Your life is in your hands.
How does that feel?
You can change every aspect of your life by your thoughts!
How powerful is that?!
Gently create a clear picture of what you want your life to look like. Imagine all the possibilities, even that there are possibilities. No limits, no boundaries; freedom to experience anything and all. See it in your mind. Your only chains come from there. Your freedom is from your mind. Focus on where you want to go and who you want to be. Decide where to focus in each moment. You create your future by what you are thinking right now. Don’t spend time arguing for your limitations. Make each moment count! There is a silver lining in it all. Find it. The more you practice this (yes, it is exercising the “muscle” of your mind), the better life will get. You will bring even more of the awesome stuff to you…and then more…and then more…etc.
Yes, I believe it is that easy. Create yourself a wonderful day!
Hello sweet girl,
You left Earth yesterday and I thought I would check-in. I really miss you. I know you are doing great and you are right here with us. We feel you every moment. 🙂 I am so happy to have you around. 🙂 I know you are close. I still feel sad sometimes though. I miss your physical presence. You always followed me around and stayed by my side. You were my steady companion no matter what. I truly appreciated who you were in my life. Thank you so much for coming to Earth for me. (15 years) When you were born, I was there to breathe life into your little nose and mouth. Your birth mom did not know how to have puppies and so I was there to assist. It was awesome to start a bond like that between us! You were the very first puppy to enter Earth and the last one to leave. I look forward to when we meet again. 🙂 I promise I will keep my vibration as high as I can so you will visit me often. 🙂 I love you!
I wrote this on Sunday, June 6, 2010 and decided that I wanted to share it again on here. It is bittersweet, but I have experienced so much good since writing it. She was my inspiration. 🙂
It has been quite a ride for the past three months since one of our babies (dogs) got sick with bone cancer. She left earth last week and I am still learning so much from the experience and reflecting on everything through this blog. I have written a poem at the end…
Miss Belle was a sweet, strong, full of life puppy with 12 years of life under her belt and so illness was difficult to fathom at first. She showed no signs of a body decline accept for a limp. We had decided when we heard the news that a good quality of life was going to be our main goal. That was all she had known and we weren’t going to stop it because of an illness. If at any time we saw that she looked unhappy and ready to leave because of this disease, then we would know what to do. She always had a way of communicating with me when I looked into her eyes. I would know what she wanted even if she couldn’t speak with words. When she was born, I was there to breathe life into her little nose and mouth. The birth mom did not know how to have puppies and so I was there to assist. It was awesome and it built up a bond between her and me that I always treasure!
Anyway, we had lots of medicines and regiments that we had to keep up with over the time of her illness. Sometimes this could be very grueling and time consuming. Many sleepless nights contributed to a feeling of chaos and a lack of well-being. However, we had always had a very positive and happy home and we wanted to keep a balance of healthiness in the mix. We felt that Miss Belle was going through this for all five of us (Me, Donny, our other 2 puppy dogs, and herself), even if we didn’t understand why. We couldn’t let any negative thoughts change the good of what we were experiencing. I know that many of you might not understand this, the thought of looking for any good while going through such a harsh family illness with death glooming so close by. For us though, we believed that she was there to bring us joy in each moment and it didn’t matter how bad it felt. She was there to show us life even if tears were flowing down our face. We were all there to co-create the best experience we could find. Life can hurt sometimes, but that is part of the journey. Life is still wonderful and exciting and temporary! I really believe that was her reminder. It can sound twisted, but she was saying, “Enjoy me and life through all of it, you are here to ride the rollercoaster of life and don’t stop being happy! I am happy…this disease is temporary and not really who I am! I am here to show you love no matter what!”
When we decided it was time to let her go, it was really a hard decision to make. Even though we wanted her to start a new journey without illness, we also wanted her to stay here on earth with us and so we wanted to hang on tight and not let her go. In her eyes, I knew though what she was saying, it was time. And, you know what…in the moment that her spirit started to soar; I was holding her in my arms. What a powerful, incredible, life-giving experience! I felt her fly and bounce around like Tigger! I have never felt so much Joy and Happiness than at that moment! She was free and alive and starting on a new journey! She told me,” Mom, be happy and keep smiling about death…it is my birth into a new life and I will see you soon. I can’t talk to you if you stay sad all the time. I am in joy and you have to find me there. I love you!”…and so, Yes, I am smiling about death so that I can truly live in life. I want to BE with and feel my baby girl, Miss Belle, with me…

With Sincere Love,
The Mayan Calendar ends this year. There is something so exciting about that. In theory, it is a brand new world where no future has been established. I have waited all my life for this year. For me, it is a year of transition into a new place and time. I can think and see things that I have never seen before. I can live in a world where my thoughts propel me quickly to exactly where I want to be. I can create and see the results, literally, in an instant. It is amazing to be here and it is so much fun! It isn’t the end, it is just the beginning!
If today was my last day on Earth, how would I choose to communicate with others?
I know this is not a new concept, but it is one that has been rolling around in my head lately. I have been busy with preparations to go on a trip out of the country and must write down directions about our home, our puppydogs, and our business for our family and friends to take care of while we are gone. In the midst of all that, the view of my life has shifted. I am looking at things and asking myself, “If I was not here, how would my twin sister see this?” or “If I was not here, how would my closest friend feel about my reply text or about the fact that I never replied back to the last correspondence they had with me?” “How would it change someone’s life by how I communicated or how I did not communicate with them?” Every moment while we are here on Earth is a new chance to reach out and give a little (or a lot) of our positive selves, the light of who we really are. It doesn’t take much to give.
We live in a busy world and sometimes the days seem to fly by so fast that stopping for even a minute can seem impossible. There is always something more to do. I truly understand that thought process. However, I also understand that my moments here on Earth won’t last forever. If I can stop at least once or twice a day to follow through with positive communication with someone, then I am experiencing life in the greatest possible way. I am being my authentic self and sharing that with someone. It also opens the door for them to be their authentic self. What an awesome gift to give. (I would say that is better than money!)
And so to go back to my original question…..If this was my last day on Earth, how would I live it? What things of which would I fill my time and what words would I let roll off my tongue or my fingers? What actions would I let speak for who I am or of how I want to be remembered?
