At this point in my life I found it interesting that she was in my history and I had watched this almost to the end but I didn’t remember watching it. Now I know why. For me I’ve spent the last 17+ years switched on auto pilot everyday and highly functioning. Now that I’m out here in the abyss of joblessness I’m definitely in my, uncomfortable zone. I’m no longer on autopilot though, part of me misses cruising through life. I really want to do the next step, which for me has been resting until I’m ready. I haven’t taken a real vacation in so many years I’ve forgotten how many so I’m working on some books and things I really wanted to do but never had the time. I love that I have already listened to this and tonight I listened with different ears. I love it when that happens.
From “I’ve Been Thinking” p. 181-185
I find these little gems from her book so helpful and timely in my life. Remembering to rest is something I used to struggle with and now I find myself seeking resting periods. Recharging and remembering this too shall pass. Have a blessed day sweet friends 🙏🏼💜🦋
I’ve had this song running through my head all day….
I hope I can always be found in kindness and humble no matter if you might have received my actions as less than humble and kind. My heart was always for you and always is. No matter what. I miss you when I think of you. ❤
I pray for you and think of you always! xoxo
I start my day out in the morning reading one of these little entries from Maria Shriver’s new book. I wanted to share it with you. I believe we need more kindness and have always tried to share and show kindness.
I love that she starts her day like I do in meditation.
I was like her and used to see kindness and gentleness as weakness but as I’ve gotten older, I too, realize it’s one of my greatest strengths.
I love that she ends each entry with a prayers. It amazes me how much it is relevant to my life.
Just in case you want to get this book. I highly recommend it.
Have a gentle day filled with Kindness. ღ
Below a piece of my Kindness art. I plan to keep sharing this type of art as always ღ
I keep forgetting what day of the week it is. Sorrow knows no day of the week, nor no season. I’m shifting and transforming and it’s okay and then 5 mins later it’s not okay.
I start my days with a prayer which goes something like this…
Then I watch this video and dance a little. Because somewhere along the way I forgot my dance and my song.
Then I go to the gym and walk listening to Marianne Williamson and I pray a lot. I’ve bought this sweet little book by Maria Shriver…she ends each share with a prayer which reminds me of my heart friend Laurie @ lauriesnotes.com
I’m thinking today I might strike out on my own and publish books for those who are deeper and not looking to be famous but to really help people, like my friend Laurie. Who knows I’m am free, on a long long, paid vacation. That’s really sweet to me.
I’m listening to Eva Cassidy. Bridge over troubled water. God is my bridge and I’m so thankful for those that show up and help calm the storms inside my soul. Amen
~🧡 My iPhone now has orange hearts 🧡 ~just yesterday I wished for them and this morning they are in my emojis. Yay my favorite color is 🧡~ I am a little excited to see them 🧡 Can you tell? 🧡
I still remember when I first saw these ruby slippers.
I still believe they were magical. There’s no place like home
She wanted us all to remember what we lost that day. Every time I see you I do remember. I was thinking maybe remembering painful things helps us to transform this into reality. Reminds us how truly strong we really are. 💖🙏🏼
Sometimes rose colored glasses change my perspective even if it’s only in hue. You and things look different. My heart doesn’t wear rose colored glasses. Sometimes I wish it did. 💖
I saw this on Wynona’s twitter. I think maybe we could be more gentle with each other.
