New Days, New Options

Each day that we wake up we have the opportunity to make choices that can make our lives easier or more difficult. When you live in poverty and you see your children without food and decent clothing or shelter you believe there is no other way than this. How can you ever get out of it? There is a path that you can take. It will not be an easy path. Life rarely makes it so. The path may be crooked and the hills steep with gravel and mud that make climbing to the top seem impossible. But, it can be done. With perseverance, dedication and faith it can be done. The faith in yourself that you can do better for yourself and your children. Look outside of yourself, look up into the sky, breathe the air and take a moment to focus. Find solutions within yourself and resolve to move forward and it can happen.

Reach out to the hands that may be there to help you and if there are none then go out and seek them. Reach out your hands to others that need the help as well. Soon there could be a network of people helping each other to stand taller and a line of strength that will help you reach the peak of that slippery mountain.

Blessings, prayers and thoughts for the easing of your burdens. Peace. Image

  1. I just wanted to tell you that every time I open your blog and read your words I feel this soothing, calming energy. Some of the most random strangers have that effect on me, from grocery store cashiers to bank tellers. I thought it was something that could only happen, in person, and when it does, I never have the guts to tell them how wonderful their energy feels, so I’m glad I get to say it to you. It’s been my experience that the people who have the energy that you have seem to be rare. It’s pure awesomeness.

    1. Thank you so much! I am so glad that I can do this for you. I know you have been in a hard place. This is what I want to do, what I hope I can do. I want people to open my blog and feel that someone cares and loves them. Even if I never meet them in person.

  2. Good morning Pavanne! Thank you so much for your encouraging and uplifting thoughts. This was posted days ago but it was precisely what I needed this morning. You have been such a bright spot in my days and for that I am eternally grateful. I am struggling right now. Whether the struggles are internal or external, your words always provide endless comfort. Thank you for helping me stand up when I feel like my feet are constantly being swept out from under me.
