Inspirations from the Heart

Updated on December 2, 2014

A Detour On My Path

Why is it so difficult to receive? It is easy to give but to receive seems to feel awkward and uninvited. Could it be the idea that we want to have the control and say so of what we have and what we get? Could it be that we are to proud to accept a hand or help from another.

Last year God took me on a detour.

My adventure and experience of breaking my leg had been an extremely challenging time for me. As my life had always been busy and always on the go. I felt subjected to be still. It is as if God had said to me that I must stop everything. I must stop and reflect on my life. Reflect on where I have been, and reflect on where I am presently. The purpose of this is to see exactly where I am going with clearity.

This makes sense to me as I reflected on how diffiicult it had been for me to stop doing and just be in the being. Muhammed Ali once said that "God gave me this illness to remind me that I am not number one; he is"

No, I am not ill, yet I had experienced being stranded by a broken leg. As I took the time to heal, I reminded myself that I had a choice. As the mind is the most powerful and sometimes the most dangerous tool to possess, I have a choice in what to feed my mind with as I had been recovering. And I chose to feed my mind with inspiration. I choose to have loving family and friends surround me, as this brought joy to my hear and soul and speeds up my recovery and healing rate.

I sat back and evaluated my life as if it were a mosaic puzzle of sorts. Am I broken? Shattered? Misunderstood? Misguided? Possibly we are all broken, shattered, misunderstood and misguided. However, it is with each of us to feel secure and happy within ourselves. It is not what pleases the masses, yet it is what pleases our soul our God that we believe in. I invite you to take advantage of this time that you too may be feeling broken. Don't feel sorry for yourself. Look around your environment and see how many wonderful people are in your life to lift up your spirits. I invite you to take this time and ask for help, as well as accept the help that is offered to you. When we are broken, it is a good reminder to say that you are not meant for this life journey alone. Reach out and accept help. Because when you do, you are not only receiving, but you are giving another human being the chance to give to you.

      It is amazing how many would view breaking a leg as an inconvenience, rather than an opportunity. Natures way is truly marvellous.

      Look forward to more of your hubs. I love your inspiring voice.
