I woke up this morning and I'm feeling....I'm feeling....I'm feeling all right. I got up, did my morning stretches, centered myself (with loving self talk), and revved my body - woke it up. I got up and had my walk. As I set out down the block, I was a bit startled when I saw a house in the neighborhood had been torn down. Another house. Poof. Gone. A big huge space - that will be filled with a big huge house. Deep breath Rebecca. There are changes.
I did my podcast about it. It's weird - because the topic I was going to discuss matched the feelings I had when I saw the house had been taken down.
I continued my walk, embraced all the feelings coming up, looked around, and began to remember - hey - ok - things change - things are changing. That's ok. Fall is right around the corner. The seasons are changing. I started to look around and took pictures of things that caught my eye. Colors that gave my eyes some entertainment. I will post some pictures on Twitter and Instagram.
I know I've been going off roadin' into different topics. I was working on my beauty care routine and cleaning out my clothes - and then I took a little break on the clothes. I'm still working on my beauty care routine. I ordered some goodies from Botanic Organic. I really love their products. As the samples are used up - I'm excited to have my new stuff ready for me to use. They make a great line of beauty care products. I highly recommend you check them out.
As for the clothes - I'll get to them. I think this garage project, taking longer than I expected, wiped me out a little. I'm done with the inside of the garage - but I still have boxes of photographs to go through. And...a huge box of old writings that I want to go through. I found a YA story - I think I had written it when I was pregnant or when my son was very young. I'm so excited to see it again. I forgot about it. I read it to him yesterday - and I realized - it's pretty good. He said he thinks it's very good and could be very popular. That's the best review I could get. I'm thinking to work on it a little - spiff it up - and have it published on Amazon. So stay tuned...
So, as I walked through the neighborhood - my neighborhood that is changing - I noticed houses that haven't changed. I noticed one house - that although it changed and got a bit fancier - one thing - that always pleased me - has stayed. I used to go by this house and admire all the birdhouses in the trees. I just loved it. Tons of birdhouses scattered in the trees. They still have the birdhouses in the trees. They are older, weathered, and well loved - and still there. I took a couple of pictures. It made me so happy to see the new embrace the old. There are two trees filled with these sweet birdhouses. The picture up above shows the combination of the old birdhouses surrounded with the beautiful lush green leaves. The picture below - I just loved the way it looked today - it shows Fall is coming. The birdhouses - mixed in with the drying leaves - and the sun coming through the branches - to me - shows strength, courage, stability, and...calm.
