Divorce 7-14-18

I was talking to a friend yesterday who is going through a divorce. For those of you have been through one of those you can relate. Breakups or Starting over is no fun task. I encouraged my friend and reminded her there are 3 billion men in the world. Surely the right guy is out there. A couple of years ago I wrote this blog. I still laugh at myself when I read it. I shared this blog with her. We both found it to be hilarious. My point was, she’s not the first person to go through a break up. We’ve all been there and we’ve all gotten through it. Eventually looking back at the experience, like me we all find the humor in the whole thing, and we’re able to share our experience with someone else and inspire them to keep moving. I’ve since been blessed to find my knight in shining armor. Life is good once again. As for my break up, well it’s just a thing of the past I can poke fun at. I’m sharing this blog hoping to bring someone in need a good laugh.

Resolutions and Reconnecting

This is such a great read. Love it

Peace from Panic

Band Quote - Twitter Post

New Year’s resolutions are often broken or forgotten, right? Not this one. Not for me.

Back in early January, I’d written a post about having a fresh start and making resolutions, which I don’t like to do. They’re too much pressure. Instead, I prefer to strive for goals throughout the year.

BUT… This year I did make one resolution I was determined to follow through with:

Build deeper, more meaningful, richer relationships. Nourish those I have and create new ones, even if it means stepping out of my comfort zone.

Last fall, a friend introduced me to a book, The Gifts of Imperfection, by author and motivational speaker, Brene Brown, Ph.D. She writes about the importance of human connections. It reminded me that this is an area where I could use some improvement.

Brene says, “I define connections as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard…

Friday The 13th 7-13-18

Today is Friday the 13th. Friday the 13th isn’t all bad. It’s actually a great day to begin anew.

1. 13 is a Karmic Number.

It serves as a timely reminder to look deep within, release any harmful emotions not serving your greatest self, and recognize the parts of your soul that need to come to the surface and shine!

This is a potent theme right now, thanks to the supercharged New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer that darkened our skies late last night and into the wee hours of this morning.

Any confusion or sadness you are experiencing right now is helping you process some deep-seated emotions that you’ve never fully dealt with…

And you’re more ready than ever to experience the beautiful transformation!

2. 13 symbolizes renewal.

The year may be half over, but it’s not too late to make 2018 your most abundant and joyful year yet! There are more and more incredible opportunities for growth and abundance circulating every single day – just waiting to be claimed by those who understand the hidden energies, patterns and codes invisible to most.

In numerology, 13 is the number of upheaval and progress, but carries the #4’s influence of dedication and hard work (13, 1+3=4).

Perfectly timed with the New Supermoon, this Friday the 13th is a day for new beginnings and steady growth!

3. 13 is the number of life.

There are 13 lunar cycles in a year.

Women have 13 menstrual cycles in a year…

And 13 opportunities to create life.

4. Today is a double “13” day!

Not only is it the 13th day in the month, but July 13, 2018 is a “13” Universal Day!

July 13, 2018

= 7 + 13 + 2018

= 2038

= 2 + 0 + 3 + 8

= 13!

A double dose of 13 reinforces the powerful message of release, rebirth and transformation coded within this mysterious date.

Make Someone Smile Today

Be the reason someone smiles today.

Sometimes we can be so tuned inwards that we forget there is a whole world out there!

Be the reason someone smiles today. Whether it be a loved one or a stranger.

Do something that spreads a grin. It can be as simply as smiling first, letting them go first, telling a funny joke.

The list is endless. Be the reason someone smiles today.

We never know how much of a difference that could make to someone. How it not only elevates them, but also yourself.

So today, think outside yourself. Be the smile bringer to who ever you come into contact with.

“I love being that someone that passes on good cheer”

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx

Grief and Grieving Does Take Time, Be Present For Others #Grief

#yeswecan

Back in 1999 at my first brokerage as a licensed agent in Boise, a gal named Janet told me her story of a daughter who died in a car accident. Sudden death is obliterating as I later found out 3.5 years ago when Paul died of complications from cardiac arrest.

One thing Janet told me, taught me, was that after the initial period after death and services or memorials, your friends and family go back to their lives. You are in their thoughts and perhaps their prayers, but the person grieving has no idea. Unless you reach out. Janet told me that what meant the most to her were her friends and loved ones that called frequently. Took her things, took her out, made sure she had someone to talk to.

Boise, Idaho just experienced a tragic loss because of an unspeakable attack on children and adults at an apartment…

Duck Butts 7-6-18

Duck Butts

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

Next time you see a duck butt, you might be inspired to examine your own ability to both float on the surface and to dive beneath it.

If you are lucky enough to live in a part of the world that is also a home to ducks, you will no doubt be familiar with the image of their cute feathery bottoms sticking up in the air as their heads disappear under the surface of the water. Perhaps you’ve even taken a moment to wonder what they see in their underwater world, and if they will resurface with a fish or a water bug in their beaks. As we observe them, we see that ducks are denizens of three worlds–the world of air, the world of water, and the world of earth. As such, they have adapted themselves to be able to swim, fly, and walk, and they seek and find nourishment in more than one place. They are symbols of versatility and can inspire us to explore our own ability to adapt and find nourishment in a variety of places.

Ducks are able to float, swim, and dive into the water, fishing for food. They can walk on the ground, eating vegetation and bugs, and they fly in the air to travel long distances relatively quickly. Equipped with feet that are equally good at paddling and walking, as well as wings to fly, ducks seem comfortable in just about any natural environment. Next time you see a duck bottom, you might be inspired to examine your own ability to both float on the surface and to dive beneath it. In many traditions, water symbolizes the emotions–to duck our heads into our emotions means we are able to surrender our minds to our hearts, to go into the watery realm of feeling and see what there is to see, often coming to the surface with nourishment and treasure.

At the same time, we share the duck’s ability to get solid ground under our feet by connecting to the earth on which we live simply by walking on it. And finally, when we reside in our spirits, we fly above the mental, emotional, and material realms, free of all the ties that bind us to this earth, traveling faster and farther than we ever thought possible.

Summer 6-3-18

Summer may be the most unconscious and muddled of the seasons. There is divine wisdom in this..Summer draws us into the labyrinth of sacred confusion whereby becoming lost we rediscover aspects of ourselves that habit, routine, and duty have held in check. Summer travel. for example. can be a maze in which we allow the unfamiliar to shock us into realizing that we are not as secure as we think and that our lives are awash in mystery…In deep summer, God woos us into the wilderness of unknowing where we are tempted by deeper senses.
