Outside my window...it is dark. I'm up way too late again.
I am wearing...jeans and a long sleeve tee shirt, but I should be wearing jammies!
I am thinking...about an impending event that I am dreading. But you know something...I didn't cause it, it isn't my fault, and I there is nothing I can even to do change it. I just have to push through it when it gets here and help my family do the same.
I am thankful for...for this spiritual awakening and new spiritual path I have found. It's taken me nearly 16 years to get to this point, but I am thankful for that and the fact that I am learning more and feeling wiser and more empowered every day.
From the kitchen...well, it's too late for that...
I am creating...HA! Well, the story there is this: I am not going to be able to digitally scrap for a while. I have to do some things with my files, hopefully to help out the computer. I hope to get back to it soon...but I'm not sure if or when I would get to make the next desktop! I hope it doesn't come to that!
I am reading...The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
From the learning rooms...well, I rediscovered StumbleUpon.com and have been searching things about yoga and spiritually. Oh, and vegetarian cooking.
I am hoping... for continued positive changes! Not hoping... expecting!
I am hearing...the fan, the TV, and my husband walking around upstairs.
I am going...to have faith and know that everything happens for a reason. Everything has it's purpose. I only have the ability to control myself, so that's all I need to worry about.
Around the house...well, I need to vacuum AGAIN (thanks to the freaking dog), and more laundry. A few dishes. Other than that, reading and researching!
I am remembering..."When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." -Lao Tzu Also, a bit of a change would be "When I let go of what is, I see what might be"!
Quote to commit to memory... "A bend in the road is not the end of the road...unless you fail to make the turn" ~Unknown
A few plans for the week...well, house work! I will keep up with my every-other-day Pilates schedule (two days so far!!!) and definitely read read read!
On of my favorite things...being lazy with my hubby on his day off.
Photo for Thought... isn't this a beautiful Mandala? Well, aside from being beautiful, I've learned it is also for meditation! "Mandala" is a Sanskrit word meaning circle or completion and it is simply a concentric or geometric image used in meditation. This use began in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, but anyone can use a mandala for any type of meditation! I thought this one was particularly beautiful! The image is linked to the store in which you can buy a print...this mandala is Colseaword Mandala No.3 by the artist Alaya Gadeh. Hope you like it!
