If it has not become apparent to you yet, I am into bright colors with corresponding shoes. This is what is giving me life these days as I struggle to stay above water. Although, in good news, I am staying calm despite the schedule. I am showing up and doing the best I can, and I am going home knowing it is enough. I have also been more focused on family life—soccer being an avenue making it happen. I love when what felt against me before is now for me. This is the work of redemption.
So, ironically, when I got in my car on the way to work several songs about fire came on. I guess my spirit was calling down fire and my outfit was subconsciously picked out on purpose . Ha.
The song I want to highlight, though, is Garth Brook’s song “The Change.” A song he sang as a tribute to the victims of the OKC bombing. Friends, we have been living through a lot our whole life—I will say more about that later. This is the line I want to talk about: It is like trying to stop a fire with the moisture from a kiss”
That is what it is like what we are up against. But now I know my gift as a 4 is that I am not afraid of what we deem as a dark time. I am made for this kind of time. I find hope and love when it goes dark. Darkness was my protection when my world fell apart. It comforted me and I heard a new story from the one I was living. I am working with people currently who are helping me step out and live in the light again and tell this story. We need each other—solar and lunar spiritual people.
Here is what Garth said in his song that made me create this post:
And I hear them saying, “You’ll never change things, And no matter what you do it is still the same thing.” But it is not the world that I am changing. I do this so the world will know that it will not change me.
Not only will the world not change me, I found me. Elsa (me) and Wilshire (my community). I have more to say about that later too. It will be a fun post.
