Angel with a Flower in Her Hair

She was here, in my patio when I moved in, but so tucked away it was days before I found her. Every year, nature adorns my shy garden angel in different ways, reminding me that even shy people look beautiful with a flower in their hair.

The bright pink flower is a hibiscus. I don't even know the name of the purple one. They both need water, fertilizer, and pruning. The hibiscus requires a sudsy spray of dish washing liquid to protect her from aphids.

She and my small garden remind me of relationships. They flourish with nurturing care and protection from pests. Sometimes you have to cut off the parts that don't work, so that the healthy parts can thrive. It's good to be kind, even if you don't know a person's name.

Sending you a summer smile with love,

How to Love Yourself

Have you ever reacted to the advice, "love yourself" with a grimace? Just like the saying, "If you want peace, be peaceful," that love yourself stuff is real. If you want love, be loving. Begin with you.

If you wonder how, here are some thoughts to consider for you and anyone who faces challenges in relationships today.
  • Value your dear Self!
  • Take extra good care of your precious Self.
  • Go out of your way to be kind and thoughtful to your Self
  • Protect your Self
  • Stand up for your Self
  • Do something really thoughtful for your Self
  • Be generous with your Self
  • Be understanding and supportive of your Self
Set an example! It's up to you to teach the rest of us and the universe how to treat you. After all, if you don't want to bother, why should anyone else?

Wishing you great love and happiness!

Writing, Recovery, Publishing.

Interested in writing? Publishing? Recovery from painful experiences? How about Miracles? Here are two resources for you.

Mary Metcalfe publishes a blog for writers and readers. She interviewed me after reading my book, "Travelling Free, How to Recover from the Past by Changing Your Beliefs".

Her questions were challenging, probing and insightful. I liked them and answered them all. Here's the link to her interview.

Is It Time to Declare Your Indepence?

Did you know that here in the USA we celebrate the
declaration of independence on the 4th of July? The
unlikely victory did not come until 7 long years later.

Is it time for you to declare your independence from
someone or something?

This deeply personal article will tell you how an
angel (a real one) helped me to declare mine. I read
it every year and send it out again because there is
always more freedom to win!

To your happiness and independence!


Your thoughts and Declarations are welcome and inspiring.
