Ah..Yes.. the most “wonderful” time of year bringing out every emotion known to folks in the USA…from genuine goodwill to snapping anger. I have the pleasure of working at a very busy kiosk serving cups of happiness for a well known, well loved and well hated coffee company in a “destination” mall.
I love my job…..most of the time.
From now until January I will easily get my 10k steps in even though I don’t have a Fitbit to prove it. I will hustle and breathe deep as I wait on one person after another after another after another……
My intention for this holiday season is to be kind, patient and fast because most are stressed and in a hurry. Many will have loved ones pushing their buttons, financial and/or health concerns or the aching longing of connection. Others that love this time of year grinning ear to ear. And let’s not forget the children, teenagers and grumpy old men.
I intend to make memorable moments for people as they pass through the NEVER ENDING line………..
Wish me luck!
May you have many Thanks to count..I sure know I do
To you my dear readers I give my heartfelt thank you for reading my words…
May your holiday time be filled with moments of pure joy
Happy Love Day!
Are you showing love to yourself?
Are you showing love to others?
Are you sad you are alone?
Are you rejoicing you are alone?
Are you sad you are with someone?
Are you rejoicing you are with someone?
This day creates stress for some, sadness for others, annoyance for many and some love this day
Where do you fall?
I’ve experienced all of the above
I bet you could say the same…from kindergarten to now I betcha you have experienced quite a few yourself
Some not so much….
Today mine has been spectacular and I hope yours is also!
Today’s photo are the tulips I bought myself to show my love to me….something I hope you show yourself…
And let the magic of being your own best friend rock your world!
If you’d like to work with me let me know…
Anything from sending you Reiki to going deep into your Divine Soul Blueprint to meeting your Spirit Guides or perhaps you want to talk to a deceased love one…it’s all about you……
So I’m curious dear readers do you ever have pity parties?
I do…..often throughout my life time with the same themes…woe is me unwanted, unappreciated, disrespected, used, betrayed……
And then the wild hair pops up……..
Action to make my life mine…..
Off I go on an adventure…
Will I sell my house and buy a small camper to roam the USA turning people on to Reiki…
Will I dye my hair some funky color…….
The past wild hairs have ranged from….
buying a plane ticket one way to Florida on a whim…..mmm…that was almost 40 years ago…it stuck
Another was to move St. Croix with a one night stand 48 hours knowing him….oh the stories and journey that took me on….and no that didn’t stick
So what about you dear readers…do you get the wild hair?
And how do you handle it?
Does it result in OMG..BEST DECISION EVER!!!!!!
Does it result in WTF..WORST EFFING DECISION EVER!!!!
Or somewhere in between cause your wild hair is never THAT wild
Here I sit with my dog glued to my side. I have the fortune to live in a waterfront neighborhood.
Which means on 4th of July my dog stays glued to my side a nervous wreck because he thinks we live in a war zone.
Fireworks have been going off for several hours from every direction. I’m sure they are beautiful and bringing joy to a lot of folks…..
But not to my dog
It’s temporary…he’ll live…he just wants it to stop…
And it will.
And how fortunate we live in such a great country…that the war zones sounds are fireworks celebrating our freedom
Happy Birthday America
Back in February I switched my WordPress free account to paid account. So happy I did! My favorite bonus of paid account is the one on one scheduled sessions with a happiness engineer. I have learned so much and been patiently guided to get the maximum benefits offered with my paid plan.
One of which is my own domain name. Ynotlove.com was already taken…the person helping me told me to take my time..it’s a big decision.
my soul purpose for being born this lifetime is to heal others
I heal others in so many ways…
As a hospice volunteer offering everything from Reiki to a listening ear
As a barista greeting you with your name and a smile as you order your cup of happiness
As a Reiki master sending, giving, and teaching the wonderful energy of Reiki
and so many other ways in my daily life.
that is how my domain site came to be…my deepest soul desire is to heal many.
Where does time go….mine disappears sweetly as I follow my “now” through out the day.
Each day is a bit different as I perform my various roles…barista, Hospice volunteer, Reiki practitioner, pet owner, home owner, neighbor, friend, sister, daughter, niece, aunt, godmother and oh yeah…blogger!
I can’t believe the last time I posted was before Thanksgiving kicked off the holiday craziness.
I had a fabulous time embodying the Christmas Spirit this year spending time with family for the first time in years.
New Years and January zipped by!
Did you set any resolutions you’ve abandoned already? I used to then I switched to a theme for the year.
The theme for 2018 is “Inspired Action” which has kept me quite busy….I’ve been very inspired the past 4 weeks to do everything BUT write.
Seems like that has changed tonight……
Emotions. I feel mine. I don’t ignore them. This evening I am dancing with anger. I feel it to my core…deep, deep within. I find it humorous when anger is raging through my body, thoughts and energy field I get so much done! Anger spurs me into constructive action as I gain years this lifetime. When I was younger anger led to destruction…. I bet I’m not the only one.
Meditation taught me to be an observer of myself. I watch the anger release and float away replaced with thoughts of peace, gratitude and love
I came up with the name of my blog Ynotlove because I love so many things! I have a million ideas to write about!
My resistance is actually writing them down instead of letting them float in my head. I signed up for a 2 week class from WordPress to create good habits and a blog worth reading. I sure hope I follow through.
My first assignment is to say why I’m blogging and what about. I’ll be sharing experiences I love, books that enlightened me, people who inspire me, emotions that move me…the possibilities are endless. And I hope you dear reader are curious to see what my latest love is.
The why is Y not? I love to write.
