Life’s greatest lessons…

Be thankful for struggle, for pain, for discomfort. Life’s greatest lessons are in loss. For without loss, how could we value what remains? Or, what is to gain? Find victory in every defeat and never stop fighting… Every challenge is an opportunity. You shape who you will become. ~Jim Richmond~ Please visit:  www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/AmazingEternalGrace

Thankful for every Mum

Thankful for every Mum I don’t like Mothers Day to be honest. Do I write this every year? I grew up in a dysfunctional family and so mostly it brings back bad memories… or stressful tense filled ones…. I still don’t like it… so many expectations that are often not met…. I hardly even want to be on FB on mothers day as I don’t like reading all the gooshy messages LOL. I am thankful for all those who have beautiful stories to tell and Mum’s to thank but I am very aware of the pain that is felt by many as well. I love my mum to pieces. Unfortunately she has advanced Alzheimer’s now which is so sad. My heart goes out to everyone for whom this day is unpleasant, lonely and brings back bad memories…. they suffer silently and try to escape the reminders that it’s not a…

Looking UP not out…

Looking up and not out… Life gets me down you know… I might seem super confident and positive and I am but actually if I don’t keep my eyes on the right things it really gets to me a lot. So much happening around us and I don’t want to avert my eyes. I want to see things and be a part of the solution and know where the help is needed and I want to be aware… I want to acknowledge people’s struggles and by that I honor them. (That’s what I like to do). However, when I look AROUND it affects me a lot…. in so many ways… I can feel myself get dragged into the hopelessness… I don’t know any hope in this world in the end, except Jesus. This week it really got me… blindness of the world, the inward nature of people, the wish that…

Decisions we have to make…

Decisions we have to make… Sometimes there are decisions you would rather not have to make, things you don’t want to have to do… But, it will sometimes come to it…. And then the best thing is to do what you need to do. Hands up who loves to avoid these situations!!! My hand used to be up a LOT more than it is these days, but by now I have learnt a lot of lessons that have taught me that avoiding isnt always the best thing to do. Avoiding prolongs the pain, delays the resolution, entangles people’s hearts and minds, makes the imagination go wild and can presume all manner of things that aren’t really true. More often than not these days I face things, sooner rather than later…  I know that the pain of going through it now is better than living with pain for a long time,…

Love, pain, hurt….

Love, pain, hurt…. Love, pain and hurt…. They can send me back into my shell… In some ways I am becoming more like this… in some ways… Its hard not to climb back in when you get hurt… but it’s not in my nature to be a clam in a shell… It’s a bit of a tug of war.. I am sure love will win… ~Cam Richmond~ Please visit: www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage

Finding Hope for a Brand New Day….

I’m thinking of you all that are struggling right now today… My heart goes out to you all..I have sat and read through my whole Newsfeed on Facebook and all the joy, hope, positivity, life and love that was contained in there. While it was so good to read and just what we need to be reading… I think of the ones that struggling right now… I sit here in bed, just sensing the anxiety that is going on inside me, it’s about a whole lot of different things, it’s not my choice, and I don’t want to feel this way but I do and my place is to share where I am at because I know that there are many others of you that are feeling the same way as me, and probably much worse… If you struggle with depression or anxiety it’s a very real thing, most of…
