Thanksgiving 2017: Thoughts on Gratitude and Abundance


Happy Thanksgiving!! I have spent several weeks thinking about Gratitude, especially since I had a very rough couple of months. I asked and received help and have become the better for it.

in recent weeks I found myself feeling hopeful about my ability to manifest good in my life and I found myself saying "THANK YOU. MORE PLEASE. It took me awhile to figure out where that phrase came from and I recently discovered it was a part of the title from this 2010 indie film:

I've adapted the phrase to my own mantra of sorts. Thank You is an acknowledgement of the good that happens everyday in my life. And there is always something if I take the time to look: A compliment, a tip from a client, walking into a store and finding a nice treat or a new product. 

The MORE PLEASE, reminds me to as for what I want. And a reminder that asking for things docent always equate greediness.

And I've recently had Alanis's song Thank You on a lop for weeks!

             I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Review: Dot Journaling by Rachel Wikerson Miller

I  have heard a lot about Bullet Journaling but didn't really understand the concept until I got this great book! Within five minutes I had grabbed one of my journals and got started:

Rachel does a great job getting readers to start their own journals. She gives suggested pages but also encourages you to  tap into your inner creativity.

This book was a quick informative read and my life has become much more organized since using the Bullet Journal formula. I cant recommend this book enorgh!

Review: The sun and her flowers by rupi kaur

 Rupi's  book Milk and Honey was a breakout hit. So to say readers were hungry for a follow up book is an understatement. I was a little nervous about this book. I loved M & H so much I was worried my expectations wouldn't match the content. 
It was an unecessary worry. The most amazing thing about this book is how truly it is Rupi's work. She writes about what is dear to her. She has not changed for commercal success. 
That means some of these poems can cover dark trigger warning moments.  
I applaud Rupi's bravery and er strength. There are alos moments of light and beauty in this book that leap of the page and warm your heart.
A really nice book. If gifting be sure that the receiver can handle the emotional depths of this book.  Here is one of my favorite poems from the collection:
