Rae, as you complete one anniversary  with the Fly Tribe and a beautiful new year starts with your own e-course, pure joy fills my heart for you and for all of us participating in your TOUCH THE MOON  course!

We all  know how some movies touch us to the very core, and many times the reason is that we dream  to live some aspect  of that story for our selves, or we are inspired to dream and live such lives or we know someone personally that have obtained their dreams and can relate totally.

Two movie’s that come to mind for me is Pay it forward” and “Avatar“. A friend recommended that I watch Pay it forward, she said I reminded her of that movie in my actions.. what a compliment.  I only watched avatar because my hubby had wanted to, but that movie stirred so many emotions in me, too many to mention, that it is in our movie collection.

The reason I mention these movies, is because too many times to count, many of us know that Rachel continually pays it forward for all of us. She shares her heart and soul with us with all that she has learned, thus we are better souls for her sharing with us.

Pay it Forward (2000)

The movie “Avatar” and the story of how through learning and experiencing other forms of art(another world) and exposing  oneself to other artistic souls(avatars) and embracing the differences in each of us(our personalities).       The imagine and creativity of the colors of this “other world” was breathtaking and beautiful, at least to me. Rae is always creating and imagining cool ways to achieve bliss in her journey.  

Rachel captured it when she said ” I see You” …. she truly does see  each and every one of us and accepts us 100% as our we are.  Yet she will be the 1st to encourage us if we so desire to seek what we want out of life and  to be more authentic with ourselves. 

AvatarI encourage anyone that has just even a twinge of desire to find that creative spark to give her course a try, I feel very confident that we will all learn so much about ourselves and even what direction we want to go artistically.

Love Light & Laughter ~ Rosemary

Rene  @  happilyeverafter by Renee Burke  who is hosting  SumMEer of Me asked if would mind sharing how much the SumMEr of Me  community postings have touched  and encouraged me this summer. 
 I can say without any hesitation that part of my SELF -CARE has been to take the time to reach each one of these wonderful guest-Artist postings. Each one approaches self-care a bit different and yet the common thread is so strong throughout all of them.. TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES. Many of us  still need to truely learn to nurture ourselves without guilt of any kind.
As for being an artist~ If capturing moments in time with a camera count then I am all in~ The longing  to do more with my pictures  continues to motivate me each day.
One of the 1st things I did this summer was to make a “SumMEr of ME”  list ( with a gentle nudge from  Jamie Burch’s post: just a few of the goodies on that list.
  • Spend less time cleaning house and more time doing the things I wanta !!
  • Improve on my time management
  • Keep my promise to myself to keep up with my weekly/daily blog posts ~ as I have 2 websites and 3 different blogs ~
  • work on “The Invitation” in relation to my life

The following will no doubt be an awesome wind down from summer in the best of ways.

  •  I am so excited to do this one… I just about cried happy tears down my legs when I read about this e-course. LOL. Touch the Moon will kick off  August 27 (a few days before the Blue Moon) and go through Wednesday, October 31st (Halloween, a few days after October’s full moon).   This has to be one of the most truly creative and loving souls in this universe. I could do a whole posting  just on Her contributions to my life being ” a dream come true”  You know her as Rachél Payne of  collectingyourself .

Re-birth posting help a light bulb come one that I have and do tend to tie my self worth into what I am doing for others.

 Just love this expression “when lit from within~ you can light up the world up”      Kajal Dhabalia   did her posting  on  self-care   a fire did light within.

I too have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease this summer.  As I read her plan, I was so proud that she has already made a plan to keep it in check. In my mind I was saying those things but she has already put them on a list and actually doing them.   Alot of my summer Time has been spent waiting to get a  complete picture of what is going on with my thyroid if there are any other possible “hot/cold” spots in my body. I had made a commitment to myself that I would start a blog about this Journey not knowing exactly where it would take me.  I was so encourgaged by her post  yesterday that I have asked her if I could post  a link to it on my website Finding1selfs thyroid journey.

