If there was No Color, what Color would we be?

If there was no color,
What color would we be?

Invisible ink that disappears as soon as it’s written.

Same on the inside as we are on the outside.  Different genes, shapes and sizes coming from different countries and nationalities but all wanting the same thing …. peace and harmony. 

What color would we be if our eyes couldn’t see?
Invisible ink that disappears as soon as it’s written.

Writing a new script and a new path as those before us started… 
up to us, to continue their legacy. 

If there was no color, what color would we be?  
Invisible ink that disappears as soon as it’s written. 

Yellow, black, blue, orange, purple, white, red will all be brown someday.  Same on the inside as we are on the outside. All the colors of the rainbow, beautiful and bright, a melting pot of delight.

If there was no color what color would we be? 
Invisible ink that disappears as soon as it’s written.

Yearning for the same thing;  food, shelter, love and peace and harmony. 
And if our words spoke love, what would happen to our hearts?

What color would we be if our hearts couldn’t see?
Invisible ink that disappears from the page.

Wrongs made right where no one gets even. 
Would the hate disappear and violence and greed?  An eye for an eye never brought anyone back.  Would the bullying stop, if our colors were one and our preferences honored?

What color would we be if our eyes couldn’t see and our hearts could open in acceptance 
For every man, woman and creature?

Call me naïve, a hippie at heart
How could we remedy the injustices from the very start? 

What color would we be if our eyes didn’t see?
Invisible ink that disappears as soon as it’s written.

I wish we could go back to when we were young and carefree.
Where did we go wrong?
What could we have done to rectify the wrongs, from these atrocities?

If there was no color what color would we be?
Invisible ink that disappears as soon as it’s written.  

That’s who I want to be…. Invisible ink!

Yes, I’m ridiculed for having unrealistic ideals but I’ll continue to hold my head high and my hands open with a hand up, not a hand out for our fellow mankind no matter what color we be.

The world would be boring if our eyes couldn’t see;  so honor all of our colors;  the rainbows of differences,  that give color to our world. There are bad ones and good ones, and it is seen in all races, genders, religions, and countries my new motto is just don’t be an asshole.

Hi Friends,

I had written this piece within hours of recieving this text from my oldest daughter below. The last line was hers and I just had to add it:

Just found this video again, that I loved sooooo much when our minister at church played it years ago… I think this is the ultimate message that I believe in, and I get frustrated with a country trying to divide us instead of unite us… this is the message I believe in…. thought I’d share with you. I shared this in my classroom years ago, after I saw it, and it terrifies me that it might not be something I could share again for fear of being “canceled” in today’s society… love you! Thought I’d share, so you can see my thoughts versus how you sometimes think of me when we debate, lol

This was where I thought society was heading, and I was always so hopeful, this past year has made me much more cynical.

This was truly heartfelf for me to receive and we go round and round in discussions and things are so jumbled in our world today, it’s been an example of not being able to see the other person or what is going on in their psyche and hearts. It was also validating knowing that church in the young years actually are imbedded in her psyche of love in action.

I sent her my above poem and here was her response back which I just love.

Lovely mama, it’s all about heart, there are bad ones and good ones, and it is seen in all races, genders, religions and nationalities, etc. my new motto is just don’t be an asshole.

I laughed so hard and of course I later sat back and thought about why people have been assholes and what has happened to them in their life to go down this path. There is a lot of reasons for sure and it’s my job to help people uncover and heal the parts of themselves that made them assholes. I’ve been feeling sorry for the coyote laying at my pool and wondering if I could tame him.
Oh God I thought, “DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE”.

I LOVE THIS VIDEO and am proud to share it and If it’s politically incorrect and I’m “cancelled”, I’ll take my chances and thank my daughter for sharing it with me.

Have a wonderful day and be your bright colorful bold self!
Just DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE!
What color would you be if you could choose any one that you love?

I would be purple or mayber blue and purple.

I so much appreciate your time, liking (if you do of course), comment and or share if you’re inclined.

Follow Your Own Moral Compass

I am so sad and shell shocked once again by the mass shootings, along with the suicide rate rising as I’m sure you are as well. This is a reflection of the inner pressures that build, creating a rage internally that gets displaced by either turning outward or inward. Seek help NOW if you are suffering from thoughts of destruction and save your life and the lives of others. Thoughts are only thoughts so don’t judge yourself, but actions are irreplaceable. Pick up the phone and get help NOW. My heart goes out to all of the families and friends that have lost someone.

