Reconnection

What sort of emotions and memories come to mind when you think of the word reconnection? I’m sure many. We all have many memories and experiences in our pasts, as well as people that evoke all sorts of different emotions. Recalling a memory can bring back feelings of joy, sadness, anxiety, bliss.

When situations repeat themselves, or we reconnect with loved ones from our past, so many emotions start to resurface. It can be a wonderful feeling to reconnect after a long time, or it could bring back memories that we would rather leave in the past. Sometimes it’s worth reconnecting with people from our past if both people have matured and can get past whatever distanced them to begin with, other times it’s best to leave the past in the past.

If someone, or something from your past resurfaces, if you are comfortable, take some time to explore it to get an idea if that is something, or someone you want back in your life. Take it slow and see where it takes you and remember you are in control and can decide to cut ties whenever you please. Take every chance you can in life, sometimes it is a great joy to take a familiar walk down memory lane!

To-Do List

With so many responsibilities in life, I’m sure that many of us have a to-do list, planner, journal, calendar, etc. It helps us keep track of what’s to come and helps keep us organized and on top of things. I never really used to make a to-do list except for college, I always relied on my memory to remember what I needed to do, but these days with so much going on and a brain that doesn’t remember like it used to, I need a calendar and a to-do list!

I actually enjoy crossing off things that are completed off of my list, it gives me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. There is something so satisfying about crossing out something that you once had to do! It gives you motivation to keep going and to get things done. Being organized definitely makes life a lot easier and less forgetting makes life less stressful! I wish you all a beautiful week, as always thank you for reading.

Simple Pleasures

How could something so small bring us so much joy? Yet, the simple and little things in life are what sometimes makes us the happiest. The smell of pumpkin pie reminding us of the holidays, the snow falling down, the sun on our face, a dessert, a sweet message from a friend, the little things in life bring us so much happiness.

My mom was making her delicious chocolate chip cookies the other day and I enjoyed every bit of them with a cold glass of milk. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite dessert ever, so simple, yet so delicious and amazing. I was thinking to myself how something as small as a cookie could bring so much joy and be such a pick-me-up. Often the little things in life are attached to memories, which makes them even more special. What is your favorite dessert? What are some of your favorite simple pleasures!?

A Message For Me

The world around us is in constant communication with us. If we take time to notice, there are signs and messages meant for us to discover. Some messages are blatantly obvious and others are more subtle, but each are important to us as we navigate through life.

For over six months now, I have seen 11:11 on the clock at least once, but sometimes twice a day. This number I have always referred to as the “make a wish” number, but it wasn’t until I started seeing it all the time that I learned of another possible meaning. Apparently the numbers 11:11 are strongly connected to the spiritual world and when seen, are a sign that you are on the right life path. I of course was happy to hear this! The interesting thing is that now I am aware of this, one would think that I would stop seeing 11:11, however I don’t, it doesn’t stop no matter how busy I am, it’s still there. Maybe I have not discovered its full meaning, or maybe it’s merely a strange coincidence.

Some of you may not believe in these sorts of messages, everyone is different, but for those of you that do, are there any other meanings of 11:11 that you know of? Have you ever received a message from Above that drew your attention? Please feel free to share!

Go For It

Most of us have dreams and aspirations that we hope to achieve at some point in our lives. We have this vision of how we would like life to pan out and it probably hasn’t gone exactly as planned. There are deep desires within us, things that we would like in our lives, that would make us feel whole. There is a burning desire to reach our goals and find happiness.

For some of us, our life goal may be the perfect career, marriage, having children, serving our country, going to college, or just making the world a better place to live in. Whatever our goal may be, we find happiness and hope in trying to pursue it. The end result is hopefully eventually fulfilling our dream.

Sometimes life hands us things that we were not prepared for and many of us get busy in our every day lives and put our dreams on hold. Some of us are waiting for that perfect moment to start working towards our dreams…there is no perfect moment! Start now, your life most likely will not play out as you have envisioned, but it will still be beautiful. If you don’t start today, you may miss the opportunity of a lifetime. Go after what you want in life and don’t stop until you get there!
