Gratitude, Sand and Solitude

20140912_165916

Gratitude.  Thankfulness.  Abundance.  I felt all of these as I stood alone but for a seagull searching for supper a few feet away (later joined by Alfred, in the picture). The incoming tide crept towards me cooling the sand still warm from an unusually hot September day. Still and centred, I felt at one with the Universe which had again delivered the ‘Or better …’ In my last post I mentioned Dolphin Cottage and it was as delightful as it […] Read more »

Dr Dain And The Dolphins

How can it get any better than this?” is the new buzz phrase on the block, so I thought I’d give it a try.    Dr Dain Heer’s my new ‘Go To” guru and I’m lovin’ him and his insights.   Why so?  In the words of the late Max Bygraves, “I wanna tell you a story”. Every now and again, the Cancerian in me finds expression and I’ve been yearning to be near the sea.  If that sea was a […] Read more »

Is Gratitude Your Attitude?

This morning I caught myself engaging in a little ‘mental moaning’. I was in the shower but not my warm, welcoming womb-like cubicle where I seem to do my best thinking but rather the over-the-bath version with plastic shower curtain.  Why?  The cubicle’s sprung a leak – again – and there’s a notice in there saying ‘under repair’. Husband in ‘inaction’ and I realise this could be a protracted affair.  It was last time. Under the best that the water […] Read more »

In Celebration Of Ourselves

stones

I’m amazed.  I’m thankful.  I’m grateful.  Are you? You see, I spent most of yesterday lying flat and thinking.  Lying flat because I’d had cerebral spinal fluid drained off to reduce the pressure within my skull.  Thankful because although the pressure was over 100% higher than it should have been, my body continued to function, maintaining my mental acuity.  (Here I admit to being told I’ve been a bit picky recently but, being Cancerian, I prefer to think it was […] Read more »

Life-Changing Lift Off!

Rocketandme

Realising I was realising a dream without really realising it, if you’re still with me, was exciting.  In pursuing the opportunities Life offered, I’d unconsciously adjusted my default setting to travel which thrills me and is on my Universal wishlist.  My Mother said we had a little gypsy in our souls and so we do. Just nine days after the Venice venture, I was off to Orlando for a conference.  Weather was comfortably warm and humidity low – I always find that a […] Read more »

Venice Dream Delivered. . .

Gondola

 Isn’t it wonderful when someone’s dream comes true especially when, with a little help from the ever-abundant Universe, you helped make it a reality?  So it was with our trip to Venice.  Daughter had longed to go there and I’d thought it’d be lovely to mark her 21st birthday by whisking her away as a surprise.  Piggy bank problems prevented planning but, deep inside, I held the thought.   I’m comfortable with 11th hour, 59th minute and 59th second solutions so, just a week before […] Read more »
