Facebooking Your Fears.

Too funny not to post! Facebooking all your fears.
What would it be like if Facebook was actually played out in real life?

Delicious Chaos.

Wow. It was a full on SNOW STORM out there which always brings delicious chaos. I love snow storms. I love a big ass dump of spring snow. It happens pretty much every year and EVERY YEAR people act all surprised. It makes everyone go crazy: driving wacky, crying about spring disappearing... even Lily went outside this morning and stopped in the doorway and gave me one of those WTF looks.
Funny. Amazing how you get a couple of off + on days of spring-like weather and the idea of spring becomes our new habit.

Today: Got OUT OF THE HOUSE. I braved the big dump of snow + ice + sleet to get groceries and stop in for visits with friends. I love snow like this. Early in the spring. I guess it has something to do with being raised in the arctic! Everything took a little longer than I thought it would. The stormy, icy weather meant a little rearranging of TO-DO's and a little bit of bite-your-tongue patience... BUT, I got my errands done, I got the catch up with the girls, I got to paint, and I got a kick-ass sweater for Lily to boot.
I also got a chance to sit back and scrap.
It's still taking me longer than usual to find my digital/hybrid groove and once I find my rhythm I am three times as pissy about being disturbed.
Which makes me frustrated on all kind of levels.
I was happy to be scraping.
Frustrated to hear my chicks having fun/not-fun with someone else.
Happy to have a break.
Sad to be away from them.
Happy to be making some time for myself.
Frustrated that I was taking so long to find my zone.
I want this so I will push until I figure it out.

4 Reals.

This makes my heart full...
I am so sorry if I offended anyone by calling us "Losers...That was not my intention what-so-ever. Maybe it would have been better to say that we are are "Spiritually Lost" at one time or the other....and right smack dab in the middle of my "Lack of Lustre", this morning I came across this...

What fills your heart? Inquiring minds need to know.

Yes...we are all Losers
I admit...
I have fallen victim to Face-book although I don't know how to maneuver around it too well and am unsure of who sees what, when and where, but darn it if I don't give it effort and time...too much time.
I suppose I could be more frustrated with Face-book. Apparently there have been changes and you know what happens when there are changes in life....luckily, I was never used to the "old Face-book home page" so I do not get "lost" with the "new home page." Again though, I do get frustrated at myself at the amount of time I put into pretending that I know what I am doing.
Coincidentally, this whole Face-book Frustration thing is very similar to my spiritual life and actually, the more I reflect on things, there more I can relate it to many situations in life...if you put enough time and energy into anything, you will learn, connect and who knows...maybe develop a new relationship.
If you don't put effort and time into wilts, it lacks substance, it appears dull.......

It's so hard for me to explain where I am right now. 
I'm just in between.
I'm in between feeling settled + new. 
I'm in between feeling grown up + young. 
I'm in between just feeling oddly at a starting place in so many areas of my life + also feeling grounded.
I'm in between dream living + wondering if it's all real. 
I'm in between knowing who I am + becoming someone new. 
I'm in between giving up what's not working + clinging to what feels familiar. 
I'm in between this vague space of practical things + living more simplified.
I'm in between deeply wanting to figure out which path is mine + which path is far too distant.. 
I'm in between making life long friends here + maybe just passer-by-ers. 
I'm in between spirit wandering + waiting for the moment to tangle up with another.
I'm in between my tears of good + healing.
I'm in between finding myself deeply longing for family + being okay by myself. 
I'm just in between.

Breathing+ Balance.

Dan Millman: To be in Balance, it’s essential to have the breath in Balance. When we’re angry, the exhalation tends to be stronger than the inhalation. When we’re sad, the inhalation tends to be stronger than the exhalation. When we’re feeling fear, we don’t breathe much at all. By bringing the breath back into Balance…it helps bring our life back into Balance.

Happy Friday.

So inspired by color today + posters!  I totally [heart] words that tell a story!

In The News.

Hello March.

This is currently one of my picture frames displayed in my bedroom. I totally [heart] it!  It's a get up + go kinda phrase for the mornings that totally need that extra little something when Starbucks is not around the corner!
