Things Not Yet Seen

I’m sure many people have heard about the Power of Intention. It may also be known as the Law of Attraction. Let me tell you folks, this is a real thing. Whenever I put out a message to the Universe (which for me is praying to God) for something I need, eventually my message gets a response. Let me give you some examples.

Okay Science, I Give Up

Remember when margarine was better for you than butter? Remember when eggs held dangerous cholesterol levels and they suggested egg substitutes? Remember when coffee was bad for you, and then it wasn’t?

Deeply Personal

I wish this was going to be one of my quippy posts, but no. I have a serious, personal confession to make, and I’m a bit embarrassed by it. I thought I’d throw it out there. Maybe it’ll help someone else suffering from the same thing to not feel so alone.

Update Central

path-stream-bench (575x600) wmI’ve contemplated whether or not to share updates about my husband’s injury. I mean, this blog was not intended to be all about a recovery, but rather, about life’s lessons, studying human behavior, then learning and growing from it all. Why would people want to read about a man’s two broken feet?

The more I contemplated, the more I realized that the path we are on has lots of lessons to share. With each new day in this crisis, we discover something new about ourselves. For example, we should never sell ourselves short. There are so many things I thought I couldn’t do before this crisis, but now I’m doing them. This isn’t just a lesson for me, but I share it for all. There is a spirit of strength inside all of us.

But I digress, because this blog post is the latest update and lesson on our path.

I know I shared this particular theme before, but it’s always a good reminder. Today’s lesson … gratitude. Let me show you why. Below is a ‘before’ photo.

Before I Calm Down

Caveat: This was drafted on Friday the 13th, and is being posted today.

Okay, I’m writing on the fly right after a very frustrating event, so let’s see how this plays out with me just writing from emotion. I’m not calmed down yet, so here goes …

Coping with an Injury

I’m slowly returning from a blogging hiatus after my husband’s accident. We’re still dealing with things, but learning to manage it a bit better. I can’t say for sure, but I hope to post a blog once a week now, plus another for the wisdom quotes I share. I would also like to read more of your blogs when I can. I may not have as much time to comment, but I’ll let you know I read with a ‘like.’ I really do read, I’m not one of those bloggers. 😉

Up, Down, Sad, Happy, Good, Bad

palm fog wmWhen I first moved to Florida twenty-five years ago, one of the local newspapers gave away free papers on any day the sun didn’t shine. I don’t know if that is still their policy, but I learned very soon that this truly is the Sunshine State.

Just a Little Tweaking

In my blog, Best Laid Plans, I wrote about how grateful I am with all that I have in my life, and that’s true. I’d love to tweak a few things though.

For example, as my regular readers know, the heat and humidity take its toll on me where I live. So, I’d tweak my life by changing my geographical location (which I will do some day). I’d love to live near mountains (you may get a new neighbor, Pete, or Nick).
