Turning The Page

Well all have times in our lives where we need to leave the old behind. Of course, it is much easier said than done. Mistakes, that aren't mistakes at all but, learning experiences. But, how do you turn the page.

Intellectually, I understand the concept but , that does not exactly get me what I want. I don't want to continue reliving things and situations that are no longer relevant. if something happened twenty years ago, and you haven't resolved it yet. well, it really doesn't matter. Think about it. Give a place, in your life. Make peace with it and move on.

I believe that I am at the beginning of a new part of my life and I am not going to wait until New Year's to start. Everyone begins on New Year's, I'd rather begin when I realized I should start.

As I begin a new portion of my life, I am grateful for all my experiences and all those who were a part of it. I am very grateful to those special few who have not only been friends on the trip called life but, who have proven their place in my life and in my heart. You know who you are.

So, take a moment. Reflect. Get ready....

Turn the page....

QVC Nightmare

No, I don't have anything personal against QVC or the Home Shopping Network. We all have to make a living  some how.   I have to be honest. I have never seen either one.

 I have been a victim of infomercials because, they sneaked them in. I thought I was looking at an actual program. Yes, if you are thinking to yourself that I am Naive, you are right.

But, I was caught completely off guard with a QVC segment. It locked me into it for a  full five minutes and had the phone not rung, I was have been taken into the land of shopping while, being in the QVC trance. I was watching jewelry made from Jackie Kennedy's collection. Jackie O has always been a favorite of mine. The true words of Chanel ringing through her wardrobe " less is more. "

I stood there suspended in animation, asking myself the questions: what do I own that, I can wear with that. Sipping my tea, I found myself going deeper and deeper  considering the flex payments options.

No, not me. I was actually saved by the bell, literally.

If you find yourself trapped, as I was be strong, turn it off. If they are trying to sell you something when you are so vulnerable in your own home. Trust me. You don't need it.

Asking the question

It has been quite a long time since, I have written. So, much has happened and at the same time nothing. Life has a way of getting beyond us and that is exactly what happened.

The creative process is still strong but, once again I am stuck. I have  alot in common with Vincent, except I don't intend on cutting my ear or anything.

Now, I figure I will write to get out all those thoughts that keep me up at night. The rollings of questions and answers I keep asking myself until the wee hours of the morning. Face book is fun because, you find out how many people can't sleep like yourself. That, doesn't actually make me feel better just, not so alone.

As I get older I ask myself the million dollar question. Why am I here? and, how can my life make a difference? Yes, they are big questions, unfortunately, the big questions don't have have big answers. the answers come like a whisper, or the last few melodies of a song, that quietly, that simple.

The words that I write here will be light a lantern floating into the never ending path of the Internet, the world wide web. This is as good of a place as any to stretch and keep the journey going. The journey never ends. But, I am sure that you knew that already....

asking the big question..... Why?

The Light House Journey



A few weeks ago , we started a journey. The journey was to discover lighthouses up the coast of California. It gives us a focus and a direction to move toward. California is a wondeful state what a shame not to really discover it for all its beauty. My daughter, my boyfriend and me as taking  a look at the beauty and history that surrounds the historical light houses of California..I will be writing more, they are breath taking.

Reflection



After losing so many people in my life. I have to admit, I spent  great deal of time in lamentation of what I had and lost. Yes, you hear all the time people telling to do the opposite. Unfortunately, it is something you have to come in on you own about that part. I lost them, I know but, the grief  caught me off guard. it took me off my game. what I mean for game? I mean the game called life. That is where my new observation has been. I spent   a great deal of time lamenting what I had, that Id dint think about what I have. yes, I know its a very Christmas thing to do but, there really isn't  a wrong time to come to that realization. The realization, brings a sense of freedom and a deep understanding I thought I had but, didn't.

Those that I have loved and lost, gave me so much. their loved changed me, enveloped me and create d anew me that would have never been created if it wasn't for their love. So, I wanted to take a moment to take all those who loved me for me, Your love put on the path to becoming the individual that I am now.
So, looking deep in my heart, and closing my eyes I want to send it out into the universe, thank you for becoming the fiber of who I am and who I am becoming.


Moving forward? well, of course. You can't be empowered with the power of where you are in the universe and decide to do nothing. That just sint' my way. Will I have a companion on this journey? That is still a mystery. I like surprises. If that happens,  it will be a welcome asset to the path on this  amazing journey called life....It really is all sweet...to sweet to waste. So, you hate what is happening in your life? Shake your bones, shake your body like you haven't shaken it ever and vow to begin again. To look forward and well do some butt kicking and give life  a run for its money...
