More Kindness Quotes … Just Because

We can never give or receive too much kindness. The sky is the limit!

Here are some kindness quotes to enJOY and to remind us of how powerful kindness can be.

Being kind to even one person can change a life. There are countless true stories of the power of even a random smile from a stranger that when received on a dark day or moment in a life, can be the difference between life and death. Kindness is THAT POWERFUL!

Thankful this Thanksgiving

This morning I walked into the kitchen and saw my Turkey platter in the dish rack and the sun shining behind it. How beautiful. I reflected upon the lovely Thanksgiving dinner we had here yesterday. It is my favorite meal and occasion to prepare for.

My Big Turkey Platter

Every holiday that we have turkey, I bring out this platter. I love using our special dishes and such to make the occasion even more festive and enJOYable. My sister-in-law loved this platter so much, I also found one for her 🙂 I love thrift shopping as many of you know. So much JOY!

We make so many happy memories at these get togethers and it is just so good to spend time together and to appreciate each other and to honor who we are and where we came from… that is family. Not everyone makes every holiday but that is okay, we celebrate and enJOY with whoever is able to attend. And sometimes most of us are there. I am so grateful to still have all my siblings here on earth.

As with most families we get some traditions happening. Big Audrey (because there is a little Audrey) or Baba as we call her, always carves the turkey. She is in her 80’s and still gets up there and does this. We all love it. Baba always brings me a useful gift even though I tell her she need not bring anything. One year it was an amazing turkey cutting board with spikes to hold the turkey and a little run way for the juices. Awesome. We now use it on every turkey occasion. Bubba and I both like to thrift shop hee hee. We have many happy discussions around this and often bump into each other our favorite stores. It makes me smile every time. 🙂 🙂 🙂

The cutting board from Baba.. think how many memories have been made through its use. Beautiful!

This year Baba brought an apron to wear and to leave for me when finished. Perfect! One can never have enough aprons, especially with many hands helping in the kitchen. 🙂

The apron Audrey brought me. One of many throughout the years.

With the cooler temperature at this time of year, it makes it even cozier and warming. We even had snow on the ground yesterday. 🙂

Our meal was wonderful of course. We had many laughs, smiles and JOYS. We listened to Uncle John tell his many jokes and I could tell that each one of us appreciated them more than ever. We all know that life is a cycle and what we have now, we will not always, so everything is more enhanced and appreciated.

I am grateful that my family, like myself, gets more and more appreciative of moments like this. In fact, these moments are sacred to me (tears streaming down my face as I type this). I watch and observe that as we get older it means more and I watch and know that my daughter and the youth will one day cherish these times more than any other. These will be the memories that stand out for them.

At the end of the evening, Don, Bubba and myself chatted about how these ARE the most important things in life. There is nothing better than being together at times like this, sharing food, laughter, and memories, with people who are comfortable to share of themselves… to tease, to laugh and to most of all LOVE.

One of the reasons I blog is so that I can share my feelings but also to record these moments for future enJOYment for my offspring and for whoever happens upon them. I hope they will be inspired and will use my sharing and writing to inspire them to have more JOY in their life and to spread more JOY in the world. It always starts around your own kitchen table first. 🙂

Color Therapy, Joy, pink, Purple

Pink for Transformation & JOY!

Our reactions to colors are often deeply rooted and can be significant when we are intuitively connected to how colors makes us ‘feel’.

A certain color has the ability to ease your frazzled nerves, motivate and empower you to take action, and also to bring healing and soothing energy when you need it.

Pink is my favorite color. Well at least it was for most of my life. Now I am enJOYing purple a lot more. Many years ago I tapped into the power of color and how it made me feel. I am quite in sync with using colors in my life to lift my spirits and to shift my frequency and to also heal areas that need healing.

Today is about pink though. They say pink is the color of JOY and universal mother love and I believe this to be true. When you need more JOY in your life or you are trying to transform a negative situation to one that is more loving, try adding pink into your life. I recently went to a friend’s birthday party and they had pink cups, plates, decorations, etc. and my heart lifted and smiled as soon as I arrived and saw them.

