Here Is Wonderful

Posted on

For  many  2016 was a tough year.  For some including me it was a time  to let go of some situations and people who were not conducive to personal or professional growth.  We’re here  now  -2017 has arrived.  The New Year brings us promise  and hope for positive change.   As I move in a new  direction  with a new year  in bloom, despite challenges, there is a  is a lot to be grateful for  and I am happy that I am present.    I learned to enjoy life without the need for prestige.   I have a wonderful group of friends I enjoy.   I  live in a wonderful neighborhood, Brookland, DC.  It has taken  me years to get to a place where I choose peace and I am still not an expert.   It helps that Koko is one of my “life coaches.”    Though she likes attention,  for Koko it’s often a  matter of finding the right box for a nap.

Choose Peace

Posted on

 

Koko, the domestic shorthair and Jean Claude, the Black Bombay live the life. They eat, venture outside a bit, play and sleep. They enjoyed Christmas especially helping to unwrap presents.

Yes we are in the midst of the holiday season. New Year’s is coming. Christmas is past. Kwanzaa is here. These events implore upon us to celebrate, spend time with family and friends, enjoy good food, fun, rest, relax and find spiritual and life renewal.

Still there are a lot of people who choose negativity. They show you their dark side : envy, naysaying or inappropriate behavior all the while proclaimIng their good intentions. Many also live in a constant state of turmoil or indecision and want you to embrace their drama. They want to drag you into their nonsense.

It is time to cut the cord. Banish these bottom feeders from your life. It is time to seek new options, new horizons, positivity, hope. Choose peace.

New and Different

Roxie and Jean Claude seem to finally be getting settled at CCL’s house. It has been a tough transition for me and for Roxie I suspect who still gives me looks of longing whenever I visit her at CCL’s house.   But everything must change and if we allow it things  change for the better.  It’s a balancing act really – I heard an inspirational message “Don’t let your past determine your future – press on.”  Certainly  we’ve all faced some challenges in 2011 but we are blessed that 2012 is here.  Me, I’m looking forward to visiting Roxie and Jean Claude often.
