Like The World Needs a Hug!
It’s been a while, I know and I’ve been working hard toward my dreams which you will see closer to the end of this post but for now this is what is on my mind.
How did we get to this place? How are we doing in this race? Really?
As much as I know that we are spiritual beings having a human experience it feels like we are human experiences trying to be spiritual. We’ve taken many steps forward but at times it feels like we are taking just as many backward. I don’t mean this to sound negative at all but the steps to peace are so much easier then it seems in the steps that are being taken and honestly I feel like the world just “needs a hug”.
I think this is something not just global but something we can look at and attend to in our daily and interpersonal lives.
What really matters?
What is really the problem?
I think we all get so caught up in our own grievances that sometimes we forget to see the very real connections we are missing for reasons that in hindsight are really not as important as we may think they are.
This isn’t to say that what you think or feel isn’t important but rather to ask yourself “how important are they” in that bigger picture?
- How worth it is it to hold on to something that causes you sadness or hurt?
- How worth it is it to carry that “something” into every experience and relationship going forward?
- How worth it is it allow that “something” to prevent you from embracing the life you deserve?
I ask you to think about those in your family line that were the most inspirational to you, the ones you admired or tried to “live up to” in respect to how much you loved or thought of them. Then ask yourself are you living a life they would be so proud of?
I’m just tidying up my 2nd book for the publication process to begin and feeling quite peaceful as well as eager to continue my forge ahead. I want to encourage everyone to believe that whatever you can imagine in your mind is actually available, believe in yourself and know that you have within you the ability to achieve whatever it is that you want to see in your life. Believing in yourself and your dreams is the key. Take the locks off from what you’ve placed in your mind as the barriers blocking you from achieving your dreams. They only exist in your mind, they do not indefinitely bind you, you come from a place where nothing is impossible. You can achieve whatever you believe for yourself and you need to aim high!
Trust me I’ve seen the impossible achieved in many of those that inspire me and they didn’t accomplish any great feat except to believe in themselves. If you are feeling like you can’t then look to those that encourage and inspire you and know that nothing is impossible. Just because you aren’t there yet doesn’t mean you can’t get there from where you are now, it just means you have to work. Opportunities are work and achievement is the result of what you may or may not have thought you were capable of accomplishing.
It’s not just those in the physical world that support you but those in the non-physical, they are all around you, hoping, wishing and encouraging you along.
Signs are all around us, pay attention!
Trust that those you love and who loved you will bring to you what you need. After all they do have your best interests at heart.

I am taking a meditation class. The teacher spoke words close to yours and they really made a difference! Think of your problems, see your problems, ask yourself; “does it matter?”. But don’t answer, let it float away. Good work Shell, you will be making a difference. 🙂 Definitely looking for the book.
