At the beginning of this month, I mentioned that I was working through the book The Magic by Rhonda Byrne with one of the groups I belong to. It took us 28 days, and in that time, I learned so many ways to nurture an attitude of gratitude. And I can tell you from experience that it really does create magic in one's life!
It's easy to feel gratitude when everything is going smoothly, when you're feeling good. It's a little more challenging to feel it, though, when you're feeling like crap and things just aren't going your way.
"I am here to tell you that the magic you once believed in is true, and it's the disillusioned adult perspective of life that is false. The magic of life is real - and it's as real as you are." ~ Rhonda Byrne

A Happy Monday morning to you, my friend. Did the weekend treat you well? I do hope so. What is on the agenda for today? For me, I’m focusing on self-care, on regaining my equilibrium, physically as well as spiritual. I am grateful that I am not as “out of whack” as I have been […]

Hello there, dear friend! This post is a little late being published. It’s been a really busy day here. I did want to pop in, though. (I haven’t forgotten about you! How could I? Yes! You’re that special to me and in general. *grins*) How has the energy felt for you lately? The past couple […]
Happy Tuesday to you! With the holiday weekend, here in the States, over, it’s time to get back to the “normal” schedule. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m participating in the Gentle Visibility Blogfest this week, and our “directive” is to publish a post today. Unfortunately, my brain has decided that it’s still on holiday. So, […]
Not too long ago, my family and I moved from rural Missouri to the suburbs of South Carolina. To say that it was a big change, would be an understatement. From a small town to of approximately 6,000 people to an area with a concentrated populace of 100s of thousands (at least). To be honest, […]
I just spent the past hour or so writing a new post. In a fraction of a second, I lost it. Just goes to show how unpracticed I am writing posts online and have forgotten one hard learned notion. ALWAYS copy your text before doing anything! That way, you’re able to paste it back into […]
