TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  When I get dressed I try to coordinate my handbag with my outfit.  Black and brown don't always go together but when you're running late in your black boots you sometimes have to grab the brown bag.  Had I gotten up earlier I would have had more time to coordinate.

Matching your outfit is a small thing to coordinate.  What is really frustrating is coordinating our heart's desires and making sure they happen when we want them to.  Well unfortunately it isn't always up to us.  Today's quote is, "Coordination between desires and timing is best left to a higher power but never stop dreaming - never stop working."  

Take a moment to remember all the things you wanted to happen in your life. Now take a moment to feel the gratitude washing over as you as you realize the timing would have been all wrong.  That's right.  You can be just as grateful that something didn't pan out!  

Does this mean give up on your dreams?  Hell no!  Nor does it mean drifting into complacency.  With focus you will reap the rewards of reaching your goals but that will happen organically, not when you say, "ready!"

Let the power of faith course through your veins and acknowledge the higher power stronger than your desire that is working just for you, for me and for everyone.  Work, dream, focus, create and don't forget to continue to live your life with joy.  What you want and when it occurs will be exactly when it is meant to.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

NO LIMITS

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Winter skies during the day can be dreary, the sun barely visible on some days, but the night skies offer something completely different.   Clouds look so much more alive at night.  Their white color looks so bright and beautiful against the dark background and on a clear night when the stars are out, the sky is nothing less than magical!

Its hard not to notice the vastness of the Universe when you stand beneath it.  Where does it begin? Where does it end?  Did you know that your potential is just as limitless yet we find ourselves saying "I can't" more often than "I can."

Today's quote is, "The sky is the limit because there is no limit to the sky - lift the ones you put on yourself and bask in the expanse above."  Self imposed limitations or ones that were put on us still do their job.  They hold us back.  They dim the lights and shut the door.  Why would you want to walk into a dark room?  Know that there is no reason to do that.  What's preventing you from exploring?  Don't answer that.  There are a million reasons (excuses?) you could come up with.

If you feel that something is missing in your life, maybe it is.  If you feel unfulfilled then maybe you are.  This does not have to be your permanent state.  You are never too _____(yep, you fill in the blank) to start again.  Every day is a new day and a new beginning.  Don't just read those words.  Believe them and let them sink in.  The sky's the limit and there is no limit to what you can achieve.  You just have to decide when to take the leap!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

JUST SAY THANK YOU

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  My lack of knowledge in the technological department is legendary.  At least it is in my family.  It has allowed me to be a source of endless entertainment for my children but in the end they pity my ineptitude and help me do what I need to on my phone, computer or iPad.

We can always rely on our family to find our weak spots and laughingly point them out but we can also rely on them to help us in times of need.  My favorite type of help is when it comes from out of the blue and when we are surprised by the kindness of strangers.  

Today's quote is, "Help appears in ways and places unexpected and out of the ordinary - when it does be grateful and say thank you."  Who doesn't need help?  We all do at some point.  Several months ago I was going through a difficult time and like an angel, this stranger, (yes, a complete stranger) reached out to me to offer guidance and support for no other reason than wanting to help.  What did I do?  I gladly accepted it.

The world has been a strange place of late but there are good and wonderful people out there willing to help those they never met.  However help arrives in your time of need be it ordinary or extraordinary, be grateful and say thank you. Thank you Kelley!

 Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

VULNERABILITY - STRENGTH OR WEAKNESS

Good morning everyone!  Happy Thursday.  What does the word vulnerable mean to you.  What does it make you think of?  There are different ways we can be vulnerable; physically, economically, socially and even environmentally.  Sometimes our vulnerability has to do with circumstances and heredity.  Other times it is our sensitive nature that triggers a certain type of vulnerability.  

The word itself can trigger different emotions depending on how we see it.  Today's quote is, "Vulnerability is often confused with weakness - it is an opening of your heart - not a character flaw."  In the area of romance most women want a man who is vulnerable and easily able to share and show his emotions while the manly man looks upon that behavior as weak.  

Why would anyone think sharing emotions is a weakness?  When we share emotions we show that we are human and that we feel.  Everyone feels and by holding back and holding them in all you are doing is hurting yourself.  We know that stress causes illness and it can be very stressful to hold in feelings of anger and sadness when what you need to do is let them out and be done with them.  

Being vulnerable is being open.  When you are open with your feelings you can help others by sharing and recognizing similar situations where you may have been hurt.  In sharing these situations one cannot help but become a more compassionate human being.  Vulnerability is not weakness or a character flaw but a strength and character trait one should be proud of.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

BE YOURSELF -

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  How many of us went to college to study things we were told would benefit us for our future careers whether they interested us or not.  How many of us were pushed either into or away from certain careers because of what someone told us whether we were interested in them or not.  Take it a step further.  How many were pushed into marriages that neither party wanted?  Let me say that for the most part parents want what is best for their children but do they always know what that best actually is?  

Not everyone is cut for 9-5 and certainly not 8-8.  Conventional marriage as we know it isn't for everyone.  Life as we are supposed to live it has been projected onto movie screens for centuries and has left a lasting imprint on us all but what happens when it doesn't resonate with us.  Then what?

Today's quote is, "We are not all made for a life of convention - embrace who you are with love and the utmost respect."  You're not a loser because in a family of doctors you chose botany.  You're not a loser because you chose parenthood before or instead of marriage.  You might be expecting me to say how different we all are.  Its not that.  We are more alike than not.  We want peace and joy in our lives.  We want to be successful and fulfilled. We want love, respect and happiness.  The difference lies in the way we go about it.

We can all sing and we can all dance.  Whether we hit the right notes or step in time, who's to say? Its your song and your moves. 


Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

FINDING YOUR KEYS - Thursday, 3/18



Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  There are two types of people.  Those who throw their keys down wherever they happen to be and those who have a special spot for such items.  My mom is the former and I am the latter.  My mom can never find her keys.  I grew up listening to her perennial quandary.  "Where are my keys?"  It is probably for that reason that I always place mine in the same spot.  On the blue tray on the mail table.  

We can't get into our house without keys.  We cannot get to the store without our keys.  It is the intangible that also require the right keys.  Today's quote is, "Keys that unlock doors hearts and minds are ones we all have inside us given to us at birth - it is up to us when to retrieve them and put them to proper use."

Just like no one can find your house keys no one can tell you when to open up your heart to receive or when to open up your mind to see and understand in ways that you never have before.  No one can tell you when that perfect time will be, it is something you will inherently know and feel.  

The time for expansion arrives not with bells but with a quiet knowing.  When that time comes be ready for the fabulousness that comes with an open heart and an open mind.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone~Love, Amy

TALKING THROUGH VIBRATION

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Seriously my friends, are you feeling chipper and ready to go or are you dragging your heels today.  If I passed you by you wouldn't have to say one word.  I would easily read your mood by either your facial expression, your gait, both or the vibrations you are sending out.  That's right.  Vibrations are visceral.  They are in each and every one of us and although you cannot see them you can feel them in yourself and in others.  

Today's quote is, "The language you speak is understood not with words but with the vibrations within you."  Communication need not be verbal with family members or close friends.  We feel their vibrations a million miles away because of our connection.  What about the ones we aren't connected to.  A co-worker or the person behind you in the grocery store or the one that gives you a feeling of "ick" just to be near them.

No one wears a sign on their forehead that says "ick" nor does anyone wear one that says "I care," but we feel them both don't we.  We steer ourselves from ick and run towards care without anyone uttering a word because those inner vibrations are screaming.

Actions aren't the only things that speaks louder than words.  Through vibrations we speak a language that is crystal clear.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
