Wow, this has certainly been a hectic year. And here it is almost over!!! I keep shaking my head and muttering "What the heck happened?" Oh well, didn't get much of anything done... at least not what I planned and wanted to do. And that's ok. I've learned that being flexible is absurdly important in living life well. Thats MENTAL and EMOTIONAL flexibility!!!! hahaha
Though physical flexibility is absolutely awesome as well! Hmmm, wonder what happened to my good intentions of starting to practice yoga again? chuckle (Next year perhaps!) And I did purchase those two belly dancing belts! Wow! What high aspirations I had for myself this year! Hey, a gal can hope and dream. That's VERY important in life! And then if it doesn't come to pass.... do NOT beat yourself up for it! We are so hard on ourselves! I don't understand why. Things happen. Sometimes life "gets in the way" and either slows us down or derails us completely. For a lot of us, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes we need to stop and look more closely at things. Weigh our options before we proceed. Perhaps use a little more caution or decide to change direction entirely. There are times you need to stop and reassess what you are doing. Is it for your greater good? Does it match up to your true desires and aspirations? Does it feel "right"? Or do you feel like you're bashing your head against a huge boulder? All pain and no gain is a bad thing!!!!
Anyway, you get my drift.... be happy, be healthy, be good and spread some joy whenever you can! This world offers limitless possibilities.... if we are open to them and remain flexible about how we let them manifest in our lives. That old saying is true, we don't always get what we want, but we do get what we need. (Yes, that was a saying long before that Rolling Stone song came along.)
So, I'll keep plugging along here, doing the best that I can. I have some more photos to post (even butterflies as they quiescent!), little stories to share and a whole lot of blessings to wish everyone! Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go jingle around the house in one of those belly dancing belts! Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!
