Spring Cleaning Anyone?


Spring symbolizes new beginnings, time of re-birthing  In this part of the world it has become a tradition to de-clutter; to get rid of that which is not needed any more. Houses are cleaned and remodeled bringing new light; a new sparkling face. Winter clothing is donated or stacked up in boxes. Even our eating habits change, going from earthy warm soups to fresh salads, fruits, and refreshing cold drinks. We change with the seasons. Spring is Mother Nature’s way to tell us, “get rid of the old and make room for the new and exciting in your life.” This applies also to our personal lives, something seldom omitted. So, how does a real spring cleaning should look like?

1.       De-clutter your mind first. There are no new beginnings without a new mentality.
2.       A change in attitude changes the way life will unfold. Check up the attitudes that have been denying you of the opportunity to succeed.
3.       De-clutter your body. Get out and move. Enjoy what nature has to offer. Give your body the gift of sunny days and breezy mornings.
4.       Eat healthy. Take advantage of your local farmers or better off, plant your own garden.
5.       Nurture your spirit. Get in contact with those forces that guide you. Follow your intuition and pay attention to your inner voice.
6.       Do something different, walk off the beaten path, explore, and discover.

Robin Williams once said: “Spring is nature’s way to say, Let’s Party.” Let’s honor her by taking care of us first giving back the best of what we have to offer. Happy spring cleaning from the inside out!

From the Children...



"Children have a lesson adults should learn, to not be ashamed of failing, but to get up and try again. Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so 'safe,' and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle-aged adults have resigned themselves to failure.”

May there be Peace


Peace Lily is more than just another beautiful flower created in heaven. Spathiphyllum is it genus and it means peace and prosperity thus its ability to purify the air and promoting harmony wherever is planted. Elegant, star-shaped, with white flowers, and rich green leaves it promotes a gentle state of calmness. Indeed, mother earth has provided us with everything we need, when we need it.

Any day is a good day to let our spirit lose and create. That’s exactly what I have been dedicated to in my own way. Enjoyed the sun, chatted with some new friends, played in my in progress urban garden, and finally sat down next to my Lily from where I am sharing this with you. It doesn't really matter what you are doing as long as you are truly feeling it, enjoying it; creating a moment to be remembered.

Every day is a great opportunity to bring peace to our daily, sometimes hectic life. In my case I chose nature to make this one meaningful. What are you doing to make this day special to you? My Lily goes to you as a reminder of your gifts to create and enjoy every minute in peace.

Totally in love with life as it is…

"When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with other."

Sparkling!



“Shine like the sun!” – My grandma used to say. Back in the days that was translated into play in the dirt, run wild, and plan your escapades to the closest river, even knowing that if caught I would suffer from a spank.  Today, her words come with a different meaning I have been able to fully understand through life.

I love my days off; that time when I can do what I want, when I want. No schedules set and no agenda to follow. I am sure you love those too. I have learned though how to shine in between both worlds. When I am teaching I am shedding my light to my young souls, I become one with their dreams and visions of a great future. When I am in my world, I am also lightning up, when I can create and do what I love; writing, searching, reading, connecting with others and listening to their stories. That’s what I have been doing for the last couple of days. I draw upon my own light. So, this morning while waking up my grandmother’s words hit me again turned into brand new lessons:

1.       You never lose if you don’t lose the lesson.
2.       Spend some me and I time every day.
3.        Silence is sometimes the best answer.
4.       Live a good life so you can enjoy it a second time when you get older.
5.       Once a year, go someplace you've never been before and mingle.
6.       Learn all the rules and then find the way to break them under your own terms.
7.       Approach what you love with reckless abandon, over and over.

Wherever you are; whatever the situation, under a schedule or enjoying some free time find your light and then sparkle bright!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great story by Paulo Coehlo. Real life down to earth characters struggling to find the meaning of life; a mirror of what we all go through day by day. The amazing story of Linda makes us ponder and question. What's life's ultimate purpose? What force moves us? What is it that we should all strive for?
