A shark…

A shark in a fish tank will grow 8 inches,

but in the ocean it will grow 8 feet or more.

The shark will never out grow its environment.

The same is true about you.

~ John Assaraf

*

Be careful that you don’t get so comfortable in life

that you quit growing.

Sometimes the challenge of the unknown is what we need

to keep ourselves sharp and focused.

Otherwise complacency sets in and we

carelessly, conveniently continue existing.

The oceans roar…

The oceans

roar

is music

to the soul…

So many people love the roar of the ocean.

In fact, many people never tire of the sounds of the crashing waves

hitting against the surrounding shore.

It is sweet music to their soul.

Over and over again.

Ocean air…

The moment I see the beach

and smell the ocean air,

a feeling of happiness

pervades my soul.

Be present…

Be present…

Be present.  Make love.  Make tea.

Avoid small talk.  Embrace conversation.

Buy a plant, water it.  Make your bed.

Make someone else’s bed.  Have a smart mouth,

and quick wit.  Run.  Make art.  Create.

Swim in the ocean.  Swim in the rain.

Take chances.  Ask questions.  Make mistakes.

Learn.  Know your worth.  Love Fiercely.

Forgive quickly.  Let go of what doesn’t

make you happy.  Grow.

~Author unknown

In other words

 

~ LIVE YOUR LIFE ~

 

Do the things that make you happy no matter what others do.

 

Balance yourself in a sea of self forgiveness and motivation.

 

You can do it all so you’d better get started!

 

You may make mistakes but don’t let that stop you.  Everybody makes mistakes no matter how careful they might be.  You just can’t make someone else be honest if they don’t want to be.

And trusting someone who is dishonest may appear to be your mistake at the time, but just wait, it may be the most valuable lesson you could ever learn.  Just don’t let their bad slow you down.  Move on and keep going.

Learn to say NO and keep practicing it.

Don’t end up sorry because someone else won’t be responsible for their own life.

Learn your lesson and keep on living!

 

Know your worth and attract others who know your worth also.

Those who are not afraid to show you that they love you by what they say and do.

BECAUSE

You deserve the best life possible.

 

Go for it…

Note to self…

Note to self:

None of us are getting out of here

alive, so please stop treating

yourself like an after thought.  Eat

 the delicious food.  Walk in the

sunshine.  Jump in the ocean.  Say

the truth that you’re carrying in

you heart like hidden treasure.

Be silly.  Be kind.  Be weird.  There’s

no time for anything else.

~Nanea Hoffman

The ocean…

Heaven seems a little closer

when you are near

the ocean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many people choose to go to the ocean shore to renew and revitalize themselves.

There is something so refreshing about the fresh ocean air and the calming repetition of the incoming waves of blue.  Not to mention the soothing sound of the gentle waves washing in to the nearby sand.

This is often a place to think things out and regroup from your daily routine.

Taking time to refresh with the breezy atmosphere, enjoying the occasional sea gull who carelessly passes above you.

It’s also a great place to catch up on a little reading, or writing if you feel inspired to do so.

Get grounded…

Has LIFE got you a little frazzled?

Get grounded

Maybe it is time to take a little TIME for yourself. We go and go and try to get more and more done all the time. We care for this person and help that person, and then we take care of our family’s needs, only to find that we are on the edge of burnout ourselves. At the end of the day we crash into bed falling fastly asleep. Never once wondering what we could do differently. We just are what we are… priorities include everyone else. The more we can do for someone else, the better we feel. We just have to get it all done. Day after day.  We have lists and organizers and more lists and sticky notes, and phone reminders, and calendars, and voice reminders… and personal assistants, and appointment reminder texts.

And what abut commitments?  Oh boy.  The kids have so much going on.  There is baseball practice every night, and volleyball practice once a week, swimming lessons on Friday, ballet three times a week, guitar lessons once a week on Wednesday, and homework all the time.  It is so much easier and faster now that we can just Google things instead of looking through those old musty encyclopedias.  Wow that used to take up so much time.  How did people ever live like that?  Reading and writing everything out in cursive.  It must have taken them forever to get things done.

Imagine a life like that.

What if you had a day off?  What would you do?

Can you take a few seconds to just try to imagine having a day off?

Think about what you would do if you had a whole day all to yourself.  You could go anywhere or do anything you wanted to do .  With anyone you wanted to be with (now that’s just day dreaming – right?)

Ok ~  back to possible reality…

So you have it all figured out that you can actually squeeze a day out of your busy life and schedule for yourself.  Now what are you going to do with it?

How about taking a few minutes to think about what would make you happy.  Remember some of your previous days when you were care free to do the things that you liked doing.  Back when you didn’t have so many responsibilities and obligations.

