For the last couple of years, my life has literally been in limbo, or in a state of stasis, not only due to on-going parental health issues but also because of hold-ups with my regular day-to-day working situation.
To explain more, for ‘several’ months I’ve been going through a recruitment assessment process with the Australian public service, which recently completed -successfully I might add, – only; for a further delay to be instigated, meaning – I’ve not moved any further forward.
These events together with other delaying situations have made me step back and question my life, and it’s mitigating factors. Not only those caused by external forces, but also any steps I’ve; either taken, or not taken, and how they’ve impacted my growth.
Several questions arose. Some of which you may like to ask yourself?
- Am I where I expected to be, at this time of life?
- Am I as financially, emotionally & spiritually successful as I would like?
- Have I allowed outside forces (including individuals) to have power over my life? This includes their viewpoint, or should I say opinion.
- Do I find it easy to be derailed from my path, or life-goals?
- Have I contributed to my own seeming lack of motivation?
- Have I allowed my own inner laziness to take hold? (I’ll admit, I can be lazy, but can’t we all at times?)
- Do I regularly make excuses for the lack of progress in my life? Or….
- Do I subconsciously – perhaps deliberately – look for reasons and excuses, not to progress?
- Why do I allow distractions and interruptions to take precedence?
- Have I become too comfortable with my life?
- Where did my inner risk-taker go?
- Am I frightened of; what achieving my dreams may mean?
- Does the thought of being; successful and happy intimidate me?
- And my own personal; favourite – Am I; my own worst enemy?
As you can imagine, some of my answers brought up issues I’d rather not face, but rather than feel guilty, I’ve just decided, and it’s something I’m going to tell you all…..
It’s Never Too Late, To Start Over.
The good thing about life is; we’re allowed ‘do-overs’. There is no right or wrong way to live your life because it’s exactly that…..Your Life!
‘You’ set the rules!
Bear in mind, I don’t mean “Go out & rob a bank”. Naturally, there are strictures to abide by in society. Can you imagine telling the Judge “Julie, said there are no rules”. I don’t think that’ll work somehow, but I do mean…….
Within the parameters of your ‘own’ life; there really is no set-in-stone guidebook you have to follow. We just make it up as we go along, so…
Live Your Life Your Way, And……Don’t Apologise For It.
Success Comes In Many Forms.
From the child taking its first step,
To an elderly person still agile,
Success welcomes us all.
Neither age nor gender nor race
can impede our chance to succeed
in reaching our dream,
or our chosen goal.
Success is not; the biggest house,
the fastest car, or
the nameplate on your door,
but it is a compassionate heart,
a smiling face,
and challenges overcome,
Success is not; money in the bank,
stamps on your passport, or
fancy gym memberships
But it is; a helping hand,
a forgiving nature
and a welcoming home.
Success is not; a famous face,
a fancy title or
the latest cellular phone,
But it is; the will to try again,
when all others; would’ve given up.
Success is not;
the belief that everything,
is one’s due reward
But it is; faith,
Commitment and persistence,
Together with an inner trust,
that all will be well.
So if you’re ready to walk away from your dream,
after one too many setbacks, remember….
Failure is only temporary.
Success is eternal and has no firm definition.

Are these children; Indigo, Crystal or Rainbow souls?
Animals are more incredible than we can imagine…..just like Spirit, they; think, feel, love, hurt, and give unconditionally.
As a former skeptic of the ability to communicate with animals via telepathy I was curious as to what people who are not so open to such ideas would say about pet psychics.
I must say that I do not believe that everyone who claims to have this ability is truly being honest. Just like the psychic medium field is plagued with fraud, so is the animal communicator field. Sadly when one has an experience that does not meet their expectations, they tend to tell everyone about it. Those who have had a genuine experience do not always inform their friends and family since they do not want to deal with being ridiculed by others who have not had their own experience or whom do not have an open mind.
Even after discovering the ability to “speak” with the dead, I was not ready to accept that you could talk…
