Embracing Change In 2016

I’m not into New Years Resolutions….but I am into Change (my word for the year Chris…Journaling Journey)


I will continue to ride the winds of change. I look foreward to the transformation 2016 will bring. With these transformations, comes an awakening of Spirit. This will open the portals for me to continue to move forward mentally, physically and emotionally.

So, what kind of changes do I foresee for me, myself and I in 2016?!?

  • I will stop procrastinating. Now is the time to take flight. Taking a chance, a risk, is better than waking up one day saying “if only I had”.
  • I will stop doubting myself and standing in my own way. I will start Believing in myself and my capabilities.
  • I will be a friend to myself.
  • Longer Soul Strolls (a must for my Spiritual growth)
  • Pulling up my bootstraps and getting back on the getting fit and healthy band wagon (it’s time!)
  • A promise to myself to ‘listen’ to what my body, my spirit are trying to tell me.

Well, you get the gist of it. It’s a good start.

I also want to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year and Thank You, to all of you, my WP friends/family. The last 5-6 months has been an amazing journey through blog land. Because of  y’all, this experience has turned into an incredible ride and eye opening adventure.

It would be remiss of me to not include a special shout out to Lady Calen (Impromptu Promptlings). Your friendship, your support, and encouragement have been a guiding force on this journey of mine. I’m forever grateful.

The Fascination Of It All……

This weeks installment of The Sandbox Writing Challenge 11 is to write about what fascinates you………I decided instead of just making a list of things that could possibly go on and on and on, I’d just list a few things that jumped out at me when I first read the prompt……

Please forgive me this one…as a rule, I NEVER post anything political, I usually stay away from it. With that said, it’s hard to overlook what’s going on in the political arena these days. It fascinates me to think that our two ‘front’ runners are an accused liar…

….and an egotistical bully….

Really?! I keep waiting to hear Rod Sterling and the opening to The Twilight Zone….

Mother Nature…The Four Elements….and how connected we are to nature…

Dragonflies…..this beautiful little creature  who is associated with water, with air as well as earth…who symbolizes change and renewal…living in the moment, the opening of ones eyes…who always seems to pop up just when I need him/her..


….and last, but certainly not least, my grandchildren…who help me see the wonder and fascination of the world through a child’s eyes once again.
