Jingle all the way

I am one who still believes in the Spirit of Christmas. There is an underlying sense of joy, anticipation and excitement rippling through my days. With each donation and secret gift I give, I feel peace knowing I will bring some light and joy into someone’s life on Christmas. They will know someone does care.

finding joy

25 Sep

Do you experience joy everyday? 

I had a reiki treatment last week and the therapist told me I need to allow myself to experience more joy in my life. Her comment has been food for thought because I thought I was feeling joy in my life. 

This week I find myself asking, “What is my definition of joy?” Is joy an all encompassing feeling that fills me from head to toe with warmth and contentment? Is joy the smile that sweeps across my face when I find something touching or funny? Is joy the internal “ahhh” feeling I get when I take a sip of a really good latte or cup of coffee? 

What brings you joy? I’d love to have a discussion about this as I wonder how many people experience joy on a daily basis? 

 

motivation, where are you?

29 Jan

Today feels like one of those days. My to do list is full, kids are at school, no excuse to still be in my jams, but here I sit typing on my blog. I’ve checked my home email, Hotmail, Facebook, two job sites, read a few blogs and there are 5 other job sites to check. I highly doubt any jobs posted since last night at 10:00pm, but if I don’t look I will never know!

My chair is warm, my butt starting to go numb from sitting here for over an hour and I’d love a latte. If I had a bell I’d probably ring it for someone to get my vanilla latte remembering that I like it grande, solo, decaf, non-fat, half-sweet. Where is Mark (aka Taylor) my latte boy when I need him?!

Motivation is fleeting. Some days I have tons and other days it seems to be stuffed under a couch cushion, hiding in the closet or locked in the basement.  Perhaps if I call out I will find it running towards me along with my two dogs. Would be cool if it actually jumped up to give me a hug and a chin lick too!

Seriously though, I need to find it. There are things I’ve put off . I’m quite certain my Mother-in-law would appreciate her jams, new pants, socks, undies and sweater she left here at the beginning of January when she flew home. She’s either too polite to ask why we haven’t sent her things or it is possible she has forgotten.  I could of course leave this up to her son, however, she’d be picking them up this summer when she visits.

I’m going to do it! I will visualize myself crossing items off my to do list. I will sign off my blog, make my own latte and head upstairs to the say good morning to the guinea pigs. Of course none of that is on my list, but I’ll have a little caffeine kick as I watch Ginger & Cookie do their dance of joy.

Words are powerful and can be used to heal or harm. I believe in using my powers for good. Compassion, celebration of Gaia and our shared humanity, random kindness, the wonder of the human spirit, the poetry of empathy, all inspire me daily.
