Sunday reflections (14)

Relaxing. Reading. Breathing. This is my day.

Lost in the written word of others. Someday I’ll finish the stories I need to tell.

We each have a story to tell. I’m reflecting on mine today.

Somedays one just needs to breathe. May your Sunday be as beautiful.

Sunday reflections (9)

It feels like spring again today! Waking up to the sunshine is such a positive way to rise. There is a hope that springs brings that is different than any other season. Promises of new, fresh and beautiful are on the horizon.

As I’m enjoying my quiet morning before the daily symphony of folks awaken, I’m reflecting on this statement:

Spring is the time for new. We have some exciting new changes and adventures we are planning and working on this spring. Can’t wait to see the fruit these produce.

Are you planning for new? Any beginnings coming your way? Watch for what may be coming, new life sprouts soon.

Have a fabulous day!

Friday’s Word (32)

Finally!  We have finally made it to the last letter in the alphabet!  There are so many words one could choose.  Language and vocabulary can be exciting to learn.  I have loved learning new words and highlighting some favorites along the way.

This seemed a great word for the last one.  Be zealous for this life!  To learn, to grow, to strike out on new adventures!  I want to always tackle this life with Zeal.

I hope you have enjoyed learning new words through out this series.  I have had a lot of fun creating posts based on a simple concept of learning.  As I wrap this up, I am busy thinking of the next topic to explore on Friday’s…stay tuned.

Have a fabulous day!

Friday’s word (31)

Good morning world. It’s early here in the Pacific Northwest. The typical rain is falling and my Friday begins. I’m enjoying the quiet as usual in the mornings. I should be at the gym but this puppy sitting at my feet had me up and down throughout the night, sleep was a challenge.

I was searching for the next letter in the alphabet and found this word. It’s Japanese and I’ll have to see if there is an English equivalent. But what a beautiful thought; to be so in touch, in sync with the universe that you deeply react to the beauty or perhaps even the despair. I’m not sure but I would think this word could apply either way. As long as you’re feeling a strong emotional response.

I’ve been in my Montana mountains or in the Tetons and felt this. I’m often moved by the beauty of the sunset. I’ve been known to pull over and take pictures. To stand and watch and just be in awe.

I hope you have some connection with the universe that you have moments of yugen. Look for it, it’s all around.

Have a fabulous Friday.

Friday’s word (30)

Today’s word is not only fun but brings a picture in my mind off my favorite places. The beach in Halewa, Hawaii. The Montana mountains. In a kayak watching the sunset. Just the thoughts of these places brings me peace and happiness.

I hope every one of you reading this has a place you think of when you read this word. Somewhere that brings you great contentment. That when you’re there all stresses melt away and you find joy. That is beautiful and you immediately smile upon just the thought of being there.

Picture your Xanadu today and have a fabulous Friday!

Sunday reflections (1)

Thinking to start the new year with a different title for Sunday writings. There will still be a self care focus but thinking Sundays may just be more of a reflection or quotes and randomness.

This morning as I’m lounging and slowly enjoying my Sunday morning, I happened upon this quote and it just made me smile.

Still love Prince after all these years! And as soon as I read these words I’m singing the song. A fun way to start my week.

Here’s to getting crazy and getting through life today. 😊
