I bought a yard globe for the front yard.
It looked fabulous in the store, but when I got it home and placed it in the flower bed, I didn’t like it at all. It was not right so, I took it back to the store.
Is there such a thing as too much bling?
I was happy for not hesitating long before taking it back. I’m a laid back soul, so I pondered it trying to make it work, but I’m just not willing to settle.

I read a Blog yesterday written by someone I follow. We are on the same page in our philosophy of letting things go. She let go of her supplies to a long time craft she had loved, but wasn’t enjoying anymore. The title of her Blog sums it up nicely.
It says, “Cut the ties that bind, even though you loved them.“~Co-Creating and Cowgirl Wisdom.
She says in her post that even if she returns to the craft she would buy new tools, so it was time to let go of what she had. Let someone else enjoy them like a beginner. The tools for the craft have been updated, and now she knows there is better.

It was easy to return the yard globe to the hardware store, but other choices pull at our heartstrings more. I assure you lovely. There is better.
The community of WordPress is a special place.
We lift each other up, and love on one another with comments. Andy here recently nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger award. This is my way of saying thank you. To introduce him to you by sharing his work to my WordPress family.
I love what Andy says about the comparison game. “The only way to win… is not to play.” Thank you Andy for the nomination, and sharing your wisdom. xx
The words that come out of my daughter’s mouth during conversation is like visiting with Yoda.
Tomorrow is my birthday.
I rolled out of bed with the Rolodex of this year, flipping through my mind. What have I accomplished? Am I on target with my goals?
She knows I do this twice a year.
The day before my birthday, and December 31st.
This morning she said something that shifted my perspective back to ‘the now’. She said,
Tomorrow you will not be a whole year older. You will just be one more day.
Thank you my darling daughter.
“Sometimes the picture isn’t finished yet.”
“Ideas, possibilities, hopes, dreams float around, circling us like asteroids around a planet. We may think events in our lives are happening aimlessly, without purpose. All we see are disconnected, floating blobs.”
“We reach for them, try to grab them in our hands so we can connect them, force them into a whole, force them into a picture we can see, something that makes sense.”
“Let the pieces be. Let yourself be. Let life be.”
“Sometimes, chaos needs to precede order. The pieces will come together in a picture that makes sense, in a beautiful work of art that pleases.”
“You don’t have to force the pieces to fit together if it’s not time. You don’t have to know. There is power in letting go.
“Power in waiting. Power in stillness. Power in trust. There is power in letting the disconnected pieces be until they settle into a whole. The action you are to take will appear.”
“Timely. Clearly. What you’re to do will become clear.”
(Excerpt from Melody Beattie~Journey to the Heart)
