Boy! Did that make me laugh!!
A couple weeks ago, it seemed no matter what I was listening too, whether it was on the radio, or on TV, I would hear the phrase, “son of a bad word”; I literally laughed out loud!
I thought to myself, finally a way of expressing ourselves without offending someone! It still packs a punch if you need to “get it out”, but at the same time shows class and respect to those around you, who may be easily offended.
I also thought to myself, “guess someone has run out of swear words”; regardless I thought it was great!
We have all been there, where we needed to let a good ol’ swear come flying out of our mouths! We are all guilty of letting one slip! I will be honest, I am guilty of having let a good one rip, every now and then; part of being human!
The more I thought about it, the more I thought how by saying, “son of a bad word”, would actually smooth things over between two parties, if someone was actually calling someone else the alternate (SOB).
Picture it: Two individuals are not so happy with each other, and then one of them says, “boy, you are such a son of a bad word!” Can you just see the look on the other person’s face? Kind of like a dog who looks confused! 😂😂😂 They would probably forget, at that very moment, what they were arguing about!
The next time you feel the need to let someone have it, with not so nice words, give it a try! I bet before you know it, you both will be laughing and forgetting why your argument even warranted anger with bad words.
Just a thought, and certainly worth a try!

In our household, we always have music on during the day; to be honest, lately, it has helped to pass the time with being at home full-time. Music has been our distraction, our stress reliever, and our exercise. We DANCE!!
When I wake up every morning, I can’t wait to put the music on! Generally, I start with some soothing Reiki music to start my morning off, while I am catching up on messages and having my first coffee. Breaks me in too the day, in a calming way.
Then it happens! I put on a little Good Vibes or Reggae and let the beat get a hold of my soul! In fact, as I’m typing this post, I am listening to Reggae Classics on Spotify; what a great selection of music.
Every single day, the music will differ; as we can’t forget the good old 80’s hair bands and their rock music. Now, I put on AC/DC, Queen, Poison, Def Leppard, and Aerosmith when I’m writing Fiction!
During all of this, I will dance and enjoy! I let the music help me to escape into a World where I’ve never been; it could be a World I will write about, but it is a World of pure bliss. I take my bliss and I will dance into the kitchen to cook dinner, I will take my bliss and sway back and forth while making my bed, and I will take my bliss and let all my creativity out!
It is like painting on a canvas for me, without the paint or the canvas. I feel the strokes of the paint brush touching the canvas in the beat of the music. I know I sound like a Free Spirit Hippie; I guess my true self comes out through music.
My question to you is this:
What music are you listening too? What music brings you to this blissful place? What song “can’t” you get out of your head? What music makes you dance?
We need to share 😀😀 we may be helping someone find the harmony in music and dance!

Wow…what a different World we live in! We were living a normal life, then in a blink of an eye, we were living in isolation. During this time, boy did most of us change. Some went from wearing make-up to going “oh natural”, from dying our hair to letting the roots come on in, from getting dressed up every morning to wearing pj’s all day long and from getting used to going to the gym to (YIPES!) becoming a couch potato!
Through it all, “you all looked perfect!” The true you came shining through! Our personal canvas, our outer shell, was there in its vulnerable state; it was embraced. At that very moment, we all realized we were “all” in this together and we were all experiencing being raw. Vanity didn’t matter so much anymore.
Isn’t it amazing, when we really understand that we are all the same; how we look at ourselves in a different light.
Now, we are adding masks to our wardrobe. Some are buying all the latest trends in masks – who would have thought? Guess what? You Look Perfect!
Wearing masks are now allowing us to all look at each other through the eyes. The eyes into the soul! Where we should have been looking from the start! It isn’t about vanity; it is about seeing the soul in someone’s eyes. Let the eyes speak to you! You will see who you are meant to see.
Just remember, “You Look Perfect!”

Of all families, we are the one’s blessed with sensitive noses! At times, it can be a blessing, but other times, not so much! You get the picture! 365 more words
This picture says it all! You can hear the big breath, the sound of taking all the oxygen in, the feeling of the sun on her face, the sense of peace, and a sense of relief. There is a deeper meaning!
Since we, as a family, have been staying home during this pandemic, I have made many lists. I tend to do that when I have a lot on my mind and I tend to do that when life is changing. The one list I made was, “what am I going to learn and how am I going to benefit in a positive way”, a list that truly changed my perspective. I suppose, these are not your typical lists, they are more a cross between Affirmations and Dreams.
These lists became very deep in the meaning of a peaceful life.
How was I going to live my life in this New World? I decided, I was going to live in a way where every single day, was about gratitude and happiness, and whatever happened in that day, was dealt with, with gratitude and happiness.
Since I’ve been consciously living each day this way, good things have been happening. A sense of peace and calm have been coming over me, and in fact my husband and our daughter have experienced this as well. Worry and anxiousness are fading away.
A new perspective for a New World has given us more drive and motivation in all areas of our lives. The difference is, in the old way of living, with drive and motivation came a sense of hurry. In the New World, instead there is a sense of peace with our drive and motivation.
The New World has given us the opportunity to live our lives as we were truly meant to be living. Focusing on the true beauty of life, following passions and dreams, finding gratitude in the things we used to take for granted (ordering our groceries is just an example), and feeling the true meaning of being grateful from our hearts. Life changing experience, just by staying at home and truly listening to your heart. We had the time to do so.
I feel very fortunate to have had this form of awakening; I will never question my heart or my intuition ever again. I am truly on the right path in my life and I am sincerely grateful.
