As they say, time sure flies, and boy that is what has been happening with me this year. I have been going through a lot of changes and have been getting caught up in the day to day of life and have been ignoring the blog. I have said it before and I will keep saying it until I get my act in gear and keep up with it. I am sorry and will try better.

Another year of friendship has passed with me and Giselle. And truly, the friendship that has formed between us is very special to me and more important than I would have guessed. They great thing about this year was that we got to spend our friendiversary together.

Feeling Lighter

Well a lot has sure happened in the last month for me. I lost my job as did my daughters boyfriend so in one swell swoop our household lost all of its income. I could totally be freaking out, but I am not. I am taking it one day at a time and trusting that the Universe has my back and all will work out as it should.

In order to get some money we decided to have a yard sale. Yard sales are a lot of work, especially in the 110 to 115 degree heat we have been having, but we all pitched in and did it. IN truth, it was actually kind of exhilarating to me. One of the best things to come from it, aside from the money we earned, was realizing how much decluttering went on to prepare.

Wow! I cannot believe that 2016 is already half over. I apologize for my absence. 2016 has already been quite a ride for me and keeping up with my blog and social media and my spiritual growth and painting and so much has gotten buried in the craziness of life. Not an excuse, and surely not what I want. It just took me a while to realize that was what was happening.

The photo above is one I took in April 2016 when I was hiking along he edge of the Grand Canyon. That was two days after I did some hiking in Sedona, AZ. That was the trip that opened my eyes and my heart to the fact that I had lost myself in the craziness of life, and I knew that I had to snap out of it and get back to what truly fills me wih joy.

Sometimes Darkness Helps You See

I had a bit of a melt down the last few days. It has been building for a while, I think and it finally exploded. I was really down and feeling unappreciated in every aspect of my life. I did a lot of crying and moping.

The weird thing is that even through the tears I was still able to look at nature and smile. It was a strange feeling being able to smile even when I was feeling so down. It was like I was two people, connected but separate with all the emotions flowing through both sides.

Letting Go Or Just Accepting

Sometimes letting go is really more about accepting what was always there. When you belive something is a particular way it certainly helps guide your thoughts and actions. As I am frowing into the true me I am realizing that some things that I am fighting to let go of are really just illusions that I have believed for so long they seem real to me.

The more I fight letting go, the more I see that all I really need to do is accept how things have always been without my rose colored glasses. I am not sure if that makes it easier but it does make me realize that I don”t really need to let go. I guess it is all about my perception.
