Awareness of that pain
Acknowledge that it is part of human existence
Aim for healing and forgiveness
Keep praying for wisdom and strength
Know that everything takes time
Be patient with yourself
Hang in there, never give up
Keep the faith
Communicate with your support group
Feed the mind with positive things
Surround yourself with people who will uplift you
Work on it
And one day you will just wake up
To find yourself free
Happy and at peace
With life’s unfolding events
You will see
There is truly room for forgiveness
All wounds heal
And love prevails…
Happy New Year to all my friends here in the blog world!
We are almost saying goodbye to 2015. Kiss your troubles goodbye. You will start 2016, wiser, stronger, more caring, more human.
Keep writing and be inspired : )
I checked my old wound that has been hurting for years.
I think it has healed. It does not look fresh at all.
When I looked at the old photos, I do not feel trembling anymore due to strong emotions. My heart is not pounding hard at all. My breathing is steady. My soul longs for reconciliation, for forgiveness and love.
I feel the time has come… I am ready to face it anytime. The signs have been around. There are days when I feel so courageous. Maybe I have finally let go of the past.
It is true that TIME heals all wounds. No matter how long it takes. Maybe it is the natural course of life. Healing happens when you also remove yourself in the hurting situation. You distance yourself from it. Distance, time, and hard work all help in the process of healing. Hard work for me is feeding your thoughts, your soul, your being with positivity, inspiration, understanding of self, others, humans, and LIFE. Then you will just know that you are okay. You are healed. You have moved on. And being scared, mad, afraid, is just a waste of your happy and beautiful life.
So if you are hurting or battling with something, know that you will be fine. You will wake up to a sunny day!

Having two little children has kept me abreast of kids’ stuff: nice place for kids, TV shows, nursery rhymes, mobile applications/games, and of course books. I find delight in them. As my children learn and have fun, so do I!
Maybe some of you are already familiar with Pete the Cat. This is one of my favorites. I think it shares a great lesson to people of all ages. For those who have not heard of this, you can check out your local library or this YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9GRHNE1vI4&feature=youtu.be
The story is about Pete, the cat, who goes walking down the street wearing his brand new white shoes. Along the way, his shoes change from white to red to blue to brown to WET as he steps in piles of strawberries, blueberries, and other big messes! But no matter what color his shoes turn to, Pete keeps moving, grooving, and singing his song. This book is teaching the little children about colors, particularly colors of different foods and objects. Going deeper, I see a message even for grown ups. It shows us to have a positive outlook in life. This is what majority of my blogs talk about. No matter how messy life can get, we should not let ourselves be devoured by sadness, hopelessness, and fear. We have to lift ourselves up or help someone else. Just keep going no matter what happens to you in life. Keep fighting the fight, facing each challenge, being the best that we can be whenever, wherever. We are just passing through life. Let us cherish the times we are alive. We aim to be happy and try to be positive.
No matter what you step in, keep walking along and singing your song…because it’s all good.
Enjoy the rest of your day, the rest of the week!
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes is an American children’s picture book written by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean, first published in 2008. Wikipedia
We talk about pain
It is part of being human
We experience different kinds of it
Be it physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual
Pain in different levels
Pain in different degrees
And when we experience it
We just want it to disappear
If you are experiencing pain right now
Close your eyes and breathe God’s love
I give hugs to you and say a prayer too
It will not be dark forever
There is nothing permanent in this world
Not even pain, not even pain
Pray hard and never lose hope
Someone surely cares about you!!!!

Today is exactly a year since I was emotionally liberated. So I lit up a candle in our little altar to give thanks. It was a beginning of a new day, a new hope, a new life, and a time for healing. I know I am almost there. I can feel it in my mind, my heart, and my soul. Forgiving myself and the person who might have caused me trouble. It is not easy to forget but it is possible to forgive… in time. So never shut the door. Keep believing in the good. You have to help yourself. Train your mind. Pray to God. There is always time for everything. Just hang in there. “Let the storm rage on” (line from the Song, Frozen). Then you will wake up to a better day.
