Like promised, I kept a memo pad at my work desk and every day I jotted down what I was thankful for in the time it took my laptop to switch on. On weekends, I stuck my gratitude notes on the refrigerator. The notes were not as thoughtful and deep as the ones I did … Continue reading 22 Days of Gratitude and Counting
So I successfully posted one thing I was thankful for every day in November. Here is the complete list. Day 1 I am thankful for the chance to start our life over in the U.S.A. Day 2 I am thankful for my own beautiful space to think and be Day 3 I am thankful for my … Continue reading 30 Days of Gratitude
I have tried over the past several years to do this 30 days of gratitude thing in the month of November but never before have I gotten this far. I thought I'd run out of things to be grateful for but I was wrong. The more grateful you are, the more you will have to … Continue reading 15 Days of Gratitude
This is big! Most of my feelings, thoughts and life experiences end up in my blog. However, this big secret I have kept from you for over a year now. It all started quite innocuously while I was still in Washington. I had landed this long-term subbing position at an elementary school while we were … Continue reading My Big Secret – Part 1
As my long-term subbing assignment was nearing its end, I was plagued with questions about what I would do with my time. My future lay ahead of me, glimmering with innumerable possibilities, enough to confuse and confound me. One day I walked into the classroom and was told that it was author day at the … Continue reading Signs I Can’t Ignore Anymore…
Anyone who knows me knows this, I love to cook but hate doing dishes. Thirteen years of doing dishes hasn't changed anything. I'm still not in a state of acceptance - this is something I have to do (as long I cook and eat) and I need to make peace with it. I secretly wish that someone … Continue reading Be Careful What You Wish For…
I have spent a few years using the law of attraction and know for sure that it works. But I have not been able to break it down to a science because it works in mysterious ways that defy definition. The first step in manifesting anything is to ask. Get really clear about what you … Continue reading Manifesting Dilemmas : Be Clear or Stay Open to Possibilities?
This is one of my favorite topics, so forgive me if I keep rehashing it and presenting it in yet another blog to you. Drawing from my earlier post on nature versus nurture, I had the good fortune of knowing three very generous ladies. Two of them were my grandmothers and one was my 'adopted' … Continue reading On Gratitude and Giving
I wrote a post last year about signs that have appeared in my life. Signs that thunderously declare the presence of a God, Universe, Consciousness or whatever you like to call it. But the signs this time were not speaking to me. Not pointing me in any specific direction and no earth-shaking discoveries or breakthroughs … Continue reading Signs Galore
I wrote about collective consciousness a year ago, right after a basketball game (See http://www.punctuatelife.com/2012/06/07/collective-consciousness/). I could sense how the fans' energy was making the players score and almost tie the game. When PBS aired a show this week about measuring coherance or in other words the collective energy emanating from the Boston Red Sox … Continue reading Global Consciousness is For Real!