Thank you so much for dropping in today. Life is precious and so are you. I truly appreciate your time to like (if you do of course), comment and or share if you are inclined. Take good care of you!

Blessings of love,

We Walk The Tightrope of Time

Photo by Gantas Vaiu010diulu0117nas on Pexels.com

No one makes it out alive:
Some travel straight
Some veer off
Some in their own backyard
Some over mountaintops
Some to far off lands.

Either way, there are the peaks and valleys
We travel with others and sometimes alone
Wearing many masks along the way.

Our travels always take us back home to the essence of who we are and where we came.
Walk the journey in love and when you fall down brush yourself off and never look back.
There are many stories in your bones, 
Some to be told and some to strengthen your spirit.  

Live a life that you can call your own, that houses your soul
so when you make your way to your next dimension,
You can take your place as the star that you are, shinning brightly.
Yes, we walk the tightrope of time, TRUST IT!

Congratulations; Fail Until You Succeed!

Do you ever feel discouraged by the amount of attempts you make at trying to get something right?

I do!!!!!! Just after I wrote the quote below and added it to a picture I took on Canva with my print over lay, I couldn’t remember how to upload it and I had to ask my son for help. It is one of my biggest fears because he quickly looses his patience and I am back to my 5 year old self feeling very inadequate. He can’t understand how I can’t remember something we have already done twice even though it’s in my notes. I’m a kinestetic learner which simply means I have to do it over and over again until it becomes second nature. If a few weeks goes by and I haven’t practiced it, it’s like starting over.

I burst into tears which I tried to push back to save face but couldn’t. It happened right after I taught my “No Gut’s No Glory” class on Zoom, which was a disaster, so I was a little more fragile than I usually am. So there you have it, I was a gutless glory mess. 🤣 After a year of doing this, I pretty much have it mastered but the internet guy came a couple of weeks ago to fix something else and ended up fouling up my studio connection and I lost service all throughout teaching. And yes, I had a few other things I was dealing with as well. I’m not usually this thin skinned but hey, it happens to the best of us!

My son apologized for being so short tempered which was appreciated. Now, I’m trying to figure out how I can open up this picture halfway in reader so the whole thing doesn’t show. However, I don’t dare ask him because I can’t handle the wrath of sonny boy again. I usually would ask my assistant that’s been with me for 4 years but he’s dropped off the face of the earth in the last 2 months. T, Call Home but don’t come looking for a job reference if you’re reading this because, seriously, this isn’t how you leave a job. Ok, I want my cash bonus back. 🤣 Just kidding but all of you, do take note if any of you are considering leaving your job; it doesn’t look good on your resume not to tie up loose ends and you might end up on someone’s post 🤣!!! So, I encourage you to go through the proper channels; Covid or No Covid.

All this is to say that I feel your pain, if you are anything like me or are dealing with a challenging day ahead. Keep breathing and rememeber you aren’t alone.

And with that, I now know why this quote I posted on Lisa’s post resonated so deeply with me yesterday (it wasn’t verbatim). Life is so predictably unpredictable. As soon as I said it, I knew I was going to post some version of it but I had no clue that I was writing it for myself until now. I hope it’s useful to you as well. Also, if you can easily explain how to open a picture just halfway in the event I didn’t do it right as a “teaser”, please do tell.

Thanks so much for your constant support and encouragement. Have a wonderful day ahead with blessings, laughter and always love.

Please remember to like (if you do of course), comment and or share. It truly is appreciated.

Cheers,

💖

Haiku Contest

The Garden at Filoli

With a little prodding from David, support from Chuck and Kumar, expertise from Goff, and all of my family, I entered a local haiku contest at Filoli. Mind you I am not a Haiku writer nor do I consider myself a poet although poetry, I write.

I saw the contest in an email and then with prodding from who other than my mom (my biggest cheerleader), I thought “why not”. I had zero expectations since I wasn’t even sure I knew what I was doing but that was part of the fun and took any expectation or pressure off. It was really cute because I had my family memebers vote on them and 3 even made up one of their own. Thank you all for the support.

Winter at Filoli is a time of quiet and reflection in the Garden. Submit a haiku inspired by Filoli’s winter garden to our Haiku Poetry Competition for your chance to win a Household Plus Membership and a beautiful gift basket of Filoli approved goodies. Please submit 3 haikus.


