Turning the Page

 

 

This is the final Friday of 2013. The hustle and bustle is reaching a peak, having moved through Thanksgiving with gratitude and food, Hanukkah with glowing lights and 8 sweet nights, Christmas with the birth of a guiding Soul here on Earth, entering into Kwanzaa with culture, community and unity and finally New Year’s Eve and a chance to believe that life can be even more magical.

Like many people, I become nostalgic, gazing over my shoulder at the highs and lows of the year about to close. 2013 brought me the birth of my radio show called It’s All About Relationships and with it, the delight of interviewing movers and shakers in transformational fields, many more writing venues with which to share the riches with which The Muse has graced me, standing before folks in faith congregations and wellness communities….living my professional dream. I have welcomed into my life, wondrous souls who have become part of my treasure collection. Some I have encountered face to face, heart to heart and hug to hug and some via the marvels of modern technology and the phenom of Facebook, but no less dear to me. I have embarked on inner journeys the likes of which I had trembled in fear to contemplate, facing down my demons and inner critic that snarled, roared and howled from behind boulders.

When all is said and done, they weren’t as fierce as they first appeared. They never are. It is my vivid imagination that deludes me into thinking they will obliterate me. It is when I can see them for what they are…..those unloved and orphaned aspects of myself clamoring for attention, then they have no power over me. Sometimes hard to embrace someone who is attempting to bite off body parts in the process.

I am grateful to be on the flip side of several health issues that had toppled me for a bit and were wake up calls for improved self care. Focusing on calling into my life all I dream and desire for 2014. Tonight, I will be getting together with a friend and creating a Vision Board that will allow me to turn the page into a new day, new year, new wondrous life!

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,

Hot Air Balloon
Recently I was speaking with someone about the things that weigh us down, like a hot air balloon tethered to the ground with heavy rope, spiked into the dirt, sandbags reinforcing them.  Self deprecation, limiting beliefs, old worn out ideas that no longer serve, all of the shoulda /woulda/ coulda
