G is for Give and Visualizing One's Dreams

This week the affirmation letter is G. It took me  awhile to settle on GIVE, but that action fit in well with the visualizing course I am taking through True North.

This week I came across so many interesting places and would like to share ("give") you some of these sites:
"Each day, a gift" . Patti Digh
What a beautiful way to describe our day.

I had heard about Patti Digh's book "Life is a Verb" (which sort-of lead me to the affirmations - one of the catalyst's anyway - even though I haven't read it - yet).

I ended up at her website "37 Days" and discovered the book and the reason behind the title "37 Days".
Quite moving and makes you realize just how precious life is.

For those who had great fun taking part in "Wreck That Journal", Grammy has started a new blog "Wrecking Sisters Reunited"! Sounds like it will be a great way to reconnect and have fun creating.

Brene Brown's blog "Ordinary Courage" has much to offer as well. She believes in authenticity and being your true self.

I had fun discovering which part of the day I was! I am Sunrise. As I read the list many of the items, it hit a chord.

" You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life.
You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.
You are a person of reflection and meditation.
You start and end every day by looking inward.
Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy.
You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.
All in all, you know how to love life for what it is
- not for how it should be. "

Check out the "What Time of Day are you ?" Quiz.

(And if someone can tell me how I can post this type of copy in my blog I would be grateful! I tried and could not get it to post here. I also wanted to post the you tube video of the "JK Wedding Entrance Dance - you have to see that one! I am learning my way around the net slowly - but my kids aren't home anymore and they were the ones to help out - even when they rolled their eyes at me! Thanks!)

I have been taking a Vision Journalling Workshop through TrueNorth (with Collage Diva), and have been really enjoying it. I have been working through many exercises to help focus on my dreams.

As I completed this collage tonight, the images and words I chose related to Health, Family and Friends, and Creativity. These are all issues that have come up through the Moon Dreamboards and Wishcast Wednesday as well.

The longer I focus on them, the more I can internalize them!

Thanks for sharing these sites. You really find some great stuff. Also, thanks for sharing your collages, they are so positive and uplifting. I find magazine collages very relaxing and fun to do.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
It is good to be able to give back - even a little!
Take care everyone!

Thanks Bev for directing me to Kavinda'a blog. What a truly beautful story and one we need to remember. It is so true that we can be valued for just being there for whoever needs support or help at any given time. If everyone helped their neighbours, the world would be a happier place for sure. Thank you again for sharing this.

It sounds like you are getting a lot out of the True North class. That's awesome!
