I close my eyes and I can imagine anything I want to. My life can be the way I want it to be. I can look the way I want to. My home can be the way I want it to be. All is ideal. Of course, when I open my eyes reality reigns. I have found out the only way for me to be able to truly live my life and to be authentic is to open my eyes.
My life lived in reality has such richness to it. I have to face some situations that don’t thrill me. That’s okay. I would rather face what has to be done, whatever that is, than to imagine it’s not there.
My life has been infused with rough periods. I have gotten through them. As a result, my life changed for the better. I didn’t think that would happen. I was in the depths with nothing to hang onto. I would wish it had been different. If only I could go back and do things differently then all would be okay. Instead, I opened my eyes. I’m so glad that I did.
To be aware is to wake up from a deep sleep and see the world through a clearer lens. Love becomes stronger. Compassion fills your heart. Acceptance takes front stage. Life is lived on a different level. Every moment counts. Time spent on this planet is treasured. Good days are abundant. Trying days are accepted. It’s like looking at life through a child’s eyes but with wisdom.
Wake up every day and fill your heart with love, compassion and acceptance.
