Question not your being,
question not your strife.
Quest only with adventures
your eternal life.
“Electric word – life. It means forever and that’s a mighty long time.” ~ Prince
We get so wrapped up in life we forget it is as simple as we wish it to be. There will be both sadness and happiness, good things and bad things happening in our lives. But we decide how each will ultimately affect us.
As the New Year approaches, think of yourself as a vessel filled with potential (because it is). Think not of your disappointments (though they are there) think of your successes (they are there too.)
I am that I am
no more, no less than it seems
I live, I love, I am

I encourage you to consider the raw capability you have inside you. You’ve but to activate it, through your creative process of positive thinking and determination.
And one more thing …
“The complexity of life decreases when balanced with thoughtful consideration and action.” ~ P
A most excellent and wonderful New Year to you,
Difficult to imagine there might be a key to one’s heart. Yet there is a special “something” inside each of us we keep safe, waiting for the moment when we can fully bloom and come alive. Love is the key. And whether it be love of one special person, or the love of life (and living it) as a whole, it will be love that completely unlocks a person to their full potential!
The Unlocked Heart
The beat, heart’s rhythm waits for the key
to unlock our hearts so love can roam free.
A heart filled with love blossoms and grows.
Life filled with love, everyone knows
Is the key to happiness …
because it shows.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope your heart is filled with love and you are having an excellent weekend,
“The essence of existence is to live fully – savor the flavors of life.
The essence of life is to move ever forward – hold love in your heart, but be bold and creative.
The essence of love is to partake and give fully – be passionate in your endeavors.
… It is a wise individual who does not confuse the ‘essences’ with the ‘processes’.”
In other words, live and love fully, but let go of that which would hold you back from being true to yourself.

If I were to ask you is there really a forever …?
Would you think about it? Would you dismiss it as just a silly question with no definitive answer?
It is one of those pondering type of questions I think. I’m guessing most of us would put the word “forever” in a category of “a real long time plus a little longer where we can’t see the end” sort of understanding.
But just pretend for a minute that your mind can stretch itself out to eternity and travel …”to infinity and beyond“… where would it go and what would you see and experience? If you are seriously thinking about this then you are using the finest mode of transportation you have. Your IMAGINATION.
Forever and a Day
I think forever will always be
So the quest I do instead,
Is what I’d do with the extra day
Explore or stay ‘abed
Whispering breezes far afield
Twinkling star lit night,
worlds without end cannot be seen
the vistas out of sight
dewdrops in the morning
mother nature’s misty breath
The question … says Hamlet!
Visualizing the “forever” of things can be a difficult.
How wonderful for us that we each possess the greatest method of visualizing ever. Our Imagination.
Imagine Forever …
The perfect vehicle for exploring your thoughts about things – like the question of forever. Take yours for a spin today, because like all good things, use it or you’ll lose it!
Don’t you feel that sometimes life is like playing a game. And it can be especially difficult when you feel like you’re missing part of what you need in order to play the game well.
However, I like to think that for us ‘creative types’, we compensate for our game playing shortcomings with a most magnificent imagination. Changing (in our minds) the game more to our liking.
At least part of the time. As needed. Upon occasion. Every now and then. (Okay, sometimes more than we should!)
So stay creative, my friends. Keep your imagination alive and well. After all its what kids do best when they’re playing games. It works well for them!
Have a good day and better tomorrow,
There’s a whole wonderful world out there, just waiting for you to discover!
Come out into the sun! Embrace and explore your life, your world
is waiting for you!
“The warmth of the sun can’t shine down upon you,
or light your way,
if you stay hidden in the shadows!”

Have a great day today everyone, and a better tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by,

Hi everyone, I won’t be on line as much and will be publishing fewer blogs for a while. All’s well, just a few things to do that will keep me busy, a few projects and setting up a new routine for a much busier schedule!
I will be visiting, as I can however, in the meantime take care of you and I’ll be back soonest.
Much love to everyone,
Sitting outside in the back yard this morning (6 a.m. – Northwestern America time), taste buds waking up to rich flavors of fresh brewed coffee, I thought about all the things to accomplish today. It would have been a simple matter, adding these up in my head, to head to a negative place, but instead, I stretched, played with the dog, took the trash out, (garbage collection day) reminded myself what I had to be grateful for and decided I was happy to begin my new day! Good Morning World!
~ Have a good day today,

Today I will think beautiful thoughts
~ beginning with you.
You’ve become a part of my daily habit now,
my routine in life, my “fix” to help cope with reality,
my connection to the inner me and the inner you.
It’s glorious to know you’re out there, sharing with me.
Thank you my blogging friends, all so dear and special to me
You know that feeling I’m talking about, when you go online and connect with others.
May your day be a beautiful one, blessed and full.
The sun is shining and the sky is blue,
a cool morning, though I know another hot day is on the way.
Right now, in the moment, it is gorgeous and beautiful.
It is a new day, yesterday has passed,
many surprises and unknowns may await me.
Some good some bad,
some ordinary, some unusual. It’s a new day after all.
Good morning my beautiful world,
I welcome you … and the new day
with a loving kiss,
and open arms!
