Today, I am happy.


Today, I am happy.

Today, I see the beauty in the world,

The beauty so many are blind to,

The beauty often forgotten in the midst of life.

Today, I am free.

Free to run,

Run as far as my body will carry me,

Run to the end of the world and back.

Free to fly,

To leave the world behind

And live in my dreams.

Today, I am beautiful.

As I stare at my body in the mirror,

I don’t see the imperfections.

I’m not pretty, I’m not flawless,

But I am beautiful.

Today, I am fearless.

Because I know that I can overcome anything,

And I can take whatever this world may offer

And more,

Because I am powerful, courageous, and strong.

Today, I am at peace.

The world is beautiful, and I see it.

Today, I know that everyone has a plan,

And I know that mine will be wonderful.

Today, I know that I am not alone.

My soul mate is out there,

And someday, we’ll find each other.

Today, I will dance

To the beat of my heart,

To the music of life,

To the rhythm of the Earth.

Today, I am happy.


The Power of Dreams


Never underestimate your dreams- they can take you to amazing places.

This probably seems pretty random, but I have a reason for posting this. The other night, I had a remarkable dream. It was about a queen, and I was her lady-in-waiting… I can’t describe it how it really was, but it inspired my next book. I’ll finish the one I’m working on first, but I’m really excited about this one.

Like most dreams, it was pretty abstract at first, but after thinking it over, it made more sense. After talking it through with my friend, it developed into an entire plot for a novel, and I think it’s very unique.

I’ll have more information on my progress once I start (although it may be awhile), but I wanted to let you all know that your dreams can do amazing things. People often find that as you get older, your creativity is completely squashed out of you. That may be what you think, but your subconscious is capable of a lot more than you’d think; give it a chance.  It may surprise you.

What do you think?  Have you had any inspiring dreams?

Snowy Winter Days and a Cup of Calm


Today, I was lucky enough to have been snowed in and taken a day off.  I’ve never been much for winter- I’m always telling myself I’ll move somewhere sunny- but I realized I’ve forgotten why I love the cold and the snow.  This morning, I played relaxing music, curled up in a few fuzzy blankets with a cup of Cran-Apple Green Tea, a winter favorite, and worked on writing my book in front of the window.  I have to say, it reminded me why I love this type of weather.

My mid-morning relaxation inspired me to project my thoughts to others, and I decided to start a blog.  I’ve always wanted to, but I never have had a real, successful blog.  I’d like to write about…well, a lot.  Fashion, DIY, cooking, art, music, writing, the list goes on.

Chances are, I’ll be home tomorrow as well, so I’m hoping for more of the same peaceful, calm relaxation, and hopefully more inspiration.
