Dreams... Positive Thoughts & Answers

I know without reading or researching any further that for someone to become a writer... above all, they must have vision wrapped around imagination and be passionately obsessed with total commitment... I’ve no doubt I possess these qualities and hopefully much, much more.

I’ve also found over the past few months, whilst concentrating as much as possible on my writing, albeit in irregular limited amounts of time, due of course to my own full time working role... Never the less I’m happy to report, I have wonderfully discovered my sense of imagination has heightened not only am I able to visualise my characters and their plots but I’ve discovered these life like characters are coming to me in the night whilst I sleep.... Take last night for instance, Nadya my beautiful Russian peasant came to me in a dream... she talked to me about what I needed to do within the book I’m writing.

The story is about her own mother’s sad shortened life, her difficult birth as she arrives into the world ... it also shares both hers and her grandmothers dramatic life together as servants, struggling to survive. Nadya is fiercely protected by a grandmother who completely adores her.... it also tells of Nadya’s dreams, her loves... including the hateful evil jealousy she desperately tries to escape from. Ultimately Nadya's journey is one of difficulties, love and compassion... tinged unfortunately with betrayal but alas, the path she treads so gently is felt so very hard... has is the harsh punishing journey.

It felt pretty amazing to wake up this morning and feel as if I’d been visited by a friend. To be honest with you, her visit's really helped me out in terms of the way the story should unfold. Nadya was very specific in how the book should open, revealing to me some great new stuff. She advised me to insert something different into my already completed prologue. Nadya talked about the middle of the book but told me I had to work longer on the chapters putting more adventures into her life which should include creating another potential character.... Reflecting on this new information, has pushed me forwards in that I need to work more on Nadya's life within the book. She told me warmly the book if finished is going to be well received... I suppose the proof will be in the pudding, so I’m quite committed to concentrating a lot more on my book ‘Nadya’s Dreams’ ...

Angel will fly back soon ... Have a wonderful week! :) xxx

Myspace Friendship Comments Quotes
Ideas are coming thick and fast but I don’t want to waffle so, I’ve decided to choose an appropriate theme Friendship to compliment last week’s Happiness thoughts......

First let me share something with you... A long, long time ago I was sat in the back of a car... I was feeling in total utter despair of being in the land of the living. I was darkly wondering what the hell was it all about... when the driver became stuck in traffic, which made me slowly look up... The sight that greeted my eyes made tears form and slide down my cheeks...

A young priest was waiting to cross the road but instead he was looking at me, our eyes locked and he smiled... it was the most beautiful smile I have ever seen in the whole of my life... In that very moment I felt as if he knew my thoughts, my life and my loneliness. I felt he cared, I also knew he was telling me, it’s all going to work out and you'll be ok.. I later recalled he had the chance to cross the road but he never took it instead he continued to smile that glorious smile. As we drove on I managed to smile out of courtesy but I knew there and then I would never ever forget his face.

My message is this... his smile came to me just in the nick of time, it also taught me a smile cost nothing to give...I bet on a daily basis you’ve smiled readily and countless times at other people... I think it helps to know sometimes that smile probably makes all the difference. I often wish I could meet the priest again to simply thank him.

Again I’m dedicating this week’s blog to a very special couple who mean the world to me they epitomise the meaning behind this weeks theme... I know along with my family members & friends they will always be there for me no matter what. The reassuring comfort that brings is indescribable.

My dedication this week is to all my lovely mates, not sure where I would be without you all.... but especially to J & F the song I hear which always reminds me of you is... Lionel Ritchie ‘Paradise’ listen to it together... It's one of my most favourite songs in the world...

I had a lovely start to the week with a very good friend giving me a surprise gift. I was delighted as she handed me a beautiful pack of cards ‘Angelic wishes’ Oracle cards by Daisy Foss (Author) and Laraine Krantz (Photographer)... available from & They also hold the Glastonbury Laughter Club every Monday evening 7pm until 9pm at the Daisy Centres Angelic Retreat, Glastonbury, Somerset. So if you’re fortunate enough to live in that wonderful vicinity please go along, you will be made very welcome... we all know a good laugh releases all those pent up ready to explode ‘feel good chemicals’ which flood our body when humour is expressed..... Wish I lived closer Daisy; I would be there with an army of beautiful people!

