I have been so caught up in DOING that I haven’t had enough BEING in my life.

I remember the first time I heard the saying, “She’s a human DOING, not a human BEING!”

It’s easy to get caught up in life and its challenges, and all the tasks we need to do. We can get so busy DOING we forget about our dreams and they take a back seat for so long we almost forget about them!

If you have been so enmeshed in the responsibilities of life and have forgotten your soul’s purpose, then This Blessing’s for You!

May you feel a gentle breeze cross your skin

Under the canopy of an azure sky

Hear a bird’s song carried gently on the wind

As it brings your mind to the vast possibilities 

Of the dreams that live in your soul

May you meet each day with a smile in your heart

As you fulfill obligations to self and others

Always knowing it is not selfish to take care of yourself first

May you have integration of mind, body, and spirit

And be attuned to healing at the highest level

And in the process of unveiling your truth

And following your dreams

May you always have the courage

To explore the depths of your own BEING


Sweet Blessings on this beautiful Sunday.

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

    1. Thank you so much, Maggie! 🙂 I look forward to this week…as it is a vacation week…and I really like vacations!
      I’m happy you felt the blessing and thank you for your kind words. I have to write…and I never know when or what…it just sort of comes over me.
      Historically the Fall and ensuing Winter used to make me feel a little sad…I’m working on that.
      I hope that you are better than terrific and that you, too, have a blessed week!