Pink is a gentle and JOYous color. Pink is also a transformational color. It can transmute dark and heavy vibrations and feelings,and provide a motherly, soothing, energy to a situation.

I have many ways that I use color in my life and work. Here is one example. As I write this blog post, here are today’s tools ….my pens. Today there are pink and purple pens. Some days there are silver, turquoise or lavender or all of the above.  My pens and their colors help me to create. They are a part of the artist in me and I see them as magical enhancements to my life’s work. 

I hope you look at colors in a whole new light and that you use them to bring you JOY, to transform, to heal, and to create beauty in your life.

Greatest Truth

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.

Kahlil gibran

Today’s blog post is an excerpt from Dr. Bernie Siegel’s book “365 Prescriptions for the Soul”. He says it perfectly here:

THE GREATEST TRUTH I know about life is that love is the answer. If you ask me what the question is I will tell you it is every question you could ever ask. Love is always the answer to every question and problem. We are here to love and be loved and learn a few things in the process.

I can never be wrong when I choose to love. Love rewards me by bringing meaning to my life. I know when I choose to love I will always be in the right place at the right time. It provides my life with the order and hamony that bring me peace.

All I ask of life is to be given the chance to love, and I pray that I will be able to do that, despite my imperfections. My days are devoted to acting as if I am the lover I want to be, and I know someday I will become who I hope to be. Until that day, those around me remain grateful for my attempt.” End of Quote

***********************

I hope you enJOYed the excerpt from Bernie’s book today as much as I did. We can never be reminded enough that “Love is All There Is”.

Peace, Peace of Mind, Wayne Dyer

A Peaceful Life….

Lately it has come to me that the greatest gift one can have in life, is peace of mind. I meet so many people throughout my life and work that share with me about their anxiety, their endless thoughts and worry.

To put your head down at night and feel content is the greatest feeling in the world.

And then waking up excited for a new day… glorious!

Lovely young woman waking up and stretching in bed in bedroom

I believe Peace is something we all would like at our deepest core level. We come from Love ❤ and we return to Love, ❤ but sometimes unfortunately we get lost along the way. Life’s stressors, relationships, health challenges, addictions, and the way of the world, can all interfere with our peace of mind.

This morning I was reading from Wayne Dyer’s Book ” Secrets for Success and Inner Peace” and I found this:

Suppose you had a choice between two magic wands. With Wand A, you can have any physical thing you desire by simply waving it. With Wand B, you can have a sense of peace for the rest of your life regardless of what circumstances arise. Which would you pick? A guarantee of stuff, or inner peace for the remainder of your life? If you opt for peace, then you already have Wand B. Simply have a mind that is open to everything but attached to nothing. Let it all come and go as it will. EnJOY it all, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any thing, any place, and particularly, any person.

Wise words Wayne, wise words….. something to reflect on for sure…..

Love & Manifesting

As an entrepreneur who works and plays from anywhere, I like to make my environment condusive to my work and that includes making me feel good wherever I am working.

Today while working at my city home, I thought I would light this candle and then I decided to put out this little love plaque. It is pretty to look at and gives me good vibes. ❤

I have personally tapped into the power of operating from the frequency of Love and using it to create worlds, to put it simply. LOL…. simply!

But seriously, we are created from Love and we return to Love, so yes worlds are created through the power of Love. It is the force behind everything and when it comes to manifesting, it is a super powerful source.

I ran across this quote from one of my most favorite authors Anita Moorjani. Anita had a near death experience and came back very enlightened. Here is the quote from her book that I refer to today:

“When I was in the other realm, where the layers upon layers of my values and beliefs were stripped away and I was left facing the truth of who I am at my core, I learned that two primary forces—ⱠØVɆ ₳₦Đ ₣Ɇ₳Ɽ—had been driving all my behaviors. One or the other of these two forces was behind every single action I ever took, and I could clearly see that I’d in fact spent most of my life being driven by fear, not love. I understood with a sudden stunning clarity that to transform my life, whatever I said or did from that point on would need to come from a place of [̲̅l̲̅][̲̅o̲̅][̲̅v̲̅][̲̅e̲̅] instead of fear.”
― Anita Moorjani, What If This Is Heaven?: How Our Cultural Myths Prevent Us from Experiencing Heaven on Earth

