Rick's Reflections Blog

Have you ever stopped to think about how much you have achieved.
I say stopped to think, because that is what we have to do.
We can get so caught up in the day to day.
We forget to appreciate everything that we have done.

We get so busy, not just doing the task at hand.
But trying to figure out all the things that we still need to do.
Just being alive means that there will always be more to do.
We are a biologically functioning machine that needs constant maintenance.

The more "civilized" we are, the more maintenance we need.
We have a lot stuff, needs and desires.
The more we want, and get, the greater the list of to do's.
The greater the amount of thought we have about these things.

Desire for more comes from thoughts of fear and insecurity.
Thinking that we need more to prove that we are worthy.
We strive to prove how successful we are.
We worry that we are not going to have enough tomorrow.

The fact is you are already a success.
It doesn't matter what you own, your job, your money, whatever...
You made it here through an obstacle course of challenge.
Each time you made it to the next moment and you are here.

If you stop and look at what you have achieved...
There will be people that you loved and that loved you.
Not all are still there because you both had growing to do.
You had a path to walk together for awhile, learn and move on.

When your thoughts come of perceived failures.
See those insecure thoughts for what they are.
Just thoughts... you made up in your mind.
Not real... you created them and you can let them go.

When you have thoughts about needing more.
Realize all that you have and what it took to get here.
Appreciate all that you have and all that you have done.
And let those made up insecure thoughts pass on through.

You're are a winner and always have been.
Every day you got through the day.
Some days may have been really tough.
But no matter the challenge you made it.

Most days you remember to stop and smile.
Because you know that it's a wonderful world.
Because you know that you have everything you need.
It is all inside of you.

You are a Winner.
Eternal Peace.
Infinite Love.

Live in Love and Peace,
