How can we change an obstacle into pure joy? November 26, 2014

This video came across my Facebook feed the other day and I simply fell in love with it.  First off I’ll admit I have a soft spot for sweet animal videos but this one really got me.  So I contacted the young woman to see if it was on youtube and if so may I use it.  Hence it was uploaded and here is a horse who’s name is Magic… Really, I love it! This lovely horse was frightened of the water until his amazingly young rider helped him to move past the fear (who’s the life coach here? 🙂 )  And not only did he move past it it but it became pure joy, for both horse and rider.
Which got me to thinking about how one can move past a fear and not only turn it into joy but create joy for someone else as well.  And the answer is perception. How are you viewing the fearful situation?  If you change the way you view it it just might surprise you.  It will change.  A question I ask myself when confronted with a situation or something I’d rather not have in my life I ask myself, “What can I learn right now?” or “Where do I want to go from here”  There is always something to learn in any given situation. And then I ask how I can shift my energy and for me I find 10 things I’m grateful for.  Which immediately brings me into the moment and straight into Gratitude.
What a perfect time to talk about gratitude!  Thanksgiving is tomorrow in the States and it’s a wonderful opportunity to look at all that is abundant and wonderful in our life.  Wishing you a joyful grateful Thanksgiving!  What a spectacular way to move into joy and shift from… well, just about anything!
Have a Magical Day!
Lot so Love

“It’s a blustery day in the hundred acre woods” November 2, 2014

This morning our power went out, luckily only for a brief stint but our internet went out for… well it’s out now and we’re not certain when we will get it back. I love this weather enforced down time. Our television is web based and when the internet goes so does the television. The quiet in the house is really lovely. All I hear is a man tinkering and a little one playing and creating stories with her legos.

 

I don’t know about you but when I get going I go! I can lose track of the quiet times, the down moments, the not doing. With all my focus on staying in the moment I can get wrapped up in the doing. So this begs the question: What do you do to stop and smell the proverbial flowers? Or fly the kite? I’m looking out my windows at the trees swaying to the remarkable wind that is definitely a Winnie the pooh kind of day.  Today for me it was loosing our power and internet (this post is obviously posting after the fact).

 

Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday!

Lots of Love!

~Sarah
