You ask, “Why should I change? Everything is fine.”
But the reality is, ‘everything’ is not fine.
Having to face the realities of conflict, chaos, confusion, jealousy, bitterness, resentment & depression is a painful thing …without even considering all those other feelings!
I remember sitting on the couch in my parents’ living-room, with tears rolling down my face, my heart racing, my ears burning, and that anxious desire to jump up and run out of the door!
But I needed them to understand me! And, what’s more, they needed me to understand them.
It was urgent enough for me to stay and work it out, so that I could sleep better, laugh at jokes again, and to free myself from the cage of anger where I had lived for years!
Now, years later, I realize that the lessons I learned from my parents are invaluable to my success! I am actually living the life of my dreams! I’m happy, not that I don’t have problems, aches & pains. But I have succeeded at what I wanted to accomplish, with the motivation to experience more and new, and create and re-create…That’s where I live everyday!
Now I realize that change is often a good thing, because it leads to growth!
When we accept the need to make a change, we open the window to possibilities beyond what we know.
Why change? It could be that you will actually feel a ‘rush’ of ‘new air’ as you inhale a refreshing renewal of spirit!
Now that things seem to be getting back to some-sort-of normalcy, with the vaccine becoming more readily available to more people, and with the Stimulus Relief in the U.S. that we’re all expecting in some form or another…
…Let’s talk about the elephant that seems to Still be in the room:
Worry will wear you out! Worry is taking up your time, your energy, and it’s actually hurting you.
Take the time, instead, to reflect on the Unchangeable Constant, those things that bring Hope along with just being there! Like, the fact that the days are still rolling on, and you’ve survived this far! Face it…millions didn’t make it, but you were one of the ones who did!
…And don’t forget, if you have clean, running water, you are blessed! Water is always good for your body. So, if you are fortunate enough to have it, Use it, Enjoy it!
And then, there’s the smile of a loved-one. There’s the hope that a new day brings!
Next time you start to worry about Anything…just remember…Worry is Not your friend. Walk away from worry…
- With a prayer
- With a phone call
- With a song
- With a silly commercial jingle
- With a positive conversation
- With a cool glass of water
- With hope in your heart!
What are you thinking about right this moment?

Worry, strive & anxiety have been a part of my life for so long that it seemed normal. I got used to it. I woke in the morning, worried about my bank account. “I need to check it to be sure it’s not overdrawn…again.”
During the day, I became angry when someone was rude, or interrupted me when I was speaking. “Ooo, that really irritates me when she does that!”
So much anxiety about what tomorrow will bring…or Not bring!
Then, one day, a friend noticed that irritated expression on my face, & began to talk to me about it. She went from talking about me, to talking about God. That wasn’t something I expected to happen… But I found myself listening & answering her questions about why I was upset. She seemed genuinely concerned, and that was so different for me, And comforting to me!
Later, I found myself reading the Bible app that I allowed her to add to my phone during this little “talk.”
As I read through the scriptures, the words of Jesus spoke to me, and I found even more comfort as I read.
Soon, I became addicted to that app, looking at it whenever I had some “down-time,” in the doctors’ office, sitting in bed, or whenever I was alone.
Something had changed.
I don’t actually remember when, or where or how. But there is definitely something different going on inside my heart:
- I’m more aware of my finances, so I don’t even need to check my bank account each-and-every day!
- I put my trust in God, because, I know that if I can’t pay a bill, all I have to do is call on Jesus, then call the bill-collector. And things will work out, even if it doesn’t turn out the way I expect.
- I’m calmer, somehow. Things don’t irritate me like thing used to irritate me. “What did she say? That’s crazy!” I’ll say to myself with a laugh.
Jesus has actually made me “light.” He’s made me laugh. In His presence is joy evermore! That secret place is where I want to be every day and every night! ~ Wrapped in His Love!
You don’t have to go on suffering inside. This is good news, because it’s something you can do without pills, outside stimuli, or anyone else’s input! Now you’re in control…finally!
No doubt, this is a stressful time for all of us. If you’re like most families with small children, the challenge of “staying home” is a major one!
- For one thing, today, it’s raining and windy. So the children need to stay inside.
- For another thing, our apartment is small, the rooms seem to have gotten smaller,
- And the children’s playtime seems to have gotten louder!
If you’re like me, you’re seeking refuge from so-much stress, right about now!
So, what to do? Get angry? Cry? Scream? May I make a suggestion?
I disappear into the bathroom with my smartphone, log onto a shopping website and fantasize about a beautiful, glowing blue Chakra strand bracelet on my arm, while I’m sitting at my favorite Café, drinking my favorite drink…with my favorite friends!
Crystals help me go deep inside my soul & remember to be grateful for those precious memories, that make me smile, as the tension fades and a dazzling light shines behind my closed-eyes, & I begin to heal from within.
Lucky for me, I actually have a Lapis Lazuli crystal sitting on the bathroom window-ledge, I turn-on the water & by the way, the sound of running water sounds “mighty” soothing!
Inhale, exhale, relax. Open your eyes, come out of your loneliness, & laugh with the children!
