Life as we know it...

‘Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.’ Dr Seuss

Hello everyone,

It has been a while since I have blogged but that is because a lot has been happening in my life and also probably in your lives. I know that people do not want to be over informed but also like to hear what is going on in the world.

This is my world...last week I lost a very close friend. This was a blow, a real body slam, for me.

As expected as it was, this still came presented to me as a deep grief. Even though I can still talk to my friend ‘in Spirit’ I am sad that she can no longer rush into my home, laugh, sweep the neatness aside and make me through caution to the wind. I am grateful that she allowed me to be part of her life and I am reminded of her each time I smell Patchouli. Did you know that scent is one of the strongest evocators of emotion? At the moment this scent is following me around. Each time I sit quietly it wafts to me even though no one else can seem to smell it...I love the way that Spirit works.

I also see her in the projects that we did together and all the crafty stuff we used to make. She always had time for me and she made sure that I felt loved and accepted by her. Her laugh rings around my home. Yes, I have lost her, but I had her in my life. How lucky am I?

Everyone we meet and know adds something to our life. Spend your time on those that add in a positive way and leave go those that make you doubt who you really are. A true friend will see below the spin and hype that we sell ourselves. They will also see the stories that we tell to ourselves so that we feel the way that we want to feel – like ‘I’m so terrible, that is why I get nowhere...’

Listen to your friends. They are the markers of light on the path of your life. YOU are lucky if you have more than a handful of friends in this life. People seem to want hundreds of friends. Facebook shows that need in people, but how can you be a close friend to hundreds of people. There is only time/space/energy for a handful in the inner sanctum. Dozens in the second circle and as many as you like in the outer circle, but do remember that not all friends are equal emotionally.

All people may be equal in color and value, but not in emotional value to you.

(Pick up your phone and call your friends. Write them a surprise letter. No one gets a real letter anymore but I still remember the excitement of that lovely envelope arriving, wondering what would be inside it. Be a surprising friend. )

Grief – what a tough but beautiful emotion. Grieving is a good emotion. As uncomfortable as it can get, it is also inspirational and it encourages us to revisit what we are doing, where we are at and how we can become a more perfect version of the person we are. A friend does not sit easy with the stories that you tell yourself, and helps you to see the untruth behind the versions we often play for ourselves. As uncomfortable as that truth may be, they will show you the truth. Grief is a way to honour our loss.

What can a friend do? Often the hardest truth for us to hear is how great we are. Life has a way of making us all feel insecure or less than we want to be. Isn’t that odd? It is our task to accept who and what we are and yet we are conflicted so often by other people’s versions of us.

A friend will add to you and you will walk away inspired in some way.

Yes, we all play untrue versions because it is hard to see ourselves clearly. Find friends who will tell you the truth and love you because of it. A friend who will love you because of the person you are and not who you were or who you may yet become. Who You Are.

I am in Grief. It hurts; I have cried a lot, I will cry a lot more. But I am glad that I had the chance to love this person enough to truly cry for my loss.

Even though I now have the loss of my friend to live through, she was worth every moment. I am blessed.

Head full of promise, road full of doubt

There is a place inside of me that whenever I become aware of it, it mostly seems to rest uneasily. I can feel that place at the oddest of times, like when I am sitting quietly, or even talking to someone who seems to have it 'all-together'. Sometimes it sneaks up on me when I am just waking up from sleep, in that beautiful somnambulistic state.

I know this feeling. As uncomfortable as it may be, it is still an old and familiar friend. It is the feeling that keeps me looking within and not running away. I have had to learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable because I realise that when you are feeling like you are King of the world, without any discomfort, you start to become complacent and then you stop seeing the truth.

The risk with complacency is that although it is comfortable it allows you to stop trying to achieve more goals or different goals. And that is stagnation.

We can never still be alive and finished with the journey. We will never be finished with the striving and life really was not meant to be easy. Successful people become comfortable with that knowledge. They realise that there will always be a 'next challenge' and that you are only as good as your last result, and then they stop worrying about it all and focus on the challenge.

As long as there is breath in your body and a heart that is beating in your chest, you are not done with the journey. You are still on the road, a spiritual hitch hiker with your towel and a toothbrush as your companion.

It is a road that we all travel down. Our heads are mostly full of doubt, but somewhere inside that carefully crafted state of neurons firing there is also faith.

Faith cannot imply a state lacking doubt. It cannot imply a life of ease. And affirmations will not create the happy place that we all deserve. But it will allow us to forgive ourselves if we do not achieve what we thought we were going to achieve and then it beautifully creates the drive, the yearning, the impetus to get up from where you have fallen so that you can strive again. You achieve what you believe.

Eddison created 100 light-bulbs that did not work before he got a bulb that did. Mother Theresa doubted the existence of God. Nelson Mandela languished in prison a very long time before he became President of South Africa. Each of them had a road full of doubt in front of them. Yet each of them kept walking.

So what was it that kept them walking that road to the place where they were meant to be? What key essential ingredient did they have that so many other people find hard to resource? Was it a guiding light? Or Angels? Unlikely. Angels don't really like to make themselves as obvious as we want them to be. Angels and faith both speak in whispers. Whispers thT are more often found in the everyday, not in the books that you are told you should read. After all, wouldn't that be too easy?

I also think that each of these people had a faith in themselves. An understanding that everything, from our bodies to our thoughts to our dreams are all made of the same stuff.

I also think that each of them had the ability to look within and see the truth of who they are and who they know they can be, without blaming themselves for an overly long time for what they - or others - may see as failure.

Everybody comes and goes from our lives. The only person who will stay with you forever is you.

Believe in you. Have faith in you. Be gentle with you. And allow yourself to achieve whatever you can achieve.

Even on a long hard road road of doubt you can have a head full of promise.
