The Fifth Agreement

The Fifth Agreement (is seeing your whole reality with the eyes of truth).

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word – Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally – Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions – Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best – Your best is going to change from moment to moment. It will be different when you are healthy as opposed to when you are sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

5. Be Skeptical, But Learn to Listen – Don’t believe yourself or anybody else. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind the words, and you will understand the real message.

The result of practicing The Fifth Agreement is the complete acceptance of everybody else just the way they are.

The reward is your eternal happiness.

Never give up on the Heart...

Have your heart ever been tugged at both ends?

One end is logically informing you of all the facts and negative aspects,
While the other end is quietly persuading you to have more faith.
The logical and collected end seems to be winning and convincing,
As if letting go is the best decision ever,
While the quiet and pleading end continues to urge you to look again,
As if letting go will be a chance lost forever.

The facts are glaring and pessimistic,
And you are fearful and worried.
Your hope is tiny and yet persistent,
Making you wonder if there could be another possibility.
Most of the facts points out to a disappointing and gleam future,
And yet a small part within you glows with the promise of a gem.

If only all of it is rotten and can be thrown away without hesitation,
But life has a way of challenging you and your beliefs,
Posing you dilemmas and mysteries for you to deal with.

Do you drop it believing that it is for the best?
Or do you hold on believing that it will turn out for the best?
Do you cave in to others' opinions and beliefs?
Or do you cling to your own uncertainty and remain true to yourself?
What if your logical end tell you to lose heart and let go now?
And yet your quiet end continues to want to hold on a while longer?

Do you listen to the kind intentions of your friends,
Thinking and agreeing with them that they know the best for you?
Or do you shut up your deafening inner mind chatter,
And search for that the answer that lies within your heart?
You recall that people always seem to know what is best for you,
And many times they proved themselves right.
But what about being true to yourself and listening to your own heart,
And finding out for yourself what works for you and what makes you tick?

Look carefully,
It is not a tug of war of your heart as you first thought,
It is a tug of war between your mind and your heart,
Do not let yourself be fooled.

Christina Aguillera - Beautiful

A Simple Day

To wake up in the morning, knowing you're still alive,

To know you have a choice each day, starting afresh,

To find joy in everyday, acknowledging simple pleasures,

To live in the present moment, engaging your awareness,

To count the blessings in life, believing abundance abounds,

To enjoy the work you do, following your passion,

To make a little difference, adding to the universe,

To be what you are, listening to your inner being,

To give away love, rejoicing in the chance to give,

To receive love with gratitude, feeling good about it,

To smile at strangers, seeing how infectious it can be,

To speak words of kindness, spreading a little warmth,

To understand with compassion, opening up your mind,

To play with children, nurturing your inner child,

To appreciate the nature, soaking up all the beauty,

To feel the warmth of the sun, glowing upon your skin,

To listen to the falling rain, pattering on the grounds

To taste the richness of food, sliding down your throat,

To smell the freshness of air, filling up your lungs,

To see the falling night, concluding a well-lived day,

That's life, that's living,
That's the core of what really matters...
And if I've missed out anything,

Please let love make up for all of it.

I am a blessed woman, even through my trials and tribulations. Thank you God for loving me, my family and my friends.

"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect."

Luke 6:37

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven." Luke 6:37

Lookin' For Love - Lyrics - Johnny Lee

Follow Your Heart

Follow your heart .
Follow your heart,
never surrender your dreams.
Constantly work towards your goals.
Believe in yourself, and always be truthful.
Take time to enjoy life’s pleasures.
Keep your mind open to new experiences.
Think before acting,
but don’t forget the joys of spontaneity.
Make your own decisions.
Look out for yourself, but remember
that you share this universe with others.
Look for the good in others,
everybody has their own song to sing.
Live each moment to the fullest,
for a moment too soon becomes a memory.
Look for opportunities, not guarantees.
Hope for the best.
Give people a chance to love you,
for that is how you learn to love.
Live your life for yourself,
but always be considerate of others.
Believe in tomorrow, for it holds the key
to your dreams.

Post Birthday

I had a great birthday party, thrown by a friend, with lots of friends and family present. A very special time, and I am truly blessed for such wonderful people in my life.

There was the "one" missing person. You know who you are. Our Mother's share a birthday, the 19th of September. I wish mine was still here to celebrate with her. I sure do miss her. I miss you too! Always and forever...

So long for now...
