Your Wish is My Desire

What you want is waiting for you.

Day 15 of The Forty Day Plan
I believe in miracles and I know they happen all the time. Many of us think miracles have to be this GREAT BIG EVENT, and we miss the miracles of everyday life.

When I think about all the events that had to take place for me to be here today, writing what you are reading it feels incredible. You had to be born, your parents had to meet and like each other enough. Your grandparents, and great grand parents, and their parents had to you know and here we are today. Now that’s a miracle. Just like these cards created by Barbara Faison, that just resonate with where I AM and tell us to Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance.

Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance by Barbara Faison

Today’s card: What Do I Desire More of in my life?

Desire: “a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen”.
I believe the universe will deliver what we focus our energy on (that strong feeling) and it’s one of the reasons that when we are in a funk, it only gets worse.

In This Moment
I DESIRE MORE: Peace, Laughter, Rest, Relaxation, Hugs, Deep Breaths, Kindness, Abundance, Light- Hardheartedness, and MIRACLES.

And I know the Universe will deliver. I feel lighter just typing the words and I wish the same for you. The Forty Day Plan has me TUNED IN to the UNIVERSE and LIFE FEELS GOOD. Enjoy the concert folks.


What’s Working.

The Forty Day Plan Works

Day 14 of The Forty Day Plan

I’m gonna jump right in with the card for today from Barbara Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card deck.

Barbara Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card

Today has been quite busy at work and at home. I pulled the card early this morning, but I spent more time being annoyed with work and complaining than I’d like to admit, being the spiritual being I am.

Gratitude that Attitude
When I slow down an consider WHAT IS WORKING IN MY LIFE I can’t feel anything but Gratitude. I just spent the Christmas holiday with my Mom who is 84. As I was leaving she said, “You never know what gonna happens day to day. I’m glad you came”. I’m grateful to have friends like Barbara Faison in my life. I’m grateful for family. I’m grateful for this five year old who teaches me how to PLAY. I’m grateful for patience and wisdom.

I have more working for me in life than working against me. And I’m grateful to KNOW THAT.



Body Language…

Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Cards

Day 13 of The Forty Day Plan
I’m telling you these cards are divine. How can they speak to whats going on in my personal life so accurately?

I’ve been complaining about this common cold for the last couple of days, and today, I pulled : My Body Tells Me What It Needs. It’s a listen card from Barbara Faisons Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card deck.

Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Cards

Body Language
My body is telling me to slow down. It’s telling me to take more care with my immune system. My body telling me to rest and I’m listening. I’m drinking elderberry tea and listening to music that makes me feel good. I’m meditating on healing this body. I’m grateful to have tools that make life better. And I’m grateful that I listen.

Live Life Better


Play That Funky Music

Day 12 of The Forty Day Plan
The Forty Day Plan can be applied to anything, and this Forty Days is devoted to Barbara Faisons Relax and Trust Your Guidance Card Deck.

Today’s card:
I Play Music that Feels Good to Me.
My body is in recovery mode from the mean ole common cold and I tell you I haven’t felt this miserable in quite a while. So today’s card is right on time because MUSIC is a powerful way to change your energy, and that’s exactly what I’ve done today. I have used music to motivate this body to move around and I FEEL BETTER.

Today’s card: I Play Music that Feels Good to me.

I won’t get too technical here, but research has shown that listening to music can reduce anxiety, blood pressure, and pain as well as improve sleep quality, mood, mental alertness, and memory.
THERE’S MORE, so google it if you want. And think about how you feel when you listen to certain music. I used to play Tupac’s All Eyes on Me when I wanted to VENT. I haven’t had to play that in a while.

All this to say, figure out how you want to feel…find the music, play it and feel it. One song I play a lot is HAPPY by Pharrell Williams, because HAPPY is a FEELING I want MORE OF. You dig?



Amazing Grace

Day 11 of The Forty Day Plan.

I’m home. Nothing feels better to me than my own bed. I know lots of folks who agree that it feels amazing to return home after a trip and sink into the familiar comforts of home.

There’s nothing more I’d like to do than take a hot shower, drink an adult beverage and crash for the next twelve hours. BUT FIRST, I made a commitment to blog so here I am. Second. I have the worst cold, so medicine over vodka. Third– It would be amazing to sleep for 12 hours but I’m sure I won’t.

