Just in case you need evidence that I actually do what I say I do, I could actually post a copy of my books from my ninety day programmes and my affirmations and experiences for the week. What do you mean, they could have anything in them…that’s not a nice thought! Understanding your awesomeness by knowing yourself A ninety day programme of journalling and affirmations is about knowing yourself. You get to see yourself on every page you’ve written and there are times when I pick one of them up and look over it and I think…well that’s a load of rubbish, but every now and then there’s a little gem, something so profound I wonder how it could come from me! By knowing yourself, I don’t mean knowing your likes or dislikes or your goals or weaknesses and strengths. It’s coming into the realization that you are an amazing being.…

I’m a chameleon.  I discovered this as a kid when I used to morph into the person I spent the most time with, much to the horror of my parents, since I didn’t always hang out with kids they approved of.  They much preferred it when I morphed into the character from a good book.  They weren’t always thrilled that I picked up patterns of speech at the drop of a hat either, and seemed pleased when I learned to rein in my chameleon like qualities. But still they linger.  You might wonder why I mention this.  Mostly it’s because lately I’ve  morphed into a listamaniac, from somewhere.  I have little post it notes all over the house and I even popped one on my darling one’s desk…just trying to be helpful.  Not too certain he sees it quite like that. And here I am writing yet another list…sorry about…

It wasn’t a good day.  I must have been in my diva state of mind.  I felt…out of sorts…discombobulated even and I wasn’t having any fun. I can’t be bothered to use the law of consciousness I said to my darling one.  It’s too much trouble. He didn’t laugh derisively as he could have…he smiled and said you’re cute. And gave me a kiss. I felt encouraged. I can’t be bothered to use the law I said to my friend. Oh, you, she snorted, you love this stuff. I was encouraged. I can’t be bothered to use the law I said to these two. They looked at me blankly…before declaring, don’t worry, you’re doing your best. I was encouraged. I received a text from a friend. Reflections are persistent teachers. Cool isn’t it I told him. Yes and no…sometimes school just ‘aint fun. I just love the adventure of it…

Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power. ~ Seneca It was cold and icy, with small snow flurries and the roads were treacherous and the traffic slow.  I was eighteen and had just got my driver’s licence. Across the pond, we don’t get to drive at sixteen.  Who’d have thunk it. And then it happened. Sitting, minding my own business in a traffic jam, wham, bang, I was hit from behind, propelling me into the car in front and the next car piled into the next…the domino effect took over. There were twelve of us in this particular melee.  Thankfully no-one was hurt, mainly because we were mostly stationary or creeping along.  But when it was all over, my car was dented and I went home to vent about stupid, idiot drivers. The cure-all My Mum made me a nice cup of tea.  It’s what we…

Everything that exists is in a manner the seed of that which will be. ~ Marcus Aurelius My English grandma’s house backed onto a farm.  Did I never mention that I was multicultural?  Yep English father, Scottish mother. The house and the farm were separated by a muddy pathway and a typically British drystone wall a la: My grandma lived in Yorkshire.  Totally irrelevant of course, but it gives me an excuse to share this photo ‘cos I like it.  For anyone interested in geography, this is York on a very English summer day.  It’s still pretty to me, mist and all. Meanwhile, back at the farm, farmer Brown is leaning on a gatepost overlooking his freshly ploughed field as we walked by. “I’m expecting a great crop of corn this year” he said to no-one in particular. Grandma said that this was wonderful and when did he plant…
