the list of things
I want to say

I don’t like
can be ever growing.

Then I realized
it is about my attitude.
I can look at these things
as chores,
as things I dread doing,
or I can get
a new attitude.

I can see them
as an opportunity,
a time of decluttering,
a time of creating holy space,
a time of creating a sacred space

It is all about our attitude
and how we perceive things.
They can be opportunities or not.
May we be intentional about
approaching things with a new attitude
and give thanks instead of complaining.

The work is not in my reading.
The work begins when
I am done.
When I sit with the ideas,
reflect on them,
decide on whether or not
to let them in my heart
and nurture me

The work begins when
I put the book down.
When I reflect on the ideas,
the teachings,
the gifts,
and the inspiration.

It doesn’t matter if it is
fiction or non fiction,
sacred or secular,
academic or non-academic,
there is something for me
to think about
and thus the work begins
when my eyes are done.

That is when my heart works.
Sometimes it is about what grade
most reflects what my student
attempted to show me.
Sometimes the work is for me;
it is about me releasing a belief,
changing a behavior,
being willing to grow and evolve.
Even as I read my own work,
the work begins
when my eyes are done
and I open my heart
and continue the journey.

Are you passionate about what you are doing?

The world is full of liars
Those who fill us with doubt
Who tell us we are worthless
Who tell us what we lack
Who tell us what we cannot do.
Who make us doubt our ability to grow,
to transform,
to scale mountains

There are also those
Who speak truth in love.
Who remind us we are amazing
Who help us see the gifts within us
Who point out our strengths,
our gifts,
and our abilities
to make something out of nothing
and overcome the mountains
we learn to climb

We each come
to this world
with a purpose
with a gift
with something we are called
to complete.
We each have our way of
transforming the world
of overcoming the mountains
in our lives.
We can do this,
when we choose to
live our truth.

The question is
are you living your truth.
