Spirituality, Joy, And Inspiration Are Interwoven
I sincerely believe that joy, inspiration, and spirituality are all interwoven. My spirituality continues to grow and become a more prominent part of my life. I discovered the essence of spirituality in my yoga teacher training many years ago. Religion, although there is nothing wrong with it, has a set of rules and regulations. Spirituality is a way of life that leads me to the best version of myself. Spirituality is acceptance and love. It is a growing consciousness. It is surrender to the materialistic and egoic worlds. When we surrender to those things, we are naturally more joyful.
Sounds Of Nature Bring Peace And Happiness

There is excitement in the air as well as in my heart and soul.

Lithium, is a common earth element that can have a positive impact on your mental health (Opinion)

Opinion: Relaxation and Comfort From Little Everyday Things
A cup of hot steaming tea in my hand. A fuzzy warm throw around my shoulders as I sit on the front porch in the early September morning sun. This is comfort to me. Everyone has their own idea of what comfort means to them. Hot soup, bubble baths, soft music — these are a few of the most popular offerings when you ask someone what brings them comfort. But what might be comforting to one person might not have the same effect on another. Comfort is subjective. Candles don’t do anything for me, while the smell of pinto beans and cornbread cooking in the kitchen soothes my nerves and calms me.
Movies for this winter

What fills your space?
I heard an awful story on the news yesterday about a mom who was on the third floor of the mall with her son when a man approached her, grabbed her son, and threw him over the railing. The boy survived and recovered after a long series of surgeries and rehabilitation. That would be enough to grab your attention, but what struck me the most was the attitude of the mother. Many parents would be bitter, and angry, and some would consider violence toward the man who had thrown a child three flights. The mother said she forgave the man, and the reason she forgave him was that she refused to let him steal her joy. She wasn’t going to let him take up any more space in her life.
Let go of negativity
My husband has what I consider to be the perfect attitude about life and people. I have a great deal to learn from him because I worry too much about what people think, I’m highly emotional, and sensitive, and want to please everyone. I have days when I feel like my mental state is the eye of the storm while my husband is the calming breeze that comes after. Here are some of the comments he has said that has helped me put things in perspective.

Purpose instead of resolutions for 2022
It is a brand new year and you have another list of resolutions. If you have been keeping track of your resolutions from the previous year, are you able to check the box that these resolutions were successfully completed? You lost a substantial amount of weight, deep cleaned your domicile, got rid of old clothes, cleaned your car and all of the other items that were untouched, partially completed or forgotten. We have all been told that words matter. I think resolutions is the word that sabotages everyone. The last week of every year the mass media gives you a recap of the year. Politics, celebrity deaths and the economy are major categories that impact our lives. The past couple of years have been exceptionally difficult on the mind, body and soul, but we feel guilty to make a resolution list to fulfill in the new year.
