today's good*ness

today:
*i captured images of places and things i have been wanting to photograph in my city. places and things very close to my home; including, the above message etched into the concrete, "LOVE YOURSELF". i had been feeling shy about hitting the streets with my camera in hand, snapping away. today i was still feeling a bit shy and i did it any way! i am looking forward to taking more photos.
*i woke before 4:30 a.m., after sleeping for 4 hours. i stayed in bed until after my alarm went off at 7:15 a.m. however, i am not sure how much sleeping happened between 4:30 a.m. and 7:15 a.m.
*i had a 9 a.m. healing appointment.
*at 10 a.m., after my session o' healin', i went to a nearby cafe. i ordered yogurt with fruit and granola and a pot of peach apricot tea. i chose to sit at a table by the window; the sun warmed my back.
*i enjoyed and i am grateful for this time off (with pay!), christmas eve - jan. 5th.
*while at the cafe i wrote pages and pages about 2008 and 2009 in my "notes" journal.
*in my "creating" notebook i wrote down a couple of exciting new ideas for my blog. stay tuned! more on this soon...very soon.
*i listened to Rosie Thomas' CD, When We Were Small.
*i told the whole truth when my colleague/friend asked me how my Christmas was.
*i used my sweet and new "Twirl & Twine" oven mitt from Anthropologie.
*i took deep breaths.
*i participated in a nearly 90 minute free tele*conference with Christine Kane: "The Unstoppable Power of Intention: 5 Keys to Creating New Outcomes in 2009."

what's your good*ness?

after the quiet sorrow in your last post, it is wonderful to see the gentle healing coming through in this post.

i cannot even begin to fathom the pain that must accompany losing a loved one so prematurely (if such a pain can ever be quantified regardless of when we lose them) but i can only offer you the same kindness you so generously share ~ and for you to know that you are held, supported, in your grief.

just as full moments of good*ness are wished for you too; and so may 2009 be fulled with magical and creative good*ness for you.
