The Light Within

Eons ago, in a life surrounded by anger and depression, I blamed other people and other circumstances for the way I felt.

Then one day *BANG*, I woke up and discovered that we have a choice, I have a choice, you have a choice: to be angry, to be sad, to be happy, to be content, regardless of the people and things around you in that moment.

This was pre-internet days when this kind of info was rather scarce. Amazon and it’s self-help books existed but I lived in a teeny town far, far away where shipping prices deterred any purchases.

It must have been the universe that whispered this knowledge in my ears, at a moment I was ready to hear it.

About the same time, I realized that the sun is always shining within ourselves. We are the sun, I am the sun, you are the sun. ALWAYS. It’s just that we sometimes don’t see the sun within: there are clouds in the way (depression); there’s a storm on the horizon (on-going drama& arguments with others; there’s smog from pollution (angry thoughts)….

Sometimes I forget that the sun is always shining within. And get angry, get sad, beat myself up…

Then when I set aside the time go out in nature, go to an art exhibit, listen to creative music, spend time with special friends: voilà, that sun comes out and shines.

The hard part is to realize that the sun is ALWAYS there, even without the art, music, nature, friendship.


Can you see the sun within?

Chocolate Cake & the 2nd Day of Spring

HelloMyGoddessHello my lovely goddess!

It’s spring!!!!!!!!!

I love all the seasons (some more equally than others) but spring is my special darling.


The days are getting longer.

The weather is getting warmer (kind of).

And best of all:

the pesky mosquitoes haven’t hatched yet!


Oh,wait, there IS one thing  better than the lack of mosquitoes:

my favorite daughter’s birthday  is tomorrow!

(I have one daughter BTW.)


I get to bake a chocolate cake (and eat it, too!)
Can life get any better than that? WOOT WOOT!


With the birth of spring and the arrival of flowers,
I just wanted to tell all you goddesses here
that no matter whether the rain is raining
or the sun is sunning,

YOU are the light and YOU are shining!

You may not be perfect (I am kinda not perfect either).
Perhaps you’re feeling down today
or maybe you are super duper up in the clouds, dancing with the rainbows, and finding pots of gold.
(Oh, if you find any gold coins, rubies, and emeralds in those pots, you know where to find me.)

Whatever you are doing, whatever you are feeling right now:

YOU are awesome just the way you are!


Spring has sprung,
This post is done,
Can’t wait to smell the flowers!


Talk to you next week, my lovelies!
