Getting Started: Write It Down (part 2 of 3)

“The unexamined life isn’t worth living.” -Plato In yesterday’s post I wrote about the first step I took to bring about positive and lasting change into my life, spending time alone. There were three important steps I took that I believe were instrumental in bringing about REAL change into my “stagnant pond” of a life.  The 3 pebbles I tossed into my stagnant pondContinue Reading

’tis the season

This time of year, it’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness, to keep rushing, to think that hectic and frantic are the signs of the season. Maybe it’s no surprise that colds and flus seem to be a part of the mix–it’s one way to “force” yourself to slow down a littleContinue Reading

Can you give yourself permission to be beautiful?

Have you seen this post? I’ve started telling my daughters I’m beautiful, by Amanda King. That link will open it in a new tab for you, but here’s the gist: “I don’t want my girls to be children who are perfect and then, when they start to feel like women, they remember how I thought ofContinue Reading

…so what are YOU waiting for?

Life is full to the brim of waiting.  We all have to wait for things, usually on a daily basis. We wait: when calling a business to get to the point in the queue to be able to speak to a “real” person at the grocery check-out in heavy traffic in security check points atContinue Reading

    Having portable craft projects in small, easy to grab and go bags, and keeping some e-books on my PDA are two ways that I deal with waiting. Also wearing headphones for those long phone calls gives me free hands to do things, like organizing and decluttering.

    I’m doing the same thing about deciding now what items are worth moving when DH retires, sometime in the next 2-4 years, so that when the time comes I’m ready to pack and go. Makes not living in a part of the country where I wish to be easier.

    And each little step feels good and makes the next one easier to take.

Reboot-Returning to My Natural Settings

October Reboot  I’ve been gone for 2 of the 3 weeks we’ve had in October.  Much of it was unplanned, unexpected. Three people have commented to me on how “good” I look since I’ve gotten back. I think it’s because of all the things I did while I was away that I don’t normally do.Continue Reading

  1. Those pictures are lovely. I’m so glad you had a chance to travel and reboot. I spent 12 days in Alabama and the weather was lovely, there were real trees (although not quite as colorful as what you posted here) and I had wonderful visits with family. The legal stuff I had to handle (the reason for the visit) didn’t go so well, but I didn’t expect it to anyway. And there will be more to come, but at least it will give me more trips to visit grandbabies!

Creating Abundance in a World of Deprivation

  a·bun·dance/əˈbəndəns/ Noun: A very large quantity of something. The quantity or amount of something, e.g., a chemical element or an animal or plant species, present in a particular area, volume,… Abundance is a huge buzz-word in the self-help world.

  1. I haven’t felt the cloud of scarcity for MONTHS but I remember that feeling all too well. I keep it away with chocolate every day. LOLZ… just kidding (kind of. not really.)! I read & write & make lists and then shred the lists. These are the things I love best, on a daily basis, besides spending time with my hubz & kids. Also? Doctor Who. (someone had to say it!)
