Gettin’ By With A Little Help From My Friends

Published March 12, 2022 by tindertender

I have seen and unseen allies.
I draw upon their strength.
I join forces with my friends and I flourish.

I focus on the happy Spirits in my life, the ones that build me up instead of tearing me down. I am rich with the joy and beauty brought to me by my friends. I embrace their love, and I thrive.

You have seen and unseen allies. Draw upon their strength. Join forces with friends and flourish.

Today I will focus on the good and happy Spirits in my life. The ones that build me up instead of tearing others down. I am rich with the joy and beauty brought to me by my friends. Today I will contact a friend and tell them of their worth. I will embrace their love and thrive.

Focus on how far you have come. Not how far you have to go. You will find help in unexpected places.

I am a beautiful, courageous traveler on a journey toward ultimate happiness. Today I am grateful for how far I have come and how much I’ve been given. I am grateful for the companions I find along the trail. I will remember that I have been placed on this Earth to discover what I really want to do and to be true to myself. I will find my own way and I will live my dream.

Something wonderful is happening. Change is in the air. Open yourself to blessings on their way.

Today I know that something wonderful is going to happen. I will keep my eyes and ears open for the guideposts to these unknown blessings. I give thanks for change and the faith that life is about to get even better than I ever thought possible.

Strength is gentle. True kindness has wings. Love in action endures.

Today I will let kindness grow in me. I will be gentle with myself and give my soul the love it deserves. I will focus on everlasting love and let it gently flow into the world. I am alive, my gratitude knows no bounds, and my heart now overflows with love and kindness.

Gently flow through the turbulence. Life has the ability to shape you. Bend, don’t break.

Today when the storms of life come blowing I will bend with them but not break. I will be brave and let go of the shore with courage. I will not be caught up with the things I cannot change but focus on what I can and flow. I will swim in the great sea of life and not be afraid because the winds of positive change are on my side.

Healing Effort

Published February 10, 2020 by tindertender

“To heal will require real effort, and a change of heart, from all of us. To heal means that we will begin to look upon one another with respect and tolerance instead of prejudice, distrust and hatred. We will have to teach our children — as well as ourselves — to love the diversity of humanity…. We can do it. Yes, you and I and all of us together. Now is the time. Now is the only possible time. Let the Great Healing begin.”

— Leonard Peltier, Native American activist (Turtle Mountain Chippewa)

Time Is Odd for Conversation

Published February 6, 2020 by tindertender

There have been many conversations throughout the years.

About hair styles
World affairs

You name it, any number of things.

This past weekend I spent time with friends … adopted family really. At one point many women were seated around the table, talking.

It was odd. It is rare that I am seated with so many women in close proximity and it dawned on me, we were all speaking at once in varying conversation.

It occurred to me how loud it was, and I apologized, suddenly conscious of the circle.

I mentioned to them at one point about this really great under-eye cream I recently found which is diminishing the puffiness under my eyes … pretty cool. But they didn’t seem that interested.

I sit and think of this now and am very happy for the newest friends I am privileged to spend time with.

Unlike others I have known.

It is clear what is valued and what isn’t really all that important.

And it is beautiful.

For you feel seen.

It goes without saying … seen as you are, all of it, and accepted, and loved.

Being in this environment allows a releasing of tensions, a load shifts and eases. The energy and the graciousness of each person, as a combined unit, is so special as they honor each other.

I’ve been blessed to now know several deep thinkers, creative experts and tradition keepers. It is a real pleasure making fun with them, learning of the Sacred Ways.
