Quotes of the day... 12/26/14

How did the rose ever open its heart 
and give to this world all of its beauty? 
It felt the encouragement of light against its being.
     ~ Hafiz

The more we give, the more we get.

The fewer grievances we have, 
the more miracles we can have. 
The best way to prepare for the new year 
is to try to forgive everyone and everything. 
     ~adapted, Marianne Williamson

♥ Merry Christmas! ♥

“It is a miracle if you can find true friends, 
and it is a miracle if you have enough food to eat, 
and it is a miracle if you get to spend your days and evenings 
doing whatever it is you like to do, and the holiday season - 
like all the other seasons - is a good time
not only to tell stories of miracles, 
but to think about the miracles in your own life, 
and to be grateful for them, 
and that's the end of this particular story.” 
     ~ Lemony Snicket

“God bless us, every one!” 
     ~ Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Merry Christmas to all!
I wish you health, wealth,
love, friendship, and happiness ♥

Mia, "I kind of like living in this world."

A letter to Humanity! ~ adapted, Stephen Russell, The Barefoot Doctor

Dear Humanity, things look messy I know, but while you're still here, you're still in the game, and contrary to appearances it's likely all this could be sorted by a simple change of mental air, a new way of seeing, and a willingness to communicate with yourself, to start making friends with yourself again, for all your parts to start making friends with each other again – and it could happen, Humanity, with enough will it could happen – all it needs is for you to love yourself a bit more – love all your bits, let all your bits feel that love and start loving all the other bits and bit by bit, before you know it, you could be back on your feet, with a whole new outlook, approach and atmosphere, and having the time of your life.

And from one of Humanity's bits to another, I say it starts with you and it starts with me – it starts by us allowing ourselves to love being alive even more, and radiating that love, letting it spread like a contagion until it infects every bit of humanity there is.

Let 2015 be the year, Humanity, that we heal with love, and may this festive passage nourish your soul, strengthen your body and resolve, and ready you for the best year of your life so far.

Quotes of the day... 12/24/14

Kindness is a fruit in season at all times
and within reach of every hand.
     ~adapted, Mother Teresa

Blessed is the season which engages
the whole world in a conspiracy of kindness.
     ~adapted, Hamilton Wright Mabie

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
     ~ Calvin Coolidge

Everyone smiles in the same language.

Quotes of the day... 12/22/14

Mentally strong people don't...
     waste time feeling sorry for themselves
     give away their power
     shy away from change
     waste energy on things they can't control
     waste time pleasing others
     fear taking calculated risks
     dwell on the past
     make the same mistakes over and over
     resent other people's success
     give up after failure
     fear alone time
     feel the world owes them anything
~Taken from the following article:

Don't be dismayed or swayed 
by the appearance of things, 
nothing's over till the fat lady sings.
     ~ Stephen Russell, The Barefoot Doctor

Winter Solstice is Sunday, December 21 at 4:03 PM MST (Mountain Standard Time) followed by the New Moon at 6:35 PM MST.

This is a uniquely powerful time and because the solstice and the New Moon fall on the same day, it is truly a time to say goodbye to the old and to anchor something new. We are feeling some new influences sliding in, the most prominent being a focus on wanting to be more creative in life and in everything we do. So in your work with RESPONSIBILITY and OPPORTUNITY, be open to infusing it with creativity and the inspiration that creativity brings. Spend some time imagining outside the box and allowing new ideas and expansive intentions to guide you in writing some new intentions and goals for yourself.

One of the important opportunities of this solstice and new moon is to work on releasing all disappointments, regrets and dissatisfactions from the past year. These energies only hold you hostage and keep you from moving forward into a beautiful transition and new opportunities. So work on releasing the old, whatever it is, and MOVE ON into the NEW. This is such a great chance for a powerful re-set, so don’t waste it , use it! The solstice is always good time to do a ritual around releasing the old.