“short and dense hedgesfaded red, perfectly trimmedrun around the path”
Eli Schlanger, under 18 winner from Filoli’s 2020 Haiku Competition
Last Years Winner

My Enteries:


stroll the gifts of peace 
hearts heal strolling sacred grounds 
blooms burst hope and Joy 

respite found strolling 
pristine grounds open up hearts 
blooms burst joy and peace 

amid troubled time
gifts of peace on winter grounds
flowers burst, joy found

Enjoy moments of peace and beauty around the winter Garden while you listen to haikus from our finalists. Do you have a favorite? A winner is yet to be selected! Join our Instagram Live on the 14th to hear the announcement. Could one be me? Doubtful but now I thought “well, why not”.

Did you hear mine? Neither did I 🤣 because I didn’t win. I noticed that it wasn’t the traditional Haiku that I tried to follow in the
5, 7, 5 syllable format that I expected and this is a very formal garden. I emailed wondering about the guidelines and she said they decided to break suit from their usual traditional format. It’s ironic because I write much more free flowing as you might know if you read my work. The funny part that caught me by surprise was that I was a little bit disappointed. I knew this was a long shot and I didn’t think twice about it until I didn’t come up even placing.

I remembered back to all of the things I have ever entered and I only did so when I was so polished and every move was rehearsed in my mind and body until I knew I would win. It’s as though I dreampt it into fruition and there was no chance for failure whether it was cheerleading, pom pom girl, Miss Daly City, a job, being a dancer on broadway etc.

I did have one time I decided I didn’t want to win when I tried out for Miss San Mateo, and I didn’t win. I really did all of this for my mother and I’d had enough. My mother’s words were “it was rigged”. 🤣 Oh for a mothers love of her child. My mom asked if I won this contest and I said I did not and she said and I quote:

“Well that sucks probably the winners are long time members with clout. I thought your entry was worthy of winning” 😍

Oh for a mother’s love! Any disappointment I felt left because I won in my mothers eyes. Naive as she was, it is the heart of a mother that loves so deep and see’s her children in all of her glory (or should) and all of their disappointment, no matter what the world sees, loves you anyway and that is unconditional, skewed love.

I realized I had never let myself do anything without perfecting it, and it is ok just to try, without the pressure of having to win. That was the gift of entering this contest. I didn’t win and it was ok. The blessing of a mother’s love no matter if you win or loose, is a gift. In her eyes, I am always a winner and if I do one thing right in this world, if I can pass that down to my kids and the people I love, then I am a winner in the true sense of the word. “May all of your losses be wins of your heart”.

Thank you once again to all of you who helped me in one way or another, reading and being a constant source of support in my life! I will be doing a Fri-Yay Funday here sometime in the near future and sharing it with you because it has so much rich history and is a beautiful place to write.

Blessings,

Let Go and Feel the Love

Hey Valentines,

I know it’s the love week but before we can let love in, we have to make space inside to receive it.  I have been having more and more profound experiences of letting go and wanted to share my insights with you. This is longer than a lot of my posts to give you forewarning so feel free to skim and take what suits you; but if letting go is an issue for you, read on until the end. 

“When you walk away from something or someone, you walk towards yourself”

Letting to go is easier said than done
I see the imprints of my nails dug into my hands
As I say the words;  Let Go
Give it up, release it, surrender, move on
Any of those words have the same response on my nervous system”.

Ever notice as soon as you say the words let go, you dig in a little more and even your toenails curl under.
Shoulders tighten jaw clenches, muscles move into spasm.
Or maybe you say the words “I’ve let go” but deep down you know you’ve done nothing of the sort.
So why bother to try to let go at all? The real question is how do you do it truly, instead of just uttering the words.

It’s a lot like saying “don’t think of the elephant in the room”.  What’s the first thing you think of?
The elephant, of course and we all know this to be true.

So, how do you actually do it? 

There are so many self help books written on the subject and they’re all really good. It takes lots of practice and practice makes perfect as we know.  But friends, I’ll be the first to tell you;  it ain’t easy and if it was, there wouldn’t be so many books on the subject.

