Be Patient . . .


Happy Hump Day, y’all!

Here we go again … it’s the middle of another week in our lives!  Cool, right?!  Are you cool?  Are you patient?

So, here’s an opportunity to take a look at “ourselves”.  We always tend to look at other people for “what to do …” or “how to act …” or “which clothes to buy …”.  Why?  Don’t we trust ourselves to make good decisions for … yes … OURSELVES?!?  If one can’t make a good decision for oneself, then who can “one” make a good decision for?  Hmmmm ….

At this time, if you would like NOT to receive any more e-mails from me and Educational Excellence, send me a note saying simply, “STOP”!  I will get the message.  Some of the themes I touch on may not be good for who “you” are.  I am cool with that, too.  This sole proprietorship non-profit business called Educational Excellence seeks to help people “refocus” on themselves.  This is something rather common here in Puerto Viejo amongst the “healing” community.  Even “here”, one has to be careful of what one is doing … especially if you are just following what someone “else” told you to do.  Each of us is different in many ways, yet similar in more ways than we are often willing to admit.  Learn about YOURSELF …. what keeps you calm … what annoys you …. and what YOU need to work on for … yep … YOURSELF!  Then … I said, THEN … we can come together and share our “learned experiences” or lessons with the world community and see how it “works”.  Trust yourself and learn to trust each other … and to be trusted!

I chose this theme this morning because apparently, I am in a bit of a rush to get my papers filed for residency here.  I have until the 25th of this month to file them.  I am still awaiting the arrival of the birth certificate with the “apostille” from the Secretary of New York State on it.  Learning to be patient at times like this is important.  Sometimes, “your” or in this case “my” impatience may manifest itself in other areas like with new friendships made … even a new job assignment or just waiting for something to arrive in the mail or to happen in your life … like I am!  I mean, either way, it is not the end of the world for you, you dig?!!  “Everything happens for a reason.”  Learn more about “oneself” by coming into contact with other “like-minded” people who seek peace and harmony, truth, justice and all those other things that help us get along together on this planet!  “We’ve only got one!”

Alrighty then, I am going to close this correspondence by asking y’all to prepare to wish your “Mothers” … both here and the hereafter … a Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday!
