Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

Good Morning from Me and My Barky Bushy (Trial Vid)

Morning Sun Effect - Eragnyby: Camille Pissarto
PS: This vid is supposed to loop but instead stalls just when 
I say "have a nice day, mwah" haha! Pressing replay completes the message, lols!

Gad, can't believe it, but It's been a a couple ov' weeks filled with fluey' ventures. I refuse to ascribe this sickie' situation to, ahem, age! O'goodness never, haha! I know folks two decades older than good ol' meeh' who move and live like fresh spring chickies, eh! I probably have to tweak the way I do life. My exercising is good, but I know my eating habits have to be improved.

Seriously, it's pretty pesky to be dragged down like a wet bamboo-dazzled squirrel. At the risk of sounding lame + boring, I have to utter my bedraggled frustration for feeling chest coldy' and head-achy. Never been bothered by headaches before, then again, life's telling me why not, why not, why not now?!?

I'm feeling a tad better, thank goodness. - but there's still this allergy vibe I feel in my tight chest, and throat, up to my face in my puffed up eyes, sensitive facial pain, and tight band head feely'. Sigh!

Anyway, I woke up feeling good this morning and decided to put in make-up to make myself come alive, haha! I intend to make short clippy video journals so this is a start.

I've lots to learn and editing stuff to have if I want to make my videos clear and understandable. For now, I've no choice but to work with free online editors. Eventually, I'd migrate to Youtube  but it'd be better  to do that when I'm already whole lot techie' creative.

The Birth of a Thought on an Ash Wednesday Morning

 O' Jesus, attract my heart, and confirm it in your love. Grant that detached from all things and uninfluenced by the allurements of self love, I may breath only your love,  and neither seek nor love anything but you in all  things. ~ Reflections, Vatican ll

A dozen fetching cutie possibilities I dunno' where to start! All I know is to  make these series of months pop alive with pinks, lavenders, yellows, creams and all whimsical shade of greens! 

I feel compelled to create so many beautiful dainty things. ornaments, adornments, - by hand - my imagination is running wild with colors & blueprints which tell a tale of pretty. ! 

⊰✿ It is a wild thankful thought melting in the aperture of my wits.  I'm growing into smiles and understanding; an all  encompassing acceptance of every cleverness,  haha!  Maybe this is wisdom, arms outstretched in the quintessence of living.

"My First Zumba Experience!!"

Look for good things about where you are, and in your state of appreciation, you lift all self-imposed limitations - and all limitations are self-imposed - and you free yourself for the receiving of wonderful things.

Looking Up High by: Roselle Quin
I can't believe it! My first ever Zumba-licious workout experience this early Monday morning went exceptionally well --considering my  internal fears of not being able to catch up with a group and looking like a fool. I'm not the most coordinated of people' - in fact, aside from seeming to have two left footsies' that refuse to see eye to eye when it comes to fast motion dancing......
I've always felt awkward swaying any part of my body: hips, waist, legs, arms - you name it! I prefer stability - feet on the ground, or even one  leg raised in a balanced sun salutation. Give me poses and planks that are certain, and I'll manage. Dancing and prancing and arms up down loose swaying in tune with hips gyrating and legs stepping in and out of music might as well be Algebra to me.

Imagine my surprise having finished the session drenched in perspiration and panting from exhaustion - the sure great signs of victory! Body fat loss  and cardiovascular pumping was my goal.

I'm greatly appreciative to have a supportive mentor who takes the time to analyze what sort of movements, lifting and stretching are best for me. It's good to have someone analyze your weaknesses and what strength you can build on to reach your health goal.

"You will know your path by the fun of it." ~ LOA

It takes 21 days to build a habit they say. Well, I've started the year with yoga and running. Every day I have to psyche myself up somewhat and remind myself of what my spirit wants, which is strength, A great many people have such confidence when it comes to setting health goals and achieving them. Sadly, I'm NOT --> them because honestly, I present myself such magnanimous setbacks. 

But today, I'm expecting the best from myself. 
Tomorrow, I will too. 
And the next day, 
and the next.
