Wings like Eagles

I had a really long night. Lately, I have been coming up against a brick wall in many incarnations again and again. I have written about this for a while. If I go right, the wall comes up left. I have done my best to flow, get around, chip away at the wall. This morning after sitting down next to my altar and doing my tarot and oracle card for the day, there is only one solution left. I need to let go.

Now, if this was a miniseries, a friend would call saying that their chateau in the countryside of France needs housesitting until the year's end. I go there. Get inspired and fall in love with the only handsome French brotha in town. He fall madly in love with me ...okay, I'm losing focus here. Let me get to my current reality.

The point is sometimes you have to walk away. I decided to take a hiatus from acting for a month. Maybe even till Thanksgiving. I'm letting go of all the things, people and situations that are stagnating for me. Laying down my burdens.

My beliefs in God are not traditional at all. I feel our Cosmic Birther of the Universe speaks to us in different ways. I do my best to listen. I have one piece of scripture that I really feel. This is from the book of Isaiah.

"But they who wait for The Lord
shall renew their strength
they shall mount up with wings like eagles
they shall run and not be weary
they shall walk and not faint"

I'm letting go and renewing my strength. There has to be a balance in all things. I do my best to look on the sunny side of life. Maintaining a positive and focused life requires energy and strength. The truth it's so easy to go negative and apathetic. I need to rest and replenish.

Despite my personal drama,it's still Friday!! I have a fun video to show. This is from one of my new favorite movies: Marie Antionette. The movie got slammed by critics and audiences stayed away. I love the way Sofia Coppola, the director,gives the movie a documentary feel to it. The first hour is slow, once you get past that the movie comes into it's own.

The song says it all. Have a wonderful Friday everyone.

Good luck. I wish you the best. Sometimes we have to take a sabbatical from something. Step back and reevaluate the situation. I'm sure God, the Universe, whatever you wanna call it, will guide you in the right direction. I know that I many times right now feel like I'm at a crossroads. I don't know which direction to turn. This has been one of the worst years in my life. We have to figure out where our place in the world truly is. What we are meant to be doing with our lives. Take care. Have a great weekend.

P.S. I've never seen that movie. I guess I've been wary of it since I've heard so many negative reaction. I might have to give it a shot at some point.

I love the way you write and think. I really think it is very healthy. Your life is trying to tell you something. Sometimes, you have to stop and listen in order to reassess. I hope you find what your life is looking for:-)

you will be ok and keep listening to what your surroundings, signs and dreams are trying to tell you, specifically your intuition.
Stay always in tune with yourself, you are doing good mermaid Shell
