Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Blissful Thursday

As I tip-toe across meadows and meander in moments of time I’m often amazed at what we take for granted, never  bothering to look at the things we should be thankful for.  Things like a loving family, caring friends, good health and a roof over our heads.

Over the past few months of tough times for so many I’ve heard mostly negative feedback, whining and so many why me’s. A large percentage of this has come from individuals that have so much to be thankful for and very little to cry about.

With all of the negative press and unhappy people it’s hard to focus on what truly matters most. After all that said I would like to proclaim this day, a day to be grateful, positive and hopefully contagious. My mission today is to spread positive energy with a smile, kind gesture or positive thought.  I will refuse any vibes of  the negative persuasion, only blissful energy will be allowed to enter my space. 

How about you? I dare you to join me in a blissful Thursday…

This is my time-my moment

Light sparkles through dew drops as they gingerly cling to life,  a multitude of colors dance about in the damp air, as I vow to never let the beauty of nature get old and unappreciated. It’s so easy to just walk by, unaware because our focus is someplace else, the bills that are due next week, the car that needs new tires, dentist appointments that need to be made and the fact that the dog is over due for her shots. So much to think about and so little time to enjoy simple pleasures. We feel as though there is no time to indulge in a blissful moment, or notice a beautiful landscape, a kind gesture from a friend, or the belly laugh of a child.  But there is always time for things that feed the soul and allow our better side to emerge. There is always time….

I took this image  a few weeks ago but hadn’t taken the time to fully appreciate the rainbow of colors or the simple beauty of  reflection until now. I find myself so into the details or what’s coming next that I forget to just purely live in the beauty of a simple moment and breath in everything it has to offer.

I know this is hard for many right now because things are so difficult. But even in difficult times there is beauty, people with kind hearts, a red cardinal in the tree and Christmas lights twinkling throughout the neighborhood. At this very moment I am looking out my window at a small strand of lights wrapped around a tiny potted tree on my porch and I can hear the story of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer playing in the background. This is my time-my moment.
