Enjoying Food with Friends is Great Fun!

Picture of Sushi, Carrie and Cheryl whom I had dinner with on the 6th October 2014

It was such fun meeting Carrie and her mom for dinner tonight!

Meeting Facebook friends that you have only talked to online is even more fun! These next few weeks is going to be full of that for me. Some say that we are less connected due to social media – I wrote about that yesterday. I say, however, that considering I met one friend today and will meet at least one more maybe two more before the end of this week, that it is how you choose to use this tool that is the key. You have the option to choose to make the screen your focus and think that the people live inside the screen – this was thought by many in the beginning of television and still you will find young children thinking that. As we mature though we learn that real life is the people around us the people we talk to each and every day!

Don’t get me wrong I totally believe that the friends on Facebook are as REAL as you choose to allow them to be. Once you have been friends for a while if you get a chance and you are passing by their area – send them a PM (private message) and request to meet up for a coffee or a meal! It is FUN! And you learn more about the people and deepen the connection that you already had online!

May your days be filled with positive influences both on and off line and may you this day #ChooseLife when you are talking to people on Facebook and talk to them as if they are REAL friends cause in most cases that is EXACTLY what they want to be!

Have a great day!
Blessings,
Cyndilu

PinExt Using the Screen to Keep In Touch for REAL!

Are You Keeping In Touch with Your Friends for Real

I just watched this and Wow! Even though much of this may be true for many people I think that it can be done differently too! Watch this and then keep an eye on this blog for follow up posts…

Social Media is like any other form of communication it is what you do with it! It is how you use it that makes it a tool that brings you closer or keeps you apart. Are there some times in life that you need to unplug? YES!! Absolutely!

Prince Ea is correct – allowing technology to control you is something that can happen in this world where everything around us is advancing and moving to new technology faster than we change our socks! And just like your socks which you take off at night there are times when you need to PUT IT DOWN! Take off time – stay in touch with your friends and connect in person when you have the chance! I am living full time now in New Zealand after growing up and spending the majority of my 50 years in the USA. So, you can imagine, I have many friends that live in the USA and I use Social Media and the screens in my life to keep in touch and follow what is happening in my friends lives – a LOT!

BUT…

I am right now on a trip in the USA and I have been blessed with the opportunity to drive around this great country and I am going to visit as many of those friends as I can on my journey! And guess what??? SOME of them I met through Facebook or Twitter alone! For real! I have made REAL friends that I have NEVER met in person before but this next 4 weeks I will be meeting them and connecting with them, sharing meals with them and even staying at some of their houses – I will be seeing old friends some of which I would NEVER have kept up with or even knew where they lived without the benefit of the tools that are inside the screens of my life! I am so excited to be sharing this journey with my friends and with you!

Follow me on my journey as I blog and share my time Connecting with Friends, Family and NEW friends too! You have a #Choice how you will live your life, how you will use the tools at your fingertips and how you will share your life with others! I pray and hope that this journey inspires you to put down your electronics when you are with someone and embrace the moment you are in and decide to #ChooseLife!

Blessings!

PinExt Are You In Need of a NEW Day Experience?

{ 0 comments }

Good Morning! Today is a NEW DAY! A Day to BEGIN again!

Are you like me? Do you need a New Day Experience? A day to see a the road in a new way to know that no matter what happened yesterday its ok because that is over. It is past, gone by, not coming back again! We have shifted from living in the memories of yesterday to living in this present moment of today! Right now! This very moment, this very second even!

What does it mean to have a new day really? Let’s look at the pure physical aspects of a New Day.

The Sun rises again…

The Night is over and gone and the darkness gives way to the light of the new day dawning.

There is a new song in the air as the birds come to life after their night season.

I encourage you now to seek out the light in your life! Realize that the night only lasts for a short season and open your heart, mind and body to release the song that is within you!

In the light of the new day we find our peace and a renewed sense of joy!

Enjoy this: YOUR NEW DAY!

#ChooseLife
Blessings,
Cyndilu

FromthePittothePalace

These are thoughts and reflections – so punctuation was not my focus. Grace requested as you read please…

I am more and more realizing that we really only have control over our attitudes – how we think about things – what we focus on… but sometimes it does not ‘feel’ like we have control over anything… at least this is the way I feel… I know it may be different for you… so I speak only for me own self here.

Waves of emotion can make me feel out of control.

When the floods of emotions come I feel out of control… lost and floating in my own pain and frustration… like I have been robbed of my ability to even function… and while that may be true it is only when I go to the truth and speak that over my life that I find myself being pulled up out of the pit of despair… I used to live there daily – I am beginning to realize that is why it hurts me so when I see others going through it… I have been in that pit… and IT SUCKS!!!!! so much!!! so much pain!!! so much darkness!!! So much hurt!!! so much hopelessness!!! Not feeling like there is a way out! – Then I like Joseph get out of the pit —- and for what??? to be sold into SLAVERY! Wow!!! Now that is certainly a different season but its not the one I would have wanted…. oh my goodness! NO – not at all… definitely another season of feeling out of control, held down, shackled and unable to move, lorded over, and so much more!!! Wow! Then into a great season – feeling like I am there – I have arrived I am working in a great house and serving a wonderful master and feeling like life is finally getting better…

Just when I think life is sorted and I am doing ok.

BOOM/BAM – accused wrongly or mistreated, whether that is from sexual abuse or giving myself over cause I don’t really down deep feel worthy or who knows what!! Anyway, here I am thinking this season will last forever, on top of the mountain and BAM!!! Down again and into prison this time… Surrounded by bars, boxed in, unable to freely walk and go where I want, at the mercy of others for the needs of my life. Guarded with every move being watched – feeling like I will never get out of this, that I am forever going to be locked away and my true talents being wasted…

I keep on being me…

I keep on being me within the prison walls, giving of myself, my gifts and my love to all that I meet and see each day. Those who receive from me act and say that they respect me, and are grateful for my gifts to help them… the one thing that I ask for them to do it to remember me and share with others my goodness to them – remember what I did for them and share what I can do for others… When they get out of prison – do they remember? do they help to get me out of the prison I am in? NO! They go about their lives free as can be for years!!! So here I am, still in jail and thinking I will be there forever, I mean after all I have been here for a long time now – for years!!!

Just when you think you are stuck forever…

I am thinking today is just like any other day – but the TRUTH is — I have a FRIEND and HE does stick CLOSER than a BROTHER and HE is/was with me in the PIT, and HE is/was with me in the SLAVERY, and HE is/was with me in the Early Seasons of Small Victories, and HE is/was with me in the PRISON, and HE is/with me in my dreams! HE has NOT let go of them or of WHO HE created ME to BE!!! HE is WORKING on my behalf – reminding those that have experienced my gifts before that I am here… and ONE DAY I will be in PRISON and the NEXT DAY I will be FREE! Moved into place where not only will NO DOOR be SHUT for me, I will also BE the GIFT that will GIVE others LIFE!!!

ALL that I have lived through is for a PURPOSE!

ALL the PAIN will be worth it in the end… others will be SAVED because I am willing to keep going, to keep on SHARING the DREAMS that no matter where I am keep coming to me! Today may not be your last day of the season you are in BUT it also may be, so don’t give up for THIS may be the DAY that GOD DELIVERS you from your enemies (and that can include the enemies that live in your own head…) KNOW this there WILL be a DAY that YOU are WALKING out through those PRISON doors for the very last time!!! AND THIS may be THAT DAY when your dreams do come true!
