Peace and Contemplation in the Pandemic

I know the pandemic has not been easy for many people and that they have many struggles to contend with.  I feel very fortunate that for me,  this has been a tremendous opportunity to reevaluate exactly what I want to do in the next chapter of my life.

I am in my sixties and have been semi-retired for the past couple of years.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to fully retire or continue working for a while longer.  The issue I was having is that I haven't enjoyed my job for a very long time.  I'm good at it and it was plentiful but very little of it was satisfying and almost all of it was stressful. 

Now, with an almost complete global shut-down, it has given me time to pause and to truly reflect on life.  I am a serious introvert so spending time alone does not bother me.  On the contrary, it is essential for me to maintain my balance.   I didn't realize just how much until we were told to stay in. 

It has been a relief not to be required to be anywhere.  I have had no issues getting food and supplies delivered to my home.  As a matter of fact, I will probably continue this long after this crisis has passed.  I don't like to shop and this has been such a great way to get everything I need.

My daughters have worried that I might become too much of a hermit, but it truly is my happy place.  I have so many projects that keep me busy so I am never bored and have enough interaction with my family and friends that I don't feel lonely.  Isolation is just not an issue for me.  If anything, it has given me a chance to catch my breath and take time just for me.

Now, with the world slowly reopening, I have to think about what I want to do going forward.  What I do know, is that whatever it is, it will have to be what makes me happy.  Nothing else will do!

Precious Pennies From Heaven

This week was my mother's birthday.   She would have been 97 years old and I'm sure she would have been incredible at that age.

When I was growing up, she always taught me to trust in the universe. She would say "you will get pennies from heaven, just when you need them".

After she passed away, I started seeing pennies everywhere. There were always 2, even when something cost 99 cents, I would receive 2 pennies change.

I always felt like she was close to me in those moments and that it was her way of saying hello.  

Today as I was moving out of my apartment, I was checking to make sure I didn't leave anything behind and what did I find but 2 pennies.  They were at the very back of an unused shelf and instantly I knew mom was with me.

What a beautiful and loving reminder of a lesson so long ago.

What am I Attracting

I love when I hear a message in a way that I've never really heard it before.  I know it means something has changed and I have gained a new vantage point.

After studying the Law of Attraction for many years, I understand the concept of like attracts like, and that what we send out vibrationally will come back to us.

What felt new to me was the true sense of attracting what is coming into my experience.  That at this exact moment in time, what is showing up in my life is because of what I am thinking and feeling.

It's wonderful to think about manifesting your desires, creating your future and allowing the goodness we so desperately want, but none of that can happen if we aren't in a place to attract those very things.

It's not easy but it is very simple - if I can learn to focus my thoughts into a better feeling place, then there will be a better outcome in my circumstances.

I have to ask myself, what am I attracting?

Magic in the New Year

I love new beginnings, so full of hope and promise.

Every step I take on this path has been perfect and always leads me to the next best place.

Today, I was inspired to open my magic box of treasures.  I don't remember how long ago I created this but it contains some of my fondest memories and most beautiful dreams.

As I looked through the precious contents, I realized just how many of these wishes have already come true and I feel tremendous gratitude and appreciation.

Now, looking forward to this brand new year, I will make more memories and cherish every one - knowing that they will become part of the magical treasure box that is my life.

Happy New Year!
