Recently I  read a question starting with “Born to…” and leaving the rest blank for our imaginations to fill in.  Another was of seeking our purpose while here; and beyond.

So here goes for my thoughts for me personally.BORN TO…

• Be kind and loving
• Serve God by serving others
• Learn
• Be encouraging
• Inspire
• Write
• Connect
• Walk God’s path for me now and forever

I would love to hear from you, with what you believe your were
Born to….

Heart – Give your heart lovingly

Would you like to know that you are visible to the world around you, that you matter? 

On Oprah’s Farewell show she left us with a loving message filled with inspiration and encouragement.  She said one of the things she learned through all these years is that everyone wants to be SEEN, HEARD, and VALIDATED.  She wanted to do that for others…to really see them, hear them, and help them feel validated.

There have been times in my life when I felt invisible.  Occasionally still do.

I hate to think that I have made someone else feel that way, but I probably have, without meaning to.  I would hope that none of us mean to make someone feel invisible.

I try to open my heart and my spirit to be truly aware of others and their feelings.  Not great at it yet, but working on it 🙂

Have you ever been in a small group, even just two or three others where you were completely ignored, left out?

Where has it gone
My inspiration
Where are they now
The words

It’s like the heart
The soul and spirit
Have been put to rest
Gone into hibernation

Holy Spirit stir my being
From this slumber awaken me
Fill my heart with song
My soul with your love

Infuse my spirit
With your inspiration
Guide my hand
In the writing of the words

May the writings shared
Encourage and inspire
Bring joy and cleansing tears
Healing to mind, heart, and spirit.

Heart - Give your heart lovingly

Would you like to KNOW… that you are visible to the world around you? 

Yesterday on Oprah’s Farewell show she left us with a loving message filled with inspiration and encouragement.  She said one of the things she learned through all these years is that everyone wants to be SEEN, HEARD, and VALIDATED.  She wanted to do that for others…to really see them, hear them, and help them feel validated (my words). 

Many times in my life I have felt invisible.  The first time I ever knew I had found my voice was when my first story about Little One was published.  I sometimes still feel invisible and unheard, but I don’t feel so bad about it.  I have frequently hear that still small voice inside saying  “write, write, write.”  I would say to that voice, with a chuckle “Ok, but it doesn’t pay and I still need to have a way to support myself.”

I started my own blog last September so I would write more.  I am working at it. I enjoy writing, I love meeting new people and getting to know them.  Blogging is a great way to do both. 

I will also finish the second story of Little One.  Occasionally another poem finds its way into my soul and I put pen to paper.

Maybe I will always be an unknown writer, and that is ok.  If most of what I write helps at least a few people, whether to bring a smile to their hearts, encourage or inspire them, or helps them in some way… then it will be worth it.

Do you ever feel invisible? Do you feel that you are seen, heard, and validated?
 “What do you want me to hear?”
