Wallets on a Chain - The Perfect Solution!

The Grocery Store Shop What's for Dinner???? We all love this question? Don't we? Ha!   Less is Best!  Have you been wondering about what kind of handbag to use on your jaunts to the grocery store or pharmacy?  A tote or bulky handbag is completely out of the question.  You are already wearing a mask maybe latex gloves and would prefer to have your hands free. Therefore a huge handbag or cross body will get in the way of your efforts.  It is advisable to not leave your handbag in the cart either though we have all known this for ages. The germs are everywhere and theft is always a possibility.  When you are ready to pay, you will want to access your cards, iPhone quickly and efficiently without searching at the bottom of a monstrously filled handbag.  I have tried carrying cards in a coat pocket which works though lipstick, car fob, hand sanitizer and sunglasses are also jammed into other pockets. This is rather a jolly mess. I even forgot that I h

Road to Infinite Possibilities

You're the Pilot Finding Your Inner Self, Life Intention and Joy "Gratitude places you in the energy field of plenitude.  Glow with gratitude and see how awe and joy will make their home in you." Michael Benard Beckwith Self-created inner peace, calm and joy is developed by those who chose to find it.  It becomes the core of who they are and shines wherever they go or when they speak and act.  The avenue to finding personal intention in life with joy is a constant struggle.  Especially with a steady vibration of negative noise at our fingertips emanating from the news, pundits, and self proclaimed sage advisers. Unfortunately, all news organizations have become pedantic, dismal, scream fests and darkly disturbing.  Most of the country continues to be on lock down and has flattened the curve.  The primary focus beyond the ramifications of the deadly virus is the challenge of lost jobs, hard earned retirements, recreational activities, connection to other

Little House on the Prairie - Minimalist Lifestyle

A New Set of Keys There are several new keys we are using.  Do you know what yours are? Change "Be the change you want to see in the world" - Mohandas Gandhi CHANGE is inevitable and always the First Key .  Each of us are living out a new way of life and trying to deal with it gracefully. After all what choice do you have?  Sink or swim?  Passive or fight?  Of course, you chose to fight and survive. Changing and evolving is the step to mental and physical freedom. Don't live in a state of fear. Don't let the news swallow you up and make you anxious. Rather follow guidelines, wear a mask, wash hands and sanitize.  Laugh, sing and build your mental strength.  Do not let fear override your life.  You are strong. You are capable and you are wise.  Leaders are not born they are made.  Be a leader and set an example for all to see.  Your words and actions matter. ADAPT "Adaptability is being able to adjust to any situatio

Let it Be - The Joy of Music

Let it Be - The Beatles When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness She is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be. Whisper words or wisdom, let it be. And when the broken hearted people Living in the world agree, There will be an answer, let it be. For though they may be parted there is Still a chance that they will see There will be an answer, let it be Let it be, let it be.  Yeah There will be an answer, let it be. And when the night is cloudy There is still a light that.... During this troubled time a simple song or book can fill our hearts and minds.  Let it Be by the Beatles is one of several songs that fit the tune.  Recently, a friend of mine who is recovering from illness decided to learn how to play the ukulele.  She sent a video on social media of her singing, Let it Be, by The Beatles.  The song is in

Groundhog Day - New Normal

Life April 2020 Sheltering in place is the new normal across our country and around the world. In fact, as of April 2nd, 3.9B people are remaining in their homes only to go out for groceries, medicine or for exercise with a 6 feet parameter.  Each day might be similar to the day before with slight variations.  Maybe you went to the local grocer, had one conference call instead of five or went on a longer walk. Perchance you spoke to family of friends, read a book or made a wonderful dinner.  The variances though small mean everything during this time. Do you remember the movie, Groundhog Day (1993) staring Bill Murray as Phil Connors and Andie McDowell as Rita?  If not, it is a must see especially now when each of us are doing everything we can to flatten the spread of the COVID 19 virus.  The film is about a cynical and self absorbed weatherman who relives the same day over and over again. His assignment is to visit Punxsutwney, Pennsylvania to film the annual Groundhog