Life happens. Things come up. We are busy. It’s always something, but that is the power of committing to 40 Days of Focus.

From Barbara Faison’s Card Deck:

Today’s Card: What in my life is AMAZING?

My bed is amazing. Also my family and friends are amazing. The universe is amazing. The way my body will heal from this cold is amazing. Spending time with my MOM is always amazing. Being home is amazing.

Amazing is what you make it.

Amazing Grace
I’m Grateful for my life and how I live. I’m grateful that when I’ve walked through the darkest hours in this life’s journey, that I came out with my heart intact, and my mind strong and determined.

Thanks to Barbara Faison for her card deck which is the inspiration for this Forty Day Plan. You can check out her offering here!

PS: Enjoy This Amazing Treat.



Need A Hug?

Day 10 of The Forty Day Plan

Merry Christmas Folks. It’s a beautiful unseasonably warm day in Virginia. The children are running around playing loudly and the grown folks are sitting around the kitchen table reminiscing.

It’s a beautiful day and I can’t remember the last time my body felt this bad. So yes card deck,I need a a hug. And especially since it’s flu season and a pandemic, I will hug myself. And I will sit down and relax myself. And that is all.



Take Five

Day 9 of The Forty Plan

I knew today would be a long one. Cooking with Mom. Putting more Christmas lights out with Mom. Mowing the yard on Christmas Eve with Mom. Picking mustard greens with Mom. And I love it. I appreciate that she’s able to get around physically and that her mind is still sharp. And I’m Grateful that I can be here for her favorite holiday.

So I pulled this card early today and I thought how appropriate. HOW CAN I TAKE A MOMENT FOR MYSELF TODAY?

A Shower that’s how and in the middle of the day. I know I am better when I give myself time to exhale and I really mean exhale. I want to give the best energy to my Mom and those around me so I will take five and another five every opportunity I get.

Sunset in the country.

Happy Holidays Folks. Wishing you relaxing days with those you love, starting with Numero Uno and if you start to feel some kinda way…Take Five.


I Don’t  Know

Day 8 of The Forty Day Plan

I give myself permission to not know with ease and grace.  Why worry when it does nothing to move me closer to what I want to experience.

Life has been a lot sweeter for me since I let go of trying to control every aspect of my life.  We are all here to experience. We learn or not learn from them and that is our choice.  I’m okay with not having an answer right now. I’m  okay with not having a question right now. I’M  OKAY IN THIS MOMENT AND THAT’S  ENOUGH.



It’s  day 7 of the Forty Day Plan  and I’m home with Mom for the holidays.  Posting during this few days away from my house may be challenging but I’m  gonna do it.

There’s  always a reason things are put in front of you and I’ve  had some travel hours to give it some thought.

It’s  amazing that I shuffle cards, cut and still pull the same card that I pulled on day five.

I can see clearly through the fog of life.

Big changes are in my future. And even though I don’t know HOW it will happen, I know it is Happening. I’m where I’m supposed to be in this moment-here with Mom enjoying the holiday. I’m  always where I need to be. Now ain’t that cool.

So what’s next? Inhale and exhale and that’s enough for this moment.



I See It

Day 6 of The Forty Day Plan
The Vision for my life is Clear and I move with Ease and Grace.

I am moving though life with ease.

I close my eyes and imagine what my I want my life to look like and it feels better than good. Traveling around the globe, hanging out with Mama, renovating an old general store into a cozy country bed and breakfast. I can see it and I can feel it.

Today’s card from Barbara Faison’s Relax, Listen and Trust Your Inner Guidance Card Deck


I used to worry a lot. If things were good, I’d worry that it wouldn’t last. If things felt horrible, I’d worry that it would last forever.

I’m glad I’ve grown from that person that waited for the other shoe to drop, to being GRATEFUL to have shoes. Worry is a heavy load that I choose to release. Accepting is releasing. Today I accept my clear vision for my life. I don’t worry about the how’s, when’s and but’s, because I KNOW that LIFE happens in DIVINE ORDER.

I can’t wait to see how the UNIVERSE will work this out. Wouldn’t it be nice if every HUMAN had a clear vision for their life?
