Almost time to be an adult again!…..almost.

It has been such a nice summer! Drinking, playing with friends, child-like activities spread throughout my weeks….. ahhh….. what a life! Realizing that in just 2 weeks my beautiful children will have to return to their normal fall through spring school activities makes me feel a tad sad. Not “I think I am going to cry” sad, but more of the “wow, I really enjoyed the last few months and it’s time for change” kind of sad. I will miss the relaxed schedules and bare feet. And I will for sure miss being able to say “Sure we can stay up and have another drink, we don’t have to be any where in the morning!” Just like when I was a kid.

So, what makes this summer different then past summers, as an adult? Well, I am pretty sure it has everything to do with embracing my personal power of life control mind-set. Another words, using what I have learned to take control and enjoy my moments no matter what they may be! I have found the secret to happiness! It involves relaxing my mind, body and spirit to a level of LOVE. It involves realizing that I need not take on the worries of others and just go with what feels “good and right” even if it’s just for that moment! Did I let some things GO? yes, I sure did. Like a couple of jobs that were making me feel anxiety. I let go blogging for a few weeks at a time (and NOT feel bad about it), there was also another computer job project that I was trying to do just for the sake of money, it was really stressing me out, so let it go – I did! I switched up priorities to ones that made more sense for me and gave me a feeling of “fun” (and calm stomach!) Therefore my summer has felt more child-like, more FUN! Did a few things get pushed aside like house work or yard work? For sure, however, it’s still there and had I pushed too hard to be all and do all, I wouldn’t be writing this right now. It will all get done (and I didn’t lose any friends over the lack of finished projects either!) The kids will be at school for most of the day soon, and I will feel comfortable completing the unfinished whatever… We don’t have anyone to impress but our selves. And as long as we love and respect our decisions, more impressive situations will occur! Trying to LIVE IN THE MOMENT is the way of a child. It’s a feeling of freedom and joy. It makes your path clearer and your experiences fuller! Live like a child today, you will be happy that you did!!  Best wishes always… until next time….

Hmmmm….

I have been so very, very busy lately that I haven’t had time to write as often as I normally like. Ahhh, summer. Children home demanding attention and the house looks like a huge frat party was held all night. Many jobs still to do, however, life is good, filled with energy and emotions and that is what ‘life’ is. That’s why we are here. So, on to the next moment in time……..

Today I wanted to mention how sometimes we forget to DREAM. We get so caught up in the stress of the moment that we simply put off what it is that we ‘want’, for what we are now having. Does this make sense? I know how important it is to live in the time of the now, however if we are doing that in a negative sense, we do not take time for growth. We become stagnant…. and muddy. Our thoughts are not clear and therefore we do not get any clear results. So where is the balance of not giving up on the things (dreams) that we want to accomplish (with family, friends and materials) and living in the moment? Because we need to live in the moment to appreciate what we have given ourselves so far and still see movement and growth for our future experiences.

We have to be careful to really expect what ever it is that we ‘want’ and not just want and hope for it from a place that says “I don’t have it but I really want it” because when we do this, it keeps it away from us. When we want something so very intensely and feel the feelings of ‘lack’, we end up just creating that same image out there to the universe – the feelings of ‘lack’. If we want something, whether it is a relationship or material item, we have to look forward to it and admire those around us whom already have it. (Oh, the green-eyed monster is the worse!! I will talk about that in my next post.)

Okay, so balance is key, as usual. Keep your dreams close and refresh them regularly, but at the same time enjoy your ‘now’ moments with gratitude and love. Keep intentions clear and positive with high energy and before you know it, YOUR DREAMS ‘ARE’ YOUR ‘NOW’ MOMENTS, ALL THE TIME! Until next time…

From the heart,
