Marking Time

Time doesn’t stop or give warning. It simply ticks along, marking time, ignoring humanity ~ Amy Harmon

Some people mark time with Tattoos while others mark time with an Anniversary or by collecting Photographs and recording them in albums or picture frames. Life Cycles are another way to mark time. In life, we set out personal guidelines with a mind to succeed, but often we are just setting ourselves up to fail. With Life Cycles it is almost as if we give our power to emotional burdens and past failures, whereas if we choose to live by a set of Virtues, we can take back our power and manage our lives with mindful intention. We can choose to just exist, or we can take responsibility for our lives by consciously creating our life conditions and by growing through our life experiences. We can choose to override past emotionally driven Life Events or Cycles and replace them with consciously driven Life Virtues.

Choose your Virtues and then live them…

I chose Feathers to mark my time. They symbolize honor, strength, and freedom. By adding Virtues; Love (Orange), Balance (Green), Courage (Red), Passion (Purple), Loyalty (Blue), Wisdom (Yellow) with the final, almost ethereal, Feather (Black and White) symbolizing Endings and New Beginnings.  These Feathers, gracing my wall, are there as a reminder of past Life Events and lessons learned. They are also there to inspire me to greater heights as I continue my Life Journey ~ Grady

    Wonderful post, and I love the quote by Johnny Blackbird too! I’ve marked time with many things, crystals, music, poetry, words (stories), birds in flight, photos, and even pains. I collect feathers too, when they are gifted by the Universe. You are right about how we allocate our power and direct our creativity – such a valuable life lesson.

      That was me 🙂 I wanted to keep the blog separate so added a little extra at the bottom. I have made the necessary adjustments as I also needed to make it clear where people could go to see more of Johnny Blackbird’s work. Thank yo so much for taking time to visit my blog! 🙂
