Happy New Year! Thoughts for Thursday!

“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”

I hope to make 2010 a better year for my family and myself. I don't like making resolutions because I don't keep them.I do think though that I have goals that I should try very hard to make happen. I know that there's a lot I can do  if I push myself and not let allow myself to get consumed by my anxiety,depression and feeling of hopelessness.One of the things I need to work on is my health ,especially my weight. I don't want diabetes to be the death of me.I have enough damage caused by it already.
I also need to stop isolating.that is a big thing.There are so many things,I could go on and on.
The main thing is to spend lots of time and  have healthy ,harmonious relationships with the people I love.Without them,nothing else matters to me.
This year the most awesome thing was that one of my dreams finally came true. My siblings (2 of them) responded to m…

Zentangle ATC's

Recently I joined a Zentangle  for beginners ATC swap via
I made two for my partner and enjoyed the process so much I just kept going.
I had made one or two before this so I still consider myself a beginner.I have seen so many gorgeous zentangles made by other people.It's amazing the different designs they come up with.
I found it very relaxing to zentangle!So I will be making many more!

Musical Monday:Man in the Mirror

This is the last Monday of 2009!I have to be honest...I'm glad a new year is coming.2009 has been a trying year.I don't forget my blessings ever but it's definitely been a toughie in many areas and I look forward to 2010 being a better year.I know that for the coming year I want to do more volunteer work.Helping others has always helped me.
I forget about my troubles .That is tremendously healing to my soul.I also need to work on my Hands 4 Peace project which I totally neglected in 2009.I have always felt that I was born with a mission. make a difference even in the smallest of ways,and that's what I want to do.I realize that in order to help others I need to start with myself.Start with the (wo)man in the mirror!

"Don't limit yourself.

Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do.

You can go as far as your mind lets you.

What you believe, remember, you can achieve."

Saturday 9: Don't Talk to Strangers

1. Tell us about a night that you spent with someone who was a stranger, yet by the end of the night you were very close.
Hmmmmm....I've never spent the night with a total stranger before ,however there was a time I met a homeless gentleman and we had lunch together.I learned a lot about his life and how he came to be in the situation he was in.That experience really humbled me and I will never forget it.On many  occasions I have met people and have had some awesome conversations that brought us a little bit closer.I think each person you meet leaves you with a little part of themselves.
2. When is the last time you rode the bus? I ride it everyday to and from yesterday!

3. Describe the last time you stood up for a cause. I seem to do that a lot.Very often!I stand up for immigrants.I believe this country was built on the tears,blood and sweat of immigrants...and I think people tend to forget,everyone in the USA ,except for the Native …

Carry on Tuesday :Name In The Sky...

I'm in no way a poet,but I do love poetry. I found this meme and decided to give it a go.
Nothing out of this world but I enjoyed participating!I like this idea from and think I will participate again!If you're reading this and think you would like to participate check that blog out!
This week the prompt is the opening lines of a very short poem
by Jessica Blade entitled "Your Name"

I wrote your name in the sky
but the wind blew it away!
I started to cry in dismay
then  realized   your name is etched in my heart
the memory of you is there to stay...
It will never fade away!
I painted your name in the night
embellished with the stars that shine
like your eyes
looking into them made everything right...
I wrote your name in the sky
right under a rainbow
it reminded me how you colored my world!
and now I know
as long as I look up at the skies
I will always feel you near ,
it fills me with hope...
 settles my fear
I wrote your name in the sky
Now I know there is…

Desiderata...words I live by

This is one of my favorite poems.It is beautiful and full of wisdom.When I start to doubt myself and my head is full of dark thoughts I read this and it helps me put things in perspective.
