Friendship, giving, support

Sweet Friendships

A sweet friendship refreshes the soul.”

Proverbs 27.9 The message

Friendships are one of the greatest gifts in the world! Why is this so? For many reasons but I think a big one is because you feel supported.

In any relationship feeling understood and supported are both really important. A friend is often the perfect person to offer these gifts to you.

I really believe that in any relationship the best gift we can give each other is supporting each other in our wants and desires ie. “I want what you want for you!”. At least to me, this has been my greatest gift from my family, friends and even those I have met in my work. When we feel supported and we feel that our wants and desires are important, it truly is freeing and magical.

I hope that you too support yourself also. We need to be our own best friend and supporter. 🙂 Something to think about……

She really believes that if you open your heart up and expand its reach, what comes back to you will be ten fold! Woo hoo and Oh ya!

Family, Friendship, love, wisdom

A View of The World from Two 12 Year Olds

Today I am sitting here with my 12 year old daughter Sivanna and her friend Robyn. While I was thinking of what I would blog about today, I thought hey why don’t I ask these two wise ones some questions about life.

Question #1
What excites you about the thought of your future?
Sivanna: Finding somebody like a husband or partner and making a family together that’s full of love and stuff.
Robyn: Making her own family with her husband.

Question #2
What makes you feel good?
Robyn: Being with my friends and family.
Sivanna: When I take my probiotics because when I’m not feeling well it makes me feel better.

Question #3
What makes a good friend?
Robyn: When they are like there for you and they are not mean and you have fun with them!
Sivanna: They respect you and your opinions and feelings.

Well I think these were some wise and interesting comments. It sounds to me that health and happiness in life come from loving and enjoying the people in our lives and also by respecting the thoughts and feelings of other people. Thanks girls for your insight and for sharing today.

A Friend in Need

“A friend is someone who is there for you when he’d rather be anywhere else”. Len Wein

This quote made me reflect on how wonderful it is in life to have support and how having a friend when you need one is so comforting. Then I got to thinking what about us? Are we there for ourselves when we need us to be? Do we treat ourselves like a best friend would or could? Or are we wanting to be anywhere else then loving, helping, and supporting ourselves?

Often times we understand the importance of caring for others but when it comes to ourselves it is not as easy.

What if we looked at ourselves as our own best friends? What if we encouraged ourselves and supported ourselves by seeing ourselves as our own best friend?

To my best friend, Me, I love you, I support you, I encourage you and you need to know that I will be here for you always. 😊 I may not always make the best choices but I will always hold you in the Love and Light that I know you are.

To all the best friends out there may you be the best you can be to your ME!

Happy Birthday to Life!

  •  Today is My Birthday………

    roses2

I am away in one of my favorite cities, Duluth, Minnesota, on the shores of one of my favorite lakes, Lake Superior, and with one of my dearest and best friends, Erika.

Yesterday we had a lovely drive along this beautiful lake that is indeed Superior. It is one of the most majestic drives there is and it is enjoyed by many.

My friend and I  had the pleasure of driving through the quaint little town of Grand Marais, Minnesota, and had a delightful lunch at The Angry Trout Restaurant. It was a beautiful day and our hearts were light and the day was bright!

This morning, I awoke to many wonderful messages and birthday wishes. It always feels so good to receive so much love and kindness from others.  One message in particular has moved me in a profound way and inspired me to write this blog post.

It was a message from a dear friend and business partner. His words touched me in a way that made me feel that my life has been worthwhile, and that a difference has been  made in the world by my presence in it. To me, that is my only desire; that I can in some way uplift, inspire and/or encourage others to live a life that inspires them, a life that is true to their soul and their soul’s calling. I was indeed grateful that his words reached me now, while I am alive, and not at the end of my life, which is when we tend to share how others have inspired or touched us in some way.

His words and sharing from his heart, open and expansive, have further fuelled my rocket ship of desire to spread more Love, Joy, and Kindness in the world.  To my friend I thank you. Namaste.

To all of us, I say let us make every day and every moment a Birth-Day.  Let us make it a time to rebirth ourselves anew. We are not who we were yesterday or even an hour ago. We are only who we are choosing to be, right now and in this exact moment. Choose Happiness. Choose Love! Choose to see that the world IS a friendly place. Choose to connect to the things that move your soul and call to your heart, and when you see them, share them! Touch someone else’s life by sharing these moments, by sharing your appreciations, by sharing  your gifts and thank others for their gifts and how they have impacted you. Let us celebrate each other and the gift of our being in the world, co-creating and expressing our most beautiful and divine selves.

If you are reading this, I thank you for being in my life in some way. My wish for you is that you choose in this moment, that the birth of your life, is indeed worthwhile and that you grab it with Gusto and Passion…. run with it my friends, run with it.

A finale note. Tonight will be a full moon. The perfect time to start a new cycle and create anew. I found this fitting for today. I absolutely LOVE staring at the moon! For me, it is one of those moments I am referring to.

I also love this quote that was shared by The Positive Outlooks Blog….

In Love & Light,
