Mosaic and Shards

My life is a mosaic of all my experiences. there is no clearing history. Some pieces are shards of broken glass of dreams that have been placed in perfect order so I can be a beautiful masterpiece.

you love those who hate you and hate those who love you. Stop trying to get approval from those who don’t approve and stick with the ones that do.

Go Away

by the Cars:

to the park:

or on a spiritual retreat:

Learning to let our souls rest is vitally important. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28–30that if we are overburdened, weary, and worn out, we should spend time with Him and see how He handled life. He promises to give us rest. The Amplified Bible’s translation of these verses indicates that the type of rest He is talking about is refreshment, renewal and blessed quiet for our souls. Jesus is really offering us a vacation for our souls, our inner lives.

Prayer Starter: Father, I take this moment to offer You all of my stress, worries, and cares. Please refresh my mind and emotions. Help me to run to You when I am weary and worn out from life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. Citing Source:  Joyce Meyer



UPDATE: I was actually sad to hear about Ric and Paulina.

She went that way, he went that way.

I am nervous about calling the music guy at the hotel. I may actually have to go in an audition, which scares me, because that would mean I would have to ask somebody to help me transport the harp. UPDATE: I made the call and left a message.

Remember, every successful person experiences what looks like failure in their life, disappointments and let downs. Some of those people who failed include Thomas Jefferson, Lucille Ball, and Michael Jordan!

So don’t quit today.  Be the one who persists and triumphs. Mary Morrisey

I’m still scared so I did tapping exercise.


this is the second time I have heard this Theodore Roosevelt quote today:

Theodore Roosevelt

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

I guess the universe is trying to tell me something.

My friend is moving Saturday. It’s the end of that era.

Smiling dog, Eden and pondering dog

source:     Apr 7

If words just don’t express it, try:  Eden Sher’s Emotionary.



I went from high school memory, to video, to fantasy, to Cape Cod, to art store, to affair, on a tour, all in one week.  Why don’t we go away:

Getting to Yes workshop tomorrow. Update. Went okay. I can improve.

Tow Your Cat

so, when I was getting out of my bad situation in Denver, I rented a U-Haul, but there was a typo and instead of it saying “Tow your Car, it said “Tow your Cat.”

Trying to find the humor in a situation so it’s not all doom and gloom. Trying to focus on what is right and good.

Aging is like walking through a big house and every decade is a fantastic room. All of them are interesting but once you’re in one you’re not in the other ones anymore. The key is to explore the one you’re in, not try to retrace the ones you left.

Facilitating a Conflict Resolution class on Sunday using Getting to Yes.

  1. If you remember to laugh in the bad times knowing that some good must come out of them, you will see the good.

  2. There are always things we need to know about ourselves. The things you need to know about you are right where you are.

  3. If you want your relationships with other people to be healthy and fulfilling, surrender your expectations and set clear boundaries.

The Cars, anger

Yesterday, I caught up with the Cars.

they were inducted into the rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame.

and it was like high school again, only, it’s not. What can I do today to make a better tomorrow. Harp academy. 

Small Business Administration, start a business? Spirit junkie class? 

Sometimes you can tell I am a Christian; and other times, hypocritical and have the devil in me.  Trying to be better.

yes, I have an anger problem and felt scared and am prideful. But I love and accept myself, set clear boundaries and realize, not everyone needs to bow to my orders. #learning

There is a saying, new level, new devil.  But if I stay stuck and complain and blame others for holding me back, that gets me nowhere.  I can appreciate where I am and what I’ve got while taking baby steps toward a goal and a dream.