I continue to look foward to each new post of  SumMEr of ME… When we share we just never know who or when it can make all the difference in the world.

Good afternoon to jamie all at Wishcasting Wednesdays! First let us all cool off by enjoying this picture, LOL.

 As I sat here thinking about this question, it was one of those Ahh Haa moments:

I am sharing what I would like to, that being my experiences through blogging and pictures.  I have shared several times that I  am the happiest when I can share any of my experiences even the rough ones with others to either give them a laugh or to maybe stumble a little less when  a pot hole shows up  in our daily journey. We have enough of them all on our own.

So my wish is that each one of you either from Wishcasting Wednesdays or other sources know that I am grateful each time you drop by  to see and share with me your  experiences and wishes as well.

 

 

If anything was possible what would My wish be for? How many people in your family and friends circles are truely healthy and not fighting something? For me  my wish if possible  “would have to be for everyone to have their health”. I have come to realize in a very profound level that when one has their health they may not know it but they really do have a priceless gift and are more often to lead the life they want to. By this I am referring to those words like “choice or free will”. When we find ourselves with limitations due to health issues, those in turn many times can/do change the type of choices we make. How many people do we know that don’t change jobs because of a pre-existing condition that may not be covered by another insurance company. Don’t get out bad relationships , or don’t feel they could make a major move do to a lapse in coverage  or specialist etc.   I know many of our ailments are due to poor decisions we have made or making still making that contribute to them, but those aren’t really the ones I am referring to.  I also know that many of us have diseases because of the dis-ease that is in our daily lives and many of those we can reverse some of the damage once they are diagnosed and dealt with.  But the diseases that are not reversible and continue to affect ones life nearly day in and day out.

If this wish  to allow all of us our best health possible, to come true… How drastic of a life change would this make on the earth…  What would that do to the medical industry and all the other professions that count on them.   Around here we have  coined the term “mexican restaurant at nearly every corner”  the same can just about be said  for new medical buildings.  We have to ask ourselves were is all of this sickness coming from?  Even when we are trying to make good choices about our health there sure seems to be some elements that are out of our control or that we are not aware of as of yet. If our bodies were healthy then I am sure our world would reflect the same health to a larger degree.

Jamie thank you once again for giving us such a wonderful subject in which to wish up!

 

 

It would be Wednesday evening but it’s still Wednesday and Jamie asks what does our heart wish for? I  simply wish that my heart  can always give unconditional love  and understanding for others. My heart aches for souls that are lost and empty, when I see them hurting and bitter about things that may have been misunderstood by others or themselves or just not understood period. My Wish is that their hearts heal with stitches of love. One of my many heart blessings is that know I am whole heartedly loved by many by choice

This post may be one of many ramblings but hopefully I can share all of the beauty that Serendipity and Synchronicity play in my daily life. I am sharing these events to cement my sincere appreciation  and gratitude for being acknowledged as an inspirer .

This beautiful nomination came from Rachél  and her beautiful blog The Art of  Collecting Yourself . She in fact was the one that encouraged and inspired me to start a blog. Her patience and gentle guidance has helped me to Journal as I Journey through life. Along this path I have really come to know my voice and a better understanding  and trust my inner compass.  From the one Blog I now have 3 different blogs and a website that I so enjoy participating in.

The rules for receiving “the very inspiring blogger award” are tell seven random things about yourself, thank the person who has awarded you for this award by linking back to them and pass the award over to other bloggers and let them know you’ve awarded them.

Here are my ramblings:

1st Random ramblingI really enjoy Hallmark movies, the kind that make you cry and say afterwards “Thank you Universe for all the blessings in my life”

2nd Random rambling: I enjoy cool/cold weather with hot teas and toddies. It’s all good stuff.

Now the true Beauty of this award is that it allows me to extend this gift  and fits right in line with my desire  to “pay it forward” and “Plant a Kiss” . I So enjoy doing for others in a sincere and meaningful way… this is the ticket for me!

