A Different Kind of Beautiful…

I heard the words “a different kind of beautiful” last night and for some reason those five words put me in a state of wonder…I couldn’t help but wonder about the beauty that surrounds us and the different perception others see. 

“They say” beauty is in the eye of the beholder…  So true…  Although, beautiful is something we see with our eyes and is recieved by our consciousness, True Beauty lives in our hearts and is embraced by our souls no matter how beautiful someone may think something  is or isn’t…

“A different kind of beautiful”…

How Much is Enough?

How much is enough? A question my dad would ask… He would laugh and say           “how much is enough anyway?” I remember it well, wondering the answer… How much is truly enough? 

Recently “enough” continues to come up. Wondering about myself, and where I am in life, I’ve heard these three little words over and over… “You are enough” 

A conformation of being still and knowing “I am enough” in all areas of my life! There have been doubts and struggles along the way, wondering about personal growth, accomplishments, and my own self image.  The message of “I am enough” has come through loud and clear recently.  A moment of accepting my life, the stage I am in and the season of wonder where life went, has been all too real.  Watching family pass, wondering about the existence of my life’s purpose and realizing the “next generation” is several generations ago… And all while knowing, no matter the wondering,  it’s all been enough! 

Life and its lessons, no matter the challenge, personal growth is its sweetest gift… When in doubt, remember this…    “You are enough!”

Call Me Old Fashion!

I can’t help but wonder… What’s happening to our society? Families too busy for each other, children watching some kind of technology, the expectation of “fast food” everywhere, lack of human emotional communication and on and on…

I’ve shut down! I’m overwhelmed by the influx of technical stimulation all around me and the lack of personal connection. People need people! Barbra Streisand sang that song back in the late 1960’s, which for some maybe considered too old fashioned! For me it was an exciting time in history… People, connection, growth, exploring the uniqueness of society… People reaching people through people NOT through technology! 

As the sang says… “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world!”  We need to re-teach our children to get OFF thier smart phones and emotionally interact with people! 

Technology has turned into a snowball effect… 15 years ago when my children were able to instant message (IM) off the desktop computer at home. at least they were still stuck in the house with people around. Then came the laptop and IM began traveling a little further away from people depending of the WFI connection…. And now we communicate with a small smart phone, we pull from our pockets to let someone know how we feel and what’s going on! 

I can’t help but wonder, what’s happened to our society and the ramifications technology will continue to have on all of us! Call me old fashion but I hate what I see happening to society, the family structure, our little children, the lack of respect from our teenagers and even how adults treat each other!  

There is a old saying… “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!” And today I say “Put your Apple away and talk with people today!”  

Each one of us can Stop the madness around us!  Here are some thoughts….

Pick up the phone and call someone instead of sending a Tex.

 Leave your phone off the table when eating out. 

Don’t allow children to take tablets everywhere they go.

Be a role model and don’t pick up the phone if you are with other people.

Be a person who needs people and connect with the human soul one on one in person! 

Love and life is about true human connection, let’s stop the madness and all start to really reconnect! And remember “People who need people are the luckiest people in the world!”

Teachers All Around…

Wondering when and if… Knowing Gods perfect timing and the energy of the universe is always at work… I couldn’t help but be in awe when this picture and comment popped up on FB this morning. A reminder of my love and passion of a posting 2 years ago today.

That same room today is a bedroom for my 90 year old dad… A unexpected situation, part of my story to be told as my lessons unfold! A teacher…. Who continues to teach me quietly.

A posting from a very special friend…
“Just like “Frosty” sings, “Put one foot in front of the other…soon you’ll be walking out that door” — as a published author! Another analogy I use (yes, I really quote Frost to my clients, friends, anyone who’ll listen — Hey, the best stuff can come from a cartoon — like Dory (you!), who says, “Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming”) is a skiing reference: “Don’t look too far down the hill”…but don’t stare at your skiis, either. You got all those? They’re what I tell myself, as I embark on this journey beside you, m’sister. Keeps the need for breathing into a brown paper bag at bay. :D”

Her downhill analogy caught my attention this morning and there I was Sunday skiing for the first time in 37 years… And my ski instructor said to me “don’t stare at your skies”… Reading her comment this morning from 2 years ago made me realize the forces of nature and all her energy has my back… God puts teachers in my life. Those who I am highly aware of and others I never saw as teachers until now!


An aha moment of unconditional Love knowing those who bring on the most stress in your life are the same ones who teach you the most profound lessons!

A Big World Out There…

The world
Its realm
Creating a path
Open arms to be joined
Strangers connecting
Personal growth happening…
Or is it?
Do you already know?
Are you willing to grow,
Be all you are called to be?
There’s a realm of the unknown…
A spiritual realm filled with energy
Waiting to be tapped.
Stillness, opens the heart and soul.
The quietness of any given moment…
If listened to, can change your energy.
How will you float today?
There’s a big world out there
What do you hear?
What will you add?
How will you be changed?

