ripple. effects. or is it {A}ffects? either way...you know what i mean.


i am not sure that you are all aware of the tragic winter  involving the loss of so many beautiful souls we had locally here in my community...
as a result a gathering of people started a movement called WINGS of HOPE.
being closely involved with this group....i have the honor of being able to post on the WINGS of HOPE blog every Friday.

and....

since i MISS so much reaching out to my UNITY FRIENDS...i wanted to copy and paste my post over here.

if you would like to FOLLOW the WINGS blog - where there are SEVERAL different people posting very INSPIRATIONAL thoughts, and materials...PLEASE CLICK HERE.

in the meantime - although it has nothing to do with CRAFTING or STAMPING...i am looking forward to starting to share more of the writing that i have missed so much.

BECAUSE it has EVERYTHING inspiration DOES have something to do with UNITY.
right?

hee, hee...i just read the sentence above - and i want to leave it in the post, cause it was so full of mistakes, and i LOVE mistakes. lol.

let me try again....
BECAUSE EVERYTHING INSPIRATIONAL DOES HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH UNITY.
that is what i meant. lol.

here is some rambling thoughts.  
straight from my heart to yours.



 ripple. effects. or is it {A}ffects? either way...you know what i mean.

one.decision.
has a ripple effect.
at each and every moment.
even the teenie tiny ones.
even the ones we don't consciously DECIDE on.
isn't that crazy?

  a LOOK we don't necessary intend to have on our face...
our body language...
our laughter....
our sadness.....
our whispers....
even just our presence....

we consistently send forth ripple effects, AKA: our ENERGY. - out to all those around us.
at all times, in every moment.

when you really stop to think about it.
the interconnection of your life with the lives of others is SO beautiful.
yet...it can cause SO MANY different emotions at all times.

no matter how hard we try...
we don't always get the results from our actions that we want...
even if we have the best of intentions.

so how do we find peace with the fact our lives impact other lives so very much?
how are we SURE that everything we do is causing the effect that we WANT it to?
sorry to say...it is impossible.

people are going to interpret your words your actions, and just plain YOU - according to their own experiences.
they have no way of knowing where YOU are in your life, nobody shares ALL the same experiences.  they only know where they are, what they have been through.
....and ALL is interpreted accordingly.

every now and then people will misinterpret your intentions.
every now and then YOU YOURSELF will misinterpret your intentions.
PERFECTION in all of us is SO FAR AWAY.
and that is alright. 
we are just doing the best we know how with where we are at.
...and remembering that about EVERYONE is so very important.

empathy.
we should use it always.  or at least try VERY hard to.
and along with that....
all you can really do is....
and go with it.

live.
with confidence.
and FEEL the LOVE all around.
YOU are BEAUTIFUL.
just the way you are.
FLAWS and ALL.

xoxo,
angela.

Angela, love your thoughts. So true. All we can do is try to be the best we can be, and learn to be empathetic with others, because we don't know what they're going through, or where they have been. Very insightful!

Hey girlie...so funny this happens in my life all the time. What a funny time to post this (you have no idea) ....I can only imagine what one little smile, or laugh, or look brought this on. You are correct, JUST BEING YOU brings out the most interesting reactions to others.....let them eat cake I say! Love Auntie.xoxoxo
