A to Z Challenge 2015 - Theme Reveal

A to Z 2015

The A to Z challenge is held in April each year and is the brain child of Arlee Bird   This is my third year of participating in the A to Z challenge. I look forward to it each year.

The first year I had no theme and randomly wrote posts. That was quite difficult to do so last year I went with a theme. I not only found that easier but more enjoyable.  So I decided to go with a theme this year too.

But themes are not easy to think up for me and this year and this challenge is no different.  So eventually I meditated to seek some answers. And the answers always come.

Then of course having got the answer, my mind went into some moments of doubt - really, is this what I need to write about?  But when the answers come from above, one must take heed and go with that.

So here it is, my theme this year, in the words that were given to me

A bit of poetry, a bit of prose

An epic event as seen by my soul

What could it be you all may ponder

"Love is in the air" here and yonder

Easy peasy?  Oh gosh no. Now I have to write that prose and poetry - more meditation and hopefully some dictation from yonder.

Looking forward to this challenge and reading your posts.  Looking forward to also discover some new blogs and bloggers.

Me Time

There are all kinds of days occurring - Compassion Day, Women's Day, Compliments Day and now to add to that list March 16 was #MeDay, a day for just me to spend as I want by myself.

Now if March 15 had Me Day and if I would've written my post then, I would have ended up with a completely different post full of me.

But yesterday was a sad day. My dear aunt passed away after suffering Alzheimer's for about 7 years.  Me day takes on a different meaning and losing someone so dear to us highlights that it is people who make my life worthwhile and happy,

So while I enjoy time meditating, blogging, doing the things I like doing, I think for me the best moments of my time are also spent with people around me. Does that sound strange?  It isn't for me.  I like to have my family around me. They don't disturb me when I'm doing my things, but having them around makes me feel good.

I don't crave for a Me day or Me time.  I like having my people around me.

And if I really really want some time to myself, my ipod and the music can take me into a different world.   But I don't need to shut myself away, I can do that even with my people around me.

So how would you describe your Me time?

In the Shadows of Silence there is a Plan

image source: google images

In the shadows of silence I sat and pondered. I always thought that plans were my strength. I was good at making them and I had the determination to pursue them. I could plan at work and steer my team to achieve and I had lofty personal dreams.

I had scribbled many notes on pieces of paper. Each month shaped and described. But as the years went by and plans fell to pieces, disappointment took a hold and the dreams started to fade.

Then from the shadows the silent Universe whispered, "The Divine plans and you must go with that plan". Of course I ignored those wise words and persisted in following my plans. After all I knew better than the Universe didn't I?  But the Universe whispered again and again, "Go then with your plan, but be prepared for the U turn". And many a U turn I did make.

I guess at some moment in time a thought took over, perhaps I grew wiser, perhaps the Universe persisted from the silent shadows until I was compelled to listen and follow. And so I threw away the oars, crumpled up my papers, and followed the plan the Divine set out for me.

And now I sit and ponder in the shadows of silence that life is indeed more peaceful and enjoyable and meaningful because the Divine plans for me and I go with that plan.
