Surrender

Suitcases

If we surrender to the new
What may happen?
We don’t know…

It may not bring us instant joy
Or immediate relief
Because we can’t see the big picture
Or its temporary nature,

It may seem to lead us down a path
Which feels permanent,
Like concrete in our souls,
We may work harder, longer,
We may think we’re broken for a time

And yet, if we choose the path of same
We know what happens there –
More of what we’ve always known

What is the decision?
Do we risk it?
Do we listen,
To the whisper
Of surrender?

Daily Bliss – August 11

The Angels remind us that leadership is not about being “in charge”.  It’s taking charge of ourselves–our emotions, actions, and healing and growth needs–and holding authentic space for others to do the same.  We have opportunties to be an example of this every day, if we’re willing to take the leap.

Daily Bliss – August 9


The Angels remind us to appreciate the gifts we receive, even if they’re wrapped in packages we don’t understand or wouldn’t have chosen.  So many time we throw out something valuable because it doesn’t appear so on the outside.  As Mary Oliver writes, even darkness can be a gift.