My personal belief is that everyone that has ever come into my life had purpose in my life… a lesson either for me or for them… and creating friendships and discovering what makes those friendships special is down right fun!

Here a just a some of the blogs that have helped me  stay on finding1sself ‘s path and give me food for thought as well.

Pull up a toadstool:  Tracy and I connected Immediately.  She is so open and sincere about helping others. She doesn’t worry about being politically correct or doesn’t try to sugar coat the hard truth when it needs to be put out in the universe. She is younger than me  and yet she is wise and true to herself and I respect that in a person.

 Awakened Living   : Janice Lynne Lundy has a way of  presenting  a bead of wisdom  in which to live our daily lives by and breaks them down with suggestions to applying them to our inner work. I can always count on these beads to calm me right down.

Powered by Intuition :  I found Angela Artemis blog about strengthening our Intuition to be very beneficial in which she gives lessons to do to reinforce and know when our intuition is speaking to us.  

I would be amis if I didn’t mention  Wishcasting Wednesday Jamie Ridler presents a promt each Wednesday to us that allows us to search deep within ourselves to find what our inner wishes are and to act on them for sucesses in every aspect of our lives.  I know she has had a hand in countless  soul journeys for so many.   You will find 20+ other beautiful souls there that participate in Wishcasting Wednesday on a regular basis and I encourge you to check it out.

I wish to go to a higher level of  humor and sustained mental & physical energy, Opps, did I forget to mention patienece too!!
Personally I have had a full week and it is only Wednesday . After reading, I do hope you see where my wish is coming from… the heart honestly.

I promise there is a sense of humor in here somewhere…  Really glad Jamie didn’t ask ” where would you want to tell someone where to go today”

 

Monday we had some of the worst weather for our area that I have seen other than in Hurricanes in 40 years or so. No Less than 17 Warnings for either Severe Storms, tornadoes and Flash Flooding, etc and that was all before noon.

I watched drivers do some seriously crazy things because they were panicking and not realizing that you can’t always just keep going no matter the circumstances. 

Are Other countries wound up  as tight as the U.S.A. about getting to work no matter the price? Many are told to get to work, doing what ever it takes not taking  into account their employee’s safety or their own. Common Sense has been lost somewhere!

 As a trained weather spotter, I  too, was terrified on the roads while going to work I was also looking for drivers in trouble, flooded roads, and aah yes and looking for occasional  funnel clouds, and damaged property too. 

 Many of you may have heard the saying ” Don’t drown, turn around!”  That works on 2 way street, maybe…. But one way exits and feeder roads -NOT!!There were way too many cars that had no way to turn around once they realized that the streets that were flooded. I kid you not, there are Tire trenches going straight  up & down from overpasses where drivers thought if they could  just  go another way it surely was better than where they were, Wrong!   

We all, me included, have  picked at the weather personality some time or another for getting it wrong. But in all honesty… if you talk to a meteorologist, there was probably  a very serious weather event in their life, that caused them to pursue weather, their dedication is driven by their conviction  to hopefully save lives and minimize injuries and physical damage.  They are a kind of Pre-emergency medical technicians of sorts. They try to prepare you so that an emergency or accident doesn’t happen to you because of weather conditions. Ok enough about Monday. 
Tuesday was filled  a mixture of anticipation and  so anxixity  about meeting my husbands Hematologist/oncologist. Another round of  blood work before a treatment plan can be established. 15 tests and hopefully we should have some answers. So the lab was called and oh yes we can take you right in for those. Drive 20 miles to be told, oops can’t do it today will need to come back 1st thing in the am around 6:45 am.