Here’s the list you’ll always see in books to conquer letting go:

  1. Visualize yourself letting go in your minds eye and releasing it up in a balloon out to sea etc
  2. Meditate by taking some deep breaths and stay in the present moment focusing on a candle or a mantra.
  3. Say your affirmations over and over in your mind
  4. Burn what you want to let go of
  5. Throw rocks in a pond 
  6. Do Yoga or exercise
  7. Write in your journal 
  8. Breath-work 
  9. Listen to music it changes your brain
  10. Go to therapy or see a life coach to find the underlying cause
  11. Go on vacation
  12. Move: Ever notice, wherever you go, there you are?  There’s even a book on this.
  13. Color or draw or splatter paint.
  14. Accept yourself right where you are and let go of self loathing.

Take a few minutes to add to the list so you can make it your own.

Home Games:

  1. Pick 1 or 2 of these and start practicing one of these modalities every day for 5 minutes and do it 2 or 3 times if you can.  Do this for a month and see this issue resolved.  Of course it truly depends on the incident in your life that you are trying to let go of.  There are obviously some that have a much greater pull on your heartstrings.  

2. The other thing is to just accept that you aren’t there yet!  We know Rome wasn’t built in a day but
we are so impatient.

Be gentle with yourself while you practice this new skill of letting go. Start letting go of little things first and say “as I let go, I free up space to be more of who I am now.  I am safe, secure and happy”.   Write that somewhere where you can see it everyday and make it your mantra. 

I promise you the more you practice the better you get, until you can walk away from the drama and upset of others you no longer need or want in your life. This is so freeing and a breath of fresh air.  We do our best to be loving and kind but we can’t please everyone.  Remember, people are processing their own internal issues and most often it has nothing to do with you. We are each mirrors for one another to reflect back what internal work we need to do on ourselves. People often can’t see the part they play and it’s easier to place blame and become victims, rather than take responsibility for our own shortcomings..

“When you walk towards yourself you might feel afraid.  Heart racing, temperature elevating, clammy palms or hands, throat gripping and that’s ok.  A part of you wants to flee, but can you just be with yourself like a mother holds her baby in a colic fit with no judgement;  just love? Love will set you free”.

Notice the sensations and just be with them and take a deep breath.  Become a silent observer of your mind, body, spirit and actions and hold yourself lovingly and kindly. It will pass but you have to face and accept your feelings as they are in the moment.  That is when true acceptance and change takes place. It will become second nature at some point but it starts with a simple shift of thought and  action.  

Start now, practice and celebrate your small wins.

Many of you know the heartache I’ve been going through with seeing our geriatric dog Harry, through his final days. Some of you might be thinking, “Gosh, we’re so tired of hearing about it, why doesn’t she put him down already”. Or others might be feeling the same thing about something in your life, so you empathize with what I’m going through. We only see through our own lens cap and know our own suffering.  

We had an emergency scare the other night when his legs involuntarily started flailing everywhere and we thought  he might be having a seizure and started panicking.  I called all of our vets including our emergency vet with no luck. We were beside ourselves and I suddenly remembered someone in the family’s ex husband was a vet.  In our desperation I picked up the phone and called his daughter to get his number.  In seconds I got a text from her mother saying “this made all of us uncomfortable; next time call me”.  I apologized profusely and explained we were reaching out because we were desperately trying to help Harry in case we had to put him down.  As you most likely know in Covid, they won’t let you go in with your pet and we couldn’t imagine not being with Harry during his last breath.  Her next text was “You made my daughter very uncomfortable, plenty of vets in the area” (her daughter is an adult mind you). My first reaction was anger and I quickly let it go.  Emergencies do that for us and in a split second I moved on to Harry’s needs.  I gave him some CBD and that did the trick and he slept soundly through the night. 

I dropped the anger instantaneously and only felt sad that she was still hanging on to such upset.  There was no question of me walking towards this drama and I simply didn’t respond back and walked away in love and kindness.  It was over for me and there was no pull to clear it up etc. I could just walk away and take care of me and Harry and know I had the highest intentions for my dog with no malintent to her family.   

In the old days, I may have tried to go back and clean up a mess that wasn’t mine to begin with, which could have made more entanglement and after all I did apologize.  If you are an empath, or you had to get approval from your parents so they would finally see you, you tend to think everything is your fault. We know when we hold anger and resentment, we only hurt ourselves and moving forward without casting stones is always the right answer and I felt good about that. 

“And when love sets you free, you can truly let go and you feel it in your bones, your psyche, your tissues and your spirit.  Something more beautiful will enter your life.  It always does. Let Go and Feel the Love”. 

