Survivor or Just Surviving?

survivor

As humans, we all have that innate instinct to survive. There is a difference, however, to being a survivor or just surviving…or barely surviving as I hear so many say. 

When we hit bottom, or even just a low point, the survivor instinct will kick in but what you do with that is a choice. The survivor will choose to not only fight but also to see it as a lesson to learn, a way to grow, a challenge, an opportunity for better and they will smile through it. They will have gratitude for what good is still around them and they will find that good as scarce as it may be! They will also know without a shadow of a doubt that this is only temporary.

Those that choose to just survive are the ones that scrape by…barely…and see each day as a burden and they are miserable and stay in the mindset that nothing will change and they are doomed to struggle over and over. They tell themselves constantly “I can’t do this anymore, I can’t make it, I’ll never survive this” and yet they do and nothing changes. They usually fail to see the blessings that are still there around them. 

So you have a choice to be a survivor or to just survive. If just surviving works for you then stick with it….if not then it’s never too late to start becoming a survivor! Life has many battles….learn & grow or be stagnant….

I am a survivor, I am a warrior

Facing the Fear of Truth in Reflections

kat says

reflection

Ok…I don’t usually put up wordy posts but every once and awhile a thought or “ah ha” moment strikes me and I think…..there must be others going through or thinking about the same thing and I need to share. So heres my latest thought process/ramble 🙂 So many times I see or hear the referance to how when we see things in other people that anger or bother us, that we are actually seeing a mirror….a reflection of those issues with-in ourselves. That has made me really think and question that. I have had things bother me in others that I honestly don’t see as a trait in myself….yet I knew there was some truth to this all. What was I missing? What I was not seeing clearly? Then I took an example and examined it. It seemed that recently I being presented with people that constantly judged others in…

Reiki & Stress

kat says

Reiki has been getting more attention in the mainstream lately…yay! We see many hospitals utilizing it in surgery & cancer wards now. I’m thrilled to see it getting recognized more & more for the benefits it can provide. I do feel though, that it’s being overlooked and forgotten for one on the biggest issues that many, if not all, of us deal with. STRESS! Everyday and in many ways stress shows its ugly face. Work, bills, family, friends and so many other things contribute to it. Most of us also know that continued stress leads to so many more issues….minor & major. We think to treat other health issues….many of us even seek out Reiki when dealing with these issues. But how about the stress everyday? If more corporations and businesses would offer even mini Reiki sessions to it’s employees, we would see an decrease in stress & in…

What is Enough?

wish for you

I always wish everybody enough and just a little bit more….but who determines what is enough? What is enough for one is either not enough or too much for another. And some people never have enough. So who decides? Society? Government? Financial institutions? No…..YOU do ❤ What is enough for you today? Just today…tomorrow you can ask the same question.

Much love,

~Kat~

It starts with you!

Ask yourself a question and answer yourself honestly…..”Am I compassionate with myself?” It starts with you…if you wish to be compassionate with others then you must fill your own cup first! You cannot pour from an empty cup!
