sewing a seed

23 Nov

As a child I said very little. I wasn’t encouraged to think for myself so invariably I said and did very little. Years on I do things very differently. Sewing a seed is a thought we set in motion, a thought that will take root, possibly grow and blossom into something that takes place and bears fruit, to help another person. That thought should eventually have a much greater impact on that person’s life, but they won’t necessarily …

Problems for parents

22 Nov

Usually when children are young they have small problems and those problems will always seem easier. When children grow into adults some parents may find it more difficult to help their children with their problems because they’re dealing with adult problems. That part for any parent isn’t easy can take years of practice to master the art, even for themselves …