Eager to see the cards I impatiently opened the pack wanting quickly to see the quotes of inspiration and pictures of my favourite subjects. Quickly shuffling through the cards I became aware that I physically and mentally started to calm, allowing me to read the cards properly... I took in the joyful inspirational information. Initially I felt I’d probably opened the cards at the wrong moment as I was in work and reeling from thoughts of a busy week ahead and silently stressing about the amount of work on my agenda. After becoming aware of the calm that was surrounding me I welcomed it. I decided to take my time and do as the pack recommends... granting myself as many wishes as I wanted so I picked out three wishes.

The 1st wish of life for others... Feeling comfortable I read it several time over... “An open heart, spreading love and healing to all” I felt this was something I always tried to do.

The 2nd wish creation for the world... I really liked the thought behind this wish “Let peace and love prevail around the world”

The 3rd wish of love for myself... “I dance to my own tune, I make a positive influence in the world” I know without a shadow this is what my thoughts and blog are all about.... I continued for a few minutes with those positive thoughts and I backed this up by my own mantra which enabled me to concentrate.... I knew by taking those few minutes out of the day, it totally helped to ground me, making me feel less stressed and ready to go.

My thoughts on friendship have flowed fluently which in turn have helped me to focus on my theme, a theme that’s always been important. On a personal level I really don’t know where I would have been without family and friends and their unconditional love, enveloped by their wonderful friendship. I know I’m a very lucky lady! Some of you will know this has not always been the case but today I rejoice in all the affectionate warmth and endless love I blissfully find myself surrounded by... The important thing to remember here though is it’s very much a two Way Street... I always try to ensure I’m around for family and friends and to be honest even strangers.... I like people, I like differences tinged in uniqueness. If I can I like to help; I know from experience it definitely makes a difference... that difference means the whole world when it’s received.

I also like making new friends. Places like networking sites... i.e. face book, where you can safely virtually meet new and interesting people... People you wouldn’t normally come into contact with... It totally brightens my day.

There are lots of quotes and numerous movies based on friendship... My all time favourite Movie and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you watch it, that’s if you’ve not already... (Keep them hankies handy though) Is “Beaches” starring the one and only Bette Midler.

My top quote for friendship is “it’s not what you say or even what u do that people will remember, it’s how you make them feel”... I’m also aware, Mother Theresa is famous for her profound thoughts so when I read that she wisely quoted “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” I couldn’t help feeling I would dearly loved to have met this lady...

I have always thought the following quote too... “Do not save your loving speeches for your friends till they are dead, Do not write them on their tombstones, speak them rather now instead... Anna Cummins.

I have sometimes questioned if the people I meet wonder if I’m for real... as I truly believe in being myself... I don’t have problems being open, loving and genuine. I would rather be like that then how I use to be, once up on a long time ago.... If you’re in my life and you’re my friend I will always tell you how I feel including how I perceive you... l sometimes wonder if people may be thinking I’m over familiar, but I hold my hands up, I can’t help it... I feel it’s tremendously important to help a person feel welcome, at ease and comfortable.... I know also most people say they feel like they’ve known me for years... when that happen an orchestra sounds off in my heart, and once again I know I’ve happily made a person feel relaxed.

Sincerely I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this week’s article just as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it... Thank you so much for stopping by till next time, Warm smiles with Angel hugs. xxxx

Myspace Happiness Graphics Quotes
My dream’s always been to make a difference, as I've got older it’s just got sharper...
I’m thankful my thoughts have been many this week... Hence the reason it’s been a little difficult to pin point anything in particular to share. Today during my reflecting-time it became one of my numerous light bulb moments...

