AT THE END OF THE DAY...

It take s great deal of courage to stand in your own truth. To listen to your own internal voice as the prevailing guide. That internal voice is God whispering. Always whispering. You gotta work hard at hearing that internal voice. Everyone around you is screaming do this, be this, say this, go here, go there, think this, think that...whew! All with the best intentions...sometimes.

At the end of the day it about trusting what I know and what I think. Not bending to the manipulations of the world and folks who think they have a better vision of your life than you do. I am not interested in telling folks how to be...I am however interested in living my life to the best of my ability. I am merely not thankful for living...I am thankful for the quality of life I get to live. I am thankful that my trials and tribulations have not broken my spirit. I am grateful of all the next 24 hours I get to work this life out my way...ahem God's way!

At the end of the day I have to hear my voice. I have to chart my path and walk in my truth.
I appreciate suggestions, advice, council and well-wishing, and I have on occassion sought it out, but really it is about what I know to be right for me.

I like what I see when I am looking at me while I am walking past the mirror...Mary J. Blige, Fine Fine Fine.

Sista GP,
It is so easy top adopt someone else's perception of who we are.

Miz,
High Five back at you!


Dallas Black,
Thank you. The world can be loud and well meaning, but you gotta tune out that noise and follow your own path.

Odd, how some think only the mentally ill & schizophrenic hear voices. But The God Voice is ever present, & it behooves us all to listen more carefully.


Snatch JOY!

One.

I hear it all, the good and the bad, to bad there is so much bad to filter out!

I have been recieving many mixed signals lately, it is wearing me down, at the end of this day, I am exhausted... and ready to begin the rest of my life.

Very well stated and so true the moment I started listening to that inner voice that I now know as God my world was a much better place.

amen. it is so easy to be swayed, by this and that. and then, for the process of realizing (or just being) who and what we are to cease. it's amazing how we give, bit by bit, so much of ourselves away

Lovebabz, if you aren't a writer or motivational speaker, then you should be!

LOVEBABZ: That's the only way to go, but I'm stubborn about certain things as you know.

Another little gem I picked up along the way is that everybody, myself included is so self-absorbed that nobody is obsessing over YOUR choices. That's in a person's imagination. The corollarly is that EVERYONE GOSSIPS ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE ALL THE TIME. That doesn't mean anything either.

Indecision and regret don't seem to be part of your trip anyway.
