EASY? Like Sunday Morning

sundaymorningIt may say “easy like Sunday morning” but this Sunday morning my head is spinning!  I mean it is not necessarily a bad thing, its just not an easy thing either!  No it is not spinning with bad thoughts (YOU know ME better than that!) it is just spinning with many thoughts. I woke up at 6:34 on a Sunday morning! I guess that is OK because I love to wake up bright and early any day of the week to see what He has given me today; I mean other than the gift of today.  I am always excited to see what small, or big, surprises lie in wait for me on the new day!

I think my mind is reeling still from my recent hospital stay. I had a lot, have a lot, of things I am still trying to figure out! And I feel a new sense of urgency when it comes to my life goals. I have started writing with renewed purpose, I am taking a couple of courses that will help me get to my end game! I am busy! And that is good! But it has my head and heart filled with tons of stuff!!  Not to mention the looming medical bills from my hospital stay!  Yeah thats gonna happen!!  BOO!

I love that I can come here and get it all out…….and I love that even when the storm seems to be lurking on the horizon I am still feeling great!! There really is something to be said for living a gratitude filled life. I love when things happen to validate the progress I have made and to validate my writing and what it is that I want to share with the world!

Now if I can only find that darn money tree….oh wait, there it is!  ❤

Oh hey!! If you have read to this point you will now be rewarded with a joke!! Yay!! Lucky you! Remember when I used to tell you a joke every once in a while? It has been too long….maybe a blonde joke!  Why not? I’m  allowed 🙂

 

A blonde was bragging about her knowledge of state capitals. She proudly says, “Go ahead, ask me, I know all of them.” A friend says, “O.K., “What’s the capital of Wisconsin?”

The blonde replies, “Oh, that’s easy, W.”

And I am not even going to bother telling you that I actually do know  the capital of WI!  Because well, you know, with Google and all you would never believe that I really knew it!  Because I AM blonde!!

Seeking Suggestions!

As I sit here in my room filled with windows, looking out over acres of ground, which is quickly being covered by the snow that is falling (yet again), I find myself thinking of what I would like to be doing today. What would I like to do on days such as this one? On days when I’m unable to get out of the house or just don’t feel like getting out in the snow. And as sure as I am that my name is Christine; I am also sure that I want to write.

So  I do. And I have. But I want more.

I want to write for a magazine, blog, or something similar. A place where I can be a featured writer, writing recurring articles on…what else? Forgiveness, Gratitude, and Uconditional love!

That would make me happy. And would definitely be helpful in moving forward.

Any ideas? I begin a search today for this position I seek. I welcome any and all suggestions!

In Gratitude ~Christine

 

Gratitude=Happiness?

I recently started a Yahoo Group. See side bar for link! Oh heck…OK Let me see if I can add it here in the message….

Ok, there ya go! That is my new Yahoo group. I started it as a way to encourage active conversation between all of us like minded people! In the meantime I have talked to some people and maybe a Yahoo Group is not the best way to go about doing this! Maybe I will add a Forum to my blog. We will see. ( I am actually working on a Forum already, so if a Forum will be better than I am ready!)  In the end I do not care which one works, I just want to get people talking!

Anyway….I thought I would post here my recent post on the Yahoo group so that you could see what is happening over there!

So here ya go-

Posted earlier today on my Yahoo Group!

I write often about how to achieve Happiness. I even have an old blog by the name of “From Here To Bliss” devoted to happiness. I guess that is where this all started. I started that blog on Aug 11, 2009. I then moved on to Our Souls Purpose in Dec 2010. I have learned a lot in that time and I have grown. But the one thing, and there is more than one thing, that is the same is my quest for Happiness and the knowledge that I and YOU can have it!

Back in the day I felt it was something that I had to chase, now I do not feel it is mine to chase, I feel it is mine to have as I want it. It is a matter of choice,some days are harder than others, but it still comes down to a matter of personal choice.

Below is a quote that I think explains how I feel very well!
I believe gratitude= happiness.

What about you?

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” ~Denis Waitley
