Happy Valentine’s day to my beloved Life! I am so grateful for the gift of Life. I painted this picture this morning showing how I ‘feel’. I feel like my heart is going to burst with happiness.
Every morning when I wake up I am thankful for yet another day on earth where I get a chance to use my heart and to project love out to the entire planet. I know that it starts with myself and I have gotten better at loving myself too. I do my best to do what I can too to help others to love themselves. I know that when we all are full of our own love, it can’t help but spill out onto the rest of the world. 🙂
What else am I grateful for today oh lovely life of mine? I am grateful for the gift of Life itself itself where I can be childlike and paint pictures like this and I get to express myself as a creator. I know I can create pictures and use colors and my imagination. It is so thrilling! And guess what? I can create my day and my world too! Wow! Thank you Life for allowing me to express myself as the divine orchestrator and creator that I am! I am that I am!
Is life always easy? No. Is life always fair? No. But…. I know that what I seek seeks me so I seek Love, Kindness, Compassion, JOY, Laughter, Expression, Art, Writing, Singing and more…. In fact, I seek more, more, more!!!! But best of all, I love, love, love, that I can help others find all of these things in their life too! Thank you Life for allowing me to use my gift of expression to share inspiration and love through this heart of mine that beats for yet another day.
Happy Valentine’s Day to LIFE! You are the most precious gift and I am grateful to you with all my heart………….
Oh and thanks to my daughter, Sivanna Roses for encouraging me to pick up a paint brush. I do love it!!!! Why have I waited so long? 🙂

Today while messaging a client I came out with a new phrase and thought I would make a new category for it over here at my blog. “Gratitude Pop”. I love it! These can also be called “Joy Pops”, which I love too.
Here is where the gratitude pop stemmed from today.
It is my client’s birthday and she sent me this picture of what she found on the table this morning from her son. I said to her that her heart must be bursting and she said “YES!”
It is such a good feeling to have a pop or burst of gratitude. The new show “Tidying up with Marie Kondo” uses the term ‘Spark Joy’ for keeping items that you absolutely love and cherish. Whatever we call them, they are awesome indeed, and very well something worth focusing on and looking for throughout our day. Think of them like bursts of joy, pleasure and an indicator of something that makes your heart and soul happy. 🙂
This morning I had my own gratitude pop when I saw that the sun was once again rising,on this cold January day in Canada.
What about you? Can you start to add to your Gratitude Pop list throughout your day? Maybe it simply starts with the fact that there is another day. Not everyone will wake up tomorrow to another day sadly, but true. Or maybe you get a Joy Pop when you look at your pet sleeping so cutely and looking so peaceful.
Whatever way you find them, I hope you find lots of Gratitude Pops, Joy Pops, bursts of ‘Spark Joy’, and that many smiles cross both your face and heart today and everyday!