I decided I wanted the theme to be based on ‘happiness’ but... I also wanted to put a new twist to my regular ‘thoughts of the week’ Soooooo..... I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s blog to a certain couple... they know who they are.

I smiled at the thought of dedicating the week’s blog to certain individuals, for me it’s going to make it a bit more special than is normal. However, I must stipulate it doesn’t mean that issues discussed within the blog are in any way, shape or form directed towards any specific individual... it just means I’m acknowledging a deep respect in addition to affectionately thinking of them as I produce my latest article. Also along with this dedication is a request for them to know I’m also happily dedicating to them a beautiful but soppy song... Please click on my ‘UTUBE’ (left hand side) where you can type in artists name and title of song. Turn up the volume my friends as I know only too well this will enable you to further feel the whole atmospheric ambience that I so love to create. With that last thought in mind, the couple I dedicate this week’s thoughts to are L & J and their beautiful family J.C.M...

L & J, the song that reminds me of you both is sung by ‘Michael Buble’ it’s called “LOST” I know that J is not overly romantic but as if by instinct I also know that doesn’t mean it’s not nestling there within his very soul... I just think sometimes a person may get a little nervous about displaying certain signs of affection and some of us cringe at the thought of rejection..... Anyway this song is the song I imagine J... dedicating to L... Listen to it together, that’s the key! I also know life is pretty hectic for you right now, but calm deep breaths and don’t forget take time out, drop everything even if it’s for a walk, a meal etc it makes all the difference... believe me!

I chose the theme happiness because so many times I’ve felt we occasionally manage to take that subject along with life very much for granted... It never fails to blow me away the amount of people I meet on a daily basis, who would seriously give everything they own just to glimpse happiness and be allowed to hold it for a few seconds... I also know through my own sensitivity and my experiences of many different levels of life I have personally led... not forgetting my present working role, all constanly remind me of how I'm so unequivocally blessed. Again my friends in life I’ve been at both ends of the spectrum.

I know it may be hard to believe but once up on a time, I was so undeniably sad... I would often twist my hands, wringing them tightly as I wished with all my heart not to be here treading along life’s highway... I desperately wanted to close my tired eyes, see through the black stillness I observed every night during restless sleep. I didn’t want to continue feeling enveloped by wretched misery that I exhaustedly carried around on my back holding it up with my shoulders... I’m very happy to report that was a long time ago... As a consequence I’ve always enthused, you have to live in another person’s shoes to get a true sense of how that particular individual is really feeling... but come on we all know we don’t really want to do that, as for one reason or another some people’s lives are not particularly happy.

My message here today is this... I know without doubt for me happiness is a choice; it’s something we can make for ourselves and others... Have you ever noticed for instance, the smallest things in life including something as simple as a smile, or a warm compliment can and will bring the biggest smile to the saddest face... that’s because in complimenting a person it gives them a pull, they flutter inside and their circulation moves faster, increasing those feel good chemicals... but best of all is this, you’ve personally made that person feel valuable and I sincerely hope we all know how that feels... Spreading happiness by making good choices, especially those that have an impact on people and how their feeling doesn’t have to cost a lot... shopping for someone who’s poorly... supporting someone who’s going through a tough time... listening to someone, being there for family and friends, just using your observational skills by being observant of the people around you... As we all know, there are some really proud people on this planet who feel they’ve failed if they ask for help... So keep eyes and ears open, be sensitive. Remember in helping someone else including yourself, it helps to make a difference... If we all did that, what a continually beautiful world we would all live in.

We’re all realistic; we know we cannot do everything, but one thing’s for sure..... We can certainly do something.

I’m finishing off this week with a couple of inspirational quotes that I particularly like... Hope you do too... they are simple but effective...

“The only gift is a portion of thyself” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson.

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.... You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

My wings are asleep my friend... until next time :) x

Heal the past..Live the present..Dream the future...

Nature Comments Natural Comments Nature Graphics Life Quotes
My thoughts this week are running very much along the lines of what ifs, why’s and wherefores and what you might do about it...but only if you so wish!