What kinds of things really made or “let” you feel light and care free?  Perhaps it was walking on the beach somewhere or putting your feet in the sand.

Maybe just sitting down to look at the ocean waves for a little while, sticking your bare toes in the sand, squishing them around, wiggling them down into the sand, getting grounded.  Feeling at peace with life.  Feeling free.

Wouldn’t that be a wonderful day off?  There are lots of ways to feel grounded.  What ever you do, take time to feel good.  Maybe just drink a cup of your favorite hot tea and relax, or call an old friend and reconnect.

Become one with the waves…

Become one with the waves…

Become one with the waves
Find Peace and Harmony as you become one with the waves…
And how would you do this?
First it would be helpful if you liked to go to the beach.  If you were naturally drawn to stand by the ocean and watch the waves as they mysteriously wash in and out at the urging of the tides.  That would predispose the fact that you already feel the power of the waves.  That you are one of the many thousands of people that enjoy the cool refreshing mist of the ocean spray on a warm and sunny day.  You see that the rocks are wet with mist from the wind blown water, splashing rhythmically against them.  You hear the sound of the waves splashing purposely  back and forth as they cover and uncover the rocks beneath your feet encompassing the surrounding area, touching lightly on your bare feet, brushing softly against your skin.

You are now immersed with the feelings of being at the beach and becoming one with the peace and harmony of the waves.  As you surrender yourself to all of the local sounds, sights, aromas, and feelings, you become in tune with them.  Deeper and deeper you immerse yourself into the surroundings, one breath at a time.  Breathing deeply now, you let your eyes slowly come to closure, only hearing, smelling, and feeling your surroundings.  Soon you find yourself peaceful and relaxed.  Still breathing in, and exhaling out, you allow the waves to become a part of you.  Breathing them in, breathing them out.  Feeling them calm you and bring you into a harmonious part of your inner self.  You are now one with the waves.  You are a part of them and they are a part of you.

While you are in this contemplative, meditative state you may even want to sing or chant a favorite spiritual song to bring you even closer to nature.

The song “Mother Earth” by Navajo musician Sharon Burch is one that you might want to try.  The translation comes from Navajo language translator Krystle Seschillie on her blog Navajo Now. The song reminds us that we are a part of a larger cosmic system — whether you call that God, Mother Earth or something else entirely.

 

Mother Earth by Sharon Burch

Heiyee’ everything brings happiness.
Heiyee’ everything brings happiness.
Heineiyaa.

I am part of Mother Earth.
Mother Earth’s feet are my feet.
Mother Earth’s legs are my legs.
Mother Earth’s strength is my strength.
Mother Earth’s arms are my arms.
Mother Earth’s has a vision, I have a vision.

I am part of Mother Earth.
Mother Earth’s feet are my feet.
Mother Earth’s legs are my legs.
Mother Earth’s strength is my strength.
Mother Earth’s arms are my arms.
Mother Earth’s consciousness is my consciousness.

Finding your power…

Refreshing sea

Looking at the sea is so inspirational.

It can be powerful, strong and mighty. It can also be calming, refreshing and serene.  You can get so many different feelings from spending time at the ocean.

From the tranquil turquoise shades of the sky to the transparent greenish blue hues reflected in the water.  There is some variance in colors and yet it is also so much the same.  Beautiful shades of blue.  The waves flowing in and out with fine white sprays of water capping the tops of each and every one as the wind carries them towards the shore.

The stones are solid and add a strength and weight to the lingering landscape.  Worn and rounded by the continual pounding of the waves.

You may even see a crab scampering sideways across one of the rocks, quickly darting into a hole between them, hiding from the perpetual predators nearby.

The air is softly blowing a tropical breeze through the scenery, cooling the surrounding shores from the hot afternoon sun.

It is easy to feel good, and powerful, while standing by the sea side empowered by the current surroundings.

Practice this good feeling and focus on the power and strength you are feeling.  Keep it growing and getting stronger and stronger.  Allow the surroundings to enhance you as you dwell on all of the beauty you are in right now.  Stay in the moment and enjoy the place you are in.  Look within yourself as you celebrate each refreshing breath.  One breath at a time. Breathe in the great powerful energy, and then breathe out any negative energy  that you may find as you exhale.  Again breathe in.  Visualize breathing in the bright white light, or bright yellow light as you inhale.  Blow out any old stagnant energy that comes to your mind’s eye as you exhale.  Let any thing go and float away that doesn’t feel empowering and enhancing to you as you stand boldly by the sea, taking it all  in, experiencing the whole creative process.  Allow the fresh salt air to fill your lungs and encourage you as you expand with enthusiasm.  Experience your new found power and allow your self to enjoy each moment bringing you peace and harmony, strength and love.

Life is so good and can keep getting better and better as you practice feeling good and allowing more good to come to you.

All is well.
