Spirit Tickles Our Funny Bone!

Spirit leaves the Raven a bit speechless with laughter. My funny bone gets tickled for no reason at all. Laughter is the best medicine! It’s a reminder to enjoy life. We aren’t here for a very long time, so enjoy the days you have! I’m going to offer you a challenge today.. I double dog dare you to try it!!!

Many Blessings,

There’s Magic to be Found

There is magic to be found every day. 

Some days it is really hard to see the magic that is there, but it is still there.
Some days we really have to work on shifting our view to see the good in that day.
Some days it is easy.
Some days it’s right there in front of us, waving hello.
Some days it is hidden beneath a whole bunch of crap.
Some days we really have to dig.
Some days it’s a surprise.
Some days we need it more than others.
Some days we forget that its always there.
Some days, no matter how hard we look, we just can’t see it.
Some days all we need to do is feel it.
Some days it guides us.
Some days we don’t have to search.
Some days it saves us.

The magic is there… it is always there. If you can’t see it… look again. If that doesn’t work… keep looking. Eventually you’ll see it and if not today, there is tomorrow. 

Many Blessings,

Magical Monday – Spreading Joy

fb cover 2





Some of my favorite moments in life are those that I can share my own joy with others and watch as they themselves become filled equally with joy, love and excitement. In this day and time people are quick to talk about all the pains, heartache, illness and despair that life has to offer but not so quick to share the more joyous moments in life.

I have to ask … why???

I know that there has to be a balance but the scales seem far too often tilted in the negative direction.  October had Breast Cancer Awareness… and November had Testicular Cancer Awareness… but what now?? What about December?  Are we all suppose to be too busy decorating, partying and buying gifts to raise awareness for anything? I think now…
So here’s a challenge I’d like to offer up through the month of December:

December – the month of deck the halls, falalalalalaaaaaaaa, joy to the world and have a holly jolly …..  My challenge is for everyone to share their joy each day.. I know some days it will be hard … we become overwhelmed with tasks, chores, decorating, buying, entertaining and so on …. that suddenly it is Christmas in xx days and our list is still way too long to cope.

Seek out some joy, some light, some love and some happiness… share it.. share it with as many as you can until it has spread like winter’s first sniffle. Watch as others become filled with that amazing light I like to call PURE JOY. When you see someone without a smile.. give them a reason to laugh…. when you see someone needing a hug … for goodness sake  – HUG THEM!

Share the spirit of love, light and joy through the month of December and I’m sure that you just might witness something far brighter than the Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center!

Go on now.. get to spreading!

Many Blessings,
