Ready...Set...I Win!

Ok...let's see who can stay under water the longest!

No cheating...


"Most of us don’t need a psychiatric therapist as much as a friend to be silly with." ~Robert Brault


Damselfly Resting

I came across this damselfly resting on a rock in a creek. It seems we all need to stop and enjoy the moment. I know how much I enjoyed the light shining on the water and the sound as the water rippled over the rocks. I wonder how it looks through her eyes? Does she notice what I notice?

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." ~Albert Einstein


Just living is not enough...

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."  ~Hans Christian Andersen


Set my mind free

I have been working more than living for a few months now. It has to be done - I get that. But there are things that I miss. Quiet uninteruppted time with my amazing husband. Being completely present in a conversation without my mind thinking of work. Enjoying the little things in life as those are the big things. I miss solitude.

It is time for me to renew my spirit. Time to reflect on what is most important in my life. Time for some solitude.

"I think that I cannot preserve my health and spirits, unless I spend four hours a day at least — and it is commonly more than that — sauntering through the woods and over the hills and fields, absolutely free from all worldly engagements." ~Henry David Thoreau



Time to Ponder

We all need to take time to be thankful for each day and to reflect on the past and on what is to come. Learn to live life to the fullest. Find gratitude in every day. There is always something to be thankful for we just need to slow down long enough to appreciate all the little things in life.

"God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us — in the dreariest and most dreaded moments — can see a possibility of hope." ~Maya Angelou
