"We traverse the world in search of happiness...yet a contented mind brings happiness to us all" Horace


Evaluating my circumstances in my life, I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to be more confident and reliable to me. Why is it so much easier for me to be those things for someone else, but when it comes to my own accomplishments and goals, I can’t? I watched a Suzy Orman program on PBS the other night and she gave some great examples on how to be a powerful woman. I want a lot of things, it seems like when you hit your thirties, you want more financial security, freedom, and peace in your life, you seem to buckle down with a true plan, I‘m at the beginning of that plan. The everyday crap that accumulates don’t seem to matter anymore, the drama from friends or family doesn‘t seem to matter as much. I want a simple life, without the malarkey that seems to trap itself into my life.
I have started this creative change, in hopes to creatively change the circumstances in my life. Nothing seems to be changing, what the heck am I doing wrong? Is this just a rough patch that will disperse in time?
I have so many things that need fixing in my life, it is hard to buckle down and get started. Responsibility in finances, my health, my weight, and just plain old living keep fracturing off into these doubts that I am baffled by. Why am I procrastinating my own happiness? I have good goals for myself, ones that I am fully confident that I am going to meet, but why am I so fearful of that happiness that I want and desire? Why do I fearfully fret about things that I shouldn’t fret about? Why do I let things go to shit when things suddenly go start going right? These questions and so many more plaque me and I’m not exactly sure what my path to success should be. I so, admire these strong women that I see, who are accomplishing long term goals and being successful. I want that for myself, is that being selfish? Why am I being lazy about accomplishing my goals or even cleaning up my environment?
I started this Creative Change in hope of giving myself some inspiration, to declutter my mind, body, and soul, but for some reason I am not feeling at peace with it. Maybe, this is just a trial period, I have no idea.
The eight qualities that Suzy Orman advises all of us on to become powerful women:
1. Harmony
2. Balance
3. Courage
4. Generosity
5. Happiness
6. Cleanliness
7. Beauty
8. Wisdom

I posted some pictures that my friend Amber took with her Camera at our girls night out.

Me with a bowling ball...

Amber and I

The glowing Arms!

Sunday Serenity #23

I find friends a source of peace for me. At different times in my life different ones have been there to listen, be a shoulder, or to tell me something bluntly and kindly when I needed to know something. I have few close friends, Joy (my sister and friend), Vickie (my sister and friends), Amber Dawn, Amber Lou, and Amber May who are the best girlfriends ever and Monte who is a good guy friend... I am blessed.

Writing One's Story

I get a newsletter from Goddess.com and they gave suggestions on writing one's life story. I liked the suggestions, because some of them have been illustrated in many of the books I have or am reading. Blogging is my way of sharing my thoughts and story with family, friends, and strangers, in our time, it is easier to do this with a blog. Blogging is a great way to communicate, though some of us were not blessed with the skills of a professional writer. Does that truly matter? Expressing ones heart is a difficult task to do in person, but writing it out, helps a lot. I do not express my emotions well in person, but I sure can get it out with pen and paper, or more likely computer and keypad. I have a talented writter in my family, maybe even some friends, but we are all different, have different voices, different inspirations, way so of looking at things, and that is what th tapestry of life is truly about. Freely, sharing our own talents and appreciating ours and others in this wonderous world we live in. Anyway, here are the suggestions: I do a couple of them already...

Begin writing your life story... There is no doubt that you would have life lessons to share that perhaps you aren't consciously aware of. There are several approaches you can take, even if you don't consider yourself a "writer"...
Write a short story about yourself in the third person, making yourself the heroine of the amazing adventure that has been your life so far;
Write short journal entries before you go to sleep every night, focussing on the "best thing that happened to me today";
Release any residual pain surrounding old injuries by rewriting the story with a new outcome;
Start a gratitude journal and record every little thing that makes you go mmmmmm.

Ring Finger

I took this silly quis for the fun of it. I don't see myself as a romantic person, but somehow they got that impression by the answers I gave.

You Are a Ring Finger

You are romantic, expressive, and hopeful. You see the best in everything.

You are very artistic, and you see the world as your canvas. You are also drawn to the written word.

Inventive and unique, you are often away in your own inner world.

You get along well with: The Pinky

Stay away from: The Index Finger
