Do what you love,
and it will make your soul rich.
Do what you’d do
if you knew every dream could come true.
When you’re doing what you love,
it feels as if you’re flying.
Do what you love, today.
is the very essence of simplicity.
A drop of water
with its wondrous transparency.
A strand of a spider’s silk
with its elasticity and strength.
A tiny seed
that holds within it
the manifestation of a miracle.
and see how blue the sky is now and then.
Don’t forget to put away your cell phone
and spend time alone with a paintbrush or pen.
Don’t forget to seek the sound of silence
and let the daily traffic rush on by.
Remember that the secret of success is
how happily you climb and not how high.
floating with the wind.
Sailing across the water
of euphoric waves.
Turbulent ocean currents,
at times, control the way.
trapping your days.
But in time, buoyant and carefree
give rise to peaceful signs.
Erasing negative thinking,
as the waves settle down.
Our journey is for serene days,
our hearts ever-yearning for calm.
Soon, we will be sneering at
these turbulent times.
It’s the end of another year and the beginning of a new one.
Where did it go?
It’s been a ride.
I’ve enjoyed every one of those highs and lows on this roller coaster called life. All the ups and downs teach us lessons we need, to help us develop our mind, body and spirit.
We may stumble or have obstacles block us from going forward but they fall away once we accept this is the way it must be in that moment in time.
However you want to look at your life in 2019, the main thing to remember is that you are not alone. There is always someone guiding you in whatever form you choose to believe. Take comfort in knowing that the challenges your given are because you can endure them; no one gets what they cannot conquer.
Hold fast to your memories;
to all your cherished moments of the past;
to the blessings and the laughter;
to the joys and the celebrations;
to the sorrows and the tears;
They all add up to a treasure of fond yesterdays.
‘Thank You’ to everyone for being my supportive blogger friends. You’ve helped me to grow and become more than I was before I started this blog journey.
Happy New Year 2019
Almost everything will work again, if you Unplug for a few minutes, including You!
This post is about taking time to Unplug from the daily pressure of trying to keep up with social media. We fool ourselves into thinking that we have a grip on how much time we spend on our computers or smart phones but we do not. Our concerns for missing something that we believe is important for us to know prevents us from seeing the addiction. Communication has broken down between people.
I was having dinner at a restaurant before a play my husband was taking me to see for my birthday in July. It’s a lovely Japanese Restaurant with delicious food, sushi and furnished with traditional japanese paintings and decor.
A family of four came in and were seated at the next table beside ours. Shortly after getting their menu’s and ordering, they all grabbed their phones and focused on the screens before them. Sadly, they did that the entire time they were eating. No conversation occurred during the entire hour they sat at the table. After the father paid for the check, they got up and left.
Are we unable to leave media behind during a short one hour of eating?
Technology has given us many benefits. We can skype family in other states. We can talk and see members of our family during times when traveling isn’t possible. Being able to research subjects or learn on-line is a phenomenal tool; but, somethings been lost. We need to find it soon. Our children are missing many things they could experience from their parents or extended families. They’re lost by a mesmerizing screen that is constantly calling them.
Will this one day be an addiction like drugs and alcohol?
I hope not. Perhaps, finding a middle road for all to be happy can be a topic of conversation: at dinner?
I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you
which is of Love, and of Truth,
of Light and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you

As we walk this journey we call life, there are bound to be rocky roads.
Paths paved in stones of different shapes and sizes that cause us to stumble and fall.
These create suffering, heartache and pain.
At times, the rough terrain is difficult. But, we can polish the rocks smoothly if we believe in ourselves to carry on.
Its up to us to creatively approach our problems. We need to grind our own collection of rocks into precious gems.
Don’t lose heart as you continue to walk your path.
We can grind these rocks into polished brilliant stones.
