Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

Since You Asked…

One of my “phraseologists” has very beautifully described the impact of Radmacher Focus Phrase™ on her life.  I’d love to share it with you.  Even if this doesn’t prompt you to investigate our guided process – perhaps it WILL inspire you to pick up your pen and start looking at your world through the viewfinder of your pen!

Caren Allbers…and her experience with Radmacher Focus Phrase™

came to know Mary Anne Radmacher through her inspirational poems penned
on original artwork posters using her signature style of lettering. 
Everything about Mary Anne is original. 

was a customer for years before she began offering FOCUS PHRASE™ online
writing processes. I knew I was in for a treat, but I could never have
imagined how this amazing process would change how I live my life.

some ways, it has a mystical quality that makes describing it
difficult. How can a phrase, focus, and writing combine to create such
magic in a person’s life? All I can say is it does!  I was hooked immediately.

couldn’t wait to get my new phrases.  The feedback from Mary Anne
encouraged me and I grew as a person and a writer. I was a student for
several years as Mary Anne began publishing her books Lean Forward Into Your Life, Live Boldly and others.

her writing commitments increased and interest in the FOCUS PHRASE™
process grew Mary Anne chose three students whose skill and talent she
believed in to train extensively to offer RADMACHER FOCUS PHRASE™
writing experiences.  I’m very proud to be one of those people.

FOCUS PHRASE™ writing offers A NEW WAY

To explore and learn about yourself

To connect with and trust your own intuition

To develop a daily writing structure

To gain feedback and encouragement on your writing

To ignite your passion and find your purpose

be inspired.jpgWhat will you allow yourself to “breathe in” today that will move you a little closer to your dreams, longings, intentions?   Here’s a look at where the word comes from:

ORIGIN Middle English enspire, from Old French inspirer, from Latin inspirare ‘breathe or blow into,’ from in- ‘into’ + spirare ‘breathe.’ The word was originally used of a divine or supernatural being, in the sense [impart a truth or idea to someone.]

When something “breathes new life into you,” it means that you are inspired!  What will it be today?

An Appointment With Mystery

merton.jpgThomas Merton’s words are traveling with me, daily, all through 2011.  What a great and inspiring companion he is.  I share a page from my personal commonplace book here.  I ask you this – “If you had an appointment with mystery today, where would you meet?”

Clip It!!!

I had so much fun seeing how my friend, Kathleen, repurposed things in her home.  My husband and I have a few kind of “spendy” bag closures.  No more!  From now it’s clothespin all the way.  I picked these decorated plastic clothespins in a craft store sale bin.  They match my kitchen perfectly.  So fun.  Also a nifty and affordable Valentine’s Day Gift for pals.
