On My Top Shelf
what about yours?

On the tippy top shelf I uncovered this collection of wishbones from happy meals over the past 2 years!
What am I going to do about it? I am going to stop packing, moving, fussing and bustling with Michael comes home. I will give him a big hug and a kiss and pour us each a glass of something celebratory then invite him to make a wish with me.

Whoever "wins" the pull -- "we" win. That is how Love works.

Your turn. Click on "Comments" below and tell us about what you found on your top shelf. Then, if you wish, you can e-mail me your photo to add in. Send it to:

Just smile and get along.

That is what I am going to do for the next week and then some. Why? Because we are in the process of a "move." Sometimes - like NOW - you just need to agree to leave each alone and ... just smile and get along.

Does this apply to your situation? Can you put your opinion of how things should be aside and ... just smile and get along?

Love, boundaries and everything in between ...

The honey in the flower or lotus does not crave for bees; they do not plead with the bees to come. Since they have tasted the sweetness, they themselves search for the flowers and rush in. They come because of the attachment between themselves and sweetness. So, too, is the relationship between the woman who knows the limits and the respect she evokes.
--Sai Baba

Thanks to Asante for sharing this with me this morning! Just the kind of thought I need to plant in my mind and heart today. -Viveca

Say what you mean, but don't say it mean.

I used to be such a people pleaser. The evil twin of people pleasing also begins with a "P." It's called passive aggression! This is where I'd be so fed up and worn out that I would say what I meant and it would be mean, mean, mean. Can you relate?

To say what I mean without saying it mean requires more participation from me. I actually have to stop myself from over-extending and over-doing. I have to tell my husband when I need help - want to be treated to dinner - need a kiss - want a bouquet of flowers. I have to treat him like an equal vs. like a superman who can read my mind and see right through me ... sing it!

I am getting used to it - being real - I like it better. So does he.

Where is Love?

Sometimes you get the oddest signs that Love is about to show up --

any minute. Trust them.

How to Meet New People Without Leaving the House

You know I recommend Irish Penpals as a means to make a new friend of either sex. It's free, and the friend you make doesn't have to be Irish. The site boasts members from all over the world. But another site that caught my attention is TUT's Village, from Mike Dooley, who calls it a spiritual community for friends ...

Come To Your Senses: Part II

What are your dominate senses? What colors, scents, sounds, tastes & textures energize you the most? When you feel alive on the inside you have more to share on the outside.

Mine are hearing and smell. So - I do a lot with essence oils, music and audio books.

I dab Lavender or Jasmine oil on my collar, turtleneck, scarf – on whatever is under my nose! These scents keep me centered and peaceful out “there.” On the sensual side I love my Ylang Ylang and Patchouli ... I pick myself UP in the afternoons with a splash of Peppermint in my foot lotion ...

I listen to Chopin or Bach or Mozart while working to keep my energy and concentration on HIGH and listen in to "Books on CD" while cooking or cleaning. Then there is my collection of
comedy cds for LOL time ...

What about you?
