Took a Stand Today

Took a Stand Today

Because this is so honest, it’s fear-making to share it….but I’m putting it out there anyway. Because I want to encourage you, too, to listen to your wants, your boundaries, your comfort, your fears, your rules good and bad. Listen to them, figure out where and what they are and where they are coming from. And don’t be afraid to take a stand; hold your boundaries, gently say ‘no’ (or maybe the right ‘yes’!), explain what you believe, say what you think, be honest (speak the truth in love…)

And keep on walking.

Yiritol

A precious gifting of time, art, and sheer essential wisdom from my on-the-cusp-of-ten daughter. Yes, I cuddled her up and smiled at her through tears, and we touched each other’s face tenderly and absorbed the loving energy.

Can you, too, take this message for yourself – I know she wants to share it – today, this evening, now? Take that encouragement and affirmation for yourself, hold and enjoy it.

YOU can do it. I love you. You ARE lovely, unique, beautiful, special, and surely on the road to greatness! Don’t forget to take time to Rest (it’s a good idea).

YIRITOL – why not share it with another woman, too?

Among the Trees

Among the Trees – with thanks to Mary Oliver, whose first line became my last in this homage poem. I am currently taking a Bach custom essence of Oak, Pine, Walnut, and White Chestnut, which I find inspiring and strengthening; I am also spending as much time outside to refresh my soul as I can manage. Gratitude for the spirit of trees!
