“You’ll Be Okay” random thoughts by G. D. Grace

Say, you…
Yes, you…
Don’t I know you from somewhere?
Let’s see, was it…
No, it wasn’t!
I believe I know you from a reflection I’ve seen before…
A reflection I saw a few years ago when you were younger –
younger and more vibrant.

When did you return?
I must tell you it’s been a long time, and I’m wondering what has changed?
When I peer into your eyes I see this light — a light of confidence and peace.
Where did you find it?

Oh, I see, it was after the trials and tribulations.
Well, I must say it looks good on you, and I want you to know that I’ve missed you –
I’ve missed our heart-to-heart discussion about a dream you wanted to follow.
You were so eager and focused back then, and I’m glad to see that you’ve found that drive again.

I believe that we all must go through those adversities to get to the place we eventually arrive at.
You, my friend, have always been compassionate and kind, and I’m glad you never lost that — even with what you were going through.

So much of this life can be spent up on people, places, & things that aren’t good for us.
I am just glad that you cleaned house mentally, spiritually, and wholeheartedly.
I’m so happy you rid your life of slippery slopes and shady people.

Welcome back, you, and if you ever get that notion take a step backwards, make sure you’re doing it to pull up another, and you’ll be just fine, because the only way we keep what we’ve found is by giving back.

You’ll be okay!

“fear” – [random thoughts by G.D. Grace]

You glare at me through a dismissive gaze, as if you have triumphed over me and my inadequacies, like you know me on some personal level.

Disquised as truth you size me up as though I were the most basic equasion, less than one and empty as zero.

From an underlying angle, you remind me of every uncertainty that has ever dared stand between me, my passion, and all my reasons for keeping the faith.

I suppose you’ll always try testing my courage, because it’s what you do.

Fear.

“Surrender” random reflection by G. D. Grace

Ever feel as naked as an autumn tree, or as vulnerable as a baby bird with a peach fuzz of feathers? Are there moments when you sit quivering in a remote nest, surrounded by the vastness of a life calling you to fly?

During tonight’s meeting I sat astute, focusing on the testimonies being told, and I began to realize that less than a year ago I was standing at the beginning of a new life, ripe as low hanging fruit late spring.

The passing months have revealed a lot to me about the powers of faith and hope. Scattered in the mix was a self-discovery that assured me I was loved by a power greater than I ever fathomed.

When you understand just how important you are to this existence, you walk upon new plains and are renewed within.

Your new beginning awaits surrender.

“Surrender” by Swing Out Sister
From Grammy Nominated CD “It’s Better to Travel”

“That Place” – insight by G. D. Grace

That place where the spirit and soul dwell…
That place so divine and vast it emulates the power of the ocean…
That place where beauty profound soars high
That place were vulnerability is celebrated….
That place where all your dreams beam brightest…
That place that embraces love unconditionally…
That place within you that knows insurmountable passion…

That’s the place you must tap into to truly be free.

Trip Towards Your Double PP’s – insight by G. D. Grace

What once was a desolate plain of existence is now a lush life filled with joy and happiness. Though, not often, I encounter individuals from the past who instantly begin attacking the serenity that I’ve found.

I am thankful to be one of the fortunates who had the courage to step away from familiar people and places towards a better way of life.

In the moment may you find clarity and faith to walk away from adversity. Remember, misery loves company. Be sure footed stepping off that bus and transferring to another.

Take a trip towards your double P’s…

“Solo” – recited during the interview with author/minister Ronald Bell

I will never fly solo,

Not with the unyielding power of faith and love from you

You are in every breath I take, in every step that I take

You are in the four seasons, and in the sudden breeze the races around me

You inspire me to smile whenever the blues fills me up

You are refreshing newness in the overflowing cup

Because of you I have all that I need in this life

You are the whole, the full, and the everything that’s right

I’ll never fly solo because shinning within is your essence of light

“SO MUCH YET TO SEE” – introspective reflection by G. D. Grace

When we are younger, the world seems so enchanting and big –

And our dreams our as vast as a midnight sky.

We imagine all the wonders of the world being right at our finger tips,

And our imaginations are colorful as a spring hillside bursting with variety…

Then, somewhere along the line we become jaded about everything,

Because of trials and tribulations that reveal themselves in our lives,

But we must never stop dreaming and imagining all we can be….

Not when this big beautiful world has so much yet to see….

IS IT ANY WONDER? – introspective by G. D. Grace

IS IT ANY WONDER?

Is it any wonder that life has gotten better?

You see, when you clear out old things that never mattered
You can replace them with new things that truly do matter.

How many times have you heard we got this only to walk it alone?
When the push came to shove the “bestie” was gone?

Give it up for the will to succeed in spite of
Standing O for the courage deep rooted to love

Never ever be victim to the cunning and shrewd
Just let them go and with strength be renewed

Climb the later of success and be filled with sublime
From a life you have built solely yours by design.

Is it any wonder that life has gotten better?

More Will Be Revealed – by G. D. Grace

With my back against all that I leave behind, I stand upon new ground rich with possibility and fertile in prosperity. All of the mistakes and bad decisions seem to have been intentional in occurrence.

The loneliness and unfulfilled existence were mere buds that have now bloomed in radiant colors, and I feel more alive than I have ever felt.

Every wrong relationship I encountered now stands as examples of who I never was, and with this clean playing field I can see a clear shot that leads to fulfillment and success.

What I left behind mattered only in the lessons I learned, and I know without a doubt, more will be revealed.
