… a little contest!

The prize!

It’s 9:30 in the morning and already 85 degrees. I slept until 7 a.m. (Fred finally woke me up) and I’m looking at all of our animals lying prostrate on the wooden parts of the floor. Slow down, relax, take a deep breath, don’t rush, be easy with yourself today, seems to be the message…. and I am listening. So what better thing to do than a give-away? It is an easy and fun thing to do.

If you would like to enter this give-away, then just comment with a word  (or 2) that best illustrates the way you would like to feel, or have more, of in your life (examples; happy, calm, excited, faith, inner-peace, self-love) and I’ll choose a random entry on Friday, June 1st . The winner will receive a tin of the skin balm that I make….my words are, self-confidence.

  1. Only 85?? Sounds like the 90’s we’ve had in OH the last few days are moving your way. I would like peace re’ a retirement decision in the near future. Stay cool!

  2. Janet Cavallo! I echo your word: serenity. I actually sat down with my Angel Cards yesterday, and picked this card after shuffling seven times which I always do, loving the number seven! I picked this card and its message was just what I needed to hear and take to heart. Feeling anything but serene, in fact rather unsettled, the card reminded me that (and these are Doreen Virtue’s words) “you can feel serene even in the midst of great turmoil. The peace of mind is within you. It’s a mistake to think that you have to wait until your life is problem free before you can be happy and peaceful. The opposite is actually true. First, you work toward serenity, and THEN your life challenges lessen and disappear. Serenity is your natural state of mind, and the angels are now working with you to actualize this.”

    Sort of like the eye of the storm? It’s supposed to be calm there, though externally the winds rage. All about accessing that place. Peace, and serenity to all today.

  3. More patience – particularly with my absolutely wonderful 16 yr. old daughter who sometimes manages to drive me up a wall!! 🙂

  4. I think I would like self love. after losing 35 pounds last year I have gained twenty of it back. So I know I need to be able to really love myself no matter what.

  5. My words today, I am so thankful for all the colors of green.
    We finally have summer here in Alaska and after our winter, the shades
    of green are calm, happiness, alive, energy, just down right blessed, and so
    very thankful, for every each and everyone of them.

  6. self-trust—————and so may it be for you, and so may it be for me, and so may it be for all of us…

  7. I’m definitely on the “more self-confidence” band wagon! I also need to believe in myself that I’ll be OK no matter what the fear-mongers say. It’s hard sometimes. Thanks Mary!

  8. less worry/stress (mostly self-induced, unfortunately) and more free/relaxing time….. sigh…. (hamster on a wheel comes to mind)…
    mmmm…. what Marlo said: “balance”

  9. My words are peaceful and secure.

    At 75 and still working to supplement my Social Security which I live on… it would be nice to feel secure enough that I could quit working and be with my boyfriend who lives two hours away and wants me to move there to be with him. That would bring peace and security to me….however I am so hesitant to do this as I would have to sell my condo to pay off my bills and its so hard for me to come to this decision.

  10. Julie V, Go with your GUT. And have the “boyfriend” move to your neck of the woods! Confidence in your own judgement. Cathy Miller

  11. I’ve just come back from a wonderful Memorial Day weekend so my words are love unconditionally.