Congratulate yourself for honoring your truth without creating more drama and upset that was never yours to begin with. There is something very powerful in sharing your truth in love and letting go. We never know how the other person processes things, nor is it our job to “fix others”. By caring for our needs deeply we give everyone around us a chance to resolve their own issues and heal whatever it is that they need to heal when and if they are ready.

As for Harry, I found out the next day that the vet will let 2 of us go with him to say farewell when the unfortunate day comes to send him to the rainbow bridge, but he’s not ready yet..this moment anyway.

Keep walking towards yourself in freedom and love! 

“When you walk away from something or someone, you walk towards yourself”.
When you walk towards yourself you might feel afraid.  Heart racing, temperature elevating, clammy palms or hands, throat gripping and that’s ok.  A part of you wants to flee, but can you just be with yourself like a mother holds her baby in a colic fit with no judgement;  just love? Love will set you free.
And when love sets you free, you can truly let go and you feel it in your bones, your psyche, your tissues and your spirit.  Something more beautiful will enter your life.  It always does, let go and feel the love”.

Love Now

Love now
Tomorrow might be gone
Let your heart burst open 
Shout it on a mountain, and down In the valley
Run to the roof top and let it echo to the sky
Call your friends and family and tell them how you feel
Open up the flood gates and share before it’s too late.

Yesterday when I was teaching a dear friend that was taking class shared this tragic story below, of her 23 year old niece, Pua that was in a snow accident and is in a coma. Please pray for her as you go about your day, it would mean so much. 💖

Pua in Hilo Bay
Pua means Heavenly Flower

Dear Friends,
Thanks for your prayers and healing thoughts after learning my niece’s terrible accident after class today. When there is a big snow storm on the top of Mauna Kea, many local people go to the top of themountain to play in the snow. Pua went up with her cousins and friends and their boogie boards, unfortunately it iced up at the end of the day and her last run ended very badly. She quickly lost control and speed at very high speed to the bottom of a snow bowl, when her board hit a bump she was launched in the air and landed in lava rock. She suffered extensive injuries including numerous broken bones and a severe head injury.  An ambulance took her to Hilo hospital and from there she was medevaced to Queens hospital on Oahu with a good ICU that can handle traumatic injuries.    She is in an induced comma and will have multiple surgeries on her long hard road to recovery.    Malia and Wallace have medical insurance but their out of pocket costs for medical bills, flights to Oahu, a place to stay on Oahu , ect. will be significant.
Friends of Pua brought dinner over to my sister Malia’s  the night after the accident and started a Go Fund Me site.  The love and support she has received has been overwhelming.  https://gofund.me/69753c2f

 The article below was in the local news last weekend……..
https://www.khon2.com/local-news/big-island-woman-remains-in-icu-after-snow-incident-on-mauna-kea/
Your healing thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
Mahalo,
Maris

Have a wonderful day, treat yourself well and know you are loved. Make sure to let others know how much you love them as well. Life is uncertain, fragile and precious.

So much love to you as you move through your day!

❤️🙏

Winds Blow Uncertainty

Photo by Julia Volk on Pexels.com

Winds blow Uncertainty 
Cleansing aching hearts
The sun hides behind the fog
Waiting patiently to burn off

In the distant horizon ships pass by
Planes fly high 
Birds sing while vultures circle
Waiting to be fed  

Life is fragile 
Struggling to find words
Dialing the phone 
Nobody’s home 
I just called to say goodbye

The whistle blows
Tears flow back to the ocean 
The fog burns off 
And the sun glows

We return again and again
Rainbows bring hope to despair
Everlasting light 
Wind blows uncertainty 

Let’s not say Goodbye!
Until we meet again….
Farewell my friend 

This comes at a time where we struggle with our sweet dog Harry. Some of you have been so kind to share Harry’s journey with us.  He’s dependent on our every need, still eating happily and sleeping between us an night.  He has no use of his front legs now either.  I pray for miracles and work on him but the time is nearing. Some days his needs are greater than we can bear because he’s dependent on us for his every movement and it’s challenging. It’s a lot like having a newborn and trying to figure out what they need but you know they will grow up and leave the nest and fly. In this case we know we will have to say goodbye. Every time we decide it’s time to send him off to The Rainbow Bridge, he eats another meal and looks at us with those big brown eyes and we just can’t do it. We’re heading out for a hike now and pushing him in the stroller to get some fresh air.

Covid numbers are increasing here in California  with a record high of 779 deaths on Friday.

We were watching the news last night and heard Larry King, the Brooklyn-bred man who became cable TV’s most well-known talk show host, died. He was 87.

