WHISPERS IN THE WIND
The silence gently caressed my mind
as butterflies flew in the field
The sound of everyday life was a distant memory
as I heard the voices
Not with my ears
But with my soul
Whispers in the wind
as the blue sky morphed
into pictures painted with clouds
And all that troubled me
like smoke rising in the air
The chords of life
connected with electric impulses
sent understanding deep
into the cells of my being
and all that I needed to know
was revealed in my mind
I am not a huge fan of my birthday. In fact for many years something bad would happen the day before my birthday. The more I expected it, the more the universe conspired to make it come true.
The older I get…and I can’t believe I am THIS OLD…the more I realize I want to celebrate my life. Partly because the alternative is, well…undesirable, and mostly because I LOVE MY LIFE!
When I look back on how it started I am amazed at how far I have come on this healing journey. There are ebbs and flows – times when I flashback and find myself locked in the well, and times when I am at complete peace in the moment and radiating perfect love.
On the continuum of healing I would say I am well past the middle (which is probably really good since I am well past middle age!) This also means that I am well past the middle in my journey towards self-love.
Join me today and witness me standing in my truth as I put myself out here on full display for all to see, and as I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME (and I mean it!)

Hi Judy 😊 Giant smiles and a warm heart…that’s what you are and what you gave to me too!! I do feel so very blessed and I am a bit surprised. This feels a little like aging with grace and I thought I would fight it kicking and screaming.
And…today in the pool was the very first time in my life that I actually felt like I was SWIMMING!! I was relaxed and felt my body gliding through the water…kind of like a metaphor for life right…all is wonderful and I am Blessitude 💜 Thank you, Judy!

Hi Miriam 😊 Thank you – Thank you!! I had a wonderful birthday and was most surprised that I embraced turning 60 instead of fighting that mother nature continues to lay lines on my face!!
And you are correct!!! EVERY DAY IS A GREAT DAY TO CELEBRATE BEING ALIVE!!

Don’t know how I missed this!! A belated Very Happy Birthday to you, Lorrie xx It is so inspiring to read your journey and I am motivated to embrace mine. I am yet to pass the half way mark and I’m sure I will. Healing is slow process for me and there more I read of your journeys, I am strengthened to take one more steps. Take care and continue sharing as your stories continue to bless many.
Thank you, Georgina 💜 I feel so blessed…and humbled by your response. I won’t lie, there are times when I wonder if I should continue to share (especially the truly dark things) and then I get a response such as this from you…and I know the answer is simply YES. Thank you kind soul for touching my heart today. Many Sweet Blessings…and keep moving forward no matter what!!
Birthdays are always triggering for me. May your 60th year be glorious and filled with love! Abundant peace and blessings to you, MW ❤️
😊😊 Yaayyy!! Thank you MW!! I am rockin 60 and plan to keep the good stuff going Sweet Blessings 🌞🌻💜

I think I may have set a personal best for “Happy Belated Birthday”. I loved this post, I found it so beautiful and it wrapped me in its arms and I felt like I was floating in a collage of beautiful thoughts, moments and memories. My belated wish for you is that your path is scattered with these same things. I truly believe it is what you give to this world and I truly believe it is what will be gifted with in return. LOVE, Harlon
My dear dear friend! Thank you so much for this beautiful response, Harlon. I read your latest post yesterday and did not have the time to respond, but I wanted to tell you that I am here for you…I am a cheerleader in your corner and I think of you so often and always send a giant hug and beautiful white healing light!
LOVE is the answer…it is always the answer. I hope the world recognizes this just a little bit more each day.
I know your journey has had its struggles, but I also know that your soul is so strong and so capable! When I said love is always the answer…I include self-love in there…possibly at the top of the list! It is a path we all walk and it is not always easy, but I know we can do it…I know we can.
Sending so much love your way <3 <3
Sorry I missed this Lorrie!! Happy belated 60th!! It comes so quick….makes me appreciate the simple moments more!! I hit 67 this year and still can’t wrap my head around it!!

Congratulations on your 60th birthday 🌹 🌹 🌹 🌹 🌹 🌹
