Welcoming a New Day with Dance

With Beauty
Good Morning Monday

Good Morning Monday
The coffee is ready
the warmth is beautiful
It is delicous to be wakening at home.

Sometimes a day at home is so darn good
you just revel in it, as I did on Sunday.
We spent the day just in
"chill" fashion
differntly than most would think of
as we took to the outside chores that were long
HItting the outside long neglected tasks
and the yard that made the ole' homeplace
look as no one had been home for awhile
or busy beyond measure.
I have to tell you I cannot remember the last
time I was so very present
in tasks that usually are not so enjoyable!
I was just tickled
to fire up that leaf blower
and for the longest time
enjoyed myself
as I blew those dreadful "Oak Leaves and stuff"
from the walkway, the driveway and hidden from all
over into an organized path and into the street.
No one to speak to, no one to offer suggestions to,
but only to direct to the street for
Mr Street Sweeper to get rid of this morning!
Then to the yard to rid ourselves of the annoying
and ever present soon to be
"Oak farm that is destroying the yard and grasses"
While I enjoy an old Oak tree or two,
how I have come to not like Oak trees in Florida
find them a nuicance here
wishing against wishes that this one
would transplant itself to another place
preferably Colorado where I have seen pictures
of acres of flat lands that would enjoythe mighty Oak in its splendor!
And I can't help but wonder;
why is it
that my home
is the only home
with Oak crap
all over the yard and little bitty Oak babies
taking over the yard and flower beds
and the screen top of my lanai.
of course
I still find my mind boggled that on a persons' own
you cannot take these trees down
without "permission" and without paying for
licenses, and without red tape
and such things...
So while the body aches from trying to do it all
in one day,
there is an immense sense of satisfaction
from doing so much in such a little amount of time
making things look so good
all though
the massive and irritating
big ole'
Oak is there laughing
"there is more aggravation to come"~

It was great to be out of the "head"
and into the movement of
just being for awhile
and stretching
and seeing the efforts of action
without words for the day
while feeling the warmth
of the day
Vitamin D
I have to tell you.

Fluidity of movement
the lovely immediate results of what had been done
just fine indeed.
As we approach the end of another month,
the energy and the light are changing,
the light months are returning to us,
spring is around the corner.
A time of new beginnings.
What an exciting time for us all.
Some are preparing for big and newness is all around.
New Beginings are always exciting if not a bit
scary it seems.
There are those who are preparing for moves
in jobs; in moves to new areas,
time to close out old business, to leave old relationships,
old areas, to walk away from old things that have not served you well or old things that you have "outgrown"
it is a time of transition I hear from many.
Perhaps that is really how the phrase
"spring cleaning" really first came about I wonder.
Cleaning out the old
to make room for the new?

I've been blessed to hear from many across the country since my return home from speaking, from meeting new people since the first of the year.
It has been an honor to meet so many.
Some have enjoyed the words they have heard; some have appreciated the reminders of things they knew already; others felt as though they have not heard anything they did not already know while others felt inspired by the words and yet others have wondered if I am free to engage in therapy from a distance.
Still others found points they wanted to challenge either there while the seminars were taking place
and they did so,
which opened the conversation
and I encouraged that,
then opened the floor
for others to respond to
allowing their peers to
give their responses
it was stimulating
and at times
it was
fiery as well!
One thing is certain
professionals in the caring professions for the most part are daggone good at what they do and most give all
to their patients and clients,
most sacrifice much
and their very own families often
should be the recipients of "awards"
as they often do with less
as those in the helping professsions
work long and hard
for those they are honored to work with.
I bet they too sometimes
welcome a day to
mow or blow leaves
seeing a
"beginning, middle and end"
to the task at hand!
One without human interraction or interruption
or crisis along the way.
Sometimes that is a great respite.
Blowing those leaves into the street
is rather mindless
you can take your time,
while it may make your back hurt after a bit,
it is a job of satisfaction when it is over
(unless the wind blows it back to you)
it is over!
No one asks for more
until the mighty Oak dumps on you that is!

then again
it is temporary, and it gets you out in the warmth, the sun, and for a moment, you can wear shorts and not really care what anyone thinks about you technique
and not have to answer to anyone but the blower!

