FEAR OF THE DARK

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Introvert or extrovert?  Which one are you?  Perhaps like me, you are a bit of both.  I love a good party but I also love my alone time.  I rise before the birds for my day job and although getting up before the sun is difficult it is also a beautiful time of day.  No one in my house is up, not even Mia.  It is the time of day I am completely alone with my thoughts and the residual memories of the dreams from the night.  Alone time is not always treasured by all.

Today's quote is, "Time alone is to be treasured unless you are afraid of what you might find."  Not everyone can be alone.  It can be scary.  Benign thoughts can turn on a dime taking your mind to places you fear and ones you would never dream of visiting had you had some company.

Your mind wanders much of the day.  I know from personal experience but also from scientific evidence.  Forty seven percent of our day is spent on everything except what we are supposed to be doing.  Why not let it take you to wonderful places?  Being alone doesn't have to be like a walk in a hall of horrors.  It can be the time you need to solve problems and make plans.  

Don't fear the dark for after the dark there is always light.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone, ~Love, Amy

AGAINST THE CURRENT

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Summer is officially behind us.  Although there are days of relaxation whatever the season is there is nothing that compares to the lazy feel of a summer day.  The fall is always so busy I sometimes long for the days of sitting by a lake watching the tiny ripples in the water.  Once fall begins the universal "us" seems to hit the ground running.

Today's quote is, "Swimming against the current exhausts more than your body but your mind and spirit too."  I know you're busy.  I know you have a lot on your plate. I know you're juggling a million things at once but no matter what needs to get done if you don't slow down, nothing will get done.  Nothing will be accomplished if you're running in circles. 

I'm extremely grateful to the people who clean my house.  Cleaning my house was one of my least favorite chores but one that I did myself for years.  I would start upstairs and work my way down which seemed to take forever.  The slightest thing would distract me.   A three hour job would take four hours at the very least, making me realize I needed help.

What is it that you need help with?  What can you take off your plate to make your day flow more smoothly?  Don't be shy.  Ask for help.  The Universe is on your side.


Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone~ Love, Amy

THE NOVEL WRITTEN BY YOU

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  I love both reading and writing.  Reading is wonderful for so many different reasons.  You can vicariously go on an adventure, learn about the lives of others, drool over just about every cuisine and travel to faraway places.  Reading helps broaden your perspective and enhances your vocabulary thus helping in the writing process.

I bet you didn't realize how many novels you have written.  Today's quote is, "There is a novel in each of us with chapters on love, despair, defeat, success and joy.  Re-read each one and see where you are drawn and what it is you wish to leave behind."  

The pain, sorry and grief  you've lived through is there but so is the love, the joy, successes and strength you've shown to navigate through rough waters.  Each chapter needs to be re-read allowing you to see how far you have come.  Maybe you don't want to leave any chapters behind.  After all, each one made you who you are today.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

THE VOICE WITHIN

Good morning everyone.  Happy Thursday.  There are times in life when we have big decisions to make and because we are unsure or feel we need some help, we put our trust in those we know and love to decide for us as if they have all the answers but you know what?  Even the people we know and love so much don't always know what is best for us.

As a child I was spoken to more than listened to.  I learned that what others said was more important that what I said or what I thought and therefore it was difficult for me to make decisions.  Thankfully I've come very far since childhood.

Today's quote is, "You can hear advice but listen to your intuition."  You know yourself better than anyone so if you really look deep inside yourself you will find the answers to all your questions. 

Ask for advice and hear it all but when the sun sets, listen to the voice that only you can hear otherwise known as your own intuition.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WELCOME

 Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  What are your plans for the day?  Anything exciting or just the ordinary.  What about your life plans?  Have you given that a thought or are they just happening as you go on living?  You don't always need a plan.  Sometimes its nice to let things happen and evolve as they should.

News flash.  This isn't our first rodeo.  We've ridden that horse before.  The difference is we are here to perfect that ride!  Today's quote is, "You are the being the Universe was waiting for - watching - wondering when you would arrive to finish what you started when last you left."

If you are reading this I know we are of the same mind set.  We have all been here before and we have so much work to do that our souls just had to return.  That person that rubs you the wrong way?  They're back too and chances are you'll run into them again.  That person that feels like you've known forever?  You have!  They're back as well.

That unresolved situation?  You will live it once again until finally it is resolved.  The Universe is there to help and will step in just when you need it but is also curious as to how you will handle things this time around.  To quote the lyrics from The Lost Horizon, "The World is a Circle that Never Begins, Nobody Knows Where It Really Ends!"

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

SWEETNESS - NOT BITTERNESS

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Life is amazing and wonderful but life can also throw us some major curveballs.  One minute its smooth sailing and the next you capsize.  Sometimes you're on a roll where everything is great and other times absolutely nothing is going in your favor.  Giving up isn't an option but your attitude is.

Today's quote is, "To get lost in the arms of bitterness is to disallow the loving embrace of sweetness."  The hill made of resentment and anger leading to bitterness is hard to get down from.  It is a sticky web one must try and pull away from.  

There is no denying that some of us have had life experiences that leave us scratching our heads wondering what we did to deserve this pain and sorrow but if we let ourselves get swallowed up in bitterness we close the door to laughter, joy, hope and love.

Leave bitterness behind and make room for the sweetness to come back into your life.  The sweetness that you deserve.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

WE ARE A MIRROR

 Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  It would be wonderful to walk around happy and cheerful all the time but we don't.  We are thinkers and obsessors. We are ten steps ahead of ourselves at all times, planning and worrying.  Even when we run into a friend the thought pattern remains the same as we exchange pleasantries and commiserate together on our stressful lives.

What if you stopped obsessing.  What if  you stopped planning and worrying and were in the moment.  The very moment of now.  There is no doubt in my mind that you would not only feel better but attract smiles in your direction rather than grievances.

Today's quote is, "Our internal world is mirrored all around us."  When we feel insecure, defeated and inadequate we don't need to wear a t-shirt to let anyone know.  We wear those feelings in our movements, actions and expressions and when that is what we wear, that is what we attract.  

Will there be days when we feel utterly hopeless and miserable?  Where you feel angry and annoyed?  Of course there will but before you give in to those feelings take a breath.  Write down your upset and then write down your blessings.  Let them be a reminder of all that is good in your life and walk out that door with confidence clarity and hope.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
