A Labor of Love

This month I’m concentrating on using Louise Hay’s affirmations instead of random quotes for September Journaling. You can do with each post what you will, but do take a moment to read aloud and sit with the subject. If you feel drawn to writing about it, make sure you do it because that’s your innerContinue reading “A Labor of Love”

Fresh Start September

As a retired school teacher, I still get very excited for September, even after so many years of not having an official classroom. You can keep New Year’s Eve and just give me the newness, the fresh start that is September! I find it invigorating, don’t you? Because September brings a new school year fullContinue reading “Fresh Start September”

We All Just Want To Be Loved

As I get older, I find myself occasionally wishing for my Mom’s embrace. I was blessed that my Mom was very free with sharing her incredible hugging self and with her love for her children. She had a lot of love for everyone actually and I strive to follow in her footsteps. In fact, whenContinue reading “We All Just Want To Be Loved”

Lesson Learned

I’ve learned that even if you react, it won’t change a thing. It won’t make people hear you, it won’t magically change their minds. Sometimes it’s better to let things be, let people go, don’t ask for explanations, don’t chase answers and don’t expect people to understand where you’re coming from. I’ve learned that lifeContinue reading “Lesson Learned”

What Makes You Feel Good?

Jersey Girl

I couldn’t go through the summer without telling you I’m a Jersey Girl at heart. What does that mean? It means that I go to the beach, not the shore. It means that my happy place is toes in the sand, sun on my face and the smell of the ocean in my hair. ItContinue reading “Jersey Girl”

Don’t Worry

It’s Sunday so I thought it was a good day to talk about prayer. Even if you’re not religious, you understand the quote above. To me, it makes complete sense. In fact, it was as if a lightbulb went off in my head that hadn’t ignited before now. What you pay attention to increases; thereforeContinue reading “Don’t Worry”

Heaven and Hell

I find that humor helps in healing. Even a little dash of gallows humor works for me when things are looking bad. I can’t help myself and luckily for me, my family understands how I function when the chips are down. I try to find the best in the situation and a little giggle oftenContinue reading “Heaven and Hell”

Call On Me

I feel like I should be singing that song, Lean On Me, but honestly, my voice is a little froggy these days. Nothing to worry about except that allergies are affecting me. But the title to this post came to me in between thoughts, in the quiet of a moment, and I just jumped atContinue reading “Call On Me”

What Are You Doing With Your Life?

Nothing is impossible. The word itself says, “I’m possible!” Audrey Hepburn Do you ever wonder what you’re doing with your life? Do you ever think, this is not where I wanted to be at this age? Do you feel stymied by your circumstances? Can you not get out of your own way in order toContinue reading “What Are You Doing With Your Life?”
