Our 900th Article - How ya doing?

I am happy to say it's our 900th article!!! Wow!  I am so amazed by this.  To be honest I should be way ahead by now, but you know what?  I'm going to say, "Thank God" I am still writing in spite of it all, that is. life's journey, family involvement and all the other things that goes around. 

I do love to write and share and I will continue to do so.  I promise to be up and "running" even more than before as soon as things on my end have quietened down a bit.  I wanted to know one thing though my dear readers, as Wendy Williams, a television personality and talk show host would ask, "How ya doin'?"

Operation Motivation: How can Remapping help your way of thinking?

Earlier on Monday I sent the following tweet:

 16 hours ago16 hours agoRemapping the way I think. Is that possible?

I wanted to share that because I've been thinking a certain way lately, and I feel as if I've been robbing myself of my joy. The real me is not shining through at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I am my true self, however, my way of thinking has not been the norm due to so many factors in my life lately.  I am focused on one way of thinking and it's really sopping my spirit!

If Only my Computer could Read for Me

I was thinking along those lines recently as I was busy getting ready to start my day. I usually have my phone or iPad w/me and being in the bathroom was nothing strange trying to take care of myself, bath, makeup, etc., clicking through the dings I hear from my phone & other electronic devices notifying me of new content. 

As my devices continued to "blow up", as my teen likes to say, I tried to balance clicking each, plus putting on make up, comb my hair, all the while wishing I could just voice instructions to "open up my email and read them to me".  Does this technology exists?

Musical Obsession: Music to Suit Your Vibes

I love music, who doesn't?  I haven't met anyone who dislikes music. Why would they?  Music transports you to another place, and even time.  Much like a photograph when you look at it, your imagination rolls with what you hear, and you're either, dancing, sighing and indulging, or it calms your spirit. 

I like Google Play a lot because of the variety of music it offers me. I also love that I can get free, yes, FREE music some of the time. Lately I discovered that I have a choice of different genres of music by way of free curated music on different stations.

Are you tired of being Motivated?

Have you ever lost your passion for something that you're doing?  How did you handle it?  Did this loss make you feel even more lost; or were you able to get over "it" and move on to something else? I'm sure you're probably tired of everyone telling you to keep yourself motivated; or how to be motivated?  Even me perhaps as I talk about this a lot!

Being Still

It is not often that we do this for ourselves.  Being still, as in, standing (or sitting) still, not moving. It is the posture that many who practices the art of Yoga and/or meditation do.  They will often end up sitting still, being quiet, reflective, breathing deeply, listening, engrossed in that moment of time, in stillness.
"The soul always knows what to do to heal itself.  the challenge is to silence the mind." Caroline Myss
How often do you become still? Or can you remember a moment of stillness, no movements, just solitude and you?  We are all so caught up in our world and what is going on around us that we don't know how to be still and listen. Oh yes, listening is a part of it.  You become still, and you listen, to yourself.
