Moving Along

Hi All,

02.07.15.DeerJust a quick update to let you know I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth … yet :-) What I’ve decided to do is take up my other blog again.  So if you’d like to follow me there, that would be wonderful. I would welcome that.

Here’s the link: Gina’s Lens on Life 

There’s a small form on the top right to get notifications by email each time I post (you know the drill). I’ll be posting on this blog from time to time but will spend most of my time at the other one. I really like the formatting capabilities there.

Thanks so much! Namaste’

Coffee is My Friend

Coffee cupHubby and I went to breakfast yesterday morning and I absolutely enjoyed one of the best cups of coffee I’ve had in a long time. It was robust, just the right temperature and certainly started my day off right. Coffee is my friend! Namaste’

P.S. Yes, I know I haven’t been blogging for a while. Life has kept me pretty busy and I haven’t felt the passion for it lately, but I’m back and looking forward to catching up with my fellow bloggers. So I’ll dust off my cameras and see you all in the blogosphere :-)


Violin Practice

I thought it might be a good idea to practice my violin today.  Just kidding :-)  I wish I could play this instrument, but maybe in my next life … hehehe!

For all of my American friends and family, have a safe, playful and joyful Independence Day. Fly our flag proudly. Namaste’


Turning Up the Heat

I have no idea what these flowers are because (as I told you before) I am not a botanist. Ha! Isn’t that the truth! I have only one living plant in my whole house … a pothos vine (very hearty, but I do talk to it and thank it for being in my life).

With that said, I believe plants and flowers to be nature’s gifts to all of us. And I seem to be noticing their growth more than usual. Is it the hot weather? Or am I becoming more conscious of growth in general? Nature HAS turned up the heat lately, even here in the Northwest. But I’m also noticing a “newness” about human beings as well. Encounters with most people these days seem to be more patient, kind and compassionate. Maybe it’s because I’ve given myself a permission slip to embrace the interactions I have with others, even the ones that aren’t quite what I’d like them to be. It’s OK. It’s all OK. Each is on her/his own journey and yet I know we are all connected. Namaste’


Something Different Today

I just discovered this site … Plane Finder … and it blew my mind as to the number of planes in the air. Check it out:  Click on any of the planes and you can see what the airline is and more.  Namaste’

P.S. This is my 636th post. I’m still going for 1,000 :-)

I love this and am beginning to really understand the power of these words, I AM.

Originally posted on Follow your Bliss:

“I AM” is a powerful statement.  It’s a declaration that can empower you to create the circumstance you want.  Throughout life I’ve been through a conditioning process that’s created a mind-set of overflowing with I’m NOT… But soon I realized how powerful my words and thoughts were and to overcome this mentality I had to trust my inner world of spirit.

The words I AM, which we use daily to define who we are and what we are capable of, are a holy expression we have to remember to make our very first consideration the honoring of our Divine spirit.  Teach your outer self to accept the unlimited power of your inner spirit and the things you place in your imagination can become true to you.  Affirmations are positive statements intended to create a desired result.  They are tools that you can use to eliminate self-limiting beliefs, to empower yourself…
