Good evening everyone!!!! Finally, a ‘normal’ Saturday night. I’ve not experience one of these since mid June and I "soul" needed this. My home is filled with an abundance of life, laughter and fun this evening; something that hasn’t been here since the first of August. We’re between activities and so...I’ve taken this opportunity to share and be grateful. The SQE (Society for Quality Education) today, was very nice and it was lovely spending time with my dad. I’m looking forward to a good night sleep later this evening and maybe...just maybe, I’ll sleep in. This may seem like a ‘simple’ entry, but I can assure you...it is a powerful one for me. Friday morning, I spent chatting with a dear friend. We’ve got, what I think will be, an exciting new project coming together in the days ahead. If it goes as anticipated...I look forward to sharing it on my blog. As I sign off, may I leave you with this interesting tidbit...This year October has 5 Mondays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. It’s been send this happens once every 823 years and is referred to ‘money bags’. Remember to celebrate the small things in life ~ they make the ‘challenges’ a little easier to accept. With heartfelt wishes...Carleana

Just a quick note as I wind down my day. Friday turned out to be a productive day as far as finishing some of those little odd jobs. Saturday I was part of the Spirituality Event hosted here in London. I wish I could say it was or wasn't what I expected but the truth is, I had no idea what to expect when I agreed to go. I must admit...it didn't enter my mind that it would be outside. As such, I was not dressed for the day. Cold, breezy, damp and windy - while I was in a light dress and sandals. So... I sang my Mr Sun Song and asked the breeze energies to be calm for a few hours. I am excited to say...for the next few hours...while it was still cool and damp...the Sun did her best to warm us while the breeze became a welcoming complement to the sun's warmth. As the breeze built and the sun took a rest, many of us decided it was time to pack up. We gave thanks to the elements and the opportunities as we headed home for hot baths and warm drinks. Today was an emotional roller coaster ride for me again and sadly my heart ache distressed my children. I am so lucky to have such warm, compassionate and WISE children. I must remember to tell them how much I love them and how important they are to me especially during this transition. To all of you who have children in your life....please remember to thank these children. You might be amazed just how much they carry for you to make your day a little easier. To all the children in the world, carrying burdens a child shouldn't have to ~ with all my heart I thank you! May you be blessed with the strength you need to become free of the heaviness you've taken on so you can explore the beauty in life AND play as children should be allowed too. With all my love; hugs and kisses.... Carleana

Not unlike most of you, I start off with good intentions as I begin something new or return to complete an unfinished project when suddenly.... I find I’ve again become distracted and pulled away from what I was doing.
Before I know it days, weeks or months have passed and my well intended effort is still cluttering an area of my home, or I’ve not spoken to that friend I cherish or my project is still incomplete or; and the list continues. Sometimes it is then that I become frustrated with myself which only adds to my feeling of self annoyance. Why can’t I stay focused? Can’t I finish anything? What was it that distracted me in the first place?
Maybe it was a knock on the door, a phone call; an urgent situation....any number of things may have become my new focus. Some distractions are such that I can attend to them and get back to the task at hand, but sometimes they require me to give them my full attention and that’s when it happens – time passes.
Soon I forget what I was doing and other things come and go in my life until...I realize I’ve left “stuff” out in a room or I’m missing that person I was on my way to visit or I go to put on those pants I started to hem. Then the words always do your best come to mind. It is important to not feel bad for taking the time I did because, if I didn’t “need” to address that issue at the time, the truth is I likely wouldn’t have. Acknowledging that, and accepting it allows me to move forward without guilt so that I can get back to that project and/or my new intention(s)...with the same enthusiasm and excitement I originally had.
That is where I’m at right now. Perhaps in a future blog I’ll share what’s been happening in my life that has pulled away from my blogging and my intention to start a new Soul Journey but for now...these matters, that distracted me, are becoming less of a distraction. From that situation, there are items that still need my attention. A recent scare has gifted me with clarity, reminding me to allow myself to feel pleasure and celebrate the things that bring me peace and balance in my life. I’m starting to re-establish a routine that inspirers me to do what I enjoy. Thank you so much for sticking with me through this journey.
Please feel free to share my blog with those you think will enjoy it and/or find value in reading it. I always enjoy hearing from you too. Leave a comment or send me an email at email@example.com
Blessings of abundance to you and those you cherish.
Celebrating life and all it has to offer....
