I Celebrate Myself…

Reconnect

Sometimes this world gets unbearable, words are misunderstood; loneliness begins to feel almost like a permanent reality. Then there are songs that lift you up and out of the darkness… such was true for Hezekiah Walker’s “I Need You to Survive” this morning, which reminded me that I am indeed connected to something bigger than myself, to this vastness that is humanity.

My heart is filled with hope and although there is still an ache there, I know I am not alone.

Upon Reflection

20140613-081323-29603429.jpg

Each morning I wake up, I work hard to not take it for granted that I am here. The realities of death and life are more poignant as I get older. I am so grateful for this moment of reflection. The fog of the morning beckons me to be still and sing praises to the Most High. I am in Prospect Park where the chirping of the birds and the gentle waves of the lake are soothing. The intermittent passing of ducks on the lake and birds flying low so that their wingtips touch the water leaves me in awe. And every time a bird flies close to me, so close that I can hear the fluttering of their wings, I feel even more blessed.

I am blessed…

This afternoon, I laid in savasana, the final yogic pose in a yoga session where your body is completely at still, and  I listened to the words of Ben Harpers song, I am Blessed. I have never hard that song before and it was a sweet addition to my day, which I took off.

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday with a birthday brunch. It was lovely. It wa perfect.  In savasana listening to Ben Harper’s words and the drums playing, I could not resist the tears forming under my closed eyelids. There is no denying the blessings that I have.