I believe especially if we are predisposed to stubbornness we will persistently become unwaveringly transfixed, in our own perception of any given facts whilst we traipse along the pathways of experiencing life; we become inclined to believe we are right, everyone else is wrong. We know best, everyone else knows nothing. We’re not budging, because we've been hurt the most and it’s always everybody else's fault etc. In a heartbeat it can become all blown out of all proportion, very often selfishly developing into Me...Me... Me...

I’ve lived long enough to know this kind of hypnotic thinking can and will ruin lives... It often holds the human race in a spell binding, riveting spot...which then becomes terribly hard to step out from because as we all know and heaven forbid... that’s like admitting we’re wrong.

Through my own life’s experiences, I’ve discovered certain sentences and their meanings have impacted on my thoughts, subsequently having a huge influence on my life. Which brings me back to the.... Questions... The what if’s... The why‘s... and wherefore’s..... If you see a word or you read a sentence, think about it... hopefully it will enable your own thought process to search out the answer....I have faith and I believe that each and every person magically holds within them the answers to all their troubles and sometimes it can just be a matter of simply not being so intractable. For instance if you discover any of the sentences below apply to your own existence how would it make you feel and what could you do about it...

What would you do, if through your own stubborn stupidity you lost all your family and friends? What would you think if you discovered it was because of your individual character? Then you were reliably informed, it was your difficult persona which made it impossible for anyone to get close or through to you and that maybe you’re needy, blameless, self-righteous personality with its self destruct mode was too much for family members to bear.

What would you think if you could predict & repair yours as well as everyone else’s future? And you plainly saw the only way through for all those concerned... was that YOU had to take a deep breath and forgive everyone everything... I cringe because I hear you laugh... but wait, think about it... don’t you truly believe losing your family and friends is not worth winning the argument... that it’s imperative to agree to disagree. Don’t you also agree it’s important to make peace with your past, so it won’t screw up your future?

What if you suddenly understood that life’s too short to waste by hating anyone, and then as if in a vision you see all the negative time you spend name-calling certain individuals could quite possible be your own down fall... Why? Because that nasty behaviour ends up isolating you from others, in the end they don’t actually see you as a person they just hear your horrible thoughts expressed via your abhorrence... they very quickly lose trust in you because after all you’re not trustworthy, especially when you can talk behind other family members and friends backs.... Hopefully, I pray you will recognize quite clearly Karma is circular... So please don’t forget, put that jealous envy away. Stop showing the mirror two sides to your face. Cleanse yourself. Be genuine, open your heart and be kind. Take care of others. After all... that’s how you want others to treat you and your children... Don’t you? And whatever you do try not to be so conceited that you perceive you know everybody’s thoughts and feelings... I have always found it highly offensive to be told how I feel and how I should act!!!

I’m honest enough to share right now... I have not always been mindful of these things, thankfully for me wisdom came with age. I'm sure if anyone made an honest comment on the subject, I’m convinced they would wish they'd not made quite so many mistakes. I find the wisdom I hold in my heart has in the past often been wished for, I’m quite sure less mistakes would have been tripped over.... But we all know life doesn’t work like that hence the mistakes, the lessons and the acquired knowledge.... manifesting wisdom.... the trick is to bring the magic from those lessons learned into one’s life and share willingly...

Just like you I also know life isn’t fair even so it’s still good. I have often found it helps and is more healing to cry with someone rather than cry alone... it’s also my belief that it’s ok to let your children see u cry. You also know don’t you, there is no one but you, in charge of your own happiness... Be mindful of this when you recall that your children only have one childhood. Don’t compare your life to others, you have no idea what their journey is all about. Just try to remember however bad or good a situation is, it will change... and I know that time heals almost everything... I say rather loudly GIVE TIME, TIME...

I personally believe it’s never too late to have a happy childhood; that 2nd attempt can be fabulous because having control puts you in a good position enablng those around you to enjoy the experience as well.... Do yourself a favour though, let your imagination aid you in remembering what it was like to be a child...? Recollect how you believed in miracles. Try to get outside every day, miracles are waiting to happen, so no matter how you feel get up, dress up and show up.

