A Reminder for Gratitude

Happy Friday friends,

We’re inside a tough time right now, but this too shall pass and we will get through it.

Now more than ever we need to have faith, hope, keep a positive mindset and love in our heart.  And we need to remind ourselves of the bounty that surrounds us and give thanks for all that we have to be grateful for.

I have a rosemary bush that grows outside my house, it was here when I moved in and is still absolutely gorgeous.  I love the scent of rosemary and I love the little purple flowers that show themselves in the Spring.  I love cutting some sprigs and bringing them inside so I can admire their beauty and smell them as I walk by.  It uplifts my spirit and fills me with hope and gratitude.  I am grateful.

I invite you to take a moment to reflect on the good that is around you.  Bring a little sunshine into your home, say thank you, be grateful for today.

And I’d love it if you would share your gratefulness today here with us.

Blessings

A Little Beauty for the Heart

Sunday blessings friends.

During this trying time, I like most all of us, am trying to stay calm, be aware of what’s going on, stay home, which I’m actually quite happy to do, since I’m a homebody at heart, and dealing with the situation the best I can.

They say that looking at beautiful things can improve the quality of your life and create happiness within.  I think that we should give ourselves something beautiful to look at every day and especially now, reflect on the beauty around you and nourish your heart.

Yesterday I spent time looking through some of my recent photos I don’t think I’ve shared, and found these that made me feel good, happy and smile.  I think that flowers have that affect on most of us.  A connection with nature that uplifts our spirit.  And strangely enough I feel a connection to the entire universe, a oneness.

Love, prayers and many blessings!

A Sunday Love Note

Hello everyone,

How are you now a couple of weeks into the new year?  I feel really excited and ready to create new content and move into a new direction.  I’ll be sharing ways to “Love Yourself” and “How to Manifest Your Desires” to live a Sweeter Life.  So psyched!!!  🙂

And talking about self-love, here’s a little Sunday love note reminding you to –

pink flower

Go gently with yourself today.

Ask yourself how you want to feel.  What would make you feel pampered today?

Put away your to-do list and give yourself a little rest, it’s OK to do nothing sometime. 🙂

I was inspired by the lovely Sarah Jensen today, I’m doing a journaling course with her, you can find her over here.

I’d love to hear from you, how are you pampering yourself today?

Blessings

December is all about Being in the Moment

December is all about being in the moment.

Finding that one moment in the day that brings you joy, that slows you down for an instant, that makes you feel the wonder.  That you set aside your to do lists, stop the rushing about and just enjoy – being in the moment – Breathe…

This is my – in the moment – today.  I opened the shade and WOW!

Every morning I’m blessed with the magnificence of these birds, I say hello my friends, and we greet the day together.  But for some reason this morning it just hit me in a special way.  I stood there staring at them, with a huge smile on my face, just watching them for a moment longer than I usually do.  And it came to me that I’m making December a month of stopping, even if it’s just for a moment, and breathing in the wonder of this amazing Universe.

Join me in making December a month of being in the moment and finding a WOW every day for yourself.  Set the intention for it and it will show itself to you.  You may also want to keep a journal of the WOW you find every day, so at the end of the month you can look at all the wonder moments you had.

I’d love to hear from you, love to know your WOW, feel free to post in the comments every day if you wish.

Have a magnificent December everyone.

Blessings

A Pause in the Day

A simple pause in the day –

tree green2

It’s amazing what a moment of pause, of placing your focus on something else can do for you.  While I was out earlier, I was lost in thought thinking about how limited I am right now in my mobility, how life has a way of slowing you down, when suddenly I noticed the tree with its green leaves against the blue sky and the gorgeous clouds, and everything changed, and gratitude showed up.

Happy day!!!

Blessings
