Walking and Sitting

April 12 2018:

It’s been an afternoon of phone calls … Ingram Books, Createspace, and scheduling appointments for Lillian. Thankfully I went for a walk this morning and sat for a bit by the water. Ahhhhhh ….. (photo of where I sat)

Nearing completion of changes that need to be made so Lillian can have a book signing at the Reno Barnes & Noble and they can have them for sale there too! One form to fill out and email and then we wait for the change to process.

YAY for progress!!! xoxo

Am I alone in NOT liking to use the phone? Not sure what it is, yet, I will try all other non-phone communication methods before using the phone!

High Energy and Low Energy and Wild and Crazy Wind

January 14 2018:

Solo walk yesterday. It was a high energy day yesterday. Complete opposite today. Feel like I was up all night doing strenuous work. And I slept hard all night. HA! This interesting and magical thing called life …. I will have to request the night off tonight from whatever I was working on in my sleep!!

Solo walk this afternoon. Wild and crazy wind kicking up itty bitty white caps in this tiny lake. (Pictures a tad blurry as I couldn’t hold my arms still from the wind blowing so hard!!) This walk felt so incredibly good. Gratitude and love overflowed and blew away in the winds. Amazing!! The wind was Wild!! Suited me and my inner Wild Woman! xoxoxoxo

One Breath at a Time by Camilla Downs

One Breath at a Time

One breath at a time, dear one

You find yourself in a vast ocean of your own creation.
An ocean full of the humanness of life.

Joy, love, peace,
laughter, happiness, abundance,
beauty, compassion, kindness.
Fear, sadness, greed,
competition, judgements, shame,
guilt, jealousy, loneliness.

At times you feel as if you
are on the verge of drowning.

One’s arms and legs have become
heavy with the struggle of this
ocean swirling with humanness.

What is one to do?
There is no ….

Relaxing and Peaceful

November 26 2017:

I hadn’t planned on a solo walk this morning, yet, the lake was calling. Had it all to myself and sat for a while on a huge, perfectly fitted rock with this view.

Listening to the gentle sounds of the water lapping and feeling the wind blowing was incredibly relaxing and peaceful as I handed over concerns to Mother Nature. Felt like I could have stayed in that spot all day. So blessed I listened to the call. xoxo

Time to Nourish the Soul


November 6 2012:

Time to nourish the soul ….

As the butterfly swoops by, as the last remaining leaves rustle, as the sounds drift by, as the sun shares it’s warmth with me, as the soft breeze cools my face…

Pondering, accepting, releasing …. Soaking it in ….

As we choose to believe we must always be “doing” so hard and “doing” so much and choose to believe in lack and that we need something or someone to make us happy, the belief and obsession to have more and more ….

All we need do is return to nature so as to feel and see and know the abundance that surrounds us …. The abundance that is ours once we choose to live a true and authentic life.

Peace is ours once we discontinue to identify with what we have and what we accomplish. The search for this peace is a worthwhile quest. Knowing that we are valuable just because we ARE and not believing that we are valuable only when we have accomplished something … This is a concept that brings instant peace when we truly grasp it and live our life knowing this.

Add the ingredient of resilience …

Add the fortitude to stay true to this thought pattern when old negative thoughts and thought patterns rear their ugly head …. AND

Joy, Happiness, Contentment and Peace is YOURS.
