It's taken me a while to figure out how to open today's entry. I'm still not completely sure what will emerge but, I'm going to type away and surprise us both. Lol
Oh, darling November 2017. It's been a robust month as we just crossed the half-way point. This month is set aside to ponder on and express one's gratitude (who made this up anyway?) which is an incredible practice that I wholeheartedly believe in. I believe it should be recognized on a daily basis as it plays a vital role in creating balance in one's life.
November has been pretty good to me. I've felt jovial, grounded, strong and almost untouchable. I had (in my mind) grounded enough into the the eye of my storm that I believed I'd be unfazed by much of anything.
I was wrong.
Not only was I fazed, I was moved. I was excited. Excited to be excited, as I can't recall the last time I'd been that excited. Then right on cue, settled in the fear of excitement. Inevitably, shifted. And like most shifts, it came with some crumbling and destruction to foundation and it's appropriate amount of grief. The sinkhole was just a tad wider and deeper than I'd anticipated. Fuck. But, it was good. Thank you for the shakeup and green light to be vulnerable and excited. Thank you for your role in the Divine Feminine. Good. The beginning, the middle and the end. In greater news, the damage done to the foundation was only surface as the roots and groundwork were left untouched. Unscathed. Grateful.
This is my magical bar of soap. - P. Jarvis
Born in the womb and ingrained in the sea's floor, our connection, mother and daughter is where I draw my power, the Universe provides me grace and the Creator is most certainly strong enough for me. She's taught me. I know better. Again, I'm grateful.
I've decided that for the next 24 hours I shall only live in gratitude. Every time a negative thought attempts to enter my mind, I will replace it with a positive thought and shift it right back to gratitude. I'd like to see first hand what happens exactly when one remains in gratitude.
To kick start my Gratitude Project, I'd like to share a few things I'm grateful for. They are as follows, but not limited to:
Those are just a few things I'm grateful for and I will close this post today by sharing something my grandmother said to me some years ago. She said, "If you can't deal with the "mess" or drama of others, let me save you some suspense, you'll never encounter nor find the love you so seek." For that pearl of wisdom, I am grateful. What are you grateful for?

*Swish, scratch, swish*...went the brushes and palm swipes of seven-subtly, eager artists against their roughly-textured and prepped canvases. Resonating incredibly soothing feels, like a medium-bristled brush being lovingly and carefully raked through her hair. It gave her the chills (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
She, steadily walked down the busy road, yet there were no appropriate sidewalks and cars were whizzing by. At any given time, there may have been a million questions/comments/thoughts/replays/intentions and words traveling along the synapses of her nerve endings, overflowing her system and blowing her mind (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
