Are you listening?

This post is being written as the words flow from my heart.  As I proceed on this journey life unfolds before me.  I am open to receiving all the messages that come to me through everyday happenings. 

I was with a new friend just recently and decided that I needed a movie to watch for those nights when I just need an escape into another world.  I asked my spirit to lead me to what I should watch.  I don't normally buy movies while traveling but I figured I would send it to someone and pass it along as a gift.  The movie didn't win any awards, it is probably a movie that many never heard of, it is however a movie I was lead to.  I watched that movie tonight and I now know why.  Lately I have had moments where I just don't know if I can do this, it is tough.  I miss my family and to be honest this trip put me totally out of my comfort zone.  The message from this movie, not only are you making a difference, but you need to push on because the road will lead to greater love and joy. 

I am finding that the more I travel this road, the more messages I receive in the most unusual ways.  One day last week I was up until 3 am working on a project and just couldn't seem to get it right.  I decided to take a break and check my email.  The first email I open says, "there comes a time when we are best served to call a project done"... Talk about a wake up call, or in the case of 3am, a good night call. 

Just a short time later I was thinking about someone I was waiting to hear from about something important and as I was preparing to call them, up popped an email.  How can I not listen to what messages are there in everyday happenings.

All too often, we get so caught up in life that we forget to live, to listen.  I believe that this post was meant for someone who is reading it who may be in need of encouragement, hope, or maybe just your own wake up call.  It is so simple to hear your messages, just listen and remember messages may come from anywhere, an email, an unexpected phone call, even a movie that few have heard of. 

Give a smile to a stranger.  Don't wait for people to be kind, show them how.  Do something for someone who can never repay you and even better do so anonymously.  I hope that all of you reading this will take some time today to just breath, to just live, to just listen.
