I wasn't going to blog at all this week. Have been taking a break and refueling. But when I came in from being away for a week, one of the first articles I saw was regarding Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Michael Jeffries' "marketing campaign" for the preppy clothing line (quoted in the meme above).
“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
It's raining in New Mexico. In the desert, rain is always a welcomed gift. But I'm particularly happy to see it raining today. The garden has awakened from its long winter's nap and tiny, colored buds are appearing.

"Well-ordered self-love is right and natural."
"I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don't have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?"
While I am an expert on nothing but my own experience, I have a considerable amount of experience in dealing with issues related to self-love and self-acceptance.
There seems to be some misconception out there regarding what practicing positive thinking actually means. Some people appear to believe they just "can't" be a Positive Thinker or Happy Person because, no matter how hard they try, they still get angry or sad or frustrated or disappointed.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
While I cannot jump on board with those writers who proclaim that "there is no such thing as a 'negative' emotion," I can stand by the general premise that all emotion has its purpose and, if properly attended to, is useful.
Where have I been? Good question, I have been everywhere and no where all at once. I may have mentioned that I am diagnosed Bipolar II, I am also a very sensitive, you could say empath. The sensitivity that I have to others feelings is a lot to handle. I really want to learn on my path to spirituality how to control my sensitivities.
So far, they are not controlled at all. It tends to wear me out and then I stop doing much of anything. I have started a giveaway and review blog but really in the hopes at learning how to earn a bit of money online and for some fun. You could check it out at 1 Stressed Mom and 2 Girls if you wish. I also still run Bipolar2happiness.com.
I haven’t been here or written much for a while now. Mainly because we were looking for a place to live and then moving, along with the kid’s school and other issues in life. I also have worked more on my main blog Bipolar2happiness.com.
I started my path to getting to know my soul then it kind of went by the way side yet not really. I feel closer to my spiritual self than I did a few weeks ago. I can’t really explain why but now that we have our own place and our own space life has given me a chance for some spiritual thinking. I don’t know if that makes sense to any of you.
I have thought about the misconception people have of others. I have watched people and listened to them and can see that we are all spiritual beings, we need to pull together in this life and care about one another, help each other along by sharing that love and light we all posses. I find it sad that most of us have no clue what that means, even I am not 100 percent sure what it means to me yet.
I need to do more in the way of meditation, and research into different spiritual qualities. I am working toward it now and hope to get back on track.
I wish for you all peace, happiness, connection with your true self and Love!
It has taken me 40 years to realize this fact. We are all very Spiritual, we all have special gifts. One of mine is instinct and a knowing about certain things. I have been told it is called Clairsentience and when I look it up I relate to it all. I can actually feel how others feel and if I concentrate on what they are doing I can feel exactly how it feels for them. This helped to learn a lot of things as a child and then I realized here in my 40′s it’s a gift along with my instincts.
I haven’t developed these skills to the level I would like but I am working on it, hence the starting of this blog. Although, since I started this blog I have not been able to continue the research I was doing to the extent I was as I have now taken a part-time job and have moved and well life just got really busy. I am hoping to get back on track in the next few weeks.
I just wanted to share this with you! Love to you all..
MORE WORDS FROM MOTHER TERESA:
I have found that being happy and sharing it with others can light up an otherwise dull day, for me and for them.
I hope you all go out and share your love and light with anyone you come in contact with, a simple smile and hello to a stranger might just lift their mood and make their day!
This is just a short post to share the words of Mother Teresa..
“People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.” – Mother Teresa
