Good New Day Beautiful Spirits!
This week has been a very trying week, to say the least. To put things in perspective, the Universe is tired of giving me “nice and sweet” messages and/or answers about what I am here to do or why I have not yet found my “bliss”. This week the Universe made a decision to “kick my A$% into action! Inspirational…yes! A bit painful…yes! Absolutely necessary…HECK YEAH!
I get it because even I am sick and tired of my wishy-washy-ness! One day I am driven and unstoppable, the next day I am unsure and frustrated. I prayed for help to understand what my next move is and this week it all became so very clear; albeit as a few face smacks but hey, I never asked for clarity to be soft and gentle. Come to think of it, during my prayer I asked, “Please help me understand what I must do to create the life I want and deserve; BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!” Sometimes, we get exactly what we ask for. *chuckles*
Are YOU paying attention and learning from your lessons? Taking action once you receive messages and/or answers requested? Don’t wait…there may never be a “right time” so just…GET ‘ER DONE!
I am not angry or sad, I am shaken-up but it the best way possible. Today I KNOW my strength. Today, I KNOW I have the tools to succeed doing the work I’ve been created to do. Today, I KNOW I’ve got this! Today, I vow to NEVER stop myself again. Today, I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS ABOUT WHO I AM OR WHAT I DO!
I am writing this as gratitude overwhelms my entire being because I needed this A$%-kicking like I need air to stay alive; my very life depended upon it.
Wishing you great Love, Peace and many Blessings,
Good New Day Beautiful Spirits!
This week’s Words of Wisdom is a quote submitted to me and it sure was right on time!
“Live your life without buts!” ~Olivia Smalls
Ms. Smalls’ quote reminds us that we are more than capable of creating and maintaining a life we truly enjoy.
A meaningful life by our own standards if we simply…
Stop making excuses.
Stop hesitating because of this or that.
Stop being afraid of what happens if this time doesn’t work out.
Stop awaiting support and validation from others.
Stop believing we may not be worthy of the life we want.
Re-write your script!
Let’s find out what happens when we…
Stop trying and simply take action…DO!
Be open to changing direction midway if necessary; quitting is NOT an option!
Leave past experiences behind us; this time IS different; we’ve grown so much since then.
Be our very own cheerleader!
Trust ourselves to get it done.
We are worthy of beautiful life experiences. Contrary to what “they” say, life is NOT meant to be difficult.
As always, sending you great Love, Peace & Blessings…
Why are people so offended if you say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? You cannot force your beliefs or traditions on anyone.
For the record, I do NOT celebrate Christmas; it’s become commercial and has little or any value as far as I am concerned. It’s no longer about faith, tradition and family; it’s all about material gifts.
Many cultures celebrate something around this time; just to name a few…
Pagan/Wiccan Community, Winter Solstice
Jewish Community, Hanukah
Mexican Community, Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe
I say Happy Holidays to honor all cultures and it’s my way of showing compassion and understanding for all people.
I for one cannot be bullied so if you are offended because I do not say Merry Christmas, that is YOUR issue not mine!
Happy Holidays and many Blessings to everyone!
May blessings of great love and peace overflow within and around you, always…
So I wonder…
Is it possible to teach someone who is used to being selfish, how to be considerate of others? Whether they are seemingly selfish because they had to grab what they could get growing up because they several brothers and sisters and financially the family struggled. Perhaps they have been overlooked too often and they’ve taught themselves how to make sure they get what they need and not consider others. Maybe, just maybe they seem selfish because they are always afraid of not having enough; this is a real illness you know, FEAR OF LACK.
Whatever the reason, there are some folks who lack the ability balance their needs along with considering needs of others. During an in-office holiday celebration today, there were people who did not get to enjoy the delicious food that was provided because some of the staff helped themselves to heaping plates; yes plates as in more than one! I watched in amazement because it seems like common sense and courtesy to me to take a bit to make sure everyone receives the blessing our Employer generously offered to us. Apparently common sense is not so common these days! *chuckles*
Is it possible to teach an office full of people the value in being considerate, compassionate, and to also practice the art of camaraderie? To show support for one another, to inspire and encourage? To work as a team in the truest sense of the word? To teach instead of belittle; to learn instead of turning away from challenges?
Is it possible to create a work culture fostering a thriving, energetic environment we can all benefit from?
I will ponder…hoping to come up with a “cure” to what ails the office and its inhabitants.
Sending you wishes of great Love, Peace and many Blessings…
Here’s my thing…
I am who I am; I will always be who I am.
If you are intimidated by my presence, deal with it because that my Dear One, is YOUR problem NOT mine! Accept me as I am because I am NOT changing for you. Being true to myself if the highest form of honor; perhaps you should try it too.
Never again will I dim my light.
Never again will I attempt to lessen my intelligence.
Never again will keep quiet so you can feel better about yourself.
I am NOT here to make you feel good (or bad) about who you are, that my Dear is YOUR responsibility; perhaps you should take it seriously.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your run; it’s over now!
Be mindful of how you approach me, I am kind, compassionate and helpful but if your intentions are less than honorable I promise to be your fiercest teacher.
As always, with a smile in my heart,
Love, Peace & Blessings…

This post is for all of my Beautiful Sisters and Brothers who may feel alone during the “Holiday Season” what call Family Time Season :-).
Please know you are NEVER alone!
I am a Lone Wolf by nature but sometimes even I feel alone. I am here to tell you to honor yourself, first , second, third and always…
If you feel like being around people, then go ahead and find some folks to have good time with and when you have had enough, remove yourself. You are not obligated to stay longer than you want to. If you decide you want to spend time with just yourself, do it! Enjoy your company, laugh, cry, rest…do whatever you feel like doing in the moment. Perhaps you are like me and want to do both; be with others for a while and spend time with just yourself for a while…do it!
Loneliness is a feeling occurring when we hold on to something or someone that was but will never be again.
I’ve taught myself to look forward to new experiences, new idea, new people…it helps me relieve the feeling of loneliness I used to carry with me way too often. Try it; teach yourself to look forward to what each New Day has to offer.
So during this time when it seems as though everyone has someone, remember you are YOUR most important someone; act accordingly!
Side Bar: Family is not about who you are linked to by blood; Family is a person or people who love, support, encourage and protect you no matter what circumstances may arise. Be with the person or people who make you feel loved BUT, only if you want to. 😉
To Beautiful Spirits reading this with an abundance of loved ones, please remember to reach out to those you know may not have the same.
To you all I wish many great blessings and peace during this Family Time Season.
Sending you my Love,
