Happy Week, and possibly Trails

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend! It’s rainy and yucky in Northern California, but that’s okay…I’ve finally gotten a chance to catch up on your blogs. It was a good sales week for me, I sold three prints on etsy:

I have a new project in the works, which I am very excited about. If you’ve purchased any of my prints you know that I include a special *gift.* I will be featuring them this week in my shop, finally! I sold out of them before they arrived on etsy…please stay tuned!

Oh and about the “Possibly trails”…..I feel as if I have overgrown wordpress. I love wordpress very much, but it’s not very practical when running a business. I am not able to post javascript, and that makes it difficult with etsy. I am not sure if I will just transfer everything over to typepad, but I have been thinking about making the move. For $4.95 a month, I can have peace of mind, security…and many more outlets for my blog. I don’t want to keep moving around, but with not being able to make this blog “my own” it’s a struggle. Please feel free to share your input if you’ve made the move over to typepad, or have any ideas. Hope the weekend is going well, and again thank you for being the best peeps I could ask for!

Yay!!!! (UPDATED)

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you for your sweet comments! I hope the test went well. Shockingly I think I did the best on the math portion. If you’d like the percentage, area, or need help with fractions, I think I’m your gal 😉 Regular posts will resume this week! Woooohooooo!!! Here’s something I found this week when I was studying, and it really helped me put everything into perspective, and not worry about the outcome. I did the best I could, it’s no longer in my hands. I hoped for the best, and the best outcome will come come out of this!

Beginning Today

Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday.
It is in the past and the past will never change.
Only I can change by choosing to do so.

Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it.
But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today.

Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration.
This person looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.

Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life.
I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will unselfishly share this gift with others.
I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others.

Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path and to revel in the mysteries I encounter.
I will face challenges with courage and determination.
I will overcome what barriers there may be which hinder my quest for growth and self-improvement.

Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time.
Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love.

Beginning today I will walk with renewed faith in human kindness.
Regardless of what has gone before, I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future.

Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart.
I will welcome new experiences.
I will meet new people.
I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world.
But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human shortcomings.

Beginning today I am responsible for my own happiness and I will do things that make me happy. . .admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath. . .pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.

Beginning today I will learn something new;
I will try something different;
I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer.
I will change what I can and the rest I will let go.
I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.

Beginning today. And every day.

Missed YOU!

Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. My apologies for not blogging as frequently and for not visiting your blog. Earlier in the week I was ill, and on Thursday my grandma went into the hospital. She’s doing much better, thank goodness. Needless to say, I’ve missed you all and hope that this week will run smoother than the last. I can’t wait to see all the goodies I’ve missed on your blogs, you all inspire me so much. By the way, I received my new camera this week, and I took some photos today. Since I’ve been such a bad blogger, I’ve decided to post three instead of my usual one. I hope I’m forgiven 🙂

Gratitude

Thank you so much for all of your kind words. I am feeling a whole lot better, thanks to your well wishes 🙂 I don’t know if you watched Martha today, but Maya Angelou was on, and this was one of the many WONDERFUL things I picked up on.

 Anything happens good or bad I say thank you. If it's bad I know this too shall pass away.  I am able I am alright I will live through this. No matter how grueling and even threatening it is. I will live through this, so thank you for bringing me through this. If it's good, I say hallelujah thank you. Dance. Maya Angelou