The Teacher Inside…

Life is our classroom… The student is both you and I. The teacher? Well, sometimes it takes awhile to recognize exactly who the teacher is.
I woke up this morning wondering… Am I the student in life or am I my own teacher? The advanced learner, those lead by wisdom teach themselves as they stumble through life as the student… Life lessons taught to oneself by being completely transparent and open to the reality of knowing they don’t know and needing to learn by being the student…
We all have the teacher inside. Some have more of a hunger to teach themselves once the student questions a life decision. The student teaches the teacher how to teach, all while the teacher was just waiting to be taught! You and I are both the student and the teacher… Remember life lessons you teach yourself, learn from them and never stop being the student!

The love, awe and wonder of it all!

The past several months have flown by… Filled to the brim with life circumstances, I couldn’t help but be in a state of wonder…so many emotions, so much life flying by. Bombarded came to mind this morning as I wondered why the lack of creativity for my writing… And then… I saw this post!

The hearts of course caught my attention, but the words “write a good one” made me wonder… Will I ever complete that dream? That book that I was so passionate about, I wonder how life got in the way, or did it? Which has me wondering, Life is the way…
Today being the “last blank page” of the past 365 days and tomorrow being the first blank page of 2015 I wonder how the next book will read… Each chapter connects to the next, some have me on edge, while others have me in wonder about life. Sometimes we are “bombarded” with life circumstances out of our control… The constant is… We All have life circumstances, We All have life choices to overcome, We All choose our own destiny…
So, this last blank page from the past 365 days, how will it be written? What will tomorrow’s blank page have on it? Will you make any changes to your non fiction novel?
Even if you feel bombarded by life and its circumstances, how will you fill your blank pages?

Happy New Year
Happy writing
Happy reading
Happy life….
What will be seen in 2015?

Takers and Givers

Years ago my 8 year old daughter said to me… “Mommy, there are givers and takers in this world and you are a ….” no wait… she said there are ” talkers and doers” and mommy you are a doer! Well, non the less, the point was profound coming from an 8 year old!

I saw this picture this morning posted on Facebook “TAKE” what you need. I thought great idea, but then I wondered about Giving what you already have… So those people who are givers and not just takers need to share what they possess. If we all just take, who will be left to give?

So this holiday season give some love, hope, peace, beauty… GIVE of yourself, it’s the most precious gift you will ever give….(you’ll never have to stand in a long return line!)

Happy Holidays filled with Love, awe and wonder….

I Sit…

I sit quietly in the still of the early morning hours…
About wondering…
Moments pass through my mind
Questioning decisions from the past,
Wondering about each perfect life lesson learned along the way…
So many stories
So many blessings
So much growth from pain…
Remembering being in the midst of it all.
Each time, wondering when it would end,
How I would survive…
I sit
Listening to the stillness of the morning
Counting my blessing
Wondering what I will learn next
Lessons, all from life experiences
Growth, should I choose…
All from life’s awareness…
Wondering as I sit
Knowing the blessings that surround me are from the heavens above…
God is just
God is merciful
God is us…
Wondering in the still of the early morning
Choices we choose…
Wondering why?
The world isn’t just filled with peace, love and joy…
In the stillness of the morning I sit wondering…
Filled with peace
Aware of hate
Embracing love
Releasing anger
Feeling joy…

Oh Christmas Tree…

I couldn’t help but smile when I saw this post on Facebook. Of course I felt bad for my friend for a brief moment, but then I just had to smile again!

I wonder often about this holiday season, it’s real meaning and how it’s gotten so out of control. I can’t even point a finger, I’m totally part of the madness! Not so much shopping and more shopping (although being a first time grandma I couldn’t help myself) but the whole crazy package of what we do to “celebrate” the season… All to often the “real” meaning of the season comes in last! Santa seems to be first for most, and again I have to admit I’ve been caught up in all the tinsel and lights!

I wonder about my own childhood, the baby Jesus, church and all our traditions… As I’ve aged I wonder more and more about the Christmas season. It’s certainly not like I remember as a child and now there are little grandchildren to create memories for…

So as the new traditions are created, perhaps for dessert on Christmas a birthday cake for the baby Jesus this year… In Addition, for me there is something so magical about Santa and Rudolf with his nose so bright… My own childhood comes alive!

But let’s remember what’s truly important…

Teaching children how to give and not just receive should be a priority… A great lesson to tie Santa and Gods gift of his son the baby Jesus during this Christmas Season.
Give love
Give love
Give love
However that looks for you…. Give love!
And please remember to tie down your Christmas tree! Oh Christmas Tree!

Thanks for the smile Lisa!

Living this Christmas season filled with love, awe and wonder…
