I was in a business FB group today and the topic came up about how people are much more emotional these days and rightly so!
It made me reflect on the fact that, I too, have been much more emotional. For those of us staying at home, I think we are all experiencing this and it is not necessarily a bad thing.
Maybe there are things we need to clear out and move or to heal and now is a good time for that. People are clearing out their houses and painting rooms, but we can also clear out any emotional baggage as well. If it is no longer serving us it can GO!
One of the ways to help with the movement of emotions or energy in motion, is to allow the emotions to surface and to let them come out. You can do this is positive ways as well.
For example, on my daughter’s birthday last week, I cried multiple times. I cried for the JOY we created together as a family as we celebrated her birthday together. I know this will be the one birthday that she will probably remember the most. We laughed, we cried and we enJOYed.
We even had a treasure hunt in the house. I put notes, a few gifts, that luckily I had bought and wrapped prior to this pandemic (which is unusual for me ) :-), and I hid pictures of her when she was young. She was thrilled finding these old pictures!
So many people came by to leave gifts on the steps or to wave and every time it was soooo moving. And I allowed the emotions to surface within myself. I allowed….
Many people are telling me that they are being emotionally moved by the compassion and kindness they see in the world at this time. This is another great way to allow and to move emotion.
I am enJOYing seeing people painting, playing their guitars, singing, and taking on projects that they had left of the back burner of life. That moves me too!
♥ What about you? ♥
Are you tapping into your emotional side and allowing? Are you deciding which emotions to keep and which ones no longer serve you? I hope so.
I really believe that we will emerge as a brand new butterfly when we bust out of this cocoon. 🙂 Can you see the new and beautiful YOU? I can.

Resilience and endurance are amazing qualities.
I love quotes and I find that they give me strength. These quotes are indeed helping me at this time in history.
I was thinking back today to a time when I met someone who shared with me how much they loved and embraced change. Until that moment, I had never seen change as something to embrace. The comments from this gentlemen were instrumental in helping me to see change in a whole different way.
It was even more profound coming from this person, because he has just experienced something very horrific. I remember thinking that if he could embrace change, then anyone could and I flipped my switch in that very moment.
Now, I am more of an adapter in my life. I accept ‘what is’ and I keep my focus and excitement on where I am headed. I totally understand that, for myself, looking at what was or what I had is futile. It’s all about what I have to work with NOW and how I will use that to create my new reality. My new and bright future. 💥
I guess this is my definition of resilience.
I will close my blog today and I hope you are able to find resilience in your life at this time. Keep your thoughts focused on the positive and the hopeful side. We always, always, have a choice as to where we turn our attention. 🙂
I shared a quote on Facebook today, along with some additional thoughts of my own.
Here was the quote:
“Every situation in life is temporary. So, when life is good, make sure you enJOY and receive it fully. And when life is not so good, remember that it will not last forever and better days are on the way.” Anonymous
My addition to it:
And if you want to take it to the next level, try to EnJOY it even when it is not so called “Good” … we can never get lost time back so let’s squeeze as much JOY out of EVERY moment that we can even when it is challenging. When it seems hard to do, look for things to be grateful for, think of who you Love and who Loves you, Smile at Beautiful memories, send Inspiration and Hope to others, listen to Happy music, take pictures of the sky, notice how blue the sky is, Love up your pet, drink a glass of water all while appreciating that you have clean water to drink, …… the list is endless. Use your internal power and focus wisely.
Can you add to this list? Why not get out a pen and paper or grab your phone and use your Note feature to jot down some more things. I promise you if you do, you will feel so good and that sounds pretty darn good right about now, doesn’t it? 🙂
I am very excited to be able to offer this workbook for you at this time.

“The human capacity for burden is like bamboo- far more flexible than you’d ever believe at first glance.” ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper
Let us always remember that we are stronger than we realize. Challenging times can also challenge us to rethink, to regroup and to adapt to what is currently happening and to the changes that we are experiencing.
We need to be like bamboo and be flexible in our thinking and in our resilience.
I am at the cottage or camp as we call it here in Northern Canada. Something happened to me twice today so I know that I was meant to share the message.
I ran across, in two different locations, something that resonated with me deeply
. 1) in my sock drawer and 2) in my camp journal, was this poem written by my Honey, Don in August of 2012. The words speak volumes to me at this time and I hope you enJOY them too!
Here it is:
When you are in spirit, you are in union with God.You become one with the forest as you sit on that log. Your mind transcends what you believe to be true. You see (っ◔◡◔)っonly ♥ Love ♥ in whatever you do. The sky becomes bluer and the stars more bright…❈❈❈ As you inhale nature in the middle of the night. All people become one as you Serve and you Trust…. There is no them because they all become US.
In the middle of the night, a few days ago, we heard our daughter talking. She sleepwalks often, so we checked on her and she was standing on the bed in the middle of the bed pointing at the ceiling. She might have even been touching the ceiling. And she said “I see numbers on the ceiling 1 1 (pause) 11.”
She was asleep but her voice was very loud and she was touching the numbers 1, 1, .. 1, 1…
Now why I found this to be interesting is because it is said that 11:11 is a number that means “𝐀 𝐆𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐲” to another dimension. Many people see this number often 11:11. I do believe at this critical time in history, we are indeed entering a new dimension.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, we are uniting together world wide like we have never done before. The earth is healing. We are reevaluating life as we know it. We are changing our entire view of everything and I truly believe we will emerge from this in a better place. I see it as a regrouping and an opening to a new way of being… a portal like 11:11 is referred to.
I also think that we are all opening our connection to a deeper dimension and to messages that have deep meaning for us, especially at this time. Like the one I posted about two days ago. If you have not read that one yet, here is the link:
I will close for now and I do hope you are all enJOYing this time of transition. There are so many people that I have spoken to or messaged recently that share with me that they are enjoying this time so much. Many are awakening passions and interests that have been laying dormant or put on the back burner. And they realize now that this is the time for them to let their creativity and their desires out to be actualized. So many people are getting clear on what is important to them and that is an awesome thing.
Take care everyone. Bye for now and there is much ♥ LOVE ♥ sent your way today!
