Flowers Help Lessen Stress

There’s one thing we don’t fight about: life can be pretty stressful. I’ve always had one great support system, though, and that’s my relationship to flowers and flowers to me. The more I focus on the magical mystery of flowers, the faster stress just evaporates. What a gift of nature!

MONDAY, August 10, 2020 – Camano Island, WA

Today, I am going to take a jug of bleach and make the house brilliant with good cheer. I am going to give it a good old try! We are alive! We are here and able to make the world a better place by connecting to a happier level of existence. We are able to live in the state of happiness. We just have to stop and choose to put on a happy face, to think of something more pleasant, to think of the ones in our home. Bet they can use a fellow housemate who has a positive outlook on life.

Face mask covers have been both a challenge and an opportunity for this high risk, older couple to make a contribution. What gets us up in the morning are thoughts of our family, especially our grandchildren, our friends and neighbors. We can visit over FaceTime or play remotely on PS4 games. Now we spend the major part of the day painting on our iPads or on canvas, able to offer them to the world. We love this connection with you. So, thank you!

Spring 2019 and Courage

For the past couple of years I have taken a few lessons on-line to play the piano. I soon took to learning a few chords and becoming lazy. Most of my family play by ear so I thought, why not me? At any rate, today I decided to play songs for spring and put them […]

Commitment to Write: Day 26 February 2019

It is fun to remember and talk about the past, but it is much more exhilarating to live the moment. This is what I plan to do today. Live the moment. I am going to practice fun!

Commitment to Write: Day 14 February 2019

This is a day for lighthearted fun! Cupid is not a serious character! — a little mischieveous, I’d say. This is a day to smile! Let your sunshine out! Sing, dance, speak in words that make eternal sense: ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE… doo, dah, doo, dah, doo!

Feelings Used As Guides

Happy Friday!  Hope you enjoy the adventure of life today! The video contains repetitive thoughts.  It is one thing to know something and another to act on it.  We can increase our level of happiness by relying on our feelings for direction and then acting on it.

Speaking of Love

All You Need Is Love — but how does it serve you? What if you think of love as an energy force that mirrors whatever it hears from you? What if you think of love as an energy force that is as close to you as you are to yourself? You use a heart drawing […]

Accepting the situation in front of you, changes everything!

There are many opportunities to change unhappy situations around us.  I guess we just don’t know that we have that power! Somehow we have come to believe that the only way to change a situation is to fight against it.  It appears that when bad things happen, we spend the majority of time talking about […]

For the love of Mother’s Day

Love expands.  It is movement, change, rearrangement and development. Love can withstand heat and cold, and when it does, it can change everything within and around it.  Love can soar above, below and within.  Love exists before, during and after our time here on earth.  Love is a good word we can use to hold […]

Love has a way of wrapping itself around every situation if you allow it.

What is it about receiving advice?

Up to now, I was uncomfortable with people giving me advice!  I still have that little toddler living within me, I want to do it myself! attitude.  I stopped listening when I heard someone tell me what I should do.  Up to now, I have not liked people assessing me.  It has made me feel uncomfortable […]

September 1, 2014 – Some thoughts

 Even when you are having fun, life slips by. Even when you sulk around, life slips by. Even when you fall in love, life slips by. Even when you are sick and frail, life slips by. There’s no way to stop the time you have in this one body. You might as well hug yourself […]

Five Ways to Combat Worry

We are at war.  Everyday.  We are not even aware. We wake up and try to smile at the day ahead.  Almost immediately our dutiful brains remind us of challenges, old debates and grudges we continue to hold.  Tapes begin to play in our heads. We are not even aware of them.  We dress to disguise […]

If I Am Honest

If I am honest…. My hands are big and bumpy with bulging veins. My feet burn with mild throbbing, vibrating pains. My stomach is unfeelingly large, old and lazy. My vision blurs in and out and mostly hazy. My arms are achy but able to lift. My hair is thinning.  My scalp adrift. My nose […]

Living In The Moment Means Ability To Succeed

Here is a good example of how negative thought can develop within any one of us. Egos can take over at a moment’s notice and if left unguarded can seriously impede the pursuit of happiness. Last evening a magazine salesman came to the door. A silent alarm was triggered within me: someone is ringing the […]

Choose Your Thoughts Or Your Thoughts Will Choose You

The more you choose your thoughts the more you can create the situation you desire. Most of us are not even aware of our thoughts.  Many times fear is a hidden, underlying thought that rules the day.  Fear can take on many faces:  fear of being late, fear of not measuring up, fear or losing […]

Love Is The Answer …. Every Day!

I believe in love.  I’ve known about it from the beginning.  I learned some of love’s lessons from my dear Nana who would welcome me into her deep, wonderful lap and hug. This was my first understanding of heaven.  I did not feel lost or alone.  I was confident of my worthiness.   My Nana […]
