My sister and I got together in January for some sister time, it was amazing and so much fun!
One of the fun things, for her, that we did together was shopping! My sister loves to shop; I on the other hand, shop only when I absolutely have to get something. I have never been able to wrap my head around shopping, probably because I was always too busy working and too exhausted after a long day.

The first few days of being excited to be together was wonderful, catching up on our lives and sharing our adventures over the past nine months. Then as sisters typically do transitioned easily and became brutally honest with each other! All done with love, fun, laughter and tons of teasing! So my baggy butt jeans became the focus of teasing to the point I finally accepted her offer to take me shopping! Oh Joy!
My sister always looks fabulous, everything is stylish and fits properly; she definitely received that gift from our mom! Me? Let’s just say sometimes I need extra help!

Talk about being excited, the “perfect” pair of jeans that fit, looked amazing and approved by my sister was found in the second store shopped! OK, so it wasn’t that bad, I actually enjoyed the experience with her and grateful I was buying my regular size instead of larger expanding size jeans of past couple of years! Sometimes it’s the little things in life, right?
I wear these jeans once a week, wash them, dry them fold them since January. Then this weekend I had put the jeans in the hamper and the way I took them off and how the waist portion of the jean fell showed a message that surprised me. The message was sewn into the left side near the button hole and had always been there, I just wasn’t paying close enough attention or aware enough to notice, I just was going through the motions. Pick the jean up, put on my body, take off, wash, dry, fold and put away.

The message: Open Your Heart
Standing there amazed and pleasantly surprised was reminded of how often routine allows us to miss some amazing messages or perhaps meeting new people or exploring new adventures!

This week my desire for each of you is to Open Your Heart to “you” and to all the possibilities!

Expand and be open to Believe Again, Dream Again and Achieve all the possibilities that you deserve! 
Remember, you are amazing, strong and deserve to create a life you chose and take action to get it!

Explore and the task is: This week chose one thing to do for you that shows you Love!

Time For You Now!

Kicking back knowing that the snow storm pelting down will soon be in the past!
While kicking back I reminded myself warm weather, blue skies and soft ocean breezes will soon be here!

As the weather patterns change, so do the chapters of our lives. The wind blows, the rain falls, the snow swirls and the leaves disconnect allow new buds to bloom.

So how is the upcoming chapter evolving?   
Today my desire is to have you kick back, relax and take in all the good things in your life.
Yes, despite everything and all things that are part of our lives there are many things to celebrate!

Take this weekend to rest, recharge, replenish, have FUN and Take Time for You Now!
Celebrate the seeds you have planted, the tending to the soil over the past few months and now waiting for the spring rains and sunshine to produce all the you have desired and dreamed for yourself!

Celebrate the glorious, beautiful and Magnificent YOU!!

Walking around the store I couldn’t help notice all the beautiful and vibrant colors in the floral department. Purple, Yellow, Peach, Blue, Green and combinations of purple/white could go on forever with the combinations and the beautiful arrangements.
The vibrant colors seemed to jump right out to me! The colors all grouped together in various sizes and shapes bringing such beauty to the area made me feel so alive!
Once I pulled myself from the area, yes I did look back over my shoulder; began to associate the vibrant colors to my strong reaction to their beauty…..
Colorful reminder that Life can be beautiful!
Many reminders beginning last evening of all the opportunities to have a life we desire to live!

Tonight (Friday) is Full Moon, an opportunity to begin fresh, a new beginning, and new goals with opportunity swirling all around us.
Spring- just began a couple of weeks ago- the beginning of new growth! Fresh, warmth, colorful and all things awakening from the hibernation of winter
For those who celebrate Easter Holiday- Holiday weekend- Good Friday, Easter Sunday, great food, family and festivities. Once again new beginning with new opportunities
The vibrant colors reminded me that we are all here to experience and to LIVE life.  Perhaps nature’s way of reminding us to lighten up, have some fun, enjoy ourselves!
Each day is a new day, a new opportunity to seize the opportunity to alter or make changes that allow you to live life that way that feels right.  
Opportunities are all around each of us every day, have you seen one?

Colors are the smiles of nature. Leigh Hunt
Here’s to new beginnings with amazing opportunities ahead reminding us each day to color the world with smiles, happiness and celebrate Us!
