Stand Strong…

humanity-quotes-7

Life can be complicated, love can be messy and nothing worth having is ever easy. I have worked hard for everything I have in my life and it was all worth the fight, mentally, physically and most of all emotionally. There was not one moment I would have given up to take the easy way out. I was close at times when my heart felt bruised, my mind felt defeated and my body wanted to collapse to the floor, but that is not who I am. I was brought up to lead by example with strength, integrity and a moral compass intact. That does not mean I have not made mistakes, I have, we all have. Fix them as best you can and move forward.

The world challenges who we are at time. The easy way out is to blindly join the masses and follow. The question is who are you following? What do YOU want the world to be? What do YOU believe will make OUR world a better place? What can YOU offer OUR world to reflect that? What is your purpose or contribution to bring peace and love back to the planet? Pick THAT and fight for it! It’s time to form connections with other compassionate hearts, educated minds and stand strong together, march side by side united, don’t follow, LEAD!

Fear is the Thief of Dreams ~ Gandhi 

We don’t always get what we want, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make change. Perhaps it was given to us to challenge us to take a stand and fight harder.

Regardless of where you are in life the path you choose to travel will teach you something about yourself and how you fit into humanity. Don’t ever underestimate humanity, and the power of one, we are all one, but collectively we have a heart that beats the same and a voice that is up to us how loud it becomes. Don’t allow anyone to silence your voice. Don’t be seduced into taking the easy path, it’s not what it seems. There is no easy path to greatness or change.

Now is not a time to take the path of least resistance and sit back hoping it will all work out. We need to continue helping those who need it, if we do the world will be a better place. We can not be separated by hate and fear. Our planet is a gift that we have to protect, and human beings are a part of this beautiful gift.

We have all had times in our lives where we felt out of sync or balance with our family, friends and loved ones, but with love and support, understanding and guidance we help and stand strong when they can’t. Positive vibes can be felt by all of us.

Stand strong for those who can’t.

This film will make you think.

“Jealous Of The Angels”

66821_234091456740446_1156119800_nI posted this last year but felt the need to re share it with you as a reminder that Monday is NOT a holiday but a day to remember those who came before us, and those who give themselves today so that you and I have the freedom we sometimes take for granted.

We don’t have to allow the commercial aspect of marketing to rush us into the next holiday on the ‘list’ so quickly! Remembering those who gave their lives for our freedom should be savored. Remembering those who lost their lives regardless of the battle they fought should be remembered in our hearts forever.

Loss affects every one of us. Death will greet us all, eventually. Risking your life for the lives of others is the ultimate sacrifice. Material loss means nothing to those who survived a battle…of any kind. Loss puts life into perspective. We need to continue being the change we want to see in our world and appreciate the gift that those who came before us gave. Battles are fought but not always won, leaving a legacy behind to be remembered.

The Heroes who fought to give us our freedom are being whisked away too quickly so we can drown in the madness of gross obsession for stuff none of us need. Stuff! Where has all the meaning gone? Wants and needs have become one of the same. They are NOT the same. What we need is to get back to the basics before we can’t see through all the distractions swirling around us, calling us like a deep seeded addiction calls an addict. Consumerism…we have all taken a hit of that drug. STOP the madness!

I don’t think we take enough time to appreciate what’s truly important in life. Health, freedom, spirit, love, friendship, unity and peace. The essence behind what is lovely in life is being over powered by marketing, money and greed. We can’t allow the human spirit to be set aside for such meaningless garbage!

We are reminded often lately how precious life is. The love that is present in our hearts for those who gave their lives selflessly can’t be forgotten. Lest We Forget is a phrase to caution us against forgetting those who died in war.

We can’t take any of our possessions with us when we leave this world, but I do believe when one is awarded with a ‘medal of honour’ it transcends with whom it belongs in spirit. Honour in your own way those who left you behind. Give those you loved their very own medal of honour to take with them when they go.

Human spirit rises in tragedy. We naturally reach out to those who experience a loss, it’s human nature. Compassion is alive and well. We are surrounded by Heroes in memory and in life as are we surrounded by Angels. I like to believe our Heroes get first dibs on the Angels waiting…and our Angels are past fallen Heroes giving themselves once again.

Remembrance Day ~ 2010

Remembrance Day is the one day a year where Canadians will pay homage to our fallen soldiers with ceremonies that remind us how lucky we truly are. Communities join together to thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Veterans fought for our freedom, Soldiers are fighting to keep our freedom. Without freedom, life would be very different.

Life without War is a dream we all share. Take a moment to reflect on what you are grateful for. I am grateful for those put their lives at risk for others every single day! Thank you!

Lest We Forget ~
