You Can Do It! National Day of Encouragement

If you can dream it, you can do it. That statement has been attributed to many men, including Walt Disney and Enzo Ferrari. No one really knows where it originated. Perhaps a prehistoric man said it to his son, as the boy looked at the night sky and began to draw figures on a cave wall. I do Read More

Knitting without fingers, living without limits.

Without. The word can mire you in a quicksand of sorrow. Or it can inspire you to obtain success. Canadian Jennifer Marquis chose the latter. She has lived and thrived without fingers her entire life. And she knits. “I have what is called a bi-lateral congenital hand defect, which in layman’s terms basically means: No Read More

Snow days and elephants

Today is a snow day. Actually, it is a day of freezing rain, but the schools are closed and that means I will not make trips to spend time with two little boys before and after school.

Sometimes, quotes or sayings can help us redirect our thinking, or pull us out of a mind rut. And sometimes, a mixed-up quote is even better. The other day I went to a local drugstore to pick up a few things. The drugstore recently changed its reward card program, mistyping my email address into the Read More

During a conversation with Michael the other day, we touched on manifesting our goals and the power of thought.

Have you ever thought about someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, and within days you receive a call from that person?

  Trash Day and Buddha I took my trash to the landfill drop-off point near my home this morning – a regular Saturday morning chore for me. I like the guys at the drop-off point.

3 Ways to Find Daily Happiness

3 years ago Rosie 0
    Look inside. Many people say, “When I am (blank),” or, “When I have (blank), I will be happy.” They would have better success by changing that statement to, “Now I am happy, and I will have (blank).” Happiness is not created by obtaining items or having successes. They are created and obtained through Read More

I have allowed a long silence to live between posts. January is a time for rejuvenation – a month of newness, and clearing of clutter.

Find your childlike spirit – dream your reality!

Last night’s soup swap was a great success. I marveled at the way the same basic ingredients could be presented in such unique ways. Fall and winter vegetables teamed up with lentils and beans in many dishes, but each had its own flavor and texture. A “golden” ladle was given to the soup voted as Read More
