The third bud on my orchid has finally opened after so many ears of dormancy. Perhaps it was the change of location that has inspired Her to finally blossom, being now in the morning light or perhaps I have become worthy of Her beauty.
I also found a poem written by Nancye Sims which I had saved, titled “A Creed To Live By”.
I never knew the name of the poem and so I had to look it up. When I read it again I felt as though the synchronicity of the orchid and the message were linked within my Heart.
Since I tend to live what I call a Synchronous Journey, these two moments could not be a coincidence.
So I send them out to the world as a declaration of how each of us are always passing through phases of our lives which appear fruitless.
Yet they are not to be dismissed or cast away, for when we are ready to blossom once again…
We will be Glorious…
A CREED TO LIVE BY
written by Nancye Sims)
Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.
Don’t take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.
Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or the future.
By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Don’t give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.
Don’t be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Don’t shut love out of your live by saying it’s impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly;
and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Don’t dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope;
to be without hope is to be without purpose.
Don’t run through life so fast that you forget
not only where you’ve been, but also where you’re going.
Life is not a race,
but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
