Gratitude, Hearts’ Desires, and Awards… Oh, My!

February 4, 2013


Since the very beginning of the month sort of sneaked past me, seemingly without my notice, I thought I would post to archive January’s entries for Project Gratitude as well as doing a bit of admin work in the process.  Namely, accepting – but more importantly – passing along a couple of Blog Awards.  Particularly […]

Peace As A Process

January 14, 2013


I’m low on energy this morning. I was low on energy yesterday too. How can I tell? I can tell by the fact that Ego – that little voice that likes to criticize and nit-pick and complain – is carrying out its business in stentorian style this morning. The messages cascading through my mind are […]

Bloggers For Peace: The Secret to Peace

January 8, 2013


The other day, as I was catching up in this part of the blogosphere that I share with all of you, I happened to come across the blog Everyday Gurus and Kozo’s idea for a network of bloggers to blog about peace in 2013.  I thought this was a GREAT idea!  What better way to […]

Following Our Hearts

January 6, 2013


Approximately 5 years ago, Dh and I began to contemplate his impending retirement from the military.  For nearly 25 years, he had served in one branch of the US military or another.  The lifestyle had become our family’s reality, and the thought that we could do go anywhere in the 50 states that we chose […]

Small Stones: Vigilance

October 30, 2012


Two protectors sit.  Warm beams of light cuts through the chilled air. Ever vigilant, they listen and watch.  Furry heads turning this way and that. The safety of the pack, of hearth and home will be assured. The alpha female feels protected. Loved.

Calm Amidst the Storm

October 29, 2012


Fear. It’s something that has seized hold of all of us at one time or another.  As I mentioned to someone else most recently, I used to be so filled with fear that I had a perpetual knot in my stomach.  I can only look back at that time in my life and wonder how […]

Breaking Free From the Comfort Zone

October 11, 2012


The week, it has been a busy one on this end, on all levels – mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Yesterday was no exception, but today… I am finally being given an opportunity to slow down, recharge, and follow my bliss.  How have I begun it?  By checking in with all of you – my wonderful bloggy […]

Our ‘Salvation’ Through Enchantment

September 28, 2012


As I sat down to write this post, it was my assertion that, despite the advances in our culture, here in the West (predominantly the US because that is my area of experience) we are not an overly happy people.  I did not, however, wish to say so without first checking my facts… Did you […]

Gifts of Life: Autumnal Emotion

September 25, 2012

Comments Off on Gifts of Life: Autumnal Emotion

One thing I’ve noticed is there are times I will get so bogged down with the hustle and bustle of life that I will forget that there is life beyond all the activity… so much beyond it and, if we are willing to slow down and quiet ourselves, we will feel it. With that in […]

Personal Re-Alignment: Happy Friday!

Comments Off on Personal Re-Alignment: Happy Friday!

Friday! It has arrived!  And am I ever relieved? It has been a very busy week here.  One filled with much activity on both the outer and inner realms.  Home life has kept me running.  In some moments, I have felt much like a chicken with its head cut off, but there have been many […]

Happy Friday: We Made It!

Comments Off on Happy Friday: We Made It!

In the past, with Hiccups In Time, I did the research, “listened” to the wise sharings of the “gurus” of the blogosphere and did what I could to make ensure its success. I took the mental approach with it.  Set a posting schedule, even scheduled posts to publish at just the “right” time.  As a […]
