gratitude thursday 11/20

akakafalls.pngI am grateful to be alive.

To be living in this cozy home.

To be surrounded by the beautiful things that bring me joy.


To be blessed with wonderful pictures of my trip to Hawai’i. And to have shared them with my hula sistahs and my witchsters and my other friends.

First picture is ‘Akaka Falls. Second one is me standing at Laupohoehoe Point, where the surf is very violent, where in fact a bunch of students and adults were lost in a tsunami.

Beautiful and humbling.


And the third picture is from Lava Tree. Literally what it sounds like. Molten lava hitting a tree and ending up forming around the tree.

I love Pele’s Island—the big island of Hawai’i. It suits me in so many ways. And I love the people.

I am so grateful for this trip.

I am grateful for my coaching call today. I get to reach out and get some help. I need coaching around finances. Jeeze; it’s a tough time to be an American entrepreneur businesswoman. What’s going on with the economy is a painful scary mystery.

I have an altar to Lakshmi and it is time for me to restock my green candles so I can keep the energy moving.

I get to talk through my fears and move into intention with faith and ease.

I am grateful for my noon AA meeting; I am beginning to feel very centered and at home there.

I am grateful; I know I am blessed and that all is well. Blessed be!

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

  1. I’m sorry you had to come back to reality but I’m also happy your back. I would love to hear about Pele’s Island. I’ve seen a documetary and pictures and think it’s a very powerfull force. See you on Sunday.

Chime in!
