Simply Be

It is raining hard and has been raining all night! We need this rain and the sound is sweet. It seems to say" stay inside by the fire and enjoy being...just being". I seem to be craving that right now. The time to simply be, with out a huge self-created to do list or an agenda to follow, meetings to attend or people to call....and oh my, what would it be like if I did not open my computer all day?
So, the rain is reminding me that if I make a list, I must put 'simply be' at the top of the list! It does not have to be an all day event but through out the day I must be willing to be quiet,check in and "simply be". It is at these times that I will naturally connect with myself and what I am feeling or needing. It is the basis of self care. I will also connect with the Source of All. How ecstatic to feel Energy spontaneously bubble up and move through me ,like a wave of love embracing every cell of my being. I wonder. why I get to busy for these special moments,freely offered for my health,joy and peace of mind and heart!

The Year is Up and Now What?

I gave myself a year after the book was published to promote it and now the year is up!
Well, it seems that the book does not keep track of time and is keeping me as busy as ever. Although I know that this is a very good thing and I enjoy all that the book creates, I must admit I am 'chomping at the bit' to get writing again!I wake up with wonderful thoughts and ideas but before I can get to my writing, I find myself doing the book's work...answering emails from readers,setting up talks,conferences and meetings. I continue to be in awe of the responses to the book. Will I ever get used to the ways the book has impacted readers? I sort of hope I will always be surprised and delighted. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that the book is touching so many lives! Finally, I am beginning to acknowledge that this first book will forever be a part of my life,sort of like a child! I must then just begin to create another! But, can I handle two very active,enthusiastic offspring,I ask myself? Perhaps, that has more to do with my procrastination than anything else!