What would you do if you were told your fate was in your own hands? What would you do if that fate was manageable despite what you originally thought? Let me tell you in the gentlest way... Life is definitely not tied up with a bow but please remember it’s still a beautiful gift... In the end my friend I won’t lie to you, I have discovered it all helps enormously if you’re truly loved... for some reason things seem easier... I should know, I’ve been at both ends of the spectrum ... but for each and every one of us despite everything I believe the best is yet to come.

We all have choices, we all make thoughts... thoughts become things, all you have to do is choose the good ones... because as we all know this is not a dress rehearsal, this is it! What you and I do in this life we leave behind... so it's very important for everyone, especially family and friends that they know unequivocally, without a shade of doubt... we were genuine and they were loved, wanted and needed....

Well my friends I sincerely hope your thinking caps are on and blinking, causing some serious thoughts even helping you reconsider old issues that happily might not be as out of reach as you maybe once thought.... If it is too late, sadly sometimes it is.... all you have to do is learn from the lesson, making sure it doesn’t happen again...

Till next time.... :) xxx

Kind Words.........

Facebook Graphics Myspace Fairies Gothic Angels Mermaids
Whilst sitting still... calmly pondering my week’s thoughts along with its possible theme, I was interrupted by a very good friends email..... Reading it, I knew instantly divine intervention had waited, happily steering me towards my next wonderful message and although the message is the same I have edited it slightly, adding fresh ideas and views appropriately...

One day a teacher asked her students to list on two sheets of paper the names of the other students in the room, asking them to remember and leave a space between each name. Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in their paper. That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.

On Monday she gave each student his or her list. Before long, the entire class was smiling.

'Really?' she heard whispered... 'I never knew I meant anything to anyone!' and, 'I didn't know others liked me so much,' were most of the comments.

No one ever mentioned those papers in class again. She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose. The students were happy with themselves and one another.

That particular group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in Vietnam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student. She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before. He looked so handsome, so mature. The church was packed with his friends. One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin. The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin. As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her.

'Were you Mark's maths teacher?' He asked. She nodded: 'yes.' Then he said: 'Mark talked about you a lot.'

After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon. Mark's mother and father were there waiting to speak with his teacher.

‘We want to show you something,' his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket he continued 'They found this on Mark when he was killed. We thought you might recognize it.' Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times. The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him.

'Thank you so much for doing that,' Mark's mother said. 'As you can see, Mark treasured it.'

All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, 'I still have my list. It's in the top drawer of my desk at home.’ Chuck’s wife said, 'Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album.'

'I have mine too,' Marilyn said. 'It's in my diary'

Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. 'I carry this with me at all times,' Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: 'I think we all saved our lists'

At this point the teacher finally sat down and cried. She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.

The density of people in society is so thick that we forget life will end one day. No one knows when that day will be. So please, tell the people you love and care for, they're special and that they are very important. Tell them, before it's too late.

One Way To Accomplish This Is: Try where possible to reiterate this message, forward it on. If you don’t send it, you may once again have possibly passed up a wonderful opportunity to do something nice and beautiful. The more people you share this with; will enable us all to better reach out to those you care about.

Remember the old saying, you may reap what you sow.

What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own. I will never tire of this message and for those that read my Blog regularly... you will know and understand from its birth throughout its development, I've always tried to put that special message across.... it’s so very important that we take on board the words, meanings and thoughts behind this powerful, and beautiful message... I’ve always felt that trying ones best to instil positivity into someone else’s very soul, is the way forward.

