Who Knew…..

You step into a new adventure and you think some things will be OK and others  will take some getting use to, but who knew…

Who knew that after 8 years of restricted access the transition to full access would be so easy?

Who knew that when you start a new part of your life’s journey the old part of the journey becomes almost surreal?

Who knew that the power of suggestion is so strong that living the reality you imagined for so many years is very comfortable?

I’ll share with you some people who know:

Newlyweds that didn’t shack up first.  Married life is such a different mind set from single life.

New parents.  That little bundle is all consuming.

People who have experienced a major life change through no choice of their own.  Sometimes the change is mostly good and sometimes it brings you to your knees.

Life is only about change.  The oils I use to keep balanced are Valor, Joy, and Harmony.  I embrace all of life’s experiences affirming I am safe, it is only change.

 

 



Sharing a Smile

**********What An Ugly Duck…My husband was waterskiing when he fell into the river. As the boat ?circled to pick him up, he noticed a hunter sitting in a duck boat in the reeds. My husband put his hands in the air and joked, “Don’t shoot!”

The hunter responded, “Don’t quack.”  Katie O’Connell, Warrenville, IL

**********No Such Thing As A Free Yacht….A salesman talked my uncle into buying 10,000 personalized pens for his business with the promise that he would be eligible to win a 32-foot yacht. A born gambler, my uncle agreed.

Well, he won, and a few weeks after the pens arrived, his prize showed up: a 12-inch plastic yacht with 32 plastic feet glued to the bottom.            Eddie Edwards, Ripley, TN

*********Eye Candy…..On vacation my nine-year-old son, Ryan, and I were at the pool, where two attractive young women wearing thong bikinis were sunning themselves. I noticed that Ryan kept staring at them, but he would occasionally glance back at me.

When they got up to leave, Ryan watched them particularly closely. I was bracing myself for questions he might have when he turned to me and whispered, “Dad, can I take that candy bar those girls left behind?”

**********Pizza Perils….A Twitter exchange between an angry customer and an apologetic Domino’s Pizza:

Customer: Yoooo I ordered a Pizza & Came with no Toppings on it or anything, Its Just Bread

Domino’s: We’re sorry to hear about this!

Customer (minutes later): Never mind, I opened the pizza upside down :/

*********New and Improved Names for Boring Everyday Things….

• Couch = People Shelf

• Books = Manual Films

• Bracelets = Clockless Watches

• Air Horn = Spray Scream

• Bottled Water = Snowman Blood

• Feather = Bird Leaf          From sliptalk.com

*********Good English…My ESL students try so hard and are so appreciative. One student paid me the ultimate compliment when she said, “You teach English good.” Another assured me, “I will always forget you.” And a third insisted, “I thank you from the heart of my bottom.”               Ellen Israel, Alamo, CA

*****True Love Story*******

I was 24 years old when I moved to Long Beach, California, where my parents managed the Alberta Apartments. I arrived the day after Thanksgiving 1947, and while I was moving in, I ran into four girls from Montana who were also living there.

One of the girls immediately caught my eye, and I knew I had to introduce myself. Her name was Alice Conlon and she was on her way to the library to return a book.

Not wanting to let this opportunity pass me by, I fibbed and told her I’d been wanting to read the same book, and asked if I could join her. She agreed, and we stopped for a drink afterward. Before long, I knew she was the one for me!

Between the library and the bar, I’d picked up an alarm clock so I wouldn’t be late for my first day of work the next morning. It started to get late, so I set my new alarm for 30 minutes to remind me that I needed to leave the bar soon. Well, I set the alarm several more times; I just wasn’t ready to end our first date.

A year later we were married—on Thanksgiving Day. We enjoyed 56 wonderful years of marriage before the love of my life passed away in 2005. I miss her every day.

*************Enjoy the life you have created**********

 

 



Allow Them to Find Their Wings

A metaphor  to see how we can allow others to find their wings. I believe that we can apply these lessons to all relationships.

The Bald Eagle

A bald eagle egg is slightly smaller than a domestic goose egg. The chick will measure 4 to 5 inches at hatching and weigh only a matter of ounces.

Sometimes the adults will force the eaglets to fly. When chicks leave the nest they usually glide to a nearby tree or stump, returning to the nest tree frequently and continuing to be fed by the adults.  Eaglets will stay close to the nest and nest tree during the first few weeks after fledging. Within one month after fledging, eaglets will soar and drift over the water.

Chicks Leaving the Nest

As the chicks develop their flight skills they harass the adults and try to take fish from them. This behavior helps eaglets learn to forage and be independent and will last into September. At 17 to 23 weeks of age, the bond between the adults and their young fades and the adults no longer tolerate harassment from their offspring. This is time when the young eagles leave the territory, following the prevailing winds to more northerly shorelines and water bodies in search of good feeding grounds.

