the beatles said IT best …

Do I really even need to say anything about this?

 

No, but I will anyway ;)

A lesson in life and love … LET. IT. BE. These words came to mind when I drew this last September. These are words I need to remind myself of often (hence why I’m posting them today). I am always working working working on health, on school, on relationships, on goals, on being active, on feeling good about myself, even relaxing seems like work for me sometimes (seriously! sad face). Often, the less effort you put into something, the more reward you receive. Less work = more joy. Shit, that sounds nice. Now, how do I do that ?!?? Well, my awareness has definitely grown in this area, so I’m headed in the right direction …

Take a moment today to just let it (whatever “it” is for you) be. Smile. Breathe. Meditate. Gaze at the sky. Drink a beer. Do you. Or should I say BE you.  :)

orchiDELIRIUM …

  delirium. noun. 1. a more or less temporary disorder of the mental faculties, as in fevers, disturbances of consciousness, or intoxication, characterized by restlessness, excitement, delusions, hallucinations, etc. 2. a state of violent excitement or emotion.

Orchidelirium is the name of the orchid exhibit at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. From the definition above (c/o dictionary.com), I should have had a rather intense experience and possibly hurt people while I was there. That is not exactly what happened. My self-definition would be a temporary disorder (disorder? … that word sounds so negative!) of the mental faculties, through intoxication (sensory – sight, smell, touch … I totally ignored the “do not touch the plants” signs), characterized by excitement. Hmmm, I kinda like the dictionary.com definition better …

And here’s some other magical plantness we saw amongst the tropical rain forest of the Bronx. So much natural beauty and detail to observe and ponder …

. all creation comes from love .

life is FOR you …

life is for me

My amazing life coach, Michelle, used to send me mantra images fairly often. Sometimes, I would make them my phone’s lock screen photo. This one, I decided to write out and keep near me. I may have wrote this mantra out when I was at Omega and not using my phone much ;)

Michelle also mentioned early on in our sessions that nothing in life is done TO you, everything is done FOR you. Life feels very different when you look at it from this perspective …
