SPARKS on Monday

Here we go – starting another week in our lives……………and what better way to do that than with a bit of inspiration?    SPARKS Blog Hop is the idea of Annie at McGuffy’s Reader – we gather together to share some LIGHT to start our week.    A bit of inspiration that may not just speak to our inner core but radiate OUT into the world which sometimes seems like a place WITHOUT inspiration.     Thanks Annie for giving us a place to share our thoughts.    Would you like to join us?    Good!   Just click on the graphic above and fill in the LINKY form and share!

I think my SPARK this week is perhaps a rather simple thought – and it’s an EASY one to say but not so easy to LIVE IT sometimes.    I am not by nature a worrier but my husband is.    He worries about everything and that’s how he has always been.   I believe things happen for a reason and that there’s no sense in worrying about anything – it just IS and we learn from the bad and good in our lives.    I have concern FOR others who worry……..but not for myself.    I will keep both feet in the light for as long as I’m here and be AT PEACE.

 

I hope you have a Worry-free week……………….just remember you have the power to focus wherever you want to!

Love, Pam

  1. That is a great spark. I must remember that as I am worrying about the broken generator and the storm arriving tonight -ugh! XO

  2. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY WORD WHAT A WONDERFUL WONDERFUL QUOTE Mom says it applies to me. BRAVO BRAVO Mom says when I finish eating my meals, she is pretty sure I worry about the next one when I should be savoring the stinky goodness in my mouth.

    • Your Mom is right dear Madi…..if ever there was a girlcat who did NOT need to worry about getting food or meds or treatments or being well taken care of PERIOD – it’s YOU dear Lady In Red. You have the best humans EVER – they are taking the best care of you and making sure you never have to worry about anything. Just RELAX………Your Mom has “got your back” (and your front too!).

      Love, Teddy

    • It does that to almost everyone……..for some reason now that I’m retired DST is just a pain from the “changing all the clocks” point of view. No more panic when I realize I should have been at work an hour earlier (or later!).

  3. Your Spark and the one I shared are on the same wavelength! It is hard at times not to worry about real life issues, but we can let worry consume us and we become unable to function because of it. Like you, I believe that life goes along as it should, and we learn by navigating those bumps in the road. I am not going to spend my days living in fear, especially about things I have no control over. I’m going to live in the moment today, and realize how many ways my life is blessed! ❤

  4. Teddy, your Dad and our Dad are both the same. Ours gets all panicky when something goes wrong, and Mom tries to tell him to remain calm and it will all work out. Moms are smart, aren’t they?

  5. My human has never seen the sense of worrying. Her parents were big worriers – they seemed to pride themselves on it! – and my human always said, “Great, go ahead and worry. That way I won’t have to!”

  6. Well, Pam you know how I feel about your Spark today. I think I will copy and paste the paragraph above your Spark AND the Spark quote and I will read it every dang day! Geez, I am teary again for another time today reading that last sentence. Worrying sucks the very life out of you!

  7. Oh, you speak the truth here, as always. I am not one to worry. It is too much wasted-energy. I would rather focus on some positive actions, be it prayer or good deeds for others. Good Karma. Hugs.

  8. This is a terrific Spark and so true. Our mom used to worry about anything and everything all the time, making herself crazy. Then both her aunt and sister asked her if she was accomplishing anything by worrying and if it changed the outcome of anything. When she realized that it didn’t, she was able to quit worrying (at least most the time). It definitely is detrimental to a happy and peaceful life.

    • It is and it is ADDICTIVE too……one worry leads to another and so on AND you can’t stop……My Dad is the worrier my Mom is the one who “gets it” that worrying doesn’t change a thing. Somewhere in between is something sensible. LOL

      Hugs, Teddy

  9. Most wonderful Spark! Mom has been worrying so much about work. She has been consumed and fretful. Purrhaps she will take this to heart. I know she has written it on a sticky note and stuck it to her Monitor!

  10. That is so very true. But it sure is hard not to fall into that trap, isn’t it? My One Word for 2018 is Shalom, so I’m trying very hard to preserve that inner peace in the face of an uncertain future. Thanks for the reminder!

    • Worry is addictive. It’s hard to break it like most habits are but if you just keep telling yourself that worrying isn’t going to change a thing – then it makes worry seem like a big waste of time. Here’s to inner peace!

      Hugs, Pam
