Pink Poetry

roses1

I am the pink rose, scorned, tired.

I bloomed in youth

Perfumed the air with my fire

burst in proud glory

s  p  a  r  k  l  i  n  g

shining my soul unabashedly.

But the sun scorched my soul

clouds refused me rain.

w i t h e r i n g

I remain pink, soft, fragrant

in my soul where I reside.

Shine On!

Rebuild Your Life

poster
How to Begin:
Rebuilding Life from Within
Love yourself, unconditionally.
Release your bottled up emotions.
Make time for long walks, alone.
Avoid living beyond your means.
Nurture your inner strength.
Stop apologizing for being you.
Surround yourself with positive people
Embrace your situation, whatever it may be.

~ Dr. David Jockers on FB

Someone ‘liked’ this, so it came in my FB newsfeed yesterday.  Perhaps this will help someone today.

I thought it was timely for myself as well.

Shine On!

Relax, it’s Monday!

35375_Normally we rev up for the work week ahead.  But today I think we should take different view.  Let’s relax into the week.  Attend to our obligations.  But also attend to our well-being, our souls and spirits.  Make a significant focus on improving your health ~ be kind and be loving to yourself this week more than usual.  Take a few extra minutes to relax, allow your brain to wander, look up at the sky and look around at the glorious gifts of nature which surround you daily.

Why wait until the weekend to relax?

You have today, now.  Enjoy it.

Love yourself.  Put your arms around yourself and hug away!  You are loved.  You are love.

Happy week ahead!

Shine On!

Lift Your Heart

36337107_What Lifts Your Heart?

Valentine’s Day evokes thoughts of love, happy anticipation of cards, flowers and candy sent and received.  But without the commercialism tied to Valentine’s Day, it’s simply the 14th of February.  If you haven’t a Valentine to share the day with, then what do you do?  Ask yourself, when you strip away the fluff of the holiday, what’s left?

Love.  Gratitude.  Presence.

What lifts your heart?  Do you know?  What makes you happy?  Who do you love?  What do you love to do?  What and who brings incredible joy and love and laughter in your life?  How does your heart swell with love, gratitude and presence?  Do you know how to lift your heart?

It requires a bit of self-discovery if the questions above weren’t easily answered by you.  But I believe that this Valentine’s Day, the love should be in your heart for you as well as for others.  A Valentine’s gift to yourself ~ pamper yourself by spending some precious time with someone who lifts your heart ~ YOU!

Write yourself a list of what you enjoy doing, what you love, and what swells and lifts your heart.  Is it the joy of cooking?  Is it the smell of recently mowed grass?  Is it watching snow fall gently to the Earth?  Is it creating and singing  beautiful music?  Is it the warmth of sunshine on your face?  Is it in the melody of laughter?  Is it in fur therapy ~ the love and bonding with a pet?  Is it in the bonding with your family and loved ones?  Or is it simply in awakening at dawn to a new day full of possibility?

Write your list of 10 ~ and enjoy a few of those precious gifts with yourself.  Share your love with your own heart and then let your love be shared with others.

As we’ve heard before in a song, “Love the one you’re with” and that’s ALWAYS YOU!

Shine On!

Tired of Starting Over?

“If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up.” – Unknown

I read some statistics the other day which said:

* 80% of people bail on their New Year’s Resolutions by the end of week 2

 * 98% of people bail on their New Year’s Resolutions by the end of week 4

 

So the key question is: Will you be part of the 2%?

Please answer YES!

Shine On!
