Forward...

moving...
rocking...
flying...
forward...
backward...
forward...
constantly moving.

Today, I am aware of the movement in my life as I reflect on this past week. My week started out strong and I felt surrounded by the generous spirits around me. But than a wave washed over me that sent me rocking backward. As I rocked I could not but be taken over with fear. I felt another wave approaching but this time I allowed myself to be washed over by it and to my amazement I was not pulled under. A small set of wings held my heart and allowed me to see that the direction that I was going was forward. For we are constantly moving forward. At times it does not always feel that way, but today I am aware of it. Today, I do not fear the waves that are crashing around me, I am choosing to feel the smallest wings of love that are moving me forward.
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

PS: What set of wings can gently help you to rock forward?

Pattie,

this is awesome!! And wild! last night i was thinking about how i get caught on carnival rides (i mean..the ups and downs of trauma/drama - not even of my own making) - and the first thing i thought of looking at your affirmation picture is - up and down..those waves.

i LOVE the water - i'd be a fish if i could. lol.so, while i was looking at your picture i was being pulled into the water imagery. And i read your words - and i felt that rocking - like water does - and felt how it's similar to what i feel on the "carnival rides".

And i see something - when wings hold my heart (by giving me a different perspective or by the tender words of a friend or ?whatever?) - everything is different. I'm not on someone's carnival ride, I'm floating on waves.."forward...backward...forward"

wow!a whole 'nother thing!

thanks again!!
