Stand Still

Stop, where ever you are, just stop, and stand still.  Close your eyes, take a deep breath and become aware of what’s happening.  Let yourself stop thinking.

You are never more essentially, more deeply, yourself than when you are still – Eckhert Tolle

To Grey or not to Grey

I’m conflicted about this.  Why does grey hair get such a bad rap, especially for women?  Half of me wants to let the natural grey shine through and the other half of me wants to keep it hidden.  My natural color isn’t even grey, it’s white.  I have white hair, like half my head is white, why do I keep trying to deny it’s shimmery splendor?

Happiness Vs. Anger

img_2351I don’t know if this is a proven fact but it should be.  What does anger really do for us?  Think about that ’cause laughter is what really  make us feel better!

I stumbled across this quote scrolling through Pinterest,  I probably spend too much time there but I was looking for ideas to make a diaper cake for my niece.  Anyway, this quote just struck me like a 2×4 across the head.

How does 60 seconds have such a powerful effect on us? Continue reading “Happiness Vs. Anger”

Am I Old Fashioned or Just Old?

‘Twas the Night of Thanksgiving

‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t sleep…

I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned…the dark meat and white, but I fought the temptation with all of my might.

Tossing and turning with anticipation, the thought of a snack became infatuation.

So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes, stuffing with gravy, green beans and tomatoes.

If felt myself swelling so plump and so round, till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky with a mouth full of pudding and a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees…

Happy eating to all–pass the alka seltzer please!



Inner Peace

Is this easy for some people?  What kinda magic do I need to master to make this happen?  Seems like it would be easy to achieve, right??  Outside circumstances and even my own thoughts screw me up on this. Continue reading “Inner Peace”
