Easter needs a garden where its peace and joy may grow, like daffodils that brightly bloom above the melting snow. So find a little time each day that you can set apart to cultivate some flowers in the garden of your heart. And then, throughout the busy days your happy heart will sing. And to the people that you meet, you'll be a breath of spring!

Wishing you quiet moments to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you...to think about the blessings in your life and feel renewed by the promise of Spring.

Have a lovely Easter!

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

emoticon Mirror, mirror on the wall I'll always get up after I fall.
And whether I run, walk or have to crawl emoticon
emoticon I'll set my goals and achieve them all!
~Chris Butler

We got 4 inches of wet, heavy snow. I shoveled it off. Back down to the cement again except for a berm of ice formed when the whole snow pack came sliding off the patio cover. But I did get a whole bunch of it chipped away. It was about 5 feet wide and 6 inches deep and is now about 18 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Hopefully Mother Nature will help me get it all off by mid-week. I have water coming in one basement window but can't really see where it's originating? I'm ready for Spring but I don't think it's in the near future. I'm not unhappy with the freeze-thaw method that is going on. If not for the refreeze at night I think we'd be in for serious flooding! Was sure surprised when I saw all that snow this morning!!

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."

emoticon Happy Groundhog Day emoticon
Old Groundhog stretched in his leafy bed.
He turned over slowly and then he said,
"I wonder if spring is on the way?
I'll go and check the weather today.
If I see my shadow between eleven and noon,
I then will know that I'm out too soon.
I'll crawl back in bed for six weeks more,
Pull up the warm covers and snore and snore. emoticon
But if no shadow gives me a scare,
I know that spring is in the air,
I'll wake my friends and wish them cheer,
With glorious news that spring is here."

Check out my Groundhog Day Blog!!

I don't think it makes one whit of difference what any old groundhog says...
BUT, if the radio alarm goes off at exactly 6:00 a.m. tomorrow and starts playing "I've Got You Babe", you might be in REAL trouble!!

The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!

Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!

Isn't this wonderful for February!!?
Thoughts for February!

Mystical Journey
11 hrs ·
I’ve had people in my past constantly telling me how I am in my imperfections: “You are broken. You need to fix this and that about you in order to move forward. You have to figure this out the right way without your nonsense. You have to allow for this and that because you are doing it the wrong way….” For most part of my adult life I happened to believe this Broken Theory and the need to fix, not only me, but others around me so that I didn’t feel broken. The truth is that I am not broken. I don’t need fixing. This is who I am and who I intend to travel down the road of life. Each part of me that has fallen, ached, fractured has also gotten herself up, healed and been whole. I am not needing to fix anything else. That desire to be super woman has diminished with time. Peace comes in accepting who I am with what I am and where I am with my truth.

You ARE NOT broken. You are learning. You are evolving. You are growing into the person you are meant to be. You are challenging your higher purpose and self. You are moving through this life with the things that matter: an open heart, wisdom, compassion, faith and grace. There is a constant focus in our society that we need to better ourselves at all times. We need to diet, avoid getting old, work ourselves into early graves, and never take the time to just sit with disappointments, obstacles, and mistakes. God forbid we actually acknowledge the dark side in ourselves! It is exhausting to think, that as a whole, we must take medicine, hide our imperfections, and avoid anything that pauses us into a state of deep awareness. We have such an imbalance in the body, the mind and the spirit because we are constantly looking outside of ourselves for answers that are already inside of us. We are not broken in the way that others have wanted us to believe. We are moving slowly, transitioning into another place, with each passing moment we are getting to know the truth in ourselves. We are embracing authenticity and all the beauty it has for us. This mass consciousness is never easy but to accept the labels of “brokenness or needing fixing,” well that is just unacceptable.

As we move through this next month allow yourself the moments of falling helplessly onto a sofa, a bed, and covering your head if that’s where you are in your life. This will pass! We must distant ourselves from others at times. It requires solitary confinement, peace, and lack of distractions. You will get there. First, stop accepting that you cannot get through this. Secondly, stop feeling that there is something horribly wrong with yourself. And, thirdly, the fixation of perfection is overrated. Who the hell wants to be like anyone else? You are magically beautiful. You are stupendously gorgeous. And you are the most AWEsomest person you will ever know. You are the Oneness of it all. Stop focusing on what isn’t. Accept what is and move on. You got this! After all the Divine doesn’t make mistakes!!!!

I ask that you be gentle with yourself this new month. Let the month of “Love” be about loving yourself first and foremost. There is beauty in this truth. I promise that when you feel the light of Oneness in you others will begin to feel that as well because it starts with You. Mucho love, my friends!

M.A.P.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

"You are destined to SUCCEED! We all have a crisis of confidence now and then.
But within each of us is a voice that whispers,"You can do it."
The more we listen, the louder and clearer it will become.
Deep down inside, you know you've got what it takes to achieve whatever you set your mind to.
So instead of ignoring that little voice, turn up the volume!"

Believe in yourself -
in the power you have
to control your own life, day by day,
Believe in the strength
that you have deep inside,
and your faith will help
show you the way.
Believe in tomorrow
and what it will bring -
let a hopeful heart carry you through,
For the things will work out
if you trust and believe
there's no limit
to what you can do.