Now back to Love and Manifesting. When we are in the highest of high of vibes aka Love, it is very easy to manifest amazing things. I know this to be true. I witness it often in my own life. When I am in fear and strife, guess what I get more of? Fear, strife and icky things. But when I am in Love and I feel empowered, guess what I get more of? Amazing, rock star, holy hannah awesome stuff. It’s like the universal red carpet rolls out and produces magic!!!!

How do we get to this place of vibing in the Love frequency. We become Love. We show kindness to self and others. We help strangers. We smile at people and we smile more. We share inspiration with others. We offer hope.

There are countless ways to raise your vibe and I have written about them often. Her is a link to a prior blog post on shifting away from the worry and fear train and instead hopping aboard the Peace train. You may find it helpful. It helped me just to reread it again! If you want to know a secret, a lot of this stuff I write, I write for me too! I too struggle so my own writings and declarations help me too! I am so selfish aren’t I? Lol

Here is another one you might find useful:

I hope you find this post and links helpful to increase your JOY and Love frequencies. Remember it’s like a ladder… you climb the frequency ladder one rung at a time so be sure to do little things that make your soul happy and then watch what happens…. very powerful!

Kindness Quotes Just Because

I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to my fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

Stephen Grellet

Men are only as great as they are kind

Elbert Hubbard

“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”

Fall Focus For Manifesting

This afternoon I have been working on my September newsletter and I am in the vibe of focusing on new goals and starting new projects and such. This always leads me to the topic of manifesting and attracting what we want in life to us. I opened my email to the perfect quote about this….. it was perfectly attracted to me today 🙂 lol

Here it is from Esther Hicks:

If we were standing in your physical shoes we would not merely observe what others are doing and use that as a basis for our own attraction. We would focus deliberately on things that we want to attract into our experience. And then, we would sit on the front row of our own creation, witnessing the results of the climate that we have deliberately prepared.

Excerpted from North Los Angeles, CA on 2/22/14

Our Love,
Esther
(and Abraham and Jerry)

I thought this was a perfect reminder! We must always remember to focus on what we want and see and feel ourselves already having it or experiencing it. The more I practice and use the universal laws like The Law of Attraction, the easier and speedier the manifestation occurs in my life.

I am also of the mindset that the more we can be in a frequency of Love and empowerment rather than in a survival frequency, or just getting through, the easier manifestation and wonderful creations happen in our lives. Love is the sweet spot in the scale of frequency and is where the magic truly happens.

Love is free. Love is expansive. Love is abundant and always open to more.

I hope you too take a look at using this time of the year to reset your manifestation goals and to work on your dreams. They are hugely important and there is no better project to work on than your dreams.

🙂

Earth Family

Heart shaped tree before space background

We are family!

A reading from the book “Mary’s Messages to the World” by Annie Kirkwood.

“The family is a microcosm of the world. We are all one family. We each need to be treated with respect, love and honor. Begin to see the world as your family. Every soul on this planet is a creation of One Great Creator. Every culture is honorable, every race is to to be honored as God’s creation, every nation is a brother, every religion is a sister. Look to the sameness of life on this planet. See that the same love is expressed in every member of every nation.”

I could not help but share this paragraph from the this book. I thought it was a great message.

“I love you and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

Mornings = HOPE

As I sit here at the keyboard, in the early morning, witnessing the birth of a brand new summer day, I am once again in awe of life. Mornings are the granted promise of a new day and with a new day comes new Hope.

Hope is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of the a waking man.

One of my favorite sayings that a friend shared with me years ago is “Where there is breath, there is Hope”. I’ve never forgotten that.

I hope you are all enJOYing your morning today and that you are excited for this new day that is full of Hope and Promise. I am infusing these words with extra LOVE if you who are reading this right now, need some extra LOVE. Blessings to YOU!