Wednesday  so another 20 miles for hubby to drive this morning.  9  vials of blood taken and then… Oops we can’t do 2 of these tests, you will need to drive on in to the big city for those two tests, another 12 miles or so. Gets another 2 vials drawn and heads back to work 34  miles back to work… gets to work and the hospital calls and says… Opps we didn’t get enough blood, so yep you guessed it another 35 miles back to the big city for 2 more vials drawn… keeping in mind that hubby’s platelet count is very low and high risk of bleeding, but opps what the heck lets just keep sticking him over and over, Opps!

Many of you know  Rae by her beautiful personality and contagious smile of hers. Through her blogs she has been encouraging us to make sure do our  “self  care &  self  love”.   She is living her dream through lots of hard work and determination.  Each day she does her studies to stay focused and allows her path to unfold with a gentle wish here or there and dedicates her blogs to the universe so that her dream will manifest.

                                           The Art of Collecting Yourself

Her blogs and creations  flow so eloquently. Have had a chance to check out her creativity tribe   on Facebook?

Each piece of her art is from cultivating and nurturing  creative hearts, hers and ours.

Check out this beautiful set she created knowing my favorite colors and style. I am so proud  to be the wearer of such beautiful art.  OH and the energy I receive when I am wearing them well that is unexplainable but trust me it is wonderful. Here is another beautiful piece she did.  She is looking forward to the launch of her Etsey store opening up soon where we will all be able to see many many facets of her art, So looking forward to that for her as well.  

Remember that you too can dream and make those dreams come true, so hang in there and keep plotting your path to your successes as well.

Fierce, a word that isn’t in my vocabulary… So I looked it up to see what all the different intentions could be for this word: 

fierce/fi(ə)rs/ 

  • Having or displaying an intense or ferocious aggressiveness.
  • (of a feeling, emotion, or action) Showing a heartfelt and powerful intensity
 So now as I focus on the Heartfelt intensity meaning of this word… I am a bit  better with it… I realize that I use the word passionate  in its place. Even when describing someone who is aggressive when trying to make their point good or bad.
Looking back at times that I have been pretty fierce about matters… it is always about someones well-being, physically or mental. I pray I will always be that way, I don’t want to lose that with age. There is an invisible thread that connects me to  those in my life and when they hurt I hurt deeply. I guess I can be a bit fierce about letting them know that want to comfort and make sure they know I am available even if it is just to talk.
Jamie from Wishcasting Wednesday, thank you for letting me see this part of me a little clearer.

         Jamie Ridler  asks us about  what we want time  for this week. Once again incredible timely for me, no pun intended LOL. Time and what I do with it is still a struggle for me… I sent goals to section my time out and still I fail at doing all the things I want to do in a day.  As someone who can be OCD about housekeeping and doing many of the things that I feel I need to on a regular basis….find myself with too little  time and very little energy.

This past week has been rather busy mentally with what started out with serendipitous events that played out synchronicity left and right with a very strong lesson on Intitution as well.  If you would like to read about that please see the previous two posts regarding these events.  

As I have been contemplating these events and realizing how close (3 finger widths from hitting the highway divider Friday Morning) I came to possibly not having any more time  here to play more,  Time is incredibly precious to me.  If there is still another message I am to receive from all of those events last week from the universe I am hopeful it is revealed soon and timely.

By sharing this tidbit I hope it will bring a laugh to your soul. I did keep a promise Friday to a dear friend and blogger, that if it rained I would do some kind of happy dance.. as it turned out.. while we were having lunch together it began to rain…so I did my rain dance of gradatude, I am sure it looked more like the chicken dance than anything… but we laughed so hard until we almost cried. Timing is everything!

originally I was going to wish that we all take a time to thank someone in our lives for inspiring us… but then I went “da”  that is what Wishcasting Wednesdays is all about… So I personally want to thank all of you Wonderful Wednesday Wishcasters that take time to stop by and wish with me as I do with you.

My personal wish this week  is to make a list of the things I want to do with my “free” time and reevaluate them. I know that following many of you and your blogs have become even more important to me in the past year. As well as, my love for capturing & understanding  our universe better through my photographs and chosing to be outside more.