Yes, life is filled with small and big surprises
and I find this morning to be a day of promises
a day
of knowing that many are facing small and big
I also know
we are approaching a new month
a month of
change for many.
A time of
New Beginnings
new promise
it is so very important
that we give the right messages
to our
learning to give
consistent messages to that wonderful
brain of ours.
Our brain loves consistency, so we must be
consistent in those messages
we must practice practice practice.
"I am grateful, I am thankful, I am doing my best"
We must remember:
"Whether you think you can,
Think you can't you will be right"

So friends
give yourself and your brain
so beautiful flowers
magnificent flowers
and thoughts to sustain
Plant yourself firmly on
the ground
and thoughts and messages
that will begin your day
with an
to start this day
with love, kindness
for the day
to make it what YOU want it to be.

You have the power to make it what you want
it to be.
Make it outstanding for yourself.
It is your choice.

Cuz Angie up there in Southwest Va
is healing each day from that serious abdominal surgery, and contnues to STOMP
with an attitude of gratitude
and so glad surgery is behind her.
Olivia in MD is walking on those little feet
now that her surgery and her
blessingswy with Kelly 2wolves
helped her to stand, and Nana was there
to encourage and love her through those first days along with the Mama
and those spirits who stood by her.
EE in Colorado is improving day by day
and has fought back from that horrible and rampant illness.
warriors on this page are
with the help and knowledge that they are
NOT alone
and that we here
are always with them.
This week we surround
LIzzie and her family up in Manassas VA
as they are under great times of stress there
we are with you dear ones,
we are standing strong with you there.
Kelly 2Wolves and Jinxy out in South Dakota have been so busy caring for all and sending prayers for all of us
that she is fighting a nasty cold
and still digging out from under the snows
she has been a bit under the weather,
we are with you darling
"arm in arm"
sending prayers your way
rest, restore and heal
knowing we are sending you
healing on the winds.

For those who serve
in Uniform
walk across the street if you have to,
take a minute
"thank them"
for their service
for protecting you and your families
for putting it on the line.
Tampa continues to mourn our losses
and we are still in shock
of those we have lost.

Life is like
Spiders Web
whatever is done to one is done to all
the web is fragile
and each thing affects all others in and on the web, and felt by the Universal Oneness
of the great connections.
You see my friends,
we may have been born into a family,
been born into circumstance
have lived through hell at one time or another
even perhaps been diagnosed and witnessed and gone through hell in life
perhas even gone through trauma.
it is what we have done, what we have worked through, resolved that matters.
It is what YOU have mastered
what you have done with those beliefs
that determine
"who you are"
"who you are and where you've been
is not who are where you are now"
you are different now
those old labels and conditions
may not be who you are now.
You may in fact not be able to call yourself those things any longer!
One who has resolved their trauma
is no longer "traumatized"
one who is no longer "abused"
is no longer a "victim of abuse"
they are a "survivor"
so it goes.
It is now
time to "leg go" of old labels
to adopt and embrace
who you are
and embrace
new belief systems
to give your brain consistent messages
and make your new beginning
new YOU
now and forever more.
Welcome to your
new LIFE
Congratulate yourelf
on work that has bee done
and know
from within.
enjoy your life.

Be gentle with yourself today
Be good to you,
kind to those you meet.
Kindess costs nothing
but gives so much
through a smile
a touch
through buying the person behind you at the drive-through a
or a coffee
just because you can do it
and then
glancing in the rear view at the reaction
will set the pace of the day
all day long!

If you make time for work
you must make time
for YOU

LIsten to music in the car dear ones,
after all
you already know traffic is jammed up
you are after all
sitting in traffic!
HOW much more do you really need to
know about that?
Think of good things
and give that time in your talk, in your head
at least give it more time than you give
the negative time or things that you hear
and join in conversations about!

of course remember this:
have enough
real friends
new experiences
ah ha moments
fun times
chocolate (fat free or sugar free)

The fire is burning, the embers are hot, the sage is fired up ... thoughts on the winds to all who gather here, and even those who somehow have missed this page!

Hello Oprah, Jay, Ellen??? Still waiting, did you get our book? wassup, time for Healing Heartaches dear ones? Hve your people call my people OK
