Personal Bubble – Time and Space

Rejuvenating from a hectic or stressful day is imperative.  However, I find the definition of rejuvenating is different for many of us.  For me personally, I require literal down time.  Whether it be sitting in silence,  maybe taking a walk in nature and calming my mind and body, or isolating myself just until I can come back out of my ‘shell’ and re-join what else…

Free Spirit Moments

Bo is  cooperative, so willing to please, and extremely loving.  Great Scottish Terrier, and an amazing best friend.  He is always willing to love, and be loved.  His nature is calm and tender.  Yet, he can be that ‘stubborn’ terrier when he wants to be!  Especially when a loud motor is going by on his walk…. Such a sweet spirited boy, he doesn’t balk at…

In Awe

Taking the time to just ‘breathe’ and stop the amazing overkill of ‘busy’ is very difficult.  Especially as a woman.  Everywhere I look, there is something to DO.  The floor needs sweeping, the marks on the walls need cleaning, there is laundry,  the drive to work, the work day, the computer mis-hap, the checkbook needs balancing, bills to pay….. I really believe we have a…

In His Father’s Arms

We heard from the vet today that it may be as quick as three months.  Could be more than that..each day is a gift. Trying to keep his routine as normal as possible, there still is an awareness inside that each event, each interaction, even his dinnertime is more meaningful. A wonderful lady in the waiting room was with me when Bo’s ultrasound was done,  which…

What You Think…Might Not Be So. Redirecting Content…

There are occasions when we think we can tell the “Universe” or “God” what we think is supposed to happen.  We push, we shove…something doesn’t 100% feel right, but we do it anyway.  We try to swim upstream, try to maniuplate situations so we can have it “our” way, only to find out, we may…just MAY…be ‘barking’ up the wrong tree.  So to Speak…or So…

What Makes You Feel Positively Awesome?

What do you do that makes you feel good?  Look good?  Or, even feel positive?  Do you enjoy cooking, or fresh sheets on the bed?  Do you love having a clean car?  Or maybe  you feel great when you volunteer at the art museum?  Whatever you do that creates a positive feel, gives you satisfaction, or warms your heart… isn’t it great how much you…

Looking Through the Door of Self Awareness

Hindsight is 20/20.  Looking back, we see clearly, all the mistakes we’ve made, with consequences to follow.  What seemed like the right thing at the time, changed our life forever.  Some good, some bad.  Some lessons learned, failures to admit, challenges we’ve conquered, and prices to pay. Interesting how some of us jump through hoops to make rapid choices based on what other’s advise, some…

What Makes You Whole?

Self esteem comes from within.  Feeling good about yourself, confidence, a simple balance of humbleness and kindness, as well as understanding and knowledge.  Empathy, patience, and sense of right and wrong.  I believe that self esteem also comes from knowing your own limits, while respecting those of others. It takes the journey of living, mistakes, hurts, sorrows, joys and defeats to gain the balance of…
