The Winds of Change

The winds of change are blowing in my life again.  Sometimes they are soft, gentle breezes.  Other times, like now, they are a full-blown tempest of raging winds.  I guess that’s what happens when you mentally decide to clear the clutter from your life.  You see, those gale-force winds blow away anything that’s not strongly anchored down.  In my case, it’s mostly a long-term relationship.  It takes two people working at it to really anchor a relationship to any kind of foundation.  Evidently, I was the only one putting in those anchor bolts.  You know, it really sucks … I’ve been doing my part for 7 years and thought things were getting pretty well shored up.  A minor conflict of plans completely tore things apart and the pieces are nowhere to be found.

So, now what?  Like I said earlier, I had decided to clear emotional/psychological clutter from my life and have been working on staying centered and balanced.  Evidently, this relationship was clutter that needed to be cleared … this whole thing happened in the course of just a couple of hours.  I’m sad as I really love this person, but he’s made his choices about priorities and I’m no really one of them.  I don’t know about you, but I want to be in a fully committed relationship and not just someone’s “part-time lover” that’s used to fill in empty spaces on an ever more complicated schedule.

Staying grounded has become my priority as centered and balanced will come from that.  Fully connecting with the divine and my angelic guides for direction is also my priority … they will help me map out my course of action and put me in a position to do the things I need to do for myself and for others.

Why do I tell you all this?  Because people tell me that I really have it all together … no, I don’t.  There is a lot going on behind the scenes of my life and there is stuff going on behind the scenes of everyone’s life.  You just never know unless you’ve been let in and allowed to see.  What you see as a grumpy old lady in line at the store today could be someone in my position … filled with sadness and confusion and experiencing grief and loss.  This is where compassion comes in … when we have compassion for humanity … what’s going on in their life doesn’t matter … we are kind simply because it’s who we are.  And in being kind, everyone wins.  Some people in those lines are just plain mean … others are like me and that smile you share could make all the difference in the world.

So, how about you … what little kindness can you do today to make a difference?
