what lies ahead...

today i am making a commitment. 
to myself.

i am going to walk the road i am on.
i am going to look for the light, the joy, the little things.
i am going to measure me myself.
i am going to block out the outside voices,
   so i can hear the inside voice.
i am going to listen to myself
with all of myself.

i am going to choose HAPPY.
even if that choice changes the direction
of the road i am on.

self help

i am feeling like  i need a mental slap. 
i have such a short-term attention span, can't seem to focus on anything long enough to move forward at all. 

it's time for words of wisdom from a self-help book. 
i'm going to open to just any page and find a purpose for today on that page...

and here is what was there...

along with "Listen with all of all of you"
i think i just got the mental slap i needed.

'you are magical'

spring in new england is a wonderful thing...

it may have been a long time coming this year,
but as always, it was worth the wait.

today i want to celebrate LIFE.
with all the news of death - tornado damage, japan, bin laden -
i need to focus on life.

i walked for hours over the past few days,
wandering and pondering,
through the paths of fanny stebbins wildlife sanctuary. 

as my vacation came to an end, i found that the beauty of life renewing itself was exactly what i needed. 

looking forward, watching good things come to life gives me hope...
as i was wandering back to my car, i came across this last bit to ponder...
there in the path was a message -
from somewhere to someone,
a message written in the dirt...

so in the hopes that i can tap into this magic,
i pray for a future
where peace and life
is a cause for celebration world wide.
