Thought for the day…..to end the year….

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the 31st Day of December, 2014.

The last day of this year.

I have been away from writing since my blog on Christmas Morning.

I just did not have words to write …..

Perhaps it was a good way to end the year.

Giving myself some time to reflect on the year and the holiday.

Yesterday when I was updating my excel spreadsheet with the purchases that I had made over the last couple of weeks; I came across a notebook with only a few pages written upon.

Crazy but they were from the first three days of January, 2014.

Usually in addition to writing this blog I write in a gratitude journal everyday.

This past week I have not written in that journal either …. perhaps that is why I feel like I am just wandering about and not doing much.

This is the entry from my gratitude journal and I would like to share it with all of you:

“DAY 1565, Friday January 3rd, 2014 – 5:05 a.m.

Looks like rain turned to snow overnight.

Still mild out.

Back to work as feeling better.

Using one of my new notebooks from Manda.

Hard to believe Christmas over and already Day 3 of the New Year.

I’m reading Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book – “Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life.”

One important thing: watch judgments – as without opposites we would not be – can’t have short without tall, high – low etc.

I want to be only kind and positive.

I want to serve humanity and help animals.

Alvin is on my lap.  I love to cuddle with him.

Today is a great day.

We are safe, warm, happy, kind, grateful and alive.

I am a money magnet.

Money comes to me easily and effortlessly.

Thank you for this great life, and this wonderful day.

Signed with a “THANK YOU” and a “HEART.”

 

I guess this sums up my thoughts and feelings of late.

Sometimes we just run into a roadblock that keeps us from doing what we love.

I am happy to report that I am back.

It doesn’t matter if one person or five hundred people read my blog.

It only matters that I love to write it.

This New Year I want to add more to my blog ….. I did start way back when but got caught up with work ….

Photos are nice.

I need to share some of this past year.

Jewellery out for our October Open House – Dear Stella Jewellery

Well it is time to go and take down the Christmas Tree.

I usually keep it up for New Year’s Eve but then I was thinking about time over the next few days … figured better to take it down now.

Then I can get the house back to norm.

Okay time to go ….. I just could not help myself sharing more photos.

Have a great New Year’s EVE.

If you drink do not drive.

If you drive do not drink.

If you drink stay at home.

If you are out ….. pack a toothbrush and spend the night.

Happy New Year.

I wish only good things for everyone.

Me and Alvin wish you all good health, great joy, much love and laughter and abundance.

HAPPY NEW  YEAR.

We will be snuggling on the sofa and watching movies tonight.

Perhaps having some Bailey’s and coffee as I bought some for Christmas and have not cracked the bottle yet.

Okay I am signing off for now.

Special Hello to: every living being on the planet …. our hope is that you are all safe and warm.

Always, Carol and Alvin

 

 

Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 3rd day of January, 2014.

Well I am back at it today after being sick yesterday.

It is amazing how quickly you can go from feeling great to not.

 

On this last day of the work week for most people, I would like to pass on this thought.

What would our lives be like if “we lived without judgment?”

We tend to live thinking of each end of the spectrum.

For example: either there is beauty in an object or it is ugly.

Have you ever considered that one could not exist without the other.

 

I am reading an interesting book at the moment.

It has got me to thinking beyond my usual positive nature.

I guess that is always a good thing.

If you are curious about the book.

It is “CHANGE Your THOUGHTS — CHANGE Your LIFE” by Dr. Wayne Dyer.

 

I think it is always good to stretch yourself.

So on this Friday, I am going to be “devoid of judgment.”

My lesson for the day.

See both ends of the spectrum, I believe.

Remember that one cannot exist without the other.

They are both important in the grand scheme of things.

 

Special Hello to: my sister  …. we should SKYPE soon.

 

Always, Carol and Alvin

Thought for the day ……. HAPPY NEW YEAR

Good Morning and Welcome to Wednesday the very first day of January and of the New Year “2014.”

Well we were in bed before midnight.

We did see the ball drop in New York due to the time difference, thank you.

Someone in the neighbourhood lit fireworks so we listened to them but I was too “lazy” to get out of bed to see them.

I read the first chapter of one of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book “Change your thoughts …. Change your life.”

Good way to end 2013 ….. reading.

I hope that you all had a great New Year’s Eve.

Now we are entering another New Year.

Time to be better people.

We can do it.

Starting today ….. be kind ….. be good …. be generous and be grateful.

Well I am on my way to the store to work a shift.

Should be fun …. I get to say “Happy New Year” ……

Much more fun than “Good Morning or Good Afternoon.”

Thank you for reading my blog.

I am so grateful.

Special Hello to: friends and family all over the world.

Always, Carol and Alvin
