WearBU Blogs: Embracing Jewish Peoplehood, Identity & Community
Like most women, I have a love-hate relationship with fashion and more style faux-pas in my repertoire than I care to mention. But, for the sake of nostalgia, I’ll share a few of them with you today in hopes that they’ll inspire you to laugh at your own fashion fails. Because let’s face it - who doesn’t have them?
As a small girl, all I wanted to wear was pink clothes with glitter and sequins like the dresses I saw on my favorite Disney princesses. I was convinced that pink was going to be my favorite color for life but little did I know that I’d soon meet a friend who’d manage to completely change my mind on the matter.
A miracle is simply a shift in perception from thoughts of fear to thoughts of love. Many of us lost track of this simplicity because we fell for fear instead. When our thoughts are focused on fear we block miracles. Fear becomes the norm and we deny the potential for peace and love. Even in the darkest situations I ask for a miracle and I’m relieved of my fear, only to return to love.Believing in miracles requires faith. If we don’t believe in miracles we won’t experience them. When our focus is on lack, fear, anger and attack then lack, fear, anger and attack will be our life’s experience. But when our focus shifts to peace a miracle can occur. Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The moment we shift our perception from fear to love we experience a miracle. It’s as simple as that.
