To sit in peaceful contemplation
And feel our heart beat
Brings peace and calming sensations
Each day our feet must wander
Our course set for stars above
For our journeys’ long and arduous
The world lies ahead of me
Just like the moon above

Introspection is a great way to account to oneself FOR oneself…and it does put things into perspective.

It always makes me happy when my posts bring more insight into
how we look at ourselves.

The beach is the best place to NURTURE YOURSELF !!!
The peaceful calm surroundings coupled with the swoosh of the waves against the shore is tranquilizing.
Secret medicine for the body, mind and soul.

I could feel myself there in that picture–maybe with you waiting to watch the moon’s journey… Thanks–it’s just what I needed! Sorry I can’t catch up on all of your posts–I’m just trying to make an effort to let you know I’m still alive, kicking, and thinking of you!

Fear not … I am always grateful when you drop by and comment. It can be difficult to keep up. It is my greatest stressor about blogging. I want to go to all of the ones I enjoy and love reading. I’m trying to keep it in prospective – like there is only so much time in a day or life has other wants from us.
No worries … live, laugh and be healthy. xoxo

This goes with the idea of the Awesomeness Jar (gratitude) I posted last January. It is important to be mindful and grateful as a journey progresses toward peace and contentment. Thank you for linking, Izzy! Have a blessed weekend.

I’m sure I’ve read it, Becca, but give me the url for I’d love to give it a 2nd read. I’ll link I to this one, too.
I’m not a fan of the word – awesome – I think it’s been over used but in this case it could be the perfect substitute for gratitude.

Delightful as always Issy!
Was it from you I got the idea of a gratitude jar? Not sure, but anyway I’m keeping one this year!

A marvelous idea, Gilly, to keep a Gratitude Jar. It wasn’t from me that you had gotten the idea.
I had a gratitude jar, years ago, when a clay artist made a jar that looked like a honey jar and
inscribed the word Gratitude on it. She had lots of people purchase it as it was a wonderful way
to express our appreciation for life. Good for you in having one.
Thanks for always enjoying my nurture posts.
