As This year come to an end I am grateful for what I have been through, overcome , created, the people I have loved and all those moods that make up me. I was hiding and sleeping through so much but thats all over now. I will be 40 next year and I am so excited. I am starting over and I am ok. I believe our biggest fear is fear itself and if only we just believed in ourselves as much as out best girlfriend does.... well the rest would be amazing...
I was looking for my most favorite read of the year and no its not a book its a quote...
She let go
She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore.

|I was blog surfing the other day . I had Isabella sitting with me and I looked at this super cute skirt this girl said she made and I thought I want to make a skirt too... so I googled sewing classes in San Diego and found this cute little sewing store Home EccStudio|
that teaches How to make a skirt class!!!!
I was so excited I signed up and next thing you know ...There I was taking a sewing class and making my own skirt. I was a little nervous thinking I might not have enough time to finish it. The teacher was very patient and knowledgeable and the other students were very sweet. It was a cozy class room and I rate this cute little store 4 stars. I was able to keep up and I finished my skirt in about 2 hours :) I am very proud of myself.
So you know what I a thinking about right? Making a skirt for Isabella and Paola and my cute nieces. I love being a girl and loving all things girly!!!
So I was thinking what is your favorite thing you learned to make this year or what was your favorite class, on line classes totally count?

The Space Between Part 2...
So after we all settled in and got to know each other Bonnie made some wonderful cookies. Then we got into the art part of the retreat. Patty led us in some wonderful exercises and showed us some fun art journaling tricks.
This is our art table... It looks like candy don't you think? Everyone was in a great place playing with words and paints, coloring and sharing our creations. It was a perfect day. Getting started is my favorite part of the creating process with friends. I especially like the noise associated with the hustle and bustle… I also love the part right after we have been taught something new when the room gets quite because everyone has found their creative art tingle…
I found this quote and thought it was perfect for what I was feeling.
All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.::: Eckhart Tolle :::
|Here is my creation...|
