Yellow is my favorite color. I also love flowers, cats, big hugs, flip flops, sweater boots, and lots of action and adventure. I like to be around happy people, funny jokes, and nature. I realize that I REALLY am enthralled with using my senses and experiencing anything that has to do with taste, touch, sound, smell, and anything visual. I like to be and feel stimulated in some essence at every moment in time. This idea of slowing down, being mindful and in the moment has taken a whole new meaning and is showing me how to be able to create my own sunshine instead of waiting for it...
Talking about the weather…. Super boring but I guess conversational in the elevator?…. The weather is often associated with how we are feeling, so I guess that is why we talk about the weather so much… not sure. I know conversation is a sign of being pleasant but I am kinda over it. I have been in observation mode for a while now and realize that I have the power to create my own sunshine. Yes I am that powerful. WE are that powerful. Instead of talking about the weather why not create days and nights and weeks and months and years and relationships and atmospheres that FEEL like sunshine?! I am officially tuning out any negative nancy's and dumb a++ comments including ones that might come out of my mouth. :) It's all a journey folks it's all a journey and really not that serious. :)
I am definitely in a wacky and expansive and transitional time yet again in my life, but thankful, and yes very thankful that all this contrast in LIFE is pushing me to learn HOW to create my own sunshine. I don’t have it down pat, and I still look to external things to ease my sorrows BUT I feel the tides turning and am so excited to keep going! This whole emotional scale of feel good to doesn’t feel good is really helping. I can’t believe that I lived a life not knowing how to deal with emotions and feelings and living so numb that day to day became the most mundane. Always on the go, and always just going through the motions. My most prized gift to date has got to be learning how to reconnect with myself and really feel and live life. So THANKS to the previous years, and previous peoples, and previous situations that I have experienced to date because it has all lead me to HERE, right now, this very moment that is reality for me.
I am slowly but surely reaching for the sunshine each and every day. I have been graced with a life and some pretty caring and interesting people that surround me each and every day. I maintain a pattern of meditation, healthy eating, exercise, positive thoughts, sleep and relaxation. I look forward to socializing and participating in life nowadays and realize that is part of why we are here. If we are energy all connected and all part of the same then it makes sense that we would want to interact with each other and make life grand! Lifting each other up can sure create the most awesome sunshine.
So today I am declaring a re-birth, figured I was being religiously appropriate to some extent. :) I have talked about being excited for the 2nd half of my life and this topic of CREATING SUNSHINE put a whole new outlook on what remains to still be seen and experienced in this lifetime. So cheers to sunshine and cheers to OUR sunshine. I wish you the biggest amount of sunshine on those days and seasons that are cloudy or stormy. I can embrace the rain but I still love sunshine the most and it just seems to feed my soul. And so if life…. So thanks to my family who has been through all the seasons and storms together and here is hoping and thinking and wishing that the future feels mostly like SUNSHINE!