Having previously shared these thoughts... sadly I’m aware; it’s not always possible to inspire each and every human being. There are a few of us living in this sphere who for one reason or another, mistrust. These individuals feel other people don’t do anything for nothing and they go on to refuse to accept another’s generosity thinking the very worst of that person without any real reason or just cause.... I’m afraid it’s their loss, sometimes we have to take that risk or we may go on to live a life full of insecurities and what if’s....I’ll quickly add, It doesn’t mean you have to trust everyone you meet in life that would be silly, we all know not everyone deserves our trust and loyalty... Fortunately most of us are blessed with an inner instinct or radar to help us decide who’s right for us and who’s not, all I’m trying to say is... try not to be rigid in your thinking, keep an open mind and especially try not to be too quick to judge... very often you will be pleasantly surprised.

My other thought of course, is my recent proposal from the greatest man on this planet.... We're very happy and would like to thank everyone for their wonderful cards, flowers and good wishes.... A fabulous wedding is going to take place in a beautiful location... Doug and I are looking forward to sharing our very special day with family and close friends.......

Before I close let me write my wish for all of you.... I sincerely hope we all have a lot less 'snow and ice' so that the country can get back to normal.... I know some of you love this snow... *smile* but come on, enough is enough.... Till next time Mwah :) xxxx

Coming of age.......................

best Wild Graphics codes and Women images Get Piczo Women Comment Codes
I live in a world; some call it a lost world because it exists as a world within a world.... Both worlds are similar with one exception... In my world when you’re born, a very special birth-box is made for you... in all completed boxes, special secrets are safely placed... these secrets are only relevant to you, your life and family history. When you reach your 25th birthday, the allocated box holder has an important job; he gives you the box and explains the seriousness of opening it.

On such a day I was given a beautifully ornate intricate looking box... The box appeared slightly smaller than a shoe box, safely hidden within its rich ornamental decorative trim was a tiny lock ... the person who gave me my box looked serious. He gently explained he alone held the key but before he could pass it over, he needed to strongly advise me of the seriousness of opening it, although he stipulated the decision could only be mine ...I was further advised any good or bad consequences would also belong to me, I would be answerable whatever the outcome.

Politely I Thanked the box holder. Immediately, I asked what was in the box... shrugging he explained in a matter of fact way... secrets of individual boxes were mostly unknown, but in his own limited experience, he’d heard good and bad stories. Holding my birth box I felt good vibrations. I'd heard so many stories about these boxes. I knew certain secrets contained, could or would give the box bearer good or again bad experiences.

Staring off into space so very deep in my own thoughts, I gave the box holder my decision. I firmly decided to keep my box, I knew I was going to open it... but not right now, I needed more time...

We're Getting Married......

I have so much to tell... The year has started out with yet another dream coming true. A few minutes past midnight, a little way into this New Year of ours.... my gorgeous partner proposed so romantically to me.

He tenderly asked would I marry him? We’re no spring chickens but I can tell you this, I felt like a 16yr old girl as he waited for my answer.... I smiled, we wrapped our arms around each other and I whispered I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life, as he has made me so abundantly happy. My ring is beautiful ... A sparkling diamond solitaire, set high in white & yellow gold... We haven’t set a date yet, but I have a strong suspicion this won’t be a long engagement...

We celebrated with a little drink and then we laughed until 4.00am playing on our brand new shiny black Wii.... I’ll be the first to tell you this I found myself to be very good at table tennis, I think I’m the champion *smile* but Doug did the best at archery and cycling... During the evening so many wonderful messages from family and friends wishing us a happy new year...both my lovely brothers managed to get messages and phone calls to me at midnight which I thought was rather clever as we all know messages never get through at that time... My beautiful girl and her fiancĂ© were out partying the night away with their friends....

Our new year’s day will be spent laughing, playing, cooking, talking, planning and chilling... Oh and maybe a little entertaining... The one thing I’m so totally sure of is this... We are looking forward to 2010 and I’m especially looking forward to sharing it with all the special people in my life.... Thank you for being there! And to our lovely family in Inverness, our thoughts were with you on New Year’s Eve and the tremendous amount of snow that halted your Hogmanay celebrations.... The firework display from Edinburgh was spectacular ... sincerely hope you’re safe and warm! Till next time Mwah :) xxx
