Photos from our yard...

 So today for the FIRST TIME, I actually took some time to attempt some picture taking, trying different settings, and actually getting some photos of flowers. I am totally a novice, but I am actually proud of some of the shots I took!

Makiya loves the flowers too...She was smelling the blossoms that WERE there!!

Lilacs are my absolute FAVE!! Literally (minus 1 or 2) all of the places (and there are alot!!) that I have lived, luckily, had Lilac trees!!

Just some randomness...we have yet to complete cleaning up our yard, taking out the junk and planting some new flowers. So, I looked around, and saw some things that caught my eye!

I love these shots!! I was a little disappointed at first, the Tulips were all gone, but I found this one!

Like I said, some things just appealed!! 

Hope you like them too!!

Spring Cleaning of the Mind

Why is it so easy to get pulled from your path?

It is simple to get lost in the daily chaos and and to allow your mind to become full of what is essentially poison. Thoughts that are toxic to your future, to your dreams to your very being. It can be easily forgotten, the way the Laws of Attraction and our minds are connected.

I try hard everyday to think positive things, to envision all the positive things I desire as if they already existed...and yet, I realize now that my mind is also full of so many other harmful things. I am ultra focused on the negative things that exist in my life right now.

All of that energy spent on regretting these things is only allowing more of it to come into my life!! I have to get back to gratitude, appreciating everything...for it is all on purpose. I forget that the tough times, the difficult people, the constant struggle is a necessary part of my journey. I am to experience these things so as to learn and/or teach. It is actually something to be treasured, as a part of myself, as a vital piece that makes up the whole of me.

The more I resist, kick and fight against what IS, the less I will learn and the longer it will take to get to where I long to be.

I suppose I really need to take a step back, take a few deep breaths and really LOOK. Look at everything with a new perspective. Clean out the clutter. Think fresh.
