Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

My feet glide as the sun rises.
My spirit strong, my flesh weak,
I climb over the boulders of my mind.

I take each one as it comes,
sometimes tripping over a root in my path,
that always brings me home.

This struggle of inertia and zest is high,
where I linger longer contemplating my navel,
all before I leave my bed.

I cross rivers and streams,
delight in the critters on my path,
for one last moment.

The alarm sounds and I hit pause.
I hear the coffee percolate and follow my nose
to the whiff of my morning coffee and I begin to percolate.

Happy Fri-Yay Funday Dear Friends!

Do you know these days when you just want to pull the covers over your head and put your head in the sand?

Honestly, I have so many balls in the air right now, I don’t know if I’m coming or going. It’s all good and I’m elated about a lot of things, but it’s that feeling of “where to start first”?

Yesterday, I woke up and thought “wow, the day has started but it’s already over”. I had to stop my self right then and there and adjust my thinking. I took a deep breath and cleared all of the thoughts in my head for a few minutes. When I opened my eyes, I took my daily schedule out and prioritized to see what was realistic to accomplish and what wasn’t.

Life is a continuous process of stopping, breathing and readjusting to the present moment over and over again, until it becomes a way of living. We adapt to what we actually can and cannot do, rather than trying to put a square peg in a round hole. Listening and readjusting moment to moment are the gifts of the day, if we truly give ourselves space to receive our messages.

The truth is, we can only do one thing at a time, if we are really paying attention. I have always been the queen of multi tasking but when you spill your coffee on the way out the door, can’t find your keys or phone, it’s time to slow down. These days leaving the house is like driving in rush hour traffic with a maze of cars blocking my exit. I’m not complaining because it means the work on the house is getting done, but it’s challenging, none the less.

I’ve just pushed our finish date out from December 15th to December 22nd since it was touch and go, so the race is on. The kids arrive that night so fingers crossed they will have bedrooms to sleep in for the holidays.

My learning this week:

  • Set your intentions high!
  • Do the best you can!
  • Expect the moon and the stars to align!
  • Hold people accountable!
  • Everyone is disposable!
  • Hold your head high,
  • No matter the outcome!
  • Capture moments that take your breath away!
  • Regroup, expect and accept what you get!


    Ollie and I wish you a wonderful Fri-Yay and weekending. Whenever I start to complain about what a camera hog she is and how much these animals demand so much attention, I’m grateful they get me up out of the chair to stretch and move.

Stay blessed and remember to set your intentions high and be gentle with yourself!

Enjoy your weekending, until Monday!

💗

Cindy

Cindy, I just love reading your words, thoughts, and heart ❤️. It’s beautiful!! I learned of “mono tasking” this week. It’s true, some things for me are just better when I let go of all the other things to just focus on one! I kept tripping over all the things I tried to juggle and dropped. I fell flat on my faith so many times I learned finally. Well,…I keep learning daily lol. My cancer journey is teaching me to let go of my planning~to take one hour, one day at a time. It’s so liberating…but I feel a bit of anxiety at times when I WANT to plan knowing full well I may be setting myself up for disappointment! Thank you for blessing us all with your wisdom, kindness, humor, and authenticity! Love and hugs! 💕❤️🤗

I love you, too, Cindy! I’m so raw and open. I used to hide things down deep and it was not good when it came to the surface. I’ve always tried to be authentic. You’re authentic and we, your readers, can FEEL it. Thank you for your kind words ~you’re a wonderful teacher and human. 💕🥰🤗

So visually stimulating. I really enjoyed the sights on this journey and the smell and sound of the coffee percolating. Coffee gets me moving, too. It’s a real god send. 🙂
