The Open Heart Attracts Miracles – Five Minute Friday

Open Heart Affirmation by Rebekah

I’m linking up with the Five Minute Friday Community today to write on the word of the week as usual.   Because I am working on my poetry books, I won’t be writing today’s post in poetry form (but I did read a poem by Walt Whitman in today’s Poetic Friday Podcast).   Today I’m free flow writing unfiltered and straight from the heart.  The word is OPEN.  When I hear that word, the next word I think of is heart.  I think of both the difficulties we face when having open hearts, and the miracles.  The miracles always trump the difficulties.  I thought I’d write on how the open heart attracts miracles today!         Years ago I probably would have said that the open heart attracts drama … Continue Reading

Loving YOU: Are You as Good to Yourself as You are to Others?

Love Yourself

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I want to talk about self love today because Valentine’s Day is not just for couples in my book.  We often do so much for others and we treat others with love and kindness, but how are you at loving YOU?  I’m hoping that you take time out to love on yourself and treat yourself as good as you treat those around you.  This is really important as this self love thing trickles down to every aspect of our lives-including our relationships with others.  It affects our self worth, our own personal happiness and our ability to live inspired!  It is also part of a healthy self care practice.  Today I want to tell you how wonderful YOU are and encourage you to love on yourself this … Continue Reading

Letters from Rebekah-It’s Been a Rough Couple Weeks!

” And hard times are good in their own way too.  Because the only way you can achieve true happiness is if you experience true sadness as well.  It’s all about light and shade.  Balance. “ – Gabrielle Williams       I have found this to be so true in my life, and for that reason I wouldn’t completely eradicate the dark times.  While I live inspired and write inspiring things for my readers (and for my own healing for that matter!), it is important for me to also share the hard times with you.  I want you to know that my living inspired is a choice.  It’s grown out of a 15 year journey of personal trials and self discovery, which has ultimately led to finding myself again. … Continue Reading

On Releasing Old Stories and Emotions

inspiring quotes

This weeks Five Minute Friday word is RELEASE.  I make it my personal goal to bring you poetry in five each week, but today’s word just has me wanting to write it all out.  I want to talk about releasing old stories and emotions.  The topic of release is something I have been talking quite a lot about with a few dear, close friends.  So many of my friends and I are releasing things lately.  Releasing pain, releasing people who have disappointed us, releasing past patterns that run deep, releasing expectations even.  I am fortunate to have met such a wonderful group of people who have bright spirits and want to be transformers!     We speak of transformation quite a lot these days, and even in the mentoring I … Continue Reading

Introducing Warm Words of Wisdom (from my heart to yours)

Quotes by We Live Inspired

Today I am bringing you something new!  If you aren’t yet part of the We Live Inspired Facebook community, you haven’t seen a new feature I started recently called “Warm Words of Wisdom (from my ♥ to yours)” ©.  It’s where I share wisdom that I have either learned from my own experiences or that is inspired at that moment by the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart.  Ironically, an author I really enjoy (Holley Gerth) has started something called “Coffee for your Heart Wednesday” in which we bloggers are to write an encouraging post for our readers.  Since encouragement is what I do here anyway, and I just happened to start that new feature on Facebook-I thought this was perfect!  I hope you will enjoy this new feature :D. The words … Continue Reading

When You’re Feeling Unsure- Inspiration on Conquering the Unknown

Today’s topic of inspiration ended up being about the unknown, which you will find ironic when you start reading today’s post as I had NO CLUE what to even write about today. Today you will find out that the unknown can in fact be inspiring and awesome and that it’s ok if you are feeling unsure of yourself.  So on to today’s post then..you know you wanna read more!  ;)     It’s been awhile since I have written here, which is ironic since today’s Five Minute Friday word is WRITE.  Linking up at Lisa Jo Baker’s website as usual for the 5 minute exercise that frees us to not over think things, but to just get the words out on paper for 5 minutes.  I have no clue what … Continue Reading

Angels Among Us-On Being an Angel to Your Fellow Man

With the holiday Season upon us, our hearts are often filled with love and goodwill towards our fellow man.  To me, Living Inspired means Living this way year round.  Even in my own toughest times in life, reaching out to help others made a profound impact (lifting my own spirits as well).  When we are putting an energy of love out there, we are in turn going to attract love and kindness unto ourselves. This is where true miracles happen!  Today’s inspiration is a true story that happened to me (and my family) a month ago.  It is a story of goodwill, kindness, love, and strangers. **Make sure to watch the YouTube video at the end of this, as it goes with my story and I think it will touch … Continue Reading

The Pearable-What a Bucket of Fruit Taught Me About Life Part 2

071

Today I am bringing you the continuation of a true story I call, “The Pearable-Or What a Bucket of Fruit Taught Me About Life”.  If you have missed the first part of the story, part 2 may not make as much sense.  You can click HERE to read part 1.   Arm in Arm we set out at dusk (Matt & I) that crisp October eve, with the exuberance of children going door to door at Halloween asking for candy.  Only we weren’t the ones receiving.  We were the literal bearers of fruit…a bucket of fruit, that is.   It was like a grown up version of trick or treating-this random act of kindness we were about to do.   We knocked on various doors with our bucket of freshly … Continue Reading

The Wings of Belief-A Whimsical Poem & a Childhood Story

Shoot For the Moon weliveinspired.com

It’s time for my poetry in five with the Five Minute Friday community!  I am a day behind, as I have company here at the cottage and am super busy.  This week’s magic word is “FLY”.  I have a little childhood story on “flying” to share with you, followed by the whimsical poem I wrote!  Won’t you lighten your spirit and indulge in a little childlike glee with me today?  (there is a message in this poem for our adult selves too )         When I was a child I used to almost believe I could fly.  Did you ever feel that way when you were small?  Children are so amazing in their ability to BELIEVE in possibility.  That is what made childhood so fun!  It was like living … Continue Reading

The Pearable-or What a Bucket of Fruit Taught Me About Life

bucket of pears

Who knew that my latest inspiration would come from a bucket of fruit?  (This is what I am talking about when I say “living inspired” guys..there is SO much inspiration around us.)  Seemingly mundane, everyday life can provide Life Lessons. Wisdom. Truth.  AND a sense of Fun.  We just have to Open our eyes, our hearts, and Awaken our senses.  There is a story to tell in every day life.  YOU have a story.  I have a story.  And-today a piece of fruit has a story.   I call this story “The Pearable.”  (a special thanks to a woman in my writing class named Violet Harlow for thinking of this brilliant pun when I was recalling this story to her as a regular parable).       If you read my last post … Continue Reading