Youth to Adult-Mortality rate is 50%

The young eagle will spend the next 4 years of its life wandering across eastern North America looking for summering and wintering areas where food is accessible.  When it begins to mature at age 4, an eagle seeks a mate and establishes a territory. The territory is usually located within 250 miles of the nest where the eagle was hatched.  (Taken from the Fish & Wildlife.gov site)

When setting boundaries the oil of Clarity helps us see what to do.  We then  stand back and allow the wings to develop. Our Believe oil is a good support for this step.  When they soar the beautiful oil of Joy sweetens the  journey.



This Is Quite the Journey

The day was incredible.  I watched him face each challenge with calm assurance and it was humbling. I observed him interacting with the customer service reps with respect and dignity. The greatest miracle of the day was when he was told to, “..walk over to that truck and say Hi to your brother.”  I’ll never forget that moment.  It only took 27 years for this man to realize how much he is loved and how great he is. I am in awe of this man, my son.

The oils of the day were Valor, Joy, and Harmony.  These oils kept me grounded and didn’t overwhelm him.



Keeping Focus When We Are Wanting to Go Into Chaos

Darren Daily is always demanding us to keep on keeping on.  It is a game changer for the DD community. The message on September 13th was about the changing times in business, in relationships, and in life in general.  He suggested action steps and gave us works sheets. (That’s what makes it easy to implement his ideas. That and the fact the DD team is doing all this stuff too.)

Sign up and see if you are ready for what it takes to play in the biggest game of all-Life.

My essential oil that keeps me going today it is BELIEVE.



Amazing Accomplishment

The Space Shuttle Endeavor was our exploration journey recently.  Some of the engineers who worked on these various space projects are friends. When you see what can be accomplished with cooperation it is inspiring.

What does life hold for us as we cooperate with our neighbors to create all of our dreams? Synergy is the key.  “The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects”.
synonyms: cooperative interaction, cooperation, combined effort, give and take

As I watched the videos, read the facts, enjoyed the iMax Space movie I was glad to live in this era of infinite possibilities.

To become the change we want in the world we need to be vulnerable and engage our neighbor.

The essential oils that support me as I reach out are: Valor, Believe, and Gratitude.

Who in your circle will join you on this path?



The Day Is Here

The completion of 8 years happens today.  It is the dawn of new beginnings. A new day with a new journey which we will share together. It starts with no fanfare, no media, no noise makers, balloons or cake and ice cream.  It starts with tears.

This day will be marked with tears. Tears of such deep gratitude words are inadequate.   Tears that declare:  This is a day of birth, a day of major change, a day of building, a day that is actually the greatest day of our lives thus far.

This day contains unlimited opportunities after a time of so little opportunities.  This day has unlimited hugs after a time of no hugs.  This day has unlimited choices after a time of limited choices. This day is a treasure and a gift.  I will honor this day forever because you have done the necessary things to make sure this was a day of celebration.

I will rejoice in this day. The gratefulness and joy we feel today will be fed everyday so that our lives abound more and more in joy.

What is one thing you do to make sure you abound in joy?

My essential oils for today, Grounding, Joy, Valor, Harmony, and Gratitude.

Today

We are guaranteed that today we are one day closer to a goal, one day closer to death, one day closer to the week end, one day closer to ….

What will you decide to make this day?  It is your gift to others this day or it is nothing but you not being aware of the infinite possibilities around you.

May I suggest you set a timer and for 5 minutes close your eyes as you breath deeply into the beauty you can create.  See the peace you create because you are at peace with your body, your thoughts, your environment, your family and take that peace with you.

A good tapping script for this 5 minutes, just on the side of your hand is;

Even though I feel _____ I totally love and accept myself and the peace I am and share.

Do this at least three rounds and more if you want.  You can add to or take away from the script.  The important thing is to program your brain for the day you want to create.

Share with us how that set you up for a different type of day.  You can do this through out the day.

My oil for this is Clarity to keep my thoughts directed to being a peace carrier.



Wonderful Fellowhip

Last night we had a miracle evening of good food, stimulating conversation and fun.  There was one 50ish couple, 2 long time divorcees, 1 long time widow  and a young man in his 3os.

The dinner was the reason we came together but the fellowship was the reason the evening was such a huge success.  Each one has weathered life well.  They have created their own slice of heaven on earth and live their christian values.  The ages ranged from 31 to 79 and there was no generation gap.  Some of us  have have known each other over 40 years except for the youngest who has been here 2 years.

It is times like this that I give awesome thanks for the values that bind me to my friends. My oil is Gratitude.

Share with us an evening that was a memory you will cherish for a long time.