Over the course of more than five decades in radio and TV broadcasting, half of it spent hosting CNN’s “Larry King Live,” King mingled with the famous and infamous and average people who became either. We watched his shows and had no idea of his colorful life at the time but loved his great interviews.

By his count, he interviewed more than 60,000 subjects, and when his run on cable ended in 2010, he segued to the internet with “Larry King Now,” a daily talk show on Hulu from Ora TV, and became an active presence on Twitter. 

Larry’s last words were “Let’s not say Goodbye but rather, Until We Meet Again, Farwell”.

Life is short; days may seem long or fly by and it’s definitely uncertain. Pick up the phone and let someone you know you’re thinking of them, email or send a card. There is nothing like old snail mail. Love yourself and love others, life is fleeting.

Thanks so much for reading today, liking (if you do of course), commenting and or sharing.

Always love and light as you travel through your day!

Fri Yay Fun Day or WTF

Photo by Jeff Stapleton

Hi Friends,

If I am to be completely honest, I’m not feeling too fun at the moment. I have always been accused by my clients and most friends of being “too happy”. A dear client who transitioned at 86 used to say “OH NO, here comes Ms. Happy” when I showed up twice a week to put her through the exercise paces. The last thing she wanted to do with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) was see me and yet it was the high point in her day.

I think of her today and the many I have lost over the years ( B.C. before covid) that were so near and dear to my heart. Some of them who had weathered the storms of the ages and some not able to see their kids graduate and I know they would be turning over in their graves right now with the current state of affairs in our country,

I stay happy because I usually stay away from the news and don’t allow toxic informaion that I have no control over to invade my psyche. I energetically stay positive and send energy by tapping into divine truth that raises my level of counsousioness and recharges me so I can be a conduit for others to do the same. It does no good to go down the tubes when I know that healing is going on at it’s deepest level and cleansing out the toxity in a situation is vital, no matter how ugly it gets. We have a choice, we can align with the divine and be a vessle for light and love to enter through darkness or we can let it envelop us.

I was glued to the news inbetween clients and shaken like most people I know, as we watched the unfathomable of breaking into our capital and vandalizing sacred ground incited by our leaders. I’m not here to talk politics. This is a deep time of mourning no matter what you are for or against and violence and threatening our democracy no matter what, is deplorable and never ok. So, I guess you would say, I’m in shock and mourning.

I decided on January 1rst that I would write a quote everyday this year and at the end of the year, if I don’t have the book I’m workng on ready, I will have a book of meditative quotes from the year. I wrote this for next year.

Jan. 6th 2021

Let the music of silence fill your heart with stillness
The lyrics might be out of tune and your ears might need to filter out 
The noises all around you
Surrender and let go as you dance through your day in light and love.

It’s hard to ignore voices of the outside world especially in despicable acts of violence trying to drown out truth.

How do me maintain composure and honor and do what’s right, when every ounce of you wants to retaliate?

It’s not easy to be witness to the atrocities of the world, destruction, violence, greed, anger, racism, rape;  whatever the case may be.  Last year today it was an assault to our democracy in America.  Wherever you live, who ever you are, you know the feeling of being a victim of unjust behavior.  We have every right to feel sad, scared and angry and yet we must remember that truth prevails and light overshadows darkness.

Our own inner world and mind can be as damaging to ourselves as what happens in the outside world.

Close your eyes and breath and ignite the light so we together can collectively find peace amidst chaos and confusion.  Breath in and breath out as you settle the restlessness in your bones, so you can be part of the solution not the problem. 

Sing a song of joy and goodness as you ignite the light.   

On a happy note, I ended up staying home while my husband and son headed to the lake last night so I could take care of my soul on a deep level and enjoy the stillness of the morning. I’ll head up later but in the meantime, the morning is heaven as it always is when the sun comes to greet the day and I’m cuddled in, nestled between the sheets with my beloved cats.

I’ll be wandering to the lake soon after meditaion and my morning ritual of writing and the fun will begin. However you find yourself, honor your feelings and heart and treat yourself well. Enjoy your weekend and find respite no matter what’s going on in your world. I’ll see you on Monday with some exercise tips and an interview that Yvette from Priorhouse did on me, in case you haven’t seen it yet.

And have fun. After all, it’s Friday Funday and someone has to do it, so it might as well be you.

Stay Blessed, be bold and know you are love.
