Passion Colors

Feng shui in the bedroom
Pink, Red and all shades of pink and red, 
are the passion colors for the bedroom
Although some may suggest skin tones,
ranging from white to chocolate brown,
and everything in between.
Pump up the Romance in Your Life
Unclutter your bedroom
Remove all boxes and containers under your bed
Take all mechanical or technical equipment out 
of the corners of your bedroom
Remove any live plants or any mirrors
Take out work out equipment, telephones, 
televisions, computers
In their place, put candles and flowers
Avoid placement of the foot of the bed 
in direct alignment of the door.
Allow for symmetry on both sides of the bed as well
as easy access from both sides.
Also, do not place the head of the bed, in front of a window or
below a bulkhead.
It's all about the "flow of energy" 
throughout the room.
May you have a beautiful week ahead!

Quote on Parenting

 Parents can plant magic in a child's mind
through certain words spoken with some
thrilling quality of voice, 
some uplift of the heart
and spirit. ~

What are your hopes and dreams?

Have you ever wanted to do something outrageous beyond anything you ever imagined for yourself? Did your parents hold aspirations for you as a child? What are your hopes and dreams? What will you do in your life to make people stand up and take notice?

When I was young I thought I wanted to be a ballerina on the stage. I was always inspired by my parents. It seemed they could do anything! My mom was a terrific business woman, loved to travel. She was and is still a splendid artist. My dad was a soulful pilot and later in life an entrepreneur.

My views of the world through their eyes was beautiful and adventurous! To this day, I am still striving to become a better person through my chosen career of a nurse. Striving to help people and encourage others to become all they can be!

What can we do each day to make this a better place? What do you hold dear? I believe we can achieve wondrous things in each of our lives, given the opportunity and fortitude to remain true to our goals! Each and every one of us! It doesn't matter where you come from or where you are right now!

All it takes is a little imagination and a belief in yourself! You can do it! All we have to do is try!

I love America

I am so proud to be an American. I am grateful to all those who fought so that I may have the freedom to express myself freely.
 I am grateful for those who gave their lives so that we may live in peace at home.
I am so proud to be an American for all that we have done to help those in other countries who couldn't help themselves.
  I feel so lucky to be able to choose my destiny. 
Freedom to choose my own life path, my own religion, my lifestyle...

just freedom to be.

Quote of the day


To myself 
I am only a child 
playing on the beach, 
while vast oceans of truth lie 
undiscovered before me.
