As we have moved into the month of November I am feeling so many different feelings. First coming into the Holidays. Remorse for my parents not being here. I miss them dearly every day but Holidays are so empty without them. I always take time to think back about family holiday time and smile and cry.

From the picture above  you can see I am missing my BFF and the beach. I really wish we could go to our favorite spot this time of year just once. Visit when there is less hussle and bussle. Less People. Maybe someday. I really do hope to someday be living there. So when I need my solitude I can walk to the beach and walk and walk and collect my thoughts. Regenerate. I always feel so good and relaxed at the beach. Like I belong there. I don't feel like I belong here at all. Ever. Not even when I am spending time with sister and her family. There is always that sense something is missing. But truthfully I think I have always felt like I didn't belong anywhere. Growing up, in my marriage, and even now. I don't feel that at the beach. Maybe that is why I crave it so much. I need to get past my fears and just move.

It's cold here in Iowa this morning. No snow just brisk cold air. No sun yet. It's early. I am just sitting here with my coffee reflecting. Feeling all kinds of emotions. I think i am going to throw on a jacket and take a short walk. Walks sooth my soul. Even when not at the beach.

Happy Tuesday!!!

Everything ....


Shake it off, dust it down, if you have the Monday heavy's look at it the bright way, the right way, its time to get your self in gear, make space to think about you whether you are working or at home, there is space, space in your head and in your life for you, no children for a while, no partners, no friends demanding on you, the demands are clearly still their but recognise the difference, recognise that its more than likely that the emotionally tied demand is absent for a while, what ever you are doing, look at the difference that a weekday makes and make it count, treasure the mundane for it will give you a kind of restful peace, honour the pressure of work for there is a flip side to that too, perhaps it invigorates another part of you, how do you see it ?

Words of Wisdom

Good Times

This reminds me of a gathering for the weekend. With my sister, my niece, and my best friend. Sharing laughter, good food, good times, and just being in the moment. Cuddling up to the fireplace hot cocoa good conversation. I love this picture.

What does it make you think of?

It has been a Long time

I really need to come back here and get back on track. I enjoy having my blog. Even if I just use it for posting inspirational photos, quotes, and other things of that nature. I like to share things that inspire me. This is the perfect place if anyone ever actually comes here.  And gets even some little thing from the words I put here to share. If you do stop by please leave a comment or add me or something. I like when others share of themselves. And I hope to share more of myself in the coming months. Blogging has always been therapy for me. What works for you?

I love this picture above. The beauty. The garden I wish I had. The stone steps. It's awesome.

Have a great Friday and a enjoy your weekend to the fullest.
