Make Dates With Life & People * D♥a♥t♥e♥s *

There is something so special about spending one-on-one time with people that you love and enJOY being with. To this day I can remember back to a time when I had lunch with my Dad, at a little local restaurant. I think this might have been one of the very few times, if not the one and only time, we had lunch together at a restaurant, just the two of us. I remember it clearly. And my father has been gone since 1995! That is how meaningful that seemingly simple lunch was.

Spending time one-on-one with someone else is a beautiful form of intimacy and connection that is absolutely special. ✿.。.:* ☆:** ♥♥♥♥

My daughter Sivanna and I have a Tuesday date where we go out and enJOY some food together before her gymnastics class at 6:30 pm. Usually it is Chinese but sometimes it is Tacos for Taco Tuesday. 🙂 It really does not matter where we go or if we are even going out to eat, it matters that it is our special time together.

Spending Time With Others is a ğŸŽ€ 𝑔𝒾𝒻𝓉 ğŸŽ€

Spending time with others is a gift to both parties, provided the people you are spending time with are a positive encounter. That is certainly a place that I have come to in life. I prefer to enJOY the company of those who reciprocate in lifting each other up and enhancing our lives with conversations of JOY, beauty, and excitement for life, sharing our thoughts on things that make us happy, new projects we are working on, goals, dreams, and anything that feels good. Not to say, I am not available to lend a kind ear, or an empathetic heart, but I do prefer to have those ‘special’ dates with life enhancing partners and where we both feel GOOD after it’s over.

My honey and I have our date night every Friday night. We both look forward to it greatly. We talk nonstop and bounce ideas off each other, we share our philosophies, we share and co-create ideas for what to write about, (we both love to write to express ourselves), we bounce around business ideas, updates, discussions about our daughter, and on it goes.

We love these date nights. ♥♥♥ Sometimes we go out, sometimes we stay in, sometimes we dance to our own music, sometimes we laugh our a%#es off, and sometimes we have heart to heart talks… and it is all good. It is our special time. It is our date night and it is something we honor.

Our little table at the Lake House where we have had many romantic dinners together.

And I even do dates with myself! Yep. I walk into a restaurant and I tell them I would like a table for one because I am having a date with my best friend 🙂 I do enJOY immensely having these times with myself. In fact, I enJOY them A LOT!

I love being alone with myself and with my thoughts. I feel so FREE. Free to be ME. FREE to do whatever I want in that time. It is GLORIOUS in fact.

A beautiful Butterfly FREE like ME

I hope you too see the beauty in having dates with life and the people that you enJOY being with. Why not start today and book something for this upcoming week? It can be as simple as sharing a cup of tea with a friend. 🙂

I Barely Recognized this Person!

An Amazing Story of Transformation from Suffering to FREEDOM!

Last night in the grocery store I was witness to something pretty amazing!

I ran into a woman who used to work for me and she was a different person. I have run into her a couple of times in the last couple of years and each time she has transformed more and more into this new beautiful person. But last night she was off the charts AMAZING!

In the past she was sick, in pain, down, irritable and you could tell she was just not happy. She didn’t enjoy her work or her life.

I will call this woman ‘Mary’. What changed for Mary? Mary became empowered. She left her husband and ventured out on her own. She now has her own home and she is happy. Her energy was light and airy and her eyes twinkled and sparkled and she looked like a completely different person to me.

Mary is excited about life now, no longer in physical pain, and she appeared radiantly happy. It just brought me so much JOY to see this. She even declared how happy she is and you could see it!

Sometimes in life we have to leave things like situations, jobs, relationships when they are no longer serving us for our highest good. What is the price we pay if we do not and we are suffering? We stay in suffering.

For me, any relationship that I have in my life, should empower me, not disempower me. Whether it is my friend, my partner, or a business relationship, I believe it should be mutually empowering, uplifting and beneficial for all, otherwise I am out.

Mary was such a clear messenger on how powerful and positive a change like this could make. She honored herself enough to leave this relationship that was not serving her and was not a loving and supportive situation, to keep it simple. I will not go into details. The point is that Mary took her life back and is now thriving and not merely surviving.

I just had to share this story because to me it is a sign of HOPE and what can be. Our lives can change when we choose to look closely at those things that are not serving us and are in fact disempowering ourselves, even if they are simple things like habits, conversations, self-talk, fears, etc.

By taking a look at what makes you ‘feel good’ in your life and what ‘sucks your life force and energy’, you can get clear on what you want more of in your life and what has to go.

I hope you found this post helpful even if it is just to open up more to ‘feeling’ your way through life and to use your feelings as your GPS to more Happiness.

Have an amazing day and I send nothing but Blessings to all who are reading this. 🙂

Everything in Life is an Energy Exchange… Everything!

energy exchange picture

Do you ever have visions or get inspired just before you wake up or get out of bed? I do often and this morning was no different. This little drawing was the first thing I did after making my lemon water this morning.

There are two things I am learning and getting at a much deeper level. One is that everything is art because we are all creators, so everything is art to me now… the food I make, the drawing/chart/whatever you want to call it picture in this blog post, the words I am writing, and on and on. It’s all art becaues I am creating it!

The second thing I am really understanding is that I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt, that everything IS energy, but now I am getting deeply how everything is about energy exchange! As my picture shows, there is energy being exchanged in all directions all the time:

Between the sun and the earth

Between the sun and food and growing food

Between the sun and people

Between the sun and our pets

Between us and our pets

Between people and people

Between business owners and their clients

Between couples

Between words the reader of the words

Between sound and the listener of the sound

and on and on an on.

The key here is what kind of energy are you exchanging in any situation? Is it warming and soothing like the sun can be? Is it uplifting to your soul? Does it bring a smile to your face? Are your serving others with the energy you put out?

Why not ponder on this for a moment or as you go through your day?  Observe the energy exchanges that you have and see if they are serving you for your highest good or if they could use some enhancements.

I will close with a saying that I think ties in well here and will leave you with this thought that I hit home on time and time again. “What you seek, seeks YOU!” So, think of that when you are out there exchanging energy. Want more love? Give more love! Want more kindness in your life? Give more kindness! Want more compassion in your life? Be more compassionate….. and on and on and on…

Have an amazing day everyone and I am sending you so much juicy positive energy that I KNOW you can feel it right now! Lap it up K? 🙂
